MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is an issue that most people do not wish to discuss...The debate is not much better at an academic level where the issues are often addressed to audiences who have already decided the matter and are looking only for high-calibre ammunition. In the context of this dearth of quality discussion about abortion, Christopher Coope's book is exceptional...This is not an easy book, but it opens up a significant avenue of philosophical reflection on an issue where rational progress has been sadly lacking.' - The Tablet

'Coope's book is, fundamentally, an extended and extremely acute piece of conceptual analysis, aided by an impressive mastery of the philosophical literature.' - Joseph Shaw, The Philosophical Quaterly
