Nominated for theLos Angeles TimesBook Prize,Articles of Faithis a powerful exploration of one of the most divisive issues in our recent political history, and the only book to portray the passion of both sides of the abortion conflict.Drawing from more than five hundred interviews as well as previously unseen archival material, Cynthia Gorney has written a compelling narrative that explores the years betweenRoev.Wade(1973) andWilliam L. Websterv.Reproductive Health Services(1989), the first case to challenge the Roe decision before an anti-Roecourt.Meet Judith Widdicombe, the registered nurse who runs the abortion underground in 1960s St. Louis and then the first legal clinic afterRoev.Wade.And meet Samuel Lee, a young pacifist and would-be seminarian whose provocative abortion bill becomes the centerpiece ofWilliam L. Websterv.Reproductive Health Services.The Supreme Court case brings the two advocates head-to-head.
