Ethicist Kathy Rudy examines 4 platforms of trust - Catholicism, evangelical Protestantism, feminism, and classical liberalism as expressed within the scientific occupation - and divulges the position abortion performs in each one. She indicates why, in each one case, rules, approximately abortion are not likely to alter - simply because they emerge from each one community's deeply held values and issues, which differ from neighborhood to group. She demonstrates that developing the abortion debate as a decision among "pro-life" and "pro-choice" has distorted and misrepresented the ways in which many folks relate to the problem of abortion, and has obscured the variety of trust either between and inside of groups and participants.
