Can One Be Two? A Synopsis of the Twinning and Personhood Debate

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    It has been argued that the possibility of monozygotic twinning disproves the conservative position on foetal personhood that defines the foetus as a person from conception. This article will canvass arguments for and against this proposition, in order to arrive at a conclusion as to the relative strength of this finding.
