April 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — When Dr. Monica Miller was released from her 33-day stay in a Michigan jail last summer, she told LifeSiteNews that jail “has its blessings.”

Miller, a veteran in the pro-life movement who has been jailed on multiple occasions, was taken away for having participated in a Red Rose Rescue, an emerging form of pro-life activism where persons enter an abortion center and council, speak with, sing to, and hand out roses to not just the women in the lobby but to clinic staff as well.

In this revealing episode of the Van Maren Show, Dr. Miller, founder and director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, speaks with Jonathon Van Maren about her start in the pro-life movement in the 1970s as a graduate student at Loyola University Chicago and Marquette University in Milwaukee. She also talks about the impact taking photographs of aborted babies and showing them to the public has had on awakening people to the horrors of abortion.

Once you see aborted baby photos the “veil is torn away,” and you “can never go back,” she says. As human beings, “we are not meant to look at” babies in this state. Their broken bodies are “a real time metaphor for the broken culture that we live in.” “I watched with my own eyes the awakening of souls” to the horror of abortion by showing photos to them. Dr Miller’s photographs can be found at

Miller’s best selling book Abandoned: The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars recounts the many experiences she had in the pro-life movement, which she shares with Van Maren. The two discuss how she went dumpster diving for aborted babies behind abortion clinics in Chicago, how she spent thousands upon thousands of hours doing sidewalk counseling outside abortion centers, and why she got involved in the fight for the unborn in the first place.
