Abortion: My Choice/God's Grace Christian Women Tell Their Stories
Abortion: My Choice/God's Grace Christian Women Tell Their Stories

This compilation of stories and essays edited by Anne Eggebroten confronts the reality of abortion as a morally responsible choice being made by countless Christian women of all denominations. This explosive issue was only made illegal in the U.S. in 1873, but the 1960s saw a change in America's attitude towards the ability of women to take control of their own bodies which culminated in the Supreme Court's historic Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Ever since the faith community has been divided on this subject, but everyone admits women have never stopped having abortions for a variety of reasons–health, rape, incest and unplanned pregnancies among other factors. The essays explore the biblical, theological and other arguments used in this issue. 239 pp.

The Library Journal said of this book, "After a foreword and introduction that place abortion in comparative contexts, 13 Christian women (both Roman Catholic and Protestant) write about their decision to abort; seven additional chapters provide further testimonies, e.g., memories of seeing a pregnant 15-year-old in a coffin, stories of church-sanctioned rape, and the editor's testimony to the importance of her being able to choose to birth an unplanned pregnancy. A concluding chapter addresses the issue of biblical support for choice. Related issues of violence toward women receive moving but restrained attention. An important presentation of facts and arguments that have often been silenced; essential for all libraries."

ANNE EGGEBROTEN, Ph.D., has taught writing and iterature at several colleges in the Los Angeles area. After receiving a BA at Stanford, she earned her graduate degrees at UCBerkeley. She lives with her husband and three daughters in Santa Monica, CA.
