Anthologies about Abortion and Homosexuality?
February 15, 2012 4:45 PM Subscribe
Does anyone know of any good anthologies featuring true stories, told in first or third-person, about (a) abortion in the United States before Roe vs. Wade, or (b) homosexuality in the United States in the 1960s and before, when it was very heavily stigmatized? I have some social conservatives in my family, along with some newly minted moderates and liberals, and I'd like to give the former some things to ponder, and the latter some talking points and fuel for their progressive opinions.

The It's So Personal
series on Andrew Sullivan's blog approximates the impact I'd hope such an anthology would have, as does this blog post
from a doctor dealing with the aftermath of an unsafe abortion... although I would prefer non-contemporary stories from before Roe vs. Wade.
