What's the quirk with birth control and stamana medicine?

Tiger Bones, Rhinosaruous  horns, and western medicine for erectile disfunction seems to be driving manlihood.

Is it something about procreation because parent's say you should have a "Baby."

What is it with the human psyche that some think the need to have a baby makes one complete?

Anti-Science Trump Administration Draws Thousands to the Streets Wo....

Sunday, April 23, 2017 By Katie Klabusich and Zach Roberts, Truthout | Report

"During the campaign, Trump showed a propensity for shirking and outright denying scientific facts, particularly on the environment and health care. Then, in March, the White House budget blueprint off a new ripple of fear in the science community in response to the massive cuts to government-funded medical and scientific research -- nearly across the board. He takes specific aim at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as the National Institutes of Health, which stands to lose one-fifth of its budget -- nearly $6 billion...."

I wonder about how much environmental pollution that's in our food and water contributes to autism.

Some Christian 'Scientists' have been arrested for medical child abuse.

Texas woman executed for starving child to death.

"HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A Texas woman was executed Wednesday evening for her role in the torture and starvation death of her girlfriend's 9-year-old son.

Lisa Ann Coleman, 38, died at 6:24 p.m. CT, 12 minutes after being injected with a lethal dose of pentobarbital.

Before the drug was administered, Coleman said goodbye to several friends and "the girls on the Row." There was a slight gasp and her eyes closed. Her death appeared to be calm and peaceful, in contrast with some other recent lethal injection executions in the U.S.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied her final appeal less than two hours before her sentence was to be carried out.

Coleman became the ninth convicted killer and second woman to receive lethal injection in Texas this year. Nationally, she's the 15th woman executed since the Supreme Court in 1976 allowed the death penalty to resume. During that same time, nearly 1,400 men have been put to death.

Coleman, who was convicted in 2006 of kidnapping and starving to death Davontae Williams, spent Wednesday afternoon in a holding cell inside the Huntsville Unit of the Texas State Penitentiary. She was to be offered a final meal of either chicken or pork. She spent the morning talking with visitors, occasionally crying, and at other times laughing, according to prison officials..."

In Child Deaths, a Test for Christian Science.

"David and Ginger Twitchell, a Christian Science couple from Massachusetts who relied on prayer rather than on doctors as their young son lay dying from an obstructed bowel, were convicted of involuntary manslaughter last month. It was a stunning verdict, coming as it did in the very shadow of the Mother Church in Boston.

But the death of 2-year-old Robyn Twitchell and the conviction that followed was only the latest of a number of successful prosecutions of Christian Scientists whose children died agonizing deaths after spiritual healing failed.

The prosecutions, like many historic constitutional cases, represent a clash of apparent absolutes: of religious liberty and parental autonomy on the one hand and the right of the states to protect children - and the rights of the children themselves - on the other.

While the tenets of the church, particularly its reliance on prayer in lieu of standard medical treatment, remain fundamentally unchanged since Mary Baker Eddy founded it in Boston in 1879, they have come under intense attack in courtrooms and state legislatures."
