Author pens new book about life before and after an abortion
FORT MADISON, Iowa – The impact of Roe v. Wade in 1973 continues to affect public debate and personal lives. In her new book, “Spirits” (published by AuthorHouse) Paula Graham takes her teaching experience and turns it into a story of the effects of abortions on the lives of four people.
“When I was teaching middle school classes, one of the girls had an abortion,” Graham explains. “She came to see me one day and told me that her mother had put her on birth control. This made me extremely sad to see the change in her life after she had the abortion.”
In Burlington, Iowa, two unmarried couples, Emma and Jake and Chris and Sarah, make the decision to terminate their pregnancies. The decision changes their lives and how they deal with the ghosts of their pasts.
Graham hopes to draw attention to the after-effects of abortion and how it may impact the rest of a person’s life. “Abortion is a very major topic in the national debate and raises extremely passionate emotions in everyone.”
