Abstract

Difficult questions arise in the wake of Roe’s reversal, not least in respect of how fundamental rights, laws, and social policies will have to be amended to enable the dark practicalities of legalizing state-enforced births and relinquishments. Templates and blueprints already exist: these can be found amongst the harrowing testimonies of many women and children who survived the ‘mother and baby homes’ and ‘orphanages’ over the past century, in various jurisdictions.
