Book Details

Targets of Hatred charts the development of the anti-abortion movement in North America. Beginning in the years preceding the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion, the book examines the roles played by the Catholic Church, Fundamentalist Protestants, and Republican and Democratic parties, and assesses points of overlap and divergence. The voices of more than 190 providers in the United States and Canada--clinic owners, doctors, nurses, technicians, and their families--give readers an in-depth look at what it means to work in a field in which arson, bombings, harassment, and killing are routine. Filled with dramatic, eye-witness accounts of anti-abortion terrorism, the book demonstrates law enforcement's failure to stem the violence and is a call to arms for concerned individuals.

In The News

“..a basic reference work for anyone interested in the abortion debate.” —About.com (www.about.com)

“...a piercing wake-up call and useful reference for any women's rights activist of civil libertarian.” —Publishers Weekly

“For the first time, there is a chronology of anti-abortion violence. The book also provides in great detail and for the first time a Who's Who and What's What in the anti-abortion movement...but its most important contribution...is the voices of doctors, clinic workers, technicians, clinic owners and their families bearing witness to their day-to-day heroism...” —Women's Review of Books
