Written in 1983, the consistency of Dr. Ron Paul is again demonstrated in this book. With a forward by C. Everett Coop, the surgeon general at the time under the Reagan administration, this book is a wholesale condemnation of the practice of abortion. He explains how, as a doctor, he became convinced that even the taking of an unborn life due to possible complications was wrong due to the inaccuracies of predicting birth defects. "Planning death for less than perfect human beings, or tiny human beings, is frightening. Those who argue that abortion won't lead to infanticide and euthanasia are hiding from the facts."
Unlike many of his neo-conservative contemporaries, Paul's stand against abortion has been consistent, and this book exemplifies this fact.
