    should not be at issue, but what's interesting, to me, is that this particular scenario which is designed to make PP look bad actually sets up the potential Mother up to look bad, imo.

    Meaning that a person who is not capable of coping with having a child of one gender or another does not appear to be capable of coping with the realities being a parent of either child - regardless of its gender.  The scenario supports the case for abortion.  It is not for anyone to tell the woman she must have an abortion, but pointing her towards counselors who would discuss the pros and cons of parenthood with a person like that in an effort to help her figure out if she (or she and her partner) are really ready to take on the responsibility of parenthood would likely seem reasonable to the large majority of the population.

      is all about ginning up outrage against certain immigrant communities, IMHO, as well as Planned Parenthood.

      It's a twofer.

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
