The Bush Administration, Sex and the Moral Agenda

Ashbee Edward

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines the abortion policy of the administration of George W. Bush. Though Roe v. Wade remained intact during the Bush years, Planned Parenthood continued to be taxpayer funded and pro-life campaigners made significant progress. Legislative bills that were or would have been vetoed in the previous administration were passed into effect, including the ban on partial-birth abortion and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. The chapter argues that abortion battles and the process of polarisation between pro-lifers and the pro-choice movement can, in part, be attributed to the character of the moral beliefs which surround the issue.

Keywords:   abortion policy, George W. Bush, Roe vs. Wade, Planned Parenthood, pro-life campaigners, partial-birth abortion, Unborn Victims, moral beliefs
