Ryan Anderson, Assistant Editor of First Things, pens a helpful review of Defending Life: A Moral and Legal Case Against Abortion Choice by Frank Beckwith in the October 8th edition of National Review. The publisher’s description:
Defending Life is the most comprehensive defense of the prolife position on abortion ever published. It is sophisticated, but still accessible to the ordinary citizen. Without high-pitched rhetoric or appeals to religion, the author offers a careful and respectful case for why the prolife view of human life is correct. He responds to the strongest prochoice arguments found in law, science, philosophy, politics, and the media. He explains and critiques Roe v. Wade, and he explains why virtually all the popular prochoice arguments fail. There is simply nothing like this book.
