Dem Leser soll dieses Wissen zur persönlichen Meinungsbildung weitergegeben werden, werden doch Bereiche wie Schwangerschaft, Kinderwunsch und Behinderung angesprochen, die in unserer sich mehr und mehr individualisierenden Gesellschaft kaum noch Interesse finden.
In Deutschland sind Männer und Frauen rar geworden, die einen Kinderwunsch äußern und ihn verwirklichen; die wenigsten von ihnen wären dann auch noch bereit ein behindertes style groß zu ziehen. Trotzdem gibt es diese Menschen, und so sollen auch die Gedanken der Mutter eines behinderten Kindes mit in diese Hausarbeit einfließen.
Vielleicht gewinnt der/die eine oder andere LeserIn eine neue Sichtweise auf die PND, mit der - wenn auch ungewollt - nichts anderes als der Gedanke der Eugenik, der Rassenhygiene, auf eine diskretere Weise weitergesponnen wird.
