Abstract

This book, like many other things to do with abortion, is a product of long controversy. Though carried out with cooperation, it was conceived in conflict. The conflict between the coeditors has per sisted for years-in fact, for at least half of their thirty-year marriage. One, Sidney, is prolife; the other, Daniel, is prochoice. Ever since the topic of abortion became of professional interest to us, in the 1960s, we have disagreed. At one time, while Daniel was writing a book on the subject, Abortion: Law, Choice and Morality (1970), we talked about the subject every day for the four years of the book's gestation. On many occasions during the 1970s, prolife articles writ ten by Sidney were passed out at Daniel's lectures in order to refute his pro choice views. Over the years, every argument, every statistic, every historical example cited in the literature has been discussed by the two of us. As Eliza Doolittle says about "words" in My Fair Lady, "There's nota one I haven't heard. " And yet we still disagree. How can it be, we ask ourselves, that intelligent people of goodwill who know all the same facts and all the same arguments still come down on different sides of the con troversy? As we well know, it is possible to agree about many things and have great love and respect for an opponent, and still differ.

Abstract

Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice is a gift to all who want to expand their understanding of the religious, moral, and philosophical aspects of the abortion debate. Ethicist Kathy Rudy examines four systems of belief - Catholicism, evangelical Protestantism, feminism, and classical liberalism as expressed in the medical profession - and reveals the role abortion plays in each. She shows why, in each case, ideas, about abortion are unlikely to change - because they emerge from each community's deeply held values and concerns, which vary from community to community. She demonstrates that constructing the abortion debate as a choice between "pro-life" and "pro-choice" has distorted and misrepresented the ways that many people relate to the issue of abortion, and has obscured the diversity of belief both among and within communities and individuals. Finally, she offers a provocative alternative that would allow every community involved to more freely develop and express its views about the morality of abortion.

Abstract

The psychological significance of abortion is often ignored in a debate which excites strong emotions. Rather than polarising her views for or against abortion, Eva Pattis Zoja presents its significance in terms of a woman's inner life.This text examines the thoughts that surround a woman's decision to end a pregnancy, and presents the thesis that voluntary abortion can often be a violent and unconscious act of self-realization. The author makes no attempt to argue for or against, or to deny the painful nature of the subject which she tackles, but instead looks at the way in which a decision to abort can affect a woman's inner life.

Abstract

A l'aide de diverses situations cliniques, l'auteur montre comment les soignants de médecine fœtale sont soumis à de nombreuses tensions : la souffrance des parents confrontés à la découverte d'une pathologie chez leur futur enfant, la pression médiatique, l'impact des procédures judiciaires, l'évolution des représentations sociales du handicap, la revendication plus ou moins explicite du droit à l'enfant parfait, etc. Les soignants vivent cela dans l'exaltation du développement extraordinaire des possibilités d'investigation de l'état du fœtus, et donc des capacités diagnostiques qui en découlent. Mais cet enthousiasme est grevé par la profonde frustration de ne pouvoir disposer toujours de traitements fœtaux adaptés à ces pathologies nouvellement découvertes. Dans un tel contexte, leurs ressentis, leurs questionnements sont multiples et intenses. Si les soignants déploient toute leur énergie et leur compétence envers leur petit patient et sa famille, le trouble les envahit parfois à l'idée du risque de dérives qui les guettent, dérive dans leur fonction soignante, dérive dans leur rapport à l'enfant " différent ", dérive dans le mandat qui leur est assigné. Pour affronter ces difficultés, ils tentent de mettre en place certains dispositifs professionnels, institutionnels, mais aussi personnels, qui aident à soutenir leur créativité soignante. Cet ouvrage s'adresse à tous les soignants impliqués dans cette problématique de la médecine fœtale, quelles que soient leur place et les limites de leurs fonctions.

Abstract

In Abortion and the Ways We Value Human Life, Jeffrey Reiman argues that an overlooked clue to the solution of the moral problem of abortion lies in the unusual way in which we value the lives of individual human beings-namely, that we value them irreplaceably. We think it is not only wrong to kill an innocent child or adult, but that it would not be made right by replacing the dead one with another living one, or even several. Reiman argues that there are only a limited number of facts that could justify such valuing, with the result that human children and adults have the fullest right to protection of their lives, infants have a lesser but substantial right to such protection, and fetuses do not qualify at all. Leading up to this argument, Reiman presents a survey of Western attitudes and laws about abortion from Hammurabi's Code to Roe v. Wade, and a critical analysis of all the major philosophical arguments on the issue, pro and con. The book is written in straightforward, jargon-free language that makes it accessible to college students at all levels and to the educated lay reader as well.
