Readers' Responses to Why ProLife?
Your book Why Prolife? has changed my entire opinion on abortion, for the better. I am an Atheist and I don't think anything is God's decision which is why I've been pro-choice and for the idea of abortion. I like free-will and the ability to choose for one's self. This book so wonderfully left out religion. Fact and evidence is the only way you'll get people like me to side with the pro-lifers. It's the obvious choice. This book has most definitely opened my eyes. —T.H.
What an incredible book! If you have never considered reading a book on the prolife versus pro-abortion subject, please consider it now. This book is a must-read for everyone. It includes an incredible wealth of information, presented in a very easy-to-read and easy-to-understand, heartfelt and caring manner. If you think that this debate has nothing to do with you, please reconsider. This is an issue that we should all be aware of and educated about, and Why ProLife? is definitely a book you should read. This will be one of the best ways you have ever spent $3. —A.C.
A woman came crying…with her husband, and testified…that they had planned to abort their 5th child, since they are landless and children are grieving their hearts because of needs…so after the teachings [in Why Prolife?] she convinced the husband and brought him to me…and l shared with the husband the testimony…to save many innocent lives. The man who was so furious and violent, cooled down, repented and accepted Jesus and now the wife is eight months pregnant, they have agreed to take care of the fetus. This teachings are so, so timely and seasoned for such times. Many young girls come in our small pharmacy and clinic seeking assistance for abortion, but this book is a tool of solution. Many lives have been saved and rescued because of this book. – B. (clinic worker in Kenya)
I gave a copy of Why Prolife? to a friend who was very pro-abortion and thought women should be able to have an abortion at any point and for any reason. After reading the book, she said she wished I hadn't given it to her, as it made her feel she couldn't justify her view anymore! — P.S.
Your book on abortion, Why ProLife?, helped me find the courage to talk to a friend and keep her from having one. I spent so much time praying for her to turn around and come to a life of purity. She read your book and asked me why it was such a big deal to me and I was able to bring her closer to Christ. Thank you for writing that book! — M. L.
Your book Why Prolife? (listened to on audio CD) absolutely solidified my prolife stance. — J. H.
Why ProLife? made such a huge impact on my opinions concerning abortion that I ordered 150 copies from the publishing house. During our fundraising campaign “For the Love of Babies”, each person who took a baby bottle also received a copy of this book. I told many recipients, “I don’t care if you fill the bottle or not…at least read this book. It will change your views on abortion!” Upon returning the bottles, several women told me that before they read the book, they were sitting on the fence on the abortion issue. But the book opened their eyes and hearts on the pr-life issue. — Pregnancy Resource Center worker, Montreal, Canada
I am enjoying Why ProLife? so very much. I'm finding the apologetics for being prolife on par with the best qualities of Ravi Zacharias' or C.S. Lewis' apologetics for the Christian Faith. I will have to go through this many times to make it part of my response to false reasoning, but it's so very worth the effort. The simple, compassionate, and well-reasoned response to the prochoice ethos is far more effective than most else I've seen. — C. C.
I just finished reading your book Why ProLife? Fantastic read. Very simple answers to all the arguments we face from the other side. I really enjoyed it and have already recommended it to several friends. — J. E.
I found, read with astounding interest, and am recommending to every inmate your book Why ProLife? What an amazing publication. Already being an active, supporting member of a local anti-abortion work here, I will make sure copies of your book are made available at the center. I personally was so impressed and impacted by your direct and informative writings that it is impossible for me to tell you how you’ve made me feel about what I’ve read. There will be others who will read your books, and they too will be stirred, healed and blessed by your ministry. If my incarceration saves the life of one child and then its mother too, I’ll know my time here served a God-given purpose. — L. O., inmate
Thank you for helping equip the Church with regard to protecting, celebrating, and defending life. Your books ProLife Answers to ProChoice Arguments and Why ProLife? are wonderful resources and have greatly helped me in sharing the truth about children in the womb, and abortion with my friends, strangers, and professors. — D. G.
I just finished Why ProLife? and am so impressed I’m telling all my friends they should read it. The back of the book states that it is concise and nonabrasive, and I can’t think of a book that better fits that description, but still does such an awesome job of strongly conveying the truth about abortion. I’ve always been pro life, but only had a vague sense of how to convey that to others. After reading your book I feel many times more confident in being able to discuss abortion with someone else. In addition, although our current home doesn’t have the room to house an additional person, I would love to be able to do this one day for a pregnant and needy woman. I hope this will be one of the top considerations when choosing our next house. Thank you once again for your amazing book. — M. F.
I travel each Saturday to stand outside the abortion clinic and pray, stand vigil, and hopefully touch some hurting person’s heart before she falls prey to a quick fix which she will most likely regret for the rest of her life. Along with the literature I have with me to hand out and refer to, I have a dog-eared copy of Why ProLife? which I’ve practically memorized. I find it an extremely handy reference to point out reasons why the prochoice side is so deluded, and why when one truly examines their heart and their heads, there is no other choice but to save the lives of the innocent. — K. L.
I would like to thank you all for sending me the prolife book which I requested earlier. I just received this morning and by just glimpsing on the cover at the back, I felt moved. I’m fully convinced that unborn children should be born and not be deprived of beautiful life. Abortion is an evil thing to do. — D. P., Philippines
I’m not much of a reader, but I couldn’t put this book down. What a powerful message. Mr. Alcorn has given such powerful, easy to understand information on the prolife stance, anyone can easily share this information. I am the nurse manager at a Crisis Pregnancy Center and am purchasing multiple copies of this book to give to members of my church in hopes of showing them the great importance of working or volunteering in our ministry. — R. S.

Why ProLife? is an excellent book. I am a pastor and former science teacher. This book should be required reading by everyone! — R. N.
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 Arguments for those who want to read more thoroughly on this issue. I really believe that this book (the little one, at least) 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.
