Book Recommendation: The Ethics of Abortion by Christopher Kaczor

The Ethics of Abortion: Women’s Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice by Christopher Kaczor presents a thorough pro-life argument. He starts by consecutively arguing against the pro-choice beliefs that personhood begins after birth, that personhood begins at birth, and that personhood begins some time during the development of the fetus. He reaches the conclusion that personhood begins at conception and addresses arguments against his position. Dozens of arguments put forth in the abortion debate (from both sides) are analyzed throughout the book. The arguments presented are secular and based on common moral intuitions. 5/5 stars.
