"Fascinating and convincing...
‘can't miss' book..."--Bookstore Journal
"This is exactly what women who have had abortions
have been wanting to hear. We want to feel understood. We want
to be accepted by those around us. David Reardon is faithfully and compassionately
reaching out to us: those who have achieved healing, those who still feel
oppressed by shame, and those who simply cannot confront their buried past.
More than that, he shows others how to do the same so together we can create
a less confrontational and more healing environment which is truly
both pro-woman and pro-life.... I pray that this book will be
widely read and reflected upon. It provides us with the road map to a
kinder and gentler pro-life movement, one which will achieve far more,
far more quickly, than we have ever achieved in the past."--Nancyjo
Mann, Founder, Women Exploited by Abortion
"David Reardon has shown a rare grasp of the
current dynamics of the abortion controversy as it is today.
His analysis and suggested pro-life strategy are right on the mark."--Jack
Willke, M.D., Pres., International Right to Life Federation
"Reardon is right on target. Under
the old rules of the abortion debate, where the rights of women and the
unborn were in opposition, there was no room for agreement. But Reardon
has changed the rules. . . . He offers us a solution which honors the beliefs
and desires and of the vast majority of Americans, whether pro-choice or
pro-life. From this point on, the abortion debate
will never be the same."--Mark Crutcher,
Author, Lime 5
"This book is a wake-up call to those who want
to make a difference. Anger and politics aside, the time is
at hand for understanding the pain of those who have experienced abortion."--Vincent
M. Rue, Ph.D., Co-Director, Institute for Pregnancy Loss
"Making Abortion Rare is a well written
carefully considered work. Some may be skeptical of this 'radical'
new perspective, but it is undeniably a compassionate one. That is why
this book simply must be read by people on all sides of this volatile issue--especially
by those who genuinely desire to both reduce abortion rates and advance
women's rights."--Vicki Thorn, Founder, Project
Rachel; Ex. Dir., National Office of Post-Abortion Reconciliation and Healing
"David Reardon writes with knowledge and insight...and
offers thoughtful and challenging ideas regarding the future direction
of the pro-life movement."--Thomas W. Strahan,
J.D., Rutherford Institute of Minnesota
"Making Abortion Rare is forward thinking
in its vision and recommendations, and rightfully reconnects
the pro- woman cause with the pro-life message.... The author bears a deep
commitment to and compassion for women"--Gracie
Hsu, Public Policy Analyst, Family Research Council
"Making Abortion Rare simply takes abortionists at their word—and
much to their detriment when legal abortions are not also safe abortions.
imaginative informed consent law can only be opposed by those who seek
to protect abortion profiteers at the expense of women."--Hon.
Robert G. Marshall, Virginia General Assembly
"Whether or not you agree with this book's specific legal, legislative
and political strategy, David Reardon's unique
perspective challenges the pro-life movement to never forget
that protecting the preborn child means protecting the child's mother."--Mrs.
Judie Brown, President, American Life League, Inc.
"Abortion advocates have built their case for abortion on an elaborate
system of misinformation.... Reardon's well-written analysis...is important
reading for those who want to end the plague of abortion."--Dr.
Wanda Franz, President, National Right to Life Committee
"Making Abortion Rare examines why the message 'abortion kills
babies' is not sufficient to resolve the abortion debate. Reardon argues
persuasively that we must use cultural momentum,
not fight it, to build a solution on awareness of the damage abortion does
to women. This is an important book, one that
deserves the attention of activists on both sides--plus all those in the
