New Brave New World...

The CBC has seen fit to share the information that the crack team here at the 'Kog have known about for about a month: people are travelling to the USA to choose the sex of their unborn children. I won't start ranting again about the materialistic, narcissistic morons who would choose to undertake such a choice, nor will I describe the obvious moral bankruptcy of the doctor involved. I've done it before, and regular readers will already be familiar with my position.
I do have a few questions, though, the first one being: Why bring this up now? Can there be that little happening in Saskatchewan that they need to bring back 'greatest hits' news to fill space? If so, I look forward to the election of Tommy Douglas in the near future.

I've gone and mentioned 'CBC' and 'Tommy Douglas' in the same piece - some producer is sensing a great disturbance in the Force...

My other question is in regard to this:
Steinberg said he is aware that his work is controversial. "I've been doing in vitro fertilization from the beginning, and I remember walking out of my office 30 years ago and seeing a note on my windshield that said: 'Test tube babies have no soul.'"

So, not only are the parents choosing the sex of the baby, they are assuring the kids' future in politics? That's child abuse, as far as I'm concerned.
