What do you get when you put a pro-life scholar and a pro-life journalist together to write a book? A guide to the future of the pro-life movement and the truth about abortion.
Ryan T. Anderson, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC), and Alexandra DeSanctis, a National Review staff writer and EPPC fellow, recently co-wrote “Tearing Us Apart: How Abortion Harms Everything and Solves Nothing” (Regnery Publishing, 2022). Published just days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the book promises to explain pro-life arguments with facts and logic while revealing the brutality of abortion and how it has wounded society.
In an interview with EWTN Pro-Life Weekly on Aug. 18, the authors said that they foresaw the possibility of the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the near future. That’s when they decided to “provide a pro-life roadmap to the future of the pro-life movement,” explained DeSanctis.
“We wrote a book hoping that it would be accessible, useful even, to people who don’t agree with us,” she said. “We wanted to make a case, of course, first of all, that the unborn child is harmed by abortion, is killed by abortion, but [also] to kind of show pro-lifers a broader case, that abortion has actually harmed everything it’s touched.”
