This paper seeks to investigate how concerns regarding pregnant women have been resolved by state legislatures when drafting surrogacy and advance directive statues. It also examines two related questions: Have narrow concerns regarding a relatively rare phenomenon had a significant and potentially detrimental impact on overall state policy regarding end-of-life decision making? And what lessons can be drawn from these experiences for understanding future policy battles at the nexus of bioethics and public health?
