Review

"Abandoned is a kind of shocking immersion into the depths of the American battle over abortion. Here is preserved up-close and in detail an important historical moment that reveals at once the commitment, the fears, the frustration and the hop of those who oppose abortion and the darkest truth about the practice of abortion itself. This book is unprecedented, provocative and will leave its mark on all who read it."
-Jill Stanek is a nurse, columnist, blogger, and the winner of the 2009 Life Prizes Award

From the Back Cover

Abandoned is a first-hand account of the Pro-Life movement from the front lines of the abortion battle. Inside, you'll discover: 

- Victories - and defeats - in sidewalk counseling
- Late-night rescues of the remains of aborted babies from abortion clinic dumpsters
- The daring story behind the disappearing abortion clinic ads along the Chicago El Line
- Sit-ins, arrests, and gripping conversations (and conversions) outside abortion clinics
- A chilling look at the inner-workings of abortion facilities
- A unique and poignant investigation into the tragedy of legalized abortion

Here is the provactive, disturbing, and essentially unknown saga of life and death, hope and despair in which two opposing worlds collide and play out one of the most important moral dramas of our time.

"Abandoned: The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars" is just that. If you think you know the history of pro-life activism since Roe v. Wade (I thought I knew) you must read this book to get a unique glimpse into the real story.

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!

I have read many books on abortion but never one like this. As a relative newcomer to the prolife arena, it was fascinating to realize the sacrifices and dedication of those who have been on this side of the argument from the beginning (and I mean FASCINATING as in : page-turner, lose-sleep, think-about-it-all-day kind of read!). The book was disturbing at times for me as a post-abortive woman (actually, disturbing most of the time because of that), yet the pure love of life that glistened through the author's words made it soothing as well. I learned so much...and it helped me to solidify my arguments--without using my Catholic faith to make them. The science and the pictures certainly speak for themselves. The courage of this author and the other pioneers was stunning. Monica, I wish that you or Edmund might have been outside of the Boston clinic on October 7, 1983 when I aborted the only child I would ever conceive. My baby might have had a chance to live his life if compassionate, generous people like you had been there to intervene. Thank you , Monica, for this treasure!

Having been a pro-life activist from 1984 to 1992, I have a very keen interest in collecting books that cover the History of pro-life activism or what is being more commonly referred to by pro-life and pro-abortion authors as the "abortion wars." As informative as most of these books that I have are, there is one feature that Abandoned has that these other books don't. Abandoned was written by a fellow pro-life activist and I find that to by very appealing. The author and I share a common bond. We both have had the experience of being arrested at an abortion mill and seeing the inside of a jail cell. So for me, the fact that Dr. Miller was an actual pro-life activist gives her book a higher level of credibility than the other books that were written by the non activist authors.

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.

This is a comprehensive account covering three decades of effective Pro-Life direct action.
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".

Abandoned is a fantastically, horrible book. Monica Miller writes the story lovely, and it is hard to read and see the images of what happen to the aborted babies. The book isn't a general overview of what abortion is and the different stances, but it is almost the autobiography of Miller's pro-life activist lifestyle. Monica Miller has devoted her like to saving the unwanted. In the book Abandoned, you find out all the hardships of doing what is right.
