What if your kid went to jail for trying pot, something that is very probable if your kid is black and living in a state like Texas. Does that mean they deserve to be raped? Does that mean that they should live in conditions that go against all human rights?
Most prison rapes are committed by prison staff. Even if you are heartless and do not care about the prisoners, remember that these prison staff rapists go home to their nice houses in the outside world. Remember that they are your neighbors, maybe they even have babysat your children. Remember that as long as some victims are dehumanized and ignored, many perpetrators will never be caught. And yes, these perpetrators do pose a threat to you and your family. Prison rape, rape in general, is everybody’s problem. And definitely not a fucking joke.

Today, even where it is available, some employers may specifically exclude midwife care from their list of covered benefits; insurers may make little effort to include midwives in their networks, since they tend to focus on negotiations with large physician groups.
That is likely to change. The Affordable Care Act added birth centers and midwife care as mandatory Medicaid services, for example. Many health experts are recommending an expanded use of birthing centers as a cost-saving measure as well as in response to women’s demand."
Maude Callen delivered hundreds of babies over 60 years as a nurse midwife in South Carolina. She also provided general health care to her poverty-stricken, mostly black Pineville community.
A spread in LIFE magazine by W. Eugene Smith inspired thousands of dollars in donations to support her work, which she used to build a clinic in Pineville. She served there until her retirement in 1971.
5 Ways To Properly Deliver A Down Syndrome Diagnosis
1. Say “Congratulations,” Not “I’m Sorry”"
One of the residents I did call with told me about this website she had come across that might be of use to me, given my string of patient refusals. The Beautiful Cervix Project describes itself as a grassroots movement celebrating the beauty and intricacies of women’s bodies and fertility.
The centrepiece of the website, that which the resident thought I could use as a resource was the gallery, a small collection of both normal and abnormal cervixes on speculum exam. (Not safe for work)
For the female readers of this blog who might be curious or interested in what it is that we inspect and examine during these exams, you might learn from this website as well.
Or maybe it is just too much information.
I absolutely love this initiative.Source: medicalstate
