- Publish Date: 1997-11-01
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: Pauline Trumpi
Pauline Trumpi's story of being drugged and raped by her physician, her consequent pregnancy, the ensuing farcical legal investigation resulting in the return of the physician's license, the surrender of her child to adoption, and the eventual reunion with her adult son is the foundation for this in-depth investigation into rape, its motivation, the victim's response, and the legal system's remedial recourse.
Trumpi studies sexual abuse committed within a practitioner-patient relationship by medical and non-medical personnel from a moral, ethical, and legal perspective, including recent court cases and their findings. Compelled by her personal holocaust, the author provides victims of rape with valuable information for holding their abuser accountable, thereby possibly preventing future abuse.
