Vasectomy news

2009-03-21 23:07:20.633635+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I was searching for an article on vasectomy rates being up with the economy down:

"We were doing 40 to 45 a week, and then it went to 70 to 75 each week," he said. "Some patients were concerned about losing their insurance, but it seems to me more of it is the idea of 'I can't commit myself to raising another child in uncertain times.' "

But ran across various news that Rep. Karen Camper, D-Memphis, wanted to insert "nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to vasectomy" into the state constitution, in a bill that meant to add language like that about abortion. Good on yer, Ms. Camper.

And on that note, when are we going to drop gender from our honorifics?

And stem cells and right to die and...

Yeah, disagree with 'em on the financing of health care, but generally they seem to be more about freedom to make personal medical decisions.
