  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 george | 5/4/2013

    " A great explanation of the origins of the landmark case from the woman who knows the most about it; as well as a good history lesson in the pre-Roe days. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 dead letter office | 4/11/2013

    " sarah weddington argued her first contested case before the supreme court while in her mid-twenties. (the case was Roe v. Wade and she won.) she wrote this book about the case. it's part political history, part memoirs, and part legal thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dganci82 | 3/24/2013

    " I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Sarah Weddington while I was in college. This book was a straight forward account of the struggle for women to gain control over our bodies. A great read no matter your stance on abortion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 3/8/2012

    " I can't believe I waited so long to read this, but it's a great story for anyone interested in reproductive rights. It also contains some excellent anecdotes about the life of a woman lawyer, well before there were very many of them running around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla | 7/3/2011

    " A timely review of how far women's reproductive rights have come, and what we have to lose if we do not stay involved. Do we really want someone else to make those personal choices for us? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 12/8/2009

    " Wonderfully lucid and straightforward, Sarah Weddington's book presents the history of Roe v. Wade (and several related abortion cases) without sacrificing clarity of language or the urgency behind the words. In the age of Stupak, we need books like this more than ever. "
