Praise

 
“No one knows more about reproductive rights in the United States than Carole Joffe. This indispensable book . . . is both harrowing and galvanizing.”—Michelle Goldberg, author of The Means of Reproduction
 
“Terrific—clear, terse, and full of things you need to know.”Katha Pollitt, author of Virginity or Death!
 
“Riveting. Joffe’s insights into popular culture, alongside her analysis of the recent barrage of ballot initiatives, are spot on in explaining the growth of negative attitudes about abortion.”—Eleanor J. Bader, Feminist Review
 
“Instructive and memorable.”—Emily Bazelon, Slate
