- Catalyzed by the trauma of a pre-Roe v. Wade abortion, which required the consent of the husband who deserted her and a hospital panel made up entirely of men, Kate Michelman devoted her life to protecting the rights of women and children. Serving from 1985 until 2004 as the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, she succeeded in moving the question "Who decides?" to the mainstream, transforming the political debate, and defining a woman's freedom to choose as a fundamental American liberty. Today, Supreme Court appointments threaten to eviscerate Roe's protections, forcing women to live at the whim of politicians and further limiting their reproductive rights. This book is a wake-up call to American women to defend their freedom. Not just a book about abortion, it is about freedom, about bringing children into the world under the best possible circumstances, and about a woman's right to assume her equal place in American society.--From publisher description.
