← Should Depressed People Avoid Having Children?

Tell that to the people having 16 kids, first off.

Of course her fear is irrational and if she understood a little more about heredity she would have a more optimistic outlook. Then again, it's probably her depression that doesn't allow her to see it in that way. I have to think it's a problem with information, rather than nature.

Maybe she could have an optimistic outlook if she felt she was breeding with someone who was dominantly optimistic?

She should think it over a bit more. I'm sure it's a stretchy bit in her routine that she is forced to defend.
