David Boonin’s new book Beyond Roe: Why Abortion Should Be Legal Even if the Fetus Is a Person hits the shelves as the world ramps up the political wars over abortion. The Supreme Court’s ideological make-up may have shifted for the first time in decades as a result of President Trump’s appointments of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. Abortion rights supporters fear that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision responsible for protecting the right to an abortion in all fifty states, may be in jeopardy. New York, Illinois, and other state legislatures rushed to amend their laws to protect abortion in the event Roe falls. States such as Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama sought to push the boundaries of the current climate to test if they can restrict access to abortion. Celebrities, business leaders, and cultural influencers threaten boycotts while the Senate calls in social media executives to answer charges of discriminating against pro-lifers. This book and its arguments couldn’t be more timely or relevant, given the current climate.
