Brave New World, Indeed

When a lab mix up causes one woman to lose her child to abortion in another woman's womb, it's time to stop. It's time ask ourselves just what led us to the point where we allow doctors and lab technicians such an intimate role in the conception of our children.

"Keep your rosaries out of our ovaries," used to be a popular pro choice mantra.

We don't want God in our intimate lives, but Joe lab assistant is welcomed on in so long as he's serving our desires. I should hope it would give pause when he accidentally mislabels a frozen child leading a doctor to implant him/her in the wrong woman who has no qualms about discarding the baby's life as it doesn't serve the particular desires that she's paying to have fulfilled. I should hope it would give us pause.

This story makes me heartsick, for so many reasons.
