What if abortion was illegal in our country?  What are the ramifications if the landmark Roe v. Wade decision is overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court?  Would we solve the problem or would we create more problems?  That's the near future scenario at the heart of New York based author A. Raynor and her new political thriller "OVERTURNED!"  

The year is 2021, and with abortion once again illegal in America, a young unidentified female is found dead from an alleged “termination” in an abandoned inner city tenement. But she's not just any young woman; the dead girl is identified as the daughter of an ultra-conservative United States Senator.  Thus begins the web of intrigue, social reform and conspiracy that propels OVERTURNED! readers through the story at breakneck speed.

 "This is such a hot button issue that nearly everyone I encountered while working on the book had a strong, almost visceral reaction to the topic of abortion.  I was truly amazed at what I learned in researching OVERTURNED!" said Raynor.  "But although the book's subject matter can really make you examine your own beliefs, this is, pardon the wordplay, fertile ground for a taut political thriller taking the reader on a thought-provoking thrill ride."

Listen as host Burke Allen asks Raynor what her research for OVERTURNED! revealed about men being so heavily involved in legislating the ultimate "women's issue, how religion and faith play into the complexities of reproductive rights, what pro-life activists have told her their number one goal is, the truth behind media reports of violent and angry protests against Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics, how the book's subject matter caused her own family to request that she alter a very important part of the novel, and much more.
