"[A]n important book that energetically calls on readers to look beyond benefit-cost and cost-effectiveness calculations, reflect, and seek to ground public policy and administration firmly in morality." ??"David H. Rosenbloom, Public Administration Review Abortion, Execution, and the Consequences of Taking Life focuses on the relationship between public morality and personal action in the American political community. This book explores the model??s first source of truth, biblical scripture, as it applies to the public actions of murder, abortion, and capital punishment. These realities are examined in a variety of settings, resulting in a mosaic pattern of public action about capital punishment and abortion. Slack underscores the importance of government??s role of providing outward justice, as well as the citizen??s responsibility to be supportive of government tasks in order to reconcile the reality of life-taking with the moral compass professed in the American political community.
