Sugar and Spice

Madeline Kara had diabetes. Childhood diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases of children with type 1 diabetes affecting around 1.7 per 1000 Americans and a varying amount for type 2 (because ethnicity and socio-economic status plays a role). I said “had”, because Madeline Kara passed away from a diabetic HONK coma. (Hyperglycaemic …

It’s Against My Religion

It’s Against My Religion to Fund Contraception For My Employees. This doesn’t make you a principled christian. This makes you a tosser. Birth Control is vital to a healthy society. Our society has the things it does because we live in a society where we have created artificial largesse through technology and by artificially controlling …

We Are The Worst Thing On Earth

Sometimes you have people who simply don’t get it. In this case it is Chaz Muth of the Catholic News Service who launches an attack on the Reason Rally and the values of secularism in the USA. And what he doesn’t get mirrors the official party line of the pope. It’s a movement that concerns …

Hail to the King

Apparently the Catholic Church in the USA wants to raise awareness of freedom and wants to spend a fortnight trying to raise awareness and campaign for it. But I wanted to do a bit more poking around so I found the actual letter which the bishops wrote and I don’t think they know what freedom …

A Mugging – Inspired by Project Unbreakable

I was working on this idea for a while before a friend saw a similar idea on Project Unbreakable (Trigger Warnings but Empowering – It is a collection of statements made by rapists to their rape victims) and linked me to it. I decided to combine both of the ideas into one… It’s parody but as always, warnings …

Immaculate Contraception

Apparently I simply missed out on the whole Sandra Fluke deal and am astounded that this is even up for debate. Rush Limbaugh’s insults are just an endemic problem with right wingers and their inability to understand basic human decency. And the internets have responded with both MRAs and conservatives coming out of their way …

The Ninth Commandment

It amazes me how easily some christians breaks the commandments while claiming to be good. I have no qualms about someone who isn’t a “holier than thou” christian not following the more stupid rules of christianity. I have no issues with them. They realise that their faith isn’t perfect and adapt it to fit the …

Back to the Grind

So I am done with exams (finally!) and can get back to regular posts and the like. And this seems like a good time to discuss the whole abortion issue that has raised it’s ugly head. See the problem with abortion is that it’s not a good thing. None of us like abortions, even the …

Ooh another awesome link!

Skeptical OB is a blog written by Dr. Amy and I approve of her message against “home birthing movements”. I understand the need of home birth in India, not everyone has access to medical care in India that includes a trained Ob/Gyn. The options for a large part of India (Majority of India is a rural …

Rights of the Silent majority – Death by a Thousand Cuts

It’s a well known fact that the best form of healthcare is preventative. In medicine there exists the idea of community medicine (an actual field in India) which consists of number crunching and ideas such as immunisation, contraception use, registry of drugs and education. The majority of diseases are preventable by things we take for …
