I strongly disagree with the poster below who found it necessary to post the same review twice, as if repetition adds credence to allegations of circular reasoning. As a student of philosophy, I find no faulty logic here. I have read this book and effectively used its arguments in real life encounters. I have yet to hear a pro-choice supporter even attempt to engage the arguments Schwarz presents here. The usual responses are like the review below, full of name calling and accusations of "faulty logic" without any substance to back up the claim. I recommend both this book and Francis Beckwiths "Politically Correct Death". This book is top-notch.

Dr. Schwarz masterfully takes the reader through a logical approach to understanding the moral question of abortion. He presents his case utilizing the S-L-E-D (Size, Level of development, Environment, and Degree of dependancy) theory of personhood, and strongly argues in favor of recognizing unborn children as "persons" worthy of legal protection. His book addresses many aspects of the abortion issue from philosophy, biology, to social policy. I highly recommend this thoughfully written and important book.

I was pleased that Dr. Schwarz's book challenged the abortion issue without resorting to a religious argument. Though the whole abortion issue is riddled with zealots on both sides, it was heartening to read this book because it avoided the all too familiar rhetoric and heated passions associated with this debate. One can understand why a fetus is more than just "a bunch of cells" and why some women are so distressed for choosing to have an abortion.

Dr. Schwarz has truly created a best of class work. He examines what is so often considered purely an emotional issue with a logical examination that is based entirely on reason. This Harvard-educated philosopher destroys the false stereotype that persons can be against abortion only for religious reasons but instead shows that the only rational position is pro-life.
Every reasonable person concerned with the issue of abortion would do well to understand the argument from this perspective. I would recommend this book highly to everyone, not the least our U.S. Supreme Court justices.
