Unfortunately, I missed the panel and from the other blogs it was pretty awesome. I was surprised to find that the panelists thought Austin was less accepting of the homosexual community since Austin is very diverse. I was also surprised that there were was so much reproductive technology now. I only knew about artificial insemination and in vitro. What I found most interesting about lecture on Thursday was the discussion about elective abortion and miscarriages. I asked the question about still birth and I was shocked to hear that despite the baby dying, a woman still had to go through the motions of carrying it until delivery. I find that extremely depressing and psychologically damaging.
