"This timely collection reminds us that access to abortion services remains deeply connected to international politics of health, mobility, and citizenship. It raises important questions about claims that women's choices need to be monitored to ensure global security. A must-read for anyone interested in medical tourism or women's inequality."

"A significant contribution to the comparative literature on abortion, Abortion across Borders provides a clear-eyed and sobering exposition of the relationship between the many laws, policies, and norms that govern access to abortion and the consequently burdensome travel that women must undertake with troubling regularity."

"Sethna and Davis's new book shines a light on the outcomes of opponents' strategies of making it difficult or impossible for women to avail themselves of their rights in Britain, Ireland (after 2018), Australia, and the United States. Abortion across Borders adds a necessary and cutting-edge piece of scholarship to the library of global reproductive rights work."

"Abortion across Borders is a groundbreaking and timely collection that sheds new light on travel for abortion services in a range of geographical contexts including North America, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The collection will appeal to scholars interested in the history of reproductive health and activism and is certain to remain the definitive collection on this topic for a long time to come."

"[Abortion across Borders] is a great example of interdisciplinary scholarship: the authors comprise several historians, a geographer, a sociologist, a psychologist, a lawyer and an architect. There is also a fair amount of politics in the book. This makes for varied approaches to each chapter, most of which focus on one country."

"[Abortion across Borders] is a rich volume that offers new and exciting analyses."
