Editorial Reviews Review

"Women's reproductive rights are under the greatest threat we've faced in the past thirty years," writes Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In The War on Choice, Feldt describes the right-wing campaign to end reproductive choice and warns women who value reproductive rights that "zealous, noisy, persistent extremists" and "arrogant" politicians are eager and able to return women to "the stifling culture of the 1950s" when abortion was illegal and sometimes fatal. Feldt--who has come a long way since she got pregnant at 15 and married her high school boyfriend because she saw no other option--presents an disturbing array of anti-choice and, indeed, anti-women quotes and activities from right-wing politicians, legislators, and activists. Her aim is to "open our eyes and mouths" and teach readers how reproductive rights are being chipped away and will ultimately be chopped down if action isn't taken. She presents convincing arguments that not only are legal abortions threatened, but also the rights to contraception and pregnancy-prevention education. She offers dozens of specific actions that women can take to mobilize pro-choice. Recommended both for women who remember life before reproductive freedom and younger women who take this freedom for granted. -- Joan Price

From Publishers Weekly

The right wing is eroding women's reproductive rights, and America's pro-choice majority must sound the battle cry, writes Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in this provocative work. The "war" goes beyond abortion, Feldt claims, to encompass "the right to have full access to family planning information, facilities, and products, the right to have children or not, sex education for young people that goes beyond the abstinence-only education being promoted by the right wing, and the right to medically accurate information." Feldt assumes her readers are pro-choice (she says it's necessary to "speak to the choir"), and for them, this book reveals how doctors are giving ideology-based information to patients, the rights of fetuses are being elevated and U.S.-funded organizations abroad are forbidden to teach family planning. Feldt's angry and personal tone, coupled with her liberal quoting of conservative sound bites (e.g., "There is no way to have premarital sex without hurting someone") makes for thought-provoking, challenging reading. She excels when giving concrete plans for how individuals can activate change, but her strong opinions leave little room for disagreement. For example, pro-choicers who support the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (aka the Laci Peterson Law) could feel alienated by some of Feldt's assertions. Oversimplifications and unsupported statements also mar the work. This book isn't for those on the fence about choice, and it definitely won't convince conservatives. However, it's an excellent tool for staunch supporters of reproductive rights; it will rouse readers to fight for change.
