review No Easy Choice: A Story of Disability, Parenthood, and Faith in an Age of Advanced Reproduction 103 Join or create book clubs · 3 free download characters No Easy Choice: A Story of Disability, Parenthood, and Faith in an Age of Advanced Reproduction In No Easy Choice Ellen Painter Dollar tells her gut wrenching story of living with osteogenesis imperfecta OIa disabling genetic bone disorder that was passed down to her first childand deciding whether to conceive a second child who would not have OI using assisted reproduction Her story brings to light the ethical dilemmas surrounding advanced reproductive technologies What do procedures such as in vitro fertilization IVF and preimplantation genetic diagnosis PGD say about how we define human worth If we avoid such procedures are we permitting the suffering of our children How do we identify a good life in a consumer society that values appearance success health and perfection Dollar considers multiple sides of the debate refusing to accept the matter as simply black and white Her book will help parents who want to understand and make good decisions about assisted reproduction as well as those who support and counsel them including pastors and medical professionals. This is an unusual book in that it approaches ethical issues from the perspective of someone having to contend with a genetic condition herself and in her family What makes it unusual and immensely helpful is that she engages with theologians and Christian writers against this background In this way she throws a great deal of light on preimplantation genetic diagnosis PGD as she and her husband agonize over whether they should utilize PGD to avoid having another child with osteogenesis imperfecta OI Her grappling with a wide array of theological input is impressive as her honesty and emotional involvement throw light on the agonizingly complex nature of the ethical issues that follow in the wake of the technological tools now available in the reproductive area The author is never willing to accept glib answers and her response to her own family s predicament throws light onto these never easy to resolve dilemmas

This book is valuable in several ways First the writer never imposes her views as the only right view on assisted reproduction Rather she thoroughly and compassionately presents many of the pro s and con s of using assisted reproduction in an attempt to conceive a healthy baby In doing so she weaves in her personal story of investigating preimplantation genetic diagnosis and boy does she investigate For months she considers and weighs the ethics of using this technology and whether it s the right thing to do for society for her family and for her baby Along with her story she also shares the views of friends writers pastors and ethicistsSecond and what made me so cherish the book was Painter Dollar s story of what it s like to be a woman with a physical disability as well as a wife and a mother Such stories aren t told enough Painter Dollar s honest anecdotes about living with a genetic bone disorder will touch a chord with anyone who considers herself different from what society considers the ideal Her stories let us know thank God that we re not alone And we can succeed My favorite line from this poignant book A new ability to see my body as capable and worthy beautiful and powerful is one of the surprise gifts of motherhood What mother can t relate to that
