    One thought on “Defending Life: A Moral and Legal Case against Abortion Choice”

    1. We live in an age of paradox. On the one hand, scientific concepts are confidently and systematically understood, and our control of the physical world continues to expand through our employ of thorough, rigorous scientific method. On the other hand, the poverty of moral discourse is such that, in the words of J. Budziszewski, "it iske a great smoke which fills our houses and dulls our minds and makes it difficult to complete any thoughts." Trying to discuss moral issues such as abortion in my e [...]

    2. Once again a book with no merit from a biased, hypocritical anti-life activist. (Pro-Life is Pro-Choice) They ignore all scientific facts, medical facts; they ignore the impact unwanted pregnancies have on the fetus aka the possible child and often the one forced to carry it to term as well. They refuse to look at quality of life and they refuse to speak the truth anywhere in this or any other book like it, for they've nothing to base their argument on but OPINION Even those opinions are lies as [...]

    3. Defending Life is both detailed and readable, a work which brings the most updated and honest presentation of both sides to light. With elegance and philosophical skill Beckwith builds a case for full-fledged rights bearing, intrinsically valuable nature of the pre-natal life. By the end of the book it is impossible to see the fetus as anything but fully human, and it's death as anything but moral inhumane and impermissible. The culture of American reproductive discussion needs to hear this trea [...]

    4. This book summarizes all the most and best arguments against abortion choice. It can be a good book to bring to an abortion/ESCR/cloning debate since the section headings are a good guide. Although, the headings could have been outlined in the table of contents for quick reference.This book does outline the non-religious grounds against abortion choice, but I still feel that the argument ultimately depends on the axiom that all humans (where a human if and only if a person) have inherent worth. [...]

    5. A comprehensive guide in defense of the pro-life position on philosopical and ethical grounds. Beckwith debunks common arguments for abortion, showing the self-contradiction of moral relevance; exposing the folly of popular emotional appeals; and challenging ethicists proposing that not all human life is equal. Beckwith grounds his defense in the belief that the unborn is a person fully deserving of rights at conception; therefore, murder of such a person is prima facie first degree murder and l [...]

    6. I gave this book four stars because it is one of the most comprehensive defenses of the conservative pro-life stance out there. But, Beckwith's arguments for the full moral standing of the fetus depends on his "substantive" view of the metaphysics of the person. That view is open to criticism, and thus how well he defends the conclusion that the fetus has full moral standing from conception is, I think, not all that strong. Nevertheless, it is worth a read by anyone interested in what is without [...]

    7. Definitely helped strengthen my views on abortion by explaining very deep topics. The author does not use anything about religion to argue his case,he instead uses views about morality to put emphasis on things, he also persuades readers in a very effective way by speaking his mind without having the common offensive vibe that other authors tend to have when writing about strong views.

    8. Dry, condescending smirking tone, too tied up in the legal details, some distracting typosI'm having trouble getting through this one right now. I guess I don't see how his arguments will convince anyone who doesn't already agree with him.
