Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice book. Rudy states that abortion means different things to different people because it is understood from the perspectives of a variety of individuals with different realities

Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice book. Rudy states that abortion means different things to different people because it is understood from the perspectives of a variety of individuals with different realities. The realities outlined in Pro/Pro include liberalism, Roman Catholicism, American Catholicism, televangelism, and feminism, which are each explained to have a different moral and ethical belief that affects their opinions concerning abortion.

Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice (abbreviated to Pro/Pro from here on out) has excellent material, but it is.Christianity gradually inserted itself into politics, and the New Christian Right became a voice in the abortion movement.

Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice (abbreviated to Pro/Pro from here on out) has excellent material, but it is exhausting. It is the kind of book you eat like a tootsie pop, one lick at a time, one or two pages per sitting. It’s the kind of book that, unfortunately, you will likely not get through if you do not have some kind of secondary education in your background (which is bullshit). Televangelism became popular, cutting the Bible down into simplified concepts that turned its teachings into unrealistically black and white issues.

I illustrate this with reference to the abortion debate In the preceding chapters of this book, an engaging debate has been conducted that concerns the place of tragedy and the tragic in world politics and its theorization.

I illustrate this with reference to the abortion debate. I also argue that reaching such conclusions about the superiority of one position over rivals need not result in moral arrogance. In the preceding chapters of this book, an engaging debate has been conducted that concerns the place of tragedy and the tragic in world politics and its theorization. The question has been whether tragedy brings specific insight to our understanding of the relation between international politics and ethics. Since much of the discipline of International Relations (IR) hinges on how this relation. is theoretically and empirically conceived, the debate is important.

The terms "pro-life" and "pro-choice" refer to the dominant ideologies concerning abortion rights. The shades of gray in the abortion debate are why the reproductive rights discussion is far from simple. The Pro-Life Perspective. Someone who is "pro-life" believes that the government has an obligation to preserve all human life, regardless of intent, viability, or quality-of-life concerns.

This book has been an arduous journey for me. That’s not to say it hasn’t been a rewarding read, but I am still burned out from the heavy academic texts of my college years.

I love diving into theory and research, but what I have read post-college has been written so as to be easily accessible to readers. Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice (abbreviated to Pro/Pro from here on out) has excellent material, but it is exhausting. It is the kind of book you eat like a tootsie pop, one lick at a time, one or two pages per sitting. It’s the kind of book that, unfortunately, you will likely not get through if you do not have some kind of secondary education in your background (which is bullshit). Therefore, after a short review, I will include a summary of each chapter for those who want a guide as they read the text, or who are curious about what this book has to say.

The Author

Kathy Rudy openly informs her readers that she is a Catholic and a feminist, and these views make themselves well-known as she ties her text together in the last two chapters. A radical social constructionist, Rudy teaches women’s studies at Duke University, bringing philosophy, theology, politics, feminism, and medical ethics together into an interdisciplinary learning environment. Her students have given her a 3.5 on RateMyProfessor, with a slew of good to mixed reviews on her teaching methods.

The Book

Growing up, I hated non-fiction. If it wasn’t a biography about a kick-ass woman (looking at you, Lucille Ball!) then I wouldn’t give it the time of day. College changed that. Academics taught me that research is fascinating, gives you an inside look at society, people, the reasons things are the way they are. Reality can often be just as interesting if not more so than fiction, because you know every facet of the material is truth.

This book is not so much about pro-life and pro-choice as it is about abortion, and the beliefs of various American cultures concerning abortion and why they believe what they do. Rudy states that abortion means different things to different people because it is understood from the perspectives of a variety of individuals with different realities. The realities outlined in Pro/Pro include liberalism, Roman Catholicism, American Catholicism, televangelism, and feminism, which are each explained to have a different moral and ethical belief that affects their opinions concerning abortion.

What makes this book so difficult and inaccessible comes down to language use and sentence construction. Rudy uses big college words gleaned from her various disciplines (see above) that include theories and concepts not typically studied or known by many who may be interested in learning more about the topics the book addresses, but who have not pursued higher education.

As for sentence construction, many sentences and paragraphs are so wordy and dense that I had to read them one sentence at a time, over and over again, emphasizing different words and concepts, until I could wrap my head around it. Many times I found myself reading no more than one page per day, requiring absolute silence in my environment in order to have the concentration required to slog through the book.

But still, I loved it. This book has so much to say, so many ideas that intrigued me, that I agreed with, so many points that challenged or changed my own beliefs on abortion and feminism. For instance, rather than pro-choice, I now consider myself to be a reproductive rights activist, which is a much more accurate label for my own belief system, but which I did not fully understand before reading Pro/Pro.

My recommendation for getting through this book is this:

1. Read the introduction first. Rudy uses the intro to address her personal beliefs, and to break down the topic of each chapter.
2. Read Chapter 6. Here the reader learns why Christianity having so many varying viewpoints is a problem. It summarizes and further explains several of the concepts pertaining to Christianity that are discussed in previous chapters.
3. Read Chapter 7. This chapter explains solutions suggested by other theorists, and why Rudy thinks they are problematic. Then, Rudy discusses her own stances and solutions based on the concepts introduced in earlier chapters. Chapters 6 and 7 provide good summaries of the previous chapters that can help the reader to better understand the rest of the book. This brings me to my last suggestion, which is:
4.Read the rest. You’ve read all the summaries, and are now much better prepared to attempt the rest of the book. It’s difficult to get through, but it’s so worth it if you can.

A cultural Marxists approach to the abortion debate. Thoroughly disappointed in this.
