"Are you my mother?"-Dr Seuss

The things we do for science…. If the world is overpopulated and people are not adopting enough kids, why not have men reproducing? Going against the grains I would say. This baby may be born purely for science? Or maybe they are born because someone is happy. There once was a time where it was unheard of for a single mother to have a child. Is it okay for someone to have a baby and not have the “family” unit? My mom was a single mother, raised four kids on her own without any help and without the supposed “family-unit” or father figure. Happens all the time, mothers and fathers raising children on their own, but I have never seen a person who wants a broken family… Most people start out in a relationship, not just having a baby for science. When we learned about the pregnant man during our reproductive technologies discussion I was a bit shocked that someone would want to bring a baby into the world for the purpose of science. In Dr. Seuss’ “Horton Hears a Who,” the character, Horton says, “a person’s a person no matter how small.” Many people against abortion use this to say why it is wrong to simply kill fetuses; is it wrong to create them using science as well?
If we are talking Dr Seuss, won’t this baby think “Are You My Mother?” Is this too far, playing god?
