Emory Law to Host Panel on Suleman Octuplets

Emory Law's Global Health Law & Policy Project and Emory University’s Race and Difference Initiative will examine the case of the Suleman octuplets during a panel discussion from 3-5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 19, in Gambrell Hall, Room G575.

The case raises a variety of issues ranging from bioethics to professionalism to public relations issues. Kathy Kinlaw, associate director for Emory’s Center for Ethics, and Donna Session, medical director for Emory’s Assisted Reproduction Program, will share their perspectives and take questions. Chad Slieper 05L, program director for the Global Health Law and Policy Project, is the moderator.

Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m. with the panel beginning at 3:30 p.m.

The panel is part of the "Motherhood at the Intersection of Race and Class" series, sponsored by the Race and Difference Initiative at Emory University. It accompanies two exhibits, “Interrupted Life: Incarcerated Mothers in the U.S.” and “Beggars and Choosers: Motherhood is Not a Class Privilege in America,” by award-winning historian Rickie Sollinger at the Schatten Gallery through March 12.
