Hear Owen coo!

My grandson Owen was interviewed a few weeks ago for NPR's All Things Considered, and last night they aired the segment. Owen's mom and dad were interviewed also :-)

You can read about it, see a picture of Owen and his mom, my daughter Reetie, and hear Owen cooing in the background if you listen to the segment.

Gattaca, anyone?

Chuck Colson has an article about how British researchers are suggesting we eliminate autism by aborting those with a genetic disposition to it in the womb.

Among the nifty little factoids you will find in Colson's article: there's apparently a name now for women who resist the pressure to abort fetuses pre-diagnosed in utero with Down's syndrome, autism etc. They are called "genetic outlaws".

Whoo-ie, baby, ride'em cowboy! Mama, don't let your girls grow up to be genetic outlaws...
