When Henry Morgentaler, Canada's best-known abortion rights advocate, died in 2013, activists and scholars began to reassess the state of abortion in the country. In this volume, some of Canada's foremost researchers challenge current thinking about abortion by revealing the discrepancy between what Canadians believe the law to be after the 1988 Morgentaler decision and what people are experiencing on the ground. Showcasing new theoretical frameworks and approaches from law, history, medicine, women's studies, and political science, these timely essays reveal the diversity of abortion experiences across the country, past and present, and make a case for shifting the debate from abortion rights to reproductive justice.

Abortion is unique in that it ties together the perspectives of scholars in history, politics, and law, as opposed to other compilations that focus on works from one particular field, echoing the intersectionality of modern day reproductive justice framework. -- Megan Siu, Community Developer & Educational Specialist Centre, CPLEA * Canadian Law Library Review *

[...][i]n 2019 it is ever more evident that a broader concept of reproductive justice is one that encompasses not only our reproductive health but legal, social and economic justice as well. This book helps move us in that direction.

-- Amanda Le Rougetel * Herizons *
