Exhibiting a refreshing degree of honesty and grit, editor Teresa Wagner (a former lobbyist with the National Right to Life Committee) begins by telling us where we stand: ''It would be both untrue and overly dramatic to say that the pro-life movement has lost. But we are not winning. And the sooner we face it, the sooner we change it.'' Wagner, and her veritable list of contributors, is not interested in repudiating the pro-life movement's checkered record of wins and losses, but rather in critically thinking about its history and predicament so that the cause can continue in a new way. Here we find an atheist alongside Catholics, Evangelicals and Muslims. We read Democrats and Republicans, doctors, mothers, scientists, psychologists and rabbis offering tribute and critique from a great variety of viewpoints. If, as Richard John Neuhaus claims in his foreword, ''we are joined by a generation of young people who recognize that this is the great human rights cause of our time and theirs,'' this book could be instrumental in answering the question we all must ask: What now? good/--.
