An inspirational tale of the two women who created the court case that brought America abortion-on-demand...and a fascinating account of the pro-abortion movement in its early years.

A wonderfully clear, detailed history of the litigation and an inside account of the debate among the justices as the Roe decision was hammered out.

A solid work of cultural and legal history, useful even for those familiar with the story.
