Advancing Reproductive Choice: Leading with Conviction and Compassion, A Memoir is a profound look back at Elizabeth S. Maguire's noble vocation of empowering women by showing them the path to freedom of choice. One of the countless unsung heroes who have devoted their lives to helping women and young girls exercise their fundamental human right in safely preventing and managing unwanted pregnancy, her memoir not only offers interest and information but also provides case studies and critical information on reproductive health. Similarly, it is an eye-opening discussion on the crucial role of organizations in spreading awareness and in participating in the ever-changing dynamics of sexual and reproductive health, which has now become gender-inclusive. Passion, empowerment, perseverance, and compassion are not just big words in this memoir but are strong guiding principles that have been put into action.

Advancing Reproductive Choice is truly an empowering memoir even for a man like me. The world needs more people like Elizabeth S. Maguire, whose unselfish devotion in leading the way for women, especially those in developing countries, have helped them find enlightenment on what is perhaps one of the most powerful and liberating choices they could make for the sake of their health and welfare. You cannot help but feel sympathetic and compassionate when Maguire narrates her eyewitness accounts of women suffering and risking their lives from unsafe abortions, all because they have not been properly oriented and have not received the proper care they deserve. This is a must-read not only for chronicling a life well-lived but also for its thought-provoking perspectives on sexual and reproductive health that concern all of us.
