Abortion: A Case Study in Law and Morals

Synopsis

"[Frohock's] technique is to set forth the theoretical arguments for and against abortion by displaying them through the words of those who actively participate in the abortion controversy. He also presents the contemporary data about abortions (who gets them, how many are performed each year, where are they performed) and what important legal precedents both led to and can be extrapolated from the Supreme Court's 1973 decision to legalize abortion in Roe v. Wade.... The writing is extremely clear and concise; both the chapters and extensive bibliography are divided by topics, such as the ethical issues behind abortion, abortion statistics, and the relationship between morality and abortion law. Excellent reference work for both a philosophical and an empirical inquiry into abortion. This book stands out as one of few to be accessible to both general readers and undergraduates alike." - Choice
