In America's highly emotional debate on abortion, pro-life and pro-choice advocates have had their say.

This was a rough book for a prolifer to read. Even though Poppema tried to paint abortion as a good thing (which she no doubt believes) she tells the story of a plumber shocked when he was asked to put an industrial size garbage disposal in her clinic (you can guess what for) she advocates flushing the bodies of aborted babies into the sewer though admitting the "larger pieces of tissue" might block drains. No mention that those "larger pieces of tissue" are human arms or legs.

Includes memoir, political philosophies, patients' own stories, and demystification of what goes on in a well run professional abortion clinic. Poppema openly discusses her political beliefs and values as well as giving objective, accurate information.

I liked reading this book, but it was more of a feminist diatribe and memoir than about being an abortion doctor. I thought it would be more about the general experience of being an abortion doctor, though I did enjoy reading it. It's also out-of-date, as it was published in 1996.

Very interesting, but now somewhat dated, as it was written in 1996.
