What I'm reading:
Abortion Rites: A Social History of Abortion in America, by Marvin N. Olasky
Great history of abortion in America. Lots of facts and information I didn't know and probably must reading for anyone serious about debating the abortion issue.
The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service, by Laura Kaplan
Not trying to be glib here but basically the story of a group of women pimping for various abortionists before legalization. Seems very similar to the world of drug dealing and prostitution and if these women wanted to prove that women could be just as depraved as men in these similar but traditionally male dominated "businesses" they certainly succeeded. It would be good to hear today from women who were customers of this service. I haven't gotten far enough to know if the author tracks down any of these women but I kind of doubt it.
Articles of Faith: A Frontline History of the Abortion Wars, by Cynthia Gorney
I've just gotten into this and my first impression is that anyone opposed to abortion before Roe v. Wade was caught completely off-guard by the very well organized efforts of various groups to convince the public, courts, religious leaders, medical community, and media of abortion's "positive" side in order pave the way for its legalization. How does that quote go? -- A lie is half way around the world before the truth has a chance to get his pants on.
