It has been more than thirty years since the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, and the culture war over reproductive freedom shows no signs of resolution or abatement.
The grandson of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, Alexander has served as the organization's president and is now an ambassador for it to the United Nations. Here he argues that fully legal and accessible abortion is better for women, men, and children and is morally right. He provides a framework for analyzing whether some decisions about childbearing and abortion are morally wrong and should be prohibited by law.
