Nebraska's "Safe Haven" Law Backfires

Posted by Pile (5407 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Bad Parents]
Nebraska's safe haven law was intended to allow parents to hand over an infant anonymously to a hospital without being prosecuted, presumably as a way to be "pro life" and discourage abortions.

Unfortunately things didn't work out the way lawmakers planned. Of the 34 children who have been dropped off at hospitals, officials said, not one has been an infant.

All but six have been older than 10, according to a Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services analysis. Now lawmakers are rushing to change the law while parents are rushing to Nebraska to drop their kids off before the law changes.

We've all heard it before. A politician leaves office with the announcement that they want to spend more time with the family.

In the case of Missouri Republican Scott Muschany, this apparently means so he can rape his mistresses' 14-year old daughter. Go GOP! You guys never cease to amaze the rest of us with your feats of sexual deviancy!

They took everything from their parents and gave nothing to their kids but problems.

The entire country went down the drain on their watch.

Now they demand more money from the government (US) so they can keep going to Biloxi to piss it into slot machines.

Instead, they should each get an itemized bill.

A man who gave everything he had in his will to the UK's Conservative Party was crazy. And I don't mean that he was crazy to give all of his worldly goods to conservatives, although I certainly would like to. No, this guy was totally f*cking nuts.

The soldier son of talk radio relationship counselor Laura Schlessinger is under investigation for a graphic personal Web page that one Army official has called "repulsive."

The MySpace page, publicly available until Friday when it disappeared from the Internet, included cartoon depictions of rape, murder, torture, and child molestation; photographs of soldiers with guns in their mouths; a photograph of a bound and blindfolded detainee captioned "My Sweet Little Habib;" accounts of illicit drug use; and a blog entry headlined by a series of obscenities and racial epithets.

The site is credited to and includes many photographs of Deryk Schlessinger, the 21-year-old son of the talk radio personality known simply as Dr. Laura.

It can be a heartbreaking situation, or a life-changing one: a woman who has had trouble conceiving seeks in-vitro fertilization. At the cost of thousands of dollars a pop, eggs and sperm are harvested and merged, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the hopeful woman's uterus, in the hope that they will implant and the happy couple will become pregnant.

But is there any way to increase the woman's chances of conceiving? A new study suggests that there may be such a method--clowns.

I had to create a new category just for this story it got me so worked up.

Florence Cohen, 85, of New York, upset that she bought the video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for her 14-year-old grandson without knowing it contained hidden, sexually explicit scenes sued the manufacturer Wednesday on behalf of consumers nationwide.

Never mind that the game depicts prostitution, murder, cop-killing, rampant violence, illegality and anarchy in urban streets. This irresponsible parental figure got the game for her grandson and only got upset when it was discovered that there was nudity within? Nudity that couldn't be accessed without major modifications to the game?
