Editor's Pick: Achieving Peace in the Abortion War

by Rachel M. MacNair (Feminism & Nonviolence Studies Association and iUniverse, Inc)

Elections come and go, and outcomes depend on events and characters out of the control of any single movement. The United States' downward trend in abortions, however, has happened steadily through both Democrat and Republican administrations.

Rachel MacNair is the director of the Institute for Integrated Social Analysis, the research arm for Consistent Life: Voices for Peace and Life (http://www.consistent-life.org). In this book she reveals the fragility of abortion practice in the United States, explained by the trauma experienced by the doctors and nurses involved in providing abortion. The social and psychological dynamics of performing and defending abortions offer many opportunities for stopping widespread feticide. The more we understand these, the more effective we can be as peacemakers in the abortion war.  Learn more. (http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?BookId=SKU-000114184)
