Personal Identity - Pregnancy

Plug Note




In-Page Footnotes

Footnote 11:
  • The item that my algorithms drew my attention to is the possibility of “post-mortem pregnancy”.
  • This anomalous notion is motivated by the adoption of “brain death” as the legal or clinical definition of death, where the mother is deemed dead but is evidently sufficiently biologically alive to carry the fetus as far as viability.
Footnote 12:
  • Doubtless of very dubious relevance, but you never know.
