Front Cover
Greenwood Press, Jun 1, 1991 - Political Science - 251 pages
This book represents the first compilation for pro-choice and pro-life issues into one annotated publication. Richard Fitzsimmons and Joan P. Diana provide an objective, comprehensive listing of all periodical and monographic publications on pro-choice and pro-life issues between 1972 and 1989. The items listed are widely accessible in public, academic, and school libraries, and offer students, teachers, lawyers, theologians, researchers, and the layperson the tools to reach an informed opinion on the subject. Fitzsimmons and Diana list all materials fitting parameters of reserach in the ethical, legal, moral, religious, and social arenas. Items reflecting the positions of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Pro-Choice and Pro-Life movements, and the Respect for Life/Right to Life movement are included. It is a "selected" bibliography in that it excludes articles dealing with methods of contraception and abortion, clinic bombings, euthanasia, and exclusively medical issues in favor of items dealing directly with the pro-choice/pro-life debate. Presented in standard Modern Language Association (MLA) bibliographical format, this book is a useful reference tool for students. scholars, and professionals of psychology, sociology, population studies, religion, law, and civil liberties.
