If you are opposed to abortion, are you ethically justified in preventing a woman from getting an abortion?
Why don't anti-abortion politicians devote more energy to helping needy children whose mothers chose not to have abortions?
Questions of this sort have generated more emotion than reason for decades. Using medical, legal, and public opinion data the authors examine the complex dilemmas raised by the abortion issue. Gary Crum and Thelma McCormack each take a strong stand and give a vigorous rendering of the pro-life and pro-choice positions based on solid data. This careful examination of the moral, political, social and medical aspects of abortion is a vital addition to the literature.
