Bill Ponath’s chapter on abortion is an accurate and well-documented analysis of the past, present and potential future of abortion laws in Arizona and the United States. His “laymen’s language” makes navigating the stormy and muddy waters of abortion laws an easy passage for everyone concerned with right to life issues. Bill also charts a course for the future challenging us to not grow weary in defending life at every stage.

Verdict for America offers truth and sound argument that will forge a real change if implemented. Brilliantly written and researched. Some may think the incremental approach to abortion legislature will leave out someone like myself, conceived in rape. But one should never say, “If I can’t put everyone in the boat, I will rescue none.” Verdict for America draws wisdom from America’s past for creative ideas needed to overcome our tumultuous and very near future.

I can’t think of a more noble, honest and passionate person to write about real solutions for America right now than Bill Ponath. I know others will speak of his experience as a lawyer and critical thinker, but I would like to speak of his integrity and character of heart and spirit. Verdict for America gives real answers in a world where every wind of political and religious doctrine is being thrown at Americans. He is a true genius in analyzing the facts and decimating the hype of media “sound bites”. I highly recommend his book and believe he has eminent truth we desperately need for 21stcentury America.
