Summary note
The United States may never make abortion completely illegal, but in many states, abortion is accessible in name only due to lack of clinics, expense, waiting periods or other issues. And if Roe v. Wade is overturned, those same states will likely make abortion illegal within their borders. The End of Roe v. Wade builds off of the 2013 book Crow After Roe, expanding and updating the original chapters detailing anti-abortion model legislation meant to challenge Roe v. Wade such as 20-week abortion bans, "heartbeat" bans, "feticide" charges and TRAP laws. The book will also includes additional chapters highlighting new threats to abortion rights since 2013, including D&E bans, "fetal endangerment" laws, the Trump Administration's unprecedented federal efforts to end access to abortion and contraception, and an analysis of Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt, the first major abortion rights decision since 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The End of Roe v. Wade also looks at the inevitable rise of self-induced abortion in a post-Roe landscape, detailing the next big battle over abortion in the U.S. -- those who chose to end pregnancies outside of the legal medical system against those who will prosecute them when and if they are caught. The end of Roe v. Wade may be just around the corner. This book tells how we got there, and what will happen next.
"The end of Roe v. Wade is an updated edition of Crow after Roe, previously published by Ig Publishing in 2013."--Title page verso.
