Protecting the Right to Choose : From the former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America comes a politically impassioned, thought-provoking, and timely narrative about a woman's constitutional right to shape her own life. Catalyzed by a pre-Roe v. Wade abortion, which required the consent of the husband who left her and the approval of a hospital panel made up entirely of men, Kate Michelman - a seasoned lobbyist, skilled political strategist, and trusted advisor to some of the most powerful leaders in America - has since devoted her life to protecting the rights of women and children. As president of NARAL from 1985 to 2004, Michelman catapulted the organization to prominence as the nation's premier reproductive rights group, transforming the political debate and moving the question "Who decides?" to the mainstream. Now, in Protecting the Right to Choose, Michelman offers a from-the-front-lines historical perspective on the issue of choice, through the fascinating lens of her life and life's work.
