Women are beset with many problems and one such is abortion. In a country like India where childbearing is regarded as a symbol of God's favour, abortion has a legal sanction. The author thrashes out the circumstances that push a woman to seek abortion and the self torture induced by the feeling of guilt as a result of such deliberation, including the social environment that accompanies the role of a man in the whole trauma.

A compendious work on the subject under three major divisions namely Political and Social Concerns, Feminist Theological Issues and Church and Women brings to the fore many vital issues. Beginning with the status of women in India, the topic takes us to political empowerment of women, economic self reliance and eco-feminism.
