    It's rare that a non fiction book affects me so viscerally but this was a real gut puncher I know that political conditions now have made abortion a serious topic for debate yet we often lose the human aspect of the argument This book did a fantastic job of focusing on the women for whom abortion is an important service It also did a great job of talking about the actual physicians who provide abortions Their role in the whole process is vital and they also make huge changes in regards to abortion policy Joffe laid out the history of abortion clearly and with very readable language She wove the stories of 45 different abortion providers together to paint a picture of a health care system that needs some serious changes Pro choice or not this is an important look at a medical problem facing the US The one problem that I had with it which is not at all the author's fault is that the last chapter was not super relevant given that it has been than 20 years since it was published I now need to go do some research to get current statistics But overall a very good and highly informative read

    Interesting and informative booka lot of this covered stuff I already knew from other things I've read and I kind of wish it went in depth into providers' lives pre Roe v Wade into harassment they faced et cetera and less into the looking into the future stuff Though maybe this is because this book was written in the mid 90s and therefore we've already seen the future Page 205 was particularly disturbing for me considering this

    It’s nice to hear from the doctors who know what zero access to abortion healthcare looks like We must have providers—and we must have them in every town city village rural area Access for ALL is VITAL Keep abortion healthcare legal keep it funded keep it safe There are some horrific stories in this book How could we ever think of going back?

    Carole Joffe provides and in depth and vital look at the pre Roe generation of providers many of whom have become icons in the abortion rights movement For anyone not of age during the early days from before the decision and through the FACE act it's a must read for getting a clear grasp of movement history from a provider's viewpoint
