My name is Michael Spielman. Combatting abortion has been my full-time vocation since 1999, first with the Center for Bio-ethical Reform and then as director of Abort73.com—which launched in 2005. The Abort73 website offers the most comprehensive and accessible “Case Against Abortion” in the English-speaking world. But the Abort73 Substack offers an even deeper dive into the ethics and impact of abortion. In addition to a curated collection of my long-form articles, the Audio Abort73 podcast provides spoken versions of those same articles. It’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t have the time or inclination to read but still wants access to this front-line analysis. I’ll be adding new recorded versions of past articles on a semi-weekly basis. Subscribing will automatically let you know whenever a new one is available. Nice, right?

Here’s some more about me. I grew up in Los Angeles, graduated from Washington State University in 1997 and married the lovely Carrie Michelle in 2001. We have three children—Seth (02), Melanie (03), and Jax (13)—and currently reside in Surfside Beach, South Carolina.
