"Yitzhak Rabin once said, 'You don't make peace with your friends, you make peace with your enemies.' Lloyd Steffen has taken a huge step in the direction of peace among enemies in this reader on abortion. He brings together the responsible views from all sides of this critical controversy. We have a long way to go to peace, but peace begins with listening."
-- Susan Thistlethwaite, Professor of Theology, Chicago Theological Seminary
"Lloyd Steffen has assembled a superb reader on abortion. It includes the most important religious and ethical discussions of this complex and divisive subject, and many different audiences should find it quite valuable. I look forward to an opportunity to use it in my own teaching."
-- James F. Childress, Kyle Professor of Religious Studies and Professor of Medical Education, University of Virginia
