Wendy feels abandoned and alone in a cold northeastern college town surrounded by the untroubled youth of her generation. She has escaped the bleak existence of her past caring for a father wallowing in alcoholism and self-pity, but she shares nothing in common with the carefree crowd around her. Finally convinced that her abdominal pain is the cancer that stole her beloved mother, she seeks aid and solace at the Emergency Room. Despair compounds Wendys depression when she discovers that she is carrying a child. Guilt wracks her as she struggles with her infidelities, and shame humbles her before the handsome young intern so anxious to help her. Teetering on the edge of a high cliff of helplessness, grace rescues her in the coincidence of the young intern and the miracle of the animate child within her. The faith she learns to embrace from the unborn blessing in her womb propels her from an existence of desperation to a life of unforeseen joy and promise.

Bioethics as Practice

Those who work in bioethics and the medical humanities come from many different backgrounds, such as health care, philosophy, law, the social sciences, and religious studies. The work they do also varies widely: consulting on ethical issues in patient care, working with legislatures, dealing with the media, teaching, speaking, writing and more. Writing as a participant in this developing field, Judith Andre offers a model to unify its diversity. Using the term "bioethics" broadly, to include all the medical humanities, she articulates ideals for the field, identifies its temptations and moral pitfalls, and argues for the central importance of certain virtues. Perhaps the most original of these is the virtue of choosing projects well, which demands not only broadening the field's focus but also understanding the forces that have kept it too narrow. Andre offers an imaginative analysis of the special problems presented by interdisciplinary work and discusses the intellectual virtues necessary for its success. She calls attention to the kinds of professional communities that are necessary to support good work. The book draws from interviews with many people in the field and from the findings of social scientists. It includes the author's personal reflections, several extended allegories, and philosophical analysis.
