The End of Roe v. Wade
About the Book
The United States may never make abortion completely illegal, but in many states, abortion is accessible in name only due to lack of clinics, expense, extensive waiting periods, and other issues. And if Roe v. Wade is overturned, those same states will likely make abortion illegal within their borders.
The End of Roe v. Wade builds off the 2013 book Crow After Roe, expanding and updating information about the anti-abortion model legislation meant to challenge Roe v. Wade. The book also highlights right-wing's aggressive new threats to abortion rights since 2013, including the Trump Administration’s unprecedented federal efforts to end access to abortion and contraception. The End of Roe v. Wade also looks at the inevitable rise of self-induced abortion in a post-Roe landscape, detailing the next big battle over abortion in the U.S. – those who chose to end pregnancies outside of the legal medical system against those who will prosecute them when and if they are caught.
With a Republican president and a conservative Supreme Court, the end of Roe v. Wade may be just around the corner. This book tells how we got here, and what will happen next.
