Overview

Every day, thousands of children fragile, innocent, alone are abandoned. They are brutally snuffed from the world and literally left in the trash . . . and it's all legal. Abandoned is the story of one woman's staunch and courageous defense of those children abandoned by abortion.

Since 1976, Monica Miller has made it her life's work to defend the unborn: she has counseled pregnant women outside of abortion clinics and organized pro-life groups and sit-ins at many of those same clinics. She has blocked abortionists cars, been arrested, and gone to jail.

And she has pulled the bodies of thousands of unborn babies out of dumpsters and given them a proper burial.

She has photographed their bodies as well. Some of these heart-wrenching photographs are included in these pages to show that abortion is not merely a woman's choice or a hot-button political issue, but a bloody massacre of innocent life.

Heartfelt, honest, and unflinching, Abandoned is a first-hand account of the Pro-Life movement.

Inside, you'll find many fascinating tales from the front-lines of the abortion battle, including: Victories and defeats in sidewalk counseling; late-night rescues of the remains of aborted babies from abortion clinic dumpsters; the fascinating and daring story behind the disappearance of abortion clinic ads along the Chicago El Line; the courageous blockade of an abortionist's car at an Illinois rest stop; sit-ins, arrests, and sometimes unbelievable conversations (and conversions) outside of abortion clinics; chilling looks at the inner-workings of abortion mills; and much more.

Monica's stories and pictures from the front-lines of the Pro-Life movement are courageous, moving, and ultimately a powerful witness to the brief lives of unborn children, and an exhortation for us to do more to protect them.

<i>Abandoned</i> is the profound, breathtaking, and often daring journey of one woman, but it is much more than that. It is an oral history of the Pro-Life movement, a suspenseful, true-life tale of life and death, and a plea for the protection of the most helpless and innocent members of the human family.

Editorial Reviews

Saint Benedict Press - Jill Stanek
<i>Abandoned</i> is a kind of shocking immersion into the depths of the American battle over abortion. Here is preserved up-close and in detail an important historical moment that reveals at once the commitment, the fears, the frustration and the hope of those who oppose abortion and the darkest truth about the practice of abortion itself. This book is unprecedented, provocative and will leave its mark on all who read it.
Saint Benedict Press - Dinesh D'Souza
Quite simply, this is the best book ever written on abortion. Beautifully written, this is about the consequences of Roe v. Wade, as seen through the eyes of one woman, who tells a clear and compelling story with passion but without fanaticism. On a subject that is often heavy and depressing, this is a hard-hitting yet compassionate and moving book. Honestly, I wouldn't have thought such a narrative could be done, only now it has been done.
Saint Benedict Press - Joe Scheidler
As a pro-life activist leader who has fought for decades in the battle for the unborn I can honestly say that Miller's book is one of the most important ever written on the subject of abortion. It is a masterpiece of passion and unique insight. There are few books that can change a person's life - but this is one of them...As no other book has done, Miller's true story lays bear what's at stake in the war over abortion.
