“Tom Glessner's engaging new book takes the reader on a reflective journey through the nature, sanctity, and rights of all human life.” – Ben Johnson, U.S. Bureau Chief of

Attorney and women’s health advocate Thomas A. Glessner will debut his newest book, "Created Equal: Reflections on the Inalienable Right to Life," on Monday, July 25.

Already garnering praise from national leaders, "Created Equal" makes the case that the rights of the unborn were established in our nation’s founding documents.

A Supreme Court bar member and licensed attorney since 1977, Glessner is the President of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), a national legal advocacy organization supporting the work of prolife pregnancy resource centers and medical clinics. NIFLA has more 1,350 member PRCs/PMCs in all fifty states.

According to Glessner, who is also a member of the bar associations for the states of Virginia and Washington, “This book discusses the foundational roots of America as set forth in the Declaration of Independence and how such foundational principles have been violated by the American tolerance for abortion on demand.”

Leaders across the nation are praising "Created Equal," which takes the reader through a compelling legal examination demonstrating that the Founding Fathers extended human rights to unborn children 197 years before Roe v. Wade.

“'Created Equal' is an essential resource for anyone who wants to know the true meaning, and Author, of mankind's equality,” said Ben Johnson, U.S. Bureau Chief of

According to former presidential candidate and President of Campaign for Working Families Gary Bauer, “Anyone who reads this book will be forced to reflect on the meaning of America, life and their own existence.”

“My friend and colleague Tom Glessner probes the seriousness of the situation America faces with abortion,” wrote National Pro-Life Religious Council President and Priests for Life National Director Father Frank Pavone in his endorsement of Created Equal. “It is more than just a ‘bad policy', abortion policy in the United States today actually imposes on us a different kind of government.”
