In his case, that single egg shouldn't have been fertilized.

Nothing better than people who have no experience in science whatsoever legislating scientific procedures...

'Asshat' doesn't come close to doing this waste of blood justice.

Where's the "Kentucky" tag? This alone might justify one.

Only if they are fraternal twins.

But seriously, the bill is explicitly limited to in vitro fertilization.

Does anyone have a nicely condensed version of the reasoning behind this? I hope it is not one of those "the soul magically attaches when sperm meets egg" deals, but it probably is.

I don't know why these people claim evolution hasn't found the missing link.

Wouldn't killing off any other IVF'd egg constitute abortion?

How does that fit with his plan?

Remember what happened last time a majority of people living in America didn't approve of the way they were being governed?

This is a country FOUNDED on revolution.

The next one will be within our lifetimes. Be prepared.

Yeah, but THEY have all the good weapons, and intelligence.
Not to mention control of the media.

I call shenanigans. There's no way anyone holding public office in Kentucky even understands what a legal precedent is, much less how to set one.

I've never been to Kentucky. Been to many of the states, but not that one.

..oh another stupid law..is this such a HUGE problem that we need to spend the money debating the need for a new law.

Or is this guy grandstanding to his God?

GaryPDX: what the hell?

It probably has something to due with anti-stem cell research thinking.

I'd love to see a rational defense of this bill.

Another denver farker. But remember, because my name is smokeymcpot, I may have differnt values than you (God forbid). I'm ready to defend my country from any harm. Wonder if the revolution is coming soon.

But I digress. They have the intelligence and better weapons as someone else said. Better to save and move away to a better part of the world. Still looking for that though.

We really don't need a Kentucky tag as FARK is a product of that state. By default everything that is posted here is a testament to the bluegrass state.

Hey, what's the big deal? So what if someone has 10 children born to them that are all between 6 ounces and 2 pounds? So what if each of them requires intensive care that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars? So what if the total cost is upwards of a few million dollars?



Excuse me, mister, could you spare about 35 cents to help keep me from dying of diarrhea or influenza? No? I didn't think so.

At least they have HB146 to go along with this, which aims to limit the amount you can recover in a medical malpractice lawsuit. That way when your doctor can't get you pregnant thanks to HB145, you won't be able to sue him for very much.

This probably has something to do with "selective reduction."
 
2005-05-13 08:28:59 PM
The thing about in vitro is that they fertilize multiple eggs to increase the chance of success. It's an expensive procedure, and couples obviously want to give it their best shot. But as you might imagine, as there is the potential for some fertilized eggs to be terminated, this procedure is a problem for the "life begins at conception" gang. Myself, I realize that a significant proportion of fertilized eggs get flushed out of the womb by natural processes when couples attempt to conceive normally, so the idea of a fertilized egg being destroyed ("killed?") by a lab rather than by bad luck or bad genes doesn't really bother me morally.

But that's just me...
 
2005-05-13 08:29:24 PM
Nice "facts" Brockway. Way to prove you don't know how the process works either.

Dear Red States:

Could you try to be a bit more hush-hush about your REALLY stupid practices? You're embarassing us in front of the other countries.
 
2005-05-13 08:34:30 PM
Yes, instead of doing life-saving and beneficial stem-cell research on in-vitro embryos, let's use aborted fetuses instead! YEAAAAAAHOOOOO!

I love Kentucky. Home of the most fantastic mullets you will ever see.

I have a couple of neighbors that could benefit from "selective reduction".

Births from IVF numbering more than 2 per inoculation are rare, and have gone down as the viability per fertilization rate has gone up (because they need inject fewer). In other words, STFU; you don't understand how it works, so quit your biatching.
 
2005-05-13 08:36:46 PM
Brockway: Good intentioned point, but you are wrong. The multiple births are more a result of fertility drugs...NOT in-vitro fertilization.

Second...this guy is stupid. In-vitro fertilization is actually one of many different methods that can involve fertlizing more than one egg. Did he do ANY research when drafting this pile of legislative dung, or did the bible tell him to do it?

2005-05-13 08:38:23 PM
People are upset by this but at least it's a "pro-lifer" being consistent for once. If you believe that human life begins at conception, then IVF is destroying FAR more human lives than abortion could ever hope to. Pro-lifers who campaign against abortion but are silent on IVF are extremely hypocritical.
 
2005-05-13 08:38:31 PM
It's about damned time religious fundies realized that invitro fertilization is the equivalent of multiple abortions at one time when they die in the lab and took action... rather than their typical hypocritical, "well if a baby is prodiced killing zygotes is ok! but if a baby isn't produced eventually killing zygotes is murder! Murder!"

Oh wait... I forgot... the pro-life movement isn't about saving fertilized eggs (which they consider "babies" for some strange reason), it's about punishing women for having a healthy sex drive.

Lonnie Napier's bill may well pass in 2006, but they failed to approve one this year that would have forced them to remain in session WITHOUT PAY until they pass a state budget.
