The year is 2021 and abortion is illegal in the United States when a young unidentified female is found dead from an alleged “termination” in an abandoned tenement. The girl is identified as the daughter of a conservative right wing Senator which sets the opening premise in Overturned. Overturned takes an extremely controversial issue and wraps it in fiction allowing characters to voice their opinions within the safety and confines of the writers imagination. The novel attempts to answer the question, “What if” and finds that we should be very careful what “we ask for” as we may actually get it. Overturned is a political thriller that combines the business of politics, social reform and conspiracy into a story that brings us full circle on the issue of reproductive rights and those we love. Overturned was written in the early 2000's when the balance of the Supreme Court was in jeopardy in the early 1990's. Never did the author imagine the novel would be the foretelling of our future. Overturned revisits the historical facts of the past and tells the story of a fictional future that has now become our reality. Outlawing abortion does not protect life but increases the casualties and will cause emotional trauma, and grief for many.
