For approximately three decades, the abortion debate has polarized America. Views range from the extreme conservative position that all abortions are morally objectionable to the extreme liberal position that abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy is acceptable. In the middle are those who advocate laws limiting the number of valid reasons for abortion. This comprehensive volume includes bibliographic citations that address the moral and religious aspects of abortion. It covers such topics as the various arguments both for and against abortion, the status of the fetus, and overviews of several religions' stances on abortion. Citations also include references on how Christianity has influenced abortion politics and law, discussions of Operation Rescue, and official statements on abortion by the Catholic Church and several Protestant denominations. Researchers, as well as anyone interested in the moral and religious elements of abortion, will find this resource invaluable. It covers the literature on abortion and religion found in books, essays, journal articles, academic dissertations and Web sites. And, unlike many of the available bibliographies, this one focuses only on the religious and moral issues, therefore providing greater depth on those two issues within one work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Johnston begins by claiming this is not just another bibliography on the subject of abortion. What makes his different? It is narrow in scope, addressing only the religious and moral perspectives without attempting to cover legal, sociological, political, and medical aspects. It contains more entries and has greater depth, is ambitiously comprehensive and includes many important publications, and has citations from all points of view....Highly recommended. Undergraduate and graduate students."-Choice
