96 Minnesota Law Review Headnotes 31 (2012)
In this review essay written for the Minnesota Law Review Headnotes, Professor Crawford evaluates I. Glenn Cohen’s Regulating Reproduction: The Problem with Best Interests, 96 MINNESOTA L. REV. 101 (2011). Professor Cohen’s questioning of “best interests” logic destabilizes assumptions commonly shared by many legal scholars. This review essay applies Professor Cohen’s critique to the context of income taxation of surrogates. The “unmasking” project of Regulating Reproduction — designed to reveal the authentic reasons for reproductive regulation — enhances the discourse about reproductive law and policy.
