The morality of abortion has emerged at the “hot button” issue of 21 C America. Steeped in controversy since the founding of the American colonies, legalized by the decision of Roe V. Wade, abortion remains the major spiritual, political, and theological divide among a nation of 300 million. Although the battle lines between the Pro-Life and Pro-Choice camps have been drawn and fortified by good people on both sides, the author challenges all comers to enter into the thick of the abortion question. Drawing upon the embodiment argument of Beverly Wildung Harrison, the overarching need for the “in-breaking” of God afresh daily in “concrete” lives lifted up by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and an examination of a twist in the thesis of Reinhold Niebuhr (Immoral Wo/man and Moral Society), the author provokes the readers to the increased and sometimes unbearable tension of finding the voice of the “other” in our own selves. Shocking in its candid drive to seek a new path, Abortion in 21st Century America will broaden and sharpen our understanding of abortion in America.
