Please read Davis v. Davis before beginning this assignment. Then, please discuss the following:
How are the embryos in question treated with respect to status as property or persons? What do you think about the status of the embryos? How does the status of the embryos in this case compare with the status of the fetus in Roe v. Wade?
What arguments did Junior Davis present to support his having custody of the embryos? Did you find his arguments to be compelling?
What arguments did Mary Sue Stowe present to support her assertion that Junior should not have the embryos and that they should be donated to a childless couple? Did you find her arguments persuasive?
How did court ultimately decide? What reasons did they provide for their decision?
