Produced in consultation with several reproductive rights activists,
Defending Reproductive Rights offers a comprehensive look at the attack
on reproductive freedoms by the US political Right. By providing a wealth
of facts, analyses, and resources Defending Reproductive Rights helps
activists, organizers, health care providers, and others protect reproductive
This resource helps you understand many aspects of the Right's attack
on reproductive freedoms, including:
- Barriers to Reproductive Services: The Right's efforts to curtail
women's reproductive rights have resulted in barriers to access for
women seeking reproductive health services. Defending Reproductive
Rights offers a detailed analysis of these barriers, which include
provider shortages, economic barriers, and restrictions on contraception.
- Abortion: Already demonized and threatened by anti-abortion activists,
Abortion rights activists now actually fear for their safety. What
is the make-up of the anti-abortion movement? How does the anti-abortion
movement relate to the larger attack on reproductive rights? Defending
Reproductive Rights carefully answers these questions and many more.
- Race, Poverty and Reproductive Rights: In the larger sphere of reproductive
rights-the right to conceive, bear, and raise children-"pro-life" strategists
apply a double standard based on race and class. Defending Reproductive
Rights looks at the rationale and application of this double standard.
- Reproductive Abuses and Population Control: Defending Reproductive
Rights also looks at where the Right stands on several other reproductive
rights issues, including forced sterilization, forced contraception,
and population control.
Along with primary and secondary source materials and valuable article
reprints, Defending Reproductive Rights contains directories of both
Right-wing groups opposed to reproductive rights and progressive organizations
working to defend them.
"Very impressive. Defending Reproductive Rights
is something that every pro-choice organizer should have."
