9780615874418: The Issue is Life: A Lawmaker's Perspective from Decades of Fighting for the sanctity of Life

The abortion debate has divided our country more than any issue since slavery. The unborn are the most helpless in our society and John Grant has a passion to save the lives of the hopeless and helpless for whom no one speaks. Senator Grant is an esteemed attorney and lawmaker who served in the battlefield of political life for twenty-one years. As part of a legislative body, he learned how to fight the battle, and this book gleans from that powerful experience. The battleground is no less volatile today in the courts and legislative chambers across the land. Roe v. Wade has forever changed our society. It created a new industry and a changed mindset. While the decision created certain rights for those outside the womb, it took away rights for millions still in womb. The real issue is life and what we believe about it in all facets. It is a culture war between good and evil. This insightful book is written to expose the truth and give a better understanding of how to engage in dialogue, especially with those in political office. Where truth is known, the persuasion for protection and rights of the unborn becomes clear and unambiguous.
