Description

In the early 1970s the call for abortion on demand was asserted with confidence - but in recen tyears the climate has changed. As the anti-abortion lobby has grown more aggressive and confident, those campaigning for abortion rights have become increasingly defensive, producing often incoherent arguments. "Abortion Rights" aims to demystify a subject that many find difficult to understand. It details the philosophical and political assumptions of the anti-abortion lobby, and confronts the key questions about the beginning of life and foetal rights at the centre of investigations into embryo experimentation. The author also explores what abortion rights mean to the women's movement and why the issue is regarded as crucial in the fight for equality.show more
