Making Abortion Rare: A Healing Strategy for A Divided Nation

“Brilliant, unique. Making Abortion Rare will accomplish what its title claims–and much more.”- Rev. Paul Marx, Founder of Human Life International


Is it possible for abortion to become rare even before Roe v Wade is reversed? Dr. David Reardon answers yes and lays out a innovative three-pronged strategy for dramatically curtailing abortion rates within the current judicial and political climate.

Making Abortion Rare reveals a compassionate and comprehensive program of pastoral, political, and educational reform. It provides a strategy that will reduce antagonism, will create a healing environment for those who have been emotionally wounded by abortion, and will draw Americans together through their common concern for women.

Pro-life and pro-choice leaders call this new approach “inspired.” Pro-abortion radicals scorn it as “devious.” But all three camps agree that Making Abortion Rare is redefining the abortion debate, forever.This book answers these important questions:

  • Why is a non-judgmental love for those who have had abortions the key to ending abortion for this and future generations?
  • What simple screening process can prevent 70% of all abortions?
  • When is an abortionist legally and ethically obligated to refuse to perform an abortion?
  • How can we best protect women from being pressured into unwanted abortions?
  • How can we mend the divisions and heal the hurts between those who oppose abortion and those who have had abortions?

This book builds on the previous works of Dr. Reardon, which demonstrate that abortion is inherently injurious to the physical, psychological, social, familial, and spiritual health of women. With a clear, logical, and humane voice, Dr. Reardon provides readers with a practical strategy for making abortion not simply illegal, but unthinkable.

David C. Reardon, Ph.D., is a biomedical ethicist and the director of the Elliot Institute. A leader in post-abortion research and education for over twelve years, he is the author of Aborted Woman, Silent No More and The Jericho Plan: Breaking Down the Walls Which Prevent Post-Abortion Healing.

What reviewers are saying:

“This is exactly what women who have had abortions have been wanting to hear . . . I pray that this book will be widely read. It provides us with the road map to a kinder and gentler pro-life movement, one which will achieve far more, far more quickly, than we have ever achieved in the past.”–Nancyjo Mann, Founder, Women Exploited by Abortion

“David Reardon has shown a rare grasp of the current dynamics of the abortion controversy as it is today. His analysis and suggested pro-life strategy are right on the mark.”–Jack Willke, M.D., Pres., International Right to Life Federation

“Under the old rules of the abortion debate, where the rights of women and the unborn were in opposition, there was no room for agreement. But Reardon has changed the rules . . . From this point on, the abortion debate will never be the same.”–Mark Crutcher, Author, Lime 5

Making Abortion Rare reveals a compassionate and comprehensive program of pastoral, political and educational reform. This carefully considered approach will create a healing environment for those who have been emotionally wounded by abortion, will draw Americans together through their common concern for women, and will enforce proper civil liability for abortion related injuries which will literally shut down the abortion industry.

This book builds on the previous works of Dr. Reardon which show that abortion is inherently injurious to the physical, psychological, familial, and spiritual health of women and men. With a clear, logical, and humane voice, Dr. Reardon provides readers with a practical strategy for making abortion not simply illegal, but unthinkable.
