Book Description

Ranging from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the 1980s, this book focusses on the evolution of the law and medical practice of abortion in England. Dr Keown considers the performance of abortion by doctors, and the influence the medical profession had on the restriction of the law in the nineteenth century and on its relaxation in the twentieth.
