Prochoice people will naturally dislike this book, but for the open-minded prochoice person looking to get an understanding of how some prolife people see the abortion debate, "Who Broke the Baby?" will be quite informative.
At first glance, these slogans hit the core fears of a woman facing an unexpected pregnancy, and feed at her most selfish intentions, that her life is more sacred than any other life. Broken down by Dr. Garton, these slogans are seen in their proper light, as fear-mongering mantras designed by people who are not concerned with her or her unborn baby.
Dr. Garton presents to women that they do have a choice, and shows them how they are being manipulated. Similarly, the media might not have had time to think about this bumper-sticker statements, but "Who Broke the Baby?" gives reporters a chance to know how they are being used.
Yes, there are a lot of issues that are complex for a mother to be to deal with. There is no denying the financial and logistical troubles she may face... but confusing her with the muddled thinking of men and women who think having childen is an insult to femininity is not the answer.
Recommended by C Everett Koop, and consistent with the theologies of both evangelicals and Catholics, Dr. Garton's book transcends denominations as she herself is part of mainline protestants, a Lutheran.
I fully recommend "Who Broke the Baby?" by Jean Staker Garton.
