“The US Supreme Court Will Soon Decide Whether There is Life After Death” is the intriguing title of an article published on Wednesday, January 11 in the Los Angeles Daily Journal by Judith Daar, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. She explains the legal issues before the U.S. Supreme Court this term as it decides if posthumously conceived children are eligible to receive Social Security insurance benefits as dependents of their predeceased genetic parents. Associate Dean Daar believes this issue presents an opportunity for broader reflection on the legal status of children born via assisted reproductive technologies (ART), which represent nearly three of every 100 births in the U.S. today.
