Abortion in the United States: A Compilation of Federal and State Laws, 2nd ed.  by Tobe Liebert was recently reviewed by Sara Sampson in Law Library Journal!

Sampson writes: “This set provides a snapshot of the full text of all state (including the District of Columbia) abortion laws as they currently exist and some historical federal statutes. This includes the federal Hyde Amendment in its original (1976) and current (2011) forms. This is particularly helpful because, as provisions of appropriation acts, they do not appear in the U.S. Code. It also includes the vetoed Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1995. While this compilation is convenient for today’s users, it may be invaluable to future scholars.
