This book takes a very comprehensive look at the issue of abortion, and gives a well-thought reply to each pro-choice argument included in the book. Comprehensive is the key word here. I was amazed by how much ground the author was able to cover.

I appreciated the fact that the book was practical as well. One of the appendices is entitled, "Fifty Ways to Help Unborn Babies and Their Mothers". The author is obviously not interested in simply letting us nod our heads along with his arguments.

I cannot express how amazing and eye opening this book was. READ IT FOR YOURSELF!

this book, along with Mark Crutcher's Lime 5,are probably the two most valuable pro-life books that exist. Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments is a comprehensive study of abortion in our contemporary culture. Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments is packed with facts, statistics, quotes, and other valuable information. It is like a pro-life Encyclopedia, and invaluable to any pro-life activist. Even a person who is wavering on the abortion issue could learn a lot from this book. Randy Al ...more

Okay, technically I have not read this entire book cover to cover. But it is a wonderful resource to address specific arguments in the pro-life/pro-choice debate. So, if you're already pro-life like me, this book is a great tool to help you articulate why - besides it just being "right" or "moral". If you're not this will definitely give you something to think about.
Kevin Goldsmith
This was a scientifically grounded tour de force. Randy Alcorn provides an abundance of factual ammunition to complement your argumentative arsenal. This was an eye-opening book. I wish more pro-life books were written more frequently. An excellent read which I highly recommend.
Jasmine
Amazing amount of research to provide evidence to counter all arguments. A read for both sides of the debate to get info on the other. Obviously a pro-life tilt though. I often use snippets in conversation. And have read it multiple times.
Kari
While the Kindle version had some typos I found the book highly informative. I encourage all to read whether you consider yourself pro-abortion or not. He addresses the pro-life view in detail and with significant facts as well.
Michelle Hilleson
Again, 5 stars are just not enough. Even reading the table of contents was informative. This is Randy Alcorn's passion. Very clear and thoughtful answers to many pro choice arguments that tend to trip up those in the pro life community
Morgan Biagioni
This book is incredible. I am 14 years old and a prolifer, and I figured I ought to read more about abortion and the prolife arguments. I picked up this book at a bookstore and decided to read it.

I couldn't put it down. Even though it is a hard read, it clearly explains the reasoning behind each argument and has lots of references.

I've noticed several reviews on other sites about it being unclear or vaguely referencing studies without giving much detail on them, but for every study he's refere

If you need a "go to" resource on the pro-life issue, look no further. Alcorn lays it all out clearly--by argument. This book is more than worth your investment.
Margaret
Simple, straightforward answers to abortion qustions.

It does have some descriptions about abortion procedures. Not for the faint of heart.
Gemma
Wow. This is an issue dear to my heart, and though I have read up extensively on the subject, I still learned a lot from this book.

Recommends it for: Teenagers on up.
This book was very good. The content itself was excellent. I feel much more confident in my ability to communicate my concerns about abortion and my belief in the value of every individual baby now. I chose not to finish this book at this time for 2 reasons: 1) It's a long book, and 2) It's a very emotional topic for me (as it is for many others). It is hard to wrestle with the concept of what is actually happening to women and children the world over in the name of choice. I may return to the b ...more

A book every Christian needs to read! And every pro-choice advocate needs to read.

Probably the best pro-life book I've ever come across.

Excellent. Well written.

A good reference.
Gabriel Hanson
This book answers questions that involved Pro LIfe and Pro Choice views on abortions. The format consists of questions and answers. A question or statement is asked or given and the answer is discussed. An example of this is, "If there is uncertainty about when human life begins, the benefit of the doubt should go to preserving life." The author then uses this statement to explain the Pro Life argument and the Pro Choice argument. The author is bias towards the Pro Life side of the argument, an ...more

An unbelievably comprehensive look at the flaws in pro choice arguments and the logic in pro life claims. Alcorn gives his point and shows how evil and illogical abortion is. Must read if you want to learn about abortion.
