Encounter BooksThe Cost of Choice: Women Evaluate the Impact of Abortion
The twelve essays in this book, all by women active in the public square, argue that legal abortion has harmed women - socially, medically, psychologically and culturally. Law professor Elizabeth Schiltz describes the unsettling reactions she faced for "choosing" to give birth to a child with Down Syndrome. Psychiatrist Joanne Angelo tells how abortion has affected women she has treated. With essays by imminent women such as Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Eleonore Raoul Professor of the Humanities at Emory University, this book shows another side of feminism and captures the complexity of a divisive social issue.
