Beckwith, Francis J.

Pricing details

Defending Life is the most comprehensive defense of the pro-life 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 pro-life view of human life is correct. He responds to the strongest pro-choice 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.
