With the renewed resurgence in the efforts of some far-right conservatives to make abortion illegal again, this book is being published at the perfect time. Linda Weber has been a psychotherapist and spiritual counselor for women for forty years. She became an active feminist in 1970 and was one of the country's first abortion counselors. Weber has walked through the process of abortion with many women and has witnessed many stories.
Through walking her own spiritual path as well as by being a student of history and social sciences, Weber is able to put the choice of having an abortion into a broader context, a spiritual context of compassion and understanding.
Every woman who has had an abortion, every man who participated in the decision, counselors, doctors, those who are pro-choice and those who are not, need to read this book. I have never seen this issue addressed in such a deep, holistic, loving, and compassionate manner. Oh, that those who would condemn women who make this choice should read and understand this book.
