.- A new book promises to address the important question posed by the pro-life movement’s support for restrictive or “incremental” abortion legislation. Colin Harte’s book, entitled “Changing Unjust Laws Justly: Pro-Life Solidarity with ‘the Last and Least’”, could have “profound implications” for the pro-life movement and the way in which it functions, stated a press release.

The main question the book attempts to answer is: What types of legal changes the pro-life movement support if it is not possible to overturn the abortion law altogether?

In the 1980s, the author was a committed campaigner within the pro-life movement for legislation to restrict abortion. Harte now argues that there is a fundamental moral problem in supporting laws that grant protection to some unborn children while denying it to others.

The Catholic University of America Press will release the book June 29. For information, go to: http://cuapress.cua.edu/BOOKS/viewbook.cfm?Book=HACU
