Full Description


As the topic of abortion continues to figure prominently in the public consciousness of many countries, "The Abortion Debate in the World Arena addresses the development of abortion issues on a global level. Using extensive interviews, including discussions with heads of state and church, and original research in Kenya, Mexico and Poland, Andrezej Kulcycki examines how cultural history, women's movements, the Catholic Church and international influences have shaped abortion policies in those nations. Recognizing that many abortion issues are moving beyond Western liberal democracies, this book shows how and why the dynamics of the abortion debate have significantly shifted toward developing nations and to post-communist societies of East Central Europe.
