Pamela and Jeremy Plowman, now divorced, filed separate wrongful birth lawsuits seeking damages because their son was born with ‘several medical issues, including cerebral palsy’. (Medically savvy readers would immediately note that cerebral palsy often results from complications during childbirth, rather than something observable prenatally.) A perusal of the court decision reveals claims that the child has a small corpus callosum, microcephaly, seizure disorder, does not walk, and is non-verbal. The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in favor of the appellants, noting that 23 other states allow such lawsuits. The suit specifically addresses damages to the parents resulting from the wrongful birth, and does not seek compensation to address the medical issues of their child.
There is a way for health care providers in Iowa to address this problem. In 2002, the courts came to a similar conclusion in France, resulting in a prompt response by physicians refusing to order ultrasounds to pregnant women. A law to protect physicians from damages if they were unable to diagnose a prenatal disability was very quickly passed. Even doctors who don’t disagree with killing the disabled could get on board with this action, since ultrasounds are far from infallible. Many false positive and false negative diagnoses result from the imperfect technology currently at hand. The current situation in Iowa will cost the lives of many babies with disabilities, as well as those who have no such difficulties, as health care providers increasingly recommend abortion to save themselves from this added liability.
Dr. David Sanders, Associate Biology Professor at Purdue, and local W. Lafayette politician, demonstrates career capping logic, in a non-debate on the abortion issue. Hear his argument conflating a liver cell and a totipotent zygote cell. The other highlight of the debate is Sanders’ claim that aborted baby pics are “child pornography“. He seems to elicit a paranoia that the forces of theocracy are out to control everyone. Yes, his migration away from science and towards democrat politics is timely, but he might want to ponder which theocratic groups tend to be more restrictive of personal freedoms.
A recent study published in E Bio Medicine, grabbed data of a group of infants vaccinated with DTP and/or Oral Polio from 3 to 5 months of age. Vaccines were given out every three months, making it possible to grab data based on birth date, rather than health state of the infants, eliminating a significant source of bias that results from not vaccinating babies who are ill.
DTP protects infants from the diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus, but might be increasing mortality from other causes. Oral polio vaccine did not make things worse, but might have mitigated the problem, according to the data from this study, carried out from cases collected in the 1980s in an urban area of Guinea-Bissau.
This calls for more collection of data on how vaccines affect mortality from other causes than the diseases being prevented. Check it out HERE.
No news here. The long standing practice of FOX news to pay off accusations of sexual harassment has been featured once more. Apparently it’s time for the network reshuffle the lineup. Business is as usual.
Just think of this as analogous to delaying the revelation that the morning after pill doesn’t work, until after the forces of “planned unparenthood” rolled out their employee training program and marketing of IUDs. Or else think of all the other public figures downed by moldy 40 year old accusations which had been common industry knowledge.
As long as a person supports abortion, any sexual expression, advance, imposition, assault or rape is forgiven by the left.
The entertainment industry is rife with much more extreme behaviors than those specified in the accusations against O’Reilly. This might be why they were able to garner a hundred celebrity signatures on the guitar that Planned Parenthood is raffling as a fundraiser.
What’s the Pharmer policy? If you accidentally surf to a FOX news story online, do your best to avoid triggering the ads, as with any other untrustworthy alphabet news network.
After the Onion’s “Abortionplex” parody (which fooled a fair proportion of first time readers), comes the real thing. Any news article bears checking for fakeness, these days, so your friendly Pharmer brings the fact that Carafem, the loud and proud abortion provider, really means it.
ABC aired their first interview with President Trump, who nailed David Muir on ABC’s interest in the Women’s embarrassing March, vs. their decade’s long NON-coverage of the huge, annual March for Life.
The very anxious Stephanie Land has announced, at the Washington Post, that Trump’s election has dissipated her reproductive drive. Apparently she is a single mom with 2 kids, but is losing the drive to find a partner because her hope in the future is gone.
She is not the only leftist who’s reproductive drive has been adversely affected by the election of Trump. Quite a number of them have been announcing their hopelessness publicly.
A new blog category has been born. This announcement from Stephanie also fits the following essential category.
The Corporate Heads at Kelloggs discovered that their ad buyer affiliates were planting their brands on Breitbart. Since that right wing website and it’s 45 million viewers are said not to be in line with Kelloggs Corporate Values (whatever those are), the company is working to remove its ads.
This has brought about a petition and a #dumpkelloggs campaign, as well as a boycott from those in middle America who are tired of being urinated upon by the elites.
Speaking of urination, it appears that Kelloggs products have also been urinated upon. A video of a person doing this (taken at the Memphis facility in 2014, according to Kelloggs) have been making their way around the net. Perhaps Kelloggs needs to be carefully cleaning its own house before passing judgment upon others. The ‘golden cereal’ video will be HERE until Kelloggs finds it and strong arms the site owners into taking it down.
