Intro from New Guest Blogger Seema Mohapatra and SEALS Roundtable on Reproductive Rights and Class

I am excited to be here this month at Prawfs. Thanks to Dan for giving me this opportunity to convert from avid Prawfs reader to guest blogger. A brief intro: I teach Torts, Health Law, and Business Organizations at Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando, Florida.  I am currently working on a project on the importance of trust in the public health regulation of tobacco, and I just completed an article on reproductive justice in oncofertility, both of which I plan to blog about this month. My prior work has focused on various areas of biotechnology and how they intersect with race, gender, class, and ethics.  I am looking forward to a dialogue on some of these issues this month.

I also had to plug my session at SEALS  this weekend, and  I encourage those of you who will be in Palm Beach to consider attending the Roundtable, organized by Rachel Rebouche and Naomi Cahn, on  “The Intersection of Reproductive Rights and Class,” which will take place at 3 pm on Sunday August 4th.    First, Susan Appleton, June Carbone, Naomi Cahn, Jody Madeira, April Cherry, and  I will be discussing issues related to class, inequality, and assisted reproductive technologies.   Then, Rachel Rebouche, Jeffrey ParnessElizabeth Sepper, and Mary Ziegler will be talking about topics related to reproduction, parentage, and inequality.  It should be a fascinating, interactive session -- and yes, worth leaving the beach for!
