Playboy Mansion more like a squalid prison
Meet the Twiblings - eggs implanted into two different rented wombs are twins. Read this line and tell me your heart doesn't break:
The eggs were fertilized with Michael’s sperm and metamorphosed into embryos; the morning after Valentine’s Day, they were transferred to Melissa and Fie, and by spring, in each of their bellies, a heart was beating. We were careful to refer to the fetuses as the “drafts” rather than our chosen names to remind ourselves that they were notes toward the children we wanted, but if they died, they were just beginnings like all the embryos had been, and we would start again.The Unborn Paradox

Seven weeks in, an ultrasound revealed the Burlington, Ont., resident was carrying twins. “It came as a complete shock,” said the mother, who asked not to be named. “We’re both career people. If we were going to have three children two years apart, someone else was going to be raising our kids. ... All of a sudden our lives as we know them and as we like to lead them, are not going to happen.”
She soon discovered another option: Doctors could “reduce” the pregnancy from twins to a singleton through a little-known procedure that eliminates selected fetuses — and has become increasingly common in the past two decades amid a boom in the number of multiple pregnancies....
The Burlington woman, however, says she has no regrets, and believes the option should be openly available to all parents expecting twins.God, my Heavenly Father, I am sick. I am sick with the way people you created have perverted what you gave us. I am sorry that we people don't think your ways are good enough. Please change our minds and our hearts to truly see children for what they are: gifts from you. Amen.
