"An important work on a monumental subject." ―Anna Quindlen, New York Times Book Review

On profound questions of birth, death, and human choice that are raised by abortion―where opposing sides see no common ground―how can the conflict be managed? The abortion debate in the United States today involves all Americans in complex questions of sex and power, historical change, politics, advances in medicine, and competing social values. In this best-selling book, an eminent constitutional authority shows how the nation has struggled with these questions and then sets forth new approaches that reflect both sides' passionately held convictions. The paperback edition includes discussion of the latest court decisions and excerpts from the major cases, including the Supreme Court's landmark June 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

About the Author:

Laurence H. Tribe is Tyler Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard Law School. He frequently appears on network television and National Public Radio.

From Library Journal:

In his study of the Supreme Court, God Save This Honorable Court ( LJ 2/1/86), Tribe provided new ways to think about the law. In this book, he does the same with the abortion issue. He argues that philosophical and legal analyses are the only means to reach an accommodation of two opposing views of pro-life and pro-choice. Tribe extensively examines political and social implications of major court and legislative decisions from Roe v. Wade to the present. He compares U.S. abortion policies with those of other nations, and he tries to answer some controversial questions on the rights of pregnant women and the fetus. Tribe sometimes gets too legalistic, but most readers will find his book understandable and thought-provoking. It should become a standard work on abortion issues. Highly recommended.
