    1. This author manages to write an entire book on abortion without once mentioning fetal development or even the status of the unborn baby. You would think that abortion had nothing to do with babies at all, or that it kills anything. It's remarkable how much she was able to avoid the issue, as many pro-choicers do.Also, many of her facts were inaccurate. There are numerous studies attesting to the breast cancer/abortion risk, even very current ones – same thing with the connection of abortion wi [...]

    2. I never really studied any formal gender studies classes at high school so, as a result, never had the opportunity to cover some of these topics formally. Nonetheless, they are highly relevant and important, so I was really pleased to have the opportunity to read this book.In Reproductive Politics I felt I’d found a well-researched, well-presented title, covering a range of current topics, many of which are highly controversial. They are also issues that we are often reluctant to talk about, p [...]

    3. I'm preparing to teach a course at the University of Connecticut MPH Program this fall and had read good reviews of this book. I'm very glad that I purchased it and will be recommending it to my students this fall.It's a historical look at the politics of reproduction and includes great perspective on many of the ethical dilemmas and questions that seem to arise and change daily. Although it does have a lengthy bibliography, this is not a scientific textbook. It's an overview and an analysis of [...]

    4. This is an excellent book regardless of your politics on the issue. Although the author is a "Right to Choose" advocate, she does an extremely careful presentation of the history, philosophy and tactics of multiple sides on the issue. The book is especially good at defining the various legal actions taken on the subject and translating the acronyms and affective language that muddy the discourse. I would never have considered Susan B. Anthony as anti-abortion nor thought of ultrasound in the sea [...]

    5. Very informative and concise- takes you through a fairly comprehensive history of reproductive politics in the US to achieve better understanding of current events. Looks at almost every different modern part of reproductive politics; writing is neutral with slight nods towards the feminist side of things. Good statistics and comparisons, well-researched- definitely recommend if you want to educate yourself on on the full spectrum of reproductive politics in the USA. The sheer amount of legislat [...]

    6. A really good primer on the wide range of lenses one can study reproductive policy and debate, while remaining largely non-partisan.At times, the text felt a little redundant reading from start to finish, but I suspect this was so people could jump into any chapter and be given a clear foundation. Not an actual criticism of the book, but it would be wonderful to see an updated edition from OUP as many of the policies mentioned have undergone changes since this published and the market is hot for [...]

    7. Before going reading this book, I had just assumed that reproductive politics was just abortion and adoption, but it goes so much further than that. This book explains the topics that have had a part in our nation's history clearly and then presents them to you in an orderly fashion that makes it easy for the reader to understand. If anyone were to want to know about unbiased reproductive politics and the impacts that they have had in the past, present, and what impacts they may make in the futu [...]

    8. This is a highly informative work, exposing the politics of reproductive health policies in the US, and the resultant social impacts. An interesting and useful treatis on this fundamentally important topic. How can we hope to reach our developmental and societal zenith when we continue to objectify and legislate the sexual and reproductive boundaries of over 50% of our population, in ways that minimise and deprecate their existence as equal partners?

    9. Useful overview of reproductive politics, well-researched, neutral but feminist-informed tone. A great book to have on hand as a reference for anyone working in reproductive health policy, or anyone with questions about the sexual health debate.
