Abstract

Abortion has been a controversial topic in contemporary American politics. The modern debate can be traced back to the physician’s crusade against abortion in the 19th century. Horatio Storer launched the crusade to bring respect to the medical field in a time when doctors were not highly esteemed. This paper analyzes the motives and results of Storer’s campaign.
