This book presents a new argument attacking the view that if the foetus has the moral standing of a person it has a right to life and abortion is impermissible. Most discussion of abortion has assumed that this premise is correct, and so has focused on the question of the personhood of the foetus. Frances Kamm, however, argues that abortion can be moral even if the foetus is indeed a person.

Review quote

Kamm is probably the most sophisticated deontologist writing on normative issues today ... Kamm's discussion is a major contribution to the literature. * Shelly Kagan, University of Illinois *
