Achieving Peace in the Abortion War

Predictions on Possible Social Impacts of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Cognitive Dissonance as Structural Stressors, by Rachel M. MacNair, Ph.D.

Some excerpts from Chapter 1: The Well-Kept Secret:

Having gone through the exercise of listening to the real-life experience of doctors and nurses involved in providing abortion in the United States, I have come to the conclusion that the abortion business is too fragile to last. In this book, I take a preliminary look at the psychology and social dynamics of performing abortions.

Though more study and the passage of time will tell whether this is right, I will risk making the following prediction: the abortion business is weakening, this downturn can't be stopped, and the American public for the most part will not be sad to see it go.

Politics won't settle the issue. Achieving peace doesn't mean scoring a victory over opponents. Only when everybody's well-being is realized will we get peace. And peace is coming.

Dr. McNair then begins to explore what she's learned from listening to what it's like to work in the abortion business. It's grim, miserable work. Dr. McNair's findings are cause for rejoicing, because she finds that even the most decieved people still have a core within them that recognizes the truth and longs to be free of the soul-killling lies.

I recommend that everybody prayerfully read Dr. McNair's pivotal work.
