APPENDIX B —REFERENCES FOR FURTHER RESEARCH
American Life League
As pro-life activists gain experience in their respective fields, many will become progressively more specialized in their field(s) of activism and will become interested in topics that have a very narrow focus.
If the pro-life movement in a large city is vigorous and active, it will generally have several groups that issue newsletters or magazines on a periodic basis, and will therefore require regular and "guest" writers who have the ability to research a wide variety of topics. Eventually, there will also evolve a semi-clandestine group of activists who have the ability to perform research into the backgrounds of abortionists, pro-death political candidates, and other undesirable characters, usually for the purposes of litigation or political activism.
The field of abortion-related research is vast and fascinating, and all kinds of information can be picked up from the universe of print and electronic media that is available.
Those who like medical research may want to subscribe to the MEDLINE bulletin board, which possesses citations for more than seven million medical articles from six thousand journals, with detailed abstracts on most articles.
Pro-lifers with an affinity for legal research will find thousands of volumes in local law libraries and tens of thousands of citations on the WESTLAW and other electronic information services.
And those who like to dig into the backgrounds of abortionists will find that a complete history can be drawn up using information that is readily available to the public.
For example, if a lay person is assisting a pro-life attorney in prosecuting a malpractice suit against an abortion mill, and a question about ultrasonography came up, it would be useful to look for advice and expert witnesses from those individuals listed in the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine Membership Roster.
Background information on the offending abortionist could be gleaned from Macmillan's Directory of Medical Specialists, which covers every OB/GYN in the United States and provides each doctor's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, education, career data, date certified, type of practice, professional memberships, publications list, awards, and achievements.
If a particular team of activists was interested in surveillance and similar information-gathering methods, and suspected that a local abortionist or pro-abort politician was engaged in shady or immoral activities, they could make use of the techniques described in Lee Lapin's two-volume work on How to Get Anything on Anybody.
Anyone Can Do It.
Effective, valuable and detailed research does not require a doctorate or even a high school diploma, for that matter. All that is needed is a desire to learn and a little patience.
The information is out there. The job is to know how to find it. Experience is the best teacher in the field of information-gathering, and the only way to gain experience is to do it.
This appendix contains information on more than one hundred authoritative reference books that will be of interest to pro-life activists and researchers, and these volumes represent more than one million pages of distilled and well-classified information.
No single source can describe all or even most of the references available for even a relatively narrow field of interest. The primary purpose of this chapter is simply to give examples of the kind of reference that is available to the public. For every volume listed in this appendix, there are a dozen more that will be of interest to the conscientious researcher.
An outline of the general classifications of reference works described in this appendix is shown below.
