Abstract

This article first examines the question of a woman's personal accountability to her family or children for reproductive decisions and then shifts to the question of public accountability. Following an analysis of the ethical and legal underpinnings of individual rights and commmunity interests, it concludes that justifications to manipulate women's reproductive decisions are fatally flawed.
