Whose Child? begins not with an argument about the rights and wrongs of abortion but with a discussion on forgiveness and love. The following chapters look at the case against it from both secular and biblical points of view.

It’s a short, self-published book that can be dipped in and out of for reference. Anyone who has heard “the Bible doesn’t say anything about abortion” and has not, will find material to help them.

The biblical interpretation can be one-dimensional, and the book occasionally makes bold claims, for example suggesting that doctors downplay the risk of breast cancer from abortion because of the litigation that could arise.

More advanced readers may want more detail and nuance, but as a brief introduction it works well.
