"Patti Davis says Reagan wouldn't have opposed gay marriage; not so fast. Reagan was silent on same-sex marriage, as was everyone of his generation. He, like all liberals of his time, could not have conceived of same-sex marriage, and he, like the entirety of the Democratic Party just a decade or two ago, unwaveringly supported traditional marriage. Patti Davis, Ronald Reagan’s daughter, recently speculated on where her father might stand on same-sex marriage. Politico published her thoughts under the headline, “Patti Davis says Reagan wouldn’t have opposed gay marriage.”. Indeed, Reagan was tolerant — on religion, on race, on ethnic differences, on differences of opinion on many things, and also toward gays. She states of her father and same-sex marriage: “I don’t think he would stand in the way of it, at all. Davis then uses an argument that is libertarian which Reagan was not, and which fails to understand the essence of conservatives’ objection to same-sex marriage: “I also think because he wanted governm...

Policy Politics Child Marriage Puts Girls Worldwide at Risk of HIV/AIDS, Early Pregnancy; Ill. Durbin Drafts Legislation December 9, 2004 Child marriage -- which affects about 51 million girls in developing countries worldwide -- puts women at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS or developing health complications from becoming pregnant at an early age, the Chicago Tribune reports. Girls who are married at a young age and become pregnant before their bodies are prepared to endure pregnancy and delivery may experience obstetric fistula. About 100,000 new cases of obstetric fistula occur annually among girls, and about two million women worldwide are affected, according to the Tribune. Child marriage also can put young women at risk of contracting HIV.

America's Catholic leaders have made it clear that they will defy the federal government on its contraception mandate and the legalization of same-sex marriage. Following the election, Catholic bishops around the nation made it clear that on at least two fronts they will stand firm against the government: the Department of Health and Human Services' HHS contraception mandate, which requires employers — including Christian businesses and organizations — to provide health insurance that includes free sterilization and abortion-causing birth control pills; and the legalization of same-sex marriage. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said that while Catholic leaders are willing to work toward a resolution of the the Church's conflict with the federal government over the mandate, they would in no way compromise on...

News Centre  reports. “Of these 140 million girls, 50 million will be under the age of 15, according to the U.N. Population Fund UNFPA, which added that young girls who marry before the age of 18 have a greater risk of becoming victims of intimate partner violence than those who marry later,” the news service writes, noting, “Child marriage is increasingly recognized as a violation of the rights of girls as it interferes with their education, blocks their opportunity to gain vocational and life skills, and increases their risk...

*  Report: Schwarzenegger Signs 'Harvey Milk Day', Marriage Bills - Towleroad
Schwarzenegger also reportedly signed Senate Bill 54, which requires that California recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. Said Schwarzenegger of the marriage bill:. Following the passage of Proposition 8, there has been some uncertainty as to how California should treat same-sex couples that married out-of-state while same-sex marriage was legal in California. Consistent with the California Supreme Court’s decision that upheld the validity of those in-state marriages entered into prior to the passage of Proposition 8, Senate Bill 54 clarifies that California must also recognize as married couples that legally married in another state during the same period of time in which same-sex marriage was legal in California. In addition, Senate Bill 54 also requires that California recognize the union of couples that marry in states where same-sex marriage is legal. As required by Proposition 8, California will not recognize such couples as “married.” However, Senate Bill 54 will provide the same legal pro...

Justice Watch. An Alliance for Justice blog tracking the latest developments in the fight for a fair America. Gay Marriage Foes Attempt Desperate and Bigoted Recusal Motion. April 26, 2011. Twitter. Facebook. Goggle Last August, California District Court Judge Vaughn Walker struck down Proposition 8, California’s 2008 referendum banning same-sex marriage, as unconstitutional. While the case is on appeal, Prop 8 supporters have filed a motion arguing that Judge Walker’s ruling should be vacated because his long-term, same-sex relationship created a conflict of interest requiring recusal from the case. Today on the Washington Post’s website, Adam Serwer dismantles these arguments. Serwer writes that Prop 8 supporters “are reduced to arguing, essentially, that Walker’s ruling should be vacated because he is gay.” He adds that this “faulty legal reasoning” does nothing to convince anyone that the pro-Prop 8 crowd’s marriage stance “amounts to anything other than prejudice.”. The problem is that ...

Altering the course of U.S social policy, Maine and Maryland became the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote, while Washington state and Colorado set up a showdown with federal authorities by legalizing recreational use of marijuana. The results in Maine and Maryland broke a 32-state streak, dating to 1998, in which gay marriage had been rebuffed by every state that voted on it. They will become the seventh and eighth states to allow same-sex couples to marry. In another gay-rights victory, Minnesota voters defeated a proposed constitutional amendment that would banned same-sex marriage in the state. Similar measures were approved in 30 other states, most recently in North Carolina in May.

*  .. What Therefore God Has Joined Together: Divorce and the Sacrament of Marriage ..
What Therefore God Has Joined Together: Divorce and the Sacrament of Marriage Sep 22nd, 2011. By Bryan Cross. Category: Featured Articles. There are some ancient Christian doctrines that only the Catholic Church has retained. One such doctrine is her teaching on contraception, which was the unanimous teaching of the Church Fathers, and which all Christians shared for nineteen centuries until the Lambeth Conference of 1930. At that conference the Anglican Church decided to permit the use of contraceptives, and were soon followed by all other Protestant denominations. Another such doctrine is the Catholic Church’s teaching concerning the indissolubility of marriage, and thus the impossibility of remarriage while the spouse lives. 1.

(1/1240) Different factors influencing the expression of Raynaud's phenomenon in men and women.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the risk profile for Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) is different between men and women. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study of 800 women and 725 men participating in the Framingham Offspring Study, the association of age, marital status, smoking, alcohol use, diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia with prevalent RP was examined in men and women separately, after adjusting for relevant confounders. RESULTS: The prevalence of RP was 9.6% (n = 77) in women and 5.8% (n = 42) in men. In women, marital status and alcohol use were each associated with prevalent RP (for marital status adjusted odds ratio [OR] 2.3, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.4-3.9; for alcohol use OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.0-5.2), whereas these factors were not associated with RP in men (marital status OR 1.4, 95% CI 0.6-3.5; alcohol use OR 1.0, 95% CI 0.2-4.4). In men, older age (OR 2.3, 95% CI 1.0-5.2) and smoking (OR 2.6, 95% CI 1.1-6.3) were associated with prevalent RP; these factors were not associated with RP in women (older age OR 0.8, 95% CI 0.4-1.6; smoking OR 0.7, 95% CI 0.4-1.1). Diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia were not associated with RP in either sex. CONCLUSION: The results indicate that risk factors for RP differ between men and women. Age and smoking were associated with RP in men only, while the associations of marital status and alcohol use with RP were observed in women only. These findings suggest that different mechanisms influence the expression of RP in men and women.  (+info)

(2/1240) Condom use and HIV risk behaviors among U.S. adults: data from a national survey.

CONTEXT: How much condom use among U.S. adults varies by type of partner or by risk behavior is unclear. Knowledge of such differentials would aid in evaluating the progress being made toward goals for levels of condom use as part of the Healthy People 2000 initiative. METHODS: Data were analyzed from the 1996 National Household Survey of Drug Abuse, an annual household-based probability sample of the noninstitutionalized population aged 12 and older that measures the use of illicit drugs, alcohol and tobacco. The personal behaviors module included 25 questions covering sexual activity in the past year, frequency of condom use in the past year, circumstances of the last sexual encounter and HIV testing. RESULTS: Sixty-two percent of adults reported using a condom at last intercourse outside of an ongoing relationship, while only 19% reported using condoms when the most recent intercourse occurred within a steady relationship. Within ongoing relationships, condom use was highest among respondents who were younger, black, of lower income and from large metropolitan areas. Forty percent of unmarried adults used a condom at last sex, compared with the health objective of 50% for the year 2000. Forty percent of injecting drug users used condoms at last intercourse, compared with the 60% condom use objective for high-risk individuals. Significantly, persons at increased risk for HIV because of their sexual behavior or drug use were not more likely to use condoms than were persons not at increased risk; only 22% used condoms during last intercourse within an ongoing relationship. CONCLUSIONS: Substantial progress has been made toward national goals for increasing condom use. The rates of condom use by individuals at high risk of HIV need to be increased, however, particularly condom use with a steady partner.  (+info)

(3/1240) Maternal smoking and Down syndrome: the confounding effect of maternal age.

Inconsistent results have been reported from studies evaluating the association of maternal smoking with birth of a Down syndrome child. Control of known risk factors, particularly maternal age, has also varied across studies. By using a population-based case-control design (775 Down syndrome cases and 7,750 normal controls) and Washington State birth record data for 1984-1994, the authors examined this hypothesized association and found a crude odds ratio of 0.80 (95% confidence interval 0.65-0.98). Controlling for broad categories of maternal age (<35 years, > or =35 years), as described in prior studies, resulted in a negative association (odds ratio = 0.87, 95% confidence interval 0.71-1.07). However, controlling for exact year of maternal age in conjunction with race and parity resulted in no association (odds ratio = 1.00, 95% confidence interval 0.82-1.24). In this study, the prevalence of Down syndrome births increased with increasing maternal age, whereas among controls the reported prevalence of smoking during pregnancy decreased with increasing maternal age. There is a substantial potential for residual confounding by maternal age in studies of maternal smoking and Down syndrome. After adequately controlling for maternal age in this study, the authors found no clear relation between maternal smoking and the risk of Down syndrome.  (+info)

(4/1240) Low-weight neonatal survival paradox in the Czech Republic.

Analysis of vital statistics for the Czech Republic between 1986 and 1993, including 3,254 infant deaths from 350,978 first births to married and single women who conceived at ages 18-29 years, revealed a neonatal survival advantage for low-weight infants born to disadvantaged (single, less educated) women, particularly for deaths from congenital anomalies. This advantage largely disappeared after the neonatal period. The same patterns have been observed for low-weight infants born to black women in the United States. Since the Czech Republic had an ethnically homogenous population, virtually universal prenatal care, and uniform institutional conditions for delivery, Czech results must be attributed to social rather than to biologic or medical circumstances. This strengthens the contention that in the United States, the black neonatal survival paradox may be due as much to race-related social stigmatization and consequent disadvantage as to any hypothesized hereditary influences on birth-weight-specific survival.  (+info)

(5/1240) Breast cancer risk in monozygotic and dizygotic female twins: a 20-year population-based cohort study in Finland from 1976 to 1995.

This population-based study investigated the occurrence of breast cancer over a 20-year period in a cohort of monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twins in Finland. Altogether, 13,176 female twins of known zygosity who were living in Finland at the end of 1975 were identified from the Finnish Twin Cohort Study and followed-up for cancer through the Finnish Cancer Registry for the years 1976-1995. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated, based on national cancer incidence rates. The relative risk of breast cancer for MZ twins compared to DZ twins was decreased [SIR(MZ)/SIR(DZ) ratio = 0.78; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.58-1.0]; the decreased risk for MZ twins (SIR = 0.76; 95% CI, 0.58-1.0) accounted for this result, whereas the risk for DZ twins did not differ from the general population risk (SIR = 0.98; 95% CI, 0.84-1.1). There was no risk decrease among MZ twins in other cancers related to reproductive behavior; i.e., number of children and age at first birth seem not to explain the decreased risk of breast cancer. Our results, which are in line with earlier studies on the same topic, suggest that prenatal influences or postnatal behavioral factors may protect MZ female twins from breast cancer.  (+info)

(6/1240) Plasma lycopene concentrations in humans are determined by lycopene intake, plasma cholesterol concentrations and selected demographic factors.

Higher plasma lycopene concentrations have been associated with a reduced risk of several chronic diseases. Determinants of lycopene concentrations in humans have received limited attention. We had blood lycopene concentrations and lycopene consumption data available from 111 participants in a two-center cancer prevention trial involving beta-carotene and examined determinants of plasma lycopene levels cross-sectionally. The median plasma lycopene level was 0.59 micromol/L (range 0.07-1.79). Low plasma concentrations of lycopene were associated with the following variables in univariate analyses: study site (Florida lower than Connecticut, P = 0.001), being nonmarried (P = 0.02), having lower income (P = 0.003), being nonwhite race/ethnicity (P = 0.03), having lower dietary lycopene intake (r = 0.29, P = 0.002), having lower plasma cholesterol (r = 0. 43, P = 0.0001) and triglyceride levels (r = 0.26, P = 0.005), and consuming less vitamin C (r = 0.20, P = 0.03). Women had slightly higher plasma lycopene levels than men (0.65 vs. 0.58 micromol/L; P = 0.31), despite lower dietary intake of lycopene (1,040 vs. 1,320 microg/d; P = 0.50). Plasma lycopene levels did not differ in smokers and nonsmokers. In stepwise regression analyses, the determinants of plasma lycopene were plasma cholesterol, dietary lycopene, and marital status; these three variables explained 26% of the variance in plasma lycopene. Relatively few lifestyle and demographic factors were important determinants of plasma lycopene levels, with plasma cholesterol, marital status, and lycopene intake being of greatest importance.  (+info)

(7/1240) Contraceptive failure rates: new estimates from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth.

CONTEXT: Unintended pregnancy remains a major public health concern in the United States. Information on pregnancy rates among contraceptive users is needed to guide medical professionals' recommendations and individuals' choices of contraceptive methods. METHODS: Data were taken from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) and the 1994-1995 Abortion Patient Survey (APS). Hazards models were used to estimate method-specific contraceptive failure rates during the first six months and during the first year of contraceptive use for all U.S. women. In addition, rates were corrected to take into account the underreporting of induced abortion in the NSFG. Corrected 12-month failure rates were also estimated for subgroups of women by age, union status, poverty level, race or ethnicity, and religion. RESULTS: When contraceptive methods are ranked by effectiveness over the first 12 months of use (corrected for abortion underreporting), the implant and injectables have the lowest failure rates (2-3%), followed by the pill (8%), the diaphragm and the cervical cap (12%), the male condom (14%), periodic abstinence (21%), withdrawal (24%) and spermicides (26%). In general, failure rates are highest among cohabiting and other unmarried women, among those with an annual family income below 200% of the federal poverty level, among black and Hispanic women, among adolescents and among women in their 20s. For example, adolescent women who are not married but are cohabiting experience a failure rate of about 31% in the first year of contraceptive use, while the 12-month failure rate among married women aged 30 and older is only 7%. Black women have a contraceptive failure rate of about 19%, and this rate does not vary by family income; in contrast, overall 12-month rates are lower among Hispanic women (15%) and white women (10%), but vary by income, with poorer women having substantially greater failure rates than more affluent women. CONCLUSIONS: Levels of contraceptive failure vary widely by method, as well as by personal and background characteristics. Income's strong influence on contraceptive failure suggests that access barriers and the general disadvantage associated with poverty seriously impede effective contraceptive practice in the United States.  (+info)

(8/1240) Increased health burden associated with comorbid depression in older diabetic Mexican Americans. Results from the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiologic Study of the Elderly survey.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the health burden associated with concomitant depressive symptoms and diabetes in older Mexican Americans. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Data from the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiologic Study of the Elderly were used to assess the association between high levels of depressive symptoms, measured with the Center for Epidemiologic Studies of Depression scale, and comorbid chronic health conditions, diabetic complications, functional disability, health service use, and medication use among 636 older diabetic Mexican Americans, in comparison with 2,196 older nondiabetic Mexican Americans. RESULTS: Overall, 31.1% of the older diabetic individuals reported high levels of depressive symptoms. The risks of comorbid myocardial infarction, hypertension, arthritis, and angina were significantly higher in the presence of concomitant depressive symptoms, as were the risks of diabetic complications, functional disability, incontinence, vision impairment, poorer perceived health status, and health service use among both diabetic and nondiabetic individuals. Rates were substantially higher among depressed diabetic individuals, however, in comparison to depressed nondiabetic individuals. Importantly, this increased health burden was evident even when controlling for sociodemographic risk factors, including sex, age, level of education, marital status, immigrant status, and living arrangements. CONCLUSIONS: The presence of concomitant depressive symptoms among older diabetic Mexican Americans is associated with a substantially greater health burden than is seen among diabetic individuals without depression or depressed individuals without diabetes. This association of depression with higher rates of chronic conditions, poorer functioning, and increased health service use is particularly significant in that this study was conducted among community-dwelling adults and was not confounded by the potential association of health care-seeking behavior that might occur in a medically ill sample.  (+info)


Why does the doctor want to know patients marital status?


I understand the questions about health habits, but I really have to wonder how my marital status has any bearing on my medical care.
----------

That's an interesting question.  I agree that your nearest and dearest would want to be called if you were in the ER and that you would name that person to be called, BUT this should be your current partner (unless you are a child.)  It could be a partner of the same sex.  If gay couples are not permitted to be married legally then it makes no sense to ask if you are married.

I can only think that it has something to do with legal issues or statistics which are not necessarily relevant to your personal health care.  After all STIs can be transmitted between casual acquaintances, not just partners.  If you have an STI then the doctor or hospital staff are not allowed to reveal this to your partner without your permission due to patient confidentiality, even if they try to persuade you to do this.  

It seems more important to know if you have a child or are pregnant, in case you have a condition diagnosed that can be genetically transmitted, or a condition that can be transmitted to a foetus, or during birth.


How did teen pregnancy become a social malady after being normal & acceptable throughout history?


My mother was a teenager when I was born, and since she was married before she was pregnant there was nothing wrong with that. The issue is marital status, not a young woman's age.
----------

The issue is marital status, but also that with more people going to college, people are starting to see adulthood start later.  As life expectancy gets longer, people get married later, and so "acceptable" age for a mother gets older.


Do you believe an unmarried father has the same rights as a father who is married?


I'm hearing it from both sides. On one hand people are saying that if a father is a good father then his marital status should not take away or add to his rights regarding his child. Other people are saying that if a man does not make the decision to commit (marriage) then he does not have the same rights and privileges. What do you think?
----------

From a legal stand point a father is a father is a father and he bears all the rights and responsibilities that title comes with REGARDLESS of his marital status.


What is discussed about a patient during shift handover?


Do nurses discuss patients age, marital status, OH&S, patients behaviour, patients emotional status, any altercations with clients family, new wound dressing products being used on clients wounds. Are these all discussed during handover or only some?
----------

Pretty much, yes. Apart from human chit chat, relevant details are passed on to the next shift. It is necessary and helpful to the patient and to the Staff, to enable the correct attention required or not as the case may be.


People are sometimes shocked to realize how much personal data?


People are sometimes shocked to realize how much personal data can be maintained in master patient indexes—such as marital status and problematic payment histories or cancellations. People are also surprised to realize how much medical information may be shared—for example, a doctor you are visiting for pneumonia may see that you are taking medications for mental illness.


Recall the difference between registers and registries. If you had the authority, what policy would you put in place regarding the availability of medical information for registers and registries?
----------

Well, it is important that any doctor you see knows what medications you are taking, and what physical problems you might have.

For example, what if that information about the medication didn't show up and the medicine given for pneumonia reacted with it? Or what if a certain type of painkiller could cause serious complications in people with a history of heart problems?

Your doctor should know your complete medical history, and there is nothing wrong with that; they are there to help you.


What is the symbolism of wearing an anklet?


As in, if someone saw you wearing an anklet, what assumptions would they make?

I heard they are a symbol of rebellion, beauty, freedom, marital status, or even promiscuity. 

What is your opinion?
----------

They have been worn forever by Indian women and they are basically worn to look more feminine


I think I'm in love with a woman at the blood donation clinic. How do I circumvent donating limits?


Also, how much of my medical record to the nurses get to see there? Does my medical record have personal information on it (such as where I live, marital status, etc)?

Is there any danger to trying to donate blood a few times a week?
I feel like I have a much better success rate asking women out that I've been around a dozen or so times, so I'm reluctant to use my chance before I've been around her that often.
----------

you will have so much less blood in your body than you need. you'll probably be so light-headed that you'll have to go to the hospital and have blood put in YOU. this will probably annoy the blood lady. she will hate you for unnecessarily using blood. 

ask her on a date instead, duh?


Have you ever gone to a doctor or for a medical procedure?


and had to fill out one of those ridiculously detailed forms and have been asked -
What is your race?
What is your religion?
What level of education do you have?  High school     College   Ged
Marital status?
What do any of these things have to do with a colonoscopy?  Is a Catholic Colonoscopy any different than a Jewish one?  Do I need to have a college education to pass the test?  
I find these questions annoying and none of their business.  
Does anyone know what the purpose of these questions are and does it bother you too?
Well, it's good to know that they will call Father Murphy in case the hose gets stuck up my wazoo and strangles my organs and that he'll pray reeeal slow since I aint gotta college edyacation.
If the doctor really wanted to build a relationship with me he would have the courtesy to actually read the form that took me 15 minutes to fill out.
----------

Most of these questions help us risk stratify our patients. Others are so that we may get to know our patients better and, hopefully, build a relationship with them. There are many diseases that are well documented to occur much more in the poor/uneducated, in patients of Jewish descent, patients who may be more sexually active, etc. etc. If these questions bother you this much, don't answer them and inform the nurse you don't feel comfortable answering them, that simple. But do know there is a reason behind them even if you are not aware of the reason.
