Georgia Democrats Introduce Anti-Vasectomy Bill | Romney Plummets With Women | Virginia Tables Personhood Bill

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

The new Republican term for blogs like AOC is “elite media”. Slate writes that Santorum is incredibly angry that the “elite media” is dogging him because of his conservative religious views. The Republican candidate pulls out the stops with one appalling assertion after another — from the Devil attacking America to why he’s opposed to birth control but chooses not to talk about his manufacturing proposals on ‘Face the Nation’. Duh?

Today was the first time we read that Santorum wants creationism taught in America’s classrooms, as an alternative to the scientific theory of evolution. Pushing intelligent design in classrooms was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge in 2005, based on a lack of scientific evidence for the theory.

Santorum insisted just days ago that President Obama’s policy decisions aren’t based on Biblical principles. It’s Santorum who promotes a theocracy for America and then criticizes journalists for asking questions about an agenda never openly discussed in a presidential election race.

The Vatican accepts the scientific theory of evolution and the big bang theory. The basic difference between atheists and the Vatican is that the pontiff believes God causes the big bang. Read details of “Scientific Insights into the Evolution of the Universe and of Life,” put on by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in 2008.

In response to a new abortion bill in Georgia that would punish procedures performed after the 20th week of pregnancy with prison sentences of between one and 10 years, Georgia Democrats introduced a new bill that will outlaw vasectomies in Georgia, a procedure that leaves “thousands of children … deprived of birth.”

Rep Yasmin Neal, a Democrat from Jonesboro, a suburb of Atlanta, introduced HB 1116, outlawing vasectomies unless needed to avert serious injury or death. via CNN

Virginia Ultrasound & Personhood Update

Virginia Republicans have sent their personhood bill back to committee, effectively taking it off the legislative agenda for this year. It hasn’t died, just gone lurking to the back burner until the pressure is off. The Virginia legislature did pass a bill today requiring an external ultrasound, not the ‘transvaginal’ procedure Governor McDonnell supported.

How much harm has been done to the Governor’s political aspirations remains unclear. All polls show that women are turning against Republicans faster than the data can be polled.

Catholic Bishops Crack Down on 28% of Women Having Sterilizations After Child Birth | Anti-Dementia Foods

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Trust a woman to bring some pragmatic discussion to the national debate on contraceptive coverage. Writing for TIME, Erika Christakis reminds the nation that taxpayers spend more than $11 billion each year (in 2001 dollars) on costs resulting from unintended pregnancy. That number includes only public insurance costs and not the larger financial burdens of bringing up unwanted children.

Before the nation cuts back on access to birth control as the Catholic bishops demand and candidates like Republican frontrunner Rick Santorum advocate, about half of all pregnancies in America are unintended, says the Guttmacher Institute. By age 45, more than 40% of all American women will have had at least one abortion, a rate twice that of countries in Europe with more liberal abortion laws and widely available contraception.

Knowing that more than half of births to women under 30 now occur outside of marriage — a condition many would like to change for both mother and children, how can Catholic bishops and Republican leaders propose moving against available contraception as outlined by President Obama in his compromise to religious leaders?

To suggest — as the Senate Blount bill proposes — that any moral offence is justification for refusing health care coverage for an employer puts individual employers in charge of employee health care.

And if you believe that sterilizations just might be the answer to end this insanity, the Philadelphia Inquirer writes an in-depth piece that Catholic bishops in the US are also cracking down on sterilzation at the woman’s request — having one’s tubes tied after the birth of a child — denouncing is as “coercive,” “insulting,” “unconstitutional,” “beligerent” and “dangerous.”

Avoiding Dementia

Psychology Today reminds us in ‘How to Save Your Brain’ that fighting dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in older age is heavily impacted by lifestyle decisions throughout our entire life.

Scientists attribute the debilitating disorder to the gradual accumulation between brain cells of a toxic protein, beta-amyloid, that blocks the transmission of information from cell to cell, wipes out synapses, and disrupts basic neuron function, leading to cell death. Inflammatory processes are also involved in memory loss.

The same lifestyle choices that lead people to obesity and heart disease also increase the likelihood that one will suffer from dementia. Every food choice that we make in life can impact our brains later on. Anti-inflammatory foods that work as deterrents to dementia include:

1. Dark chocolate with low sugar but high cocoa content

2. Red wine

3. Clams and other seafood rich in B12

4. Asparagus

5. Wild salmon and other oily fish

6. Walnuts high in omega-6

7. Cherries and blueberries, raspberries and strawberries

8. Tumeric which contains curcumin; ginger is a close cousin

9. Apple for quercetin; capers and red onion are also excellent sources
