Abandoned is an oral history of the Pro-Life movement, and a plea for protection of the innocent children threatened by abortion.
Monica Migliorino Miller is a nationally known pro-life leader, a pioneer and veteran of pro-life activism dating back to 1976, and founder of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society. In addition to her pro-life leadership, Miller is an associate professor of religious studies at Madonna University having earned her doctorate at Marquette University. Monica and her husband Edmund have three children. She resides in South Lyon, Michigan.
"Abandoned 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 hop 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."
