Wonder-working science transforms an infertile woman into a marvel of fecundity. For reasons of her own, by accident or design, she ignores medical advice and becomes pregnant. not with one, but with eight embryos.

She cannot possibly deliver any of her embryos alive. So her doctors tell her. For any of them to survive, six will have to be aborted.
