Pierce (philosophy, North Carolina State U.) argues that moral rights constitute a more solid grounding for ethics in human affairs and feminist thought than concepts of natural law, now in fashion with many conservatives and even some Supreme Court justices. Drawing on Aristotle and Aquinas, as well as modern papal encyclicals and Supreme Court cases, she asserts that natural law, with its doctrine of a supposed hierarchy of natural purpose, mystifies women's nature and justifies restricting them to a predetermined social stratum.
