Uncle Tom's Clinic

Uncle Tom's Clinic is a dramatic depiction of the explosive issue of abortion in America. The gripping tale captures the reader’s heart and mind. Beginning with a powerful and insightful Preface, Uncle Tom's Clinic brings the political, moral and spiritual issues of abortion out in the open. As the story unfolds, it exposes the perfidious propaganda propping up a woman’s “right to choose” and shows the reader the truth about abortion. The dialogue is genuine enough that the reader may not even perceive that the deceitful rhetoric of abortion rights is being systematically refuted.Uncle Tom’s Clinic also weaves throughout its pages, the hopes, desires, and frustrations of one infertile couple longing to adopt a child. The narrative immediately draws the reader in and doesn’t let go. The book is truly hard to put down until it reaches an intensely emotional climax. And even then, the reader is drawn back in again until the final resolution. In short, Uncle Tom’s Clinic, like the novel written more than a century ago by Harriet Beecher Stowe, is a compelling narrative requiring the reader not only to reflect on, but also to act on, the most critical moral issue of its time.
