I only have a few minutes now because Edie and I are about to go sidewalk counseling at our local Planned Parenthood abortion site, but I wanted to say a few words this morning and then get back to this later.
The novel Universal Man starts slowly because it immerses the reader into the lives of the characters who later are key characters in the much larger drama. The novel explores the question of what might happen if the resolution of abortion, hopefully the end of legal abortion and the granting of legal protection to pre-natal children—what might happen if abortion resolved like slavery did in this country. That is, civil war. I have long believed that we can not end the large scale murder of children in the womb unless we have the same kind of commitment and level of sacrifice that people gave to save civilization back in the 1940s. The novel delves into those ideas and their consequences through the devices contained in Story.
The illustration in the ad is a detail of the third volume's cover. The cover image itself is of the US Marine Corps War Memorial representing the famous photo from the WWII battle of Iwo Jima.
