ABORTION: ETHICS, CONSCIENCE AND CHOICE

BPAS's journal 'Abortion Review' has published edited papers from the landmark BPAS 'Future of Abortion' conference in June 2008.  This conference was opened by a UK government minister and made news headlines around the world, as key players from the international sexual and reproductive health scene presented their views on the latest issues and future directions of abortion and contraceptive care.

Contributions to this first edited collection of papers go to the heart of the ethical and moral debates about abortion. Edited papers from other areas of the conference will be published on the Abortion Review website soon. Expert presentations include:

- THE PROBLEM WITH PAIN: WHAT THE FETUS FEELS. By Stuart Derbyshire

- THE VALUE OF LIFE: WHEN DOES IT BEGIN, WHEN DOES IT MATTER? By John Harris

- PRESENTING THE CASE FOR CONSCIENCE. By Jon O’Brien

- PRESENTING THE CASE FOR CHOICE. By Kirsten Moore
