Searching for Pro-Life Fiction

It may be an interesting commentary on our times--and the pro-life movement--that this is the first piece I've ever read that calls artists to use their craft and gifts to produce pro-life art: poetry, fiction, etc. (The reason I say "may be" is that just because I haven't read it doesn't mean it doesn't exist!)

I pray that God would use Joseph Bottum's post to spur on aspiring artists to use their creativity in this way.

Incidentally, I was thinking about just this idea the other night. After watching the film "Cider House Rules," I yearned for someone to write a short story, film, or novel that eloquently made the case for life, in the way that Cider House Rules did for abortion.
