Jane Against The World: Roe v. Wade and the Fight for Reproductive Rights

From award-winning author Karen Blumenthal comes this deep and passionate look at the riveting history of the fight for reproductive rights in the United States. Tracing the path to the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade and the continuing battle for women's rights, Blumenthal examines, in a straightforward tone, the root causes of the current debate around abortion and repercussions that have affected generations of American women.

This eye-opening book, with its journalistic look at the history of abortion, is the perfect tool to facilitate difficult discussions and awareness of a topic that is rarely touched on in school but affects each and every young person. Clear, accessible, and nuanced, and complete with a discussion of recent pushback and restrictions on reproductive rights, this is an important and necessary book for a new decade.

Description

"Along the way there are brief biographies of key figures — some as famous (or infamous) as Anthony Comstock and Margaret Sanger, some virtually unknown but no less fascinating — placed within a nuanced context and punctuated by 'Pregnant Pause[s]': occasionally humorous, sometimes infuriating, often poignant sketches detailing the history of biological knowledge, birth control techniques, legal issues, popular opinion, and religious proclamations.... Gripping reading; necessary for every library serving teens." — Kirkus Reviews
