Ohio Bill: Transplant an Ectopic Pregnancy, or Go to Jail | Medpage Today

by pregnancy journalist
In this Facebook Live interview, Daniel Grossman, MD, of the University of California San Francisco, talks with MedPage Today about an Ohio bill that would establish a felony called “abortion murder.” Physicians would face 15 years to life in prison for performing abortions, but they’re off the hook if the mother’s life is in danger — and if they take all steps necessary to protect the fetus. In the case of ectopic pregnancy, the bill mandates that physicians transplant the embryo, which is impossible. Grossman talks about the “evidence,” or lack thereof, for ectopic pregnancy transplantation cited by the authors […]

The Economics of Caregiving for Working Mothers

by pregnancy journalist
Authors’ note: CAP uses “Black” and “African American” interchangeably throughout many of our products. We chose to capitalize “Black” in order to reflect that we are discussing a group of people and to be consistent with the capitalization of “African American.” For the other demographic groups considered in this report, the authors defer to source language where applicable. Introduction and summary All across the nation—regardless of region and across a diversity of family types, racial and ethnic groups, and ages of children—mothers are driving forces of the American economy. Virtually all of the economic gains experienced by the typical middle-class family since 1970, […]

GOP lawmaker admits he didn’t research ectopic pregnancy before writing backwards bill about it

by pregnancy journalist
Wait, a Republican legislator talked to a single lobbyist — instead of doctors or scientists — when writing legislation about a complex and emotionally fraught subject? That can’t be. According to the AP, Ohio state Rep. John Becker worked with a conservative anti-choice lobbyist while writing a bill that would allow insurance companies to cover the reimplantation of ectopic pregnancies — nonviable pregnancies in which a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus. There is no procedure for reimplanting such a pregnancy, of course, but that didn’t stop Becker from imagining there could be.  The bill prohibits insurers from covering abortion services, but provides […]

Whakaari/White Island: Burns surgeon with three-month-old back from maternity leave to help injured | Stuff.co.nz

by pregnancy journalist
Burns specialist Deirdre Seoighe arrived at work with a three-month-old baby in tow. Within minutes the Irish born surgeon was grappling with burns in numbers she had never seen before while staffers cuddled her tiny baby. At hospital she slogged so hard and for so long that she couldn’t remember how many hours she worked either in theatre or on the wards coordinating the massive effort to save lives after the Whakaari / White Island eruption. “It is a bit stressful to see this number of traumas come in, but it’s lovely to hold a sleeping baby. It’s kind of a de-stressor.” At the start of the […]

AOC Compares Childbirth to Dog Breeding In a Bizarre Pitch For Paid Maternity Leave

by pregnancy journalist
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared having children to breeding dogs in a bizarre pitch for longer paid maternity leave, claiming that society treats dogs and puppies better than human mothers and their babies. Now, if she were speaking on the treatment of puppies versus unborn human babies who are systematically poisoned and dismembered in thousands of abortion clinics across the country, I’d be inclined to agree with her. But that’s not the point she was making – or was, at least, trying to. “Do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given […]

Boris Johnson: children of working class working mums more likely to mug you

by pregnancy journalist
Boris Johnson claimed that children of working mothers on lower incomes were “unloved and undisciplined” and more likely to become “hoodies” who would “mug you on the street corner”, it has been revealed. In his 2006 book Have I Got Views For You, Johnson also said that a growing tendency for women to work had seen women “socially gestapoed into the workplace”. Last month it was revealed that in a column in The Spectator, Johnson – who won’t even admit how many children by single mothers he is responsible for – described the children of single mothers as “ill-raised, ignorant, […]
