Review

This book's logic is unassailable its research is impeccable; and its scope is monumental. If you have room for only one prolife book in your library, make sure it is this one. -- George Grant

Format: Paperback
As a non-Christian, non-religious, feminist liberal, I arrived at my pro-life position not by opening up a Bible, but by reading the reproduction chapter in an anatomy and physiology book, and studying the photos. I volunteer this information about myself, because I share a demographic with many of the pro-choice folks who are at the receiving end of Randy Alcorn's answers in this book.
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.

The author uses sound reasoning to expose both the illogic in the pro-choice arguments and the lies propogated by the abortion industry. He presents the case so clearly that I now see abortion as synonymous with murder. He includes the testimony of a former abortionist who realized the full weight of his actions when he saw an ultrasound of the procedure. Reading this book has spurred me into activism for human rights. The book also lists help sources (and hope in Christ) for women/men traumatized by a past abortion.

This is a cogent, well-organized and highly readable body ofwork. I have read dozens of publications on the abortion debate, andthis is among the very best. It is second only to Beckwith's "Politically Correct Death" (also available from Amazon.com) in terms of comprehensivity and cogency.

While this book has many strengths, it should be supplemented with more woman-centered books about abortion. People often make ridiculous arguments that pro-lifers are "anti-woman" or "anti-feminist." Nothing could be further from the truth. The overwhelming majority of women experience abortion not as liberation, but as capitulation to social and economic pressures. That's anything BUT empowering!
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.

Utterly brilliant. Absolutely destroys every prochoice argument I have ever heard, including the hard ones, like rape and handicapped children. I notice some prochoice reviewers tried to deflect attention away from the main argument by saying the author is male, but obviously haven't read the book properly, since that minor point is also discussed. (just one point he makes here is that more women than men oppose abortion - and he makes 6 other points on this argument alone) I don't see how it is possible to read this book with an honest open mind and be prochoice - Randy Alcorn has done his homework and there is nowhere for prochoicers to run. Buy it - and be appalled at how an ongoing crime to humanity worse than the Holocaust and linked to the exploitation of women, continues to be protected by legislation. This book is destined to become a classic - the ultimate textbook for any clear thinker on this issue. Footnote - Congratulations to Alcorn for the way the book is setup. Any aspiring writers on a controversial issue should copy the format of this book, because it is so helpful to finding answers to questions quickly - most people don't have time to read a book this length in one sitting.
