2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the social change brought about by Britain's 1967 Abortion Act. However the struggle for abortion rights is far from over. Judith Orr argues that it's time women had the right to control their fertility without practical, legal and ideological barriers. Combining analysis of media coverage, statistics, popular culture and social attitudes with powerful first-hand accounts of women's experiences she measures the Act's impact showing that full reproductive rights are yet to be won. The book highlights current debates over decriminalisation and argues for abortion provision fit for the 21st century.
