I’m speechless. A “reduction”?

My wife and I were young, but we had issues getting pregnant.

We had 1 child (after 2 years of trying) and were having trouble getting pregnant again using our original fertility doctor. He wanted to do things I wanted to avoid.

The day after the 2006 midterm elections we had our first date with the new doctor.

I will never forget this.

We had never met him before. CNN was on in the waiting room gloating about Donald Rumsfeld resigning. I was annoyed.

Then, we go in his office and he is acting like a little girl in “The Sound of Music”. “Isn’t this a great day for America? That terrorist isn’t in our government anymore.”

I muddle through the conversation trying not to react. I don’t want to “ruin our chances to get pregnant” or anything.

So they guy is Mr. Cocky Wannabe. He says “I know your issues. Here is my plan. We’ll give you enough drugs to produce 10 eggs per cycle and see what happens naturally. If nothing happens there, we’ll harvest them, fertilize them, and implant them.”

I’m not a typical pro-life profile. I’m not religious. I just think killing for convenience is wrong. The idea of creating life just to kill it really pisses me off.

I ask this doctor, “what happens if we have 5 embryos?” He says “we’ll deal with them.”

WE? Does that mean he’ll help change diapers, feed them, raise them, and pay for college?

I ask a little more diplomatically for the wife’s sake.

“We will reduce the pregnancy.”

WE? Reduce? Really?

I asked, “you mean you’ll abort the embryos?”

Wife is looking at me in a “don’t do this” way. The “Sound of Music” in the doctor’s head stops. He looks at me.

“If you won’t abort embryos you are at the wrong fertility clinic.”

Yes. I was.

And I have my second child, thank you Dr. Murder. I have to wonder how many embryos Dr. Murder killed compared to the number of people killed by our armed forces during Rumsfeld’s watch. I bet they aren’t that far off.

If three children were too many, how did they decide to have a second pregnancy when they already had a toddler at home? By their logic, can someone dispose of a colicky baby because its even less sleep than they expected?

Cold-blooded, premeditated murder of the most innocent.

"Murder most foul, as in the best it is;
But this most foul, strange and unnatural."

Reduction abortions are the consequence of a society that approves of “fertility doctors”. The procedures used commonly produce multiple embryos. Most people in our society don’t believe embryos are people therefore some will be killed.
