Serum immunoglobulins in aborted and non-aborted bovine foetuses. (1/403)

The concentration of immunoglobulin classes G, M and A (IgG, IgM and IgA) in the sera of 233 aborted and 201 non-aborted foetuses was measured. IgM was first detected in a foetus at day 90 of gestation while IgG and IgA were first detected on day 111 of gestation. Immunoglobulins were detected in 81.5% of aborted foetuses and 32.8% of non-aborted foetuses. Total immunoglobulin concentrations of 20 mg/100 ml or greater were found in 35.2% of aborted foetuses but only in 4.5% of non-aborted foetuses. It is suggested that factors resulting in antigenic stimulation of the foetus may play an important part in bovine abortion.  (+info)

Role of polymorphonuclear neutrophils in a murine model of Chlamydia psittaci-induced abortion. (2/403)

To assess the role of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) in Chlamydia psittaci infection in a pregnant mouse model, pregnant and nonpregnant Swiss OF1 mice were depleted of PMNs by treatment with the RB6-8C5 monoclonal antibody before intraperitoneal infection with C. psittaci serotype 1. Nondepleted mice served as infection controls. Depleted mice aborted earlier and had a much higher mortality rate than nondepleted mice. Bacteriological analysis showed that the number of chlamydiae isolated from the spleens of depleted mice at 5 and 7 days postinfection was 100 times greater than that isolated from nondepleted mice. Histopathological analysis of the placentas of depleted mice showed widespread necrosis of the uteroplacental units, with weak immunoreaction to chlamydial antigen, while the placentas of nondepleted mice showed substantial neutrophil infiltration but no large areas of necrosis, with moderate to strong immunoreaction to chlamydial antigen. The livers of depleted mice showed numerous chlamydial inclusions in the hepatocytes, delayed microgranuloma formation, and in the pregnant animals extensive coagulative periportal necrosis. The livers of nondepleted mice displayed multiple small foci of PMNs and mononuclear cells with microgranuloma formation. Among this group of mice, the pregnant animals always had more hepatic damage than nonpregnant animals. Our results suggest that PMNs play an essential role in the response to C. psittaci primary infection, preventing the uncontrolled multiplication of chlamydiae in the liver and spleen.  (+info)

Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene of micro-organism WSU 86-1044 from an aborted bovine foetus reveals that it is a member of the order Chlamydiales: proposal of Waddliaceae fam. nov., Waddlia chondrophila gen. nov., sp. nov. (3/403)

The structural gene encoding the 16S rRNA of the new obligate intracellular organism presently designated WSU 86-1044T was sequenced and analysed to establish its phylogenetic relationships. The 16S rDNA sequence was most closely related to those of chlamydial species, having 84.7-85.3% sequence similarity, while it had 72.4-73.2% similarity with rickettsia-like organisms. When the sequences of the four species of chlamydiae (Chlamydophila psittaci, Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydophila pneumoniae and Chlamydophila pecorum) were compared, they had > 93% sequence similarity indicating that WSU 86-1044T was not close enough to be in the same family as current Chlamydiaceae members. However, based on the 84.7-85.3% 16S rDNA sequence similarity of WSU 86-1044T and other previously described characteristics, WSU 86-1044T belongs to a novel family within the order Chlamydiales; hence, the proposal of Waddliaceae fam. nov., Waddlia chondrophila gen. nov., sp. nov.  (+info)

Experimental infection of pregnant cows with Bacillus licheniformis bacteria. (4/403)

To study the abortifacient potential and fetoplacental tropism of Bacillus licheniformis bacteria, eight cows in the sixth to eighth month of gestation were inoculated intravenously either once (n = 4) or on four successive days (n = 4) with B. licheniformis at doses ranging from 10(9) to 10(12) colony-forming units. Cows were euthanatized and necropsied prior to abortion (n = 2), at the time of abortion (n = 2), or at calving (n = 4). Live-born calves (n = 5) were euthanatized immediately after delivery and necropsied. B. licheniformis was reisolated from placentomes/endometrium in six of eight (75%) cows and from one fetus aborted 43 days after inoculation. Lesions associated with B. licheniformis were restricted to the pregnant uterus, with the exception of one cow, which developed pneumonia. Necrosis in the fetal compartment of the placenta were present in three of four (75%) cows of both inoculation groups. Lesions were mainly restricted to fetal membranes and especially to the fetal side of the placentomes. Necrosis and diffuse neutrophil infiltrations of both villi and intervillous areas occurred in the fetal part of the placenta, and the placentomal interface was distended by bacteria, neutrophils, erythrocytes, and debris. Within trophoblasts, bacteria were located both free in the cytoplasm and in cytoplasmatic vesicles. Inflammation was present in three of eight (38%) calves. Placental and fetal lesions were similar to those found in cases of spontaneous abortions associated with B. licheniformis. The abortifacient potential of B. licheniformis and the tropism for the bovine placenta is demonstrated here for the first time.  (+info)

Participation of embryonic genotype in the pregnancy block phenomenon in mice. (5/403)

Pregnancy block by male pheromones in mice differs in incidence depending on the combination of strains. Female mice of BALB/cA strain mated with BALB/cA males show a 100% pregnancy block when exposed to males of inbred strain DDK shortly after copulation (Chung et al., Biol Reprod 1997; 57:312-319). In the present study, BALB/cA females mated with the males of other strains--CBA/J, C3H/HeN, C57BL/6Cr, and IXBL--showed higher pregnancy rates (66.6-87. 5%) even when they were exposed to DDK males. In the pharmacological induction of pregnancy block with dopamine agonist (bromocriptine, 4 mg/kg BW), BALB/cA females mated with BALB/cA males showed a 100% pregnancy block. In contrast, BALB/cA females mated with CBA/J, C3H/HeN, and C57BL/6Cr males showed higher pregnancy rates (40-70%). These results suggest that the better pregnancy rate of BALB/cA females mated with alien males may be due to the stronger viability of F(1) embryos. This interpretation was confirmed by an embryo transfer experiment in which a higher implantation rate was observed when BALB/cA embryos grown in BALB/cA females exposed to BALB/cA males were transferred into recipient BALB/cA females exposed to DDK males. These results suggest that the embryonic genotype or viability of the embryo is one factor contributing to the occurrence of pregnancy block by male pheromones in mice.  (+info)

Abortifacient effects of a unique class of vasoactive lipids from Pinus ponderosa needles. (6/403)

Pinus ponderosa needle (PN) ingestion by late pregnant cows results in decreased uterine blood flow, premature parturition, and retained placentae. Further, plasma from PN-fed cows increases caruncular arterial tone (i.e., induces prolonged contraction) in an isolated perfused bovine placentome. A novel class of vasoactive lipids was isolated and identified using a bovine placentome assay-guided fractionation of CH2Cl2 extracts of PN. Placentome perfusion tests indicated that 1-12-dodecanedioyl-dimyristate (14-12-14) was the most potent of the PN lipids for increasing caruncular arterial tone. Late pregnant guinea pigs (GP) were used to evaluate the abortifacient activity of these vasoactive lipids. In Study 1, on d 50 of gestation, part of the control diet was replaced with chopped PN (Diet A) or chopped PN subjected to sequential extraction with diethyl ether (Et2O; Diet B); Et2O and CH2Cl2 (Diet C); and Et2O, CH2Cl2, and methanol (Diet D). The GP on Diets A and B exhibited shorter (P<.01) gestation lengths and reduced (P<.01) pig birth weights than GP on the control diet or Diets C and D. Further, only GP on Diets A and B exhibited retained placentae. In Study 2, on d 50 of gestation, part of the control diet was replaced with chopped PN that had been subjected to exhaustive CH2Cl2 extraction and then infiltrated with either CH2Cl2 alone (Diet E), CH2Cl2 containing 14-12-14 (Diet F), or CH2Cl2 containing isocupressic acid (Diet G); then solvents were evaporated. The GP consuming Diet F had shorter (P<.05) gestation lengths and reduced (P<.05) pig birth weights than did GP consuming Diets E or G. The GP consuming Diet F also exhibited a high incidence of retained placentae. These data provide evidence that a unique class of vasoactive lipids in PN exhibit abortifacient activity in guinea pigs.  (+info)

Identification and PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of a variant of the Ibaraki virus from naturally infected cattle and aborted fetuses in Japan. (7/403)

One hundred fourteen field isolates of the Ibaraki virus (IBAV), a member of the epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus serotype 2 (EHDV-2), were isolated from blood samples of affected and apparently healthy cattle and Culicoides biting midges and from blood samples of dams and internal organs of aborted fetuses during an outbreak of Ibaraki disease in the southern part of Japan in 1997. In this outbreak, 242 cattle showed typical symptoms of the disease, and several hundred dams had miscarriages or stillbirths. The viruses that induced typical Ibaraki disease and reproductive problems among cattle were identical and were antigenically closely related to but distinct from previous isolates of IBAV and EHDV-2. The virus was considered to be a putative agent of this outbreak. Reverse transcription-PCR based on segment 3 of the RNA genome of EHDV-2 and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the PCR products were conducted to compare the genomes of the viruses. The results suggested that the virus isolated in 1997 was a variant of IBAV and might be exotic.  (+info)

Detection by PCR of Neospora caninum in fetal tissues from spontaneous bovine abortions. (8/403)

The routine diagnosis of Neospora caninum abortion is based upon histopathologic changes in fetal tissues and identification of tissue parasites by immunohistochemistry. Confirmation of N. caninum infection by immunohistochemistry has low sensitivity. In the present study, we examined the utility of PCR in detecting N. caninum infection in fetal tissues from spontaneous bovine abortion. DNA was obtained from fresh and formalin-fixed tissues from 61 bovine fetuses submitted for abortion diagnosis. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry determined the true status of N. caninum infection in each fetus. In formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues, PCR detected N. caninum DNA in 13 of 13 true-positive fetuses (100%) and in 1 of 16 true-negative fetuses (6%). In fresh or frozen tissues, PCR detected N. caninum DNA in 10 of 13 true-positive fetuses (77%) and 0 of 11 true-negative fetuses (0%). PCR also detected N. caninum DNA in 6 of 8 fetuses that had typical lesions of N. caninum but were immunohistochemistry negative, indicating a higher sensitivity of PCR in comparison to that of immunohistochemistry. N. caninum DNA was amplified most consistently from brain tissue. PCR detection of N. caninum DNA in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues was superior to that in fresh tissues, presumably because of the increased accuracy of sample selection inherent in histologic specimens.  (+info)

Changes in reasons for seeking late-term abortions: For many of the countries in question, a large fraction of late-term abortions are in cases of fetal health issues. This is considered the most plausible explanation for the multi-country trends, that increasing numbers of abortions are being encouraged in cases of known or possible fetal health issues. Further, all ten countries with increasing late-term abortion fraction are countries with universal healthcare, in which case such abortions are incentivized to minimize costs to the health care system without regard to individual patients needs (including the mothers as well as the unborn children). The increasing numbers of late-term abortions are accompanied in several countries (including Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) by increasing cases where the baby is delivered alive after the abortion and then either left to die or actively killed. This is why late-term abortions are increasingly ...
Why do women get late-term abortions?. The media deceptively leads the public to believe that late-term abortions only happen in cases of fetal anomalies or because of a health reason (as opposed to an early delivery), but even the abortion industry admits that late-term abortions are often done on perfectly healthy babies and moms.. Dr. Eleanor Drey, the medical director of the Womens Options Center of San Francisco General Hospital which commits abortions into the second trimester, admitted in an abortion training module published by Innovating Education, […] there was a study that showed womens reasons for presenting at 16 weeks or beyond after their last menstrual period. And what they saw was that women often didnt realize that they were pregnant. She goes on to list additional reasons, and as you can see, fetal anomaly is the lowest on the list.. ...
Appalling. That is what Planned Parenthood called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, an abortion limit that would protect second- and third-trimester children from being dismembered alive. Why is this appalling to Planned Parenthood? According to Planned Parenthood: because rape and incest survivors are afforded time to receive follow-up medical care and law enforcement intervention before undergoing the abortion. In reality? Planned Parenthood is appalled because the measure will cut to the core of their all-important abortion revenue.. By losing their ability to commit abortions past the halfway point in pregnancy, Planned Parenthood will lose their most valuable clientele: late-term abortion patients. Late-term abortions are the most expensive kind. You see, as a baby develops, his will to live and ability to resist death and expulsion from his mothers womb increase. (Read: He is harder to terminate.) His bones ossify, making crushing them and pulling them apart difficult. ...
LINCOLN, NEB. - Mike Flood, the 35-year-old speaker of Nebraskas legislature, had a problem: He wanted to stop the states well-known abortion provider from offering late-term abortions.. A long line of Supreme Court precedents seemed to stand in his way. But Flood believes that a 2007 decision offers hope for him and other state legislators looking for ways to restrict abortion.. Using that decision as a road map, this spring Flood wrote and won passage of legislation that bans abortions after 20 weeks. Introducing into law the concept of fetal pain, it marked the first time that a state has outlawed the procedure so early in a pregnancy without an exception for the health of the woman.. The law shut down LeRoy Carhart, the provider who had planned to expand his practice outside Omaha and provide late-term abortions to women across the Midwest.. The importance of Floods bill is likely to be felt far beyond Nebraska. Abortion opponents call it model legislation for other states and say it ...

Vermont Legislative Research Shop. Late-term Abortions. Medical Perspective On Late-Term Abortions. Late-term abortion occurs during the third trimester of pregnancy around the 27th week of gestation. Two different techniques are used for this abortion procedure. Intact Dilation and Extraction (partial birth) removes the fetus from the uterus through the vaginal canal and creates a suction to remove the brain and spinal fluid from the skull. The American Medical Association recommends that intact dilatation and extraction procedure not be used unless alternative procedures pose a greater risk to the woman and that abortions not be performed in the third trimester except in cases of serious fetal anomalies incompatible with life (Epner 1998). However, this abortion procedure may minimize the trauma to the woman s uterus, cervix, and other organs (Epner 1998). Dilation and Extraction (D&X) is another late-term method. The Doctor dismembers the fetal part that has been brought out of the vagina ...

With the MTP Amendment Bill 2020 awaiting a nod from the Rajya Sabha, report shows that 23 per cent cases were filed within 20-week gestation period and should not have gone to courts at all; 243 abortion cases filed over 1.3 years (from May 2019 to August 2020), versus175 cases filed in three years. A new report from Pratigya Campaign, a network of 110+ individuals and organisations working towards protecting and advancing womens rights and their access to safe abortion care in India, finds that High Courts in India are currently witnessing a substantial increase in abortion cases.. With the MTP Amendment Bill 2020 awaiting a nod from the Rajya Sabha, the report emphasises how crucial it is for the law to adapt in accordance to the changing times by incorporating few changes recommended by civil society organisations, which if accepted would make the Act progressive and rights based.

Chlamydial abortion of ewes and goats. I. Current aspects on etiology, pathogenesis, immune mechanisms and epizootiology of disease
Dr. Dietrich Volkmann. It is now common knowledge amongst the equestrian fraternity that hundreds of mares in central Kentucky aborted their late gestation pregnancies during late April and early May of this year. At the same time, an enormous number of mares that had conceived during February and the first half of March also lost their pregnancies. The syndrome was named Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome or MRLS. The economic loss to the Thoroughbred breeding industry will run into many, many millions of dollars.. Apart from the urgent need to diagnose the cause of the MRLS (see Appendix A for the latest press release by the Gluck Center, coordinators of the investigation into the cause of the MRLS), there are some related questions and problems that require intensive and urgent investigation. On behalf of Cornells College of Veterinary Medicine, first Dr D. Schlafer and later the PI (May 24-26, 2001), visited Kentucky in order to establish ways in which our College could make a contribution to ...

Denver, Colo., Oct 26, 2020 / 05:06 pm (CNA).- Coloradans are preparing for a ballot referendum that would ban abortion after 22 weeks of pregnancy in the state. While abortion advocates argue that such abortions are extremely rare, statistics recorded by a longtime Colorado abortionist shed light on the late term abortions performed at one Boulder clinic.. The data reveals hundreds of late-term abortions performed over a 20-year period on babies with fetal abnormalities such as Down syndrome.. Warren Hern, an abortionist who has been active in Boulder, Colorado since 1975, released a paper in 2014 which included many self-reported statistics about the abortions his clinic performed between 1992 and 2012.. The statistics show that Herns clinic performed hundreds of abortions between 1992-2012 on women who were at or past 24 weeks pregnant, including several performed on women between 38 and 39 weeks gestation.. Nearly 240 of those late-term abortions were performed on babies with Down ...

To me, the argument for a gradualist approach to the ethical rightness or wrongness of abortion that depends on the gestation of the fetus is weak, lacks intellectual consistency, and seems self-serving. To the ethical straddlers concerned about gestation we must ask: is there anything qualitatively different about a fetus at, say, 28 weeks that gives it a morally different status to a fetus at 18 weeks or even eight weeks? It certainly looks different because its physical development has advanced. At 28 weeks we can see it is human - at eight weeks a human embryo looks much like that of a hamster. But are we really so shallow, so fickle, as to let our view on moral worth be determined by appearance? Even if at five weeks we can only see an embryonic pole, we know that it is human. The heart that can be seen beating on an ultrasound scan at six weeks is as much a human heart as the one that beats five months later. Indeed, from the time of conception, as soon as embryonic cells begin to ...
The Montana state Senate passed a bill requiring abortionists to try to save babies born at 24 weeks of gestation and older. Even if the Republican-controlled House passes Senate Bill 282, the bill still faces an uncertain future.

The mother of a young woman who died during a late-term abortion procedure last year is now pursuing a wrongful death investigation into exactly what happened to her beautiful young daughter.. The New Mexico Alliance for Life is reporting on the investigation into the death of 23-year-old Keisha Atkins of Albuquerque who died from complications of a late-term abortion that took place at Southwestern Womens Options (SWO) in February of 2017.. Keishas mother, Tina, hired attorney Michael Seibel who is now subpoenaing all records pertaining to the actual procedure at SWO as well as at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Hospital where she died and the autopsy report that was conducted on her body.. All I want is justice for my baby and my grandbaby and every other woman who has put her life and health at risk to endure this brutal procedure, Tina Atkins said. My grandbaby would have been a year and 3 months now, but instead I have to deal with the constant pain of two deaths, my daughter and ...
There can really be no disputing these findings when we consider the horrific reality of the percentages of babies with a disability who are aborted before birth and these are almost always late-term abortions. Up to 90% of unborn babies with Down Syndrome are aborted and the numbers are depressingly similar for babies with conditions such as anencephaly.. These shocking rates may be, as Harkin says, because more positive alternatives such as perinatal hospice are not shared with families, and the most up-to-date research on these conditions is not relayed to them, such as the study published in Pediatrics which showed that 97% of families who brought their children with Trisomy 13 or 18 to term described their children as a happy children. Parents also reported these children enriched their families irrespective of the length of their lives.. Every Life Counts argues that language matters, and that late-term abortion is often justified as a treatment for these babies, whose short lives should ...
Attempting to fact-check the Republican nominee Donald Trump on CBS This Morning, former Face the Nation moderator Bob Schieffer falsely asserted:
This idea of the C. abortus becoming latent in the host ewe is a concern as it means that when buying in new animals, great care needs to be taken when sourcing replacement stock. Once in a flock the disease is difficult to eradicate. While initially only one or two animals may lose their lambs during initial season, the ease of transmission and difficult of diagnosis may eventually lead to an outbreak of up to 30% losses in one season. These losses can be reduced by the use of antibiotics in the midst of lambing time, however the damage already done to the tissues involved in the infection are irreversible and vaccination still remains the best option ...

Henry was nearly 18 when he married 23-year-old Catherine of Aragon. Their first daughter, a girl, was stillborn. Their second child, a boy, lived only 52 days.. Four other confirmed pregnancies followed during the marriage but three of the offspring were either stillborn or died shortly after birth. Their only surviving child was Mary, who would eventually be crowned the fourth Monarch in the Tudor dynasty.. The precise number of miscarriages endured by Henrys reproductive partners is difficult to determine, especially when various mistresses are factored in, but the kings partners had a total of at least 11 and possibly 13 or more pregnancies. Only four of the eleven known pregnancies survived infancy.. Whitley and Kramer call the high rate of spontaneous late-term abortion, stillbirth, or rapid neonatal death suffered by Henrys first two queens an atypical reproductive pattern because, even in an age of high child mortality, most women carried their pregnancies to term, and their infants ...

Pre-term labor is presumed to result from spreading of lower genital infection to upper part, subsequently to decidual and choioamniotic tissues. Host response to this injury include the expression of protein which is responsible to the inflammatory reactions. The expression of the inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-α increase in case of infection.These cytokines may play an essential role in the pathophysiology of spontaneous pretem labor with intact membrane.An observational analytic cohort study was caried out on cases of spontaneous pre-tefln labor with intact membrane. The objectives of this study are to examine the relationship between l) the histologic amnionitis and placentitis and the incidence of preterm delivery,2) the expression of amniotic fluids IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-α and the incidence of preterm delivery, 3) the level of amniotic fluids IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-α and the grade of histologic amnionitis and placentitis in case of pre-term labor ...
Consider the current situation in Australia. In an attempt to reverse the countrys plummeting birthrate, the government of Australia pays women $5,000 for each successful birth, as reported by (October 23, 2008). It also awards that same amount, on compassionate grounds, in the case of a stillbirth. However, since late-term abortions are registered as stillbirths, a woman choosing an abortion at this time in her pregnancy is also eligible for the $5,000. As a result, according to the Australia Associated Press, some women routinely conceive for the purpose of aborting late-term in order to collect the bonus money. One woman is reported to have had three such abortions ...
Having family in Japan I feel I need to speak a bit on Japan, abortion, and Mizu Kuyo-. While abortion is readily available in Japan and post conception birth control is not uncommon, even in Japan unrestricted elective abortion is only legal in the first trimester. My Japanese wife was in disbelief when she learned the standard pro-choice position, commenting that there was no question that late-term abortion was murder. With regard to abortion and Mizu Kuyo-, most Japanese I have spoken to clearly acknowledge that abortion is killing the baby (none of that lump of cells rationalization BS). But most Japanese also believe in some form of reincarnation. So, while that babys soul will have another chance to live, the Mizu Kuyo- is often meant to comfort the spirit and apologize to it for not giving it the chance to live at that time. ...

Lastly, Ive also heard a lot of people argue that compromise is giving in, accepting something less than victory on critical issues and not continuing to work towards that total victory of whatever critical issue is perceived to be right/just/correct/moral/etc. This is incorrect as well, because accepting a compromise does not mean that you have to stop working towards achieving your goals on that issue, it just means that you are settling for a partial victory in the short term, where you know that a total victory is impossible. You can still work towards the total victory of your position in the long term while accepting compromise in the short term, after all. For example, agreeing to a ban only on late-term abortion with considerations for the health of the mother now does not mean I would have to give up working towards a total ban on abortion in the future, it just means that Im smart enough to recognize that I am NOT going to get a total ban on abortion now, now matter how much I ...

Yes, unfortunately, the gassing of Jews was once viewed as OK by a powerful group of twisted Darwinian thinkers in Germany. Though it was OK to them, its not OK to our largely post-Christian humanist culture. On the other hand--tragically--a dominant segment of our culture thinks late-term abortions are OK. Once upon a time, the Aztecs religious convictions made it OK to slaughter thousands of people in their religious ceremonies. Some Catholics came along in the 16th century and thought that was a barbaric, and so slaughtered the Aztecs. Our moral history is a messy one, in which murder has *not* been viewed as ALWAYS wrong. You and I and present company may believe so, and I truly hope that value wins out in this world someday. But thats up to culture, and, in a small way, up to each of us who is a part of our culture ...

Neosporosis, Hanzlicek said, is caused by Neospora caninum, a coccidian parasite carried by dogs-wild and domestic. It was first discovered in the United States in 1988, but tests on stored older tissues have confirmed the organisms presence since at least the 1950s.. We talk a lot about it on the dairy side, but this organism is also present in beef cow-calf operations, Hanzlicek said.. Dogs, coyotes, gray wolves and dingoes are the definitive hosts of neospora, and they become infected by eating bovine contaminated tissues such as muscle, placenta and aborted fetuses, Hanzlicek explained.. (Neospora) goes into the intestine of these canines, undergoes some changes and then is shed in the feces, he said. It goes through another life cycle on the ground. The cow ingests the contaminated feces, or ingests water or feed that contains the contaminated feces. It then moves to multiple tissues in the bovine: for example, muscles, brain and neurologic tissues, and the liver.. Hanzlicek said ...

After that clinic closed in 2009, Sella went to work for Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Womens Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, an affiliate of the troubled National Abortion Federation, conducting the same grisly late-term abortion procedure she learned in Wichita.. A former employee at Tillers facility claimed that she once witnessed Sella intentionally stab to death an infant born alive during an abortion.. Sella cancelled her Kansas medical license the same week the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts notified Operation Rescue that a disciplinary petition had been filed against one of Sellas Kansas co-workers, Ann Kristin Neuhaus, who had provided improper ...
By Mark Hennessy and Jamie Smyth in Brussels. The European Court of Human Rights has found Poland guilty of a breach of human rights in an abortion case that could have implications for Ireland.. Three Irish women have taken a case to the court that has similarities with the Polish case. The court may begin hearing the Irish case, lodged in 2005, later this year.. The Polish case concerned Alicja Tysiac, a woman who was told by three doctors that her eyesight could suffer if she proceeded with a pregnancy. However, all three doctors declined to certify Ms Tysiac for an abortion.. They refused, according to the judgment, because they said there was not a certainty that her retina would detach during childbirth, even though they agreed that pregnancy and delivery constituted a risk to her eyesight. In the event, Ms Tysiacs eyesight suffered a steep decline. She is no longer able to see farther than 1.5 metres and is classified as significantly disabled.. Abortion is legal in Poland in ...

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - El Salvadors Supreme Court heard opening arguments Wednesday in a landmark abortion case in which a woman suffering from kidney failure and lupus has not been allowed to terminate a pregnancy in which the fetus is given no chance of surviving. How to test birds for viral infection: One way to control the disease is by testing birds for the presence of the virus prior to movement, sale or to comply with a surveillance requirement such as those specified in the National Poultry Improvement Program (NPIP).. The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is fully accredited and equipped with the expertise to test for avian influenza, as well as many other pathogens. The test that is performed is a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This assay can amplify small amounts of viral nucleic acid so it is more readily detected by an instrument. Moreover, the assay is very rapid and can be completed in the same day the sample is received..

As per the studies, women before the age of 45 in the US have an abortion. Even though the number of rates of abortion has been decreased in the past few years, abortion has proved to be a common experience for women. Around 20% of women are likely to have an abortion by the age of 30.. In the US getting an abortion is nothing new. Initially, the abortion cases increased and this was due to a lack of understanding about the protected sexual intercourse. Since today women are made aware of the measures and precautions which can help to avoid pregnancy the number of unwanted pregnancies and abortion has been reduced.. As per the studies, the number of women having an abortion has been reduced to five years and for this, the use of contraception has proved to be a major constricting factor. Despite such reduced rates, women are aware of such concepts.. Women to have an abortion only have to purchase online Abortion Pills and get pregnancy termination. Women do stick to this method as this is an ...
For women who were turned away or had near-limit abortions, money and finances were the most likely reasons for delay. The authors report that reasons for delay among women who were turned away for being over the gestational age limit included travel and procedure costs (58.3 percent of turnaways reported this issue), not recognizing the pregnancy (almost half of turnaways), insurance problems, not knowing where to find abortion care (reported by a third of turnaways), and not knowing how to get to a provider. Interestingly, the near-limit women in this study reported less difficulty deciding to have abortions than the women who had the procedure during the first trimester. This finding runs counter the anti-abortion notion that women who have late-term abortions have simply been irresponsible in waiting so long to make a decision. The authors also performed some calculations to try to estimate how many women are turned away each year due to gestational age limits. They concluded that ...
Ending partial-birth abortion... does not save a single human life. - Dr. James Dobson Scores of pro-life leaders and groups (see their names below) have condemned Gonzales v. Carhart, the U.S. Supreme Courts brutally-wicked ruling upholding the morally bankrupt partial-birth abortion ban. Tragically, other pro-life leaders and groups (see them also) still support this fraudulent ban and ruling which is a virtual manual on how to perform late-term abortions. Brace yourself for American RTLs summary of the PBA fiasco:
Last year the Victorian parliament passed the Abortion Law Reform Act, the freest abortion laws in the world. The new laws have opened the floodgates to late-term abortions, right up to and including nine months.. While the deep moral conflicts between pro-lifers and pro-choicers are long-running, the current law has brought to the fore a whole new issue of unprecedented discrimination.. An unheralded section in the Act and a world first, section 8(1), takes away the right of medical practitioners with a conscientious objection to abortion to decline any involvement in the act of abortion. These practitioners are now forced to supply the names of other health professionals willing to perform, direct, authorise or supervise an abortion.. This new law has flagrantly stripped away the rights of doctors to decline any involvement in an abortion. The legal requirement of a pro-life doctor to refer a patient to a pro-abortion doctor cannot be dismissed as inconsequential. Nor can it be argued that the ...
Germantown, MD, Nov. 27, 2013 (OperationRescue) For the third time this year, one of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart s abortion patients were rushed to Shady Grove Hospital (SGH) in Maryland for emergency treatment after a late-term abortion. On Tuesday at 11:45 a.m., an ambulance arrived at Germantown Reproductive Health Services and loaded a women for transport to the SGH emergency room. Sources inform Operation Rescue that the women underwent emergency surgery at the hospital. Video taken by a local pro-life activist showed a woman covered head-to-toe in a sheet and that neither Carhart nor any of his staff accompanied the ...
Associate Justice Sandra Day OConnor, joined by Associate Justices White and Rehnquist found  the second-physician requirement of 188.030.3 is constitutional because the State has a compelling interest, extant throughout pregnancy, in protecting and preserving fetal life; The pathology-report requirement of 188.047 is constitutional because it imposes no undue burden on the limited right to undergo an abortion, and its validity is not contingent on the trimester of pregnancy in which it is imposed; and Assuming, arguendo, that the State cannot impose a parental veto on a minors decision to undergo an abortion, the parental consent provision of 188.028.2 is constitutional because it imposes no undue burden on any right that a minor may have to undergo an abortion ...
This popular blog post about a womans change in position also shares some pretty graphic details of late-term abortions. Mortifying. Just mortifying. Until recently I had never thought through what was actually happening to these babies. I used to think it was terrible that many Chinese people who could only have one child would either chose abortion or abandonment for their female children. How terrible, I thought. What a terrible society, I accused them to be. Little did I know my society was equally as terrible. Most recent available data states that in 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the U.S (source) and worldwide, there are estimated to be more than 40 million abortions per year (source). And even worse one blogger who reached out to many women who chose abortion writes, their stories all shared one thing in common, none of them made their decisions lightly and none of them regretted their decisions. Not to say there arent mothers who regret abortion, I know ...
It seems to be taken as axiomatic from pro-life people that we can find no common ground with pro-choice people, and that pro-life people who take exception for rape are not pro-life, they are really pro-abortion with exceptions (thats an awful lot of exceptions for someone who is pro-abortion). Finding common ground does not mean compromising with pro-choice people. Steve Wagner has written an excellent book about this very topic. We can use common ground as a springboard to keep the conversation going. For example, if someone tells me that they oppose late-term abortion, then I can obviously agree with that. Then I can ask someone in what morally relevant way does an early embryo differ from a late-term fetus that would justify killing one but not the other? And calling a pro-life person who believes in the rape exception pro-abortion is just a strawman of their actual views. Just what, exactly, is common ground if we cant find common ground with people who agree with us about ...
LEXINGTON, KY - February 29, 2012 - University of Kentucky experts report that eastern tent caterpillar eggs have begun hatching well ahead of last year and expect the egg hatch to be completed in Central Kentucky by the first full week of March.
By the way, please dont mistake me as suggesting that people can kill their babies as they please. Im really more interested in the abstract question of moral worth. In practice, unwilling parents can always give a born child up for adoption, which would presumably do far more good than killing it, regardless of whether the baby has instrinsic moral worth (or how much). Also, for the record, Im not entirely comfortable with late-term abortions. Here Im just exploring some possibilities - I dont necessarily endorse all the assumptions being made along the way. Lastly, I am not in any way denigrating the worth of the parental bond - I am certainly not suggesting that parents shouldnt value their babies. Of course they should. Im sure that special bond is immensely rewarding, and perhaps even crucial to human flourishing and the well-lived life (for some people anyway). But that is all quite independent of whether those little critters we adore so much actually have any instrinsic moral ...
One of the few doctors who still performs late-term abortions in the United States, George Tiller has been picketed, bombed and shot in the arms.
The journalist who wrote the article, Deborah Davies, gives the impression that she is very much in favour of a womans right to choose, but she is clearly unhappy with the number of abortions which are performed after 12-14 weeks gestation... and obviously shocked by what medical staff have told her about the procedures used for such late-term abortions. I cant agree with her description of abortions in the first 12 weeks needing only a simple suction procedure - its all pretty gross when you consider that a human life is at stake - but Im interested to read that more and more people are beginning to question where a foetus is considered to be a baby in the making ...

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

Judith Jarvis Thompson has concluded in a book titled A Defense of Abortion that abortion due to rape is not wrong because it was an incident that was not planned and the sense of a child growing in the womb due to rape was not invited so therefore the abortion would be permissible. On several occasions Judith Jarvis Thompsons position was that we could accede permission to person A, having right over person Bs body and life even though person B did not permit it. She implied that it would be a kind and good thing to do. Her stance allows that if we were to do so it would be permissible to perform abortions due to rape cases. What Judith Jarvis Thompson has taken for granted here in the case of rape is that comparing scenarios such as acorns that soon are to become trees are not trees as oppose to a fetus not being a person until it is born and a society of music lovers kidnapping a person so that a violinist can live due to a blood transfusion from the kidnapped victims body even though ...

... surgical techniques are used to remove an invasive malignancy that extends to the clitoris. Standard surgical procedures are followed in these cases. This includes evaluation and biopsy. Other factors that will affect the technique selected are age, other existing medical conditions, and obesity. Other considerations are the probability of extended hospital care and the development of infection at the surgical site.[3] The surgery proceeds with the use of general anesthesia, and prior to the vulvectomy/clitoridectomy an inguinal lymphyadenectomy is first done. The extent of the surgical site extends one to two centimeters beyond the boundaries of malignancy. Superficial lymph nodes may also need to be removed. If the malignancy is present in muscular tissue in the region, it is also removed. In some cases, the surgeon is able to preserve the clitoris though the malignancy may be extensive. The cancerous tissue is removed and the incision is closed.[3] Post operative care may ...
