Horn Book Review

This volume explores Americans' attitudes by using data from Gallup polls. The text covers the history of legalized abortion and subsequent limits to that decision. Although attempting a balanced picture, the writing and the poll data can oversimplify complex issues. Charts, graphs, and photographs illustrate the information. Reading list, websites.
