"Practical and realistic,
yet free of moral compromise. . . Making Abortion Rare
will accomplish what its title claims--and much more . . . .
-- Rev. Paul Marx,
Founder of Human Life International
Making Abortion Rare
(and we mean very rare) has inspired a whole new direction
for many pro-life activists. Many national, state, and local
pro-life groups are now shifting gears to use the strategies outlined
in this book.
Now, you can get it get it here
Major organizations like Focus on the Family, Human Life International,
Christian Coalition, and the Conservative Book Club have offered
Making Abortion Rare
as a select or highly recommended book to their supporters.
The reviewer for the Christian Booksellers Association describes
it as "fascinating and convincing . . .
the 'can't miss' book of the next few years."
That's actually faint praise compared to comments by these pro-life
- "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
- "This is exactly what women who have had abortions have
been wanting to hear . . . I pray that this book will be widely
read. It provides us with the
road map to a kinder and gentler pro-life movement, one that
will achieve far more, far more quickly, than we have ever achieved
in the past."--Nancyjo Mann, Founder, Women Exploited
- "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 . . . From this point on, the abortion debate
will never be the same."--Mark Crutcher, Pres.,
- Reardon's 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
- "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,
Family Research Council
What's all the fuss about? Finally we have a realistic strategy
for truly bringing an end to abortion in America.
Best of all, this approach doesn't stop with shutting down dangerous
abortion mills. It will also work against illegal abortionists,
self-abortion promoters, and the onslaught of abortion drugs like
This approach doesn't
rely on politics . . .
but it will transform the
politics of abortion.
It doesn't rely on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade.
But, in the end, it will help to ensure that too will happen.
It doesn't rely on a constitutional amendment. But it will pave
the way for a Human Life Amendment after abortion has been
In brief, Making Abortion Rare,
is the first and only pro-life strategy that dovetails all aspects
of pro-life work--pastoral, political, educational, and service--into
one winning combination.
It shows why and how we can:
- convince the public that abortion hurts women far more than
it helps them;
- require a simple screening process that will prevent 70%
of all abortions;
- use understanding and compassion to promote more post-abortion
- reawaken the "mushy middle's" concern for unborn babies
by properly elevating their concern for the mothers of
- break the silence about abortion in our churches;
- make abortionists fully liable for all of the physical,
psychological, and social suffering caused by abortion.
- and much more....
This is the key to our
short-term victory . . .
When abortionists are finally held properly liable for abortion
injuries, their clinics will close--because
abortion is inherently dangerous to women . . . and the abortionists
But this book is also a blueprint for
our long-term victory. It shows
how we can create a society where abortion is not only illegal,
but it is also unthinkable.
A society where no woman would want an abortion any more than she
would want lung cancer. A society where no loving parent or boyfriend
would be so foolish as to encourage a young girl to have an abortion
because they will know that it will destroy her, not help her.
This plan is not difficult, expensive, or hard. Instead, as one
reviewer said, it is a "lesson in cultural
judo" that turns the momentum
of concern for women's rights to our advantage.
The Elliot Institute is on the forefront
of carrying out this pro-woman/pro-life strategy. Since 1988,
we have been "behind the scenes" serving, advising, and helping
pro-life groups around the country to develop and implement this
