What Readers Say about Unplanned Choices
Couldnít put it down.
Incredible. A historical novel that outlines the never-spoken-aboutsexual revolution and restrictions of womenís reproductive rights. The book was so realistic, the characters the same. Easy to get to know them. Iwanted to read more and more since I too grew up in that era. By Lou October 5, 2019.
Unplanned Choices Explores Sexuality, Religion, Abortion and Culture in a Stimulating, Gripping Manner
Unplanned Choices explores sexuality, religion, abortion, and culture in a stimulating, gripping manner.Unplanned Choices is a gripping book. I read it whenever I could until it ended. I want more from it, and I want more of it. By Robert J. Anderson on December 1, 2013.
I could not put it down it left such an impression.
I had to reread it again. I encourage everyone to read to see how far we have come with our rights as women. Please don't let them take it away from us. I was impressed that a man could write so openly and honestly with such insight on the issue of abortion. I will definitely put Mr. Hopkins books on my reading list.

It's a page turner from page 1.
I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put downÖ The story linewas fascinating and the relationship it has to our present political climate is frightening. Every congressman and senator should read it along with every justice sitting on the Supreme Court. The thought that Roe v. Wade is even a matter for discussion let alone reversal is archaic and barbaric. They need to read this book for an accounting of what could happen if a woman's right to choose is taken away. I loved the courageous spirit of the women (and men) in this book. I think that style lends itself to a fast read and one that keeps you on your toes. It is now making its way around our office. I will definitely purchase this writerís second book. By a verified Amazon Customer on January 12, 2016
Because its subject is one that needs more attention
I applaud this author for taking on this difficult subject. Young people face these issues more than we could ever think, and there is very little guidance regarding all the various outcomes of these decisions. By Norma on September 7, 2015.
I can relate to this book, as a young teenager and young adult in this era when abortion was illegal.
The book shows the doubt of a young woman back in the 60's who did not have a lot of choices in having to deal with a unplanned pregnancy. They had nowhere to turn except to find someone to help in their turmoil who did not have the skills of a professional physician. Some paid with their life as so well portrayed in this book.

Read this book for a wonderful perspective of a time gone bye but still relevant ...
While reading Unplanned Choices I was transported to my youth and the era of secret relationships. Many memories of the pressure of feeling guilty about natural impulses were resurrected. The characters are clearly defined and draw the reader into the story with enough tension to hold interest. Read this book for a wonderful perspective of a time gone bye but still relevant to todayís social, political, and psychological issues. By Amazon Customer on June 11, 2016
Compelling and Informative
I recently experienced the pleasure of reading Frank Hopkins first book "unplanned choices ".it proved to be quite provocative, a real "page turner," always educating while inspiring serious thought. Hopkins probes abortion through the lens of Catholicism, re-introducing us to Margaret Sanger an early feminist, women's rights activist and nurse who coined the term "birth control," ultimately opening the first clinic in the United States. Additionally, he explores civil liberties and the Vietnam War. The narrative flows developing the characters while analyzing their choices. I would highly recommend this book.
