In this important study of the abortion controversy in the United States, Kristin Luker examines the issues, people, and
beliefs on both sides of the abortion conflict. She draws data from twenty years of public documents and newspaper
accounts, as well as over two hundred interviews with both pro-life and pro-choice activists. She 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.
