I can't say I 'enjoyed' this book because I found a lot of it terrifying - but it is a well written (and as timely as humanly possible) account of the frontal assault being waged on abortion rights in the United States right now. I very much appreciated being able to see what was going on nation-wide from a state-by-state perspective in understandable and approachable language and I enjoyed the final chapter's look at and hope for the future. Pieklo and Marty did an excellent job making the stuf ...more

The Best Repro Health Contemporary History 101 You Can Ask For!

I work in the reproductive health movement, so I did not expect this book to be a revelation. I monitor this work on a daily basis, so I assumed I had a very advanced understanding of the latest fights over reproductive health. Wow, was I wrong! The authors laid our in rich detail the minutia of the latest attacks on reproductive health and justice. They bring complex legal battles, arcane regulatory fights, and little known individu

Recommends it for: Anyone interested in the state-by-state assault on women's rights.
Recommended to Michael by: Impulse purchase.
Marty and Pieklo have written a frightening wake-up call on the state of reproductive rights in this country. Each chapter focuses on a particular state and the attempts in that states to limit abortion access, with particular focus on legislative and judicial actions that have occurred under the Obama administration. The prognosis is not good. From "fetal pain" bills and mandatory ultrasounds to TRAP (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers, attempts to close clinics by flooding them with unr ...more

Though attacks on women's rights has been debated, chewed over, and measured in election after election, they haven't been chronicled so thoroughly or methodically until this book. I've long admired the work of Jessica Mason Pieklo and Robin Marty, and I'm glad I got a chance to finally read this book.

Marty and Pieklo go over legislative fights, state by state, to demonstrate the multifaceted attack on women's rights, from the grassroots anti-abortion groups' efforts to send teddy bears to the

An extremely important read for anyone active in the pro-choice, pro-family planning, and women's rights movement. Many of the issues Marty and Pieklo present will not be unfamiliar to anyone active in those movements, but they do an incredible job tying all the threads of the twelve different state laws they analyze together to show very clearly how America is moving towards a system of women's reproductive healthcare that is separated on just about any line you can imagine: racial, socioeconom ...more

Without this book, it's impossible to see the road map being used by extremists and their political allies to erode our rights. Marty & Pieklo's conversational style breaks down the legal framework with unmatched skill.
Whether you're just now waking up to the state of reproductive rights or have been involved for decades, this book is for you.

An excellent overview of recent state and federal level efforts to restrict access to abortion and reproductive health care. The authors do a good job of covering law and policy in an interesting way. I particularly appreciated that they tied current policies in a particular state to histories of similar restrictions, giving readers both breadth and depth to the struggle for reproductive rights.

This book was informative but depressing to read due to the content & relevance to current events. The authors did a great job laying out the status of reproductive health across the U.S. The book is timely due to the continued attacks on women's reproductive health access across the nation.
