Life is going along without too many problems and then the intrusion of an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy happens. Fear, confusion, panic, depression, loss and tears flood into your soul.
What are you going to do? Who can I tell? Is abortion the right decision for me? If not, how on earth will I be able to carry my unborn to term? The shock of my emotions flooding in with questions about real life seems to overwhelm me. Where can I go to get the info I need to make this very difficult decision? No matter what I choose, my life is changing and I will never be able to just go back as though this never happened.
It was with great compassion and sensitivity that I wrote Lives Interrupted: The Unplanned Pregnancy Dilemma. The many women I had the opportunity to interview were all hurting in some way. Even when the decision to have an abortion was made quickly, the aftermath was emotionally painful. Either keeping their baby or giving it up for adoption brought about a deep sense of loss. The women who chose abortion after a rape were in anguish and many had no words to express their pain. Mothers who had abortions because of a medical anomaly in the fetus suffered as greatly. The stories themselves as told by the mothers are a better witness to the difficult and perilous journey they had to face.
It is rare for a book or an agency to present the pros and cons for both abortion and carrying the unborn to term. Lives Interrupted can provide education, interviews with professionals and personal stories from both sides of the dilemma. While the subject is difficult to face, the book is presented in an easy reading format. It is the author’s hope that the reader, after completion of reading, will have a clearer understanding of what is involved and what is the best decision for her.
Lives Interrupted: The Unplanned Pregnancy Dilemma can be purchased from any of the online bookstores.

If physical, mental and spiritual perfection
defines the value of human life, who sets the standards of measurement? Further, if genetic testing of fetuses and psychological profi ling
of prospective parents could determine whether a child would be smart/attractive/sociable/ethical, successful in school, at work, and as a member of society, would this potentially contribute to
more abortions? Will there come a time in a futuristic tableau in which world governments not only regulate how many children are allowed per family (e.g., China’s One-Child Policy) but also have the power to eliminate any in utero that have been determined to carry defective and/or undesirable genes?

In her third book, Lives Interrupted, Jeanne Miller shares her personal life experiences related to her mother’s unwanted pregnancy with courage and honesty. Her writing style is clear, concise and easily readable because her words have been so carefully chosen.
In Lives Interrupted, Jeanne provides a poignant expression of the voice of the unborn child. I honor the extensive research Jeanne has done in writing this book. I also honor her inclusion of perspectives differing from her own.
It is imperative in our society that people have the opportunity to express their feelings, thoughts and beliefs in dialogue with one another in support of women and motherhood rather than leaving a woman’s fate to be determined in the impersonal legal and legislative arenas.
I thank Jeanne for her clarity, honesty and sincerity.

Lives Interrupted: The Unwanted Pregnancy Dilemma provides updated research and data on pregnancy primarily in the United States. The book also includes a comprehensive collection of
women’s pregnancy choices and consequences. Jeanne Miller describes her own personal birth situation as a springboard for her research and interviews with an array of various women’s
backgrounds. What emerges from this book are insights into different pregnancy dilemmas and how choices have impacted lives. Lives Interrupted is a must-read for any woman contemplating options for her pregnancy.

Lives Interrupted: The Unwanted Pregnancy Dilemma is an important book. I appreciate the authors efforts to make it as balanced and impartial as possible. That kind of restraint in not often found within the context of the debate surrounding this issue.
