Her Body, Our Laws : On the Frontlines of the Abortion Wars, from El Salvador to Oklahoma

Oberman, Michelle More by this author...£22.50Out of stock

Drawing on her years of research in El Salvador-- the only country to ban abortion without exception-- Oberman explores what happens when a country makes ending a pregnancy a crime. She reveals the practical experiences of criminalizing abortion, such as selective enforcement, mistaken diagnoses, wrongful convictions, and a thriving black market in abortion drugs. She then turns her attention to Oklahoma, one of the most pro-life states, and reveals how abortion-related laws become incentives or penalties, nudging pregnant women in one direction or another. -- adapted from publisher info
