Overview

If most North Americans admit they support a woman’s right to an abortion, why does the controversy still rage? Are there issues that the pro-choice movement hasn’t addressedâ issues that remain confusing and unresolved for women?

Kathleen McDonnell describes the often conflicting needs and emotions experienced prior to and after abortion. She also unravels the ethical debates surrounding the issue, examines the constituency and strategy of the anti-abortion movement and evaluates the arguments regarding men’s rights in abortion decisions. McDonnell’s feminist exploration places these issues within the context of rapidly changing reproductive technology and the much broader matter of reproductive rights.

This classic feminist text is still extremely topical today, and relevant for a whole new generation of women.
