In Chinese philosophy and religion, two principles, one negative, dark, and feminine (yin) and one positive, bright, and masculine (yang), from whose interaction all things are produced and all things are dissolved. As a concept the two polar elements referred originally to the shady and sunny sides of a valley or a hill but it developed into the relationship of any contrasting pair: those specified above (female-male, etc.) as well as cold-hot, wet-dry, weak-strong, etc. It is not a distinct system of thought by itself but permeates Chinese life and thought. A balance of yin and yang is essential to health. A deficiency of either principle can manifest as disease. (Encyclopedia Americana)

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)

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 ...

Fetal double aortic arch (DAA) malformation is a rare congenital heart disease with few reported cases in the literature. We aimed to investigate the characteristics of prenatal ultrasound and postnatal computed tomography angiography (CTA) of DAA and to describe the associated anomalies and clinical outcomes to improve prenatal diagnosis and assist in perinatal management. The obstetric ultrasound imaging databases of seven tertiary referral centers were reviewed retrospectively to identify fetuses with a prenatal diagnosis of DAA between January 2013 and December 2018. Ultrasonographic findings, associated anomalies, genetic abnormalities, postnatal CTA images, and long-term postnatal outcomes were evaluated. A total of 36 cases out of 40 prenatally diagnosed DAA fetuses were confirmed by postnatal diagnosis (fetal autopsy, CTA, and surgery). In this cohort of 36 confirmed cases, 24 (67%) were isolated anomalies, while 12 (33%) were associated with intracardiac or extracardiac anomalies, and 2 (6%)

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 ...
The Progress of Eugenic Sterilization Paul Popenoe Human Betterment Foundation, Pasadena More than 150,000,000 people are now living under laws providing for eugenic sterilization in selected cases. The operations used for sterilizing patients, without unsexing them, are of relatively recent origin. It is true that as long ago as 1823, Dr. James Blundell read a paper before the Medico-Chirurgical Society of London in which he suggested that the fallopian tubes, which conduct the egg cell from the ovary to the uterus, might be cut at the time of a Caesarean operation, thus preventing future pregnancy. But so far as is known, Dr. Blundell never performed such an operation, but merely offered it as a possibility. In 1881 Dr. S. S. Lungren of Toledo, Ohio, tied the tubes of a patient with silk at the time of a Caesarean section in order to prevent future pregnancy. Such a ligature is still used sometimes, but since about one case in five ends in failure, it cannot be regarded as good surgical ...
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 ...
Studies of relationships, sexual behaviour, condom use, termination rates and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases suggest that many young people require greater preparation if they are to minimise distress and health threats in their romantic and sexual relationships. Yet most safer sex promotion programmes have been found to be ineffective. Social cognitive theories have been found to reliably distinguish between those who do and do not report subsequent condom use. These theories provide a framework for designing and evaluating safer sex promotion materials and have informed the development of a new school-based sex education programme-the SHARE programme. ...

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, ...

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..

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 ...
Cancer is a disorder caused due to accumulation of mutations in genome. Usually these mutatuions are at more than one Locus. Typically genes which are responsible for controlled growth, maturation and differentiation of the cell are affected. This causes irregular and uncontrolled growth and multiplication of the cells, where most of the cells do not mature properly and also they lack differentiation.. Such cells starts growing abnormally and starts infilterating adjecent tissues and later starts migrating to other sites through lymphatics and blood vessels and infiltrates tissues at other site in body this is phenomenon called Metastasis.. As these cells are abnormal in growth and maturation majority of the cells of same tissue have abnormally different character due to which the tissue starts functioning abnormally and can not retain its normal structure as well.. This genetic anomaly can be a germ line defect or can be acquired due to life style or enviromental insults on the genome.. ...

What Hersey seemed to be saying was that entire generations of Americas ruling class had been unwitting guinea pigs in a vast eugenic experiment run by scientists with a master-race hidden agenda. My classmate Steve Weisman, the Times editor who first called my attention to the letter, pointed out a fascinating corollary: The letter managed in a stroke to confer on some of the most overprivileged people in the world the one status distinction it seemed theyd forever be denied -- victim. ...
Reduced fertility has been associated with AIH12 13but conception is not uncommon in women whose disease is in remission. 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.
We are permitted to restrict abortion based on the characteristics of the fetus, Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher told the Seventh Circuit panel Thursday morning.. Fisher argued that the U.S. Supreme Courts rulings on abortion establish that a woman has the right to chose whether to have a child, but do not extend to which child she shall bear.. House Enrolled Act 1337, signed into law by then-Governor Mike Pence in March 2016, places an outright ban on abortions that are motivated by race, national origin, gender, ancestry or the diagnosis of a disability.. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the American Civil Liberties Union won an initial injunction preventing the law from going into effect, and a final decision finding it unconstitutional in September.. The law is most relevant for women who chose to abort their pregnancy after their fetus tests positive for Down syndrome.. Fisher told the Seventh Circuit that 50 percent of women choose to abort rather than have a ...
The New York Appellate Court ruled on 11 December 1977 in favor of Steven and Hetty Park and against Herbert Chessin for the wrongful life of the Parks child.

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. ...

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. Some of them are: Ghosha, Godha, Gargi, Vishwawra, Apala, Upanishad, Brahmjaya, Aditi, Indrani, Sarma, Romsha, Maitreyi, Kathyayini, Urvashi, Lopamudra, Yami, Shashwati, Sri, Laksha and many others.

The Veteran Feminists of America was created with the goals of remembering and recording the faces and retrospectives of the hundreds of pioneers who launched the 1960s feminist movement, often called second-wave feminism. At first, VFA gatherings consisted of a time and place to meet and reminisce, followed by an awards dinner captured for posterity on video. Those videotapes are now archived at the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute and the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture at Duke University. Soon after their first reunion in 1992, Jacqueline Ceballos joined with Dorothy Senerchia and Mary Jean Tully to create the organization. Muriel Fox joined soon thereafter and has chaired the organization since 1994. The original idea for a name, Veterans of Feminist Wars, was rejected because its acronym could be confused with that of the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization.[1] During its first decade, VFA mainly honored individuals and groups for their work in ...
The American Women's Suffrage movement began in the north as a middle-class white woman's movement with most of their members were educated white women primarily from Boston, New York, Maine, and the Northeast. Attempts were made by the National Women's Suffrage Association (NWSA) to include working-class women, as well as black suffragists. In 1848 the American Equal Rights Association was formed with the belief that everyone regardless of race or sex should be given the right to vote. During this time period a division was forming among the women's movement. The 14th Amendment was being proposed and black males were on the cusp of receiving the right to vote. The NSWA held a convention to discuss how to go forward and the women were divided on the issue.

Social housekeepers sought legislative reform for street cleaning and tenement inspection with the aim of establishing systematic waste and sanitation management.[11] Female politicians often focussed on policy that would deal with cleaning up the city under the guise of housekeeping, like the installation of a piped water transport system by the mayor of Jackson, Wyoming.[12] The sanitation reform enacted by municipal housekeepers bonded domesticity and politics, which positioned the skills of the woman as an effective municipal asset.[11] Reformer Caroline Bartlett Crane served as a consultant in matters of sanitation and municipal cleanliness to other communities. As part of this role she would complete surveys and interviews, examine municipal records and print media texts, before sharing her suggestions at a town meeting and in a report.[1] The New Century Club in Philadelphia formed a Water Supply Committee which campaigned for clean water and reporting on unhygienic schoolhouses.[3] The ...

  • The nation's key eugenic organizations funded by the Rockefeller, Harriman and Carnegie families included the American Eugenics Society (AES), and its sister organization, the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) established in 1947, the Cold Springs Harbor Experimental Station for the Study of Evolution, the Eugenic Record Office, and the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. (
  • They promoted eugenic counseling, selective mating and artificial insemination as 'positive' means of breeding superior human stock and compulsory sterilization and euthanasia as forms of 'negative' eugenics to weed out 'inferior' or 'unfit' human stock. (
  • The presence of well-known proponents of eugenics on the MOD's original Board of Directors and Medical and Research Committees including Jeremiah Milbank, and AES members Professors Anton Julius Carlson and Clair E. Turner, would also contribute to the MOD's decent into the eugenic maelstrom two decades later. (
  • In 1959, the MOD made its first direct connection to the Eugenic Establishment by agreeing to finance a series of mini-courses in medical genetics (the new code-word for negative eugenics) at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine in cooperation with Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. (
  • The strategy to bring eugenics into the nation's medical schools was based on the assumption, that later proved correct, that women were more likely to take eugenics advice from her doctor than from a representative of a eugenic society like the AES. (

  • Intolerance and the resurgence of genetic determinism are current pressures for a eugenic approach. (
  • Unlike the antiquated and little-used information-only hereditary counseling centers operated by the AES and the Eugenic Record Office in the 1920s and 30s, these new 'genetic' (read eugenic) centers offered 'at-risk' couples the opportunity of giving birth to only unaffected children - providing they were willing to utilize prenatal testing via amniocentesis and abort all affected children.

  • We have all heard abortion stories like Abby Johnson's, of women given little-to-no aid after their abortions. (
  • The second reason why the physical risks of abortion are so understated is that abortion clinics give women the option of seeing their primary doctor for the follow-up visit. (

  • In her dissent, Judge Alice Batchelder (an appointee of President George H.W.

  • This holds true even when controlling for income: At every income level, black women have higher abortion rates than whites or Hispanics, except for women below the poverty line, where Hispanic women have slightly higher rates than black women. (
  • Most abortions in the United States are obtained by minority women. (
  • Because black women experience so many more unintended pregnancies than any other group-sharply disproportionate to their numbers in the general population-they are more likely to seek out and obtain abortion services than any other group. (
  • In addition, because black women as a group want the same number of children as white women, but have so many more unintended pregnancies, they are more likely than white women to terminate an unintended pregnancy by abortion to avoid an unwanted birth. (
  • The problem with such an exemption is that it has been shown on the state level that such a rule allows for anyone to still get an abortion, as there are doctors willing to interperet "Health" to mean a variety of things that allow most or all women who want an abortion to recieve one anyway. (
  • This was common at the time: a "eugenic" measure, meant to prevent black women from "breeding. (

  • Far more women now are able to detect Down Syndrome pregnancies, and far more end them with abortion. (
  • Birth control failure on the part of low-IQ women is the main cause of dysgenic fertility, and if all women had easy access to abortion, this would go a long way towards neutralizing the dysgenic effect of birth control failure. (
  • Hillary Clinton famously defended partial-birth abortion on the grounds that handicapped babies deserve less protection than healthy ones. (
  • Batchelder further pointed out that the Supreme Court's ruling in Gonzales v. Carhart (2007) allowed the federal ban on partial-birth abortion to apply before viability. (
  • By now, most everyone has probably seen the district court decision invalidating the partial-birth abortion ban . (
  • To me, the issue of partial-birth abortion has always been a good illustration of a characteristic of the pro-life movement, which depending on one's political perspective may be viewed as muleheadedness, hypocrisy, or steadfastness. (
  • Despite overwhelming public support for a ban on partial-birth abortion, pro-life politicians have been unable or unwilling to enact viable legislation against it. (
  • And viola, a constitutional partial-birth abortion ban. (
  • Despite repeated claims about caring for life, pro-life advocates are unwilling to make realistic moves to end partial birth abortion. (
  • Instead, they keep trying to leverage the popular opinion against partial-birth abortion, in order to try to milk greater gains from it. (
  • The third possibility is that many pro-life politicians are not cynically trying to leverage an issue, but they are simply too stubborn to see that they have an easy victory within their grasp, and that they only delay passage of a viable partial-birth abortion ban when they try to overreach. (
  • These seem to be the most convincing potential explanations for the fact that, despite strong public opinion against partial-birth abortion, a clear constitutional path to a ban, and a political majority in favor of such a ban - all of which have existed for years - Congress has somehow failed to enact a viable ban, yet again. (

  • Axelrod said Schoen, a specialist in genetics and women's abortion rights, presented on Darwin Day because abortion, birth control and woman's rights are pressing issues today. (
  • For example, a study of 53,000 women's choices found that prenatally screened conditions that were classified as having no impact on the quality of the adult's life lead to about 1% termination (presumably from distrust of the actual risks involved), but those conditions judged to have a serious impact led to a 50% abortion rate. (
  • Birth control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time. (
  • The laws in some states permit abortion until birth. (
  • A side note, it was in a letter to Kahrl's father that Sanger exposed her racist intentions with the infamous line, "We don't want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population …") Clarence later began an international organization called Pathfinder Fund to push abortions and birth control as population control measures in developing countries. (
  • To be more precise, the powerful foundation was about to launch an unprecedented campaign of eugenic cleansing designed to eliminate pre-born children suspected of having birth defects. (
  • Cervical damage and scarring of the endometrium from abortion may also increase the risk of abnormal development of the placenta in subsequent pregnancies, thus increasing the risk of birth defects. (

  • The eugenic theme figured prominently in the Birth Control Review, which Sanger founded in 1917. (
  • Health care workers who object to eugenic abortions for reasons of conscience experience considerable pressure in jurisdictions where wrongful birth suits are permitted. (
  • Moreover, the administration has been promoting abortion and hard-selling extreme birth control methods, often to the financial benefit of close allies like Planned Parenthood. (
  • And when that birth control inevitably fails, Planned Parenthood is on hand to exterminate the "unwanted" among us via abortion. (
  • So if this law was put into effect with the wording you suggest, it would have little to no impact on the number of partial-birth abortions performed. (
  • She said, "Birth control… is really the greatest and most truly eugenic program. (
  • This law therefore protects eugenic abortion -the selective termination of babies deemed to have certain anomalies prior to birth and thus deemed imperfect. (
  • So what is the history of abortion and the pill in Japan, and what are the current issues regarding birth control? (
  • I know that abortion is technically illegal here, but that it is also a widely used form of birth control for unwanted pregnancies. (
