Why Knocked Up? Summary

Why Knocked Up? The Paradox of Sex, Magical Thinking, and Accidental Pregnancy in This Age of Contraception. The United States? birth rates are at record lows, yet our rates of accidental pregnancy are still sky high?1 out of 2-- is unplanned, unwanted. Peeling back the layers of conflict, denial, hope, dreams, and myths about pregnancy, this provocative book unravels the paradox of why we have so much Knocked Up pregnancy even though contraceptives are readily available. Dr. Cassell illustrates how magical thinking about sex and our culture's quirky sexual norms--combined with the far-right's efforts to block contraception, abortion, and sex education escalates the crisis. She uniquely describes the Knocked Up Paradox as a Black Elephant--a cross between a ?black swan? (an unexpected event with huge complications) and the ?elephant in the room? (a problem no one wants to admit is there). She delivers a powerful argument as to why unwanted pregnancy merits our concern even if we aren't directly involved: we all pay a high price dealing with the complex tangle of personal dilemmas and the domino effect on families it creates. Cassell assures us that reducing Knocked Up pregnancies isn't a hopeless challenge and endorses a range of effective and edgy resolutions.

What is audiobook and how does it work?
Audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions. You can listen to audiobooks on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car entertainment system.

An electronic book, also known as an e-book or eBook, is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as "an electronic version of a printed book",some e-books exist without a printed equivalent.
E-books can be read on dedicated e-reader devices, but also on any computer device that features a controllable viewing screen, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
