"Parenthood," an ingratiating comedy from director Ron Howard, is the latest in what promises to be a long line of child-rearing movies. There's no avoiding it: baby boomers want toddler flicks, and they always get what they want. The baby boom generation is like a big ship that goes where it wants, when it wants, and the rest of us have to be content to bob in its giant wake. We watched as they went to college and discovered rebellion, took jobs and wrestled with materialism, and now we must watch them raise their kids.

Two 2-year-old boys pulled at the same toy, each screaming at the top of his lungs. Each mother, looking slightly embarrassed, tried to reason with her son in a quiet, but firm, voice. A few of the other mothers sitting in the circle on child-size wooden chairs looked on sympathetically, while the woman speaking when the dispute began simply spoke loudly to be heard above the din. The scene was a recent "Play 'n Share" session of the Parents' Network that took place in the education building of the Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, in Ambler.

In a fascinating New Jersey court case, the rapidly expanding boundaries of reproductive technology clashed with old-time notions about parenthood and parental rights. Wisely, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that even in this brave new world of embryonic science, parenthood still counts. The case involved 11 embryos - products of an in-vitro fertilization procedure undergone by an unidentified Camden County couple. Let's call them John and Mary Doe. Four of the embryos were implanted in Mrs. Doe and a daughter was born.

Ron Howard remembers the precise moment when the idea for his new movie, "Parenthood," occurred to him. It happened right after "the plane ride from hell. " "I had this really long plane flight where I was surrounded by my kids. One of them threw up on me in the first 45 minutes of the flight, and I didn't have another shirt," recalls the father of four. Howard is laughing. It seems much funnier now, two years later, in the comfort of his suite at the Regency Hotel. "My twin daughters were just not even 2 yet - a terrible time to be flying with kids.

Lauren Graham is a little surprised to find herself in Philadelphia as part of a quick East Coast publicity swing. After all, her NBC show, Parenthood , is still shooting in Los Angeles. But when your boss, a big Hollywood mogul with roots in TV, tells you to jump on a plane, you say, "Window or aisle?" "It was explained to me that Ron Howard, when he was doing Happy Days , had success in traveling the country and talking about the show. So this was like Ron Howard wanted me to come here," Graham says, laughing.

You may have heard about a new study that says people who have children are more depressed than people who don't. Speaking on behalf of parents everywhere, I would just like to say: I wish. The idea of settling into a three- or six-month funk sounds positively restful. But I really don't have the time. For example, on New Year's Eve, as my wife and I frantically swept and cleaned in preparation for a houseful of guests, my 2-year-old decided to strip off her diaper and parade through the upstairs.

Jesse Green's story is so simple as to be quaint: He falls in love with a single person who has just adopted a child. Except that Green is gay, as is Andy, and together they adopt another child and begin a family. His meditations on the contented single gay man thrust into the disarming and disorienting world of parenthood are found in The Velveteen Father: An Unexpected Journey to Parenthood (Villard, $23.95). It was named one of the best nonfiction books of 1999 by the Los Angeles Times and one of the best memoirs by Amazon.

"REPELLENT" is a fairly strong word that, if used too often, loses its power. It has such potency that I reserve it just for things that make my stomach turn and my head spin, things that make me question humanity, things that have a rancid smell and an ugly outer shell. Emily Letts is one of those rare creatures who fits my idea of "repellent. " In fact, Emily and the whole Planned Parenthood crew that support her are prima facie evidence that the world is filled with what Hannah Arendt famously referred to as the "banality of evil.

While working in human resources at Marshall Field & Co., I befriended an 80-year-old children's department employee named Annie Carr.

WASHINGTON - President Obama vowed Friday to join Planned Parenthood in fighting against what he said are efforts by states to turn women's health back to the 1950s, before the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide, and singled out the GOP-governed states of North Dakota and Mississippi for criticism. "When politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they're not just talking about you," Obama said, becoming the first sitting president to address the abortion-rights group in person.

NOTED FEMINIST Gloria Steinem took the podium at the National Constitution Center on Tuesday night, addressing a crowd of 500 spanning four generations at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania's annual Spring Gathering. Steinem's talk came at a time when illegal-abortion doc Kermit Gosnell's trial is highlighting the uglier side of the abortion issue in Philadelphia, and as state legislators are considering measures to limit abortion access under future government-funded health-insurance plans.

Last year, U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., was caught in a bald-faced lie: "Abortions are 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does," he claimed — when abortion services actually comprise 3 percent of what Planned Parenthood does. A spokesman later explained that what Kyl said in public was "not meant to be a factual statement. " In that tradition comes State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler — again — with another foray into conservative fringe politics that's geared toward reducing even further the services to low-income women in Pennsylvania (and negatively affecting the rest of us)

HARRISBURG — Even as some Republicans try to steer policy initiatives toward bread-and-butter economic issues in advance of the November elections, a small band of GOP lawmakers in Harrisburg tacked rightward Wednesday, introducing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania. The legislation, similar to antiabortion bills crafted in other states, would bar all federal and state funding to the nonprofit, which provides abortions along with an array of other women's health services.

AUSTIN, Texas - A federal judge on Monday stopped Texas from preventing Planned Parenthood from getting funds through the state's Women's Health Program - a decision the state immediately appealed. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel, sitting in Austin, ruled there is sufficient evidence that a law banning Planned Parenthood from the program is unconstitutional. He imposed an injunction against enforcing it until he could hear full arguments. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott appealed Yeakel's decision to the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, asking that it remove the injunction.

AUSTIN, Texas - A federal appeals judge stepped into the fight over the Texas Women's Health Program on Tuesday, saying he wanted to hear arguments on whether the state should be prevented from enforcing a law that bans Planned Parenthood from participating in the program. Less than 24 hours after a federal judge in Austin ordered Texas not to enforce a rule banning clinics associated with abortion providers from receiving state funds, Fifth Circuit Appeals Judge Jerry Smith granted Texas an emergency stay lifting the Austin court's order.
