Life Links 1/15/13

There are some unforeseen effects of having a one-child policy and have a generation of people grow up without siblings.
One particular game focused on trust. The first player was given a sum of money, and had the option to either keep it or give a portion to a second player. Whatever sum the player chose to give away would be doubled, and the second player would then have the opportunity to give some back to the first player. In both player positions, the post-policy group chose to give away less money, demonstrating that they were generally less trusting of other players and likewise less trustworthy. In other games they shied away from risk and competition, tending instead toward pessimism and in some cases even neuroticism.

The Washington Post has an article on Allegheny Reproductive Health Center abortion clinic and abortion history in Pennsylvania.  Interestingly, writer Sarah Kliff fails to mention why the state of Pennsylvania passed a law in 2011 which "requires surgical abortion clinics to become certified as ambulatory surgical centers and meet other rules." Wouldn't want to bring up Kermit Gosnell, eh? 

NARAL has selected a new president named Ilyse Hogue.  From what I can tell, she hasn't written much on the issue of abortion and is more of a liberal movement insider as opposed to an abortion movement insider. 

In Alabama, a 70-year-old woman was arrested for spraying holy water after an abortion supporter claimed she was sprayed in the face.
In a Monday interview, Fecteau said the "unknown substance" was holy water that she keeps in a squirt bottle. She said she sprayed it because someone from the pro-choice group was walking close to her while burning a "noxious material."
