Abstract

This article examines feminism and "connection" in relation to pregnancy and abortion. Noonan focuses her analysis on Robin West's article "Jurisprudence and Gender." She argues that West's work dangerously portrays certain facets of feminist legal theory. She contends that West's portrayal of radical feminism functions to establish abortion as women's inability to adjust to the consequences of connection. This paper specifically addresses the separation thesis, connection, abortion, including gender essentialism and motherhood.
