Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553382926, Paperback)"Women's reproductive rights are under the greatest threat we've faced in the past thirty years," writes Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In The War on Choice, Feldt describes the right-wing campaign to end reproductive choice and warns women who value reproductive rights that "zealous, noisy, persistent extremists" and "arrogant" politicians are eager and able to return women to "the stifling culture of the 1950s" when abortion was illegal and sometimes fatal. Feldt--who has come a long way since she got pregnant at 15 and married her high school boyfriend because she saw no other option--presents an disturbing array of anti-choice and, indeed, anti-women quotes and activities from right-wing politicians, legislators, and activists. Her aim is to "open our eyes and mouths" and teach readers how reproductive rights are being chipped away and will ultimately be chopped down if action isn't taken. She presents convincing arguments that not only are legal abortions threatened, but also the rights to contraception and pregnancy-prevention education. She offers dozens of specific actions that women can take to mobilize pro-choice. Recommended both for women who remember life before reproductive freedom and younger women who take this freedom for granted. -- Joan Price
