He’s even urging the Food and Drug Administration to make birth control pills available without prescription. But he is still listed as a sponsor of a federal personhood bill. His campaign didn’t respond to questions about the discrepancy. In the absence of a response by Gardner, or his spokespeople, Cunningham should have cited the Gardner campaign's previous erroneous statement that the federal personhood bill, called the Life at Conception Act, is simply a ...

*  Secular Pro-Life Perspectives: Abortion advocates dance around personhood
... Abortion advocates dance around personhood. As many of you know, Mississippi voters will soon have the opportunity to recognize all human beings, from conception, as legal persons. They oppose personhood amendments because they want abortion to remain legal-- but the arguments they give in the media dance around that issue entirely. Instead, they claim that the amendment will ban contraception it won't, send women to prison for miscarrying abortion will be subject to the same high standard of proof as any other crime, or could have all sorts of unintended consequences, like lowering the drinking age to 20 years and 3 months after birth. Abortion is quite clearly the focus of the personhood amendment. Simply put, pro-lifers are the majority in Mississippi. So instead, they are trying to trick pro-life voters into believing that the personhood amendment will do something that it won't. Whether or not Mississippi's personhood amendment is ultimately successful, we must ...

The contraception mandate goes into effect, though still with controversy, and personhood activists are suing to get on the ballot in Oklahoma. August 1 st was a big day, though a quiet one, for reproductive justice, because that’s the day that the initial roll out of the contraception mandate began. New plans bought on or after that day are required to have contraception available without a co-pay, and when plans renew, as they do annually, they also have to add the contraception benefit. By taking a lot of costs of prenatal care off the table, in fact, you’re probably going to see women who are a little on the fence about whether to have a baby decide to go ahead and do it. It’s not just prenatal care, either. While direct prenatal and newborn care are big deals, the contraception mandate ...

But no media outlet that I could find reported that four years ago Romney said he supported the federal equivalent of the Mississippi personhood measure. And if you’re Mitt Romney, and you aren’t shy about your position that life begins at conception, then your support of legislation granting legal rights to the “unborn” is an endorsement of personhood at the national level.

I find the entire thing incredibly troubling since, much like SOPA, these bills are trying to accomplish one thing but actually doing a whole other thing. In this case, they re outlawing birth control. So, I was ever so pleased and amused to see Constance Johnson s response to Oklahoma s bill. I think she explains herself better than I ever could so read it all for yourself. Share this: Twitter. Facebook. Google. Pinterest. Tumblr. Like this: Like Loading...

An article in today’s Dallas Morning News about H1N1 influenza did a pretty good job of covering the bases: vaccination and vaccine safety and availability, prevention, and the possible effect of a pandemic on the ability of health providers to care for large numbers of flu sufferers. This part of the story caught my eye:. Last spring, news stories popped up about airlines pulling sick passengers from planes as a precaution against spreading the H1N1 virus. We could well see repeats of this scenario: ushers asking sick people to leave the theater, bus drivers yanking people out of their seats and depositing them onto the street. These enforcement tactics are unethical, according to Carlo, who also is an expert in the esoteric realm of public health ethics. He said that removing symptomatic people from public places is discriminatory. For every sneezing and ...

Saving Face: Preserving the “Person” in Alzheimer’s Disease. The face. We train all senses to glimpse some fleeting flame of the one we knew in the way we knew them before. The person with Alzheimer’s disease can’t be brought back in the way we knew them. This happens despite the morphed façade, the altered mask created by Alzheimer’s disease, and helps us to still genuinely see the person we know and love. In truth, we help this person “save face” through making a gesture in our minds by which we intend to preserve their dignity and honor. When we still see clearly who they are to us, when we train our eyes to peer past the unspeaking façade of Alzheimer’s, we bring about the translation of our mental images into actions which build up the personhood of those with Alzheimer’s disease. Then, we must validate that which is good, essential and true, so we promote dignity and quality of life. Validate your loved ones as they are now. If we validate only who they were in the past, ...

You are here: Home / National / Election Aftermath: Women Are Persons, Too. Election Aftermath: Women Are Persons, Too. November 3, 2010 by Carol King. On the day after the midterm election of 2010, the outlook for new legislation to bolster a feminist agenda looks a little grim. There will be new anti-choice officeholders in the U.S. Congress and the Senate, as well as in state houses and state legislatures. Obviously we’ll have to redouble our efforts to educate the electorate about the consequences of further limits on our right to safe legal abortion and contraception, let alone gain support for the other life and work issues feminists care deeply about. 71 percent of Colorado voters rejected the “personhood amendment” to the state constitution, which would have applied the term “person” from “the beginning of biological development.” If it had passed, it would not have just put abortion rights in danger, but also threatened the legality of contraception , in vitro fertilization and stem cell ...

In the weeks that followed, the Republicans launched a war on contraception. Today, contraception and abortion are legal, but, state by state, laws are chipping away at women’s access to both contraception and abortion. Voters seemed to have rejected “personhood” because it would not only criminalize all abortion, but would probably outlaw hormonal forms of birth control as well. After Mississippi rejected “personhood” and its threat to contraception and after Colorado rejected it twice, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul attended Paul by satellite a Personhood USA candidates forum in South Carolina. The bill—HR 347, or the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011—was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate, while only Ron Paul and two other Republicans voted against the bill in the House of Representatives 388-3.

Understanding church teaching on stem cell research. President Obama has decided to forego this therapeutic embryonic stem cell research for now, I suspect out of respect for our faith claims, but the pursuit of common ground asks us to be cautious about overstating the science. 11, 2008, the pro-life office statement seems to rely on a claimed support from science to a far greater extent than the revelation-based Catechism: The Church recognizes that the obligation to protect unborn human life rests on the answer to two questions, neither of which is private or specifically religious. The first is a biological question: When does a new human life begin. Read in conjunction with the Catechism, the statement of the pro-life office is apt to leave those seeking to understand church instruction understandably confused. And the confusion has real consequence for stem cell research, especially as the pro-life office statement asserts that the burden of proof for any differing positions rests on others. Life’s ...

It has been interesting and heartening to see the massive response by the women of Virginia – and the whole country – to come together with justified outrage against the state-sanctioned rape bill requiring women seeking abortion to undergo medically unnecessary and costly trans-vaginal ultrasounds. “Penetration against your will is penetration against your will. There is no medical evidence that PTSD is higher among women that have had abortions than among women that were forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, no medical evidence that there’s an increased chance of suicide. The supposed increased risk of breast cancer was disproven years ago, and the risk of not being able to conceive post abortion is no higher than is the risk of not being able to conceive again post pregnancy. It is not necessary to educate women seeking abortions on post traumatic stress, increased chance of suicide, increased risk of breast cancer, or possible infertility because research has shown that none of these purported ...

I guess the state of Utah will decide. I should hope, though, that the state recognizes that getting pregnant by a man over the age of 40 is also a reckless act. Previous miscarriages. Getting pregnant again could be a reckless act. That's right: this study found that low pre-pregnancy body mass index was a risk factor for first-trimester miscarriage. Coffee.

... October 6, 2015. Roses in winter George Will 7/13/2006 12:01:00 AM - George Will. NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- The long dying of Louise Will ended here recently. It was time. At 98, her body was exhausted by disease and strokes. Dementia, that stealthy thief of identity, had bleached her vibrant self almost to indistinctness, like a photograph long exposed to sunlight. It is said that God gave us memory so we could have roses in winter. Dementia is an ever-deepening advance of wintery whiteness, a protracted paring away of personality. It inflicts on victims the terror of attenuated personhood, challenging philosophic and theological attempts to make death a clean, intelligible and bearable demarcation. Is death the soul taking flight after the body has failed. That sequence -- the physical extinguished, the spiritual not -- serves our notion of human dignity. However, mental disintegration mocks that comforting schema by taking the spirit first. In the very elderly the mind can come and go, a ...

Abortion › Are pro-lifers self-righteous. Are pro-lifers self-righteous. Are pro-lifers self-righteous. Are we so absorbed with the rights of the unborn and abortion that we fail to find common ground with pro-choicers and work with them. Therefore, there are pro-lifers who run crisis pregnancy centres so that women can have the support and care they need to ensure they choose life for their children. Now, I will grant the pro-choice side the fact that they truly want choice. I just want to ask a question: What are pro-choicers doing to ensure that pregnant women actually have a choice. I do not know of any pro-choice pregnancy centres but if they are helping pregnant women in any way, please let me know. I think pro-choicers may also believe we are self-righteous because there are some pro-lifers, although not all, who disagree with birth control. In other words, abortion has to remain legal because for the last few decades it has been available as “back-up birth control”. However, pro-lifers bring it up ...

*  Henry David Thoreau - Everything2.com
He is also famous for some essays against the American government, most notably Civil Disobedience. The essay Civil Disobedience 1849 grew out of his overnight stay in prison as a result of his refusal to pay a tax supporting the Mexican War. Here are some of my favorite Thoreau quotes from Walden : Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity. Let the [noon find thee by other lakes, and the night overtake thee everywhere at home. 133 Not till we are lost, in other word s not till we have lost the world, do we begin to find ourselves, and realize where we are and the infinite extent of our relations. 256 Let every one mind his own business, and endeavor to be what he was made. Thoreau 's philosophy on moral individualism is distinctively American. " Not until we are lost, in other words, not till we have lost the world do we begin to find ourselves and realize where we are and the infinite extent of our relations ". According to Thoreau, all persons by nature of personhood are innately invested with unique ...

*  The Anime Review
... News Archive. Cat Soup. Experimental animation is always a hard subject to broach, not because there aren't plenty of features to see, but virtually no way to see them. Even when they're cute and flippant, they're darn hard to find; when they're experimental, they often wind up in the eternal black hole reserved for unreleased independent films. Cat Soup is full of spectacularly vivid fever dreams--fever dreams worth waking up for. The idea behind the program which is best described that way instead of as a plot is that Nyaako, Nyatta's sister, is very sick. With only half a soul, Nyaako is virtually a rag doll experiencing but not reacting to life, and their journey to retrieve the lost part of Nyaako's personhood or cathood, if you like consumes the rest of the film. There's a half-hour worth of animation in this piece, so you'd think I'd describe more of it to you. The events fall together most illogically at times, but Cat Soup has dream logic about it--everything works since we reach a ...

*  Print News - Ariel Castro's Murder of Unborn Highlights Abortion Debate
... Ariel Castro's Murder of Unborn Highlights Abortion Debate. The news that Ariel Castro might be tried for murder for ending the pregnancies of the women he held captive has brought to the fore an older debate over fetal homicide laws. Since 1996, Ohio, like 37 other states, has had a law that intentionally ending a pregnancy is murder. Murder charges can be brought against someone who causes a miscarriage, or murdering a pregnant woman will recognize two victims to the crime. The law specifies that murder charges can only be brought when ending the pregnancy is "unlawful," thus allowing women to have an abortion without it being considered murder. Pro-life and pro-choice groups view these laws differently. Pro-choice groups often oppose fetal homicide laws because they worry they will establish a right to life for the unborn in the law. When they have supported the laws, they couch their support in terms of the mother's choice: ending a pregnancy against the mother's will takes away her choice to have ...

*  .. Does Darwinism Devalue Human Life? .. Human Exceptionalism Navigator
As I read more about the development of evolutionary ethics, I discovered that many scientists, social thinkers, and especially physicians in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Germany did indeed use Darwinian arguments to devalue human life. Hitler was strongly influenced by the Darwinian ideology of the eugenics movement, and his writings and speeches clearly reflect it. 8 Thus Hitler justified his racial views by appealing to Darwinian science. According to Dowbiggin, "The most pivotal turning point in the early history of the euthanasia movement was the coming of Darwinism to America." 9 This held true in Britain, as well, for Kemp informs us: "While we should be wary of depicting Darwin as the man responsible for ushering in a secular age we should be similarly cautious of underestimating the importance of evolutionary thought in relation to the questioning of the sanctity of human life." 10 The worldview of most early euthanasia advocates was saturated with Darwinian ideology, and they ...

*  .. Death, Freedom, and Cold Winters .. Are some human lives worth more than others? .. If you knew
Death, Freedom, and Cold Winters July 13th, 2009 by Christian Rudder Tweet. First of all, thanks everybody for your comments and emails over the last couple weeks. Just to know that so many people have taken the time to read our writing and question our intelligence is an honor beyond measure. Today, we’re going to revisit the mapping program from our first post two weeks ago and discuss some new questions we’ve plotted, starting with the below plots. For anybody who didn’t see our previous map post, Rape-Fantasies and Hygiene By State, these show the responses of OkCupid users to selected user-submitted match questions. States answering “Yes” more often than the national average are greenish; states more often saying “No” are reddish. Yellow states are near the mean yes/no proportion. Are some human lives worth more than others. 268,864 people have answered. This graph struck me right off because our map-making program is supposed to color the states from solid green to solid red, and there’s no true red on ...

making happy one human life friday november canisters i took this photo about a year ago on a nice afternoon spent alone walking around and exploring some new streets someone had tied up these old woodgrain look canisters with elastics and string and set them in the oddest spot in front of a row of abandoned houses people do the strangest things i am posting this a year later because the photo reminds me of the kind of solitude i enjoyed that day i like to spend time with friends and the people i care about but i need this quiet time alone without work or distractions to regain my perspective and sense of self when it gets lost at some point i discovered that photography functions for me like a kind of meditation in motion a way for me to remind myself of what i see how i see it and what that says about me it is me whispering in my own ears i am writing this because it relates to this collection of photos i finally cleaned up pulled together and put online and the words i wrote to describe my intentions ...

(1/137) Cloning, killing, and identity.

One potentially valuable use of cloning is to provide a source of tissues or organs for transplantation. The most important objection to this use of cloning is that a human clone would be the sort of entity that it would be seriously wrong to kill. I argue that entities of the sort that you and I essentially are do not begin to exist until around the seventh month of fetal gestation. Therefore to kill a clone prior to that would not be to kill someone like you or me but would be only to prevent one of us from existing. And even after one of us begins to exist, the objections to killing it remain comparatively weak until its psychological capacities reach a certain level of maturation. These claims support the permissibility of killing a clone during the early stages of its development in order to use its organs for transplantation.  (+info)

(2/137) Should we clone human beings? Cloning as a source of tissue for transplantation.

The most publicly justifiable application of human cloning, if there is one at all, is to provide self-compatible cells or tissues for medical use, especially transplantation. Some have argued that this raises no new ethical issues above those raised by any form of embryo experimentation. I argue that this research is less morally problematic than other embryo research. Indeed, it is not merely morally permissible but morally required that we employ cloning to produce embryos or fetuses for the sake of providing cells, tissues or even organs for therapy, followed by abortion of the embryo or fetus.  (+info)

(3/137) Persons and their copies.

Is cloning human beings morally wrong? The basis for the one serious objection to cloning is that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. I sketch a fragment of moral theory to make sense of the objection. I then outline several ways in which it might be claimed that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. In particular, I look at various ideas connected with autonomy. I conclude that there is no basis to the claim that, because of what a clone is, clones would have much worse lives than non-clones. I therefore reject the claim that cloning human beings is morally wrong.  (+info)

(4/137) Equality and selection for existence.

It is argued that the policy of excluding from further life some human gametes and pre-embryos as "unfit" for existence is not at odds with a defensible idea of human equality. Such an idea must be compatible with the obvious fact that the "functional" value of humans differs, that their "use" to themselves and others differs. A defensible idea of human equality is instead grounded in the fact that as this functional difference is genetically determined, it is nothing which makes humans deserve or be worthy of being better or worse off. Rather, nobody is worth a better life than anyone else. This idea of equality is, however, not applicable to gametes and pre-embryos, since they are not human beings, but something out of which human beings develop.  (+info)

(5/137) Prenatal diagnosis and discrimination against the disabled.

Two versions of the argument that prenatal diagnosis discriminates against the disabled are distinguished and analysed. Both are shown to be inadequate, but some valid concerns about the social effects of prenatal diagnosis are highlighted.  (+info)

(6/137) Survey of Japanese physicians' attitudes towards the care of adult patients in persistent vegetative state.

OBJECTIVES: Ethical issues have recently been raised regarding the appropriate care of patients in persistent vegetative state (PVS) in Japan. The purpose of our study is to study the attitudes and beliefs of Japanese physicians who have experience caring for patients in PVS. DESIGN AND SETTING: A postal questionnaire was sent to all 317 representative members of the Japan Society of Apoplexy working at university hospitals or designated teaching hospitals by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. The questionnaire asked subjects what they would recommend for three hypothetical vignettes that varied with respect to a PVS patient's previous wishes and the wishes of the family. RESULTS: The response rate was 65%. In the case of a PVS patient who had no previous expressed wishes and no family, 3% of the respondents would withdraw artificial nutrition and hydration (ANH) when the patient did not require any other life-sustaining treatments, 4% would discontinue ANH, and 30% would withhold antibiotics when the patient developed pneumonia. Significantly more respondents (17%) would withdraw ANH in the case of a PVS patient whose previous wishes and family agreed that all life support be discontinued. Most respondents thought that a patient's written advance directives would influence their decisions. Forty per cent of the respondents would want to have ANH stopped and 31% would not want antibiotics administered if they were in PVS. CONCLUSIONS: Japanese physicians tend not to withdraw ANH from PVS patients. Patients' written advance directives, however, would affect their decisions.  (+info)

(7/137) On becoming non-judgmental: some difficulties for an ethics of counselling.

The growth in the availability of counselling services has been accompanied by growing concern about the conduct of counsellors, which in turn has led to the expressed need for an ethics of counselling. This paper will argue that there is an inherent tension between this need and the central tenets of one variety of counselling, client-centred counselling. The tension is identifiable on the basis of an inquiry into the nature of moral judgment which results in the recognition of the implicit value base in client-centred counselling. It is only when this value base is made explicit that any adequate ethics of counselling becomes a viable possibility.  (+info)

(8/137) The morality of abortion and the deprivation of futures.

In an influential essay entitled Why abortion is wrong, Donald Marquis argues that killing actual persons is wrong because it unjustly deprives victims of their future; that the fetus has a future similar in morally relevant respects to the future lost by competent adult homicide victims, and that, as consequence, abortion is justifiable only in the same circumstances in which killing competent adult human beings is justifiable. The metaphysical claim implicit in the first premise, that actual persons have a future of value, is ambiguous. The Future Like Ours argument (FLO) would be valid if "future of value" were used consistently to mean either "potential future of value" or "self-represented future of value", and FLO would be sound if one or the other interpretation supported both the moral claim and the metaphysical claim, but if, as I argue, any interpretation which makes the argument valid renders it unsound, then FLO must be rejected. Its apparent strength derives from equivocation on the concept of "a future of value".  (+info)
