By: Rita J. Simon
Abortion is one of the most compelling public policy issues facing government and the public in the United States today. Simon examines how this issue is being faced in other countries around the world. After providing a brief historical introduction, she examines the legal statutes pertaining to abortion in key selected countries: reports on public attitudes toward abortion based on responses to national public opinion polls: and discusses the relationships between the laws and statutes pertaining to abortion and the nations' policies vis-a-vis population growth and control.
