What should have been a heartwarming local birth announcement was, in Miss Mumpy's opinion, corrupted into sensationalist journalism for the global press vultures.
This associated press article reports of the successful birth of baby Timothy the first child of Roy and Eloysa Vasquez. A beautiful moment for the family, right? Then why did they have to add such sentences as this: "Her tiny, distorted body left little room for a fetus to grow and Vasquez suffered two miscarriages before doctors at Stanford University's Lucile Packard Children's Hospital delivered her son, Timothy, by Cesarean section on Jan. 24." Her tiny, distorted body! Oh, that will do wonders for spreading awareness and acceptance!
And what about the family? Why be reminded of two miscarriages at a time when they have brought a beautiful baby boy into the world? I am not one for being overly PC (obviously) but I really do draw the line here.
Shame on you associated press.
