The Harm We Do: A Catholic Doctor Confronts Church, Moral, and Medical Teaching.

Also ready to enter difficult space is Joyce Poole, a retired medical practitioner. Targeting health care workers and pastoral ministers, she has written The Harm We Do: A Catholic Doctor Confronts Church, Moral, and Medical Teaching (Twenty-Third, 149 pages, $12.95 paperback).

Poole looks at contraception, sterilization, abortion, infertility and other issues. She is attentive to the fact that there is more than one way to look "at moral problems within the framework of sincere Christian conviction." She asks intelligent, well-informed questions in a way that is sure to be helpful to pastoral people.
