WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

For many women around the world, the choice of when to marry, or have sex, or when and how many children she will have is outside her control.

In journalist Michelle Goldberg’s new book, The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power, and the Future of the World, giving women the freedom to control and protect their bodies allows a better chance to stop the spread of AIDS, create economic opportunity and build more stable democracies.

WMNF spoke with Goldberg last week about her book. In her book, she writes about an "intensified version of American style abortion politics coming to Latin America.”

We’ll hear more from her later this week on the Evening News.
