Share Article

Author J. Stewart Willis pens scientific mystery that raises ethical questions.

Ambition is a great motivator for success but when left unchecked, determination can lead down a dangerous path. Without a conscious public, or regulation from proper authorities, who will stop those in power from manipulating their capabilities for personal and political gain? Author J. Stewart Willis explores this topic in, “Gestation Seven: One Was Black and One Was White.”

“Gestation Seven” chronicles a young reporter’s investigation into a crime involving the devious work of government scientists. Mary Murphy has stumbled upon the mistake of rogue scientists who are attempting to reduce the gestation period of the human race from nine to seven months. Their errors ended in the death of two babies.

Murphy, along with a local congressman, launch an investigation into the culprits of these reckless experiments and the government agencies that failed to provide oversight. As details of the research is revealed, Murphy is confronted with the question of finding out who will benefit from this failed and flawed experiment.

“Gestation Seven provides a captivating and interesting story that centers around this controversial topic,” Willis said. “Genetic research can be a polarizing dangerous science. Mix that with ambition and naivety on the part of the public, and you have a recipe for conflict and strife.”
