Abortion: The Clash of Absolutes. New York: W. W. Norton. Page 1 1 Chronology Classical Greece Abortion is legal, although an abortion provider can be punished for failing to inform the father. In The Republic, Plato states that women who become pregnant after the age of 40 should be compelled to have abortions. Aristotle believes that the state should determine the number of children a married couple can have and that any woman becoming pregnant after reaching the allotted number should have an abortion.

The law, which Page 5 seems primarily intended to protect women from dying as a result of taking potions meant to induce abortions, applies only to abortions after quickening. The maximum penalty is life imprisonment for the person who administered the poison; the woman herself (if she survived) was not considered guilty of any crime (Mohr 1978, 22). 1825 Missouri passes an abortion statute that, like Connecticut's, is primarily an antipoison measure. 1827 Illinois passes an abortion poison control measure on the model of Connecticut's 1821 statute.
