Journalist and women's rights advocate Melinda Tankard Reist draws on women's own stories to examine the social, familial, and coercive pressures that lead to abortions, many of which are unwanted.

Aborted Women, Silent No More
"This may be the most powerful book ever published on abortion," according to the Conservative Book Club. Indeed, this classic sparked the rise in awareness about post-abortion issues among Christians and pro-life activists when it was first published in 1987, and continues to be one of the most valuable and well read resources in the field. It offers a comprehensive review of BOTH the physical and psychological aftereffects of abortion, describes the characteristics of high-risk abortion patients, the process of post-abortion healing and reconciliation, and the nature of the coverup of abortion risks and deaths by the abortion industry. It also contains the complete testimonies of 20 post-abortion women and the results of a detailed national survey of 252 post-abortion women. This is why Focus On The Family's CITIZEN magazine calls it the "standard reference book on post-abortion issues."
