About the book:

What could an abortion worker and a pro-life advocate possibly have in common? Love is always the best choice. Connection at the Fence is the gripping and insightful true-life story of an unlikely relationship formed by two brave women and their amazing journey to friendship outside an abortion clinic fence. This fascinating pro-life book is a unique exploration of two opposing sides revealed, with relevant, thought-provoking issues respectfully investigated and discussed.

Shiela Miller, a pro-life advocate, reached out in non-judgmental love to Dionne Boozer, an abortion worker, and their respectful communication turned into a friendship and open discussion on pro-choice and pro-life matters. Showing that what people can have in common is greater than their racial and cultural differences, they surprisingly discovered that they agreed on two main topics, pro-lifers have the best results when they promote loving attitudes towards abortion-minded women and abortion workers, and also even more importantly, that abortion is never the best option for a pregnant mother in crisis. This book chronicles some background on abortion and the pro-life movement in their region; their backgrounds and individual stories on either side of the abortion clinic fence; how their friendship evolved; and the conclusions they formed about each other and related topics along the way.

Message from the Authors:

My name is Dionne, and I’ve been an abortion worker for 18 years. I never planned to work at an abortion clinic, it just happened. I do believe that a woman has a choice about what happens to her body, but more importantly, I also am of the belief that abortion is fundamentally wrong. Something startling occurred last year: one of the protestors outside the clinic asked me to meet with her after work for a milkshake — we ultimately became friends. And not only did we become friends, but she easily convinced me to chronicle our journey together to help educate others. The plain and simple fact is that women have so many other, better options than terminating a pregnancy through abortion.

My name is Shiela, and three years ago, God called me to be a sidewalk counselor in Greenville, S.C. I do not believe in abortion as a viable option for women. I’ve had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of women while they were driving into and out of the facility, and I’ve seen with my own eyes the haunted looks of those who have lost children to abortion. Their stories are very real and very unhappy.

Employees at the abortion clinic are not generally friendly to us, but Dionne was different. I felt the Holy Spirit tug at me to get to know her, befriend her, and eventually, write this book with her. We hope you enjoy reading the story of our journey from fence to friendship.
