Jane Against the World: Roe V. Wade and the Fight for Reproductive Rights - Paperback

$13.99

A riveting look at the tumultuous history of abortion rights in the United States leading up to the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, by award-winning author and journalist Karen Blumenthal.

"Jane Against the World reads, at times, like a legal thriller. I kept reminding myself, “Wait, I know how this ends."... Blumenthal has done her job well: presenting the history, and leaving readers to wrestle with what the future may hold for families facing unwanted pregnancies." - The New York Times

"Written in clear, accessible language, as lively as it is thorough, the book presents the issue as far more nuanced and complex than the often sharply divided “pro-choice” and “pro-life” stances it is often boiled down to." - Publishers Weekly

"An account of the tumultuous struggle for abortion rights in the United States... Gripping reading; necessary for every library serving teens." - Kirkus Reviews

Tracing the path to the 19th century to the pivotal 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 its repercussions that have rippled through generations of American women.

This urgent book is the perfect tool to facilitate discussion and awareness of a topic that affects each and every person in the United States.
