by Daniel C. Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life.
Excerpt from the Preface of the book:
With a heaviness of heart, I answered the next call, “Daniel Becker speaking.”
A calm and measured voice inquired, “You live at 1862 Liberty Grove Rd?”
At last–an emotionally stable and quiet tone of voice bringing with it the hope of a reasoned conversation.
“Yes,” was my muted reply.
He stated his name, going on, “I am a former Navy SEAL. I have seen a picture of you and your family in the news. You have three beautiful daughters. I am coming to rape them and then kill you!. . .@#%$%$. . . because of what you just did to MY family!!”. . .
. . .after an interminable period of horrendous verbal assault, I determined that I could stand to take only one more call.
“Daniel Becker,” I answered, my strained voice no doubt reflecting my horror at the realization of the scope of the consequences I had just unleashed upon my timid wife and five innocent older children.
Without identifying themselves, and with a momentary pause on the other end, a mother’s voice accompanied by her two teenage daughters began singing the first stanza of a familiar childhood hymn:
Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding God’s command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniel’s band. . .
Through the tears coursing down my cheeks, I thanked this homeschooling family for reminding me I was not alone. This battle for the “hearts and minds” of Georgia’s citizens was going to be monumental in its intensity–that was to be expected; that Christ Jesus was with me and that ultimately “the battle is the Lord’s”–that was a promise!What some people are saying about Personhood: “Dan Becker’s book is a great blend of prudence, pragmatism and principled politics; it is certain to cause us to rethink prolife strategy in the 21st century.”
