Fifteen top books to read about the abortion debate

At The Oprah Magazine Michelle Darrisaw tagged fifteen books to read about the abortion debate. One title on the list:
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan

Nathaniel Hawthorne's A Scarlet Letter or The Handmaid's Tale may come to mind when reading Hillary Jordan's sci-fi novel. A young girl and a married preacher have an affair that results in an unwanted pregnancy. After aborting the child, the woman's punishment is that her body is tinted crimson for 16 years, rather than donning the scarlet red letter of Hawthorne's classic historical fiction book.
