About Abortion is an exploration and critique of abortion regulation in the early 21st century; it is about the relation between culture and law, the regulation of women’s lives, the significance of fetal imagery in American culture and American law, and the meaning of embryonic or fetal demise to pregnant women.

Carol Sanger is the Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law at Columbia University. She is currently a Visiting Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford.
