Why I Am an Abortion Doctor
In America's highly emotional debate on abortion, pro-life and pro-choice advocates have had their say. But the public remains dangerously uninformed about what actually goes on inside an abortion clinic, and even fewer would understand why a doctor would specialise in providing this service. In this candid account, Dr Suzanne T. Poppema shares intimate details about her own life and work in an effort to promote better understanding of the reality of abortion and the violent forces that threaten a woman's right to choose. She offers readers a view from the clinic operating room as well as valuable information on the abortion pill known as RU 486, for which her clinic has served as an FDA test site. This is a must read not only for every woman but also for anyone who has ever felt strongly about either side of the abortion question.
