Jacqueline Christine Harvey is a scholar of public policy and bioethics, an adjunct professor at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and an associate scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute. In addition to articles opposing abortion, Harvey has written extensively in opposition to so-called assisted suicide, which is also known as “death with dignity.”

She received her BS, in social work at University of North Texas in 2003, her MS in social work from University of Texas at Arlington in 2005, and her PhD in philosophy, public administration, and management from University of North Texas in 2012.

Harvey claims that abortion may be more accessible than other elective outpatient surgeries. Not only did Harvey invent her theory, but research by the Guttmacher Institute shows that in 2011, 89 percent of U.S. counties (representing 38 percent of the U.S. female population) had no abortion clinics.

Harvey has a documented history of fabrication, equivocation, and apparent lack of understanding of basic statistical concepts, but nevertheless provided written testimony to the Texas legislature in support of HB 2.
