The primary reason I read Why ProLife? was to prepare for a short message I delivered a couple of weeks ago on Sanctity of Life Sunday. Since my wife and I had our first child last July, my heart has been more gripped with sorrow by the spiritual darkness that leads to abortion. Alcorn’s book was a great blessing to me, primarily in how it equipped me to talk about the prolife position with a person whose religious beliefs are not like mine.
Many people who opposed the prolife position wrongly think that the only people who defend the rights of the unborn are people whose religious beliefs define how they view human life. (My dad, who vehemently supports a woman’s ‘right to choose,’ said this to me last weekend). This book is a great one to refute such wrong thinking. Alcorn does not argue from Scripture, but from common sense and a little bit of science and medical research.
The book is very short (120 pages), and could be read easily in a few hours. There is an expanded version called ProLife Answers to ProChoice Questions for those who want to read more thoroughly on this issue. I really believe that this book Why ProLife? should be read by every Christian. Abortion is a great work of darkness, and God calls His people to take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but to expose them (Ephesians 5:11). Alcorn does an excellent job of exposing this dark work. – L. R.
