|Full Title||With Liberty and Justice for All: A Life Spent Protecting the Right to Choose|
|Publisher||Hudson Street Press|
Kate Michelman |
From one of the most powerful women in Washington (Washingtonian) and a legend and leader, (Vanity Fair) comes a book that concerns the future of our country, our society, and our world.
Catalyzed by the trauma of a pre-Roe v. Wade abortion, which required the consent of the husband who deserted her and a hospital panel made up entirely of men, Kate Michelman devoted her life to protecting the rights of women and children. Serving from 1985 until 2004 as the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, she succeeded in moving the question Who Decides? to the mainstream, transforming the political debate, and defining a woman's freedom to choose as a fundamental American liberty. Today, the appointment of a single anti-choice judge to the Supreme Court threatens to eviscerate Roe's protections, forcing women to live at the whim of politicians and further limiting their reproductive rights.
With Liberty and Justice for All is an urgent wake-up call to American women to defend their freedom in its hour of greatest danger written by one of the most respected and inspiring leaders of our times. Important and intensely personal, it is not just a book about abortion, but a book about freedom, about bringing children into the world under the best possible circumstances, and about a woman's right to assume her equal place in American society.
