Katha Pollitt - Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights

Here's a book that will surely kick up heated commentary: Nation columnist Katha Pollitt, winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award for her poetry and two National Magazine awards for her essays and criticism, reclaims women's abortion rights, arguing in Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights that abortion must be seen as a common aspect of a woman's reproductive life—one in three American women terminate a pregnancy before menopause—and that in today's complex world it can be a source for social good.

Katha Pollitt is well known for her wit and her keen sense of both the ridiculous and the sublime. Her "Subject to Debate" column, which debuted in 1995 and which the Washington Post called "the best place to go for original thinking on the left," appears every other week in The Nation; it is frequently reprinted in newspapers across the country. In 2003, "Subject to Debate" won the National Magazine Award for Columns and Commentary. She is also a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute.
