Caring for the Unborn and Their Mothers
by Randy Alcorn
Publisher:Hendrickson from Alban Books
‘No issue is more divisive or troubling than abortion. Many believe that we have to choose between helping women and helping children. This book shows how critical it is that we help both. In a concise, non-abrasive manner, Randy Alcorn offers compassionate, factual answers to the central issues of the abortion debate.’
This quote from the back cover sums up the contents of this excellent book. In 120 pages Randy Acorn offers challenges to the misconceptions and arguments of the ‘pro-choice’ lobby and suggests alternative ways of thinking about the issues involved.
He tells the reader in the first chapter that he is not going to quote from the Bible in support of his arguments, making the book more accessible to non- Christians. However the chapter entitled ‘Can God forgive abortions?’, which is found near the end of the book, presents the gospel in a very compassionate way.
Why Pro-Life? presents the arguments against abortion very clearly while demonstrating real love and concern for the mother and her unborn child. I would be happy to give it to someone who was considering abortion, had had an abortion or to anyone who wanted to know more about the issues involved.
