This new book by Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life shines a bright light on the undeniable truth of abortion, that it impacts everyone – not only the mothers and fathers who lose their own children to abortion, but also the grandparents, siblings, extended families, religious and ethnic communities, pro-life advocates and even the abortion providers themselves. With 60 million legal abortions since 1973, there is no segment of our nation that remains untouched.
