    Reproduction misconceived: why there is no right to reproduce and the implications for ART access.Georgina Antonia Hall - forthcoming - Journal of Medical Ethics.
    Reproduction is broadly recognised as fundamental to human flourishing. The presumptive priority of reproductive freedom forms the predominant position in the literature, translating in the non-sexual reproductive realm as an almost inviolable right to access assisted reproductive technology (ART). This position largely condemns refusal or restriction of ART by clinicians or the state as discriminatory. In this paper, I critically analyse the moral rights individuals assert in reproductive pursuit to explore whether reproductive rights entitle hopeful parents to ART. I demonstrate (...)

    Reconceiving Reproduction: Removing “Rearing” From the Definition—and What This Means for ART.Georgina Antonia Hall - 2024 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 21 (1):117-129.
    The predominant position in the reproductive rights literature argues that access to assisted reproductive technologies (ART) forms part of an individual’s right to reproduce. On this reasoning, refusal of treatment by clinicians (via provision) violates a hopeful parent’s reproductive right and discriminates against the infertile. I reject these views and suggest they wrongly contort what reproductive freedom entitles individuals to do and demand of others. I suggest these views find their origin, at least in part, in the way we define (...)

    A little bit pregnant: towards a pluralist account of non-sexual reproduction.Georgina Antonia Hall - forthcoming - Journal of Medical Ethics.
    Fertility clinicians participate in non-sexual reproductive projects by providing assisted reproductive technology (ART) to those hoping to reproduce, in support of their reproductive goals. In most countries where ART is available, the state regulates ART as a form of medical treatment. The predominant position in the reproductive rights literature frames the clinician’s role as medical technician, and the state as a third party with limited rights to interfere. These roles broadly align with established functions of clinician and state in Western (...)

    Gillick competence: an inadequate guide to the ethics of involving adolescents in decision-making.Avraham Bart, Georgina Antonia Hall & Lynn Gillam - 2024 - Journal of Medical Ethics 50 (3):157-162.
    Developmentally, adolescence sits in transition between childhood and adulthood. Involving adolescents in their medical decision-making prompts important and complex ethical questions. Originating in the UK, the concept of Gillick competence is a dominant framework for navigating adolescent medical decision-making from legal, ethical and clinical perspectives and is commonly treated as comprehensive. In this paper, we argue that its utility is far more limited, and hence over-reliance on Gillick risks undermining rather than promoting ethically appropriate adolescent involvement. We demonstrate that Gillick (...)
