Abstract:

Women's health has long been seen as a divisive social issue. But behind inflammatory news headlines is an untold story that every man and woman is entitled to know. This factual and eye-opening story recounts how women's health devolved from being a medical issue, supported even by religious groups, to a divisive political debate. Roye, an academic, longtime nurse practitioner and mother of six, also dispels many of the inaccurate, political arguments surrounding abortion and instead shines a light on the real concern at hand - public health. This book is a stirring must-read for anyone concerned with women's rights, as well as those who want to be better informed about this critical public health issue.
