This book traces the roots of the contemporary abortion debate in the tradition of existential philosophy of the Sartrian type by investigating the work of four feminist writers on abortion—each with a specific focus: Simone de Beauvoir, Mary Daly, Carol Gilligan, and Beverly Wildung Harrison.  No Higher Court attempts to envisage a pro-life feminism that is able to provide a "new world for women without abortion as its linchpin and bedrock."
