What People are Saying About This
Daniels's detailed discussion of cases involving fetal protection versus maternal rights will engage law, and public policy…The book is approachable, written in ordinary English obfuscation and much of the folderol to which we are often treated these days…Daniels's text may prove to be a standard reference work for scholars in years to come.
