13. “The Cider House Rules”, John Irving

This last half of the book starts hitting it hard with the pro-abortion access rhetoric which is… really compelling. Basically, Homer and Larch agree that the “products of conception” represents a life, but Larch insists that you can make an orphan or you can make an abortion and that no one has the right to force a person in to a situation where they feel they need to seek out illegal or dangerous abortion. Homer says towards the end that he agrees that abortions should be legal, just that he never wants to perform one. Larch tells him to get his head out of his ass– it’s all the L-rd’s work to Larch.
