Here's the abstract:
In the field of evangelical Christian romance fiction, there is a little-known subset of novels about abortion. In general, prolife proponents fall into two camps: those who condemn any pregnancy termination as murder, and those who argue for compassion for women who turn to abortion. This essay analyzes the use of popular prolife tropes about the psychological and medical harms of abortion in Francine Rivers's The Atonement Child. Rivers's story about a pregnancy from rape perpetuates abortion myths and offers a fairy tale picture to her female Christian readers who statistically make up the largest segment of those getting abortions today.
