Abortion and Divorce in Western Law: Mary Ann Glendon

All laws tell stories, says Harvard law professor Mary Ann Glendon—stories about who we are, where we came from, where we are going, and what we value. Can Americans learn something from the abortion and divorce laws of other countries? Glendon says we have a lot to learn, and that it may surprise us. Glendon, whose field is comparative law, found her own assumptions challenged when she started the research for her prize-winning book, Abortion and Divorce in Western Law, which contrasts the legal practices of Europe and America as they bear on the difficult choices of these controversial issues. In this program with Bill Moyers, Glendon talks about family issues on both sides of the Atlantic. (30 minutes)
