First, Do No Harm
Lisa Belkin

Parents fight to take their premature twins off life support...an uninsured immigrant is given the opportunity to die. Belkin, a former New York Times reporter, gives us a no-holds-barred look at medicine's ethical dilemmas through a series of gripping personal portraits at a major metropolitan hospital. Under her pen, the national debate on medical ethics takes on human form. Sit in on ethics committee meetings, meet the number-crunching insurance reps, and follow doctors and nurses as they struggle to come to terms with some of the toughest questions we face as a culture: who should live and when is life not a reasonable outcome.
