One baby with extra pickles and a side of fries, please.

A made-to-order baby? It scares me that reproductive technology (it also bothers me that we associate these two words) has gotten to the point where parents can special order a baby with the "perfect" eye and/or hair color. Why can't couples just wait for the surprise and rejoice with what they are given? This quote from the article bothers me: "Reproductive technology is a blessing for families who need it to give them what nature could not — healthy children." Why are unhealthy children automatically keyed off as not being a blessing? Arg. Our country, well, much of our world, really irritates me sometimes.

Any thoughts?
