A conversation with Julie Irwin Zimmerman, author of "A Spiritual Companion to Infertility."
Julie Irwin Zimmerman discusses the difficulties facing Catholics encountering infertility. Too often, she argues, Catholics feel bewildered by the moral implications of the choices offered by the fertility industry. In this environment, the church should do more to reach out to couples weighing these difficult matters, to listen and guide them to a life-affirming decision. Look for Zimmerman's article, "Science and the Path to Parenthood," in the July 6-13 issue.
