Aborting Free Speech

How ‘Pro-Choice’ Advocates Became Anti-Choice Censors

by Mike S. Adams

"The best way to respond to bad speech is with better speech, not censorship." Mike S. Adams had a long and illustrious history of defending freedom of speech and advocating for the unborn. Initially, these were unrelated interests. But over the past several years, Mike catalogued a pattern of these issues' intersection, as the war against free speech has often been waged by the warriors against the right to life. Mike wrote columns about these incidents and ultimately decided to write this book. This is the unfinished manuscript that Mike was working on when he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in 2020.
What ensues is an artfully crafted series of accounts of censorship and attempts to censor the free speech of Christians who take bold stands for life on university campuses. Most of the stories Mike shares highlight heroes in David-and-Goliath standoffs characterized by doublethink and other bizarre contradictions. The Goliaths are fascinating to behold in their own grotesque way, and the Davids often win. The prose is efficient, varied, witty, ironic, and occasionally biting, but always followed with a wink. As a bonus, the transcript from Mike's highly publicized debate with an abortion provider is included in order to give you additional insights into his thinking.
