Baby series

July is "Purposeful Parenting Month." I've never had the pleasure of parenting.

Getting married and having kids is a naturally obvious path that I never chose to follow; it's virtually programmed into us from birth. Medical advances during my lifetime (birth control pills, fertility drugs, embryonic cell research) are posing huge ethical questions, while overpopulation is rarely discussed. I'm not sure I have any answers, even for myself.

Are we headed for a genetics-based society as in the movie, Gattica?
