Crimes and misdemeanours: the case of child abandonment. (1/6)

In 2002, a child was abandoned in a Burger King restaurant in Amsterdam by a Chinese woman, who hoped that the baby would be picked up by someone able to give the child a better life. She was convicted for child abandonment and imprisoned. Whereas some forms of child abandonment are criminalised, others are socially accepted and not even on the ethics agenda. This paper is an invitation to reflect on the inconsistency in the ways in which we prosecute, punish or try to correct some forms of child abandonment and yet make allowances for others.  (+info)

Perinatal characteristics of newborns relinquished at birth. (4/6)

Demographic, perinatal, and newborn characteristics of single mothers relinquishing their newborns for adoption (N = 111) were compared with randomly selected and matched groups of mothers keeping their infants. Relinquishing mothers were younger, more apt to be Caucasian, Catholic, primiparous, and economically independent of government assistance, less likely to plan their pregnancies, and later starting prenatal care. In general, their pregnancies and infants were at no higher neonatal risk than those of other single mothers.  (+info)

Differentials in the planning status of most recent live births to Mexican Americans and Anglos. (5/6)

Data from personal interviews with 705 Mexican American and 363 Anglo women during the 1979 U.S. Mexico Border Survey were analyzed to answer the question, To what extent do Mexican Americans and Anglos differ in having the number of children they want, when they want them? Mexican Americans had a significantly higher percentage of unwanted births than did Anglos. Much of this difference is related to the fact that Mexican Americans, when compared with Anglos, have completed fewer years of schooling and have incomes closer to the poverty threshold than do Anglos. Both Mexican Americans and Anglos had relatively moderate levels of planned births; thus, neither group is in full control of the number and timing of their births. Our results suggest that there is a substantial need for family planning services for Mexican Americans and Anglos in the Southwest.  (+info)

Consequences for children of their birth planning status. (6/6)

Of 1,327 children younger than two in 1986 whose mothers were participants in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 61% were wanted, 34% were mistimed and 5% were unwanted. Planning status is associated with the level of developmental resources the child receives at home: At ages one and older, mistimed and unwanted children score significantly lower on a scale measuring opportunity for skill development and on a scale measuring nonauthoritarian parenting style than their wanted peers; by preschool age, they also have significantly less-positive relationships with their mothers. Measures of the direct effects of planning status on development also indicate that mistimed and unwanted children are at a disadvantage: Those younger than two have higher mean scores for fearfulness than wanted infants and lower scores for positive affect; unintended preschoolers score lower on a measure of receptive vocabulary.  (+info)

Economics books are not normally my cup of tea, but its still a fascinating read. And controversal. One of Levitts arguments is that a major contributing factor to decreasing crime rates in the United States in the mid-90s was the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. That those most likely to get abortions were women who didnt want children or who were poor. Unwanted children or those in difficult economic circumstances are more likely to become criminals. The fact that not as many unwanted children were coming into the world meant when that generation of criminals were coming into their prime, about 20 years after Roe v. Wade, there were much fewer of them ...

I still believe a woman has a right to choose what she does with her body, but if she asks me about abortion I will advise that life is the best option. I have over the last couple of years advised two woman who asked me about having an abortion. They were appalled by my story of my abortions and how I was an unwanted child. I was glad they found it so appalling. After they had their babies they were very happy that they did not decide to do as I did. I am happy they did not do as I did also. I just wish that more people could see that having the mentality that an unwanted being should be put to death simply because it is unwanted is a sick and twisted way to treat the living. Nothing I have been through in my life, no matter how sick or bad it has been, is worse than death and Ive been holding hands with death before. Life is too beautiful a thing to waste and I am done wasting life ...
I hear these men say that if a woman doesnt want to get pregnant, she shouldnt have sex. My question is if men are so concerned about the possibility of a unwanted pregnancy, why dont THEY quit having sex? If theyre so concerned about creating an unwanted child, and having a say in abortion, why dont THEY guarantee that the woman doesnt get pregnant by refusing to have sex with her? Thats what they expect of us. Why dont they ask the same of themselves? Simple. Because they are chicken poop. They are not the ones who get punished with an unwanted pregnancy and they are not the ones who have to take the responsibility of the resulting child. That is chicken poop! Theyre not seen as promiscuous for spreading their seed. Theyre seen as real men... Macho and uncontrolled, as God meant them to be ...
Here are some of the many things Ive learnt so far:. Awake or asleep, the studies show that [unborn babies] are constantly tuned in to their mothers every action, thought, and feeling.. The prenate starts to make movements in response to being touched at 8 weeks.. Women with wanted pregnancies, good self-esteem, and sufficient social support had the calmest babies, whose heart rates returned to normal in the shortest time.. Excessive exposure to stress affects the physiology of the brain.. Unwanted children virtually always suffered lower self-esteem than wanted children.. Short bursts of upset or stress are not harmful to you or your child. It is chronic, ongoing stress that is potentially damaging.. One patient of mine recalled a Peter, Paul and Mary song she had sung repeatedly during her pregnancy. After the birth of her child, that song had a magical effect on the infant: no matter how hard he was crying, whenever his mother started singing that song - and that song alone - ...
point?. Um, Im pretty sure that the corner the Slacktivist community would have you sit in would be the middle of the room.. Seriously, Im as stridently pro-choice as I can be, but Im pretty sure you and I would agree on pretty much everything here, with the possible exception that you might be completely against abortion whereas Im in favor of allowing the choice. I dont think its either a moral good or neutral. I tend think, however, that its a definite moral negative to force a woman who doesnt want/cant afford to bring a child into the world to bring that child into the world. The planet is already quite well populated as it is. And while Id like to believe that every unwanted child could end up in a home that loves and can support that child, Im a little too aware of how reality actually works to consider that more than magical thinking.. Believe you me, I grew up with that magical thinking. I was the sort of Evangelical Fred addresses in his post. I still remember the time I ...
And this ignores the massive social cost one pays from having unwanted children, the time required to raise a child, the expense of raising children, the massive loss of income, the loss of career opportunities in the future.. So, how at risk does a pregnancy have to be to justify a self-defense for the mothers health claim? At what point can you force a woman to take on these risks against her will?. And if your argument is that she was agreeing to take on the risk when she had sex, are you going to remove my right of self-defense if I leave my door open or wear a short skirt in a dark alley? Will I be compelled to donate my blood and organs to anyone I injure?. References ...
My response:My wife and I just adopted a child, and we are in the process of adopting two more. Please dont tell me that we dont care. Just because you wouldnt take on that responsibility doesnt mean someone else wouldnt. There is no such thing as an unwanted child. Our belief as Christians is that every human is created in the image of God, therefore we cannot justify destroying an innocent life because of another persons sin. Whats interesting is that pro-aborts always fall back on the rape issue. However, you believe that a woman should be able to abort her child at any point during her pregnancy for any reason, so dont pretend that youre taking the moral high ground here. Which brings me back to my original comment: How do you account for morality? What is your basis for making any kind of moral judgment? If the fate of the fetus isnt my business, then I could argue that the mothers fate is of no concern of yours. You dont believe in a moral Law-Giver, so how can one collection ...
Obviously human children do better with two parents, and that is an evolutionary advangage. Two people who work as a team for survival also have an advantage over one (of course, if they arent a good team, it can be a disadvantage). For most people, marriage is a contract to work as a team for children and survival. Those are such important issues, and there has to be so much trust, that a marriage contract is sealed with a ceremony thats meant to instill the importance of the agreement. The legal aspect seems there because society too is stabilized by marriages (a bunch of horny people running around and lots unwanted children is not the best situation). Thats one way to explain the outer part of it ...
Christians have been sticking their noses in to where they dont belong for centuries… Scientific Research has NOTHING to do with religion. If Christians are against it then they dont have to use the benefits that may come from this research. Christians dont use Plan-B so they end up with unwanted children… The same should hold true for any future advances in the field of Stem Cell Research. If you dont like where the treatment came from, then tell your doctor you have a moral objection to it and ask for leaches. ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ Faith in Prayer Kills Children http://www.livescience.com/health/080410-bad-prayer-kills.html ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ It isnt THAT hard… But Christians tend to be hypocrites when it comes to this sort of thing… Just like how the VP of P.E.T.A. still uses Insulin for her diabetes even though the insulin came from research that used dogs… She justifies her hypocrisy by saying I am not a ...
I honestly dont think theres a method to convince anti-choice people to be pro-choice except praying for a change in philosophical orientation, which often happens to people after they actually experience needing an abortion, have a friend who needs an abortion, or they go through pregnancy and start to understand how important autonomy is when it comes to reproductive choice. (Although even then, many people still feel like it was okay in MY case, but isnt in general - not a change in orientation, just a belief in their exceptionalism, somehow their abortion or their friends abortion was especially moral, but all other women are just hussies who deserve to be punished with unwanted children. I find this infuriating.) I dont think convincing by degrees is terribly useful and this is even more the case when it comes to quibbling over lines in the sand like legal time limits ...
Would that I could unleash the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on the likes of Tom Davis. Hes the Colorado livestock hauler whos been buying wild horses from the Bureau of Land Management at ten bucks a head, less than I spend on lunch at Paneras. Although hes supposed to be finding good homes for the animals, wild horse advocates are concerned that hes instead shipping them off for slaughter. Given that hes purchased at least 1,700 horses since 2009, I join the advocates in their skepticism. I doubt there are that many good homes for unwanted children, let alone 1,200-pound untrained animals.. His remark, as quoted in a recent Denver Post article, sets off further alarm: Hell, some of the finest meat you will ever eat is a fat yearling colt. That comment turns my stomach. But why? Im not a vegetarian. Its surely the height of hypocrisy to eat meat and wear leather and yet decry the killing and eating of horses. Why should chickens, fish and cows be fair game for my palate but not ...

Neither Jews nor Anglos (or any other whites) are using the Cathedral to advance genetic interests. Its a purely memetic war. You may think of the meme as merely rationalizing the gene; as Nick Land would tell you, this is a false interpretation of whats happening. The memes are independent and selfish. These egregores have a will of their own. This is not to discount the fact that different races tend to create their own idiosyncratic memes, but to buttress the point that memetics isnt strictly subordinate to genetics - surely, a meme that results in your TFR plummeting to below replacement level cannot conceivablely be subordinate to your genetic interests. Now the relevant question is why some memes win and others lose; for instance, why Puritanism-Feminism (which the Anglos invented, and which the Jews have embraced for their own reasons) dominates the world while Freehold and Coverture are long gone. My answer is the old-school conspiracy theorist Kaczynski-ist proposition: the ...

I was struck by the parallels between Pamela Druckermans journey as a parent and my own. Even though I didnt have the cultural or parenting resources of Paris, I was similarly committed to finding a gentler, more nurturing alternative to Americas obsession with raising boys and girls to fit into gender roles. I hoped that I could make my sons childhood as androgynous as possible, recognizing the overwhelming influence of the surrounding culture and even well-intentioned relatives and friends. The degree to which I succeeded is a story for another time. Whats important is that parents (and children, and grandparents) seek out every resource they can find, in order to open up their thinking and question their assumptions. I do wish that this book had been around in 1977, when my son was born, or in 2002, when my grandson was born ...

The DSK scandal seems to reflect/contain/epitomize the essence of the cultural differences between America (Anglos) and France (Latins?

If youre anything like me you probably put off things you dont want to do for a long time. Especially those things that I really dont want to do, like my math homework. This type of procrastination gets even worse when it comes to things that I know I could get in trouble for. What if I was putting off something more important than a test grade? What if I needed to tell my parents I was having an abortion?
When Vote Yes for Life cast the mother as the victim to be saved, they had a problem. What about rape and incest? They were teaching the voters to have sympathy for the mother so when these topics came up it would be cruel to their victim to force her to give birth to an unwanted child. How did they work around this problem? The pro-lifers produced a television ad that promoted the use of the plan-B pill and called it among the best options. How could a pro-life group get so confused? They promoted the wrong victim. Instead of depicting the mother as the victim they should have educated the public about the humanity and rights of the child, when rape and incest came up, the sympathy would rightly still be on the baby and people could see that violence toward a victim is not the solution to the problem. It is the problem ...
Who Chooses? In Roman times, abortion and the destruction of unwanted children was permissible, but as out civilization has aged, it seems that such acts were no longer acceptable by rational human beings, so that in 1948, Canada along with most other nations in the world signed a declaration of the United Nations promising every human being the right to life. The World Medical Association meeting in Geneve at the same time, stated that the utmost respect for human life was to be from the moment of conception. This declaration was re-affirmed when the World Medical Association met in Oslo in 1970. Should we go backwards in our concern for the life of an individual human being? The unborn human is still a human life and not all the wishful thinking of those advocating repeal of abortion laws, can alter this. Those of us who would seek to protect the human who is still to small to cry aloud for its own protection, have been accused of having a 19th Century approach to life in the last third of ...

Because of course there is violence in many other places, such as Great Britain and France. And how about neighboring Mexico? While we decry Americas love affair with guns, Mexico is rent with violence (and was so far before the recent development of the narco-trafficking problem). Indeed, while Americas Wild West is decried for bloodshed (in fact, fewer people were killed in the West between the Civil War and the year 1900 than in one single year in New York City), people, American, Mexican, or other, downplay the innumerable 19th-century deaths in Mexico, even finding such things as the countrys executions romantic (ah, señoritas, sombreros, Mariachi bands, and firing squads). Mexicans routinely put whole garrisons of captured rebels to death - not just Anglos, famously, at the Alamo and Goliad but fellow Hispanics in places like Zacatecas as well - or, when they were in a more generous mood, only shot one prisoner at random out of every 10 ...

My benighted correspondent also complained of the so-called double standard in which we wont see a movie called Black Men Cant Jump: comments are made against us [meaning white folks] on a daily basis in our media and the everyday populace and NOBODY blinks an eye. DWC also insists that something she saw on the TV show Black/White is wrong-that black Americans no longer need fear any violence from anglos on a regular basis, that such a fear is a 1950s artifact. That reminds me of college, when some students of color tried to raise awareness of racism on campus. I had a friend, a white guy who grew up in Mankato, Minnesota, who insisted that there was no racism. Now, how would the average white person know what non-white people might be experiencing?

BACKGROUND:. A finding from the Cholesterol Lowering Atherosclerosis Study (CLAS), a clinical trial, indicated that common carotid intima-media thickness responded more rapidly and more markedly to LDL-C lowering treatment than angiographic coronary stenosis or carotid roughness. New data from a primate model also showed ultrasound detection of intimal thickening in response to a hypercholesterolemic diet within twelve months. These findings suggest that carotid IMT is a reliable and rapidly responding marker of extent of atherosclerosis. However, less than a third of the observed therapeutic benefit on carotid IMT found in CLAS was explained by change in LDL-C and HDL-C, suggesting that related (or other) factors are more directly linked to atherogenic mechanisms. In addition, a Finnish epidemiologic study found that LDL-C was predicative of rate of progression in carotid IMT only in persons with high serum levels of (pro-oxidant) copper. . These and other data support a model of ...

We read with great interest the recent paper by Sims et al,1 wherein they identified a clinically and statistically significant reduction in admissions with asthma following the implementation of a workplace smoking ban in the UK, independent of prevailing temporal trends and other measureable confounding factors. We welcome this important addition to the evidence base in this area, and endorse the authors view that this work addresses important deficiencies in previously published data from our group and others.2 ,3. However, we were surprised that an important limitation of any study using administrative databases for clinicoepidemiological research was not addressed-that of misclassification bias. In particular, we would be concerned that subjects admitted with acute bronchitis, community-acquired pneumonia, or smoking-related chronic obstructive lung disease may be misclassified as patients with asthma or vice versa. In our own study, we attempted to address this deficiency by assessing ...
Nearly one-quarter of American high-school students believe that parents in their neighborhoods rarely are involved in preparing their children for school and schoolwork, a national survey concludes.
If these feelings continue to linger, as they often do, the event will be etched into the portion of the mind that is sensitive to the feeling of abandonment, until the anxiety sufferer will begin to question the viability of the relationship. As this process begins, the one who perceives being abandoned will start to feel unloved and unworthy, and can begin to get angry. The afflicted partner may start to get very controlling in an attempt to save him or herself and the relationship. Sufferers may start to smother their partners to the point where they become jealous if he/she spends free time with anyone else.. People with this disorder fear that their partner will not be dependent upon them, and will leave them to be abandoned once again, as they were in childhood. At times they may feel that in the end people will always let them down, and with these thoughts they can justify why they live defensively, and end relationships prematurely. This also means that they will be constantly on the ...
I think I can safely say we have all experienced some sort of toxicity in a relationship , whether it be with a family member, ex-boyfriend, friends or a work colleague. While many are born into a loving, caring, supporting family, from my many years in the clinic, this is far from the truth for many clients. This can be extremely painful when we have experienced first hand the exile, trauma or abandonment from our family members. Our childhoods and relationships with our family hold the deepest pain and suffering, feelings of abandonment not being lovable, good enough, our misaligned identity of ourselves or feeling like a misfit are embodied and unconsciously expressed throughout other areas of our lives going forward. If you are carrying pain from your family, then it is really important foremost you work on releasing your trauma, work through forgiveness and release any out dated beliefs and behaviours so you dont attract the wrong people and relationships into your life going forward. ...
