Doty, who prefers to be referred to as “they” rather than “he” or “she”, told CBC they are “raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are.” They added: “I’m recognising them...

    FULL TITLE: End-of-life debate turns to newborns: ‘Postnatal abortion’ morally acceptable in some cases, ethicist says Doctors would be justified to end the lives of some terminally impaired newborn babies, says a prominent Canadian bioethicist in a report that pushes the country’s euthanasia debate into provocative new territory. Much of the discussion of physician assisted-death in Canada has centred around adult patients capable of making known how they want to end their lives. But Udo Schuklenk, a Queen’s University philosophy professor, argues that in rare cases of severely impaired, deeply suffering newborns, actively causing death is morally acceptable, if still...

    I can't even place the very first moment I heard of it, but I was in my very early teens when the internet started "happening."By the time I was 20 we didn't know what we'd do without it, and that was before social media like Facebook was even created.I say that because I really try to imagine in my mind living in the world without any of it, which is only possible because the first third of my life was that way. In some ways it seems nice to me, like life would be less...noisy.And then I see something like...
  • Newborn baby’s smell is as addictive as drugs or food: study

    02/24/2014 8:47:51 PM PST · by Altariel · 30 replies
    TORONTO – For women, smelling a newborn baby feels as good as drugs are to addicts or cheeseburgers to those just breaking a fast, new Montreal research suggests. A University of Montreal scientist says a newborn baby’s odour lights up the reward centres in our brain in a way other scents can’t. And for women – specifically moms – the experience, a rush of dopamine to the brain, is heightened. The reaction is so strong, it exists even if the baby isn’t in front of you. It’s chemistry between mom and baby. “What we’ve shown for the first time is...

    When Claire Ives was seven months pregnant with her third child, she used a handheld device to listen to her unborn son's heartbeat. As she turned the machine on, she thought something had malfunctioned. "I thought I wasn't listening right or something," Ives, a nurse in London, told ABCNews.com. "I didn't believe his [heart] rate could be that fast." Ives' son had a heart rate of about 300 beats per minute, nearly double the normal 160. After doctors were alerted to the baby's elevated heart rate, Ives delivered her son, Edward Ives, five weeks early via emergency cesarean at the...

You gave birth that morning in an ambulance. The hospital has made wild and conflicting claims about your baby’s health all day long. You are exhausted. You are in pain. Your husband has gone to...
