Format: Paperback
This great pamphlet was written back during the days of the fight to win what was promised in Roe V. Wade. It is needed now more than ever. There is no shilly shallying, or equivocation, no sensitivity to those who want to throttle women, and don't give a damn about living children here. Abortion is part of the right of women to their own humanity, to control their own bodies, to live their own lives, to free themselves of the idea they are baby making machines for some man, for some God, for some government, for someone else. Restrictions on it are a recent 19th and 20th Century capitalist affliction--before the late 19th century only rich people could afford safe abortions-- aimed at producing cannon fodder, and keeping women in their place.
Read this pamphlet and realize this is not a neutral issue. This right stands as the vanguard in the fight for women's rights against the sexism that is fundamental to society. This book explains how this fight fits into the total resistance of working people to the wars, economic crisis, and growing racism and sexism that characterizes capitalism today.

While this book is not always available on Amazon, it is always available from BooksfromPathfinder, an Amazon Z store that you can get to by clicking on New and Used further up this page!

Format: Paperback
It's 2003 and people like me still have to give up a Saturday a month (or more) to help defend an abortion clinic in the USA. We still have to act as escorts so that women can exercise their right to a safe and legal abortion without running a gauntlet of "pro-lifers" wielding ghastly posters and religious icons. I thought of that as I read the small but powerful pamphlet, "Abortion is a Women's Right"; a collection of essays on this fundamental question.
This pocket-sized booklet is filled with excellent, well-developed arguments in defense of a woman's right to choose. In addition, there is an important interview with Dr. Henry Mogentaler, a pioneer fighter in defense of abortion in Canada in the 1970s. Among other things, the doctor, a Holocaust camp survivor, was imprisoned and beaten for his outspoken commitment to abortion rights. He talks about the way things were for women in the 1950s and why we must never go back. If you are looking for a condensed reading on the topic of abortion and women's rights, you can't go wrong in this purchase.

Format: Paperback
Excellent little collection of articles that outlines not only why abortion should be legal and accessible, but also details the history of the fight for this right in both the US and Canada. The interview with Dr. Henry Morgentaler who helped spearhead this fight in Canada is touching and exciting. He explains how he just could no longer face turning women in need away, and then, how no Roman Catholic jury could be found that would convict him of breaking the law! José Pérez' answer to an anti-choice reader convincingly establishes the framework, not of women fighting ignorant men, but of social forces battling each other over very different futures for humanity. And he even includes an answer to the "overpopulation/underpopulation" red herring.
