From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—Hillstrom provides readers "with an objective, historical overview" of the 1973 Supreme Court decision and "its impact on the political, cultural, and social landscape of the United States." In doing so, she presents students with an invaluable reference for reports. The first section provides a history of abortion and abortion-reform movements, the Roe v. Wade case, and challenges that the decision has faced and continues to face. Hillstrom's writing is concise, objective, and engaging throughout. She clearly defines unfamiliar terminology and convincingly defends her use of the terms "pro-life" and "pro-choice" as widely accepted by these groups. She also succinctly illustrates that the topics of birth control and abortion are parallel debates. Ten four- to five-page biographies comprise the second section, offering background on figures from Margaret Sanger to Robert Bork. The final part, "Primary Sources," includes the texts of essays, articles, party platforms, and more (all introduced) in support of positions on both sides of the debate. Black-and-white photos, political cartoons, and pull-quotes appear throughout.—Wendy Scalfaro, G. Ray Bodley High School Library, Fulton, NY
