The NY Times Says Intensive Parenting Is Best, But…

“Parents Are Highly Involved in their Adult Children’s Lives and Fine With It,” declared the front page of The New York Times.

The court repeatedly used the expression “extrauterine children” to describe frozen embryos. Frozen embryos are currently regarded as property in most jurisdiction. If they are “extrauterine children”, Alabama’s IVF industry may be forced to make radical changes in its practices.
