A well written history of abortion in America in the 1800s, from when it was accepted and legal to the campaign to make it illegal. For those who believe abortion isn't constitutional you should recognize that the COTUS doesn't mention it, and that the 9th Amendment guarantees the retention of rights even if not mentioned in the COTUS.
