Grandchildren at all Costs
Sometimes I worry that eventually I will run out of things to write about in this blog. It has to happen someday, right? I mean how many issues and topics about pronatalism and childfreedom are there to write about? Eventually the well has to run dry.
But, just when I have this thought, another story always presents itself. And here is the next one: a woman, whose 21 year old son died in an assault, petitions the court to harvest his sperm so she can have grandchildren.
While I sympathize with this woman for losing her son (who she obviously loved very much), I have to say that this is about the most selfish and unethical thing I have ever heard. When I saw this on the Today Show this morning, I was actually rendered speechless, so what does that tell you?
