Reviews of two books about reproductive rights.
These two books about reproductive politics present contrasting situations. Health Policy in a Time of Crisis is focused, detailing how women are able to access publicly funded abortion in Catalunya [the region in Spain seeking its independence]. Politics, however, impinges on that story as well see.
On the other hand, How All Politics Became Reproductive Politics is broad, connecting reproductive rights issues to a range of other hot button politics in the United States today. These contemporary accounts discuss reproductive politics in a time of austerity and the intervention of rightwing politicians.
