Abstract: Few studies have examined the group of people who strongly oppose abortion yet support the death penalty. Those studies that have investigated the subject show that a punitive orientation toward criminal offenders and a preference for a literal interpretation of the Bible are the strongest predictors of membership in this pro-life/pro-death penalty group. The question addressed in the present paper is whether a person’s gender also influences group membership: Do punitiveness and literalism have the same predictive power for both women and men, or do the predictors vary as a function of gender? The answer to this question is important for public opinion research. Policy implications are discussed.

Abstract: Despite the intensely emotional dynamic between the pro-life and pro-choice movements, scholars have failed to recognize the central role of emotion in the abortion debate, reflecting of the absence of emotions in social movement research more generally. Furthermore, research on the pro-life and pro-choice movements often treats each side individually instead of examining the relationship between them, leaving a gap in our understanding of the abortion debate as a whole. This paper examines the use of vilification in the pro-life and pro-choice movements. Vilification, the process by which one group cultivates a negative image of an opponent, accounts for a great deal of the interaction between movements and counter-movements and plays an important role in how each side views itself and its opposition. Vilification is also a fundamentally emotional process, and as such provides an excellent vantage point for analyzing both movement/countermovement dynamics and the role of emotions in social movements.

Abstract: The purpose of my study is to explore Pro Bono work in Chinese context. Currently, legal profession in China is ongoing a great transformation. One of remarkable symbols is that the professional system has already been fundamentally created in China. Lawyers are not looked as “workers of the state” any more. Rather, lawyers and lawyering are processing  professionalization. As a result, numerous big law firms have been established in mainland China and come to play a vital role in the market. Although we are witnessing a rapid development to big law firms, a sociological study to their pro bono work is limited. How they practice Pro Bono and fulfill their so called professional commitment should be seriously perceived.
To answer this question, I have conducted a content analysis to those Chinese big law firms’ pro bono work. The primary source is official newsletters on their official websites. By analyzing their official websites, I can investigate pro bono practice and then compare it to that of American big law firms. In my study, most well known big law firms are included. Some findings are very meaningful and insightful. Most Chinese law firms are engaged in “for the public good”. From their official websites, it shows that Chinese big law firms are as similar as American big law firms that utilize these social activities as a market advertisement to attract potential business clients and create their positive business image.
However, unlike American big law firms, which devote to Pro Bono work featured by case representation to the poor and use their billable hours to complete mandatory Pro Bono requirement, Chinese big law firms are more likely to participant community services, like donating study stuffs to rural kids, helping those victims of natural calamities, or promulgating the laws depended on local political task. Few big law firms have great interests to “show off “public interests litigation. Also, I find some sorts of Pro Bono with Chinese characteristics. Some activities of communist party have been added into Pro Bono.
One of divergent point in China is that most Chinese big law firms are aiming at fulfilling social responsibility and political duty rather than professional commitment. The meaning of Pro Bono varies between Chinese and American big law firms’ context. In Chinese context, the focus of Pro Bono is to help the poor rather than helping the poor through expertise. The scope of Pro Bono is wider than that of U.S. Also, Pro Bono work has been embedded into political culture. This characteristic may be a convention of Chinese socialism culture. Thus, the lawyering in China still is affected by political power and relatively lack of professional autonomy. Like a invisible hand, political power is still influential and control the system of lawyering.
