TV Show Covers Contriversial Topic

Last night I was watching Law & Order: SVU. I believe it was from this season as I was watching it on NBC, not USA, but I hadn't seen it. The show centered around a sperm bank that had a case of embryos stolen. In that case were 2 very contriversal sets of embryos. The first was from a couple who both have acondroplasia (sp?) and were screening out babies with double acon, but whose dr. then refused to implant because the parents wanted only acon babies implanted. They did not want an average height child. The second was an Ashley X case. 2 parents had decided to have their 8 y.o. daughter undergo hormone treatments to stunt her growth, and while they were at it, decided to harvest her eggs. Why? The mother wanted another child but was infertile, so she was going to implant her daughter's eggs with donor sperm and then carry the baby as a surregette. I thought this show could start up some discussion here on disaboom, but was uncertain of where to post this on the forums, so I decided to post it here.
