    A few days ago I heard a very interesting lecture by Prof. Robert Cavalier
    from Pittsburgh on three interactive multimedia CD-ROMs which have been

    <http://www.routledge.com/routledge/electronic/>, s.v. "Abortion in
    America" and "A Right to Die?" Preston Covey, one of the primary people
    involved, writes very movingly about his work in applied ethics; see
