An engrossing new book by Jennifer Wright chronicles “The Life, Death and Resurrection of Old New York’s Most Fabulous, Fearless, and Infamous Abortionist“.

It’s a delightful, indecorous but disturbing story about the whole of American history:  Capitalism and class, feminism and feefom, and puritanical hypocrites who find their authority challenged.  A truly captivating tale of the most important woman you’ve never heard of.  A true page turner, and extremely relevant to our struggle today.
