About the Author
If you walked through her front door, Cathy Harris would pour you a cup of coffee and invite you to her table. Diving deep into conversation and discovering the extraordinary gifts hidden in ordinary people is what makes Cathy come alive. She is a certified prenatal educator, a writer, a speaker, and a passionate pro-life voice, but most important, she is a wife and a homeschooling mother to three energetic babes. She resides in Manassas, Virginia.

At one point the author speculates as to what it would have been like for her if her church had been pro-life, if the pastor preached about abortion and the congregation was involved with pro-life activities. She concludes that this would have been bad because she would have felt more alienated. But what about the BABIES a church like this could save? You know, the babies being dismembered? So it would be bad because it would make her uncomfortable? Wouldn't pro-life activities be good? It seemed to me that the author only cared about the woman involved and her healing, but not about actually stopping abortion, which makes the title misleading. It's like postabortion women's feelings are the only important thing. I found that troubling.
I loved her chapter about creating a culture of life…if we show grace and encouragement, it can give a woman the courage to say no to an abortion. If we embrace life at all stages, there is more hope for the unborn.
Her writings on healing and forgiveness are applicable to so many other scenarios…not only someone with abortion or an unplanned pregnancy in his or her past, but to anyone with hurts that they have not been able to let go.
This is a well-written, eye-opening book…full of hope and life and forgiveness.
