Summary Annotation "In Behind Every Choice Is a Story, Gloria Feldt assembles scores of letters written by patients, teachers, doctors, teenagers, mothers, and other women and men about love, sex, pregnancy, and family - all universal yet, at the same time, unique experiences. The book reveals stories that are touching, inspiring, and sometimes humorous. Taken together, they provide a social context beyond the political public forum for reproductive rights and health care choices. These are stories that speak in personal, quiet voices of people whose lives are defined by their choices." "Behind Every Choice Is a Story also traces Gloria Feldt's personal journey from the dusty oil fields of West Texas where, at the age of 20, she was mother to three children ... to her life-changing experiences as a Head Start teacher and activist in the civil rights and women's movements ... to her current standing as one of the most influential voices in the reproductive freedom movement."--BOOK JACKET.
