The Anti-Abortion Campaign in England, 1966-1989, Hardback Book


This book comprises a history of the anti-abortion campaign in England, focusing on the period 1966-1989, which saw the highest concentration of anti-abortion activity during the twentieth century.

It examines the tactics deployed by campaigners in their efforts to overturn the 1967 Abortion Act.

Key themes include the influence of religion on attitudes towards sexuality and pregnancy; representations of women and the female body; and the varied, and often deeply contested, attitudes towards the status of the fetus articulated by both anti-abortion and pro-choice advocates during the years 1966-1989.
