The United States and Ireland are not the only places where the abortion rights debate currently exists. This book represents the collaboration of three established scholars (two political scientists and one lawyer) to document and analyze the abortion saga in Canada from the legalization of therapeutic abortions in 1969 to the debates over new legislation in 1990. Through the integration of political, legislative, and constitutional dimensions of the issue, this work examines the evolution of abortion policy in Canada.
"It is a powerful book that not only details the history of the issue in the Dominion, but also lends insight into key differences between Canada and the United states."--Contemporary Sociology"The Politics of Abortion provides a pithy introduction to the abortion debate in Canada."--Women & Politics
