About the Author
David F. Walbert received degrees in physics from Stanford and the University of Michigan before he returned home to law school at Case Western Reserve University. He has also taught Constitutional Law and Constitutional Litigation at the Emory University School of Law, spoken frequently at legal education seminars, and published articles in various legal journals. In addition to more traditional litigation, Mr. Walbert has represented clients in many constitutional cases, including before the U.S. Supreme Court where he has argued several times. His litigation practice has included cases involving medical practice standards and regulatory issues that overlap with the many medical issues that are addressed in Whose Choice Is It? Dr. J. Douglas Butler studied at Case Western Reserve University's joint program with the schools of medicine and law. Upon completion of his studies, he left the United States for several years to practice and further study medicine in other countries. Those experiences took him to Ecuador where he served as a medical missionary and then to Portugal where he studied pediatric orthopedics. While Dr. Butler was not an OB/GYN delivering babies, he became keenly aware of the appalling practices in Latin America regarding reproductive medical care. He practiced medicine in Maryland after returning to the United States from Portugal and was inducted into the American College of Legal Medicine, where he continues to be a member.
