|Title:||The Legal Status of a Living Abortus||Contributor(s):||Eburn, Michael E (author)||Publication Date:||1997||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5019||Abstract:||Les Haberfield's article, "The Transplantation of Human Fetal Tissue in Australia: Abortion, Consent and Other Legal Issues" appeared in (1996) 4 JLM 144. In that article he raised the issue of the legal status of a fetus that, although aborted, is in fact born alive. In this article I argue that any such fetus is, at law, a legal person and must be treated accordingly. This develops the suggestion made by Haberfield that such a fetus is "analogous" to a child, and has consequences for abortion practitioners, and for fetal tissue transplantation and experimentation.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Law and Medicine, 4(4), p. 373-378||Publisher:||Law Book Company||Place of Publication:||North Ryde, Australia||ISSN:||1320-159X||Field of Research (FOR):||180199 Law not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.thomsonreuters.com.au/catalogue/productdetails.asp?id=965||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 182
