Former NOW member and Planned Parenthood volunteer releases a compilation of 16 abortion stories.
Centennial, CO (February 6, 2008) – Having a baby is a joyous moment for most mothers-to-be. For others, however, it represents a great change – a responsibility that they are not yet prepared to take. Though abortion is a choice women are free to make, the emotional burden after this action is often heavier to bear. In Motherhood Interrupted, author Jane Brennan, former member of NOW; Planned Parenthood clinic volunteer and post-abortive woman herself, shares stories of healing and hope after abortion that will bring to light the struggle women go through before and after making this choice.
Each child from the moment of conception has the right to live. Yet abortion ends this life before it has even barely begun. Witness as sixteen women come together to offer their personal experiences on how abortion affected their lives. These revealing stories underscore the impact of abortion on the individual, relationships and families. These courageous women overcome their shame and guilt to witness to the devastating aftermath of their choice. Through their stories, readers will understand that abortion is not the answer for women or society.
“Empowered and unified voices of experience speak dismissed truth into the darkest moments of child loss through choice. Forgiveness from the guilt of sin has birthed a new day of victory in secluded grief. “Motherhood Interrupted is a 'must read' for individual and corporate living beyond America's secret sorrow, abortion.” says Joyce Zounis, featured in the internationally released documentary, "I was wrong."
