Editorial Reviews

Review

“The authors of Crow after Roe combine their considerable journalistic and legal skills to offer a state of the art review of the numerous ways that abortion access is under threat in the United States. All who are concerned about the challenges now facing abortion providers and patients alike should read this book.”—Carole Joffe, author, Dispatches From the Abortion Wars

“Crow After Roe is a must-read for anyone who cares about women’s rights. A comprehensive look at the never-ending war on women’s bodies, the book will shock and move you to action. Most importantly, though, Crow After Roe gives you hope and a roadmap for what we can do to change the current anti-woman tide.”—Jessica Valenti, feminist author and speaker, founder of Feministing.com and columnist at The Nation

Format: Paperback
I work in the reproductive health movement, so I did not expect this book to be a revelation. I monitor this work on a daily basis, so I assumed I had a very advanced understanding of the latest fights over reproductive health. Wow, was I wrong! The authors laid our in rich detail the minutia of the latest attacks on reproductive health and justice. They bring complex legal battles, arcane regulatory fights, and little known individual struggles into the limelight in a manner that is readily accessible to the general public and incredibly engaging. If one has any interest in one of the most high profile issues of our time, the politics of reproductive health, then Crow After Roe is a must read for your literary palette.

"Crow after Roe" has a lot of information on the nationwide drive to legislate legal abortion ineffective because of the lack of access. There is historical information and state-by-state information that points out how reproductive choice will soon be only available for the wealthy. I highly recommend the book. It is a must read if you care about the War on Women and necessary healthcare.

Robin Marty and Jessica Mason Pieklo do a great job of detailing the efforts to turn back Roe versus Wade bit by bit, state by state. As a matter of principle, I must disclose that Robin Marty is a friend. I was aware of the effort she put into this book with her co-author and I am well pleased with the result. Each chapter covers one issue and one state, giving you insight into the personalities and political realities of that state. Starting in Nebraska with the efforts to pass a 'fetal pain' bill in 2010. This chapter shows how subtle changes in Supreme Court opinions coupled with the specific aims and personalities of the anti-abortion movement came together to try to craft legislation that could challenge Roe. This legislation was also directed at a particular provider in Nebraska that was the only provider of late term abortions after the murder of Dr. George Tiller.

Each chapter tells the story of a particular kind of legislation in a particular state. We get to understand how the opponents of abortion in each of these states are seeking their own method to achieve the holy grail of overturning Roe versus Wade. The story proceeds in chronological order with chapter two covering Ohio's heartbeat ban bills, and three Wisconsin's effort to ban medication abortions and so forth. Although the chapters are brief (10 to 20 pages), they are enough to explain how we have gotten to a position where many states have making abortion inaccessible the number one priority of their legislatures.

The book does a great job of making complex issues understandable yet it gives a greater depth than one would get from the day to day reporting even for someone who follows these issues.

Crow After Row offers the most succinct and well-researched overview I've seen of the current state of women's reproductive rights. Everyone should be interested in learning more about the legislation that has cropped up in recent years, limiting healthcare options for many women. Crow After Row tells the story of the legislative and legal battles in theses states so well, it grips the reader like a suspense novel at times. Only this is the furthest thing from fiction.
