This book discusses abortion in a non-Western, non-Christian context - in Thailand, where over 300, 000 illegal abortions are performed each year by a variety of methods. The book, based on extensive original research in the field, examines a wide range of issues, including stories of the real-life dilemmas facing women, popular representations of abortion in the media, the history of the debate in Thailand and its links to politics. Overall, the work highlights the voices of women and their subjective experiences and perceptions of abortion, and places these 'women's stories' in an analysis of broader socio-political gender and power relations that structure sexuality and women's reproductive health decisions.into the worldviews and social circumstances of activists on both sides of the abortion debate. ... and a number of academic papers and edited volumes which offer smor- gasbord essays from a variety of countries, cultures ... an outline of the situation regarding illegal abortion in Thailand within the context of the widespread Thai family planning programme and reviews the current Thai studies of abortion.
