Mary Ann Sorrentino is a longtime champion of reproductive rights in Rhode Island. As many people know, she was once excommunicated from the Catholic Church. In spite (or because) of such things, she continues to speak out, in part through her contributions to the Phoenix. This week, Johnette Rodriguez offers a review of Sorrentino's book, The A Word. Last month, Scott MacKay wrote about Sorrentino in the ProJo. While it's easy to take abortion rights, for example, Sorrentino offers a reminder that we do so at our own peril.
