Re: Un-Bee
Nick - I, too, was repulsed by the NYT article you noted. "Me, me, me, it's all about me!" To the doctor she says, 
''Is it possible to get rid of one of them? Or two of them?''
And to her boyfriend (who at least suggests keeping them all, but long ago had turned in his spine for a girlie man transfusion, so he just went to the corner and began sucking his thumb - (I wonder how she got pregnant?)) she says,
"This is why they say it's the woman's choice, because you think I could just carry triplets. That's easy for you to say, but I'd have to give up my life." ... [If I keep them] I'm going to have to move to Staten Island. I'll never leave my house because I'll have to care for these children. I'll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise. Even in my moments of thinking about having three, I don't think that deep down I was ever considering it.
Two days after the "procedure" life is good again (- for her; for two babies, life was an option never offered) :
smells no longer set me off and I no longer wanted to eat nothing but sour-apple gum. I went on to have a pretty seamless pregnancy. But I had a recurring feeling that this was going to come back and haunt me. Was I going to have a stillbirth or miscarry late in my pregnancy?

I had a boy, and everything is fine. But thinking about becoming pregnant again is terrifying. Am I going to have quintuplets? I would do the same thing if I had triplets again, but if I had twins, I would probably have twins. Then again, I don't know.
God help us. Lady, do us all a favor and use some contraception.
