Outsourcing Pregnancies To India….

ANAND, India (AP) – Every night in this quiet western Indian city, 15 pregnant women prepare for sleep in the spacious house they share, ascending the stairs in a procession of ballooned bellies, to bedrooms that become a landscape of soft hills.
A team of maids, cooks and doctors looks after the women, whose pregnancies would be unusual anywhere else but are common here. The young mothers of Anand, a place famous for its milk, are pregnant with the children of infertile couples from around the world.
The small clinic at Kaival Hospital matches infertile couples with local women, cares for the women during pregnancy and delivery, and counsels them afterward. Anand’s surrogate mothers, pioneers in the growing field of outsourced pregnancies, have given birth to roughly 40 babies.More than 50 women in this city are now pregnant with the children of couples from the United States, Taiwan, Britain and beyond. The women earn more than many would make in 15 years. But the program raises a host of uncomfortable questions that touch on morals and modern science, exploitation and globalization, and that most natural of desires: to have a family.

Dr. Nayna Patel, the woman behind Anand’s baby boom, defends her work as meaningful for everyone involved.

“There is this one woman who desperately needs a baby and cannot have her own child without the help of a surrogate. And at the other end there is this woman who badly wants to help her (own) family,” Patel said. “If this female wants to help the other one … why not allow that? … It’s not for any bad cause. They’re helping one another to have a new life in this world.”

Experts say commercial surrogacy—or what has been called “wombs for rent”—is growing in India. While no reliable numbers track such pregnancies nationwide, doctors work with surrogates in virtually every major city. The women are impregnated in-vitro with the egg and sperm of couples unable to conceive on their own.

Commercial surrogacy has been legal in India since 2002, as it is in many other countries, including the United States. But India is the leader in making it a viable industry rather than a rare fertility treatment. Experts say it could take off for the same reasons outsourcing in other industries has been successful: a wide labor pool working for relatively low rates.

Critics say the couples are exploiting poor women in India—a country with an alarmingly high maternal death rate—by hiring them at a cut- rate cost to undergo the hardship, pain and risks of labor.

“It raises the factor of baby farms in developing countries,” said Dr. John Lantos of the Center for Practical Bioethics in Kansas City, Mo. “It comes down to questions of voluntariness and risk.”

Don’t Let This Happen To You

There was a story of interest in the Herald Sun today (no link), about a drop bear attack. Here’s an extract:

Melissa Kerrin, 15, was on a school camping trip at Mt. Macedon National Park when she encountered one of Australia’s most vicious creatures. The year 10 student, a native of the United States, was attacked by a drop bear (koalus ataqus) while hiking along a bush trail in the National Park.

Drop bears are a common species in Australia, and live mostly in gum and eucalypt trees in the eastern States, and are most prevalent in Tasmania. They look remarkably similar to the koala, although their claws, used for climbing trees and attacking prey, are larger, and they have two large fangs, used to hold their prey while excising flesh with a row of smaller, more jagged fangs behind the two larger ones.

Ms. Kerrin’s guardian and school teacher, Mr. Peter Healey, told this reporter that “We just didn’t know what was happening. First, we were walking, and then suddenly there was a flash of gray, a scream, and it was all over. Mel was on the ground, unconscious, and it wasn’t until the park ranger saw the wounds that we knew what had happened. We had to carefully carry Mel back to the ranger station and call an ambulance.”

According to Mr. Healey, the park ranger, Michael Porter, then organized a search team led by Aboriginal tracker Marjoria Toowombat, to track down the dangerous animal before any other casualties occur. Mr. Porter reportedly then tried some of the traditional bush healing techniques to tend to Ms. Kerrin’s injuries, without success.

Parks Victoria released an official statement early this morning, in which they stated “The ranger at the scene responded to the incident in accordance with the official guidelines, including the use of the animal tracking team. We regret that this incident has occurred, and wish Ms. Kerrin a speedy recovery.”

Ms. Kerrin’s parents are reportedly on their way to Australia to be with their daughter, who is in the Alfred Hospital in a serious condition. She was unable to be reached for comment.

Dangerous little fuckers, those drop bears. Don’t mess with them.

New Years Greetings from Kae!

Pakistan says al Qaeda behind Bhutto killing…Well come on AND???

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistan has “intelligence intercepts” indicating that al Qaeda was behind the killing of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, the Interior Ministry said on Friday.

“We have intelligence intercepts indicating that al Qaeda leader Baitullah Mehsud is behind her assassination,” ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema told a news conference.

Mehsud is one of Pakistan’s most wanted militant leaders and is based in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border.


LIKE, the Taliban AND the ISI??? Come clean…Wait, you CAN’T come clean. The blood on your hands will not wash off.

New Years!

Alright, here’s the deal. Every year for the past eight years, I’ve listened to this song as the clock has past midnight.

Clearly, it hasn’t worked for me.

Any suggestions what to try?

The History of Egg Nog

You know, there’s nothing quite like Egg Nog. (well, with an additive)….But even for those who don’t partake in “additives”, there is a lovely essence about it. Typical “additive” is rum..I like mine with 100 proof Southern Comfort

Should you want…click on Southern Comfort they have the history behind it AND a great interactive recipe book, that one may download.

In the meantime, back to my wonderful Comfort Egg Nog …OH and Merry Christmas to all.

What does 2008 hold?

News Corp has released a list of it’s predictions for headlines in 2008.

I’m not one to be outdone by a huge company that could buy and sell me many times over, so here are my own.

January 2008

Australia begins it’s commitment to the Kyoto Protocol, and Ash celebrates by turning the air conditioner down to a lower temperature. Merely so the freezer doesn’t have to expend as much energy to keep the steak frozen, of course.

Andrew Bolt returns from holidays, and realises he didn’t really miss the moonbats that infest his blog as much as he thought he did. Except for the utterly hilarious, utterly clueless ones, anyway.

Ash celebrates her 22nd birthday by taking her daughter to the babysitter’s, then going out for a steak dinner with her closest friends. Halfway through the meal, her friends feel sick after watching Ash eat three ribeye steaks with garlic sauce, and before the party all leaves, Ash gets the restaurant to put the other three in doggie bags “for later use”.

The Dhimmification Continues


sadly, europe, the uk, the usa, and oz still have too few voices crying foul.  i blame the msm and the aclu for not looking beyond their noses.  why do i blame them and not the “people”?  because the “people”, for the most part, still get most of their information from the msm, and unfortunately, still trust the source.

(and one day i will learn how to make the links pretty)

A Desert Tale

Off in the desert of Afghanistan, a Taliban leader is fleeing from the US soldiers. He’s in the middle of the desert, and is going crazy from thirst. In the distance, he sees something, but doesn’t quite know what it is. When he reaches it, he finds an elderly Jewish man selling fine silk ties.

The Taliban fuckhead asks the man “Do you have any water? I’m very thirsty!”, to which the elderly man answers “No, I do not. I only have ties to sell. Would you like one? They are only $50.” The Taliban fuckhead looks at the elderly man and says “I don’t need a tie. I need water!” The elderly man looks somewhat thoughtful and says “I know you don’t like me and would much rather I was dead, but after a two hour walk that way, you should come across a restaurant, with the finest water, sparkling and cool.”

The Taliban fuckhead starts walking. Four hours later he returns and says, with a glare to the Jewish man, “Your infidel brother won’t let me in without a tie!”

“He’s really lovely!”

DAVID Hicks described Osama bin Laden as “lovely” and trained with al-Qaeda a month before the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a court was told.Australian Federal Police (AFP) also told a court in Adelaide today that Hicks could still be seen as a perceived threat to Australia.

Yeah, I’m sure bin Laden’s a great guy. So was McVeigh, and what’s this slander I’ve been hearing about Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Hussein? I’m sure they were really friendly blokes too.

Hicks is a scumbag.

He’ll always be a threat to Australia.
