Summary

"As a husband and as a father of a daughter, I am moved by Sarah Weddington's eloquent reminder of what Roe truly meansthat our most private decisions can be made behind the closed doors of our homes, with our families, and in private conversations with our hearts."Bill Clinton "A milestone. . . . Here she recounts with clarity and fervor the remarkable story of how she, her husband and a few other lawyers, supported by a handful of doctors and pro-choice advocates, researched and prepared briefs invoking the 'right of privacy' defense as a main argument to challenge the Texas anti-abortion law." Publishers Weekly On the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, women's reproductive freedom is just as contested as it was before abortion was made legal. Adding a new chapter to her celebrated book about the story behind that great legal challenge, Sarah Weddington brings up-to-date the status of choice and constitutional law. Sarah Weddingtonis an attorney and lecturer from Austin, Texas. She became a key figure in the reproductive rights movement when at the age of twenty-seven she successfully argued Roe v. Wade, the landmark court case that gave American women the right to abortion. She has served in the Texas House of Representatives and was a White House advisor to President Jimmy Carter. Weddington is currently a professor of law and women's studies and travels around the country lecturing on leadership and women's issues.
