Blood Money

I requested this book from the library, picked it up yesterday and couldn't put it down. A must read for anyone, pro-life or pro-choice. Blood Money by Carol Everett exposes abortion as a business, a business that's main goal (like any other business) is increasing profit. Carol, a post-abortive mother herself, shows how the lust for money fuels the abortion business, disregarding the lives and health of mothers and babies. One particular story that struck me was of a woman who had to come in for another abortion because the first abortion didn't work. Another woman was much farther along than the abortionist thought and as he reconstructed the baby, he tried to hide the measurements from Carol because the infant was actually 32 weeks gestation, able to survive outside the woman. This book is graphic-it describes Carol putting the aborted babies down the disposal, feeling a baby move while an abortion is being performed, and the many covered-up botched abortions that maimed and even killed some women. Another interesting thread in the book is Carol's emotional journey after her own abortion and how it affected all of her relationships. Also check out this link to a documentary that features interviews with Carol and also Norma McCorvey, the subject of Roe v. Wade.
