Book Review: “Willing and Unable: Doctors’ Constraints in Abortion Care”

July 19, 2010

Over at Our Bodies Our Blog, I have a review of Lori Freedman’s new book, “Willing and Unable: Doctors’ Constraints in Abortion Care.” I really enjoyed the book as it covered aspects of the provider equation of abortion access that I haven’t thought much about until reading it.

The topic of the book – the reasons why physicians who are not ideologically opposed to providing abortion and are trained to do so are not providing them in the course of their practice – ties in nicely to a recent article in the New York Times, “The New Abortion Providers,” if you read that in this Sunday’s magazine.

As a bit of local interest, the book is published by the larger workplace’s Vanderbilt University Press.
