From the Publisher"An important collection of edited interviews . . . By recovering the participation of clergy and medical practitioners in the reproductive choice struggle, Cline reminds readers of the many kinds of people, organizations, and activities that combine to make a social movement."
—Oral History Review
"David Cline has assembled an amazingly rich repository of testimonies chronicling a community's efforts to facilitate reproductive autonomy at a time when the state prohibited such activities. This work is a major contribution to the project of preserving and disseminating the histories of activism, feminism, and reproductive politics in the United States."
—Rickie Solinger, author of Pregnancy and Power: A Short History of Reproductive Politics in America (2005) and other books
"A powerful document of the history of abortion before and after legalization, this book offers a compelling collection of oral history interviews that weave together the story of abortion in an entire community. Creating Choice gives voice to a group of people whose stories are crucial to our understanding of women's history but who have so far not been heard. This collection is not only crucial to students of the history of abortion. It provides an equally rare look into the history of the sexual revolution and the women's health movement on college campuses. Creating Choice is wonderfully accessible, an important collection for anybody trying to understand the history of women and sexuality."
