Book talk: Before Roe v. Wade

December 13, 2010

Pulitzer-Prize winning Greenhouse (Becoming Justice Blackmun) who has covered the Supreme Court for nearly 30 years; together with Yale Law professor Siegel (Processes of Constitutional Decision Making) discuss their new book, "Before Roe v. Wade: the voices that shaped the abortion debate before the Supreme Court's ruling." Bringing to light key voices that illuminate the case and its cultural context, the authors look back and recapture how the arguments for and against abortion took shape as claims about the meaning of the Constitution—and about how the nation could best honor its commitment to dignity, liberty, equality, and life.   The book is available at the Law Library  and you may watch the video online in our catalog.
