Public and formal opposition was not well organized and mostly came from advocates of medical cannabis, who objected to "Part V: Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana".[47][48] A key spokesperson was Steve Sarich, whom an Esquire blog has called one of the "great marijuana prohibitionists of 2012."[49] A Facebook group, Patients Against New Approach Washington (PANAW) began vocal opposition.[50] A letter was sent to I-502 sponsors by Richard Bayer, MD; lawyers David Arganian and Jeffrey Steinborn; Gil Mobley, MD; Vivian McPeak, Executive Director of Seattle Hempfest; and Ric Smith, who has been a prominent patient advocate since 1996, arguing that I-502's DUIC language was unnecessary, unscientific, and unfair.[51] Dominic Holden, of The Stranger, disagreed with this criticism, citing the same 2009 study from the National Institutes of Health opponents to 502 had referenced.[52] The board of directors for NORML ...

The embryos that became Lulu and Nana were generated during a clinical trial run by He of the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, while he was on leave from the university and working through Shenzhen Harmonicare Women's and Children's Hospital.[11] The trial had recruited couples who wanted to have children; in order to participate, the man had to be HIV-positive and the woman, uninfected.[11] The couples were recruited through a Beijing-based AIDS advocacy group called Baihualin.[11] He kept the clinical trial secret from the scientific community, and, as of 28 November, it was unclear whether the participants had given truly informed consent.[4][12] He, the researcher, took sperm and eggs from the couples, performed in vitro fertilization with them, and then edited the genomes of the embryos using CRISPR/Cas9.[11] The editing targeted a gene, CCR5, that codes for a protein that HIV uses to enter cells.[12][13] He was trying to ...

The anti-abortion movement is support for the view that abortion is wrong. Another word for this movement is pro-life (meaning support for life). These people think that abortion is wrong and that the law should not allow it. On the other hand, people who think the law should let women decide whether to have abortions are called pro-choice. People who are pro-life believe that all humans, including the unborn, have a right to life. For this reason, they believe abortion is wrong and that it is murder. They believe that an unborn baby has life as soon as it has been conceived, so they believe the law should make abortion a crime to protect innocent life while in the womb. Many pro-life people think women who are pregnant and do not want to raise a child should look for alternatives to abortion such as adoption. Some pro-life people think that abortion is okay in some conditions such as rape or incest. There are many advocacy groups that want to help women considering abortion, and try to ...

Mariners spend much of their life beyond the reach of land. They sometimes face dangerous conditions at sea or on Lakes - the fishing port of Gloucester, Massachusetts has a seaside memorial listing over 10,000 fishermen that lost their lives to the sea, and the Great Lakes have seen over 10,000 lost vessels since the 1800s, yet men and women still go to sea. For some, the attraction is a life unencumbered with the restraints of life ashore. Seagoing adventure and a chance to see the world also appeal to many seafarers. Whatever the calling, those who live and work at sea invariably confront social isolation.. Findings by the Seafarer's International Research Center indicate a leading cause of mariners leaving the industry is "almost invariably because they want to be with their families." U.S. merchant ships typically do not allow family members to accompany seafarers on voyages. Industry experts increasingly recognize isolation, stress, and fatigue as occupational hazards. Advocacy groups ...
The history of intersex surgery is intertwined with the development of the specialities of pediatric surgery, pediatric urology, and pediatric endocrinology, with our increasingly refined understanding of sexual differentiation, with the development of political advocacy groups united by a human qualified analysis, and in the last decade by doubts as to efficacy, and controversy over when and even whether some procedures should be performed. Prior to the medicalization of intersex, Canon and common law referred to a person's sex as male, female or hermaphrodite, with legal rights as male or female depending on the characteristics that appeared most dominant. The foundation of common law, the Institutes of the Lawes of England described how a hermaphrodite could inherit "either as male or female, according to that kind of sexe which doth prevaile." Single cases have been described by legal cases sporadically over the centuries. Modern ideas of ...

Katie Olivia Hopkins (born 13 February 1975) is an English media personality. She first came to notice in 2007 as a reality television contestant and later became a columnist for British newspapers, initially The Sun (from October 2013) and later the MailOnline (from autumn 2015 until 2017). Hopkins has been accused of racism by journalists, advocacy groups and politicians for her comments about migrants. Her role as a presenter for the radio station LBC was terminated in May 2017 following her comments on Twitter about the Manchester Arena bombing. In 2016, Mail Online was forced to pay £150,000 to a Muslim family whom Hopkins had falsely accused of extremist links; and in a 2017 libel case, Hopkins was personally required to pay £24,000 in damages and £107,000 in legal costs to Jack Monroe after making defamatory remarks on Twitter. Later in 2017, Mail Online was forced to pay substantial damages and legal costs to a teacher about whom Hopkins had made false claims. A day before, in late ...
Although many diseases (such as heart failure) may have a worse prognosis than most cases of cancer, cancer is the subject of widespread fear and taboos. The euphemism of "a long illness" to describe cancers leading to death is still commonly used in obituaries, rather than naming the disease explicitly, reflecting an apparent stigma.[198] In Nigeria, one local name for cancer translates into English as "the disease that cannot be cured".[199] This deep belief that cancer is necessarily a difficult and usually deadly disease is reflected in the systems chosen by society to compile cancer statistics: the most common form of cancer-non-melanoma skin cancers, accounting for about one-third of cancer cases worldwide, but very few deaths[200][201]-are excluded from cancer statistics specifically because they are easily treated and almost always cured, often in a single, short, outpatient procedure.[202] Western conceptions of patients' ...

The Liberty Alliance Project was an organization formed in September 2001 to establish standards, guidelines and best practices for identity management in computer systems. It grew to more than 150 organizations, including technology vendors, consumer-facing companies, educational organizations and governments. It released frameworks for federation, identity assurance, an Identity Governance Framework, and Identity Web Services. By 2009, the Kantara Initiative took over the work of the Liberty Alliance. The group was originally conceived and named by Jeff Veis, at Sun Microsystems based in Menlo Park, California. The initiative's goal, which was personally promoted by Scott McNealy of Sun, was to unify technology, commercial and government organizations to create a standard for federated, identity-based Internet applications as an alternative to technology appearing in the marketplace controlled by a single entity such as Microsoft's Passport. Another Microsoft initiative, HailStorm, was renamed ...
