Support for abortion rights has been deemed a central tenet of the feminist movement for decades. The assumption that there is an inextricable link between feminism and 'the right to choose' informs the basis of this work. Its main aim is to highlight the principles that inform feminist opposition to abortion, which first necessitates a discussion on the evolution of the feminist movement. This initial focus at the macro level sets the context for an exploration of feminist theory and practice at the micro level. Against the backdrop of Irish abortion policy, this book explores Irish feminist perspectives on both support for and opposition to abortion by providing cogent analyses of concepts such as oppression and 'false equality'. It demonstrates that the tendency to reduce the debate on abortion to the tension between the secular and the sacerdotal is no longer tenable. Therefore this book is of interest to those who seek to look beyond the limited analyses of abortion politics that fail to fully capture the dynamics of respective positions, which ultimately shut the door on any meaningful engagement on this important social issue.
