Life in the Balance: Exploring the Abortion Controversy

Portada
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1985 - 184 pàgines
In this book, Robert N. Wennberg looks at all the major arguments from the whole spectrum of positions on the abortion issue. He does so both earnestly and fairly, taking care to point out that most of the arguments follow soundly from their premises, and that most of the parties to the debate are altruistically motivated. Cutting through the sensationally prejudicial language often used in arguments about abortion, Wennberg clearly lays out what merit the various arguments have individually so readers can compare them sensibly. Writing out of the evangelical Protestant tradition, Wennberg nevertheless looks fairly and with an open mind at all of the arguments. The book will be valuable to anyone who wants a noncrusading presentation of this crucial issue.
