"Weasel Words"


Great article on Zenit regarding "surrogate parenthood".  I especially appreciated this quote:  Miranda Devine, writing in the Sydney-based Daily Telegraph newspaper on Jan. 19, was also highly critical of the term used: "Even if she was paid, as most U.S. surrogates are, what she did was an act of enormous personal generosity, and ought not be diminished by weasel words that seek to dehumanize the most intimate human relationship." - on the term "gestational carrier".

Are we really at the point where we've "de-humanized" the creation of new human life?  Why, yes, we have.   You, my dear, are no longer a mother:  you are a gestational carrier.  Hello, Sad New World.
