Review of Dangerous Pregnancies: Mothers, Disabilities, and Abortion in Modern America by Leslie J. Reagan. Dangerous Pregnancies examines how rubella, also known as German measles was discovered; how responses to rubella, and fears of it, resonated in the efforts to make abortion legal and accessible in the United States; how class, race, and privilege all played roles in abortion access; how disability activism and eugenics were mobilized to promote vaccinations and abortions; how vaccines and vaccination programs got adopted; and how these all issues link.
