Ladies for Life

Book Thread

Posted on: December 3, 2008

At Books & Culture, Agnes R. Howard reviews Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population, by Matthew Connelly, and Conceiving Parenthood: American Protestantism and the Spirit of Reproduction by Amy Laura Hall. Howard finds quite a bit of fault with Conceiving Parenthood, but also some valuable contributions to the discussion of how we got to a culture that’s steeped in a “quality control” mindset when it comes to children.

In the sidebar, there was an ad for a book called Embryo: A Defense of Human Life, by Robert P. George and Christopher Tollefsen. (George has been fighting this battle longer than some of us. See, for instance, Infants & Civil Rights, from 2000, in favor of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.)

Earlier on this blog, a commenter recommended the book Render unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life, by Charles Chaput. Uncommon Knowledge interviewed Chaput in September about the book and related matters.

I haven’t seen any of the above books yet. If you’ve reviewed them, or would like to comment on them, please drop a note/link in the comments box here. Also, if you’ve done reviews or have recommendations on other books that would likely be of interest to other pro-lifers, drop a note in the comments. Comments with multiple links tend to get shunted to the spam queue, so please feel free to make multiple comments, if you’re providing links.
