The Fertility Question: Enough About My Sex Life, Already, Nancy Rabinowitz, Brain, Child
Television writer and producer Nancy Rabinowitz writes this amusing personal narrative in which she pontificates about being pregnant with twins and other people's reactions to her. With all the recent media coverage on fertility drugs, she is constantly defending her pregnancy. She laments one woman she met in a restaurant who exclaimed to Rabinowitz, ''I'm a twin! ...But that was nearly forty years ago when twins were natural.' (As opposed to my demon spawn, [she wonders.])' Mainly Rabinowitz writes--in her essay in Brain, Child, a magazine for thinking mothers--she doesn't like people prying into her personal life. And, 'The bottom line is, however they got there, these are our babies-not an excuse for some stranger to pry into the most intimate details of our private life.'
