The choice is yours: will you choose life or will you choose death? When it comes to determining your stance on the abortion debate, this simple question exhibits your belief and understanding of what it means to let an unborn child live or die.
Author Jim Harrison is the happy father of two adult sons and grandfather of four grandchildren, so he believes in the preciousness of life and giving a child a chance. His new nonfiction book, Pro-Life: Saving the Lives of Unborn Children, Making Possible Their Descendants, and Helping Their Parents, gives readers a comprehensive glimpse into conception, pregnancy and how abortion changes the whole biological process.
Jim begins his argument for pro-life by detailing the intricate steps of procreation, from the conception between an egg and a sperm to the milestones an unborn baby reaches at different points in pregnancy: the first time practicing breathing, the ability to listen, learn and remember, the preparation for being delivered.
However, Jim also makes sure to educate readers, men and women, on the unsettling procedures performed under the umbrella of abortion; procedures that are more inhumane and violent than an unsuspecting mother-to-be might believe. Abortion also doesn't end when the child is removed, but lasts with the former mother through medical complications and internal struggles with her choice.
Included in Pro-Life are discussion points about descendants from an aborted child that will never be born, and discoveries/achievements never made, as well as the lack of babies to be adopted by countless parents ready to begin their families.
The hope is that fathers and mothers will use the resources and knowledge within the book to make the life-securing decision to give their children continued life, and maybe adopt them to prospective parents ready to welcome them home.
As stated earlier, the choice is yours to make; to Jim, you can't know what God has chosen for your child to achieve if not given life.
