Best-selling Author Randy Alcorn Helps Readers Root Their Beliefs about Abortion in Reality
Abortion is a hot topic, ranking number one among issues people feel strongly about. Abortion is America's most frequently performed surgery on women, with approximately 1.37 million reported abortions in the U.S. each year. Everyone is affected by abortion, including Christians. (Those calling themselves Protestant or Catholic account for two-thirds of U.S. abortions; those calling themselves "born again" account for 18%.)
Finally, a book has been written that presents the facts about abortion with grace and compassion, helping readers to root their beliefs in reality, not bumper-sticker slogans. Why Pro-Life? by Randy Alcorn is written mainly for fence-straddlers and professing pro-lifers, but also with pro-choicers in mind. Why Pro-Life? addresses the questions central to the abortion debate in a concise, straightforward, and non-abrasive manner.
Although many people will bring to the book their assumptions and impressions about abortion, they will not be grounded in science and logic. Many are "pro-life" because their religious leaders say they should be; many are "pro-choice" because it is the position that saturates popular media, and it sounds so positive and tolerant. In Why Pro-Life?, Randy Alcorn encourages all readers to reevaluate their positions and base their beliefs on factual evidence.
