9780029298657: Abortionist

The story of Ruth Barnett, who performed more than forty thousand abortions between 1918 and 1968 without losing a single patient, reveals how the antiabortion laws benefitted racketeers, syndicates, politicians, and the press, reestablished state control of women's bodies, and victimized women.

From the Inside Flap:

"A brutally frank, often shocking, and yet always uplifting tale about the abortion experience in Portland, Oregon, in the years before Roe v. Wade. . . . Nowhere will you find a better argument for constitutional protection of choice."—Ellen Chesler, author of Women of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America

"This is an incredible book that will have a dramatic impact on people's view of China, exposing the underside of China's incredible growth, and the human sacrifice that may be as great as 'The Great Leap Forward' or Mao's Cultural Revolution. What we witness here is the Chinese working class being present in its own unmaking and remaking, its struggle to come to terms with the present through the lens of the past, and, finally, its uncertain hope for the future. This is one of the most important books I've read in years!"—Michael Burawoy, Department of Sociology, University of California Berkeley
