(p.1) Introduction
Abortion After Roe

Johanna Schoen

University of North Carolina Press

The introduction briefly chronicles women’s reproductive experiences prior to the legalization of abortion and situates the legalization of abortion into the context of the emerging women’s health movement. It offers a brief overview of the state-by-state legalization of abortion and of the US Supreme Court decisions that followed the 1973 Roe v Wade decision. It concludes with a discussion of the challenges of writing the history of a medical procedure as stigmatized and politicized as legal abortion.

Keywords:   Illegal abortion, Roe v. Wade, Women’s Health Movement, Abortion stigma, Undue burden
