AFTER ROE by Mary Ziegler

July 19, 2015

Mary Ziegler spoke about her book, After Roe, at Politics & Prose on Sunday, July 19, 2015.

Today the abortion debate is either/or: pro-life or pro-choice. But as Ziegler, Stearns Weaver Miller Professor of Law at Florida State, reminds us, positions were not always this polarized. Drawing on more than a hundred interviews with people closely involved in the fight over legalizing abortion in the 1960s and ‘70s, Ziegler takes us back to the first years after the Roe decision, presenting a wide range of arguments and perspectives surrounding the issue—which was not viewed solely in terms of a woman’s right to choose. Rather, activists of all stripes considered race and class as well as gender.
