Mr. Underwood begins the book with an historical presentation, setting forth in chronological order the significant events in American history that shaped the progress we have achieved as a nation in our continuous struggle to advance the cause of civil rights. He draws on the principles enunciated in our Declaration of Independence and the Fourteenth Amendment to our Constitution in advancing his prolife/pro-Justice arguments and battle plan. He characterizes the pro-justice movement to abolish abortion as the Second Civil War, not to be fought with guns on the battlefield, but by the appropriate use of our dollars and voting power. He outlines a battle plan for all pro-Justice/prolife Warriors on how to win the war against the abortion industry.
Underwood's fine book is interspersed throughout with various prolife/pro-Justice sources, including books and websites, to help all pro-Justice / prolife Warriors change the hearts and minds of America on this most pressing issue of abortion, with the ultimate goal of overturning Roe v. Wade, the worst Supreme Court decision in our history as a nation. Three cheers for Perry Underwood! This was an excellent and inspiring read!
But the thing that really impressed me about this book was that it also proposed practical solutions of how to "change the shame" of abortion. No matter what your position is concerning abortion, this book is definitely worth a thoughtful read.
One of the most refreshing tactics employed in his defense of the civil rights of the unborn is an attempt to find common ground. Pro-life defense tactics, while well intended and effective to an extent, so often espouse biblical values for the defense of life, but to those who do not embrace a biblical ethic, this approach remains unconvincing and invalid. Being a Christian myself, I've witnessed firsthand the ineffectiveness of biblical defenses for life offered to those who feel religious rational for life is inadmissible. This often becomes the great divide at which both opposing positions, Pro-life and Pro-choice, stand unwavered in their commitment that what they believe is "right". Change the Shame offers a position between the two that bridges this gap by presenting the right to life, not as a religious issue, but rather as a civil rights issue. In doing so, he offers those who are Pro-life, Christian and non-Christian alike, a means to rebut abortion as a "Pro-Justice" issue and offers those who are Pro-Choice an opportunity to make more informed and intellectually honest choices based upon historical examples of erroneous ideas about justice which have since been recognized for the grave injustices and insults to humanity that they were.
Change the Shame is a continuation of the inevitable acquisition of Liberty and Justice for all!
