review Dirty Work Dirty Work summary ¾ 8 Gabriel Weston ½ 8 read & download Ption can only come through telling a tale that nobody wants to hearGabriel Weston author of the acclaimed Direct Red A Surgeon s Story winner of the PEN Ackerley Prize has written an extraordinarily moving and powerful novel about a female doctor who performs abortion. I would like to preface my review with the information that I am a strong supporter of a woman s right to choose to have an abortion or not And I find much of the tactics and rhetoric of the pro life movement to be very distasteful and ignorant of basic medical and biological facts And yet there still is something about abortions that are troubling to me and I feel that it is important to understand all of the parameters of this procedure both medically and emotionally I found this short n I would like to preface my review with the information that I am a strong supporter of a woman s right to choose to have an abortion or not And I find much of the tactics and rhetoric of the pro life movement to be very distasteful and ignorant of basic medical and biological facts And yet there still is something about abortions that are troubling to me and I feel that it is important to understand all of the parameters of this procedure both medically and emotionally I found this short novel to be very provocative and emotionally rich Although the author is clearly pro choice the main character as much as states that as clear as a bell she also realizes that there can be much trauma around having the procedure and it can have a significant emotional impact on various people I had a friend who had had an abortion and was strongly pro choice We went to a science museum where there was a display showing a developing fetus and she had to leave the room because of how negatively affected she was by it She never fully regretted having the abortion yet she still had an emotional reaction to being visually reminded of it This is how I look at this book The narrator realizes how important the procedure of abortion is to the well being of many women And she also realizes that there is a human element to the fetus that is removed and subseuently destroyed No it is not taking a life and it is not a sentient being that is being removed But it sure lookslike a human being than a kidney does And the narrator was one who was emotionally affected by this fact and was temporarily unable to perform her duties as an abortion doctor because she had never really dealt with it The novel is very well written with a back story of the narrator being presented as she waits to hear the verdict of what will happen to her after a patient of hers almost dies due to her inaction There was a point in the book where I was afraid that the author was going to wade into pro life territory but IMHO I don t think she did Lionel Shriver one of my favorite authors described this novel as brave I couldn t agree
