Life on the line by Faye Wattleton( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Committed to her own identity, Faye chose a very different path from her mother's. A nursing student at Ohio State University and later a graduate of Columbia University's midwifery program, Wattleton dedicated herself to healing - only to be stunned by the harsh realities of women's lives in America, especially the humiliation and danger inflicted on women by illegal abortions. She joined Planned Parenthood because it offered dignity and reproductive options to women, and she rose quickly to the top of the organization. During the fourteen years of her controversial leadership, Wattleton moved Planned Parenthood into the forefront of the movement to preserve and extend women's reproductive rights, standing up to an increasingly vocal and violent right-wing opposition. This battle - waged through our judicial, legislative, and social systems - is recounted with both clarity and passion in Life on the Line
