Everyone has an opinion on abortion, usually a very strongly held one. Sometimes it appears we keep having the same conversations and the same arguments about it without getting anywhere. The hope of this book is that people will take a fresh look at this contentious topic, taking in the science and philosophy on which abortion arguments are based.
In this excellent book, Dr Zimmermann carefully lays out for the reader an easily digestible and highly readable account of the Christian roots of the common law in England… His book is a very valuable addition to Australian works on legal history and will assist not only lawyers and law students but all interested readers to better understand why our legal system is as it is.
