This book is about Abby Johnson who was a director of a Planned Parenthood in Texas until she witnessed an ultrasound guided abortion and became pro-life.
There was both good and bad in this book for me. First off, without getting into too much of a discussion about abortion, I've been 'on the fence' about abortion for awhile now. When I started reading this book and read Abby's description of the abortion I felt sick to my stomach. It made me search myself and I 'fell of the fence' to the pro-life side.
I'm honestly very glad that Abby's story was in the media and she wrote this book. I think it's a story that needs to be told. In a country that tries to justify abortion by calling the babies that are killed, 'embryos' and 'clumps of cells' I'm glad that there are people out there who are affected by this and call it what it is, a baby's life ending.
Now, there were certain points in the book that I felt were too melodramatic. I realize that drama sells and maybe it's because I have never been on the front lines of the abortion fight, but the way Abby describes her first meeting with the Colilition for Life and those first few days with them seems overly dramatic to me. It took away from the story for me and seemed to drag a little bit.
Overall, this is an excellent book on a difficult topic that really needed to be told. Not all pro-lifers are the one's that scream out obscenities at the abortion clinics.
I recieved this book for free from the Tyndale Blog Network. I was not paid to give this review and all the opinions expressed are my own.
