Anti-Abortion Law Made Woman Give Birth To Doomed Baby With NoBrain

Over the last few months, there has been a resurgence of stringent abortion laws across several US states, focusing on restricting the bodily autonomy of women as well as criminalizing doctors who perform abortions, even in cases where the mother’s life is at stake. Many have written how the laws put women at risk of losing not only their freedom or livelihood but also their lives. An essay has now been published anonymously by a doctor in the Annals of Internal Medicine titled “The Myth of Choice”. It tells the story of a woman who had to give birth to an infant who suffered from anencephaly. The fetus had no skull and no brain, just a stem. It affects 1,206 pregnancies a year in the US …

Georgene Huang & Liv McConnell Image via Getty Images / Aleutie Considering at least 40% of middle- and large-sized U.S. companies still offer zero paid maternity leave to employees, we’re not saying this benefit isn’t worth having. But as Sarah Morgan, a Senior HR Director of SafeStreets USA, said, to stop at a paid maternity leave benefit is to fail to acknowledge our expanding understanding of families and the ways those families need to be supported. “The definition of family is changing, and people are living longer,” Morgan said. “Employees need more than just time away from work when they have a baby or someone dies. They also need time for school-aged children, aging parents, deployed spouses and even pets…when …

This is because many genes serve more than one function. As such, tinkering with DNA can lead to a number of unintended consequences. The edited gene (CCR5), for example, has been linked to cognitive activity – hence, suggestions earlier this year that removal of the said gene may boost memory and rev up learning potential – and vulnerability …
