I am only 100 pages in to this book but I have already spent ten minutes straight talking about it/railing against abortion protesters to Mike. I think that means I am INVOLVED.

Okay, now I have finished it and would like to sit in front of CPCs handing it out. ABORTIONS FOR SOME, TINY AMERICAN FLAGS FOR OTHERS? Sure, maybe Wicklund's account of being an abortion provider is a tad glossy (Some women are so happy to get abortions! Other women are empathetically counseled and choose to keep their pregnancies!) but with anti-abortion rhetoric being what it is, pro-life readers would probably seize on any doubt, indecision, or presumed mistake in the narrative and use it to further their cause. On the supplemental reading list for those people who didn't have time or the tears to finish The Girls Who Went Away.
