Abortion Under State Constitutions from the Author: Paul Benjamin Linton. Whether a state constitution protects a right to abortion is significant for two reasons: First, it may determine whether the State has the authority to enact and enforce laws regulating abortion (e.g., laws mandating informed consent or requiring parental notice or consent) within current federal constitutional limits. Second, and more important, it will determine whether the State would have the authority to enact and enforce laws prohibiting abortion, if the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade and returns the issue of abortion to the States. Abortion under State Constitutions is the first, full-length treatment of the subject to appear in print. For each State, the author considers possible sources of a right to abortion in the state constitution (privacy, due process of law, equality of rights, equal protection, privileges and immunities, as well as other provisions); state court decisions interpreting those provisions; the relevant state constitutional history; pre-Roe prohibitions of abortion and their interpretation by state courts; post-Roe regulations of abortion; and what rights state law has conferred upon unborn children outside the context of abortion. Based upon the foregoing analysis, arranged topically within each State for ease of reference, the author concludes that thirteen state constitutions protect (or would be interpreted to protect) a state right to abortion that is independent of the right to abortion recognized in Roe v. Wade, while the supreme courts of the other thirty-seven States probably would not recognize a state right to abortion. Likely to become a standard reference work on the subject, Abortion under State Constitutions should be of interest not only to lawyers who litigate state abortion rights claims and judges who decide those cases, but to anyone on either side of the abortion debate who wants to have a better understanding of the status of abortion under state constitutions.

Hardness Of Heart Hardness Of Life from the Author: Larry Stephen Milner. Infanticide is one of the most common, yet least understood of all human crimes. Although academic articles document isolated aspects of this problem, a single, unified analysis of infanticide has not been completed until now. In Hardness of Heart/Hardness of Life, Larry Milner provides the first exhaustive survey of infanticide, drawing on historical data from around the world. He then uses this survey as a basis for investigating why infanticide has been present in every form of human society throughout history. Both comprehensive and compelling, this important study will intrigue students of human psychology, social welfare, and child abuse, and will promote further research on this alarmingly overlooked atrocity.

The Politically Incorrect Guide To Women Sex And Feminism from the Author: Carrie L. Lukas. We’ve been duped. We were raised to think we could have it all. In college we were told that men weren’t necessary. Pop culture told us that career—not family—came first. The idea of being a stay-at-home mom was for losers. And yet are we happier than our mothers or grandmothers, who grew up before women were "liberated" by the sexual revolution? For many women, the answer is no. In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Women, Sex, and Feminism, Carrie Lukas, a young career woman and new mother, sets the record straight: correcting the lies women have been told and slamming the door on the screaming harpies of NOW, feminist professors, and the rest of the bra-burners who have done so much to wreck women’s lives. Bet your feminist teacher never told you: * Women’s lib has "liberated" men from having to commit, "freed" women from marriage, and often "unshackled" women from having a family. * More than ever, women in their twenties and thirties live alone, are discarded by boyfriends after "living together," and are watching their biological clocks tick past the point of no return. * Women still prefer men who are breadwinners and can protect them physically.

Law And Bioethics from the Author: Jerry Menikoff. This text on the field of bioethics and the law is designed for readers with little or no legal background. Detailing how the legal analysis of an issue in bioethics often differs from the "ethical" analysis, it covers such topics as abortion, surrogacy, cloning, informed consent, malpractice, refusal of care and organ transplantation. Structured like a legal casebook, it includes the text of almost all the landmark cases that have shaped bioethics. It offers commentary on each of these cases, as well as an introduction to the US legal system, explaining federalism and underlying common law concepts. Students and professionals in medicine and public health, as well as specialists in bioethics, should find this book a useful resource.
