    According to Texas law he wasn’t old enough or heavy enough to need a death certificate, but he got a proper burial anyway. Allison’s son was 13 weeks and 4 days when she lost him.

    FULL TITLE: Pregnancy Test That Can Predict Down Syndrome, Miscarriage, And Twins May Be Available In Just 2 Years The days of wondering what to expect when you’re expecting may soon be over. Researchers in the UK are working on eliminating much of the mystery surrounding pregnancies by developing a mail-in test that can predict everything from whether or not a couple is having twins to if an unborn child may have Down syndrome, using nothing more than a urine sample. MAP Diagnostics is the company behind the first-of-its-kind pregnancy test that would reveal intricate details of both a mother...

Maybe writing about abortion is not what I’m supposed to do.I was thinking that way for about a month. I didn’t feel like writing. I felt somewhat disillusioned by the movement, disappointed by...

    Pregnancy loss is a common and painful condition for gestational women, accounting for 25-40% of total pregnancy, having become a serious social-medical issue worldwide. Animal studies and clinical investigations have indicated that the cause of many mid-term miscarriage/abnormal pregnancy has been seeded very early during the onset of embryo implantation. Epidemiological study also showed that maternal stress at early pregnancy is strongly associated with various complications during ongoing gestation. However, whether and how the process of embryo implantation is affected by environmental factors such as stress induced sympathetic activation remained elusive. Considering the mammalian uterus is an organ with extensive...

    A mother is suing the obstetrician who she claims misdiagnosed her pregnancy as ectopic and injected her foetus with an abortant, resulting in birth defects. Thirty-five-year-old Rachel Schoger of Caldwell, Idaho, says she was four weeks five days pregnant with her daughter, Seraphine, when her doctor injected her foetus with chemotherapy drug methotrexate in 2006. Two weeks later, the baby was found inside the uterus. And against all odds, Seraphine made it through term. But the little girl will never lead a normal life, her mother says, after she was born without reproductive organs or a rectum as a result...

A very horrific incident happened this week to her daughter, who was expecting her first child. Unfortunately, she misscarried the baby at 13 weeks gestation. If the devastation of that was not enough, it happened in the hospital while she was on the toilet. The nurse instructed them to leave it there and she would go get a pathology box.

    The wound comes from well-meaning people. “Well, it wasn’t that far along.” “You can always have another child.” “Lots of people go through this.” Miscarriage is a tragedy that so many people misunderstand. They are not quite sure how to console a friend or relative who has suffered this loss. While there are no magic formulas, there is one fundamental truth that needs to stay front and center: a miscarriage is the loss of a child who is just as real and has just as much value as any other child of any age. A woman who has a miscarriage...

Such term does not include a naturally occurring expulsion of a fetus known medically as a 'spontaneous abortion' and popularly as a 'miscarriage' so long as there is no human involvement whatsoever in...

But if a new excerpt obtained by the New York Post is any indication, the George W. Bush we may see tonight isn’t going to hold much back, and it could get graphic. According to the Post, Bush will recall a detailed story about what set him down the path to becoming pro-life. That story includes his mother, Barbara, preserving and showing a young George one of her miscarried fetuses. From the Post:

    Too much caffeine during pregnancy may increase the risk of miscarriage, a new study says, and the authors suggest that pregnant women may want to reduce their intake or cut it out entirely. Many obstetricians already advise women to limit caffeine, though the subject has long been contentious, with conflicting studies, fuzzy data and various recommendations given over the years. The new study, being published Monday in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, finds that pregnant women who consume 200 milligrams or more of caffeine a day — the amount in 10 ounces of coffee or 25 ounces of tea...

    Thinness 'poses miscarriage risk' Women who are very underweight before they become pregnant are 72% more likely to miscarry in the first three months of pregnancy, a study suggests. A London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine team looked at 600 women who had miscarried and 6,000 whose pregnancies continued past 12 weeks. They found that eating fruit and vegetables, and also chocolate, daily helped reduce the risk of miscarriage. Those classed as underweight had a body mass index (BMI) under 18.5. While we still don't have all the answers, these findings are going to help women who want...

    The lingering distress, sadness and guilt brought on by an induced abortion is worse than that of a miscarriage and decreases much more slowly as time goes on, according to a five-year study of Norwegian women published yesterday. In the aftermath of abortion, women "experienced more mental distress long after the event -- two and five years afterwards -- than women who had a miscarriage," the researchers reported. Along with "high levels" of anxiety and feelings of guilt and shame, the women who had voluntarily ended their pregnancy also "had to make efforts to avoid thoughts about the event," the...

    Debra Lynn Poirier, with daughter Jesyka, 9, addresses a news conference at Queen's Park yesterday in which she described her miscarriage and the subsequent loss of the fetus by hospital staff. An empty urn sits atop a bedroom cabinet in the St. Catharines home of Debra Lynn Poirer and Leo Rochon. It was supposed to contain the ashes of their son, miscarried during the 17th week of pregnancy, earlier this month. But in a tragic mix-up, St. Catharines General Hospital somehow lost the fetus, even though staff were aware of the parents' intentions to have a cremation and funeral service."Losing...

  • A miscarriage of democracy (decision to commute the death sentences of 167 inmates in Illinois)

    When Illinois Governor George Ryan reached the line "I will no longer tinker with the machinery of death" at Northwestern University last Saturday, announcing his decision to commute the death sentences of 167 inmates of Illinois's Death Row, his audience leapt to their feet and applauded. Now, think about that. Why would people cheer the news that 167 convicted murderers would no longer be at risk of execution? If those present were convinced that innocent men were on Death Row, they might reasonably be relieved that a grave miscarriage of justice had been averted. But they would also know that...
