Abortion is an issue that, undoubtedly, impacts both men and women. Yet, as Katelyn Beaty writes in “The Power of Pro-Life Women,” “Abortion is not a ‘women’s issue’; rather, it is a human issue that affects women uniquely.” In this sense, the perspectives of pro-life women are uniquely important to the movement. And women who were once pro-choice but are now pro-life offer some of the most unique and compelling voices within a movement whose reach extends far beyond the unborn. It extends to all lives, rescuing not only bodies but transforming hearts and souls too.
