Each year, about 4 million American women become pregnant and decide to carry their pregnancies to term. Does the law see a woman differently once she becomes pregnant? While there are countless legal contexts in which a woman's pregnancy might change her legal position, this panel will focus on two that are particularly controversial. First, does her relationship with her employer change? Secondly, is she free choose or decline medical treatment in the same way she was before she became pregnant?
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) is one of the nation's leading progressive legal organizations. Founded in 2001, ACS is a rapidly growing network of lawyers, law students, scholars, judges, policymakers and other concerned individuals. Our mission is to promote the vitality of the U.S. Constitution and the fundamental values it expresses: individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, access to justice, democracy and the rule of law. For more information about the organization, which has established student chapters at more than 160 law schools around the country and lawyer chapters in 30 cities, please visit www.acslaw.org

**Sexuality, Health and Human Rights**
Sonia Corrêa, Coordinator of Sexuality Policy Watch, Brazilian Interdisciplinary AIDS Association, Rio de Janeiro Richard Parker, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences, Columbia University Rosalind Petchesky, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, Hunter College & the Graduate Center, CUNY
Join the authors to celebrate the publication of their new book - Sexuality, Health and Human Rights (Routledge, London and New York, August 2008). This ground breaking work provides a critical analysis of shifting theoretical perspectives and activist strategies regarding sexual politics and their larger geopolitical context in the twenty-first century. Long in the making, the book surveys the "Global 'Sex' Wars" in the shadow of both religious resurgence and political conservatism; new research agendas in the face of biomedical discourses and HIV/AIDS; and "The Promises and Limits of Sexual Rights," both from within international LGBTQI and feminist human rights activism and beyond. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
