While I didn't think this book was particularly well-written, I couldn't put it down; I think this book will stay with me. Reproductive health is something I'm very passionate about; I don't need to be convinced that access to a safe & legal abortion is really, really important. And that's the very point this book sets out to prove. I didn't expect to get much more out of it than an affirmation of my beliefs.

The stories of the women in this book floored me. Several times, I had to put the book down to process & come to terms with what I'd read. This book is eye-opening, not just for those who might not agree with its thesis, but for those who do, and think they understand just how hard it is ensure that abortion remains a safe & legal procedure for women who seek it out.
