Reproduction without sex,
a liberating future

CNN, by Aarathi Prasad

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 12/21/2012 6:44:39 AM

Last year on the 50th anniversary of the creation of the contraceptive pill its inventor Carl Djerassi spoke of the coming dramatic changes to reproductive options -- of the technologies that will have just as big an impact on society in the 50 years to come. After sex without reproduction, reproduction without sex. In an article in the UK´s "traditional values" tabloid, the Daily Mail, titled "A Terrifying Future for Female Fertility," Djerassi said, "There are an enormous number of well-educated, proficient women who, when facing the biological clock, first pay attention to their professional ambitions...

Maybe this will be the means by which one third of mankind will die (Rev 9:18). We´ve already murdered most of two generations. Liberating? Hardly!

To each his own. I´ll stick with the old way, thanks. The science described in the article makes reproduction sound about as sexy as a root canal.

Reproduction without sex?

I know at least one wife who might go for it...

Is there no limits? This is the ultimate dehumanization of the human species. Reproduction with humans. How vile and how dull.

They have proven that children produced asexually are often sickly and slow.
It just proves the old adage "Spare the rod, spoil the child".

Another mere human´s effort to kick God. He created a beautiful world that sinful man has adulterated into a cesspool. This Prasad guy (?) is thrilled that sex (created by God) for procreation and pleasure (for a married couple, man and woman) is being replaced by science. Truly a reprobate.

Nor just technology, but politics too. Freezing eggs and sperm. Do-able. Sterilization... why? And after sterilization one´s genetic heritage is stored outside one´s own body under the control of strangers. And why would men volunteer to be sterilized, given their longer span of sperm production?
Maybe more politics than technology here.

So, are females a misbegotten breed? Are our bodies basically, finally, not in our own best interest?

No way.

Our human design is a wonder, not a curse. Our sexual design in particular, (with its pleasurability and its fertility and its
bond-ability) is not sick. We don´t need to be "´cured" of it.

It’s OK to be a woman. We don´t need to be "fixed."

You can reorganize the government and restructure the university; you can retool the economy and redesign society. But human beings as such -- in our minds, our souls, our bodies, ourselves -- are not to be redesigned.

We must either perfect our wholeness, or repudiate it. If we repudiate it, there is little to prevent us from erasing
ourselves finally, erasing our humanity, function by function, line by line.

But if we perfect our wholeness, we will do
something far better. We will hold up before the eyes of the world the image and likeness of God.

Since the 70´s, in vitro fertilization has become common. There is no evidence--none--that these children are any different from children conceived the "old fashioned" way. Reproduction without sex doesn´t mean people won´t have sex. It is just a way for people who otherwise couldn´t have children to have them. What is wrong with that? There still has to be a woman involved (take note, gay couples).

Oh, the gays are the biggest cheerleaders for this. Gay men from Germany, the UK and the USA use their own sperm, get ova from clinically superovulated white college girls, and debark as "reproductive tourists" in India and Guatemala, where they rent a native reproductive concubine at the "clinic," put it all together via a considerable amount of cash, and eventually walk off with newborn babies. Congratulations, Jason and Kurt!

Like a combination of a slave auction and a science project, it´s breeding and trading in human flesh.

You´ve come a long way, baby.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the
Titanic’s New Captain
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/14/2014 7:08:54 AM     Post Reply
The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

No, The Obamacare Debate
Isn’t Over
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/7/2014 7:03:29 AM     Post Reply
Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

Hobby Lobby Has Its

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Mayor de Blasio took great pride Thursday in signing the first piece of legislation of his mayoralty: the paid-sick-leave bill. But the move only illustrates why a personal-finance Web site has just ranked the city one of the worst places for finding a job. Under the new law, come April 1 companies with as few as five workers must offer at least five paid sick days a year. But April 1 is likely to turn out to be April Fool’s for New York workers. Because the consequence of this law is likely to be .?.?. fewer jobs. Businesses that can’t afford to

Ben Carson: White House wanted

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
