She is the author of several books and articles including Sexuality and Authority in the Catholic Church, The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church and The Theology of the Passion of the Christ—a commentary on Gibson’s film-The Passion of the Christ. Her most recent book is called: Abandoned—The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars－the historical narrative of pro-life activism－called by some the best book ever written on abortion.
In 2008 Dr. Miller led the discovery of bio-hazard waste, patient records, and the remains of aborted babies in Detroit-area abortion clinic trash containers that resulted in formal investigations by Michigan state regulatory agencies and criminal charges being brought against the Woman Care abortion facilities by the Oakland County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. In 2011 she helped shut down the Womans Choice abortion clinics in Michigan. More recently, Dr. Miller led the charge against the opening of the Planned Parenthood abortion mega-clinic in Auburn Hills, MI. In 2012, after an 18-months-long effort, her group successfully kept the Planned Parenthood clinic from opening!
Dr. Miller is married to Edmund Miller—founder of Guadalupe Partners, serving women with unplanned pregnancies in the Metro Detroit area— and is the mother of three beautiful children, Bernadette, Patrick and Joseph.
