About the Author
LAUREN RANKIN is a writer, speaker, and expert on abortion rights in the United States. Her work has been featured in The Washington Post, The Cut, Fast Company, Teen Vogue, Refinery29, NBC News, and many other publications. She spent six years as an abortion clinic escort in northern New Jersey and is a board member of A is For, a reproductive rights advocacy organization. She lives in Longmont, Colorado with her family.
Bodies on the Line is an exciting history of clinic escorting. The people who do this work have helped shape access to abortion in America. While I wish this work and such a book were not needed, everyone needs to know this story and why it matters. --Dr. Jen Gunter, New York Times bestselling author of The Vagina Bible

Lauren Rankin has written a testament to the humanity that is central to the procedure, and the act, of abortion. She has walked the walk, and shared with other dedicated clinic escorts the fear and the dehumanization, and the threats, that patients face every time they walk into a clinic to receive basic health care. Here, directly from the front lines, are unique and untold stories that broaden our understanding of what it takes today for people to get the care they deserve, what we stand to lose when they can't, and what we need to do if we're to see our right to bodily autonomy fully realized. Bodies on the Line is an essential read for this moment of crisis. --Martha Plimpton, actor, activist, and cofounder of A is For
