"A model of excellent scholarship and writing."

Gary Whitby

Associate Professor, Clarke College

"Professor Olasky's calm, judicious reading of the evidence details the media's crucial role in molding public opinion. Regardless of their position on abortion, readers will reap rich dividends from The Press and Abortion."

J.C. Willke

President, National Right to Life

"The untold story has finally been told, and with the benefit of Marvin Olasky's careful judgment and graceful prose."

George Grant
