Kaczor offers reasonable critiques of many of the arguments brought up in Boonin's A Defense of Abortion, as well as offering a reasonable case for the pro-life position.

Christopher Kaczor, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University and the author of The Ethics of Abortion: Women's Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice; Thomas Aquinas on the Cardinal Virtues; Life Issues - Medical Choices; and How to Stay Catholic in College.More about Christopher Kaczor...
