“Argue Abortion (and other reproductive topics) Like a Doc” is here to dispel all the nonsense that’s thrown out in arguments about reproductive health. It’s not designed for academics; it’s designed for the politician who claimed a woman could swallow a camera to check on a pregnancy. Or the auntie who said eating papaya was as effective as oral contraceptives. This is the book that helps regular people sound smarter when they argue their point about birth control, Plan B, and D&Cs. It has pictures, analogies, and extra question boxes that make you think about your own opinions.
To be clear, this book is not an argument for, or against, abortion rights. After all, everyone has seen enough of those. Instead, it’s an explanation of what happens in women’s bodies throughout the month (surprise – it’s ovulation and menstruation!), how contraceptives and emergency contraceptives work (not as abortifacients), and what the term abortion actually means in a medical sense. Written by a medical student and former EMT-B, this book will give you all the information you need to truly understand reproductive topics from a practical medical perspective, without boring you to death in the process.
