About this title
This book brings a human dimension to the debate about a woman's right to choose. Bonavoglia's interviews with 25 well-known people (mostly women, including Rite Moreno, Margot Kidder, Whoopi Goldberg, Grace Paley, Ursula LeGuin, Elizabeth Janeway) show that the decision to abort is never taken lightly and that it should be made privately, without government interference. The courage of those interviewed--who sought illegal abortions or helped others obtain them, chose to terminate pregnancies resulting from rape, and faced the possibility of bearing children with birth defects--is evident. They demonstrate a strong belief in the right to choose. Most had children when they were ready. Unlike Laurence Tribe's legal examination in Abortion: The Clash of Absolutes ( LJ 6/15/90), this book makes real the experience of abortion. Highly recommended for most collections.
