I did practice. Hospital, nursing home, home
health but ended up in correctional nursing where
I am most comfortable.
And while I do not practice now I still keep up
my continuing education hrs and do enough research
on my own to feel quite comfortable discussing any
and all medical issues.
And right now am successfully running a trucking
company...which I'm learning as I go. lol
Nice... Good luck with the trucking company!

I don't feel comfortable discussing... for instance...Neurology. Although last year I spent 2 1/2 months at the U of Calgary on the neurology floor and learned a lot..enough to know I there is much more to learn. The one thing I did learn is that when it comes to neurology, it's anything can happen day. There are many medical specialties I wouldn't presume to even try to discuss. How nice you feel comfortable discussing any and all medical issues. Your nursing skills must be must be highly sought after. It's a shame a talented nurse like you isn't still working.

No offense but, you must not have been very good at it if they put you in jail.

This subject is a non issue.
There will Never come a time in this country
when a couples rights to procreate will be
infringed upon.

We might as well chat about colonizing Mars.
Would have a better chance at that. lol

Thanks.
R.A. put an early end to my career.
But there are new meds on the market and
many more being studied so never say never.

I'm going to back out of that statement about
Any medical subject b/c I don't like, haven't any
interest in, and didn't learn a great deal extra
about cardiology.

But substance addicted kids is something I really
became increasingly interested in after the alarming
spike in them just in this area alone.
And as much compassion as I feel for a person who
uses drugs/alcohol to numb the pain of an atrocious
past I still can't get past those 1 lb babies born w/
sever mental and physical deformities.
And if that weren't bad enough they have to go through
withdraw and hopefully aren't born w/the death sentence
of HIV.
I think those women forfeit their rights to reproduce.
The law will never go for that....at least I doubt.

.Maybe that's when people will start thinking of 2 children per family?

I was hoping it would never come to that in the USA, but who knows?

[QUOTE who="Nancy Botwin ted text>
WHO DECIDES? Who does the banning and on what criteria? If a "unauthorized" pregnancy does occur...are you for forced abortion? Does the man, who didn't wear a condom, go to jail or be chemically castrated? Do we put pregnant women in jail until the birth occurs then kill the child?
AS you can see, there are many problems with your proposal. If you got your way, how would you handle these problems?
[/QUOTE]

Aw Nancy, you're thinking practically. It's just that some folks can't seem to be bothered with parenting. I don't have all the answers but it seems like some people have kids for the EIC credit, WIC, or other benefits and spend that EIC on a new car/clothes for themselves instead of the kids it's intended for. I don't know the criteria, but I've seen a lot of cases where it just seems they parent(s) shouldn't have bothered to have any. It's for wiser heads than mine to sort this out. I know of a boy whose mom works in construction, left him at home from when he was 10 during the construction season. Family services called, didn't remove the kid, kid's been fending for himself. When she comes home during winter she locks him out of the house, doesn't make sure he's fed, he breaks in abandoned buildings to have somewhere to sleep, again Family Services called and did nothing. Now the kid is 18, got caught breaking, entering, stealing...in jail for a while. What future does this kid have? We have all tried to help, all have tried calling DFS and this kid has been abandoned by everyone, the system, his mom, dad. He was in Job Corps for a month but ran away. It just seems like his mom shouldn't have bothered because what kind of life will he have? The system failed him, his parents failed him and neighbors could only help so much.
