We Choose Life is a collection of compelling stories from men and women who are dedicated to rescuing babies, mothers, and fathers from abortion. Though sometimes heartbreaking, this book reveals examples of forgiveness, healing, and hope. We Choose Life brings light into the enveloping darkness of the culture of death.
Each year 44 million babies are killed from intentional abortion around the world and 1.29 million babies are aborted in the United States. However, progress against abortion is being made. Movements of optimism are taking place in the pro‑life cause, mostly led by young people. We Choose Life seeks to bring awareness to real stories of people who are doing something— individuals such as Ramona Trevino and Jewels Green, who found grace and forgiveness after they quit their jobs at abortion clinics. In these powerful true stories about forgiveness and hope from people of a variety of backgrounds, readers will see that their stories can also make a difference.
“We Choose Life is sure to encourage, challenge, and perhaps even disrupt some preconceived ideas of all who read it. The most captivating facet is the breadth of the perspectives from which its stories are taken, from the adoptee, to the ex-abortionist, to teens impassioned to expose the lies, to post-abortive women and men, to children born with disabilities or conceived through rape. . . . Each story shines forth as a glorious point in a multifaceted display, coming together in one powerful declaration: that all life is precious and every life is a priceless gift from our loving Creator.”
“We Choose Life is a great encouragement to all pro-life advocates as well as a resource for those struggling with the debate. Dave Sterrett has compiled a compelling group of stories that show the true pain and heartache that surround abortion, and I am grateful for his efforts in producing such an encouraging book of stories.”
“It is not a cliché to say that the pro-life movement is about hearts and minds. It’s true—all you have to do is look inside the movement. The people you encounter in these pages had different paths but all of them shed light on how much closer we are to seeing an abortion-free America.”
