U.S. aid in other countries even regarding condom distribution is pathetic.

It amazes me how much power the Warren Jeffs (whoops) I meant the other kook Rick Warren, who presided over Barack Obamas Inauguration have with their (xtian) influence of American health care in foreign policy.

Legal Expert: Total Abortion Bans in 20 States within 18 Months

Regarding eugenics in the U.S.

Sterilization was performed in prisons and mental hospitals up to about 1972.

http://theconversation.com/forced-sterilization-programs-in-califor...

Beginning of the article follows.

In 1942, 18-year-old Iris Lopez, a Mexican-American woman, started working at the Calship Yards in Los Angeles. Working on the home front building Victory Ships not only added to the war effort, but allowed Iris to support her family.

Iris’ participation in the World War II effort made her part of a celebrated time in U.S. history, when economic opportunities opened up for women and youth of color.

However, before joining the shipyards, Iris was entangled in another lesser-known history. At the age of 16, Iris was committed to a California institution and sterilized.

Iris wasn’t alone. In the first half of the 20th century, approximately 60,000 people were sterilized under U.S. eugenics programs. Eugenic laws in 32 states empowered government officials in public health, social work and state institutions to render people they deemed “unfit” infertile.

California led the nation in this effort at social engineering. Between the early 1920s and the 1950s, Iris and approximately 20,000 other people – one-third of the national total – were sterilized in California state institutions for the mentally ill and disabled....

The eugenics movement took root in the United States in the early 1900‘s.

Don't blame it on Nazis.

Why is organ donation automatically  an opt our rather than an opt in?

I applied for a drivers license with an organ donor stamp. When I received the drivers license there wasn't a organ donor stamp on the card. I did this in a small town with a small department of motor vehicles staff. I went back to the DMV and was fortunate to be able to talk with the representative that approved the license.   I asked her why she didn't approve the organ donor stamp.  Her reply was I didn't think you really meant it.

I don't know what was going on in her goofy mind. Curiously thinking that her religious background had something to do with the body being burred in its entirety to go to heaven. (Just a guess).

Anyway I received a new drivers license with a donor stamp.

I'm sure most participants and readers of this thread have heard of women who die giving birth to still born babies. Where an abortion would have saved the mothers life.

It's good Ireland finally allows some abortions. I don't know the details of the restrictions.

It has been muted that we should have a system where it is opposite of what it is now where everyone would be an organ donor unless they specifically opt-out.

Comment by Mrs.B on June 19, 2018 at 17:11

That it is.

I've heard something along the same lines before and it is a very good example.
