A Question of Choice is the incredible story of how a twenty-seven-year-old lawyer won Roe v. Wade, and what it means forty years later.

Today in the twenty-first century, women's reproductive freedom is just as contested as it was before abortion was made legal. Adding a new chapter to her celebrated book about the story behind that great legal challenge, Sarah Weddington brings up-to-date the status of choice and constitutional law.

"As a husband and as a father of a daughter, I am moved by Sarah Weddington's eloquent reminder of what Roe truly means—that our most private decisions can be made behind the closed doors of our homes, with our families, and in private conversations with our hearts." —Bill Clinton, former president of the United States

"A milestone. . . . Here she recounts with clarity and fervor the remarkable story of how she, her husband and a few other lawyers, supported by a handful of doctors and pro-choice advocates, researched and prepared briefs invoking the 'right of privacy' defense as a main argument to challenge the Texas anti-abortion law." —Publishers Weekly
