Abortion is one of the most persistently debated issues in American culture and politics today. The artists included in this volume editorialize on the morality of abortion, whether abortion rights should be protected or restricted, and whether protestors should target abortion providers. Cartoons by Ann Telnaes, Chuck Asay, and Bruce Beattie are discussed in this provocative collection.
"Editor Mary Williams presents a representative and diverse collection of cartoons with commentary on a range of themes in this engaging series aimed at students."

"Humor is a powerful weapon for opening up discussion, and the Opposing Viewpoints series has always included small cartoons that add wry perspectives. Lots of detailed, serious commentary frames the cartoons, and each volume begins with a long introduction that includes a history of the debate as well as a summary of court decisions and current viewpoints."
