Roe v. Wade by Laurie Collier Hillstrom( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Throughout the course of America's existence, its people, culture, and institutions have been periodically challenged-and in many cases transformed-by profound historical events. Some of these momentous events invigorated the nation and strengthened American confidence and capabilities. Others have prompted troubled assessments and heated debates about the country's core beliefs and character. But all share the same basic attribute: they transformed the United States' political, cultural, and social landscape for future generations of Americans. Omnigraphics' Defining Moments series was created for the express purpose of meeting the American people's growing appetite for authoritative, useful historical resources on their nation's history. This series, which focuses on the most pivotal events in U.S. history from the 20th century forward, will be of enduring value to anyone interested in learning more about America's past-and in understanding how these historical events continue to reverberate in the 21st century. This Defining Moments: Roe v. Wade volume is-like all other works in the Defining Moments series-arranged in three distinct sections: Narrative Overview-provides a detailed, factual account of the Roe v. Wade case and decision. It explores the history of abortion in America, describes the early movements to reform anti-abortion laws, follows the Roe v. Wade case from its origins in Texas to its two hearings before the U.S. Supreme Court, explains the landmark 1973 decision and its implications, traces the rising power and influence of the pro-life movement, and examines the continuing debate over abortion rights and its impact on American society and politics. Biographies-provides valuable biographical background on leading figures involved in the Roe v. Wade case and in the debate over abortion rights. Individuals profiled include Harry A. Blackmun, the Supreme Court justice who wrote the majority opinion; Norma McCorvey, the pregnant woman who served as the plaintiff in the case under the false name Jane Roe; Henry Wade, the Dallas district attorney who served as the defendant; and Sarah Weddington, the attorney who successfully argued the case before the Supreme Court. Primary Sources-collects essential and illuminating documents from the Roe v. Wade case and the larger battle over abortion rights. This collection includes the National Organization for Women's 1967 call for the repeal of abortion laws; excerpts from the Supreme Court's majority opinion and dissenting opinions; Robert H. Bork's defense of the pro-life position; and the 2004 Democratic and Republican party platforms on abortion. Other valuable features in Defining Moments: Roe v. Wade include a glossary of important people, places, and terms; a chronology of events; a complete bibliography and annotated list of sources for future study; and a subject index
