"Shockwaves" will remain with you long after you’ve finished reading. Brilliantly argued, harrowing in its portraits of the walking wounded, Janet Morana has compiled a necessary and important book. By deconstructing our assumptions about abortion as a form of personal right, its morality, its function in modern society, how it actually works, Morana shows the tremor after the quake and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for or survive the shockwaves of abortion. By cutting through a bedrock of harrowing true-life testimonies, Morana provides an indispensable resource.

This book is not just for your friends, co-workers, and relatives who still consider themselves pro-choice. That's because in "Shockwaves,” Janet Morana paints a clear, well documented picture of how every abortion has a major ripple effect: a ripple effect that's more like a tidal wave leaving a path of death, destruction, and heartbreak. All of us, even those in the pro-life movement, need to be reminded of the ferocious fall-out of a so-called "women's right to choose.
