Toward a model rule Statutory imprecision and surrogate decision-making for pregnant women
by Appel, Jacob M., M.P.H., Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, 2013, 103; 1535747
Abstract (Summary)

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?
