Doctors ordered to ‘re-implant ectopic pregnancy’ or face ‘abortion murder’ charge*

Quote
A US state has introduced an extreme anti-abortion bill that orders doctors to perform a procedure that does not exist in medical science – or face life in jail.

Governors in Ohio say medics must re-implant ectopic pregnancies, which happen when a fertilised egg implants itself outside of the womb, or face murder charges.

The condition is a life-threatening and can kill a woman if the embryonic tissue grows unchecked. The embryo that has implanted outside the womb cannot be saved and no procedure exists that could re-implant an ectopic pregnancy.

In countries with strict abortion laws, ectopic pregnancies are one of the few exceptions that allow women to get the procedure, as it is impossible for the egg to develop into a child.

* Headline is a bit misleading as it hasn't been made law yet. Still, the fact they are perusing this after they've been informed by professionals that it is medically impossible to re-implant a fertilised human egg into the womb as part of emergency treatment for an ectopic pregnancy is just feckin' nuts.

Fighting against ignorance on the internet since 1999. It's just taking longer than I hoped.

Has to pass both U.S. house and senate before becoming law.  Zero chance.

'Laziness has won': apostrophe society admits its defeat

A society dedicated to preserving the “much-abused” apostrophe is to be shut down as its chairman said “ignorance and laziness” had won. John Richards, who worked in journalism for much of his career, started the Apostrophe Protection Society in 2001 after he retired. Now 96, Richards is calling time on the society, which lists the three simple rules for correct use of the punctuation mark.

Writing on the society’s website, he said: “Fewer organisations and individuals are now caring about the correct use of the apostrophe in the English language. “We, and our many supporters worldwide, have done our best but the ignorance and laziness present in modern times have won!” Richards started the society after seeing the “same mistakes over and over again” and hoped he would find half a dozen people who felt the same way. He said: “I didn’t find half a dozen people. “Instead, within a month of my plaint appearing in a national newspaper, I received over 500 letters of support, not only from all corners of the United Kingdom, but also from America, Australia, France, Sweden, Hong Kong and Canada.”

My question is, after doing this. How long did it take for her to simply contemplate reversing and driving on....then, why did she not do it?

Poor girl looked mortified in the video.

Not much being said about it on this side of the planet, but in Samoa a widespread measles outbreak has so far killed 60 children - all bar eight of them were under four years old.

Samoa measles epidemic: Death toll rises to 60

Quote
The death toll from Samoa's measles epidemic has risen to 60, with five deaths recorded in the past 24 hours.

All but eight of the dead were children aged under four.

The Ministry of Health said another 171 cases of measles recorded since Tuesday bringing the total to more than 4000.

Of those who are ill, 177 people remain in hospital, including 20 children in critical condition.

It's the eighth day the death toll has risen.

F*ckin' loathe these anti-vaxxer bullshitters.  >:(

Just to add, also a report from a couple of weeks ago mentioning that a mass measles outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has killed approx. 5000 children in the country.
