Editorial Reviews

VOYA, October 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 4) - Marilyn Brien
This book from the Teen Rights and Freedoms series consists of sixteen viewpoints on the topic presented. Birth Control reviews historic court cases establishing the right to birth control for women. The conviction of Margaret Sanger in 1917 for operating a birth control clinic, overturning restrictions to birth control for married women, the right to privacy in birth control regardless of marital status, and the right to obtain an abortion portray the long journey in arriving to today’s status. Opposing contemporary viewpoints on teens’ rights to sex education, birth control, and abortion are presented. The books in the series are encyclopedic text that will discourage most teen readers. They will, however, provide much material for motivated high school students seeking a resource for research projects or debate preparation. (Teen Rights and Freedoms) Reviewer: Marilyn Brien; Ages 15 to 18.
