Thank you for visiting our web site. We want you to know that we regard the
life of every human being as sacred and equal in dignity. That includes you and
anyone else who may disagree with us regarding abortion, and that also includes
all who obtain or perform abortions. We are, furthermore, convinced of the need
for and value of open and respectful dialogue, and are willing to sit down with
anyone who is willing to engage in such dialogue.
Whatever position a person takes on any issue, including abortion, that
person has a right to know the facts and a duty to respect the facts.
Otherwise, discussion cannot survive and communication is impossible.
Facts about abortion, and what it does, should not be distorted by anyone,
whether pro-life or pro-choice. To anyone concerned about abortion, we therefore
propose the following questions as a stimulus to thought, and invite you to
share your responses with us:
1. Have you ever seen an abortion
or its results? (It is the most common surgery in America. You've probably
seen other surgeries on television. How about abortion?)
2. Have you ever read Abortion Practice, Dr. Warren Hern's medical
textbook on how to perform abortions?
To anyone concerned about women's rights and women's health (as we are), we
1. Have you studied the research that shows the physical and psychological
impact of abortion on women? (This is not a question of whether you accept the
conclusions. This is a question of whether you have read and studied all the
2. Have you read the documentation that shows how unregulated the legal
abortion industry is, and how women are being exploited, injured, and killed in
"safe, legal" facilities? Order the book Lime 5 available from the Life Dynamics website.
Have you heard the testimonies of women who have
been harmed, or former abortion providers who speak about it?
3. Are those who fight to keep abortion legal, for the sake of women, also
willing to make legal abortion safer, for the sake of the same women? In
particular, would you support
this proposed set of legal safeguards?
On the topic of overall strategy, we ask our visitors to share with us their
opinion about Naomi Wolf's article
Our Bodies, Our Souls,
she, though maintaining a pro-choice position, points out what she believes are
some critical mistakes of many efforts to advance abortion rights.
Some pro-choice people maintain that abortion is compatible
with Christianity, and construct a religious defense of their position, using
the Bible and various theologians. The book
Abortion? addresses this position.
We invite our pro-choice friends who want to
communicate with us to tell us what motivates them to keep abortion legal,
and to ask us any questions of their own. Write us or e-mail us at the addresses
indicated below. Thank you again for your time and your sincerity.
