deVeber News -Spring 2015
Since we've last spoken to you, we have done well in promoting our most recent publication, Complications: Abortion's Impact on Women. To date we have sold over 1650 copies both domestically and worldwide and we have recently received a reprint order of 600 copies. We have also released an EPub version of our book on both Kindle and Kobo platforms. These may be purchased on Amazon or here.
Complications: Worldwide Validity in Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons:
The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeouns recently published a review of our book! In his Spring 2015 review, Patrick CAroll noted that Complications is "especially useful as a reference for those engaged in dabates or litigation" due to its comprehensive references to medical journals and other scientific publication.
Caroll also lauded the book for meeting "a major need to make these effects known." He noted that while proponents of abortion have been willing to acknowledge some of the physical effects on women that follow from the aborotion procedure, they have been reluctant to acknowledge abortion's effects on mental health and breast cancer. Here, Caroll noted the valuable additions of the chapters covering these topics, since some jurisdictions specifically approve abortions for reasons of mental health.
Caroll concluded his review by acknowledging the book's merits for continuing to disseminate abortion data that has long been neglected and overlooked by researchers and research funding insitutions. He noted that the scientific references found in Complications "have worldwide validity, and we can usefully cite them." The complete review may be found here.
Summer Plans at the deVeber Institute
Our plans for the summer include:
1. conducting research to develop an up-to-date survey of current studies on euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide in the US and Europe,
2. continued promotion of Complications: Abortion's Impact on Women internationally,
3. consolidating research since the publication of Complications, including the updating of chapters with the latest studies and making those updates available online.
Now more than ever there is a need to support us this summer so that we can oversee these plans and goals. We ask you to please consider sending a donation today to help us continue our work and pull through the summer into the fall so that we may better support our officials, physicians, and the Canadian public.
