This timely audiobook provides context and perspective for the decades-long fight to protect a woman's right to choose. Faye Wattleton delivers the introduction in a calm yet passionate voice as she describes the activism that originally led to Roe v. Wade in 1973 and the many ways that the decision protecting a woman's right to an abortion was challenged over the last 50 years. The narration of the Court's actual opinions and dissents for the landmark cases by Ariel Blake and Imani Jane Powers provides the historic backdrop for Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which led to the 2022 Dobbs decision to overturn Roe after nearly 50 years. The importance of understanding how we got here is clear in the narrative. And--despite the sometimes overwhelming legalese of the opinions--the commitment to continued activism is obvious. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
