From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mary Anne Warren is an American writer and philosophy professor. She is noted for her writings on the issue of abortion.

She is also known for her writings on the implications of sex selection[3] and about animal treatment.

For many years Warren was a professor of philosophy at San Francisco State University.
