From the Publisher:
This controversial call-to-arms to the pro-choice movement-now with a new epilogue-is more important then ever in the wake of the 2004 election
Thirty years after Roe v. Wade, the world has changed, but the pro-choice argument hasn't. Stuck with an argument that doesn't address moral concerns, the movement has lost many political battles and seems in danger of losing the hearts and minds of a new generation. In Beyond Choice, International Planned Parenthood Council Chair Alexander Sanger issues the pro-choice movement a stern rallying cry-and offers en route a provocative and unprecedented case for the moral rightness of choice. Recasting abortion as a positive good, Sanger argues persuasively that abortion in fact favors the cause of life, propagates health, and best serves the biological demands of the species.
Beyond Choice offers a dynamic new perspective on the abortion debate. As social conservatives emboldened by Bush's re-election gain ground, Beyond Choice is a vital reference and resource-not only for members of the pro-choice movement, but for human rights activists, opinion leaders, medical ethicists, and anyone concerned to preserve our freedom to reproduce, or not, without government intervention.
