Abstract:

"In a 1982 New Orleans courtroom the best-kept secret in the world is about to unravel, and a young couple's jet set lives will change. Senior district attorney Peter Jacobs is facing the trial of a lifetime--a passionate, spiritual battle against an evil with far reaching consequences. His beloved wife Rebecca, a glamorous and driven partner at a major law firm, suddenly finds her life spun out of control and her new faith tested while facing a once in a lifetime choice. From lawyer-turned-novelist Pamela Binnings Ewen, An Accidental Life is fiction based on fact: the testimony of nurse Jill Stanek before a U.S. Congressional Committee confirming that it was routine in the hospital in which she worked for doctors to have nurses take infants born alive during abortions to a 'soiled utility room' and leave them to die. Stanek's testimony led Congress to enact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2001, a federal-only law that still does not bind state run hospitals or private clinics. The fact remains that the fate of abortion survivors is among the best-kept secrets in the world."--Page 4 of cover.
