Alabama’s Supreme Court Rules Embryos Are ‘Extrauterine Children’ [Video]

Alabama’s Supreme Court Rules Embryos Are ‘Extrauterine Children’

Alabama’s Supreme Court Rules , Embryos Are ‘Extrauterine Children’. The first-of-its-kind ruling was made on Feb. 16. It "could have widespread implications" for in vitro fertilization (IVF) practices, 'The Guardian' reports. . According to Alabama Dr. Mamie McLean, patients are wondering if they can still safely become parents with IVF. They’re worried about what to do with their frozen embryos. They want to be the ones who make the decisions on how best to utilize their embryos – not the Supreme Court, Dr. Mamie McLean, via 'The Guardian'. Frankly, because of the lack of guidance, we don’t know exactly how this translates to our care, Dr. Mamie McLean, via 'The Guardian'. Since each embryo is now considered a person in Alabama, doctors may have issues freezing, thawing, transferring or testing them, 'The Guardian' reports. . It's also not clear if embryos, which are often produced in excess to provide optimal chances for pregnancy, can ever be disposed of if no longer needed. Sean Tipton, chief advocacy and policy officer for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, called the decision a "nonsensical ruling with devastating consequences.". The court, of course, didn’t deign to deal with the real-world implications of their decision, but they are profound, Sean Tipton, chief advocacy and policy officer for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, via 'The Guardian'. If you’re a physician or an embryologist working in that clinic, you now stand ready to be charged with manslaughter or threatened with a wrongful death suit because one of the embryos didn’t happen to survive the freeze-thaw process, Sean Tipton, chief advocacy and policy officer for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, via 'The Guardian'. Providers may also be forced to transfer multiple embryos to patients, which could result in twins, triplets or more, endangering a patient's health.

This Day in History: Pluto Is Discovered (Sunday, February 18th)

This Day in History: , Pluto Is Discovered. February 18, 1930. Once believed to be the ninth planet, Pluto was discovered at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, AZ, by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh. Tombaugh discovered the tiny dwarf planet using a new astronomic technique of photographic plates combined with a blink microscope. Pluto was given the Roman name for the god of the underworld in Greek mythology due to its surface temperature of -360° F. Nearly four billion miles away from the sun, it takes Pluto approximately 248 years to complete one orbit. . Pluto's only known moon, Charon, has a diameter of a mere 737 miles. In 2006, it was announced that Pluto would no longer be considered a planet because its orbit crosses into the orbit of planet Neptune. While widely referred to as a dwarf planet, many argue that it should still be considered a planet.

Lithium Extraction Project Worries Those Who Rely on Water From Colorado River [Video]

Lithium Extraction Project Worries Those Who Rely on Water From Colorado River

Lithium Extraction Project , Worries Those Who Rely on , Water From Colorado River. Lithium is used to manufacture electric vehicle batteries. A new plan to extract lithium in Utah has raised concerns about how the project could impact the Colorado River, Fox News reports. The Paradox Basin, a geologic formation shared by Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, has been analyzed by an Australian company and its U.S. subsidiaries. The Paradox Basin, a geologic formation shared by Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, has been analyzed by an Australian company and its U.S. subsidiaries. The basin's groundwater has been found to be rich in lithium salts and other minerals left over from millions of years ago when the area was repeatedly flooded and drained. Australia-based Anson Resources has also reportedly acquired rights to freshwater sourced from the nearby Green River. . The company's plans have given rise to questions about how the groundwater and river water are interconnected, in addition to the impact of lithium on the environment. 'The Guardian' points out that the Green River is a tributary of the crucial Colorado River, which supplies water for 40 million people in the West. We need to have a renewable+ energy transition, but maybe we shouldn’t be looking for these kinds of quick-fix energy solutions on a drought-stricken river, Lauren Wood, a third-generation resident of Green River, Utah, via Fox News. Geologists and Earth scientists have cautioned that it remains unclear how water-intensive the process of direct lithium extraction actually is. The technology is too new for much of a commercial track record to have been established, Michael McKibben, professor at the University of California, Riverside, via Fox News. Ultimately, Utah's water rights division will make the final decision regarding water permits for Anson and its U.S. subsidiaries, a process which could take months or years
