Review Quotes
Ann Furedi, British Pregnancy Advisory Service
"This important book dispels many of the myths that have been perpetrated about what a society would look like when abortion is treated as other clinical procedures and not subject to criminal sanctions. It is essential reading for anyone studying the law on abortion and its role in public health."
