I read Ms Gallagher's article and her "aha" moment, awakening her to the humanity of the unborn. It reminds me of a similar incident related by Paul Tournier in his book "The Naming of Persons". A woman was distraught over being pregnannt and was considering an abortion. She came to speak with Dr. Tournier. In speeaking with her, Dr Tournier asked " Tell me, if you had planned to keep the child what names were you considering?" The woman was meditative for a moment and then looked at Dr. Tournier. She then said softly"Thank you" and got up and left.

Thanks Rhett. That's a beautiful story.
Are you sure about the book title though? I tried to find it online but couldn't.

Thanks, I just ordered it. Pretty amazing price difference between new and used: $103.50 : $0.01
I splurged on a used copy, paying exactly 100 times more than I could have: $1.00
