The second book we almost finished as well is Dirty Work by Gabriel Weston. A story of a female surgeon, Nancy, who is suspended from work after she freezes in the operating room. Nancy performs abortions. It's a short book but very powerful and offers the other side of the story from the doctor's point of view.
