The Politics of Fertility Control: Family Planning and Abortion Policies in the American States


A groundbreaking new book on American policy & human fertility control which reviews & analyzes policies & practices over the last thirty years in each of the fifty states. Arguing that morality politics has helped make fertility policies contentious & complex, McFarlane & Meier conclude that current policies are inadequate for addressing unintended pregnancies & even contribute to high abortion rates. The authors offer alternative public policy designed to be more effective in the future.
