In November 1989 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child, heralding the arrival of a new era in the development of children's rights. Using the Convention as a framework, this volume re-evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of approaching issues of children's welfare and well-being through the lens of a "rights" approach. The authors take a fresh look at these issues, with specific reference to an international treaty that is certain to be ratified by a very large number of countries in every region of the world and which will soon be legally binding in many states. The contributors are Tom Campbell, Onora O'Neill, Michael Freeman, Ngaire Naffine, Margaret Coady, Tony Coady, Sheila McLean, Frances Olsen, and John Eekelaar.

`This book addresses important issues of health care, law and the responsibility of pregnant woment and those who care for her towards the unborn. The first part will be of particular interest to health care and legal practitioners, students and others seeking to find out about legal
obligations. As the account starts from basic principles and explains the law clearly and comprehensibly, it is accessible to those without legal knowledge. Drawing upon feminist theory, the second part provides a refreshing and thought-provoking analysis of the intervention of law at the
beginning of life.'
