The future of artificial wombs

by Carder While it may be worth thinking about the impact artificial wombs could have on our society one day, urgent discussion of this alternate future is premature. There’s no need to get too excited or freaked out about the idea anytime soon. For now, growing a human baby in an external device remains solidly […]

Measles outbreak draws attention to aborted fetal cells in vaccines

jenny-mccarthy-vaccines-the-view_69447_990x742The issue†of childhood vaccinations provides a†rare meeting place for†liberals and conservatives.

There is†no shortage of progressives†like Robert Kennedy, Jr. who champion the anti-vaccination movement.

But there is also†a contingent of conservatives†who oppose it as well. As noted by†Vox:

They are by no means guided by a singular ideology. They may be the vaccine-hesistant Amish, vaccine-refusing Christian Scientists, Jenny McCarthy acolytes, granola crunchers who don’t want to put “unnatural” things in their kids’ bodies, or simply worried parents who delay immunizing their children.

And there are also†pro-lifers.

Until now pro-life opposition to vaccinations hasn’t gotten much airplay.

Lesbians sue sperm bank over accidentally mixed-race baby

by Carder On August 21, 2012, Jennifer gave birth to Payton, a beautiful, obviously mixed-race baby girl. Jennifer bonded with Payton easily and she and Amanda love her very much. Even so, Jennifer lives each day with fears, anxieties, and uncertainty about her future and Payton’s future…. Though compelled to repress her individuality amongst family […]

Bioethicists upset that “non-academics” dislike eugenic infanticide

[Bioethicists] Giubilini and Minerva [the same authors of a paper last year supporting infanticide for Down syndrome] are expressing surprise that the Down syndrome community opposes their agenda of eugenics and infanticide…. They would like to dismiss anyone who disagrees with their conclusions as being irrational because we donít appreciate the opportunities of what they […]

Animal lover equates elk shooting with Newtown massacre

I don’t see a whole lot of difference between the shooting of this defenseless elk and the shooting of school children in Connecticut. ~ Unnamed female attendee at a vigil for an elk (nicknamed “Big Boy,” “George,” and “Elmo” by neighborhood residents) shot by a Boulder, Colorado off-duty police officer, as quoted by CBS News, […]

Babies created with DNA from three parents – a 2012 “Best Sex Moment”?

The Center for Healthy Sex has released its “25 Best and Worst Sex Moments of 2012” [WARNING: vulgar] on Huffington Post.

I didn’t know what to expect when perusing the list, but I know I did not expect “BEST #8: Embryos Created From Two Women, One Man.”

How in the world could this qualify as a “Best Sex Moment”?

Human cloning: unethical or an act of mercy?

During public lectures the Cambridge University scientist said he regularly asks his audience if they would be in favour of allowing parents of deceased children, who are no longer fertile, to create another using the mother’s eggs and skin cells from the first child, assuming the technique was safe and effective. “The average vote on […]

PETA equates eating Thanksgiving turkeys with eating human babies

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is well known to use sensationalism to get noticed. So I hesitate to even draw attention to PETA’s Thanksgiving ploy, because I suppose I’m falling right into their hands. But equating human babies with turkeys bears mention as a glimpse into the warped mind of PETA founder Ingrid […]
