From David Klinghoffer at ENV:
Our friends at The Stream were kind enough to adapt some of what I’ve written here on Bill Nye, Oskar Schindler, and the notion of “extra people.” On the heels of this, Wesley Smith points out how “extra people,” literally — to be precise, extra embryos — are being turned into jewelry:
Illustrating the crassness of our age, a jewelry company implants leftover destroyed embryos into their products.
I thought this must surely be a joke. Not so. Wesley quotes an Australian parenting website, Kidspot:
After a six-year IVF journey to receive miracles Lachlan, 4, and 21-month-old twins Charlotte and William, Belinda and Shaun Stafford didn’t know what to do with their remaining embryos. Their babies.
Extra embryos. Extra babies. They go on:
Donation wasn’t an option, the annual storage fee was an added financial strain, and disposing of them unimaginable.
So when the NSW couple heard about Baby Bee Hummingbirds, an Australian company turning embryos into keepsake jewelry, they jumped at the chance.
Now Ms Stafford has all of her babies with her every day — including seven embryos in her heart-shaped pendant worn close to her heart, always. More.
Cannibalism is becoming a Thing too, by the way.
Reality check: The main thing to see here is that in the age of euthanasia, we are all “the fetus” now. Keep voting with and for the Cool, and the Cool will end up wearing or eating you. With pride. And some justification.
