Abortion Wars: A Half Century of Struggle, 1950-2000
In the past half century, we have moved from criminalization of abortion to legalization, although unequal access to services and violent protests continue to tear American society apart. In this provocative volume, a passionate and diverse group of abortion rights proponents--journalists, scholars, activists, lawyers, physicians, and philosophers--chronicles the issues. It places key issues such as medical practice, activism, legal strategies, and the meaning of choice in the deeply complex historical context of the past half-century.
