Abortion: A Collective Story

Synopsis

Stories about abortion provide a rich ground for looking at the relationship between narrative, experience, and meaning because in many ways abortion has come to be a defining issue for American culture--one that touches on the value we attribute to human life, liberty, and freedom. Using personal stories and interviews, MariAnna seeks to show the contours of a vital and diverse collective story--a narrative that emphasizes the discursive dynamics at work in any account of the significance of abortion.
