Contents Is Roe viable? -- Liberty, equality, and abortion -- From reproductive choice to reproductive Barbie : the politics of visibility -- Conclusion: Abortion and democracy
Summary Shrage argues that Roe v Wade's regulatory scheme of a six-month time span for abortion on demand polarized the public and obscured alternatives with potentially broader support. She explores the origins of that scheme, then defends an alternate one--with a time span shorter than 6 months fornon-therapeutic abortions--that could win broad support needed to make legal abortion services available to all women
