Each title in the Opposing Viewpoints series explores a specific issue by placing expert opinions in a unique pro/con format. By exposing readers to a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources - including both popular and unpopular views - the series promotes awareness and critical thinking about the issues that shape our turbulent and changing world.
This volume explores both sides of the debate on the moral and social issues surrounding abortion. Is it immoral? Does it violate human rights? Can it be a form of genocide? Restrictions on abortion rights, such as parental consent laws and banning late-term abortions, are also discussed, as well as the impact of abortion on society and on women's physical and emotional health.
"Opposing Viewpoints series examines controversial issues by examining diverse viewpoints. This series contains many current topics in the news. This year's entries include books about obesity, energy alternatives, ethics, and tobacco and smoking."
