Doctor Treating Pregnant Women with Drug to Prevent Lesbianism

Dan Savage has the jarring details:

New "Pediatric endocrinologist Maria New—of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Florida International University—isn't just trying to prevent lesbianism by treating pregnant women with an experimental hormone. She's also trying to prevent the births of girls who display an 'abnormal' disinterest in babies, playing with girls' toys, becoming mothers, and whose 'career preferences' are deemed too 'masculine.' … So no more Elena Kagans, no more Donna Shalalas, no more Constance McMillens, no more Martina Navratilovas—because all women everywhere need to grow up to suck dick, crank out babies, and stick to women's work. And the existence of adult women who are clearly not interested in 'becoming someone's wife' and 'making babies' constitutes a medical emergency that requires immediate intervention."
