Work in progress

I currently have papers in progress on maternal mortality from backstreet abortions, whether abortion is healthcare, abortion pill reversal, eugenic/disability-selective abortion, buffer/censorship zones, evidence on reduction of abortion rates, the societal consequences (particularly for women) of abortion legalisation, abortion in cases of rape, abortion where the mother’s life is in danger, and a variety of other topics in the ethics of abortion, and ethics and philosophy more generally. If you are interested in any of these, please get in touch.

I am also writing a number of books, including a comprehensive handbook on abortion ethics and policy and a book on Christianity and abortion. I am editing a volume on the reduction of abortion rates.
