What about left-handed children from multiple births?

Look mom, I found a new instrument!

No mention of heterogeneous treatment effects, which would aid in the interpretation of the differences between the probit and IV estimates.

I am also not convinced that handedness is exogenous. My parents always claimed that I was leaning towards being left-handed but that they constrained me to be right-handed. My mother was left-handed and didn't care for the minor hassles it entailed. According to footnote 4 I suffered from "cultural censorship of left-handedness".
