Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

McFarlane (political science, U. of New Mexico) and Meier (liberal arts and political science, Texas A&M U.) review American public policy and human fertility control, policies, and practices of the last 30 years in each of the 50 states. They argue that morality politics have helped make fertility control policies contentious and complex, concluding that current policies are inadequate for addressing unintended pregnancy and suggesting alternatives.
