I am just gonna say it. Fucking with Mother Nature too much is wrong.

You could argue that antibiotics and other meds alter the natural course of things. You can ask why shouldn’t we do it because we have the technology? But allowing an infertile couple to give birth to not just one but 3 babies doesn’t seem right. If your body doesn’t do it on its own – maybe you should adopt?

When I see the plethora of un-natural sets of twins/triplets/septuplets in this world I feel sad. Sad for the premature 2 lb babies who spend months in a hospital with tubes running in and out of them experiencing all kinds of unnamed pain for the sake of someone’s american dream. Sad for those same kids whose parents will die before they graduate grad-school because mommy waited too long to start a family. Sad for the parents who will be too tired to enjoy their children because they are the age grandparents usually are. And mostly I feel sad for all the kids who will never be adopted because we are producing children from solutions and tubes. Brangelina you are the exception.

I mean, how is making babies in petrie dishes any different from cloning? We can create something un-natural but not copy something? I am pretty sure Charles Darwin rolls over in his grave every time a 46 year old gives birth. What I find truly sick is how many millions of dollars have been made by infertility doctors and genetic scientists.

There is a fine balance in Nature and as a global community we have thrown it WAY off balance. Messing around with where babies comes from seems like the ultimate fuck you to mother nature. We should go back to taking care of unwanted children who didn’t ask to be born and stop creating kids who wouldn’t have gotten here on their own.
