And That Was That: An Abortion Memoir
The common experiences of unwanted pregnancies, infertility, miscarriage, motherhood, and abortion-what if we just told the truth, without apology? These brief and forthright recollections from a woman who navigated her reproductive life in the USA, before and after Roe v. Wade, resist introspection. The experiences speak for themselves and serve as a warning to younger women: You don't want to go back. The author's experiences were not unusual, but perhaps her honesty is. She always understood the connection between a woman's bodily autonomy and her freedom, not to mention her safety. She did not doubt her ability to make her own decisions. She does not apologize for them now. What if we all just told the truth?
