Description: Virtually no American social movement in modern history has generated more heated debate and violence than the anti-abortion movement. Ever since the 1973 Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, numerous anti-abortion organizations have arisen, engaging in activities ranging from government lobbying for more restrictive laws to violent protests threatening the safety of physicians and patients. Indeed, the recent murders and attempted murders of a number of physicians and clinic workers are indications of the increasing radicalization of the movement. The Anti-Abortion Movement: References and Resources begins with a survey of the movement covering the history of abortion in the United States, the rise of national pro-life organizations, and the changing tactics and future of the movement. Compiler Dallas A. Blanchard then offers insightful annotations on a wide variety of essential resources, including writings on major movement organizations, anti-abortion support and service organizations, political activities and events, movement tactics, membership recruitment and training, the movement and the media, and the religious basis of the movement. Extensively indexed and cross-referenced, this work will be an invaluable reference tool for researchers in the fields of history, religion, sociology, political science, law, and psychology.
