FEBRUARY 18

Various women's health law issues will be explored together with their societal, economical, and general legal implications. Specifically, one panel will address the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' new rule regarding prenatal downs-syndrome screening, and how this rule intersects with the law and social policy. The second panel will discuss contraceptives, looking to pharmacist refusal and health insurance policies regarding contraceptives. Finally, the third panel will look to the HPV vaccine, exploring medical reasons behind the vaccine and the effects of the vaccine being mandated by some states.
