Referred to as his "most didactic novel", ''The Cider House Rules'' (1985) is the sixth novel by Creator/{{John Irving}}. It centers around the story of [[HeartwarmingOrphan Homer Wells]], an orphan in the Maine town of St. Cloud's, and his caretakers: the resident doctor and head of the boy's division, [[FunctionalAddict Dr. Wilbur Larch]], and his two aides, [[TeamMom Nurse Angela]] and [[UnrequitedLoveLastsForever Nurse Edna]]. Dr. Larch raises Homer and trains him in obstetrics, but Homer is reluctant due to his mentor's performance of illegal abortions at the hospital, which Homer is morally opposed to. The novel highlights the importance of personal convictions and purpose and weighs the two sides of the abortion debate.

* {{Squick}}: The sad, horrifically described, and (as the author's notes reveal) ''medically accurate'' death of [[spoiler: Mrs Eames]] (she drinks oil of tansy as an abortificant, and the resulting scurvy turns her internal organs to jelly), along with the several likewise accurate descriptions of 19th abortion practices *shutter*
