Joe over at the EO has a nice review of Ramesh Ponnuru’s new book, The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts, and the Disregard for Human Life.
A century from now Americans will consider it absurd and ridiculous to think that the Constitution guarantees the right to abortion, much less embryo-destruction, euthanasia, and infanticide. Until that time comes, though, Ponnuru’s tightly argued, imminently persuasive book will remain essential reading for anyone concerned with the politics of bioethics.
Unfortunately, many people, particularly those unfamiliar with Ponnuru’s writings in National Review, will never see past the inflammatory title (and the Ann Coulter blurb on the cover). They will dismiss the book as the screed of yet another partisan hack, rather than an understated, carefully researched work by a brilliant young conservative intellectual.
