“Through an intelligent examination of the undeniable dissonance between the moral and political aspects of the debate, Angie Young joins the ranks of those that triumphantly depolarize abortion in a heavily accessible fashion. And The Coat Hanger Project deserves much recognition.” -The Yale Herald, 11/6/09
