Dirty Work by Gabriel Weston - "Controversial in subject matter but with a muted and nuanced delivery, Gabriel Weston’s Dirty Work examines the inner life and quiet motivations of an accomplished surgeon and abortion provider in the aftermath of a near-fatal surgery, during the medical hearing that will decide her career. Weston skilfully escapes rendering a pro or con verdict on the big issue, but instead reveals matter of the heart. "

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.
