Inspiration for 'My Sister's Keeper' Speaks Out

die of FA too. That's the reality."

Dr. Schoolcraft, an internationally recognized expert in reproductive medicine whose Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine (CCRM) was able to allow the Nash's embryos to live longer outside the womb so they were more likely to survive, agrees with the Nashes that the book and movie have spurred an important discussion of the bioethics around PGD.

"These issues are ethically challenging," Dr. Schoolcraft acknowledges. "I think it is wrong, however, to slap the label of designer baby on these kids and dismiss this work as the province of couples who want to create babies to glorify their egos. The Nash's situation, and many that have come since Adam was born eight years ago, show that this science can save lives and lead to loving families."

Lisa Nash commented, "Today when I hear the designer baby label, I laugh. Adam was designed to save his sister's life, but that's where it ended. Professional sports teams will have to look elsewhere. He's our special boy, but he's just a kid."

Lisa is emphatic about the parameters the couple set when working with Dr. Schoolcraft. "We decided Adam's cord blood would be used to attempt to save Molly's life, but that would be it. He would not be used for his blood, marrow or organs after he was born."

Today all the Nash children are thriving. Adam's cord blood succeeded in curing Molly's leukemia. While she still lives with health issues like diabetes, and understands the potential for many types of cancers, Molly is in most ways a typical 14-year-old who loves text messaging her friends and performing in the theater. "Molly lets me do the worrying. She knows what happened with her was a miracle, but she's now focused on being a teenager," her mom said.
