A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

How do you say "bullcrap" in Danish?

This just smells;

Frozen embryos better than fresh, study shows

Infants born from embryos which were frozen and then thawed before being implanted into a woman had a higher birth weight and were less likely to suffer abnormalities.

Fewer of the children were also twins or triplets.

Multiple births are known to increase the risk of complications as well as the danger to the mother.

More than 1,200 children born between 1995 and 2006 after frozen embryo replacement (FER) were studied and compared to 17,857 children born from "fresh" embryos.

Freezing embryos allows couples to have several In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment cycles from the same egg collection, reducing the number of times that the ovaries are stimulated.
The eggs are placed in the womb three to five days after ovulation in exactly the same way as fresh embryos.

Multiple births accounted for 27.3 per cent of children born from fresh embryos, compared with 14.2 per cent when frozen embryos were used.

Babies from frozen embryos were on average 200 grams heavier on birth than those from fresh embryos, the findings presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (Eshre) in Barcelona.

The proportion of low birth weight and pre-term FER children was significantly lower.

Dr Anja Pinborg, from the Copenhagen University Hospital Rigshospitalet, who led the study, said: "Most encouragingly, we found no increased risk of congenital malformations in the FER group; the rate in this group was 7.1 per cent compared to 8.8 per cent where fresh embryos had been used.

"We think the reason for the differences is probably positive selection of the embryos for frozen embryo replacement.

"Only the very top quality embryos survive the freezing and thawing process.

"And you only get pregnancies in patients with lots of good embryos to freeze."

(h/t to the Drudge Report)

This strikes me as wrong on a couple of levels. First is the assertion of a higher quality baby from frozen embryos. The War Department has spent some time as a pediatric nurse and on more than one occasion remarked at the high incidence of problems experienced in children that were the result of invitro fertilization. Seems the freezing process may actually damage the embryo. And I always question the truth of studies that seem to help push forward the agenda of the culture of death. For those who think I'm daffy, at one time physicians were doing TV commercials for cigarette companies. There also were some who initially disputed the findings linking smoking to lung cancer. Money talks and I wonder just who funded this study about invitro conceived children?

The second thing that twists my panties up my butt is the implicit attitude of choosing a child like a steak out of the supermarket freezer. Sorry but I look at my children as gifts from God, not the best cuts off the cow.
