Young women talk about abortion Oct 30, 2005
In all the hype around abortion rarely does one hear the young women involved speak for themselves. They do in this book (and at its companion website, www.standupgirl.com). From thousands of letters from young women around the world detailing abortion experiences Becky has distilled some common lessons. These are presented in chapters on exploring the various options a pregnant woman has, how to talk to parents and boyfriends, and what to expect in a pregnancy. In so doing she exposes the fallacy of "choice" as young women actually experience it, how pressured they usually find themselves to abort by the men in their lives and by their mothers. She also helps the reader see past the panic of the moment and the joy that the future can hold. This is a rare book, one anyone interested in abortion, teen pregnancy, fetal development, or the micro-sociology of abortion will find captivating.
