Abduction: How Liberalism Steals our Children's Hearts and Minds

Everyday children are being inundated with messages that stand in opposition to traditional family values. Moral relativism and secular progressivism are waging an all-out war for the moral integrity of America's children. Abduction: How Liberalism Steals out Children's Hearts and Minds issues an Amber Alert for the souls and minds of America's youth. The book exposes how the liberal Left seeks to brainwash our children. It places a spotlight on the corruption that permeates the entertainment, educational, and judicial systems of our nation.

Join Dr. Carol M. Swain as she informs parents, teachers, and policymakers on what is happening right under their noses and offers a practical guide for fighting back against those who would destroy the moral compasses of our children
