    It's really a frightening thought taken to the extreme....

    My medical records state that I have "cervical incompetence" - basically a cervix that can painlessly dilate during the second trimester causing premature birth before viability.  If Bush and his ilk have their way would I be considered guilty of manslaughter/murder if I chose not to get a cervical stitch to keep the cervix shut or if I chose not to adhere to the activity restrictions my ob/gyn recommends?

    Are we going to prosecute couples who have in vitro fertilization for destroying extra embryos?  For a real laugh check out "embryo adoption" -- the farcical idea that the discarded embryos from IVF should be given to other IVF couples.  The problem?  Other IVF couples want the "best of the best" - IVF success rates are dependent on the quality of the embryos, and embryos that have been frozen for a while degrade...
