Abortion has long been a hot-button issue. In 1973, in the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court finally decided that women should be allowed to have an abortion, with some limits. This book gives the background on the case and the path the case took to make it to the Supreme Court and presents both the majority and dissenting opinions related to the case. It also takes a look at the lasting impact the case has continued to have on policies and the legal system. Also included are questions to consider, primary source documents, and a chronology of the case.

Eine Welt ohne Gott ist Teufelswerk Der Planet Lithia umkreist Alpha Arietis im Sternbild des Widders, 50 Lichtjahre vom Sonnensystem entfernt, und ist eine erdähnlich Welt – mit einem wesentlichen Unterschied: Lithia ist ein Paradies, bewohnt von intelligenten, aber absolut friedfertigen Riesenechsen. Im Jahr 2050 irdischer Zeitrechnung nehmen Erdbewohner und Lithianer Kontakt miteinander auf. Für den Jesuitenpater Ruiz-Sanchez, Mitglied der Sternenexpedition, ist dieses Paradies eine Falle des Teufels, der hier den Menschen eine Welt vorgaukeln will, wie sie vor dem Sündenfall war. Die Lithianer leben nämlich nach christlichen Maximen, an ein höheres Wesen glauben sie jedoch nicht. Lithia ist somit eine Herausforderung für jeden Menschen, schleunigst „normale“ Zustände herzustellen – was auch prompt in die Wege geleitet wird ...

Johannes Calvin entwickelte ein neues Verständnis von Rechten und Freiheiten, von Kirche und Staat, das das Rechtssystem der frühen protestantischen Staaten formte. Seine Lehren, die sich schnell in Westeuropa ausbreiteten, wurden immer wieder durch große Krisen herausgefordert: die französischen Religionskriege, die niederländische Revolte, die englische Revolution, die amerikanische Kolonisation und Revolution. In solchen Krisen waren es Anhänger Calvins, die sein Denken aktualisierten und der neuen Situation anpassten. Eine Reihe grundlegender westlicher Auffassungen von Religion und politischen Rechten, sozialem und konfessionellem Pluralismus, Föderalismus und Gesellschaftsvertrag haben im frühmodernen Calvinismus ihren Ursprung.
