Constitutional Theory and Public Policy James R. Bowers. 1. Reconciling. the.
Irreconcilable. Fifty-four percent of all women who become pregnant each year in
the United States neither intend nor want these pregnancies to occur. Forty-
seven percent of these women, or about 1.6 million women, will choose to
resolve their unintended or unwanted pregnancies through abortion (Gold 1990,
11). The reasons why they will choose abortion over birth will vary. Many of these
women will ...

because the increase in abortion of unwanted pregnancies in the 1970s
selectively reduced the population of young people with criminal propensity in
the 1990s (Donohue and Leavitt 2001). Of course one chapter cannot review all
of these topics. This chapter reviews four areas of research into biological
influences on criminal propensity: biomarkers, genetics, psychophysiology, and
neuroimaging. In addition, the chapter briefly describes how developmental
neuroscience is ...

When very restrictive policies are relaxed, like those associated with abortion
legalization, the main effect is a reduction in unwanted births brought about by an
increase in the frequency of abortion. Pregnancies may increase as well, but this
may be secondary in nature. On the other hand, when these policies are relaxed
further, like making abortion available upon request with few restrictions, these
models predict that abortions will increase more, but births are unlikely to fall
further in ...

The Court ruled that the Fifth Criminal Law Reform Act which had been adopted
in 1974 was void insofar as it provided for the termination of pregnancy during
the first twelve weeks without requiring any particular reason for it. The
Commission of Human Rights interpreted the language of Article 8 as meaning '
that not every regulation of the termination of unwanted pregnancy constitutes an
interference with the right to respect for the private life of the mother, in that Article
8, paragraph ...

It has been an important, but unpleasant, chapter in the history of American
public policy. A fuller discussion of this topic, of course, would include
consideration of policy options that reduce the extent of unwanted pregnancies
and policy options that soften the blow for those electing not to terminate their
pregnancies, but such a consideration serves only to expand controversial issues
. Policy options that would enlarge income support programs for those unable to
work and care for ...

The passage of the Family Planning Services and Popu-lation Research Act of
1970 (Public Law 91—572), by overwhelming majorities of both houses of
Congress, attests to the new situation and suggests its potential: for the first time,
public policy can become a positive force to help Americans avoid unwanted
pregnancy. This occurs at a time when the technology of fertility control makes it
possible to at least envision the virtual elimination of unwanted pregnancy as a
realistic ...

Traditional moral views - partly buttressed by religion, partly independent of it -
continue to exist and to shape public opinion. In particular, the data show that
sexual restrictiveness is an important source of opposition to legalised abortion.
We have argued that this represents an attempt at social control through the
threat of unwanted pregnancy to discourage sexual indulgence. In addition,
opposition to women working is a minor source of opposition to legalised
abortion. We have ...

Because pluralistic moral views derive from our cultural pluralism, especially
religious pluralism, our society has to develop a public policy that will allow us to
disagree—even on the bitterly contested question of ending unwanted
pregnancy. . . . It is a policy which neither encourages nor discourages abortion. It
would protect the right of those morally opposed to abortion by offering adequate
maternal and child-welfare services. It would protect the right of physicians,
nurses, and ...
