Description
In 1971 (two years before the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to legalise abortion in the United States), Hoffman founded Choices, an abortion clinic in New York. As a medical provider, she pioneered 'patient power' encouraging women to participate in their own health care decisions. And going against even her own expectations for her life after fifty, she adopted a child and writes about her experience as a mother. Merle Hoffman has been on the front lines of the feminist movement, a fierce warrior in the battle for choice.

display_description "As a girl, Merle Hoffman knew she was destined for greatness--she just didn't know which stage she would act upon. Coming of age amidst the cries for reproductive freedom and the rise of modern feminism, Hoffman saw her chance to become a pioneer in an exciting new field: she would run one of the first abortion clinics in New York City. Hoffman went on to become one of the fiercest voices in the pro-choice movement, leading rallies in Bryant Park and marches down Fifth Avenue, debating Jerry Falwell on national television, and hosting a groundbreaking TV series called On the Issues. Throughout her years of campaigning, Hoffman's commitment to creating a place of safety and comfort for the tens of thousands of patients who have relied upon her clinic, CHOICES Women's Medical center, has made her a thorn in the side of the pro-life movement and an inspiration to her fellow feminists. Intimate Wars is the story of a warrior who never hesitated to enter battle and risk her life for the fundamental right for women to govern their own bodies"--
