A ground-breaking book detailing authentic first hand accounts by Irish women of their experiences of abortion.
This book is dedicated to the women who so bravely contributed their stories of abortion and to all women who experience crisis pregnancy.
The women in this book were approached, and contributed, through a variety of sources. For most of these women, the telling and placing of their story into the public domain was extremely difficult. Names and other identifying details have been changed to protect the women’s anonymity.
The stories are laid out chronologically, beginning with Marie’s harrowing account of her backstreet abortion in the '70s, and ending with Kate’s story, in 1999, thankfully legal and safe.
