This study considers to what extent the state can regulate the reproductive choices of individuals. It analyzes the manner in which the law regulates both the avoidance of reproduction through abortion and contraception and the promotion of procreation through assisted reproduction and surrogacy.

The controls which restrict the autonomy of pregnant women, and the extent to which they are free to choose the means of delivery of their children, are also explored. The author examines the legal status of the embryo and foetus, and the rights of children in respect to injuries suffered before birth.

The text concludes by considering the effects that the ability to control human reproduction have had on legal attitudes towards procreation and parenthood.
