LA clinic could already allow parents to choose if they wanted a boy or a girl, but now parents can also choose the eye color, hair color, hair type, and complexion of babies! This makes me very uncomfortable…certain lines are now being crossed and some clinics seem to have no problems with that as long as parents pay them their $18k:

It is amazing to me that a judge in West Virginia received $3 million from this coal company and then the judge declined to remove himself from a case regarding that company!
