Why Universal Electronic Medical Records Are BAD!

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center said Monday that bits and pieces of information, including 10 Social Security numbers, from about 6,800 patients had been inadvertently disclosed on the Internet.

The institutions said in a written statement that the information was mistakenly placed on a server from which it became public. Myrna Manners, a spokeswoman for the hospital, said it appeared that someone internally had made a mistake, and that there was no criminal wrongdoing.

Judges Get Their Comeuppance

The most important decision the voters made on November 2 may turn out to be Iowa sending out to pasture three state supreme court judges who had voted to make same-sex marriage constitutional, overriding the wishes of the people in Iowa and their elected representatives. The reverberations are cascading nationwide, and we hope this landmark election signals the beginning of the end of rule by arrogant supremacist judges.

EGGsplotation - The Darkside of the Infertility Industry

To the infertility industry, eggs spell enormous profit. The natural monthly rhythm of a woman's cycle is far too inefficient to satisfy the industry's voracious appetite. Consequently, egg donors are in hot demand. Infertility programs and their egg brokers place ads targeting young, healthy, college-aged women, characteristically altruistic, and short of cash, promising up to $50,000 in exchange for a carton of fresh eggs. A few weeks is all it takes. The risks are played down and the benefits seem obvious.

High dosages of fertility drugs, synthetic hormones called gonadotropins, are administered to superovulate the donor to produce eggs. Soreness, breast tenderness, mood swings, headaches and mild fluid retention can be anticipated. But over-hyperstimulation (called "ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome," or OHSS) is also possible. Should a donor be so unlucky, she might suffer excruciating abdominal pain, blood clots, infections, kidney failure, loss of her ovaries, shock, and, in rare cases, death. Oh, by the way, don't neglect to read the fine print: If because of complications a donor fails to deliver a full carton, jackpot's off. After all, a deal's a deal.

Founded in 1996, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) is a national nonprofit organization focused on supporting the Palestinians in the Mideast conflict through targeted sanctions against Israel – designed to punish the Jewish state for its alleged human-rights violations. According to its mission statement, JVP is “inspired by Jewish tradition to work ... for peace, social justice, equality, human rights, [and] respect for international law.” Indispensable to the realization of these ideals, says JVP, is the group's primary objective: “an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.” While claiming to support “security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians” alike, JVP aims the vast majority of its criticism at Israel. Impugning also the U.S. for the “critical role” it has played in the Arab-Israeli conflict over the years, JVP calls on America to "stop supporting repressive policies in Israel and elsewhere."

Poverty tightens its grip on America. The U.S. Census Bureau reports poverty increased to 14.3 percent during 2009 from 13.2 percent the previous year. The percentage of Americans living in poverty is the highest level since 1994.

The Census Bureau reports one in seven Americans or 43.6 million people lived
in poverty during 2009, up from 39.8 million during 2008. The poverty threshold
for a family of four during 2009 was set at $21,954 by the federal government.
So what are the solutions? Certainly, more jobs and more Americans staying in
school and finishing their education come to mind.

How about strengthening families and the institution of marriage? Marriage is
directly linked to poverty. A new study by the Heritage Foundation calls marriage
America’s number one weapon against childhood poverty.
