Ambitious in method and scope, Trust Women skillfully interweaves political analysis, sociology, ancient and modern philosophy, Christian tradition, and medical history and grounds its analysis in the reality of women’s lives and their decisions about sexuality, abortion, and child-bearing. It offers a powerful re-imagining of the moral contours of pre-natal life, suggesting we recognize pregnancy as a time when a woman must assent, again and again, to an ethical relationship with the prenate.
