Product Details


“[A] robust and creative playbook – not just to fight back against attacks on reproductive freedom but also to pre-emptively protect and expand those freedoms wherever possible.” New York Times

“The future without Roe is coming straight at us. This is the roadmap you need for the tough times ahead.” —Katha Pollitt, author of Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights

“In Handbook for a Post-Roe America, Marty walks readers through the various futures of abortion rights in the U.S. and provides advice on how to plan ahead.” —Melissa Jeltsen, Huffington Post

“Robin has been the writer I turn to for accurate, practical, and optimism-free information about reproductive rights since I started working in the field. She was the first person I asked to spell out the future for abortion after the 2016 election, and now she’s done it again in generous detail for all of us. Are you a person who may become pregnant, or do you maybe know a person who fits that description? This book is essential for anyone looking to understand and navigate a world without legal abortion.” —Jess McIntosh, co-host Signal Boost on SXM Progress

“Our present dystopian truth is scarier than fiction. Marty’s timely book empowers readers with the wide-reaching wisdom and practical guidance needed to govern and care for ourselves (and each other) in the midst of uncertainty. Marty anchors us with tools and resources that help light our way back to freedom as we navigate through the shadows of attacks on reproductive justice.” —Jamia Wilson, executive director and publisher of the Feminist Press

“If to be forewarned is to be forearmed, Robin Marty’s Handbook for a Post-Roe America is an essential tool for anyone worried about losing access to abortion in the US of A. Practical and straightforward, the book outlines numerous what-ifs. And while it highlights a worst-case scenario in which the Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade, taking away the constitutional right to abortion, it also makes clear that this will not stop the practice.” Los Angeles Review of Books

“As crucial as the practical advice is, the most valuable thing Handbook offers may be the simple reassurance that you can do something. At a time when proponents of abortion rights feel frightened and overwhelmed, Marty reminds readers that this struggle is not new, and precedents for facing it exist … [Handbook for a Post-Roe America is] an indispensable response to a looming threat, offering everything from model legislation to instructions on protecting your privacy in the event of an extralegal abortion.” Rewire

“An essential tool to contend with the Court’s possible overturning– if not further restricting – of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.” —David Rosen, New York Journal of Books
