In America alone, approximately 1.5 million abortions are performed every year. That is about one abortion every twenty seconds, yet nothing is being done to reduce these numbers. Why does the law allow the murders of so many innocent babies to continue? The answer is simple, it shouldn't. Abortion is wrong and should be stopped. This fact is apparent when one sees the suffering that abortion causes, not only to the baby, but to many others as well. All this damage can be so easily avoide

There are so many things that kids dream of after they graduate from high school. For me it was to go to college. I thought that college was going to exactly like high school. Except I wouldn't have to go home to my parents every night. My expectations of college were to party, have easy classes and to hang out with my friends. But when reality set in there is no time to party accept on the weekends, there is no such thing as an easy class and hanging out with my friends is built around all

Registered Nurse/Midwife A certified nurse midwife (CNM) is an individual educated in the two disciplines of nursing and midwifery, who possesses evidence of certification according to the requirements of the American College of Nurse Midwives. State requirements for nurse midwifery must also be met. For centuries women have looked to midwives to advise and assist then in childbirth. Today's certified nurse-midwife carries on this rich tradition. In addition she is also a skilled health prof

According to Nidus Information Services Incorporated, 6.2 million women in the United States are infertile. This problem leads to many options. A few options have been used for a long period of time: the couple could adopt a child or keep trying to have a child themselves. For those couples that want to have their own children, there ar

Support for the Midwifery Profession: Pros and Cons The tradition of midwifery virtually disappeared in Canada during the early part of this century. Several generations of women gave up childbirth at home to the medical profession. They did this in the name of safety and pain relief, or simply because the option of being cared for by a midwife no longer existed. Midwifery should be re-instated as a legal and honourable profession. With healthy pregnancies and under normal conditions

Riddle says how surprised and struck he was by the number of oral contraceptives and abortifacients that were mentioned in the records.

Sex Preselection For many years, mankind has wondered how to choose the sex of a child before its birth for which countless myths, folk remedies, and magic potions have been offered as a solution. None of these methods were based on scientific evidence. However, in recent years gender selection has been made possible through advances such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis using biopsy methods combined with in vitro fertilization and sperm separation using flow cytometry techniques (Reub
