PRLog - Feb. 4, 2012 - HULL, U.K. -- In the wake of the announcement by Susan G. Komen that they were pulling grants from Planned Parenthood for breast screening, popular Romance author Jessica L. Degarmo whose books include 'Hooking Up', 'The Storm Within', 'How To Meet A Guy At The Supermarket' and 'Decisions' has asked her publisher, Night Publishing, that $1 on the sale of all copies of her book 'Six Weeks' should be paid over as a charitable donation to Planned Parenthood.
Six Weeks by Jessica Degarmo
'Six Weeks' itself is about the agonising decision its young heroine, Imogen, has to make when she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. Her personal circumstances make it very difficult for her to keep the baby, so should be offer it up for adoption or go for an abortion.
'Six Weeks' is therefore targeted at the issues Planned Parenthood is addressing in real life.
As one review of the book on Amazon observed recently: 'This story hits home for many reasons. How many young ladies unexpectedly become pregnant? How many are in a situation to be able to handle it, by way of money or living conditions and so on? This story raises many questions as you walk through Immy's home life and the decision she needs to make within six weeks. A choice needs to be made. Keep the baby, adoption or even abortion. This story walks you through each choice, through Immy's eyes. What would you do if you had her life? I strongly believe all young ladies should read this book and it should be required reading for all high school parenting classes.'
