Dilemma and Debate
  • Kate Maloy

Birth or Abortion? Private Struggles in a Political World is a collection of almost fifty stories about women and men who have had to decide whether to continue or end an unplanned or medically troubled pregnancy. Some chose birth, some abortion. Some made peace with their decision, some say they never will. Their stories, however, can help to ease the pain and prejudice of a country divided for decades over the bitter issue of abortion. Together their diverse and richly detailed accounts encourage the possibility that the intense public conflict over abortion will give way to humane and rational discourse.
