Summary
No Choice begins by discussing the ways in which life before Roe will be mirrored in life after: the wealthy and privileged will still have access, low-income people will suffer disproportionately, and pregnancy will be heavily policed. Then, Andrews looks at the states and communities that have been affected by the erosion of abortion rights in the U.S., and tells the stories of those who are most at risk from this reversal of settled law. As the battle moves to state legislatures around the country, the book profiles the people who are working to ensure safe, legal access to this fundamental part of health care.
