ProLife Answers is impressive: well organized and easy to use, well referenced, easy to read, and is largely based on good science and logic. First I'll tell you why I like the book, and discuss why I deducted a star.
What I liked:
* Well organized and easy to use: The book is divided into sections for each category of argument: (1) life humanity and personhood, (2) rights and fairness, (3) social issues, (4) health and safety, (5) the hard cases, (6) the character of prolifers. Each argument is numbered and has anywhere from 4 to about 11 rebuttals, which are numbered and lettered for easy reference.
* Well referenced: This book contains 789 references. Not all are primary sources, but he does cite peer-reviewed medical journals when discussing scientific matters. Other references include popular media, other books, and personal interviews. Note that in trying to debunk his arguments, some may take issue with some of the personal interviews, because these sources are difficult to verify.
* Easy to read: Alcorn writes in a conversational, first person, non-inflammatory tone, which is refreshing on such a hot button topic. He shows how women who have abortions are often pressured and mislead into doing something they don't realize is horrific. I believe readers of this book will save more babies by taking on Mr. Alcorn's tones of compassion and logic, rather than tones of angry rhetoric.Read more ›
To supplement this book, I recommend:
*Prolife Feminism Yesterday and Today (edited by Mary Krane Derr), which presents feminist pro-life arguments from both "first wave" suffragists (Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Victoria Woodhull, etc.) and "second wave" pro-life feminists.
*Pro-Life Feminism: Different Voices (edited by Gail Grenier-Sweet) focuses on modern feminist arguments against abortion.
*Swimming Against the Tide: Feminist Dissent on the Issue of Abortion (edited by Angela Kennedy) takes the reader across the "pond" to hear the concerns of more modern pro-life feminists in Britain and Ireland.
*Real Choices: Listening to Women, Looking for Alternatives to Abortion (by Frederica Mathewes-Green)-- endorsed by both pro-lifers and pro-choicers-- first asks "Why do women have abortions?" (Pro-lifers and pro-choicers will be surprised by the answers!) and follows with "Can we use women's actual responses to work to provide them better alternatives from which to choose?" (So women won't feel like "trapped animals.") It's a briliiant book for anyone who cares about real women.
All of these books are available through Amazon.com.
