Margaret Sparrow is the president of the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand. She is the recipient of the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire medal, the New Zealand Suffrage Centennial Medal, and the Distinguished Companions of the New Zealand Order of Merit designation.
From clandestine abortions in the 1940s to the introduction of the contraceptive pill in the 1960s, this comprehensive reference provides a well-rounded review of the legal, medical, and emotional facets of abortions then and now. At the heart of this groundbreaking book are deeply moving personal stories—which encompass suffering and resilience, isolation and community—from women who have experienced an abortion. These accounts are supplemented with the voices of doctors, police, and advocates committed to addressing and improving issues in women’s reproductive health.
