Accuracy of prenatal echocardiographic diagnosis and prognosis of fetuses with conotruncal anomalies. (1/83)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to determine the accuracy of the prenatal echocardiographic diagnosis and prognosis of fetuses with conotruncal anomalies. BACKGROUND: The accuracy of prenatal echocardiographic diagnoses of cardiac lesions has been reported, but no previous reports specifically address fetal conotruncal anomalies. METHODS: Medical records of 61 fetuses, in which a fetal diagnosis of a conotruncal anomaly was made, were reviewed. Disease entities included were tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), double outlet right ventricle (DORV), transposition of the great arteries (TGA), and truncus arteriosus (TA). RESULTS: Fetal diagnosis was established at a median of 24.5 weeks' gestation. Termination of pregnancy was chosen in 31% (19/61) of cases. Postnatal assessment of the diagnosis was not obtained in 12 cases. Excluding two sets of conjoined twins, accurate prenatal diagnosis including definition of the great artery orientation was achieved in 36 of 47 cases (77%). Seven of 17 fetuses with DORV anatomy, of which 6 were thought to have a subpulmonary ventricular septal defect (VSD), had incorrect prenatal assessment of the great artery relationships. One fetus thought to show features of TA had aortic atresia with VSD and normal-sized left ventricle. Of the 42 pregnancies that continued, 15 had major extracardiac malformations and/or chromosomal abnormalities of which one died in utero with trisomy-13 and TA. A further nine died within the neonatal period. Among the 27 fetuses without a documented chromosomal or major extracardiac anomaly, 13 (48%) died. Overall, the survival rate beyond 28 days of life was 52% (22/42). In contrast, 75% (6/8) of fetuses with TOF, excluding the absent pulmonary valve syndrome, survived. CONCLUSIONS: Conotruncal anomalies can be diagnosed by prenatal echocardiography with a high degree of accuracy. Defining the exact spatial relationship of the great arteries is problematic in some fetuses. The overall prognosis for fetuses with a conotruncal anomaly is poor, with the exception of uncomplicated TOF.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis and selective abortion: a challenge to practice and policy. (2/83)

Professionals should reexamine negative assumptions about the quality of life with prenatally detectable impairments and should reform clinical practice and public policy to improve informed decision making and genuine reproductive choice. Current data on children and families affected by disabilities indicate that disability does not preclude a satisfying life. Many problems attributed to the existence of a disability actually stem from inadequate social arrangements that public health professionals should work to change. This article assumes a pro-choice perspective but suggests that unreflective uses of prenatal testing could diminish, rather than expand, women's choices. This critique challenges the view of disability that lies behind the social endorsement of such testing and the conviction that women will or should end their pregnancies if they discover that the fetus has a disabling trait.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis for detecting congenital malformations: acceptance among Israeli Arab women. (3/83)

BACKGROUND: A high rate of consanguineous marriages exists within the Israeli Arab community, with approximately half occurring between first cousins. This contributes towards a high incidence of congenital malformations and autosomal recessive diseases, many of which are detectable at prenatal diagnosis. OBJECTIVES: To assess the levels of both awareness and acceptance regarding prenatal diagnosis and termination of pregnancy among a group of Arab women in order to devise the optimal means of providing genetic counseling and general health services. METHODS: A total of 231 Arab women of childbearing age were interviewed 3 days postpartum to assess their knowledge of prenatal diagnosis and termination of pregnancy, their willingness to undergo prenatal diagnosis, and their opinions on termination of pregnancy in the event of a severely affected fetus. RESULTS: Half the women believed that prenatal testing is not an effective (or accurate) tool for diagnosing an affected fetus. A quarter had poor knowledge on prenatal diagnosis, and a quarter believed that prenatal diagnosis does provide the correct diagnosis. Ninety-five percent said they would agree to undergo prenatal diagnosis; and in the event of a severely affected fetus, 36% said they would agree to a termination of pregnancy, 57% said they would not, and 7% were undecided. CONCLUSIONS: There is a need for special intervention programs, with guidance by health professionals, geneticists and religious authorities, that will inform this population on the increased risk associated with consanguinity, stress the importance and effectiveness of prenatal testing to identify severe congenital malformations, and help them to accept prenatal diagnosis and termination of pregnancy if indicated.  (+info)

Psychological sequelae of elective abortion. (4/83)

A mild, short, depressive and guilt ridden period following abortion is quite common, but a severe psychological reaction is rare. The indication for the abortion and the preabortal psychological state of the patient are the two most important factors. Almost all reported instances of postabortion psychoses have occurred in patients who had severe preabortal psychiatric problems. Women undergoing abortion for socioeconomic or psychosocial indications appear to be at minimal risk for long-term negative psychological sequelae. In contrast, women in whom abortion is carried out because of exposure to rubella and the risk of fetal malformation, maternal organic disease or the prenatal diagnosis of a genetically defective fetus are at greater risk and may need supportive psychotherapy.  (+info)

Antenatal screening and its possible meaning from unborn baby's perspective. (5/83)

In recent decades antenatal screening has become one of the most routine procedure of pregnancy-follow up and the subject of hot debate in bioethics circles. In this paper the rationale behind doing antenatal screening and the actual and potential problems that it may cause will be discussed. The paper will examine the issue from the point of view of parents, health care professionals and, most importantly, the child-to-be. It will show how unthoughtfully antenatal screening is performed and how pregnancy is treated almost as a disease just since the emergence of antenatal screening. Genetic screening and ethical problems caused by the procedure will also be addressed and I will suggest that screening is more to do with the interests of others rather than those of the child-to be.  (+info)

Relation between trihalomethane compounds and birth defects. (6/83)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the risk of birth defects relative to exposure to specific trihalomethanes in public water supplies. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted based on data from a population based perinatal database in Nova Scotia, Canada and from the results of routine water monitoring tests. The cohort consisted of women who had a singleton birth in Nova Scotia between 1988 and 1995 and who lived in an area with a municipal water supply. The birth defects analyzed included neural tube defects, cardiovascular defects, cleft defects, and chromosomal abnormalities. Two of the four trihalomethane compounds occur in large enough concentrations to be analyzed (chloroform and bromodichloromethane (BDCM)). RESULTS: Exposure to BDCM at concentrations of 20 microg/l or over was associated with an increased risk of neural tube defects (adjusted relative risk (RR) 2.5, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.2 to 5.1) whereas exposure to chloroform was not. Exposure to BDCM of 20 microg/l and over was associated with decreased risks of cardiovascular anomalies (RR 0.3, 95% CI 0.2 to 0.7). There was a suggestion of an increased risk of chromosomal abnormalities associated with exposure to chloroform, and no evidence of any association between either trihalomethane compound and cleft defects. CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort, differences were found in the RR associated with exposure to chloroform and BDCM for each of the congenital anomalies under study. These findings point to the importance of examining specific byproduct compounds relative to risk for these birth outcomes and in particular implicate BDCM and other correlated disinfection byproducts in the aetiology of neural tube defects.  (+info)

Is current practice around late termination of pregnancy eugenic and discriminatory? Maternal interests and abortion. (7/83)

The attitudes of Australian practitioners working in clinical genetics and obstetrical ultrasound were surveyed on whether termination of pregnancy (TOP) should be available for conditions ranging from mild to severe fetal abnormality and for non-medical reasons. These were compared for terminations at 13 weeks and 24 weeks. It was found that some practitioners would not facilitate TOP at 24 weeks even for lethal or major abnormalities, fewer practitioners support TOP at 24 weeks compared with 13 weeks for any condition, and the difference in attitudes to TOP between 13 weeks and 24 weeks is most marked for pregnancies which are normal or involve a mild disorder. It is argued that a fetal abnormality criterion for late TOP is inconsistently applied, discriminatory and eugenic. Four possible moral justifications for current practice are examined, each of which would require significant changes to current practice. I argue in favour of a maternal interests criterion for any TOP.  (+info)

Is there a 'new ethics of abortion'? (8/83)

This paper argues that the central issue in the abortion debate has not changed since 1967 when the English parliament enacted the Abortion Act. That central issue concerns the moral status of the human fetus. The debate here is not, it is argued, primarily a moral debate, but rather a metaphysical debate and/or a theological debate--though one with massive moral implications. It concerns the nature and attributes that an entity requires to have "full moral standing" or "moral inviolability" including a "right to life". It concerns the question when, in its development from newly fertilised ovum to unequivocally mature, autonomous morally inviolable person does a human being acquire that nature and those attributes, and thus a "right to life". The paper briefly reviews standard answers to these questions, outlining some problems associated with each. Finally there is a brief discussion of one way in which the abortion debate has changed since 1967--notably in the increasingly vociferous claim, especially from disability rights sectors, that abortion on grounds of fetal abnormality implies contempt for and rejection of disabled people--a claim that is rebutted.  (+info)

EU: Draft AXON cost model for setting European-wide wholesale fixed call termination rates (FTRs) published by the… https://t.co/mbtbvTG1LG. ...
The South African Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act, No. 92 of 1996, allows termination of pregnancy (TOP) for severe fetal abnormalities at any gestational age (GA).1 Despite the provision of free antenatal care to all pregnant women, the majority of those attending public health institutions book for antenatal care in the late second or third trimester of pregnancy and miss the opportunity for early prenatal diagnosis of major lethal congenital abnormalities and early intervention if required. Limited resources and expertise at public health institutions compound the problem of diagnosing fetal abnormalities in early pregnancy. Consequently, many abnormalities are detected only after the fetus is viable, i.e. at ,24 weeks gestation.. Congenital abnormalities likely to result in the birth of a severely mentally or physically handicapped child necessitate discussing outcomes and possible grounds for TOP. Decisions regarding late termination of pregnancy (LTOP) should not involve just ...
The new album by FETAL AUTOPSY sounds like a group of very angry pathologists. Their riffs, knives, drums, scalpels, vocals and saws had been edged in the best cutlery ever. This American brutal death metal aristocrat Ray Bell has been taking his inspiration from more classical period of death metal and that´s why their new album is very raw, cruel and sanguinary like a beast. Imagine some kind of a cell where some morbid and nasty musically kinky rituals are done. You have two choices: A) the album would catch you and it would kill you or B) you would run away because you would be scared! Only the strongest will survive. This album has an enormous pressure. It is cruel and full of crazy melodies. As a proud member of the fast deadly metal cult I have to say that I´m satisfied. The world is a very bad place to live, however the „Backwoods Bloodshed" is more dangerous and darker. I actually liked this album with a very few tones and in the end of the listening I was knocked out in the corner ...

Gynecologists have finally begun making noises against sex selective abortions. The fraternity that openly held out guarantees of delivering only males by ensuring that female fetuses were eliminated and made easy money while performing this greatly needed social service is beginning to feel the heat.
What did Sophie do? She put off deciding until the last moment, and then impulsively chose for her son to survive and her daughter to die. Sons are frequently favored (for example as in China the ratio is now highly skewed to males) because a male can (in theory) have many more descendents than can a female. The preference for sons is well known, and is responsible for the selective abortion of females and infanticide of females. Michelle Dawson has blogged about this (as a somewhat peripheral issue). Ironically, the instinctive preference for sons in anticipation of more grandchildren means that many parents in China with a single son will have no grandchildren because there are many millions more males than females. The instinctive feeling that sons are a better reproductive bet than daughters has been rendered wrong by modern circumstances. It may be "wrong" and be known to produce an undesirable result but people still cant stop themselves from doing it. They are making the same choice that ...

114 During the processing phase of the collection, data checking was undertaken to ensure key priority outputs were produced to high quality standards. As a result, some estimates will have been checked more comprehensively than others. It is not feasible to check every item reported by every business, and therefore some anomalies may arise, particularly for small area estimates (i.e. Statistical Local Area (SLA) and below). To present these items geographically, agricultural businesses are allocated to a mesh block based on where the business reports the location of their main agricultural property. Anomalies can occur if location details for agricultural businesses are not reported precisely enough to accurately code their geographic location. In addition, some businesses operate more than one property, and some large farms may operate across mesh block and SLA boundaries, but are coded to a single location. As a result, in some cases, a particular activity may not necessarily occur in the ...

Heidi Crowter has Down syndrome, and a message to those who might think people like her are disposable: dont screen us out. Heidis message went viral when she joined a group of Pro-Life advocates lobbying Parliament to turn down a proposal that would expand prenatal screenings on the nations publicly-funded healthcare system to include more widespread Down syndrome testing. Crowter knows that the screenings are often used to eradicate babies who, like herself, have Down syndrome, before they ever have a chance to be born.. In fact, the U.K. sees alarming termination rates compared to countries like the U.S. While 30% or more of U.S. babies diagnosed in utero with Down syndrome are aborted, the number is much higher in the U.K., with at least half of babies diagnosed with the condition aborted.. The termination rate for babies with Down syndrome has become such an epidemic in England that even people who otherwise self-identify as pro-abortion are speaking against the injustice. In January, we ...
In China 117 boys are born for every 100 girls, according to the latest statistics, the Xinhua news agency said. A normal newborn sex ratio is 103-107 boys for 100 girls. Senior family planning official Zhao Baige said the government plans to reverse the imbalance by 2010 by banning sex-selective abortion and launching campaigns to end the tradition of valuing boys more than girls. "Any individual or medical organisation offering illegal sex-selective abortion services will take legal responsibility," Zhao said. Zhao blamed the imbalance on the traditional preference for boys, which remains strong in the countryside despite campaigns emphasising sex equality, and a poor rural social security system which forces people to become dependent on their children in old age. Zhaos commission is undertaking a national "Care for Girls" project to educate people to give up their traditional preference for male children. Additionally, parents who have two girls, as well as one-child parents and those with ...
One of the major changes that have taken place in India over the last two decades is a significant shift in the sex ratio at birth, as techniques for prenatal sex determination have become more widely available. There has, however, been little analysis of which factors influence the decision to abort female fetuses at the individual level. Furthermore, the sparse literature does not address the relationship between fertility, spacing and the demand for sex selective abortions, which may lead to biased estimates. Using data from the three rounds of the National Family and Health Survey this paper relies on the observed spacing between births to examine the determinants of the demand for sex selective abortions. By employing a discrete hazard model it is possible to simultaneously control for the fertility and abortion decisions, while taking account of censoring and unobservable characteristics that might affect either.. ...

Plant growth and development depend on energy provided by carbohydrates and the coordination of its storage and mobilization. Energy-consuming processes must be controlled to coordinate growth with energy availability in an ever-changing environment. One of the most energy-demanding cellular processes is protein synthesis: energy has to be provided for amino acid and tRNA synthesis, peptide bond formation, and the biogenesis of the translational machinery [1]. In Arabidopsis rosettes, 10% of the proteins were estimated to be ribosomal proteins, but these numbers are likely higher in rapidly growing tissues [2]. In addition, a large number of non-ribosomal proteins are needed for initiation, elongation, termination, and ribosome recycling during mRNA translation [3]. Translation is considered to be regulated at initiation [4], while elongation and termination rates are proposed to be less affected in most conditions [5]. Initiation rates control the loading of the mRNA into polysomes, affecting ...
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 ...
Besides topics I think are too difficult, I ask students to avoid arguments I fear will be faith based. I dont allow students to write about general abortion laws; they can write about selective abortion as the result of amniocentesis, but thats about it. I dont allow discussions about sex education or prayer in public schools either. Why? Well, in my hard-won experience, students have a tendency to write faith based arguments for those topics, which are so difficult to grade. Im trying to help students develop the ability to write a sustained, supported, logical argument, and faith exists beyond those criteria, which I know as a person of faith. When a student writes, "God teaches us that this is wrong," it pains me to write, "In the United States, laws need to represent those people who dont believe in God, too-why else is this wrong? What secular reasons can you provide?" over and over and over again. Faith based writing is important, but because it doesnt rely upon causal reasoning, ...

By Madhu Gurung. YOU will not spare a second glance for 35-year old Kamla Mehra. She looks like any middle-aged Indian housewife, waiting at the crowded Lajpat Nagar bus stop for her children to return from school.. The bus arrives and two excited figures a girl in long plaits and a cherubic six-year-old boy lurch out and hurl themselves at her. Kamla smiles and hugs the boy to her bosom. She pats the girl affectionately enough and hands her brother s bag to carry, while she holds her son s hand and leads him home. The boy talks ceaselessly, basking in her attention.. He will never know his mother s secret, nor will she ever tell him. He will never know that a sister had been killed in his mother s womb to make way for him.. Kamla is just a face in the crowd one amongst the nameless sea of women who undergo tests to detect the sex of the foetus and selectively about if the tests show it s a girl. And as India s sex ratio shows a steady deficiency of women, selective abortions carry on for the ...

The magnitude of the CIEs in soil carbonate for the four smaller, post-PETM events scale nearly linearly with the equivalent event magnitudes documented in marine records. In contrast, the magnitude of the PETM terrestrial CIE is at least 5 ‰ smaller than expected based on extrapolation of the scaling relationship established from the smaller events. We evaluate the potential for recently documented, nonlinear effects of pCO2 on plant photosynthetic C-isotope fractionation to explain this scaling discrepancy. We find that the PETM anomaly can be explained only if background pCO2 was at least 50 % lower during most of the post-PETM events than prior to the PETM. Although not inconsistent with other pCO2 proxy data for the time interval, this would require declining pCO2 across an interval of global warming. A more likely explanation of the PETM CIE anomaly in pedogenic carbonate is that other environmental or biogeochemical factors influencing the terrestrial CIE magnitudes were not similar in ...

However, the risk of an unsuccessful pregnancy has been reported to be high in these patients, with a fetal death rate of 50% in one series and of 33% of 36 cases pooled from the literature.12 13In the largest previous study, conducted 20 years ago, Stevenet al reported 30 pregnancies in 16 women.13 Fetal loss was high (23%) due to spontaneous abortions in three instances and elective termination of the pregnancies in four because of the belief that the pregnancy would adversely affect the course of the liver disease.13 Among the remaining 23 pregnancies, there were two stillbirths (9%) and the neonatal death rate was also 9%. From pooled data, largely prior to 1975, Steven and colleagues13 noted that the abortion rate reported from 36 pregnancies was 11%, termination rate was 6%, perinatal death rate 20% (from 30 completed pregnancies), and a maternal death rate of 14% was ...
Posted on 06/13/2007 11:59:38 AM PDT by LUMary. Eugenic Darwinism by: Wendy Cook, June 04, 2007 Charles Darwin is partly to blame for eugenics, according to Discovery Institute senior fellow John West. Merriam-Webster s defines eugenics as a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed. Darwin said that because of our sense of compassion we couldn t simply follow the dictates of reason and get rid of the unfit, but he certainly provided the logical basis for why we should do so and later the eugenicists quoted this passage and they weren t quoting it out of context, because in The Descent of Man Darwin really did argue that our progress as humans is dependent on a struggle for survival and that we were really impeding human progress by trying to undercut that struggle for survival, Dr. West explained to an audience at the Family Research Council recently. With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those ...

Over 35 million children have been aborted worldwide so far this year. Abortion numbers for India are hard to gauge because many dont get reported, but its more than half-a-million babies, and could be as many as seven million. The preference for male children is strong in India, leading to sex selective abortions and significantly fewer female children. This has exacerbated sex-trafficking of women.. ...
This study has shown a prevalence of cardiovascular anomalies in Downs syndrome of 42% in keeping with other published reports.8,-,10 Prevalence has remained relatively unchanged over time, although it does appear to be increasing in recent years. This may be due to improved diagnosis and the more widespread use of routine echocardiographic screening for infants with Downs syndrome.11 There has also been an increase in prenatal diagnosis of Downs syndrome,12 13 and the use of fetal echocardiography.14 15. The North East of England is well suited for population-based studies as it encompasses a well-defined geographical area with little cross-referral, reducing the risks of ascertainment bias. Data from our region have previously shown an increase in the prevalence of pregnancies affected by Downs syndrome and that, contrary to previous predictions, the prevalence of live born Downs syndrome has remained static, with a live birth prevalence of around 1.09 per 1000 live births.4 These babies ...
A recent study published in the British medical journal, The Lancet, indicates a connection between the increase in wealth and literacy rates in India and the increase in the practice of sex-selective abortions. Researchers from several different institutions used census data from 1991-2011 and data from Indias National Family Health Survey to examine approximately 250,000 births occurring between 1990 and 2005.. The study illuminates data from the 2011 Indian Census that represents the lowest ratio of girls to boys since 1947. For children under the age of six, the census found about 7.1 million fewer girls than boys. Ten years ago the gap was around 6 million, which indicates a sharp incline in sex-selective abortions. The Lancet study estimates that there have been 4-12 million selective abortions of girls in India during the past thirty years.. There is a cultural preference in many Asian countries for male children because of their religious, civic, and economic roles in society. The ...
Sex selection and abortion of female foetuses by Indian couples living in Canada has been rampant in the last couple of decades. And Indian couples are more likely to resort to selective abortion of female foetuses if it is a third or fourth birth. As a result, fewer than expected girls were born to these…
The one loop-hole, however, is the rhythm method -- refraining from sex during a womans fertile period -- one of those handy laws of nature which "God has wisely ordered." If you and your wife/husband just make sure to have sex only at those times when shes/youre less likely to get pregnant, then you can have your cake and eat it, too -- avoid unwanted prenancies, while not interfering with conception or having to opt for a selective abortion. (The rhythm method, by the way, is estimated to be anywhere from 75-90% effective in avoiding unwanted pregnancies ...
Eggs are collected with a syringe during a medical collection by the mother. The father have an easier time giving the sperm (no invasive procedure needed). The eggs and the sperm are then mixed togeteher in a test tube/cell culture dish in a medium that will provide the cells the good conditions to survive. When some embryosstart to develop (at a few cwlls stages) they are reinserted directly in the mother uterus to finish developing. Since all the eggs do not fixe themselves on the membrane to finsh their growth, and then get lost, or simply do not survive the transfer, there is usually more than one embryo reimplanted, hence the higher number of multiple birth (or the need of selective abortion) with in-vitro procedures ...
Click to enlarge. HIV in Zimbabwe is disappearing like snow in the desert, in dramatic contrast to its neighbouring countries, mystifying epidemiologists, one of whom firmly believes the anomaly can be attributed to the countrys relatively high level of education. Brian Williams of the South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA), was speaking at the 2nd Consortium to Respond Effectively to the AIDS/TB epidemic (CREATE) in Cape Town during the first week of November. He said reliable data showed that HIV/ AIDS prevalence in Zimbabwe had halved over the past 12 years, dropping from 30% in 1998 to 15% now.1 He suggested this could be put down to the countrys population having benefited from a superior education that enabled them to absorb and respond to prevention messages. My theory is that Zimbabwe had the best-educated population in southern Africa - and prevention messages only work if people are able to understand, internalise and act on them, he added. ...

Downloadable! Although it is commonly believed that trade liberalization results in higher GDP, little is known about its effects on poverty and inequality. This paper uses the sharp trade liberalization in India in 1991, spurred to a large extent by external factors, to measure the causal impact of trade liberalization on poverty and inequality in districts in India. Variation in pre-liberalization industrial composition across districts in India and the variation in the degree of liberalization across industries allow for a difference-in-difference approach, establishing whether certain areas benefited more from, or bore a disproportionate share of the burden of liberalization. In rural districts where industries more exposed to liberalization were concentrated, poverty incidence and depth decreased by less as a result of trade liberalization, a setback of about 15 percent of Indias progress in poverty reduction over the 1990s. The results are robust to pre-reform trends, convergence and time-varying
Downloadable! We examine the effect of regionalism on unilateral trade liberalization using industry-level data on applied MFN tariffs and bilateral preferences for ten Latin American countries from 1990 to 2001. We find that preferential tariff reduction in a given sector leads to a reduction in the external (MFN) tariff in that sector. External liberalization is greater if preferences are granted to important suppliers. However, these complementarity effects of preferential liberalization on external liberalization do not arise in customs unions. Overall, our results suggest that concerns about a negative effect of preferential liberalization on external trade liberalization are unfounded.

U.S. Sen. David Vitter is lead author in the Senate of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (S.138) that would prohibit discrimination against the unborn in the form of selective abortion on the basis of sex. The bill was introduced on Jan. 24, 2013, after a similar Senate bill died in the previous session of Congress. But so far the bill has languished in the Senate Judiciary Committee.. Sen. Vitter wants to move the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act bill along in the Senate, and Louisiana Right to Life supports that effort. We have launched a petition drive for the purpose of urging U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu to co-sponsor the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act and ask her to do everything necessary to pass this act in the U.S. Congress.

But then I thought of something: there are other traits where most of the variation seems associated with a few loci of large effect. Europeans light skin is in large part due to SLC24A5, SLC45A2, TYR and OCA2. 4-6 loci probably account for around 90% of the variation. What about eye color? OCA2 is responsible for 3/4 of the variation, with TYR rounding out much of the balance. Skin color, eye color, even hair color; these are gross outward phenotypes controlled by a few loci of large effect! The loci are of such large effect I think that South Asian couples of middle complexion who want lighter skinned offspring can now feasibly engage in selective abortions to "load the die" so that their offspring are the "optimal" combination of their genes. We have the information and the technology. Then I began thinking, do people really care about total genome content in relation to their offspring? Weve floated the possibility of switching a few hundred loci to shift the expected phenotypic value in ...
Predipositions to cancer for example, conceals the fact that important environmental factors are left out of consideration. These include the hundreds of acknowledged industrial carcinogens polluting our environment. It is well-known that the incidence of cancer increases with industrialization and with the use of pesticides. Women in non-industrialized Asian countries have a much lower incidence of breast cancer than the women living in the industrialized west. However, when Asian women emigrate to Europe and the United States, their incidence of cancer jumps to that of the white European women within a single generation. Similarly, when DDT and other pesticides were phased out in Israel, breast cancer mortality in pre-menopausal women dropped by 30%. The overwhelming causes of ill-health are environmental and social. That is the conclusion of a growing body of research findings. Environmental influences swamp even large genetic differences ...

Ill be deliberately provocative here. The inevitable result of predominant atheism would be something closely akin to Stalinism. This has been the case throughout human history. To me the most telling example is the reign of Antiochus Epiphanes (215-164 BC). He was ruler of the most enlightened civilization to that time anywhere in the world, and ended up as the object of what the 20th Century would label a cult of personality - in the process, subjecting the Jews to something horribly akin to Hitlers Final Solution. Very similar results for Napoleon in the 19th Century. Lets not even go into the endlessly horrible object lessons of the 20th Century. There seems to be a fatal inevitableness to the process, whenever purely human reason is enthroned as the Highest authority. ...

As the debate over doctor-assisted suicide explodes in the U.S., disability rights activists - many of whom are disabled themselves-implore legislators to study data regarding discrimination, pressure, and coercion against disabled individuals to end their own lives. Assisted suicide laws, they argue, do not denote progress in a society where disabled individuals suffer a lifelong flurry of insinuations and explicit suggestions that their lives are not worth living.. This attitude begins before disabled individuals are even born, with doctors and "experts" urging parents of preborn children with prenatal diagnoses of disabilities to abort their children. They argue that hardship diminishes the value of the childs life - with some going so far as to insist, in eugenic fashion, that the world is a better place without persons deemed "unfit" to live.. The problem of discrimination against the disabled stretches far and wide, and threatens to implode with a number of states considering the ...

Trade liberalization has been promoted by the World Bank and IMF based on the argument that openness to trade will contribute to economic growth and development. More specifically, trade liberalization was expected to reduce poverty and improve food availability for local consumption, and thereby contributing to the reduction of malnutrition and to the overall efforts of food security of a nation. Despite the lack of consensus, most developing countries took the challenge to liberalize their economies. Quarter of a century later, to our knowledge, there is little or no consensus about the empirical relationship between trade liberalization events and food availability/security. The purpose of this paper is to examine empirically the effect of trade liberalization on food availability in selected developing countries. An econometric analysis of panel data seems to suggest that trade liberalization exerted a negative short run effect on food availability in the sample countries. The overall (or net)
Diagnosis of imperforate anus (the absence of a normal anal opening)is usually made shortly after birth by a routine physical examination. Imperforate anus occurs in about 1 in 5000 births and its cause is unknown. Children who have imperforate anus may also have other congenital anomalies. The acronym VACTERL describes the associated problems that infants with imperforate anus may have: Vertebral defects, Anal atresia, Cardiac anomalies, Tracheoesophageal fistula, Esophageal atresia, Renal anomalies, and Limb anomalies.

No hemizygosity was found in three (2%) of the patients with CAFS by FISH using nine DiGeorge critical ...
Sex Selection Migrates to Canada. Easy access to abortion and advances in prenatal sex determination have combined to make Canada a haven for parents who would terminate female fetuses in favour of having sons, despite overwhelming censure of the practice.. Arguing that Canadian lawmakers silence on the issue is undermining the status of women, theyre calling for federal legislation to uphold societal and professional values opposing sex-selective abortion, either through a direct ban or restrictions on the disclosure of fetal gender. They also contend that sex selective abortion is forcing physicians to compromise between their ethical obligations to discourage sex selection and legal obligations to respect their patients autonomy.. "It really works against everything we believe in Canada in terms of equality. It works against our Charter [of Rights and Freedoms]," says Kerry Bowman, a bioethicist at the University of Torontos Joint Centre for Bioethics in Ontario. "At very least, it would ...
In China and India, there are several charities (and other government incentives) who provide financial incentives in conjunction with the ban of sex-selective abortion. Its still not preventing the number of sex selective abortions or infanticide. In China, for example, there is a huge preference for boys because in their culture boys take care of their aging parents. There is also restrictions on birth. Those who violate those restrictions are forceably aborted or forced to pay a fine, which many cant afford. These restrictions include not being able to marry until the age of 27. Only being able to obtain a birth permit if married. Only able to obtain a birth permit for one child unless a) you have a daughter and live in rural China or b) you are an only child. This means that if you have siblings and you live in the city, you only have one chance. One chance to have a boy to take care of you in your old age. And two chances at maximum. So is it really a free choice? Is it really just simply ...
How is this the Wests fault? If couples in China and India choose to selectively abort girl fetuses using Western technology, this is no different than Asian countries fighting wars against each other using Western technology. Moreover the selective abortion of girls in India is already a violation of Indian law since passage of the 1994 "PTND" Act. Technology is neutral; how it is used is up to individuals. Barbed wire was invented for cattle fencing, which made animal husbandry - and therefore improved diet for humans - possible on a larger scale. It also made the stalemate on the Western Front during World War One so bloody and drawn out. Since it is cheap, easy to install and can be electrified, it also made the economical operation of modern concentration camps possible..

They also proved the basis for the development of nerve agents; Tabun was ...
Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as "unfit," a plan she said would be the "salvation of American civilization.: And she also spike of those who were "irresponsible and reckless," among whom she included those " whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers." She further contended that "there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped." That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered "unfit" cannot be easily refuted.. While Planned Parenthoods current apologists try to place some distance between the eugenics and birth control movements, history definitively says otherwise. The eugenic theme figured prominently in the Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. She published such articles as "Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics" (June 1920), "The Eugenic Conscience" (February 1921), "The purpose of Eugenics" ...

It is thought that there are several different types of El Niño events, with the canonical eastern Pacific and the Modoki central Pacific types being the two that receive the most attention.[45][46][47] These different types of El Niño events are classified by where the tropical Pacific sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies are the largest.[47] For example, the strongest sea surface temperature anomalies associated with the canonical eastern Pacific event are located off the coast of South America.[47] The strongest anomalies associated with the Modoki central Pacific event are located near the International Date Line.[47] However, during the duration of a single event, the area with the greatest sea surface temperature anomalies can change.[47] The traditional Niño, also called Eastern Pacific (EP) El Niño,[48] involves temperature anomalies in the Eastern Pacific. However, in the last two decades, nontraditional El Niños were observed, in which the usual place of the temperature anomaly ...
As quoted in The New Diagnostics by Dorothy Nelkin and Laurence Tancredi, 1989 (pg 13-14) Although the old eugenic generalizations have been cast off, the logic behind them persists, refueled from diagnostic tests and justified in terms of efficiency, effectiveness, and cost. Thus some geneticists suggest the social importance of improving the "gene pool." For … Continue reading ». ...

For the most part human growth hormone is produce recombinantly via bacterial hosts. This has led to an ample supply of this substance. Since the supply has increased, HGH has actually created new markets for itself. In the past, when it was limited, its use was confined to those whose growth was significantly less than average. Doctors have begun prescribing this substance for people who are well within normal height, but are less than average. While this in and of itself may not be troubling to some, (it bugs me) it does point to the growing eugenic attitudes in this country, that seem to be backdooring their way back into mainstream beliefs ...

Most of the time, most of the clinical diagnoses for which the patient is being treated are correct, even after autopsy. However, 5-10% of autopsies disclose findings that would have changed treatment and perhaps resulted in a better outcome, had they been known. Physicians, especially at this academic teaching hospital, can directly benefit for knowing these results and this improves their practice. Often at autopsy a clinical mystery is solved, such as "What was that shadow in the lung?" or "Why did he develop shock and die?" Autopsy findings usually bring a degree of peace and closure to the next of kin. The next of kin often learn: 1) the clinical diagnoses and treatment were correct; 2) the patients disease was far-advanced and nothing more could have been done. Occasionally, autopsy findings may suggest a disease or condition that is inherited or contagious; the living may then be screened or tested for such a disease. Sudden, unexpected death is another event that may be better dealt ...

Congenital hemangioma can be distinguished from infantile hemangioma because it is fully developed at birth. It forms during prenatal life and has reached its maximal size at birth. Congenital hemangioma can even be diagnosed in utero by prenatal ultrasound. Unlike IH, CH is more common in the extremities, has an equal sex distribution, and is solitary, with an average diameter of 5 cm. It commonly presents in the head and neck and in the lower extremities. Congenital hemangioma are divided into 2 subgroups: the rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICHs) and the non-involuting congenital hemangiomas(NICHs). The rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma, RICH, presents at birth as a solitary raised tumor with a central depression, scar, or ulceration surrounded by a rim of pallor. It is noted for its involution, which typically begins several weeks after birth and is completed no later than 14 months of age.[9] After regression RICH may cause a residual deformity, such as atrophic skin and ...
To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to describe differences in cardiovascular disease, extracardiac anomalies and outcomes between fetuses with levocardia and fetuses with dextrocardia.. Heterotaxy syndrome is classified as right isomerism if the patient exhibits bilateral structures with morphologically right features, such as bilateral trilobed lungs and bilateral morphologic right bronchi, and as left isomerism if the patient presents with morphologically left bilateral features, such as bilateral bilobed lungs and bilateral morphologic left bronchi [9]. Unfortunately, these structural characteristics cannot be detected prenatally. Several associated sonographic signs have been applied to classify isomerisms during the fetal period [3]. Right isomerism is suspected when the fetus presents with situs ambiguous, cardiac defects or juxtaposition of the aorta and IVC. Left isomerism is suspected when the fetus presents with situs ambiguous and an interrupted IVC or heart block. ...
Klaus Schmidt-Rohr. Chemistry Department, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts, USA. For a detailed analysis of the crystallization process, a realistic view of the chain trajectories in the lamellar semicrystalline morphology is of interest. We have come to the conclusion that the textbook models of melt-crystallized semicrystalline polymers unintentionally but inevitably contain layers with a higher density than in the crystallites.[1] Such density anomalies can be avoided by chain ends at the crystal surface and/or chain tilt in the crystallites. NMR shows that most CH3 end groups of polyethylenes (PEs) are indeed in all-trans chains near the crystal surface. As a consequence, many chain folds cannot be tight, also in agreement with NMR data. Chain tilt in the crystallites, which decreases the density of chains emerging from the crystal, is another indispensable structural adjustment and is indeed observed ubiquitously in PE. It results in differential broadening of (hk0) Bragg peaks ...
The appearance of a corn ear during grain fill or at harvest can tell us much about a corn plants development during the growing season. Ear size and numbers and distribution of kernels on the ear can indicate when the ear experienced stress and the severity of the stress. Ear size and kernel number are determined at five critical stages: when the ear sets the maximum number of kernels, - about the 5-6 leaf collar stage (V5-6), when the ear sets the maximum number of kernels along length of the ear - about the 15 leaf collar stage (V15), when the maximum number of ovules are pollinated to form developing embryos - the blister stage (R2), when the maximum number of kernels is determined - the milk stage (R3), and when the maximum kernel size is established - late dough/early dent stage (R5). Abnormal ear development has multiple causes - environmental stresses, pests, cultural practices. Combined with information on field history, knowledge of ear and kernel anomalies can be an effective ...

Taiwan, in just the past two years, lifted quoto restrictions on wheat imports and lowered tariff barriers. These changes along with the antitrust movement and severe overcapacity will be the catalysts for tremendous structural changes in the way wheat millers compete for domestic market share and contracts for flour. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of liberalization on the Taiwan milling industry. Stiegert, Kyle W.; Peng, Hsing Ming
I am going to get back to the eugenics debate at some point, but it is hard to motivate myself. This is due to a combination of complacency and sanguinity. Many of those who use eugenics as a "scare word" or are "very concerned about it" dont really seem to get past generalities when it comes to the present situation (i.e., there is detailed exploration of past atrocities, and some exploration of rather unrealistic scenarios, such as occurred with the "Chinese eugenic" story, but little concrete engagement with realities such as the high abortion rates for positive tests for Down syndrome). In more crass and intellectually vapid discussions liberals and conservatives tend to use eugenics as a term of selectively useful instrumental rhetoric, a bludgeoning instrument only in the mindless screaming discourse.. Meanwhile, we have advances like the whole genome sequencing of second trimester fetuses. This is still basic science, but in genomics basic science is translated really fast to the ...
A study led by Professor Tom Bourne from Imperial College London has found that hundreds of pregnancies may be lost every year due to inadequate miscarriage guidelines. The research has led to claims that up to 400 healthy* fetuses may be aborted every 12 months. Professor Bourne said "We hope our work means that the guidelines to define miscarriage are made as watertight as we would expect for defining death at any other stage of life" and called for the guidelines to be reviewed so that "inadvertent termination of wanted pregnancies cannot happen". [rcm.org.uk, 14 October] http://goo.gl/SXquf *John Smeaton, SPUCs chief executive, commented: "Tragically, all too often, the adjective "healthy" is used in such contexts to refer to a baby who does not appear to have a disability - with the implication that it would be OK to abort disabled babies. This eugenic attitude is the foundation of the culture of death and must be opposed whenever it emerges ...
When my daughters were born, my first question about them, and I suspect yours too, was, "Are they healthy? Do they have all their fingers and toes" If they werent, if the child was born with Downs Syndrome, for example, I imagine you cried for your child and for yourself. Most learned to love the child or loved the child from conception. Many or most, I suppose, were grateful for this child in your life and all that you shared with this child and learned from this child. Science has given us tools to detect Downs Syndrome and we can choose to abort the fetus. 90% choose abortion. Lawsuits are brought against doctors for not detecting the syndrome. Parents, for example, artificially impregnated, have brought suit for failure to test the egg or sperm donor. From an article at FindLaw written by Sherry F. Colb titled Better to Have Never Been Born? Wrongful Life Litigation. ...

A number of countries have delayed the opening of their capital markets to international" investment because of reservations about the impact of foreign speculators on both expected" returns and market volatility. We propose a cross-sectional time-series model that attempts to" assess the impact of market liberalizations, in the form of the offering of depositary receipts country funds and other financial instruments, in an extranational market and market volatility in emerging equity markets. We also examine the impact of capital market" liberalizations on the correlation of emerging equity market returns and the world market return. " Our empirical approach is designed to control for other economic events which might confound" the impact of foreign speculators on local equity markets. Whatever the empirical specification the cost of capital always decreases after a capital market liberalization but the effect is" economically and statistically weak. The effects on volatility and correlation ...

Within Ancient Hinduism, women have been held in equal honour as men. The Manusmriti for example states: The society that provides respect and dignity to women flourishes with nobility and prosperity. And a society that does not put women on such a high pedestal has to face miseries and failures regardless of how so much noble deeds they perform otherwise. Manusmrithi Chapter 3 Verse 56. Within the Vedas the Hindu holy texts, women were given the highest possible respect and equality. The Vedic period was glorified by this tradition. Many rishis were women, indeed so that several of them authored many of the slokas, a poem, proverb or hymn, in the Vedas. For instance, in the Rigveda there is a list of women rishis.
