When The Ethics of Abortion first appeared, this powerful collection of essays gained instant recognition as one of the first attempts to present both sides of the abortion debate in the words of leading proponents. Now, after two major Supreme Court cases, intense political wrangling, and heavy media coverage of often violent public demonstrations, the editors have updated and revised this groundbreaking book by adding thirteen new selections and retaining many popular selections from the previous edition. Comprehensive and balanced, this popular volume in Prometheus's "Contemporary Issues" series offers nineteen essays and three excerpts from the high court's opinions in Roe v. Wade, which changed the face of abortion law for all time; Webster v. Reproductive Health Services (1989), which regulated the use of public facilities for abortions; and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey (1992), which imposed a waiting period and permitted parental notification. This provocative anthology covers such compelling issues as the pre-Roe abortion period in American history, abortion and the Constitution, abortion and feminism, abortion and Christianity, as well as the fundamental moral issues.
