"Reborn" babies

Have any of you heard of this disturbing new trend?

"One woman in the BBC documentary [My Fake Baby], married and in her 40s, said she wanted a real baby, but was too busy to commit to caring for a real one. A reborn doll satisfies her maternal instincts, she said, without all the carrying on and mess."

How long do you think it will take before we hear stories about these "babies" being baptized?

In PD James' The Children of Men, women dress up kittens and dolls as babies and push them in prams, have them christened, etc. Stranger than fiction indeed.

It's as disturbing (and rooted in the same anti-incarnationalism) as this.
