Beyond Abortion: Roe v. Wade and the Battle for Privacy

Author: Mary Ziegler

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts , 2018, pp. 400

Mary Ziegler examines how Roe influenced a wide range of issues, including sexual liberty and the right to refuse medical treatment. The author explores a much wider range of political protest than simply abortion, and describes how social movements debated the meaning of privacy and struggled to use this concept to pursue political ends.
