(British Journal of Sexual Medicine, October 2010)
"This is a highly informative, well-referenced book, which covers the subject detail in a balanced, humane, sensitive and women centred way. The book is upbeat and positive about the alliance of abortion with sexual and reproductive health and the new prospects for leadership in abortion care resulting from this. This book is an essential read for those providing counselling and assessment for abortion care, as well as those providing abortion procedures."
