Invoking issues and disagreements salient in feminist legal theory, this brief essay compares and contrasts the Supreme Court’s cases on assisted suicide and reproductive freedom along three axes: the scope of substantive due process, the different treatment of actions and omissions, and the possibilities for federal versus state regulation of matters of self-determination and intimate life.
Keywords: feminist legal theory, substantive due process, omissions, federalism
