Should we clone human beings? Cloning as a source of tissue for transplantation. (1/91)

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)

The morality of abortion and the deprivation of futures. (2/91)

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)

Human embryonic stem cells and respect for life. (3/91)

The purpose of this essay is to stimulate academic discussion about the ethical justification of using human primordial stem cells for tissue transplantation, cell replacement, and gene therapy. There are intriguing alternatives to using embryos obtained from elective abortions and in vitro fertilisation to reconstitute damaged or dysfunctional human organs. These include the expansion and transplantation of latent adult progenitor cells.  (+info)

Contribution of gastrin-releasing peptide and its receptor to villus development in the murine and human gastrointestinal tract. (4/91)

Recent studies have shown that aberrantly expressed gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) and its receptor (GRP-R) critically regulate tumor cell differentiation in colon cancers developing in humans and mice. This finding suggested that the ability of GRP/GRP-R to promote a well-differentiated phenotype in colon cancer might reflect a re-capitulation of a normal role in regulating intestinal organogenesis. To determine if this was the case, we compared and contrasted intestinal development in GRPR-/- mice with their wild type littermates. GRP/GRP-R co-expression in wild type mice was only observed in villous enterocytes between N-1 and N-12. During this time frame villous growth was completely attenuated in GRPR-/- mice. The contribution of GRP/GRP-R to villous growth was due to their act in increasing enterocyte proliferation prior to N-8 but increasing enterocyte size thereafter. From N-12 onwards, small intestinal villous growth in GRPR-/- mice resumed such that no difference in this structure could be detected at adulthood between mice of either genotype. We next studied GRP/GRP-R expression in human abortuses. These proteins were co-expressed by villous enterocytes only between weeks 14 and 20 post-conception, a time frame analogous to when they are expressed in the murine intestine. Thus, this study shows for the first time that GRP/GRP-R play a transient and non-critical role in intestinal development, yet provides a rationale for their re-appearance in colon cancer.  (+info)

Prevalence of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, porcine circovirus type 2 and porcine parvovirus from aborted fetuses and pigs with respiratory problems in Korea. (5/91)

Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus(PRRSV)0, porcine circovirus type 2(PCV-2) and porcine parvovirus (PPV)0 infections were investigated as possible causes of the postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome(PMWS). Specific primers for RT-PCR and PCR were designed for the differential detection of PRRSV, PCV-2 and PPV. Using PCR, these viruses were detected in homogenized tissue samples from pigs that had respiratory of reproductive problems in the time period between 1998 and 2000; the overall prevalences were: PRRSV 31.4%, PCV-2 46.5%, and PPV 8.1%. PCV-2 was also detected in aborted fetal tissues.  (+info)

Diagnosis of natural exposure to bovine viral diarrhea in a vaccinated herd by measuring extended antibody titers against bovine viral diarrhea virus. (6/91)

Two abortions occurred in a 150-head commercial cow-calf herd. Bovine viral diarrhea was suspected and confirmed by measuring extended titers against bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in a sample of 15 breeding females. Fifteen were sero-positive and 11 had significantly high titers (1:972-1:8748), likely due to natural exposure to cattle persistently infected with BVDV.  (+info)

Descriptive epidemiology of late-term abortions associated with the mare reproductive loss syndrome in central Kentucky. (8/91)

Epidemiological and pathological findings of 433 late-term abortions associated with the mare reproductive loss syndrome (MRLS) in central Kentucky were identified by reviewing the records of the University of Kentucky Livestock Diseases Diagnostic Center. The distribution of dates of abortion was clustered during a brief period of time, presumably from a simultaneous environmental exposure. The most common pathological findings were microscopic pulmonary lesions consisting of squamous epithelial cells present in alveoli with or without concurrent infiltration of inflammatory cells (neutrophils, macrophages, or monocytes) in the interstitium or within alveoli. Isolation of a non-beta-hemolytic Streptococcus (52% of fetuses) or an Actinobacillus sp. (19% of fetuses) was common. Placentitis or funisitis was identified in 44% of fetuses. No single pathological finding, however, was pathognomonic for MRLS-associated late-term abortion. This report describes the pathological findings characterizing the MRLS-associated abortion. A cause of MRLS could not be determined from necropsy findings.  (+info)

Fig. 1 Model of epithelial portion of urogenital system of human Embryo 47 (Huber collection); female, 32 mm. crown-breech length. X 20. middle, and lower lateral folds of the urogenital sinus. These folds begin in a region which is 0.7 mm. distal or caudal to the entrance of the mesonephric ducts into the urogenital sinus, and spread out radially. Of these folds, the upper lateral folds are the most prominent. When the model is viewed from above, it may be seen that they enclose a relatively deep fossa before blending in the sagittal plane to form the uppermost portion of the urethral plate. The middle lateral folds, shorter than the upper ones, run nearly parallel to them, and are separated from the upper folds by relatively deep, narrow grooves. In their proximal portion, each middle fold presents an elevation of about 75 u; distally or caudally, each middle fold slopes downward, becoming broader and lower, and is ultimately lost in the urethral plate. The lower lateral folds taken together ...
Reproductive problems of caprine, ovine, bovine and equine significantly reduce their productivity which is of great concern of production worldwide, because most reproductive problems adversely affect the future fertility. A four year retrospective study of reproductive problems of caprine, ovine, bovine and equine presented to Nyala Veterinary Hospital, South Darfur State, Sudan was conducted with the objective to determine the prevalence of reproductive problems in study animals between January 2012 and December 2015. All Data about animals were collected from case registration books and entered into Microsoft excel sheet and analyzed based on the year of study, the disease frequency and, species of the animals. Total of 362 reproductive problems of caprine, ovine, bovine and equine were recorded between January 2012 and December 2015 from a total of 5001 examined for different clinical cases at Nyala Veterinary Hospital. This study were found to have reproductive problems comprising mastitis ...
The central nervous system of vertebrates is composed of encephalon (generally referred as brain) and spinal cord. During embryonic development, both derive from a group of cells known as neural plate, located at the medial and dorsal part of the embryo (see figure for the names of body axis). The neural plate extends rostro-caudally. The lateral margins of the neural plate move upward forming long folds, whereas the middle part moves inward forming a long invagination. As development proceeds, lateral folds, known as neural crests, get higher and closer until they contact and fuse between each other, so that a long tube is formed inside the embryo. This tube is known as neural tube and the process as primary neurulation. At the most caudal part of the embryo, however, the neural tube is formed from mesenchymal tissue by the so-called secondary neurulation. ...

To those not familiar with them, glass lizards in the genus Ophiosaurus (literally, snake [ophio-] -lizard [saurus]) look rather like a snake with ears and blinking eyes. Careful inspection of the vent area in some species will show tiny spurs, similar to a boa or python. Related to the alligator lizards (Gerrhonotus), their head and body shape are reminiscent of those species, including the conical teeth and lateral fold. They are very un-snakelike when held, being firm in the body like an alligator lizard or large skink, rather than the softly supple body associated with snakes.. Legless lizards are found in the Old and New Worlds, ranging in areas of Indonesia, southern Asia, the Near East, southeastern Europe, North Africa, and North America. The European and American legless lizards are in the family Anguidae, Anniellidae, and Xenosauridae; the Australasian ones in the family Pygopodidae. Some of the Anguidae legless lizards are called lateral fold lizards due to the pronounced lateral fold ...

To me, the argument for a gradualist approach to the ethical rightness or wrongness of abortion that depends on the gestation of the fetus is weak, lacks intellectual consistency, and seems self-serving. To the ethical straddlers concerned about gestation we must ask: is there anything qualitatively different about a fetus at, say, 28 weeks that gives it a morally different status to a fetus at 18 weeks or even eight weeks? It certainly looks different because its physical development has advanced. At 28 weeks we can see it is human - at eight weeks a human embryo looks much like that of a hamster. But are we really so shallow, so fickle, as to let our view on moral worth be determined by appearance? Even if at five weeks we can only see an embryonic pole, we know that it is human. The heart that can be seen beating on an ultrasound scan at six weeks is as much a human heart as the one that beats five months later. Indeed, from the time of conception, as soon as embryonic cells begin to ...

Henry was nearly 18 when he married 23-year-old Catherine of Aragon. Their first daughter, a girl, was stillborn. Their second child, a boy, lived only 52 days.. Four other confirmed pregnancies followed during the marriage but three of the offspring were either stillborn or died shortly after birth. Their only surviving child was Mary, who would eventually be crowned the fourth Monarch in the Tudor dynasty.. The precise number of miscarriages endured by Henrys reproductive partners is difficult to determine, especially when various mistresses are factored in, but the kings partners had a total of at least 11 and possibly 13 or more pregnancies. Only four of the eleven known pregnancies survived infancy.. Whitley and Kramer call the high rate of spontaneous late-term abortion, stillbirth, or rapid neonatal death suffered by Henrys first two queens "an atypical reproductive pattern" because, even in an age of high child mortality, most women carried their pregnancies to term, and their infants ...
Consider the current situation in Australia. In an attempt to reverse the countrys plummeting birthrate, the government of Australia pays women $5,000 for each successful birth, as reported by LifeSiteNews.com (October 23, 2008). It also awards that same amount, on "compassionate" grounds, in the case of a stillbirth. However, since late-term abortions are registered as stillbirths, a woman choosing an abortion at this time in her pregnancy is also eligible for the $5,000. As a result, according to the Australia Associated Press, some women routinely conceive for the purpose of aborting late-term in order to collect the bonus money. One woman is reported to have had three such abortions ...

LINCOLN, NEB. - Mike Flood, the 35-year-old speaker of Nebraskas legislature, had a problem: He wanted to stop the states well-known abortion provider from offering late-term abortions.. A long line of Supreme Court precedents seemed to stand in his way. But Flood believes that a 2007 decision offers hope for him and other state legislators looking for ways to restrict abortion.. Using that decision as a road map, this spring Flood wrote and won passage of legislation that bans abortions after 20 weeks. Introducing into law the concept of "fetal pain," it marked the first time that a state has outlawed the procedure so early in a pregnancy without an exception for the health of the woman.. The law shut down LeRoy Carhart, the provider who had planned to expand his practice outside Omaha and provide late-term abortions to women across the Midwest.. The importance of Floods bill is likely to be felt far beyond Nebraska. Abortion opponents call it model legislation for other states and say it ...
Appalling." That is what Planned Parenthood called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, an abortion limit that would protect second- and third-trimester children from being dismembered alive. Why is this "appalling" to Planned Parenthood? According to Planned Parenthood: because rape and incest survivors are afforded time to receive follow-up medical care and law enforcement intervention before undergoing the abortion. In reality? Planned Parenthood is appalled because the measure will cut to the core of their all-important abortion revenue.. By losing their ability to commit abortions past the halfway point in pregnancy, Planned Parenthood will lose their most valuable clientele: late-term abortion patients. Late-term abortions are the most expensive kind. You see, as a baby develops, his will to live and ability to resist death and expulsion from his mothers womb increase.

Complete article is available online.. PDF version is available online.. Trueperella abortisuis is a gram-positive bacterium that has been previously identified in aborted porcine feti and placentae located in Asia and Europe. Routine microbiological screening of extended boar semen from a US mid-Atlantic stud identified delayed growth of very small white colonies on both brain-heart infusion and sheep-blood agars after 48 to 72 hours incubation at 37°C under aerobic conditions. Isolate identification was performed using matrix-assisted laser desorption-ionization time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry, with T abortisuis identified (MALDI biotyper score = 2.103). After storage at 16°C and 72 hours post collection, total and progressive motility parameters had decreased in extended semen samples positive for T abortisuis. Further work is needed to elucidate the role T abortisuis may play in extended boar semen quality, extended semen longevity, and sow reproductive performance.. Keywords: ...

Neosporosis, Hanzlicek said, is caused by Neospora caninum, a coccidian parasite carried by dogs-wild and domestic. It was first discovered in the United States in 1988, but tests on stored older tissues have confirmed the organisms presence since at least the 1950s.. "We talk a lot about it on the dairy side, but this organism is also present in beef cow-calf operations," Hanzlicek said.. Dogs, coyotes, gray wolves and dingoes are the definitive hosts of neospora, and they become infected by eating bovine contaminated tissues such as muscle, placenta and aborted fetuses, Hanzlicek explained.. "(Neospora) goes into the intestine of these canines, undergoes some changes and then is shed in the feces," he said. "It goes through another life cycle on the ground. The cow ingests the contaminated feces, or ingests water or feed that contains the contaminated feces. It then moves to multiple tissues in the bovine: for example, muscles, brain and neurologic tissues, and the liver.". Hanzlicek said ...
The mother of a young woman who died during a late-term abortion procedure last year is now pursuing a wrongful death investigation into exactly what happened to her beautiful young daughter.. The New Mexico Alliance for Life is reporting on the investigation into the death of 23-year-old Keisha Atkins of Albuquerque who died from complications of a late-term abortion that took place at Southwestern Womens Options (SWO) in February of 2017.. Keishas mother, Tina, hired attorney Michael Seibel who is now subpoenaing all records pertaining to the actual procedure at SWO as well as at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Hospital where she died and the autopsy report that was conducted on her body.. "All I want is justice for my baby and my grandbaby and every other woman who has put her life and health at risk to endure this brutal procedure," Tina Atkins said. "My grandbaby would have been a year and 3 months now, but instead I have to deal with the constant pain of two deaths, my daughter and ...
There can really be no disputing these findings when we consider the horrific reality of the percentages of babies with a disability who are aborted before birth and these are almost always late-term abortions. Up to 90% of unborn babies with Down Syndrome are aborted and the numbers are depressingly similar for babies with conditions such as anencephaly.. These shocking rates may be, as Harkin says, because more positive alternatives such as perinatal hospice are not shared with families, and the most up-to-date research on these conditions is not relayed to them, such as the study published in Pediatrics which showed that 97% of families who brought their children with Trisomy 13 or 18 to term described their children as a happy children. Parents also reported these children enriched their families irrespective of the length of their lives.. Every Life Counts argues that language matters, and that late-term abortion is often justified as a "treatment" for these babies, whose short lives should ...
A flotation vest in the form of a buoyancy compensator for divers or a PFD (personal flotation device) for canoeists and the like including a collar and waistcoat assembly secured to the body of a user by a modified and simplified parachute style harness. The vest and harness configuration assure that a user will float on a water surface in a stable, head up and out of water position. The buoyancy compensation invention is inflatable and includes connectors for securing a scuba backpack directly thereto, thus eliminating the usual waist buckle of the backpack. The buoyancy compensation invention may include an auxiliary equipment strap, a front mounted equipment pocket and a pair of side pockets for trimming weights and/or an extra second stage of a regulator. The PFD invention is filled with a buoyant foam material and includes a lateral fold between the collar and waistcoat to assure proper and comfortable fit of the PFD against the users body.

POCATELLO, Idaho - When Pocatello police got a tip that Jennie Linn McCormack had ended her pregnancy by taking an abortion drug obtained over the Internet, they showed up at her apartment one (Page 2 of 2)
For women who were turned away or had near-limit abortions, "money" and "finances" were the most likely reasons for delay. The authors report that reasons for delay among women who were turned away for being over the gestational age limit included travel and procedure costs (58.3 percent of "turnaways" reported this issue), not recognizing the pregnancy (almost half of turnaways), insurance problems, not knowing where to find abortion care (reported by a third of turnaways), and not knowing how to get to a provider. Interestingly, the near-limit women in this study reported less difficulty deciding to have abortions than the women who had the procedure during the first trimester. This finding runs counter the anti-abortion notion that women who have late-term abortions have simply been irresponsible in waiting so long to make a decision. The authors also performed some calculations to try to estimate how many women are turned away each year due to gestational age limits. They concluded that ...

Having family in Japan I feel I need to speak a bit on Japan, abortion, and Mizu Kuyo-. While abortion is readily available in Japan and post conception birth control is not uncommon, even in Japan unrestricted elective abortion is only legal in the first trimester. My Japanese wife was in disbelief when she learned the standard pro-choice position, commenting that there was no question that late-term abortion was murder. With regard to abortion and Mizu Kuyo-, most Japanese I have spoken to clearly acknowledge that abortion is killing the baby (none of that lump of cells rationalization BS). But most Japanese also believe in some form of reincarnation. So, while that babys soul will have another chance to live, the Mizu Kuyo- is often meant to comfort the spirit and apologize to it for not giving it the chance to live at that time. ...

A new undercover video of a longtime Planned Parenthood abortionist features the doctor discussing how to deliver intact fetuses in late-term abortions in order to harvest high quality body parts, how to deal with infants born alive, and how calling these victims "babies" is "creepy.". A disturbing new video just released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the same organization that exposed the trafficking of fetal body parts in the abortion industry, features Dr. DeShawn Taylor, previous Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Arizona, graphically discussing how to deliver intact fetuses and what to do when they are born alive.. The conversation takes place while she is networking at a reception at a Planned Parenthood conference and is introduced to CMP investigators posing as buyers of fetal tissue. She confirms that she does elective abortions on healthy fetuses up to 24 weeks gestation.. When the investigators ask her about obtaining intact fetal organs, Dr. Taylor replies, "Its ...
One of the few doctors who still performs late-term abortions in the United States, George Tiller has been picketed, bombed and shot in the arms.
The journalist who wrote the article, Deborah Davies, gives the impression that she is very much in favour of a womans right to choose, but she is clearly unhappy with the number of abortions which are performed after 12-14 weeks gestation... and obviously shocked by what medical staff have told her about the procedures used for such late-term abortions. I cant agree with her description of abortions in the first 12 weeks needing only a "simple" suction procedure - its all pretty gross when you consider that a human life is at stake - but Im interested to read that more and more people are beginning to question where a foetus is considered to be a "baby" in the making ...
Lastly, Ive also heard a lot of people argue that compromise is giving in, accepting something less than victory on critical issues and not continuing to work towards that total victory of whatever critical issue is perceived to be right/just/correct/moral/etc. This is incorrect as well, because accepting a compromise does not mean that you have to stop working towards achieving your goals on that issue, it just means that you are settling for a partial victory in the short term, where you know that a total victory is impossible. You can still work towards the total victory of your position in the long term while accepting compromise in the short term, after all. For example, agreeing to a ban only on late-term abortion with considerations for the health of the mother now does not mean I would have to give up working towards a total ban on abortion in the future, it just means that Im smart enough to recognize that I am NOT going to get a total ban on abortion now, now matter how much I ...

Background Portugal has a strong tradition of conventional western healthcare. So it provides a natural case study for the relationship between Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Western Medicine (WM). This work aims to test the relationship between CAM and WM users in the diagnosis and treatment stages and to estimate the determinants of CAM choice. Methods The forth Portuguese National Health Survey is employed to estimate two single probit models and obtain the correlation between the consumption of CAM and WM medicines in the diagnosis and treatment stages. Results Firstly, both in the diagnosis and the treatment stage, CAM and WM are seen to be complementary choices for individuals. Secondly, self-medication also shows complementarity with the choice of CAM treatment. Thirdly, education has a non-linear relationship with the choice of CAM. Finally, working status, age, smoking and chronic disease are determinant factors in the decision to use CAM. Conclusion The results of this work
Finding biomarkers that reflect the amount of peripheral nerve damage (peripheral neuropathies) and that the biomarker will quickly drop in value in response to to effective treatment are desired goals. The tools we need for developing biomarkers for equine neurodegenerative diseases are not available. These tools include a laboratory model for each neurodegenerative disease, putative treatments, and a money bin.. There is an alternate path leading to biomarker development and that is the horizon we are chasing. The biomarker quest project identifies natural cases of disease with neurodegeneration followed by evaluating the data from those cases. Sifting through the data is a process of eliminating the negative, selecting the positive, and interpreting the in-between. I hear a jingle in there somewhere! Generally diseases follow a typical course, or pathogenesis. Interpreting enough cases points toward the direction we should take and where to concentrate our assets. Often clues to a direction ...
In the New England Journal of Medicine, the researchers confirm what doctors have already known - that the vaccine has sharply reduced the number of cases in children but that its protection does not last long. With fewer natural cases of the disease, the study says, unvaccinated children or those whose first dose of the vaccine fails to work are getting chickenpox later in life, when the risk of complications is higher. "If youre unvaccinated and you get it later in life, theres a 20-times greater risk of dying compared to a child, and a 10- to 15-times greater chance of getting hospitalized," said Dr. Jane Seward of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, who worked on the study....The United States has been vaccinating against chickenpox since 1995. But tests have shown that the vaccine is not very effective in 15 percent to 20 percent of children who receive only one dose. A second dose would provide extra protection, but it is not clear how much.." - Reuters, New York ...
Yes, unfortunately, the gassing of Jews was once viewed as OK by a powerful group of twisted Darwinian thinkers in Germany. Though it was OK to them, its not OK to our largely post-Christian humanist culture. On the other hand--tragically--a dominant segment of our culture thinks late-term abortions are OK. Once upon a time, the Aztecs religious convictions made it OK to slaughter thousands of people in their religious ceremonies. Some Catholics came along in the 16th century and thought that was a barbaric, and so slaughtered the Aztecs. Our moral history is a messy one, in which murder has *not* been viewed as ALWAYS wrong. You and I and present company may believe so, and I truly hope that value wins out in this world someday. But thats up to culture, and, in a small way, up to each of us who is a part of our culture ...

Vermont Legislative Research Shop. Late-term Abortions. Medical Perspective On Late-Term Abortions. Late-term abortion occurs during the third trimester of pregnancy around the 27th week of gestation. Two different techniques are used for this abortion procedure. Intact Dilation and Extraction (partial birth) removes the fetus from the uterus through the vaginal canal and creates a suction to remove the brain and spinal fluid from the skull. The American Medical Association recommends that intact dilatation and extraction procedure not be used unless alternative procedures pose a greater risk to the woman and that abortions not be performed in the third trimester except in cases of serious fetal anomalies incompatible with life (Epner 1998). However, this abortion procedure may minimize the trauma to the woman s uterus, cervix, and other organs (Epner 1998). Dilation and Extraction (D&X) is another late-term method. The Doctor dismembers the fetal part that has been brought out of the vagina ...
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - El Salvadors Supreme Court heard opening arguments Wednesday in a landmark abortion case in which a woman suffering from kidney failure and lupus has not been allowed to terminate a pregnancy in which the fetus is given no chance of surviving.
In a sample of 15 individuals, weights ranged between 600 and 3,250 g (1.32 and 7.17 lb), and snout-vent lengths were between 17 and 32 cm (6.7 and 12.6 in).[3] Their eyes can be nearly 2.5 cm (1.0 in) in diameter. The conspicuous tympanum has a diameter around 0.5 cm (0.20 in) and is separated from the eye by about 5 cm (2.0 in) in adults. Goliath frog eggs and tadpoles are about the same size as other frogs despite their very large adult form. A lateral fold extends from the eye to the posterior portion of the tympanum. Toes are fully webbed, with large interdigital membranes extending down to the toe tips. The second toe is the longest. The skin on the dorsum and on top of the limbs is granular. Dorsal coloration is green sienna, while the abdomen and ventral part of the limbs are yellow/orange. They have acute hearing, but no vocal sac, and also lack nuptial pads. ...
Associate Justice Sandra Day OConnor, joined by Associate Justices White and Rehnquist found  the second-physician requirement of 188.030.3 is constitutional because the State has a compelling interest, extant throughout pregnancy, in protecting and preserving fetal life; The pathology-report requirement of 188.047 is constitutional because it imposes no undue burden on the limited right to undergo an abortion, and its validity is not contingent on the trimester of pregnancy in which it is imposed; and Assuming, arguendo, that the State cannot impose a parental veto on a minors decision to undergo an abortion, the parental consent provision of 188.028.2 is constitutional because it imposes no undue burden on any right that a minor may have to undergo an abortion ...
Germantown, MD, Nov. 27, 2013 (OperationRescue) For the third time this year, one of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart s abortion patients were rushed to Shady Grove Hospital (SGH) in Maryland for emergency treatment after a late-term abortion. On Tuesday at 11:45 a.m., an ambulance arrived at Germantown Reproductive Health Services and loaded a women for transport to the SGH emergency room. Sources inform Operation Rescue that the women underwent emergency surgery at the hospital. Video taken by a local pro-life activist showed a woman covered head-to-toe in a sheet and that neither Carhart nor any of his staff accompanied the ...
By Cheryl Sullenger. Beverly Hills, CA - It appears as an upscale doctors office in the tony Southern California community of Beverly Hills. Photos of the interior of the office show lighted artwork on the walls and furnishings that would make a woman of means feel at home.. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, the Pro-Choice Medical Center, owned and operated by "Abortionist to the Stars" Josepha Seletz, is a very late-term abortion facility with a worrisome safety record. Operation Rescue has obtained 911 records related to two medical emergencies that occurred there so far this year. Previously obtained records document at least three more such incidents within the past two years.. The most recent call to 911 took place on May 3, 2017. The recording indicates a 33-year old female had just completed an "outpatient pregnancy termination" and required emergency care for bleeding after the abortion.. "Patient had an outpatient pregnancy termination and were trying rule out a little bit ...

Over in the Senate, the Health and Human Resources Committee was busy. No, the senators werent doing anything to help the actual people of their state. But they totally have the backs of the fetuses. Yeah, the committee said it was time for West Virginia to outlaw abortions after 20 weeks, not the 24 weeks that some senators wanted. This was the kinder, gentler version of the House bill. The House made it a felony for doctors who perform abortions after 20 weeks. The Senate said it should just be a misdemeanor. The House banned all late-term abortions except for cases where carrying a pregnancy to term would cause permanent damage or death to the woman. The Senate added that it would be cool to abort if the fetus wasnt viable. See? Compassion. A woman isnt forced to carry around a fetus thats sure to die quickly and horribly ...
So, why do these babies die? The Guttmacher Institute has looked at the reasons for late-term abortion, and the reasons are chilling. First, the top-line finding is clear: "[D]ata suggest that most women seeking later terminations are not doing so for reasons of fetal anomaly or life endangerment." Instead, there were "five general profiles of women who sought later abortions, describing 80% of the sample." These women were "raising children alone, were depressed or using illicit substances, were in conflict with a male partner or experiencing domestic violence, had trouble deciding and then had access problems, or were young and nulliparous [had never given birth ...

By Heather Smith Thomas. One of the most challenging parts of breeding season is getting every mare safely in foal. Dr. James Bailey, a practitioner with Royal Vista Southwest, an equine reproduction-focused practice in Purcell, Okla., deals with broodmare challenges on a regular basis. Mare owners should always be thinking about the next breeding season, looking at mares in the fall before they cease cycling (anestrus), he said. This is a good time to do a work-up on mares that are open. Our basic work-up here includes palpation, ultrasonic evaluation, examination of the cervix, uterine biopsy, and uterine culture (assessing for microbial growth in the laboratory). The culture should include aerobic bacteria, and the veterinarian might also want to culture for anaerobic bacteria as well as fungal infections-depending on the age of the mare and the problems that have been encountered with her in the past. At this time we also try to diagnose and evaluate any conformation problems and do a ...

This idea of the C. abortus becoming latent in the host ewe is a concern as it means that when buying in new animals, great care needs to be taken when sourcing replacement stock. Once in a flock the disease is difficult to eradicate. While initially only one or two animals may lose their lambs during initial season, the ease of transmission and difficult of diagnosis may eventually lead to an outbreak of up to 30% losses in one season. These losses can be reduced by the use of antibiotics in the midst of lambing time, however the damage already done to the tissues involved in the infection are irreversible and vaccination still remains the best option ...

By Mark Hennessy and Jamie Smyth in Brussels. The European Court of Human Rights has found Poland guilty of a breach of human rights in an abortion case that could have implications for Ireland.. Three Irish women have taken a case to the court that has similarities with the Polish case. The court may begin hearing the Irish case, lodged in 2005, later this year.. The Polish case concerned Alicja Tysiac, a woman who was told by three doctors that her eyesight could suffer if she proceeded with a pregnancy. However, all three doctors declined to certify Ms Tysiac for an abortion.. They refused, according to the judgment, because they said there was not a certainty that her retina would detach during childbirth, even though they agreed that pregnancy and delivery constituted a risk to her eyesight. In the event, Ms Tysiacs eyesight suffered a steep decline. She is no longer able to see farther than 1.5 metres and is classified as significantly disabled.. Abortion is legal in Poland in ...
347-286-7277. ALBUQUERQUE - Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released a new video taken from an undercover phone call placed to Southwestern Womens Options late-term abortion facility that clearly explains how some second and third trimester abortions are performed in New Mexico.. A healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant is given an overview by an abortion worker detailing how the 3-4 day labor and delivery procedure will take place. Late-term abortion is a grueling process that begins every Tuesday with the killing of a baby by a lethal injection of the medication digoxin and culminates at the end of the week when labor is induced and the mother delivers a stillborn child. Pre-born babies can survive outside the womb at 25 weeks, and sometimes earlier in pregnancy.. In a recent rare interview, Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Womens Options claims that he provides abortions to women "who are dying if they do not get the abortion, women who have severe congenital ...

Last year the Victorian parliament passed the Abortion Law Reform Act, the freest abortion laws in the world. The new laws have opened the floodgates to late-term abortions, right up to and including nine months.. While the deep moral conflicts between pro-lifers and pro-choicers are long-running, the current law has brought to the fore a whole new issue of unprecedented discrimination.. An unheralded section in the Act and a world first, section 8(1), takes away the right of medical practitioners with a conscientious objection to abortion to decline any involvement in the act of abortion. These practitioners are now forced to supply the names of other health professionals willing to perform, direct, authorise or supervise an abortion.. This new law has flagrantly stripped away the rights of doctors to decline any involvement in an abortion. The legal requirement of a pro-life doctor to refer a patient to a pro-abortion doctor cannot be dismissed as inconsequential. Nor can it be argued that the ...
Womens reproductive rights are under attack as never before.

In fact, I think something very interesting has come out of all this. In the past, Dorries has frequently argued that she is in fact "pro-choice", but simply believes that certain changes to the law need to be made to improve the advice given to women and prevent late-term abortion. But her attacks on humanists, who broadly tend to be pro-choice, but will disagree among themselves on many aspects of the debate, suggest to me a determination to discredit the views of anyone who is opposed to the anti-abortion lobby. She might object to being nominated for our Bad Faith Award, but by using it as a reason to launch into two diatribes against "humanists" in general, she is displaying contempt for a large section of society within which, if she took the time to do some research, she would find a wide range of nuanced views on the abortion debate ...

Christins baby was given a fatal shot of digoxin to the heart, and Christins cervix was then filled with laminaria. She and her family were then sent to a hotel about a mile away. The next morning, Christin delivered her dead child in her familys van on the way to the abortion clinic. A D&C procedure was performed, and a tear on her uterus was found and sutured. Carhart then administered the drug RU-486, which is not approved for use in late-term abortions. But Carhart apparently wanted an "insurance policy". Christin and her family were then sent back to their hotel again.. Within 24 hours, Christins condition began to deteriorate. Sepsis was sweeping through her body, but she was diagnosed with dehydration and simply given fluids. The staff made no documentation of this, and Christin and her family were sent away again.. That evening, Christin began vomiting, fainting, and bleeding. Sometime between midnight and 4am, Cathy Reavis, an unlicensed nurse, showed up at the hotel to "assist" the ...
Introduction. Feline obesity is the most common nutritional disorder. Many drugs has been used with variable results. The purpose of this investigation is evaluate the efficacy of chromium picolinate in the management of feline obesity.. Material and methods. 26 overweight or obese cats from natural cases were used according to a body condition scale. They were divided in two groups A and B respectively. Both groups fed a feline adult diet (Royal Canine) according with the caloric density calculation and caloric needs. The group B was treated with 20 micrograms chromium picolinate per kg of body weight per os every 48 hours. All the cats were weighed weekly under the same conditions. Results. After 25 weeks the cats from the group B reached the target weight and return to a body condition scale of 3. The mean 6.9 kg - 8.2 kg (7.2 +/- 0.3) (p,0.01 students test). The cats from the group A reached the target weight and return to a body condition scale in 36 weeks. 6.8-8.2 kg (7.2+/- 0.3) (p,0.05 ...

There wasnt much specification regarding the timeline or location, so the below are just the general process that will occur over a long period of time.. Mummification: In particularly dry areas like deserts or mountain peaks, the remains would mummify, much like this creepy fellow. Even with regular decomposition mummification can still occur naturally, so without scavengers and bacteria getting in the way much of the life in dry areas would desiccate and mummify.. Petrifaction: In areas with water, the remains would petrify. Water would leak into the pores of tissue and bone, and minerals within that water will precipitate out and saturate the remains, resulting in a combination of organic and inorganic remains. This process is called permineralization, and is the reason we have dinosaur fossils. Without bacteria, the soft tissue remains would also go through this process and become fossilized. Over time, much of the organic remains would slowly be dissolved by water and replaced by minerals, ...

As summer became fall I was still searching for answers. We were talking about having another baby as well. Our arms were empty and some people that we talked to said that another baby would help with the pain of the loss. I became busy working on something that I felt hospitals may be interested in. Here is was 2004 and I had given birth to stillborns. When I left the hospital I left with a nice packet on grief. In it I was told how to talk to my child when grandpa dies, and what to do if a loved one commits suicide. In it there was nothing to help me with the loss of stillborn babies. How to grieve the loss of TWO lives. I was in the hospital about to give birth to TWO stillborn babies and in the room I had no pen, no paper, and no contact information as far as cemeteries, caskets, funeral homes. I also had no ideas. I was still in shock. I was to write an obituary. If someone would have mentioned putting a poem in the paper along with what I wrote, or clothing my girls, or any ideas of ...

A hearing will be held on November 29-30 to determine what, if any, disciplinary action the Board will take, which could include suspension or revocation of Sellas New Mexico medical license.. Sella is a former associate of the late George Tiller, having worked for him at his infamous late-term abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas. After that clinic closed in 2009, Sella went to work for Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Womens Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, an affiliate of the troubled National Abortion Federation, conducting the same grisly late-term abortion procedure she learned in Wichita.. A former employee at Tillers facility claimed that she once witnessed Sella intentionally stab to death an infant born alive during an abortion.. Sella cancelled her Kansas medical license the same week the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts notified Operation Rescue that a disciplinary petition had been filed against one of Sellas Kansas co-workers, Ann Kristin Neuhaus, who had provided improper ...
One of the main drugs used in medicinal abortions, mifepristone, formerly known as RU-486, has been a subject of political strife for decades. In the 1990s, abortion opponents, fearing that it would make abortion too easy and acceptable, fought to prevent American approval of the drug, which had been widely used abroad.. In 2000, the F.D.A. approved the combination of mifepristone, a steroid that breaks down the lining of the uterus, and misoprostol, a prostaglandin that induces contractions. The agency did so based on clinical trials involving a large dose of mifepristone in the clinic, a dose of misoprostol in the clinic two days later, then a third clinic visit on the 14th day to verify that the embryo had aborted. The procedure was recommended for use through seven weeks of pregnancy.. Since then, studies have shown that mifepristone works as well at one-third the previously used dose, that it is safe to take the second medication at home, and that the procedure is safe and effective through ...
Topeka The Kansas Supreme Court temporarily blocked a Sedgwick County grand jurys access Tuesday to patient records from abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.. The grand jury is investigating whether Tiller, one of the nations few late-term abortion providers, has broken Kansas laws restricting abortion, as many abortion opponents allege. The grand jury subpoenaed the medical files of about 2,000 women, including some who decided against having abortions.. The grand jury also subpoenaed information about current and former employees and referring physicians.. Tillers attorneys asked the Supreme Court to quash the grand jurys three subpoenas, and the court agreed to block their enforcement until it considers the issue.. The court set a Feb. 11 deadline for retired District Judge Paul Buchanan, who is presiding over the grand jurys investigation, and Judge Michael Corrigan, the countys chief judge, to file any objection to the courts action. The judges then have until Feb. 25 to file their ...
