Overview

Roe vs. Wade: The Fight over Life and Liberty by Nancy Tompkins

In Roe v. Wade (1973), the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy but allowed states to impose restrictions in the second trimester to protect the health of the mother and in the third trimester to protect the life of the fetus. This book provides an engaging narrative of this important case, its personalities, and the social issues it embraces. It also examines the effects of the Court's decision on the individuals involved and on American society.
