    babies seem to be a boutique item.  Something they do for the attention.  There are a helluva lot of good reasons to have babies.  Publicity shouldn't be one of them.

      Literally, I saw yuppie couples go all-out to conceive, only to park their child in the garage like a fancy car. Talk about treating your child like a "lifestyle accessory."

      Children know when they aren't wanted, is the thing. You can send them to fancy schools and all the rest, but you can't get that basic truth of their existence past them. If they're from poor backgrounds, they grow up to be gang-bangers. Wealthy, unloved kids grow up to damage society in more far-reaching ways.
