Summary
Ruth Stoops is pregnant, confused and in trouble with the law for the umpteenth time. But it doesn't stop there. She soon becomes the unwitting object of a wacky tug-of-war that erupts when pro-lifers square off with pro-choicers and everyone goes to ridiculous extremes trying to claim her as a national symbol for their cause
