The Unwanted Pregnancy: Descriptions of the Complexities of Abortion by Canadian Writers
 Gault, Cinda
2022 1-4955-1019-0 184 pages
"Writers may or may not pay attention to the politics of abortion in their times. Nevertheless, a number of Canadian writers have demonstrated a willingness to mine the rich and dramatic cultural associations attached to this controversial procedure for use in their fictional stories. ...An understanding of a given abortion in fiction depends on the writer's construction of value in the story, artistic treatment of this cultural sign and the values a reader brings to the story. While culture is a set of beliefs and practices that circulate among many people, fiction can be a tool by which culture is reworked and reflected by an individual writer for readers to understand life around them potentially in a new way." -from the Author's "Introduction"
