Tebow Super Bowl Ad Controversy Proves “Pro-abortion” not “Pro-choice”

Sarah Palin has written a note on her Facebook page on the move to oppose an ad that’s scheduled to be run during the Super Bowl. The active opposition to the ad by the National Organization for Women (incorrectly named, btw) and other groups, shows just how pro-abortion, rather than pro-choice, they are. The 30 … Continue reading

Qualify for government subsidy: become a(n involuntary) unionized government employee

Next up: doctors, section 8 housing owners, ????? Grocery stores, drug stores??? A year ago in December, Ms. Berry and more than 40,000 other home-based day care providers statewide were suddenly informed they were members of Child Care Providers Together Michigan—a union created in 2006 by the United Auto Workers and the American Federation of … Continue reading

LifeEthics quoted about Doctors for America posts

I’ve been a little distracted, getting my house ready for the New Braunfels Republican Women’s Christmas Tour of Homes, but I should be blogging more in the future. Found a post at “RBO,” (RealBarackObama) that quoted my reports (here and here) on the conference call with “Doctors for America,” back in September. I like being … Continue reading

No self breast exams?

The recommendation *not* to teach exams throws the whole report into question for me. If we are changing the frequency of mammograms, should we also change the recommendation to do self exams? Won’t the first change the effectiveness of the second? In the news, the report by the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality. … Continue reading

Intentionally Skewed Cancer Survival Rates

From Ann Coulter’s latest report on Health Care Reform Myths: European women are only 55.8 percent likely to live five years after contracting any kind of cancer, compared to 62.9 percent for American women. In five cancers — breast, prostate, thyroid, testicular and skin melanoma — American survival rates are higher than 90 percent. Europeans … Continue reading

Politics bites science

For a clear outline as to why you shouldn’t believe that 45,000 people die each year because they don’t have insurance, read the blog entry by John Milloy, publisher of “Junk Science” on last week’s report in the American Journal of Public Health. Forget that the authors are blatantly biased members of the “Physicians for … Continue reading

Follow up from Doctors for America

Received this message a few minutes ago. The only people who kept bringing up “what physicians can be doing now to ensure that Congress pushes forward to create meaningful health reform” were the same guys who made sure that the rest of us were on “listen-in” mode only. Still no mention about the close connections … Continue reading

Playing doctor with the White House

Who’s playing doctor with the White House: Another example of the lack of openness in the dealings of the Obama Administration (Informed consent blurb: Organizing for America, etc., along with all the White House websites, are collecting data including email and other information from everyone who visits or contacts their sites. I got a couple … Continue reading

>Global Warming Ate the Science

>The next time you hear about anthropogenic global warming or global climate change, demand to see the data. It no longer exists. I’ve been a skeptic all along, because I remember the warnings about the “coming ice age,” that I read in my “Weekly Reader,” back in grade school. (In the dark ages of the … Continue reading

Forget conscience – go straight to mandate

Human Events has an editorial from Christian Medical And Dental Association’s Jonathan Imbody. Here’s an excerpt: A national poll showed that Americans favored the “conscience clause” regulation and the civil rights laws it enforced by a two-to-one margin. During a 30-day public comment period, an astounding 340,000 comments and petitions poured in favoring the regulation. … Continue reading
