This makes me so angry! And, since anger is just an emotional cover, I know that what I really am is sad.

Body Snatchers of Old New York

Body Snatchers of Old New York | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

There was a lot to be afraid of in New York after the Revolutionary War. Burned buildings loomed out of dark, crooked streets, which met at strange angles. Fights broke out in the taverns, while thieves lurked in the shadows. Families huddled in shantytowns constructed out of ships’ canvasses, while garbage piled high on the corners. The city watch was nothing more than forty men with clubs.


Besides the thieves and the brawls, people feared the medical students. The young men in black suits who studied at Columbia College and New York Hospital did as their teachers from England and Scotland had done: they learned anatomy by dissecting bodies stolen from the local cemeteries. In London and Edinburgh, a quasi-professional class of grave-robbers known as the “Resurrection Men” dug fresh corpses from the cemeteries of the poor and brought them to the medical school. In eighteenth-century New York, the medical students robbed the graves themselves, sneaking into cemeteries on cold, moonless nights and carrying wooden shovels to avoid the loud scrape of metal on stone.


But the bodies on the dissecting tables in New York often had a different hue than the bodies in Europe.

Big pharma’s latest secret: the morning after pill may not work if you weigh over 165 pounds

Big pharma’s latest secret: the morning after pill may not work if you weigh over 165 pounds | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The morning after pill may be less effective on women who weigh 165 pounds or more; it may be totally ineffective on women who weigh 176 pounds or more. So why doesn’t the average American woman know that her emergency contraception might not work?

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Given the average weight of an American woman, it seems that this ought to be illegal!
