    Description

    This is a no-holds-barred response to the liberal and conservative retreat from an assertive, activist, and socially transformative civil rights agenda of recent years - using a Black feminist lens and the issue of the impact of recent legislation, social policy, and welfare "reform" on Black women's - especially poor Black women's - control over their bodies' autonomy and their freedom to bear and raise children with respect and dignity in a society whose White mainstream is determined to demonize, even criminalize their lives. It gives its listeners a cogent legal and historical argument for a radically new, and socially transformative, definition of "liberty" and "equality" for the American polity from a Black feminist perspective.

    Must-read for antiracism education

    While some of this feels a bit outdated, overall this book is stellar and so important. I honestly was entirely oblivious to reproductive rights along with its racial ramifications and history aside from abortion. So glad a group of fellow birth workers decided to read it together as book club! A must read if you want to do antiracism work and/or are a birth worker.

    Terribly sad but very informative. Highly recommend.

    This book was a very illuminating inside view of the travesties of the birth control industry on black women’s reproductive rights. I already knew that Puerto Rican women had been the first to be experimented on with the pill. There is so much here that I didn’t realize. I highly recommend reading this. I have more distrust for the birth control industry that ever before!

    Mislabeled

    This book's title is misleading. It should have been labeled a "Black" Feminist's propaganda on birth control. The author clearly adopts a racial alter in an attempt to garner attention. This book only attempts to address the grievances of females and only briefly mentions the suffering of black men when she finds it convenient to do so to further the agenda of female suffering. Said attempt at playing race card.
