“Our representatives should be forcing companies to label genetically modified foods or better banning them as they are in other countries, but we as people have to our part and make known to our representatives they will not be reflected if they don't, I live in seattle where many of the options you mentioned are readily available, we have great farmers markets , co-ops, ect but many people don't and expecting all people to foster affordable local food from the groun up is exclusionary when many live in food deserts.”

“you make some great points. again though, all of this is really a case of all of us taking responsibility for our own well being. the food desert cycle is the worst, consisting of eating bad food which, in turn, makes you feel awful which, in turn, leads to apathy.  ”

“Um it sounded like she was also attacked...so he wasn't alone”

Brianna Cole on Mar 8, 2013 at 01:37:07

“Ummmmmm.... Because its not possible that she had stepped out of the room momentarily to get a bottle (etc.), heard it go off, run back in to help and was attacked. Oh, AND to keep from getting into trouble, say she was "right there the whole time"? You put too much faith in babysitters. Even just leaving the baby down on the floor with two dogs of any kind and being on the other side of the ROOM is inexcusable. When I say "alone", I don't mean alone in the house. Alone on the floor/ somewhere with easy access with the dogs.”

New Mexico Bill Would Criminalize Abortions After Rape As 'Tampering With Evidence'

Commented Jan 25, 2013 at 01:09:53 in Politics

“The logic is still odd, it's correlation not causation, if you follow the logic and all children were born, especially after the reduction of access to birth control and other abortion alternatives such as the morning after pill, these children would be born.
Again lets consider reality not a happy story of dancing fetus-baby-children, childhood poverty would increase, more children would lack access to adequate nutrition, parents who don't want to be parents would take its toll on everyone, abuse would increase, death, relinquishing of parental rights would increase ( but unlikely funding!) so less oversight in to the foster care system, more social worker mistakes, so more instances of children abused and mistreated by both parents and the system, more suffering...
So how is this not a sin if "god" is punishing us for our sins now how would that change if abortion were suddenly not available? Does god see abusing and neglecting children sometimes leading to death as less of a sin?
No I don't see how they think as a parent and foster parent I think all anti abortion proponents should see what I have and then they might understand how the other side thinks”

“I always think its strange how people believe there choices and circumstances should some how dictate others, for you it was a sad, selfish choice for others perhaps not, as a parent and foster parent how many unwanted children have you taken in, other than mourn your own unhappy choice, how have you worked to make life a gift rather than a burden for the unwanted? Children are abused, mistreated, and unloved and cared for but so many worry about giving life but not quality of life.”

“You responece seems angry, I don't think she did have her daughter evaluated by that dr. She was asked later to comment about the article, she may or may not have seen a dr. My guess is she did, however I think it probably wasn't the type of investigation the above poster was asking about, but based on her history an md probably recommended a diet, I think the authors comments weren't about how the mother administered the program but the spirit of her”

“I think too, her daughter was seen by a doctor. A parent that concerned (it could not have been easy to be that strict) would have checked for reasons for the weight. Thought I could not find an answer in anything published.”

“I am glad you have had a positive experience, but I think it's sad you assume that all adoptees must or should think and feel as you do or that she is somehow lacking in maturity because of how she feels and should change.”

Jancuisine on Jan 14, 2013 at 03:38:08

“My experience has been all positive or all negative. For some reason, people always assume one or the other. Adoption is complex. I don't think they should think or feel as I do, but every one I've met who found their biological family has felt more peace in knowing. Doesn't mean there was a happy ending, but they at least know all sides of their identity. I just want fellow adoptees to have peace.”

“As a parent and former foster parent, I understand, why it might be hard and scary to look at a child you love dearly but find so challenging and stressful and think, how could someone who doesn't love them do better?be more patient? what if they hurt them or abused them, what if it went on and on... I have heard stories, I think the idea of your child being molested, or abused, starved, beaten, all real risks and I cannot imagine placing my own child in foster care, we fost parented because we knew we could offer what many children don't get, safety, kindness, humanity, however I have never been desperate and resource less situation, no I don't think her actions were acceptable, but in a sad twisted way perhaps she felt she was acting in his interest, she needed more tools and resources, more support”

agb1953 on Dec 29, 2012 at 12:56:35

“Well she wasn't acting in the child's interest when she drowned him. Parents have come home from religious revival meetings and slit their children's throats to "send them to god" because they thought they would be saving the kids from life's sufferings. Well, I don't care what anybody thinks or why, slaughtering a child is wrong, and I don't have to try and "understand" what this mother was thinking.”

“It's so nice to see you have empathy for this condition but as you don't sound like its something you are familiar with let me say with HG natural homeopathic remedies are only mildly helpful at best, for me they exaserbated my symptoms. it is a hormonal condition caused in 1-2% of pregnancies, I can only speak for myself to say that I tried everything natural and consulted with a homeopathic dr. Aromatherapy was terrible like ammonia, ginger or other eatible remedies were no help and made my throat and mouth sore, from them comming back up. The only relief came from anti nausea drugs usually used for cancer patients., when I could keep them down. HG causes for some severe vomiting, dry heaving,12-25 times a day everything even water, dehydration, so the symptoms of that like headache, dizziness, etc, weakness, feeling sea sick all the time, I had nose bleeds, my throat bleed, broke blood vessels in my eyes, fainted, had dry itchy skin, aches, it is terrible. Ivs, feeding tubes, are treatments not tea, I am not trying to criticize, natural remedies can be great for morning sickness but this is not morning sickness. I will say in my case my kids are fine and were normal weight but I had to do a lot of recovery for low iron, potassium, ect after and strength training, it was worth it in the end but there is no easy fix”

“I see what your saying but you should look at one huge flaw in what your reasoning you and your friends would love to adopt, that is why you don't like abortion? Well why haven't you? I am not saying you should have but you haven't what consolation is that to the THOUSANDS of children in foster care? Many are abused or mistreated we need more kids so people can wish they cared for them? That makes no sense. I feel for your pain of wishing you had a child but what of the choice less children who suffer? Children are not cared for due to lack of availability, there are plenty of them, we need more willing parents.”

“We all know what she did was wrong. However the why is important, her young brain was probably filled for months with fears and anxiety, humans have strange responses to that, look at fearful soldiers in dangerous situations who shoot innocent civilians because there fear and anxiety is up, we treat them, yes I know it's different, they are trained adult men in actual danger but to a child perception is reality, also many people distance them selves mentally in duress, she may have been so devastated her only coping mechanism was to block out they humanity of her child, I am not saying that is the case but it could be, it's easy to say she is a monster but humans children are more complex, most of us are not murders but we could and do kill police, soldiers, even homeowners killing doesn't make a person evil it is why, they kill. Also abortion doesn't cheapen human life it is the humanity we give to others that gauges the value of life, more children are murdered or mistreated when society dictates birth than when abortion is a legitimate option.”

“Your opinion is to be respected. Although quite honenstly the days of muitual respect went away sadly, years ago. Let me rephrase. I think that someone wiser, whether or not a Dr would be very helpful in many cases. People don't think before they react. Now in your case you knew what your thoughts were. Of course when you write a post on a contoversial subject you get so many mean spirited replies from people flying off the handle and never giving thought to their response. I'm surprised someone hasn't invented a viral bomb yet and bown me away..Ha HA”
