Great information!

This book is fascinating! It’s a lot of information, and got a bit overwhelming for me at times, so I would just listen 1/2 hour at a time. Took a while to get through the book, but I am really happy I’m armed with so much information! Knowledge is Power! :)

Good information

I learned things I never knew about this issue. This is bigger than just pro-life or pro-choice, I think it’s helpful to know the entire legal history of reproductive rights.
