“The abortion movement has been rolling like a juggernaut across the landscape of our cherished moral values. A sizeable squad of militant proponents, both religious and otherwise, have been at the controls. The fuel that powers the movement is its slogans: “Every woman has a right to control her own body!” “Every child a wanted child!” “Freedom of choice!” “A fetus is not a person!” And there is nothing quite so convincing as a good slogan if it is repeated often. But the problem is that slogans often obscure more than they clarify. The result is that many women feel deep sadness and uneasiness about the whole matter of abortion, but the slogans sound so plausible and formidable that they cannot seem to find words with which to voice their own objections. Jean Garton masterfully probes the true meanings behind the smokescreen of words which cloud the real issue. Slogan by slogan she supplies the reasoning for the people who have known all along that abortion is wrong but haven’t known how to say so.” (From the back cover)
