Personally, as a grandmother, and a feminist, I don't find it funny. Having a baby is not something that should be made the butt of a joke. What if I was a slashdot reader who had just had a miscarriage?

You are likely a male, and also a moron of the highest caliber. Having sex should not be made the butt of a joke, because someone you know had a heart attack attempting it? Eating tofu should not be made the butt of a joke, because your nephew choked to death on a tofu hot dog?

Happened to me...

Was joking with a lady who had bought a lottery ticket about how, "...it was more likely she would be hit by lightning than win the lottery..."

She glared at me and told me that she HAD been hit by lightning, and how horrible it was, and doctors had told her that it would shorten her lifespan, etc. Really ruined my comedic timing.

In retrospect, I've wondered about the odds of me telling a "being hit by lightning" joke to someone who was actually "hit by lightning." And, I wonder if she won the lottery... :)

The study was performed on fetuses 24 to 36 weeks in gestation. Casual abortion on fetuses of that age is illegal almost everywhere. I don't think this will touch of an abortion debate amongst the mostly male population of Slashdot, who either a) have never had sex, b) will have long since run away from any woman they impregnated by that point, or c) I know this is inconceivable, accepted fatherhood and are preparing for a new geeklet.

Of course on other sites with actual women, they may decry the lack of parasite removal options after the 24th week and use this as some anthropomorphism of the parasite.

Re:You've Touched The 3rd Rail!! (3, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#42068259)

If that were the pro-life stance I might listen to them. However, reailty steps in and they think killing live born babies who have survived an abortion after full term gestation should be allowed. I can't agree with that stance. Obama voted 4 times in IL to continue allowing babies who are born surviving an abortion to be killed. So you may not be in the pro-life camp, but I can assure you are no where near the pro-choice camp at all.

They don't hear it because the republicans (aside from Gingrich who has almost no creditably) don't speak about it. The same can be said about Catholic adoptions agencies that have to shut down in states that have legalized gay marriage.

That story should have been the part of Ryan's response in the VP debate. It should have been advertised to show how extreme Obama's views were.

In fact, I doubt anybody who gets their news from CNN or MSNBC have ever heard of that story but I'm sure they all heard of the idiotic rape comments those two republicans made.

Austerity Empowers (669817) | about a year ago | (#42070943)

So you may not be in the pro-life camp, but I can assure you are no where near the pro-choice camp at all.

Yes. Honestly I don't care about abortion as an issue at all. I consider it a wasteful but necessary solution to human failings. If it were made illegal tomorrow I wouldn't start a protest, I'd hope a funding model was established that didn't involve ME.

On one hand, this is something the anti-Obama/anti-tax/"fiduciary responsibility" folks should have in mind (and why I can't bring myself to vote with them):
- Aborting unwanted children means less children on welfare and medicaid
- Aborting children with detectable birth defects means less children with expensive medical problems on the dole, and less money to spend on special-ed, etc. (I have such a sibling, I can speak to his medical bills and to how effectively his tea-party governor has cut him off in recent years)
- Government enforced abortion of children of parents who are already on some form of welfare or assistance is a solution to a problem that Fox news trolls on about for hours whenever "soshulism" comes up

On the other hand, whenever I hear a pro-choicer rant on:
- If you can't support a child, do not have sex. You fucking idiot. I don't want to hear from a grown adult that not having sex is somehow "too much to ask", we are not dogs, we can control ourselves, if you cannot you need to be locked up.
- If you choose to have sex anyway, and do not want a child, use contraception. You twit. If you still get pregnant, a) legally the father should get hooked in and b) as an adult who is allowed to roam free and participate in society, you have to accept the consequences of your actions. If you cannot accept responsibility for your actions, you need to be locked up, I don't even want to drive on the same road as you.
- At some point killing a child who is out of the womb and breathing stops being abortion, and starts being legal murder. I'm not sure I can be outraged on this, as I have what some might describe as a "sociopathic" viewpoint of right and wrong. I don't think life is magic and I don't think murder is necessarily wrong. I believe in an unwritten contract that we signed on birth, that says we choose to obey laws and police laws to promote the smooth functioning of a society that is undeniably in our best interests. We agree to follow these laws, or be locked up, or to be killed, or to be sent far away and left for dead (this last option isn't possible anymore). Killing your own children (born or unborn) seems to be a self contained concern, so the question is to what degree we would allow it before it becomes a social problem?

Call me cold and heartless if you wish, I'm probably not on an individual basis, but when it comes to running a society the cute cuddly things we all tell each other starts to cost real money and we have to make calculated decisions. I don't approve of abortion at all, but I think it is in our collective best interests for it to be legal.

3.) enjoy videos of yawning fetuses

serviscope_minor (664417) | about a year ago | (#42066723)

They're 2D images of 3D objects.

Nope. Ultrasound gives complete depth measurements. So each time step is an (X,Y,Z) data cube (actually (theta,phy,time)->response ), where response is the magnitude of the received sound in the microphone. Therefore each elenment in the video is therefore the tuple (X, Y, Z, T)->some value, i.e. 4 dimensional.

The video shown is just a projection, but ultrasound gives multiple depth readings, not just a single 2D manifold, so the raw data (obviously not the video here) is certainly 4D data.

So yeah, ultrasound does provide full 4D data and the files are immense.

Re:4D? (3, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#42067293)

Every "imaging system" is practically worthless without the knowledge to interpret the results. Images from say FISH-microscopy are equally incomprehensible to the layperson, though it looks pretty "because color". And only because you might actually know "oh, thats a knee on that x-ray" does not mean you will spot the arthrosis because e.g. the subchondral cysts will only be "blobs and splotches" to you.

Mind you, ultrasound has become really good lately. You wouldn't want to see images from the eighties in comparison to modern ones. And it is a dynamic imaging technique. Print-outs are only for documentation, seldom for interpretation. Every clinician worth his salt that wants to verify or understand the written diagnosis will want to re-sound it to see it first-hand.

2D is the standard slice ultrasound. 3D is the voxel view that shows three-dimensional structure. 4D is just 3D, but with a fast enough computer to update smoothly. Usually 2D is the most use for medical purposes, as a skilled operator can put together the image in their head and see much more internal structure - but for an unskilled viewer, they just look like formless blobs. 3D/4D are most often seen in relation to the abortion debate, where they are the bane of the pro-choice side who can't quite come up with anything to counter the pure emotive imagery of 'Look at the cute baby suck it's thumb!'

I don't think it's considered a breakthrough but I suspect there's a couple important aspects.

I don't believe it's fully known why people yawn, but if babies are yawning in the womb than that could shed some light on the question.

The authors suggest it could be used as an indicator of foetal health, it may not happen enough to be observed reliably, but there's always some value in an additional piece of data.

Not according to liberals. In Chicago a live born baby that managed to survive an abortion is still able to be killed without liability to the mother or doctor. So your statement does not match up with the law in many places.

In case you think that is just a single extremist left-wing single wacko saying so, Obama voted 4 times to keep allowing full birth aborion babies to be killed.

At least ten times that number starve to death yearly. We don't need more people.

Also [citation needed]. Let's take a quick look at your math here. The US has what, 300 million people, half men. Let's assume half of women are sexually active and able to conceive. (So people that are too young / too old / not getting any) That's a total of 75 million people that could potentially have an abortion. That means that every year, one out of every 95 women is having an abortion and requires the assumption that they aren't using any form of birth control. That's frankly ridiculous. Your stats are bad and you should feel bad.

Well, that's quite surprising. Thanks for the link, and FO is decent enough, that's all I did.

I apologize for calling that number ridiculous and saying the GP should feel bad.

It's about time. The little bastards had been getting away with it for too long. Now they've been busted (caught) from every possible angle. Yawning is a gateway to very wicked things. It's time they stop thinking that just because they are in a larval stage, that they can behave like larger humans. Next thing you know, they'll be rolling their eyes and shaking their heads and sighing.

...for the 4D ultrasound for our little guy when he was about 6 months along in July '11. It was a pretty incredible experience. I could tell he was gonna get my nose. And yeah, we saw him yawn - got a still picture of it, and the whole session was recorded to DVD.

Gross.

Looking at an ultrasound of a fetus is on bar with watching brain surgery, as far as hideous and grotesque things that make me recoil.

Of course they yawn. (1)

Have you ever heard a conversation between pregnant women/mothers? I'd like to see the 4D proof of one trying to block its ears.

I'm sitting here with my newborn daughter. And a couple of weeks ago we had this exact same ultrasound done. They handed me a picture that looked just like a single frame of this animation.

And I couldn't help but think, "She looks like an end level boss from DOOM." Is it just me? These ultrasound pictures are somehow profoundly creepy. I could easily imagine something looking like that howling and throwing gigantic missiles at me.

This is what i got from your post.

I suggest you tell her personality is important.

I didn't think this was up for debate? (1)

Four years ago, five months before she was born, I saw my daughter yawn in a 4D sonogram.
