From the Publisher"Rachel Roth has written a compelling, important book about women, fetuses, and inequality, building on and contributing to a growing body of research on the social and political significance of fetal subjects. . . . Roth is the first to offer an in-depth, comprehensive overview of the contemporary terrain of fetal rights."—Monica J. Casper, University of California, Santa Cruz. Contemporary Sociology, Vol. 30, No. 4
"Making Women Pay is an outstanding book. . . ."—Kate Greene, Department of Political Science, University of Southern Mississippi. The Law and Politics Book Review. October, 2000.
"Making Women Pay is a small but powerful book that forces the reader to make a significant paradigm shift. . . An extremely well-researched and comprehensive examination of policy and law. . . . Rachel Roth has written a book that should be required reading for health professionals dealing with women and their fetuses, politicians and legislators who hold a woman's liberty in their hands, and bioethicists who are asked to consult on many of these complicated issues. . . . I would add, we can't afford not to read this book!"—Ian R. Holzman, MD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Journal of the American Medical Women's Association. Fall, 2000
"Roth's scrupulously researched book. . . documents an assault on women's rights waged in the name of fetal rights. . . . Highly recommended at all levels."—Choice. September, 2000.
"Against a backdrop of gripping stories about actual women's legal experiences. . . this book reveals how judicial decisions and public policies that grant fetal rights tend to displace women's rights. . . Comprehensive."—Janet Gellman, Banana Slug Bulletin, Spring 2001
"Rachel Roth is a fine scholar; I'm impressed by how smart she is and how well she has handled this complex terrain."—Rickie Solinger, author of Wake Up Little Susie: Single Pregnancy and Race Before Roe v. Wade
"Rachel Roth provides an exhaustive study of judicial and legislative actions regarding fetal rights between 1973 and 1992. Her analysis surpasses previous treatments of the topic by providing a more thorough account of state actions and by developing an innovative theoretical approach for assessing the costs of fetal rights concepts to women's employment, citizenship, and freedom. Roth's cogent analysis makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the political implications of this highly charged issue."—Carole McCann, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
