Totally out of line for a mainstream newspaper. To become just a tease rag. Put then the NY Times is just a rag anyway and has been for a long time.
With reporting like this, it is not a "tease".Jews of Ashkenazi, or central and eastern European, backgrounds, who make up about half the Jews in Israel and the vast majority of those in the United States, are much more likely to carry mutations that increase the risks for both breast and ovarian cancers, according to the National Cancer Institute.
A number of influential geneticists and cancer doctors from various medical centers here say that the Israeli Health Ministry should pay for free voluntary genetic testing of all Ashkenazi women over the age of 25. About a million women would be covered, at a cost of less than $100 per test. Jews of Iraqi descent, whose families also often carry a harmful mutation, might also be screened.
Right there, some of her decisions in getting pregnant should have been reviewed, given her heritage.If I had known of my risk, I would have at least been able to be informed. My twins are the result of in vitro fertilization. My second pregnancy was natural. I blasted my body with a whole lot of hormones, and if I knew I was BRCA-positive or at risk, I could have asked my doctors if giving myself all these hormones was going to affect my risk of breast cancer down the road. But now it's always in the back of my mind. I wonder if I made it more likely that I would get breast cancer eventually by going through IVF.
Being prudish when women's lives are at stake, is ridiculous.
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!! This is a clear sign that Barack HUSSEIN Obama is degrading our moral standards in this great country of ours! Its another sign of moral degradation happening under this regime!!

I don't find it offensive, not the body part. I find it unnecessary, and I find the newspapers appeal to people's prurient interest, probably in their commercial interest, to be offensive. If you're Hustler, we know who you are. NYT, you're not supposed to be Hustler. It's commercialism, they want to catch people's eye and pull it to the paper to get them to read further, hook them and get them to buy a copy. I bet it worked and the issue sold better than normal.
