In the past half century, we have moved from full criminalization of abortion to full legalization, although unequal access to services and violent protest continue to tear apart the contemporary landscape. In this provocative volume, a diverse group of essayists--journalists, scholars, activists, physicians, philosophers--chronicle the evolution of one of the most debated issues of our time. Unique in its attention to so many aspects of the debate, ABORTION WARS places key issues such as medical practice, activism, legal strategies, and the meaning of choice in the deeply complex historical context of the past half century.
