PRO-CHOICE Journal: Banning Abortion Saves Babies

OBJECTIVES: This article examines the effect of abortion legalization on fertility rates in the United States. METHODS: Fertility rates were compared over time between states that varied in the timing of abortion legalization. RESULTS: States legalizing abortion experienced a 4% decline in fertility relative to states where the legal status of abortion was unchanged. The relative reductions in births to teens, women more than 35 years of age, non-White women, and unmarried women were considerably larger. If women did not travel between states to obtain an abortion, the estimated impact of abortion legalization on birth rates would be about 11%. CONCLUSIONS: A complete recriminalization of abortion nationwide could result in 440,000 additional births per year. A reversal of the Roe v Wade decision leaving abortion legal in some states would substantially limit this impact because of the extent of travel between states.

North Korean Leader Kim is 'ALL IN'

Neocon Democrats and Republicans are expressing their skepticism over the Kim-Trump summit -- trying to cover their soft rumps in case things go bad. But everyone is missing the obvious.....

North Korean News Media covered the summit in REAL TIME.

This is a first for the way they normally operate....In the past they always scrub reports for a few days before releasing anything important. NOT THIS TIME. Kim chose to walk this highwire without any net.

NK news media is now also already proclaiming that President Trump WILL visit NK. North Koreans expect President Trump They also published the entire jointly signed concord document including the promise to DENUCLEARIZE the Peninsula.
Unlike the in the US, the NK news media is not only Kim's cheerleader, it is IS THE VOICE OF KIM.

So now the naysayers say Kim can just go back on his word? Imagine Babe Ruth pointing to the bleachers and then not swinging for them!

Do you think the man who proposes to his girlfriend at halftime doesn't care how she answers?

People do not make promises in public which they don't intend to keep. *

Especially, Koreans who place Honor above all else. Kim now loses face with his people if he stabs Trump in the back or does anything other than follow thru with the only promises ever made live on North Korean TV. He also has placed supreme trust in Mr. Trump, for if the agreement goes badly on account of US perfidy (or if Trump turns down Kim's invitation to visit), then Mr. Kim gets credit for being played the fool. North Korea's Supreme Leader is all in, BIGLY.

* politicians running for office excepted. Neither Trump nor Kim have that excuse.

Youtube hides IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) problems

Lately I've been reading more about IVF/Assisted Reproduction Technologies.  Turns out genetic scientists are very worried that 'hot-wiring' human reproduction could be skipping important developmental steps.

There is a whole new field of genetics known as EPIgenetics which looks at how cells with exactly the same chromosomes know how to differentiate and become totally different cell-types.  In particular these scientists are trying to warn that any one of the following steps....

1. stimulating ovaries artificially
2. extracting eggs from the body
3. fertilizing eggs in a petri dish
4. freezing the resulting embryos
5. thawing them
6. introducing them to an artificially prepared womb

.....might be causing embryos to miss out on important triggering events that naturally conceived children NATURALLY experience. (btw I should mention that the Church condemns IFV because
1. masturbation violates the 6th Commandment
2. the destruction of most of the embryos conceived violates the 5th Commandment
3. playing God violates the 1st Commandment.
many Catholics are not aware of this despite Pope Francis' warnings)

Research scientists  lament that the whole American IVF industry is unregulated and largely unmonitored.
The children's health is not followed up in a way that might conclusively determine if there were longterm problems with any of the procedures. Basically, if a problem doesn't show up in the first year of life, IVF children are given a 'normal' label.  This is despite research, carried out on lab mice, that indicates there are  long-term complications for IVF conceived offspring as they reach adulthood.

It is possible to find these problems by searching internet articles. Youtube, however, is a totally different story. Any search on youtube will bring up smiling parents and reassuring doctors. "Nothing to see HERE! Move along!" or "Jump in, the water's just fine!!!".  I suspect there is lots of money being spent to keep the public in the dark!

Below are links to medical articles indicating that

1. IVF offspring are already more likely to have birth defects
2. IVF 'healthy' teenage offspring are already suffering from poorer health, e.g. hypertension, and higher obesity rates
3. No one seems to want to look very closely

 2004ncbi lack of surveillance

"Feb 27, 2004 - In this era of heightened involvement of institutional review boards in even minimally invasive research, it is surprising that there is a relative lack of such surveillance in developing methods for creating and culturing human embryos intended for birth"

2017 cambridge

"accumulating data suggests that individuals conceived by ART may also have an increased risk of ageing-related chronic metabolic disorders, the evidence to date is obtained from pre-clinical studies, or small human cohorts. Thus large scale, well-controlled epidemiological studies are necessary. "

"imprinting disorders are rare, an increased relative risk associated with ART (e.g. a 9-fold risk of BWS) (9) translates into a low absolute risk and is unlikely to be a major concern for prospective parents. "

2002 New England Journal of Medicine

"Infants conceived with use of intracytoplasmic sperm injection or in vitro fertilization have twice as high a risk of a major birth defect as naturally conceived infants."

"n vitro fertilization was introduced into practice with little formal evaluation of its effects on the health of the children conceived with this procedure."

2006 Netherlands study

"Conclusions: Our observations indicate that body fat composition in IVF children is disturbed. Follow-up of IVF children to monitor body fat pattern and potentially related health problems from adolescence into adulthood is of great importance."

Endocrinology Journal 2017 looks at 8-18 year olds

"Both systolic and diastolic blood
pressures were higher in IVF children (109 11 vs. 105 10 mm
Hg in controls, P 0.001; and 61 7 vs.59 7mmHgin
controls, P 0.001, respectively). Furthermore, IVF children
were 2.1 times more likely to be in the highest systolic blood

We found that there may be an excess occurrence of major cardiovascular, urogenital, chromosomal, and musculoskeletal defects associated with assisted conception. "

How to get banned by the Hoover Institution

Nice article, Mr. Hanson. Maybe 'social conservatives' are finally seeing that their alliance with libertarians and 'fiscal conservatives' was cobbled together and was unnatural. The super-rich's interests are not ours!

Why does Hoover allow hundreds of commenters with names like 'hominid' and 'southernnationalist', but not 'kneeling catholic'?  BEATS ME!!!

Maybe I need to ask Mark Shea, who also banned me recently :-(

2017: SAMOA officially declares itself CHRISTIAN NATION

While I wasn't paying attention...

President Tuilaepa signed the amendment to Samoa's Constitution making it a "Christian nation founded of God the Fatherthe Son and the Holy Spirit"

from Radio New Zealand....

Tuilaepa says no to same sex marriage in Samoa

1:22 pm on 12 December 2017 

Samoa's Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi is adamant there will be no same sex marriage in Samoa.
Tuilaepa described same sex marriage as an abomination and a "Sodom and Gomorrah practice" at his weekly media conference on Friday.

He said there is no true Christian country in the world which would allow it and it would not be allowed in Samoa as long as it remained a Christian country.
Tuilaepa and his Human Rights Protection Party changed the country's constitution earlier this year to formally make Samoa a Christian state.
Tuilaepa earlier joked ....Christian Nation
