Summary

Surprising firsthand accounts from the front lines of abortion provision reveal the persistent cultural, political, and economic hurdles to access

While ''abortion wars'' may bring to mind the very real threat of anti-abortion violence, this timely book shows how a pervasive stigma-cultivated by the religious right-operates less dramatically but just as effectively to impede access by shaming women and marginalizing abortion providers in their own professional communities.

InDispatches from the Abortion Wars,reproductive-health researcher Carole Joffe immerses readers in on-the-ground stories of doctors grappling with the obstacles of providing abortion care for their patients, while also offering hope for a more compassionate standard of women's health care.
