Monica Migliorino Miller is a true pro-life hero who puts her belief in the sanctity of life into action. Much like William Wilberforce's crusade to end slavery in England and Martin Luther King Jr. in his fight against segregation in the U.S., Monica performed acts of heroic courage to save lives--and give dignity to those she could not save.
But don't think for a moment that this is a dry recounting of the history of the abortion wars. It's a poignant and very readable narrative packed with emotional highs and lows. It will bring tears to your eyes numerous times (at least it did for me), but also make you want to stand up and cheer for Monica and others whose stories she beautifully tells.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. God bless you, Monica Migliorino Miller!
Dr. Miller's distinguished career as a pro-life activist spans from 1976 to 1994, and her book Abandoned is essentially her memoirs covering her work primarily in the Chicago/Milwaukee area during that time. Her post graduate education and background as a college professor is quite evident in the way she compiled her research and arranged her material. But even beyond that, Dr. Miller can just FLAT OUT WRITE! Her syntax and writing style is superb. Not only did Dr. Miller accurately give an account of the events she was involved in, but she wrote her book in such a way that holds her readers' attention as they glide through the pages.
Abandoned reads like a Tom Clancy novel, as Dr. Miller so brilliantly captured the drama of the events that she wrote about. Whether it was her interaction with the women that she sidewalk counseled, the police, the judges and lawyers, her jail mates, or her pro-life comrades while retrieving dead babies at the abortion mill dumpsters or planning rescues, Dr.Read more ›
The Author reveals much of the inner turmoil experienced when a culture, and especially the legal system, embraces the
so-called "right to choose" over higher values like the right to life.
The book includes a section of graphic color photos that depict the reality of what has been and is going on right now.
Miller always advocated non-violence as a demonstration of her response to Christs love and sacrifice.
There are many successes described, especially about "Peaches" baby, that thrill my heart.
Then there is the total blindness of a unhinged Police State that replicates the mind set of the Nazi
police that blindly follows "the law" because it is "my job"; and the prosecutor/Judicial system
that always acts to protect itself at the expense of true justice for "the least of these".
battle against abortion...the author is truly a modern day hero!! A MUST read!!
