  7. "Baby Joseph," Infant From Canada Has Died
    At some point, "care" becomes "torture". . This was pretty selfish on the part of the parents to prolong this. And I'm coming from personal experience of having to make a similar decision for my own...

  11. Any 22 weekers out there?

  15. 70 year old mom
    How unethical. The Dr. who agreed to do this should have his/her license suspended. This is in the same league as Nadia Suleman's fertility Dr. who continued to impregnate her. . I grew up with...

  16. Thoughts on improving caring
    How to basically teach caring? Yikes. This seems pretty innate to me - either you've got it, or you don't. But to teach this? It reminds me of that movie Harrison Ford was in a number of years...
