Beschreibung

Strong support among women was key to Obama's reelection. At the start of his second term, it is time for Barack Obama, forty years afterRoe v. Wade, to finally help lead us to demystify abortion. One-third of all American womenwill have an abortion by the time they are 45, and most of those women are already mothers. Yet, the topicremains taboo. In this provocative book on the heels of the Planned Parenthood controversy, Sarah Erdreich presents the antidote to the usualabortion debates. Inextricably connected to issues of autonomy, privacy, and sexuality, the abortion debate remains home base for the culture wars inAmerica. Yet, there is more common ground than meets the eye in favor of choice. Generation Roedelves into phenomena such as ",abortion-recovery counseling,", ",crisis pregnancy centers,",and the infamous anti-choice ",black children are an endangered species", billboards. It tells the stories of thosewho risk their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field. And it outlines the outrageous legislativebattles that are being waged against abortion rights all over the country. With an inspiring spirit and a forward-looking approach, Erdreich holds abortion up, unabashedly, as amoral and fundamental human right.

Klappentext

Strong support among women was key to Obama's reelection. At the start of his second term, it is time for Barack Obama, forty years after Roe v. Wade, to finally help lead us to demystify abortion. One-third of all American women will have an abortion by the time they are 45, and most of those women are already mothers. Yet, the topic remains taboo. In this provocative book on the heels of the Planned Parenthood controversy, Sarah Erdreich presents the antidote to the usual abortion debates.

Inextricably connected to issues of autonomy, privacy, and sexuality, the abortion debate remains home base for the culture wars in America. Yet, there is more common ground than meets the eye in favor of choice. Generation Roe delves into phenomena such as "abortion-recovery counseling," "crisis pregnancy centers," and the infamous anti-choice "black children are an endangered species" billboards. It tells the stories of those who risk their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field. And it outlines the outrageous legislative battles that are being waged against abortion rights all over the country. With an inspiring spirit and a forward-looking approach, Erdreich holds abortion up, unabashedly, as a moral and fundamental human right.
