Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A fascinating book which sets to rest a number of preconceptions on the subject. Easy to read and yet hard-hitting."—Marlette Rebhorn, ustin Community College

"Should be an eye-opener to those who think that religious objections were at the root of anti-abortion legislation and equally to those who think that abortion has been a matter of life and death."—Carl N. Degler, Stanford University

"A superb example of the way history can inform a current contentious controversy."—Journal of American History

"Mohr makes it abundantly clear that Supreme Court decisions of the 1970s were not a modern weakening of moral standards but a return to what Americans believed and practiced a hundred years ago."—The Christian Century

"An altogether lucid review of American abortion policy in the 19th century."—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
