Virtual Detroit Mercy Law Review Symposium: Governing Bodies: Bodily Autonomy and the Law
Friday, March 4, 2022 (TBD) via Virtual
Detroit Mercy Law Review presents the 106th Symposium on Governing Bodies: Bodily Autonomy and the Law. Bodily autonomy has been regulated or banned on many levels throughout our history, ranging from slavery to the right to an abortion, assisted suicide, transgender rights, and even issues surrounding the present COVID-19 pandemic. While these laws and regulations have led to controversy and protest, it remains unclear where exactly the line should be drawn limiting government power over our bodies, or if there should be a line at all.
For more information, visit the Law Review Symposium page.
