Summary
Finding that her students readily defend various positions on the abortion controversy, but rarely know what the actual status of abortion policy is, Rose (political science, Portland State U., Oregon) sets out the current policy--arguing that abortion is neither illegal nor available on demand--then places the partisan maneuverings of abortion debate within that context. Each chapter contains discussion questions and suggested readings
