Summary
In Conflicts of Rights, John R. Rowan investigates possible moral justifications for rights alleged to exist in four contexts: abortion, affirmative action, welfare, and pornography freedoms. In doing so, he reaches conclusions about the morally appropriate policy for each issue and also about the effectiveness of rights language in general
