Sex, Morality, and the Lawcombines legal opinion and philosophical analysis to explore the controversial issues surrounding state control of sexual and reproductive behavior. This unique anthology focuses on six topics of enduring moral, social, and legal concern: homosexual sex, prostitution, pornography, abortion, sexual harassment, and rape. Included in each are substantial excerpts from recent or influential court decisions, followed by scholarly essays bearing specific relevance to the arguments of the courts. These papers, representing a variety of perspectives, raise and rigorously debate complex moral and social issues.
