Notes: 
Review, March 2003: "Abortion" is a word that, when uttered in public, elicits strong emotions, deeply held convictions and divisive debate. Yet, about half of all unplanned pregnancies in the world end up in induced abortion, and four-fifths occur in developing countries. Some women end their pregnancies safely and legally, yet so many more are forced to do so clandestinely and often dangerously. The authors of this book offer a fact-based, common sense account of how and why women have abortions, and what can be done to make them safe. In the first section, they explore a variety of personal, social, economic and health issues affecting women and couples in their efforts to regulate their fertility and the role that safe and unsafe abortion plays in this endeavor. In the second part, they look at the legal, medical, and political institutions that shape the environment in which abortion occurs. The authors conclude with the need to ensure that all abortions are performed correctly, legally, and humanely, and that it be understood as a normal part of good medical care.
