Preamble

Scholarly, analytical discussion of abortion. Provides facts, information,
and opinions on abortion from a variety of sources. Discusses the problems
 that cause abortions, and offers new and innovative solutions for resolving
the abortion conflict.  Evaluates  current developments  on such issues as
partial-birth abortion, breast cancer, Planned Parenthood funding, RU-486,
CEDAW, SCHIP, ANDA, the elections, politics,  the arrest of James Kopp for
 the murder of Doctor Barnett Slepian, the Laci and Connor Peterson murders,
judicial nominations, and President Bushís influence.                     

 Examines the arguments/views on both sides of the abortion debate, pro-life
and pro-choice. Provides reference material, and help for crisis pregnancy
and Post Abortion Stress Syndrome. Because this document has no organizat-
ional affiliations to promote,  and contains numerous references  to other
web sites and sources, it is an excellent place to start a study of abort-
ion.  It has also evolved into a center  for the  best current thinking on
the topic of abortion,  including analyses of the health risks.  It brings
all  the information  together  in one place.  You should be able to  find
everything you need here.  If youíre a voter,  make a difference by check-
ing out the election section.                                             

 Some of the ideas presented here have been implemented since their original
posting to the internet.  However,  I have no way of ascertaining for sure
how influential these writings were to that implementation Ė although this
tract has been widely distributed to those involved since its inception.  
    

 
Preface
 
It was a nondescript but official looking envelope, from a sender I didnít
recognize. I wondered why they would be writing me.  I opened the envelope
and  stared  with disbelief  at the  contents,  trying to  comprehend  the
implications.  Gradually I grasped that it was a letter of acceptance from
the University of California.  And not only had I been accepted,  but they
had offered me a full scholarship,  making it possible  for me to actually
attend. Of course Iíd filled out the necessary forms and sent them in; but
then  Iíd forgotten  about it.  It hadnít  occurred to me  that I might be
accepted, or what the ramifications would be.  There seemed to be only one
acceptable action  to take.  So that fall  I turned in my active Teamsters
Union card for an inactive one Ė just in case I should ever need it again.
Then  I loaded  everything I owned  into my car,  pulled up  my Midwestern
roots, and headed west.                                                   

Fast-forward  30 years plus.  I came off the project I had been working on
in  December  of 1999.  In January  of 2000  I started looking for my next
assignment. It didnít come as a big surprise that the market was not look-
ing good.  The technology skills  that had sustained me  for so many years
seemed to be becoming more and more obsolete. After testing the waters for
just two weeks,  I came to  a startling  conclusion;  and experienced that
same feeling I had had when I opened that letter so many years ago.  I was
at another crossroads in my life;  and decided to retrain myself  in newer
technologies Ė specifically  in  web related,  and  web site  development,
skills,  which seemed to be  a rapidly expanding field.  So  I bought some
books, signed up for some classes, and essentially went back to school.   

However, I saw more than just the technology. And I didnít see myself mak-
ing  a fortune  on the internet.  What I saw  was a  giant printing press,
where  almost anyone  could publish  just like  Benjamin Franklin,  Thomas
Paine,  or Martin Luther;  and compete in the world of ideas  worldwide at
 very little cost and without having to get past any gatekeepers. You didnít
have to  have  significant capital,  and you didnít have to  spend decades
trying to work your way up  in an organization;  or struggle to build your
own organization.  No boss or publisher  could say I donít like you,  or I
donít like your work, or I donít agree with your idea, or I think youíre a
threat to me. You were free to compete unencumbered with these restraints,
letting the response  from your potential internet audience  determine how
well received and effective your message was, and how great your influence
would be. And I had a cause very much in mind.                            

It took me  about 4 months  to get  to the point  where  I thought I could
build worthwhile, sophisticated web sites. And while I studied and attend-
ed classes I also began writing down notes on what I wanted to include and
say on my website. Building the web site turned out to be relatively easy;
but it took about 3 Ĺ months, working essentially full time, to create the
content for the site.  At the time  I finally got it up  and online it was
about 90,000 bytes  (alphanumeric characters).  So then I went to a search
engine,  entered  ďabortionĒ,  and immediately discovered  that there were
3,000 other web sites on the same topic ahead of my ďgreat ideaĒ. If I had
checked first, I probably never would have done it.  So I went on to build
other web sites,  but as new events unfolded, I found myself going back to
that original one to add to it.

Introduction
 
One  advance requirement  I set for myself  was that I didnít want to just
 ďrant and raveĒ on the topic. To the best of my ability I would try to give
both sides  of the  controversy . Also,  I would take a reasoned,  logical
approach,  and support my contentions  with facts and evidence  as much as
possible.                                                                 

 But it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I approached the task,
because of the atmosphere I perceived  surrounding the Clinton presidency.
My assessment  of the administration  was that they didnít hesitate to use
the power of the office Ė that is,  intimidation and force Ė to play hard-
ball with people who didnít share their outlook. But this feeling dissipa-
ted considerably when I actually started exploring the topic on the inter-
net  and found  sites  like ďAbortion is MurderĒ  that made mine look very
mild and temperate in comparison.                                         

Since it was written over a considerable length of time,  you can also see
my writing skills develop, from rather awkward at first, to eventually be-
coming more fluid.  It starts out with what may seem obvious to some, then
becomes more sophisticated as it goes along.  For others, it may represent
a first look,  and understanding,  of what lurks just below the surface of
the debate.                                                               

As I mentioned,  as time went by,  I seemed drawn back to it by additional
insights Ė even though  I was focusing on other tasks at the time.  But as
 spring of the first year approached Ė approximately 6 months into existence
 Ė I hit a peak  of 44 visitors  in one day  and then tapered off  to only
having a daily audience in the single digits. The high day resulted mostly
from my contacts with related organizations, and the lower days would have
been even lower  if it hadnít been for a few referrals  from a like minded
organization that didnít have a web site.                                 

At first I suspected I might be being blocked. So I stocked up on blocking
programs to check it out.  But by following my trackers,  and listening to
my wife,  who is a school teacher,  I began to understand that my site was
seasonal.  That is,  that not only were a lot of people on vacation in the
summertime,  but school was out,  and a large portion  of my visitors were
students who found my site to be a valuable resource for writing reports. 

But with such a small audience, I began to wonder whether it was worth the
effort, and what role it might play.  So I began to think in terms of what
niche  it could fill.  But as I mulled it  over I continued to add  to the
 site, and came to some conclusions. First of all, I thought it was a worth-
while thing to be doing.  And if students found it to be useful,  I should
try to cater to them somewhat.                                            

Since I could see from my trackers  that my student audience  began at the
grade school level,  I would assume  that they knew very little  about the
topic, just by virtue of not having been around very long.  And my college
audience would probably be  largely scornful of religion Ė or so I thought
 Ė so I would be careful to keep my site secular.  I didnít want to do the
same thing other people were doing, and it seemed like the other web sites
and organizations were mostly faith based.  I hoped those faith-based org-
anizations would appreciate that I could reach people they couldnít.      

So  I would try to  spell everything out  and keep the site non-religious.
But what else?  I had noticed that  there didnít seem to be a whole lot of
 cooperation between the different organizations. In fact, there was actual-
 ly some animosity that I could detect, in some cases. Plus there was no one
 place you could go to get a complete picture of what was going on. So I de-
 cided my site would be an aggregator of information. And what I didnít want
 to put directly on my site, I would link to and give a description of. Then
people could find just about anything they needed in one place or at least
where to find it quickly and easily.                                      

I felt strongly that the day to day news was very important,  but a lot of
other places  were already at least trying  to do that;  and I felt that I
wouldnít be able to  keep up with  all of it.  But it kept ending up on my
web site anyway, because I placed such a high degree of importance in cur-
rent events, and eventually it evolved into something different.          

Hereís the problem. The major media report as little as possible on abort-
ion.  To a certain extent this is a form of censorship, by excluding these
events from their reporting. But itís probably also due to it being such a
controversial subject;  and that a lot of people donít want to either hear
or see anything about it.  I know how and where to go to get the news, but
the vast majority of people  wouldnít know that even if they wanted to.  I
know at least one source  that specializes in that type of reporting,  but
they include a lot of things  that I donít consider  to really be abortion
related (e.g.,  cloning,  stem cell research, etc., etc.)  Plus,  a lot of
people, especially younger people, donít follow the daily news.  For them,
itís as if the event never occurred.                                      

 So I decided I would only report what I considered to be important abortion
related news, and I would use it to educate and make a point. Some times I
just let the news articles make the point by themselves,  and I donít feel
 any commentary is necessary from me. Other times I interpret and add to the
 reports to be sure the point isnít missed. I especially liked this approach
because itís more authoritative than just me, alone, saying it. As you get
deeper into the book you will find a lot of this going on in certain chap-
ters. Rest assured, itís all there for a reason, itís not just filler.  If
it seems to drag a little,  or be repetitive,  you can be sure itís a lead
in for something interesting and important. I also try to use a variety of
sources to reenforce the veracity of the information.                     

Moreover,  I see  the book  as being both contemporary,  and  a historical
record of a pivotal time in our nationís history.  As such, in addition to
being organized by topic,  there is a chronological sub-organization.  Our
daily news is here today, gone tomorrow, just one snapshot of a continuing
occurrence.  In my book  you can get  the complete picture  of whatís been
going on  over time,  by bringing together  related material  from diverse
sources,  organizations,  and events Ė in case you originally missed parts
of it.  Plus,  in addition  to being comprehensive,  I provide analysis of
whatís been happening, and insights into why itís related and why itís im-
portant.  I weave together this information from different sources to give
you a clearer and more complete picture;  so that  at some point  you will
see  not just the trees,  but the entire forest.  And youíll learn all the
sources I use,  so you can keep up on developments on your own,  if thatís
what you choose to do.                                                    

 So, ultimately, I created a niche that nobody else was serving. As the fall
 semester (or quarter) got underway, my traffic started to improve somewhat.
Then,  I got a break.  Somebody at a much busier university web site found
 mine, liked it, and linked to me. I linked back, but decided not to contact
them.  I was afraid of doing or saying something  that might upset my good
 fortune. It was a dependable source of visitors when school was in session.
 
Marketing on the internet  is a moving target,  and as things continued to
change, I decided to change, too. I would judiciously pay for inclusion in
some search engines if I liked their plan.  My choices made an immediately
noticeable difference.  I constantly followed  where my visitors came from
and how they found my site.                                               

 A tracker (remote software for statistics on your visitors) that I had used
when I started out  and that I especially liked  but had essentially self-
destructed  with a software change  resuscitated itself  providing me with
better  information  on my traffic.  At some point,  with this  additional
information,  I seemed to start to think  like the search engines.  I made
changes to my web site  that had what I thought were a major impact.  Late
to the party, nevertheless, suddenly, my web site was no longer insignifi-
cant. I had as much influence as a whole slew of college professors. I saw
the importance of the 2002 elections early,  and jumped in,  following the
key candidates early in the year, and high up in my web page, where it was
more likely  to be noticed.  Election week,  and election day,  I had more
visitors than ever before.  I had visitors not just from public and higher
education,  but from house.gov  and senate.gov  and state governments  and
think tanks and corporations and every foreign country imaginable.        

I consider this book the best place to go for a thorough course  on the a-
 bortion dilemma, and I think you will agree after you go through it. People
new to the controversy will find it an invaluable resource,  and everybody
 can, and will, learn from it. It includes a large amount of text that never
made it onto the web site,  simply because it seemed like too much work to
do gratis. You can read this book and become an expert on the topic.      

Practically everything you need to know  is either here  or the book tells
you  where to go to get it.  You will see most of the arguments here Ė and
the counter-arguments.  Then the book will tell you how to use the website
to get the scoop  on the latest developments  (The website evolved into an
entity where it is very difficult  to find specific information.  The book
mostly solves that problem).  Even if you think you know quite a lot about
the issue, everybody will find things they didnít know here.  For example,
 probably very few people know that Joe Lieberman was excommunicated because
of his views on abortion.  President George W. Bush  attends the Methodist
church.  But did you know  that while the Methodist Church officially con-
dones abortion,  the President  is a Christian Conservative?  You probably
couldnít get the President  to tell you that,  but after reading this book
that will be about the only conclusion a rational person could come to.   

In short, this book is packed with information on the abortion issue. Itís
a treasure chest of facts and views, and certainly not just my opinions. I
had one visitor tell me that she liked the parts I wrote best. That really
puzzled me,  because I think  a lot of the sources  I quoted say it better
than I do.  So I guess youíll  just have to decide  that for yourself.  It
also presents the evidence that backs up the conclusions,  so that you can
come to your own decisions.  In fact,  I present you  with the information
you need, and encourage people to do their own thinking on the subject.   

Itís also a reference source. For example, if you or somebody you know are
thinking about  whether to get an abortion  right away,  itís hard to beat
the  Pregnancy Resources chapter.  Or if you already have had an abortion,
and it was a bad scene  that you just canít seem to  get out of your mind,
thereís the chapter called  Post Abortion Stress Syndrome,  with both pro-
life  and pro-choice resources Ė whichever you feel most comfortable with.
The quotations are carefully selected  to make and reenforce a point,  im-
part information,  bring together  pieces of information  to give  a  more
complete picture, and to provide proof for assertions made.  Everything is
there for a purpose.  There are times when just the weight of the evidence
makes the conclusion clear. And to keep a serious subject from getting too
dull there are always more interesting lines not too far away. I also have
a sense of humor;  but if I didnít tell you that  ahead of time  you might
miss it,  so be on the lookout for it.  And itís  also  a how to manual in
case you should want to get more personally involved.                     

In addition, for the politically minded, it contains a very good series of
 chapters on the 2002 elections Ė at least on the candidates who were invol-
ved in the abortion controversy.  Itís information that you would probably
have trouble finding elsewhere.  I know I had some difficulty Ė especially
the information after the election.  Several weeks  after the election was
over I was still trying to fill in the blanks, but I finally found time to
do it to my satisfaction. I said it was too much work to do again, but Iím
starting to get  2004 campaign literature  in the mail already,  and maybe
Iíll just do it differently  so itís not quite so much work,  for the 2004
elections.                                                                

 The chapters about my debate on about.com are kind of like a bonus exercise
for  the most serious students.  Itís very informative,  and would be very
worthwhile to read for someone who is planning to debate the subject.  But
itís also very drawn out, because of the way I approached it,  and the way
I approached it  is part of what you learn from it.  My opponents conceded
very little,  and you canít really have  a good give and take  exchange of
ideas in that mode.  I was more than willing to make some concessions,  to
give up some ground,  for the purpose of reaching some agreements  in some
areas where I could see we did agree;  but when I saw how my opponents ap-
proached it, I gave up on being Mr. Congeniality. Iíd never really debated
much until I got my web site up and running on the internet, and I went to
the forums mainly in an attempt to attract more visitors to my site. But I
eventually got pulled in to the action. Actually, I became the action. Far
too late in life  I learned I should have become a lawyer.  As I perceived
the  general approach used,  one person  would give  their arguments  on a
topic, the other would give theirs,  and anybody else who wanted to  could
chime in. Then that would be the end of it.                               

 However, that didnít seem to be good enough for me. I was not content until
I had destroyed my opponents' comeback arguments too.  Since they wouldnít
concede anything,  that meant  we could be locked  in a deadly embrace for
some time.  When one person eventually wimped out because they were start-
ing to look  too compromised,  their handlers  just sent in a replacement.
But each time around,  I developed  new tactics,  and thatís why I believe
that it was worthwhile  to include so much of it,  even though often times
I was staring down the same arguments  they had presented before.  Itís an
interesting story in itself.                                              

So now we come to the question of why you should buy a book that was built
around a web site that you can visit on the internet for free.  Well,  one
of the reasons,  is that, for me at least, personal sacrifice doesnít seem
to be the ultimate motivator.  I had a lot of information  just sitting on
my hard drive that I thought was just too much trouble, just too time con-
suming, to put on my web site for free. Then when I started to think about
publishing  the book,  I saw  how much value that information could add to
the book.  So, as nearly as I can calculate, thereís roughly 32% more mat-
erial in the book than on the web site (not counting the graphic in a sub-
directory there). But thereís also another important reason.  I approached
the two undertakings from very different perspectives.  In the case of the
web site my goal was to get people to read the entire document,  so I made
very little effort  to make it easy  to find things there.  Itís basically
one continuous tract, or I guess two tracts, of reading materials.        

On the other hand,  when I first thought about doing the book,  I realized
right away  that very few people  would want to buy a book like that Ė and
rightfully so.  So, in addition to the new material, the book is all about
organization and making it as easy as possible to find things.  And with a
book you donít feel like you have to  read it all at one time  because you
might not be able to find your place again, like you would feel on my web-
site.  So,  a book  you can read  at your convenience.  You can take it to
lunch,  you can read it on the train if you commute to work,  you can read
it in bed before you go to sleep  (although I donít recommend this because
it might be hard to put down).  You can  share it with friends,  and refer
back to it whenever you like;  and if youíre like me, put it on a shelf as
an addition to your collection. Finally, I formatted parts of the book my-
self, and as I went along I added additional insights that I didnít bother
to include in the web site version. Then I added an extensive index.      

But why did I bother to write the book? To explain that, I have to go back
to my personal odyssey.  After about two years of study, in March of 2002,
I felt I was ready to  enter the brave new world  of web site construction
 (for pay). So I started casting about for openings. What I soon discovered,
of course,  was the ďtech wreckĒ.  There was a better chance of finding an
opening with my old skills,  by that time,  than my new ones,  and neither
approach really worked.                                                   

 Even worse, I couldnít even get an interview. So I had read in my contract-
or magazine about a person who suggested finding another source of income,
like the utility programs  he had written  and was selling.  I didnít have
any programs to sell, but it did start me thinking about what I might have
 that was saleable, and could generate some income. There was only one thing
I could come up with. Iíd thought briefly about asking for donations on my
web site like charitable organizations do. Charitable organization or not,
I was convinced  that would never generate much of anything.  So I decided
to try to make the conversion from selfless moral crusader to petty capit-
alist and have a best selling book published.  ďPublish or perishĒ was be-
ginning to have real life meaning for me.                                 

Interestingly enough, I could never, never, never, have sat down and writ-
ten this book without having first created the website.  And I never would
have even thought  about writing the book  if I had been able to find work
in the fields  I had trained for.  So I canít help wonder  if thereís some
divine providence at work, that I was supposed to do this. I feel like the
night  I worked until past 5 a.m. on my web site,  and it was almost done,
and the sun was coming up,  and I cried.  I cried  because I no longer be-
lieved that I was doing it alone.                                         

Over four years in the making.  I invite you to take this journey with me.
And hereís my sales pitch Ė please buy this book.  Not just for me, but if
youíve read this far,  you owe it  to yourself.  I will try to price it so
itís easily affordable.  And itís grown from that initial 90,000 bytes, to
over 2,500,000 bytes (alphanumeric characters).

Testimonials & Comments


"Brilliantly written. Brilliantly correct. I only hope that people read,
understand and have the courage to act on what they believe." - Keily   


"Hi!  What a incredible body of work!!!!!  Congrats on your awards.
Keep up the great work!! Information helps dispel so much." Barbara


"I was unable to finish reading  your incredibly comprehensive website,
but I promise you that I will return to it time and time again to read,
learn,  and cite as a source for my research.  Anyway,  I would like to
thank you  for building your website -- one well equipt  with resources
as it is with good reasoning". Vanissa Chan                            


"AWESOME!  GREAT!  PLEEEEEEEEEEASE FIND WAYS  TO GET THIS OUT TO
THE PUBLIC MORE! GOD BLESS! YOU ARE SO CREDIBLE" JENNIFER Chirdo


"Having devoted myself in the early 70's to becoming intimately familiar
with all aspects of abortion, your project taught me a surprising number
of VERY useful facts, for which I'm grateful. Thanks much"              
George J. Cauldwell, APO, NYPD                                          


"COMMENTS:  This is a fantastic site, providing a lot  of information
and  views against abortion.  I am completely against abortion myself
and it is nice  to hear  what someone else with the same views has to
say. Also, thank you for helping me with my English coursework! Great
site,  one change that would be worthwhile  is splitting  the mass of
text up  by using links to each small section of text.  I am sure you
have made  a great impact  on a lot  of people  and have  undoubtedly
changed the minds of people considering abortion. Well done."        


"hello, thank you so much for all this information...I found out so
many things that i never would of even thought about,  like medical
issues and stuff. well thanks, from, nikki"                        


"COMMENTS:  I'm am writing a persuasive report for my Honor's 11
English class.  I can not tell you  how glad  I was to find this
site.  At first I was skepitcal about what the website was going
to say, but I now have an idea of how to make my paper stronger.
You see, I'm taking the negitive arguement on abortion, while my
best friend  has the affirmative.  Thank you so much for putting
into writing what so many people have failed to do."            


"COMMENTS: I was inspired by what you had to say  and I 'get it'
also.  Someone once said  'There are none  that are so blind  as
those that will not see.'  And that's what I think  we have here
with abortion, the 'I've made up my mind - don't confuse me with
the facts.'  scenario.  It has been  a privilege  to share  your
thoughts  and I pray with you that we 'army' of pro-lifers (pro-
LIVING!) will eventually win  this war against humanity.  It's a
huge conspiracy of misinformation,  silence and lies.  Bless you
for  your no-nonsense,  tell it  how it is  stand.  Best wishes,
Sandra Rickell."                                                


"COMMENTS: I agree with most and learned quite a bit.
Thank you.  I would  suggest  that you  organize your
content a bit better  on your site.  If your homepage
is 368 pages long,  something has gone awry.  Content
organization  and  links  (information  design/site  
mapping, whatever you'd like to call it)."           
 
"I took your suggestion, and turned the web site into
a book with 70 chapters and a 100 page index.  Except
that there's  quite a lot in the book  that wasn't on
the web site. Thanks, Intecon"                       


"My friend Nicholas Intecon in Illinois,  who has managed and run
http://www.aboutabortions.com/  for many years,  always  insisted
that  Logic,  Fairness,  and  Civility  govern  his content. Now,
he has turned that  gargantuan project  into a well-organized and
 fully indexed book - in multiple formats - that deserves publicity
way beyond most tonnage on the 'New Releases' shelves.  He'd been
working on it  for quite some time  (even to the detriment of his
friends),  so I welcomed the attached  'birth announcement'  with
appropriate joy and relief. Please visit his new site". George J.
Cauldwell (George and I became friends after he left a comment at
my web site.)                                                    


 "COMMENTS: This is one of the absolute most comprehensive articles
on the issue of abortions I have found while surfing the web. The
 only problem with it is that the material is so dense and that the
presentation of the material is in need of some help. Appropriate
 headings and a fixed outline on the far left-hand side of the site
would make  this site  ideal. Again  the material  is  absolutely
 wonderful but the presentation of the material makes the website a
bit difficult to navigate if your looking for certain information
 (and that might cause visitors to leave the website after not hav-
ing looked at much of the content which is magnificient)."       
 
"Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions.  There is a way a-
round the  monolithic nature of the site.  The corresponding book
is very well organized,  and even has an index.  It's just  $8.95
for the Ebook,  and I recently fixed the link  to the publisher's
site where you can download it."

A Conservative Commentary on Abortion
Author Publishes Series of Internet Posts from Web Site
 
DOWNERS GROVE,  Ill.  -  The new book,  Abortion!  Pros and Cons:
Arguments,  Views,  Facts  &  Information  (now available through
AuthorHouse),  by  "Intecon"  offers a detailed, pro-life look at
abortion and the many social issues related to this practice.    
 
This in-depth analysis  tackles everything  from the beginning of
life in the womb to political elections and court battles.       
 
Intecon's  book  includes  years  of  posts  to  his  web  site, 
www.aboutabortions.com.  It  quotes  noted  leaders,  cites news 
reports  and offers his passionate views on the ongoing controv- 
ersy. Intecon's strong pro-life stance is highlighted throughout 
the book,  offering  a summation  of  the opinions and arguments 
presented by anti-abortion citizens.                             
 
Intecon walks through the biological stages of fetal development,
explaining his opinion  that human life begins at conception.  He
also delves into medical issues related to abortion,  such as the
theory that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer  and the
onset of depression in some women.                               
 
Social and political issues are also covered thoroughly.  Intecon
cites the words of prominent people  such as Ronald Reagan,  Alan
Keyes and Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortion doctor who now
 speaks out against the practice. Many of the news reports detailed
in the book deal with court battles over the legality of abortion
at all stages and about the campaigns of national pro-life groups
and  political leaders.  Intecon  analyzes  other  social  issues
  inextricably linked to the abortion debate, such as father's rights
and euthanasia.  He  also includes  an extensive list  of contact
information  for pro-life organizations  and pregnancy assistance
groups.                                                          
 
 Throughout the book, Intecon presents some positions of pro-choice
 advocates and offers his reasons why he thinks their arguments are
faulty.                                                          
 
 "The readers will be engrossed and spellbound as they are drawn in
 deeper and deeper by the real life plot twists and turns and their
expanding understanding of this dramatic issue  with its hosts of
heroes  and villains  (and) at the same time  it gives people  an
in-depth understanding of this serious issue," the author writes.
 
After attending  the University of California  and working in the
computer field  for more than 30 years,  Intecon began working in
Web site development.
