David C. Reardon, PhD, Director of the Elliot Institute
Dr. Reardon, biomedical ethicist, researcher, and director of the Elliot Institute, is widely recognized as one of the leading experts on the aftereffects of abortion on women, a field in which he has specialized since 1983. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles and books, including Aborted Women, Silent No More. Written in 1987, it has become the best-selling book on abortion’s impact on women and has been called “the most powerful book ever written on abortion.”
The Jericho Plan: Breaking Down the Walls That Prevent Post-Abortion Healing is Dr. Reardon's resource book for post-abortion healing, sermon guide, strategy for reaching out with God's love, forgiveness, and wholeness to those wounded by abortion.
