Since the first publication of Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood in 1985, the politics of abortion have only become more fraught. With updates throughout, this important study examines the issues, people, and beliefs on both sides of the abortion conflict. Drawing on data from decades of public documents and newspaper accounts, as well as hundreds of interviews with both pro-life and pro-choice activists, author Kristin Luker argues that moral positions on abortion are intimately tied to views on sexual behavior, the care of children, family life, technology, and the importance of the individual.
