Abortion in the twenty-first century: moral, legal and cultural dimensions


G06 Sir Ambrose Fleming LT | Roberts Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

UCL Centre for Ethics and Law sponsored discussion event to mark the publication of:

About Abortion: Terminating Pregnancy in Twenty-First Century America (HUP) by Professor Carol Sanger (Columbia Law School)


Arguments about Abortion: Personhood, Morality and Law (Oxford University Press) by Dr Kate Greasley (UCL Laws)

This book launch will begin with brief comments by both authors about the central ideas of their respective books. About Abortion (HUP by Carol Sanger) confronts the question of why so much of United States politics and society is concerned with the abortion issue. Arguments about Abortion (OUP by Kate Greasley) centres on the moral and legal permissibility of terminating pregnancy, and the relevance of arguments about foetal personhood for that question.

There will be time allocated for questions and discussion after the comments followed by a drinks reception.
