An issue of discrimination : a new look at the abortion controversy : [an honors thesis (HONRS 499)]
The abortion controversy has generated immense criticism. Instead of reviewing the arguments pro and con, this creative project produces an original argument for resolving the conflict.This paper presupposes that the reader is fully versed in the standard literature on abortion in recent philosophy journals. See the bibliography for the necessary background. In addition, it is assumed that the reader is acquainted with basic ethical theory, in particular rule utilitarianism. If needed, see Ch. 2-5 of Ethics, Theory & Practice, Ed. by M. Ch. 3).
