Saving Baby S

In the High Court in Dublin today an important judgement with regards to the practice of surrogacy in Ireland was made.  You can get the details here.   Surrogacy is a problem, and it creates more problems than it solves, like all alternative means of procreation. When you start to mess with nature, life gets very complicated.
And here's another complicated story for you: a surrogate mother told to abort a baby because the genetic parents did not want a handicapped child,even offering her $10,000 to do so.  This is where we are now.  Note what must be the most grotesque phrase in the article: the surrogate mother describes the reactions she got when she refused to kill the baby:
"I can't tell you how many people told me that I was bad, that I was wrong, that I should go have an abortion, that I would be damned to hell." 
"Damned to hell" for refusing to kill a child?  This is where our wonderful permissive society has led us.  Marantha!

UPDATE:  Matthew Archbald over at CMR has a post on this in which he gives a sample of the comments left on Ms Kelley's blog - pro-choicers who are upset (to put it mildly) at her decision not to abort.  As he correctly points out - they are not pro-choice, they are pro-abortion.
