The House of Atreus Web Site


New! Supreme Court Decisions


This web page develops some of the themes laid out in my book, The House of Atreus: Abortion as a Human Rights Issue (Praeger Publishers, Greenwood Publishing Group, 1999). In The House of Atreus, I make the case for protecting the unborn within the larger context of human rights.

Like The House of Atreus itself, this site focuses on abortion, but it also includes a variety of useful sites relating to other right-to-life and human rights issues: capital punishment, eugenics, euthanasia, the Nazis' crimes against humanity, human rights treaties, etc. There are also links to religious resources concerning human rights issues, numerous medical sites, speeches by noted human rights champions, and a variety of legal resources. Together, I hope these resources will provide visitors with some thought-provoking perspectives on human rights--particularly the right to life--and a convenient gateway for exploring a host of related issues.

Hopefully, in their own small way, these materials will help foster the notion expressed in the Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights more than 50 years ago, that "recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world."
