The Power of Acting As If: Prefigurative Politics and Statutory Abortion Law
Abortion Law, Statutory Abortion Law, Abortion Rights, Morgentaler, Canada
This symposium asks about statutory laws to codify abortion rights, and, by the question, suggests that such laws are distinct from statutes that restrict abortion, the common focus of abortion rights. We are much more familiar with abortion rights as a challenge to, rather than as the basis of, statutory law.
