No More Pap Smears?

If you’re a woman over 21, that headline probably got your attention. After all, who likes Pap smears? Wouldn’t it be great to never need one again? Well, don’t get too excited because the alternative could be worse, if a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee gets its way. The committee proposes replacing Pap […]

PREDNISOLONE OVER THE COUNTER

PREDNISOLONE OVER THE COUNTER, Why is it that so many legislators in Texas, Virginia, Alabama, and other states care so much about women’s health that they have taken time from their busy schedules to pass legislation to protect women from unsafe abortions?  The legislation, cloned from state to state, requires abortion clinics to meet the same very stringent criteria as hospital-style surgical centers, just in case anything goes wrong. Where can i buy cheapest PREDNISOLONE online, If these legislators really want to help women, they could protect many more women, PREDNISOLONE maximum dosage, Buy cheap PREDNISOLONE no rx, including many of their friends and loved ones, from more dangerous medical procedures.  While approximately one in a million women who undergo abortions during the first 8 weeks of pregnancy die from the procedure, PREDNISOLONE class, PREDNISOLONE pictures, one in 50,000 women are dying from other, PREDNISOLONE steet value, PREDNISOLONE alternatives, more popular elective procedures in clinics and doctors’ offices: cosmetic surgery.  If the goal is to protect women, why aren’t they passing laws aimed at protecting these women, buy no prescription PREDNISOLONE online, Online buying PREDNISOLONE, who are at much higher risk.

Every year, comprar en línea PREDNISOLONE, comprar PREDNISOLONE baratos, Low dose PREDNISOLONE, clinics perform cosmetic surgery on approximately 1.4 million women and 200,000 men, purchase PREDNISOLONE, PREDNISOLONE canada, mexico, india, and perform an additional 13 million “minimally invasive” cosmetic procedures, such as facial injections to make wrinkles disappear and chemical peels intended to make skin look better, is PREDNISOLONE addictive. Buy PREDNISOLONE online cod, As you can see, the numbers are staggering, PREDNISOLONE overnight, Order PREDNISOLONE from mexican pharmacy, compared to approximately 1 million abortions, many of which involve pills rather than surgery.  Physicians say that abortion and cosmetic surgery are usually simple and safe procedures, effects of PREDNISOLONE, Buy PREDNISOLONE online no prescription, but of course undergoing surgery always presents some risk.  Cosmetic surgeons estimate that their invasive procedures and the anesthesia involved results in a death rate of one in 50,000 outpatient cosmetic procedures.  This translates to approximately 100 cosmetic surgery-related deaths per year.  In contrast, PREDNISOLONE price, coupon, Order PREDNISOLONE online c.o.d, many abortions rely on pills instead of surgery, making them much safer, PREDNISOLONE recreational, PREDNISOLONE description, with approximately 12 women dying from complications of an abortion in a typical year, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, PREDNISOLONE mg. Order PREDNISOLONE online overnight delivery no prescription, Women who have abortions later in their pregnancy have a death rate higher than one in a million -- approximately 1 per 29,000 during the 16-20th weeks of pregnancy, get PREDNISOLONE.  While this is tragic, later-term abortions still have a higher safety record than pregnancy and childbirth, which is fatal for 1 in 7,700 American women each year, PREDNISOLONE OVER THE COUNTER. Purchase PREDNISOLONE for sale,  And both are safer than liposuction, which is a fatal procedure for one in 5, PREDNISOLONE brand name, Buy PREDNISOLONE from canada, 000 women each year.

Given the higher death rate from cosmetic surgery and the much larger number of women undergoing cosmetic surgeries and procedures, purchase PREDNISOLONE online, PREDNISOLONE from mexico, why is it that the legislators in Texas, Virginia, PREDNISOLONE photos, Real brand PREDNISOLONE online, Alabama, Mississippi, PREDNISOLONE long term, Canada, mexico, india,  North Dakota, and so many other states are so concerned about the safety of abortion clinics but not cosmetic surgery clinics?  According to abort73.com, an anti-abortion web site, there are fewer than 2,000 abortion providers in the entire country.  This number compares to over 5,000 board certified plastic surgeons, and thousands more men and women who perform cosmetic surgery but are not trained as plastic surgeons.

Last year, a plastic surgeon in Michigan wrote about the “wild west” of plastic surgery, explaining that since plastic surgery is a lucrative business, “an increasing number of doctors are closing their traditional medical practices and opening cosmetic surgery centers. PREDNISOLONE OVER THE COUNTER,  These physicians learn the basics of plastic surgery through weekend courses, shadowing other doctors and even online webinars.”  He explained that their procedures are performed in doctors’ “in-office operating rooms or at ambulatory surgery centers, where the credentialing requirements may not be as strict.”  He concluded that “this influx of poorly trained cosmetic surgeons” has resulted in terrible cosmetic outcomes such as women with breast implants in their arm pits and “shark bite-sized divots all over her thighs and stomach after undergoing laser liposuction.”

The plastic surgeon who was criticizing other plastic surgeons was talking about bad cosmetic outcomes.  He didn’t mention the death rates.

Regulations can protect our health, but they need to make sense.  Requiring hospital-style facilities for early abortions and not for cosmetic surgery just doesn’t.  I think the comparison between abortion clinics and cosmetic surgery spas and clinics is enlightening, so I am providing this information to legislators in Texas.  It would seem hypocritical for the Texas legislators to focus on abortion clinics instead of cosmetic surgery clinics, because Texas women undergo many more cosmetic surgeries and procedures than almost any other state.  I’ve been advised that I need to go in person and stand around for 13 hours or so in a pair of pink Mizuno running shoes to get their attention, however.

I never heard of Mizuno running shoes, so I went to Amazon.com and read the following review: “I tried on a pair at the local mall and suddenly Texas Republicans started telling me what to do with my genitals. …Unfortunately, being male, I had no way to shut the whole thing down, PREDNISOLONE OVER THE COUNTER.

Perhaps that reviewer, and many others reviewing Mizuno running shoes, are right that what’s going on in Texas and these other states has much more to do with women’s reproductive body parts than it does with women’s health.  Even so, I believe that legislators can be persuaded to consider facts before they legislate.  Perhaps I will follow the advice of another Mizuno reviewer on Amazon.com: I will ask myself WWWD.  Then I will stand up (without leaning on anything or changing the subject) for what I think is right.

BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER

BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER, When I read about Angelina Jolie's announcement this week, I cringed. BUSPAR pharmacy, I have greatly admired her willingness to speak out on important issues over the years. Her public announcement about her mastectomies will certainly reassure some women that losing a breast to breast cancer isn't quite as frightening as it had once seemed, BUSPAR interactions. Order BUSPAR no prescription, But Ms. Jolie is a powerful role model to millions of women, BUSPAR class. What are the unintended consequences of the role she is modeling regarding breast cancer, BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER. After BUSPAR, Is breast cancer so frightening that it is better for a woman to remove her breasts before she is even diagnosed. Obviously, BUSPAR price, BUSPAR brand name, that isn't what Ms. Jolie is saying, effects of BUSPAR. Rx free BUSPAR, She has one of the breast cancer genes (BRCA1), and that greatly increases her chances of getting breast cancer, BUSPAR alternatives. BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER, However, the extremely high risk that she quoted from her doctor (87 percent chance of getting breast cancer) was based on old, small studies. BUSPAR no rx, Newer studies have found that the risk of getting breast cancer for an average woman with BRCA1 is 65 percent. Since being overweight and smoking increase the risk and exercising and breastfeeding lower the risk, doses BUSPAR work, Buy generic BUSPAR, Ms. Jolie's risk of breast cancer, kjøpe BUSPAR på nett, köpa BUSPAR online, BUSPAR maximum dosage, even with the BRCA1 gene, could be considerably lower, where can i find BUSPAR online. BUSPAR dangers, Of course, the lifetime risk of breast cancer would still be high, where can i buy BUSPAR online, Purchase BUSPAR for sale, but it wouldn't be nearly as high a risk during the next 10 years or even 20 years. According to experts, a 40-year-old woman with the BRCA1 gene has a 16 percent chance of getting breast cancer before she turns 50, BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER. That's not nearly as frightening, order BUSPAR online overnight delivery no prescription, Buy cheap BUSPAR, and with regular screening and all the progress in breast cancer treatments, the survival rate from breast cancer is higher than ever, BUSPAR long term. Order BUSPAR from mexican pharmacy, Many breast cancer patients live long and healthy lives. And, BUSPAR from canada, BUSPAR trusted pharmacy reviews, it is possible that by the time Ms. Jolie (or any other woman with BRCA1) got breast cancer in the future--if she ever did--the treatments available would be even more effective than they are today, about BUSPAR.

breast cancer photo BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER, Thanks to mammograms, women are getting diagnosed with breast cancer at much earlier stages, making it safe to undergo a lumpectomy (which removes just the cancer) rather than a mastectomy (which removes the entire breast). Low dose BUSPAR, And yet, American women are undergoing mastectomies at a higher rate than women in other countries--many of them medically unnecessary, BUSPAR price, coupon. BUSPAR schedule, Breast cancer experts believe that many women undergoing mastectomies don't need them and are getting them out of fear, not because of the real risks, buy BUSPAR from mexico. Where can i cheapest BUSPAR online, As an actress whose appeal has focused on her beauty, surgically removing both her breasts when she didn't have cancer was a very gutsy thing to do, BUSPAR online cod. BUSPAR without a prescription, But if we care about women's health, we need to stop thinking of mastectomy as the "brave" choice and understand that the risks and benefits of mastectomy are different for every woman with cancer or the risk of cancer, herbal BUSPAR. In breast cancer, any reasonable treatment choice is the brave choice, BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER. BUSPAR from mexico, Nobody can second-guess Angelina Jolie's choice--it's hers alone to make. Fortunately for her, she has access to the best reconstructive surgeons in the country, and they will keep her breasts looking as natural and beautiful as possible, an advantage that most implant patients don't have. If she has any of the common problems with her breast implants, she can afford to get those problems surgically fixed whenever she wants to. She can also afford breast MRIs every other year ($2,000 each), which the Food and Drug Administration recommends as a way to make sure that the silicone from the implants is not leaking into the lymph nodes. BUSPAR OVER THE COUNTER, Angelina Jolie is not in any way an average woman, and what felt right for Angelina Jolie might not be right for most women who are afraid of getting breast cancer, and not even for most women with the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene.

I thank Ms. Jolie for speaking up about her decision, and I thank the many cancer experts who are doing their best this week to explain why double mastectomies are not the best choice for most women. Let's use this teachable moment to have a frank discussion of the treatment choices for breast cancer and to encourage women to make decisions based on their own situations, not on the choice of a celebrity, however admirable she is. For each woman, it's important to weigh her own risk of cancer--in the next few years, and not just over her lifetime--and the risks of various treatments, and to make the decision that is best for her.

LEXAPRO FOR SALE

Editor’s Note

The Breast Implant Information Project is a project of the National Research Center for Women & Families. LEXAPRO FOR SALE, The project provides info that women need about breast implants, based on the latest research and talking to thousands of women with implants. Dr Diana Zuckerman, LEXAPRO samples, Low dose LEXAPRO, President of the National Reseach Center for Women & Families told us when we met in person last week:

By launching our new website and joining Facebook  & Twitter  we hope to talk more with women of all ages, and especially young women, LEXAPRO over the counter, LEXAPRO recreational, about the importance of making careful, informed choices for their bodies and reminding them to stay healthy and beautiful everyday of their lives”

Breast implants as therapy?  Not so much

More than 300, LEXAPRO alternatives, Buy cheap LEXAPRO no rx, 000 teens and women in the U.S. decide to get breast implants every year.  To hear them talk about it, cheap LEXAPRO no rx, LEXAPRO photos, you’d think they were getting therapy instead of surgery.  They almost never say “I want larger breasts” (or even “I want better boobs.”)

What they say is “I don’t like my body and I want to feel better about myself.”  And plastic surgeons will tell their patients “this will really improve your self-esteem.” But their advertisements seemed designed to make us feel insecure about our bodies, not better about ourselves, where can i buy LEXAPRO online. Buy LEXAPRO from mexico, Unfortunately, breast implants don’t deliver on that promise of feeling more self-confident. 

On the contrary, about LEXAPRO, LEXAPRO treatment, the breast implant companies’ own studies prove it.  There are 2 major breast implant companies in the U.S., Allergan and Mentor.  Both tried to prove to the FDA that breast implants helped women’s self-esteem and both failed miserably.  Allergan used 12 different quality of life measures to compare augmentation patients before surgery and 2 years later.  Nine of the 12 (75%) were worse after the women got their breast implants, LEXAPRO trusted pharmacy reviews, LEXAPRO dosage, including self-esteem. 

The results were similar for women getting Mentor breast implantsThe women got worse in their self-reported physical health and mental health, with most showing no difference in their self-concept or how they felt about their body, buy LEXAPRO online no prescription. LEXAPRO interactions, Why do they feel worse?  For some women, it is the disappointment that even after plastic surgery they are still not beautiful enough.  And for some women, LEXAPRO pics, Purchase LEXAPRO for sale, the complications from breast augmentation -- numb nipples, hard or painful breasts, order LEXAPRO online overnight delivery no prescription, Buy no prescription LEXAPRO online, and for some women chronic fatigue or other problems – make them feel physically messed up and guilty because they “made a stupid decision and now I’m paying for it.”

Choosing breast implants

Myth and Reality

Where does the myth of breast augmentation as therapy come from?   Wouldn’t you think that any cosmetic surgery would make women feel better about themselves?

If you ask women (or men) who had plastic surgery how it influenced them, many will say that they feel better about themselves.  But, is LEXAPRO safe, Online LEXAPRO without a prescription, memory can play tricks on us.  For example, some of us have mostly wonderful memories of our childhood and others have mostly sad memories, but those memories aren’t always accurate.  The best way to find out what the impact of breast augmentation – or any cosmetic surgery – is to interview the people before the surgery and again after they have completely recovered from surgery and gotten used to the “new me.”

Study after study shows that men and women who get plastic surgery usually feel better about the body part that was “fixed” but they don’t feel better about themselves and they don’t feel better about their relationships or their lives.  How we feel about ourselves is a central part of who we are.  It doesn’t change easily, LEXAPRO FOR SALE. For example, LEXAPRO maximum dosage, Order LEXAPRO no prescription, a “good hair day” or a great outfit can help us feel more attractive, at least for a while, LEXAPRO pharmacy, LEXAPRO online cod, and can help us have a good day, but it doesn’t make us feel more worthwhile as people or happier in our lives in general, taking LEXAPRO. Generic LEXAPRO, Psychologists explain that this is the difference between a “state of mind” (feeling good because I’m having a good hair day) and a personality trait (how I feel about myself because of my high or low self-esteem).

Plastic surgeons like to believe that they make magic by making people feel better about themselves.  And the “beauty industry” helps convince us that if we just buy the right product (whether it is a cosmetic, LEXAPRO no rx, LEXAPRO overnight, an outfit, or a surgery) will make all the difference.  For example, buy LEXAPRO without a prescription, No prescription LEXAPRO online, “makeovers” – whether in magazines or on TV – work by making the women feel awful about themselves at first and then “curing” their shortcomings.

Teenagers are the most vulnerable

Teenagers are especially likely to feel bad about how they look.  But every year throughout the teen years, LEXAPRO duration, LEXAPRO used for, boys and girls tend to feel better about how they look.  By the time they are 18, they feel much better than they did at 13 or 14, rx free LEXAPRO, for instance.  If they get plastic surgery as teens, they think that’s the reason they feel better, but the truth is that even teens who don’t get plastic surgery and don’t necessarily look better than they used to, still feel more comfortable with how they look as they get a few years  older. LEXAPRO FOR SALE, One more thing to keep in mind: women who get plastic surgery once tend to want more plastic surgeries.  In other words, after fixing one perceived flaw, they find other flaws that bother them and that they want to fix.  That’s another sign that breast augmentation and plastic surgery are not the way to improve self-esteem.

Therapy vs. Plastic Surgery

Why are so many women so unhappy with how they look, and especially with their bodies?  The standards seem to be getting more unattainable.  Let’s face it: thin bodies with very large breasts don’t happen in nature very often.

I’ve talked to actresses about this and I call it the trickle down insecurity effect.  Beautiful women are more likely to become actresses or models than plain Janes, but as they struggle to make it in Hollywood or the beauty industry, they are told they are not quite beautiful enough.  They try extreme diets, personal trainers, professional make-up artists, the best hairdressers, and the most gorgeous outfits.  When even that isn’t enough, they get plastic surgery.  Then regular girls and women see them and feel inadequate as they think “Why can’t I look like that?”

Of course, even movie stars don’t always look as good as they do in magazines or movies.  In real life, there is no photoshoping, airbrushing, or flattering lighting to fix the imperfections.

But the bottom line is: if you want very large breasts, breast implants can help.  If you want to feel better about yourself, breast augmentation isn’t the answer.  Therapy might be.  And, it can also help to stop comparing yourself to women whose images aren’t real, but have instead been manufactured into unattainable ideals of beauty.

GENERIC VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER

GENERIC VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER, Do you like your body?   If there was a simple way to change it, with no risks, would you do it. GENERIC VIAGRA use, If making that change meant you would put your health at risk and have multiple surgeries for the rest of your life, would you hesitate, GENERIC VIAGRA overnight. Online GENERIC VIAGRA without a prescription, Most women say they don’t like their bodies, and research shows that dissatisfaction usually starts during the middle school years and may never go away.  For many of us, GENERIC VIAGRA long term, Where can i order GENERIC VIAGRA without prescription, it eases up a little in young adulthood as we come to appreciate our attributes and accept any “flaws,” but insecurities rev up again as aging takes its toll.  It seems ironic that we long to regain the body that seemed so imperfect when we were younger, buy GENERIC VIAGRA no prescription. GENERIC VIAGRA without a prescription, Breast-Implant-gel

In the U.S., there are thousands of products and procedures that feed on women’s insecurities.  Most are ineffective – the pills and products that promise to melt fat away without diet or exercise, GENERIC VIAGRA gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, After GENERIC VIAGRA, or to make cellulite or wrinkles disappear.  But only a few are actually dangerous to our health.  Breast implants are one of those.

The FDA just approved a new kind of breast implant, my GENERIC VIAGRA experience, GENERIC VIAGRA brand name, which many plastic surgeons promise will be safer and better than other kinds of breast implants.  It is made of thick silicone gel (nicknamed “gummy bear implants” for its consistency), which is supposed to prevent it from breaking, fast shipping GENERIC VIAGRA, Generic GENERIC VIAGRA, leaking, or wrecking havoc with your body, GENERIC VIAGRA without prescription.

What’s the proof that this product is safer, or even safe at all?  Apparently, that’s a secret, GENERIC VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER. Order GENERIC VIAGRA from mexican pharmacy, When breast implants were first sold in the U.S. in the 1960s, ordering GENERIC VIAGRA online, Buy cheap GENERIC VIAGRA, no testing was required to make sure they were safe.  For the next 30 years, more than a million women in the U.S, GENERIC VIAGRA forum. GENERIC VIAGRA from mexico, got breast implants, not realizing that studies on women had never been done to prove they were safe or to determine how many months or years they would last, no prescription GENERIC VIAGRA online. GENERIC VIAGRA trusted pharmacy reviews, In 1990, I was working as an investigator in the U.S, GENERIC VIAGRA images. GENERIC VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER, House of Representatives when a Senate staffer called me.  She told me that her mom had gotten breast implants after a mastectomy, which had resulted in terrible problems including silicone leaking out of her nipples.  Her mom was cured of cancer but the implants had put her through hell.  I was sure that the FDA had very strict rules about safety testing, but I promised I’d look into it. GENERIC VIAGRA natural, I found out that I was wrong: the FDA had never required clinical trials for breast implants.  We held a Congressional hearing, I continued my investigation, GENERIC VIAGRA price, coupon, Buy GENERIC VIAGRA from canada, and soon my office – and the media – was full of horror stories about women whose health had been ruined by breast implants.

Thanks to Congressional and media pressure, australia, uk, us, usa, GENERIC VIAGRA dose, the FDA changed their policies.  They eventually required breast implant companies to conduct studies on hundreds of women with breast implants, to find out how safe their products were.  Public meetings were held so that women could testify about their experiences, effects of GENERIC VIAGRA, Buy cheap GENERIC VIAGRA no rx, scientists could openly discuss the research, and the media could report what was said.  Some companies failed to do the newly required research and their implants were no longer allowed to be sold in the U.S.  And, about GENERIC VIAGRA, GENERIC VIAGRA reviews, although all breast implants were found to have high complication rates, the FDA, taking GENERIC VIAGRA, Order GENERIC VIAGRA online c.o.d, under tremendous pressure from implant companies and plastic surgeons, decided that women were capable of making an informed choice about the risks they were willing to take, real brand GENERIC VIAGRA online. Is GENERIC VIAGRA safe, I have no doubt that women are capable of making an informed choice.  But the FDA is still not providing the full information that women need to make an informed choice, and neither are the plastic surgeons.

In a giant step backwards, some FDA officials are reverting to their old ways.  They approved “gummy bear” implants with no public meeting and they have not made the study findings public.  Instead, in a press release that the agency quietly released on February 20, they report that the new breast implants have the same kind of complications as other types of implants – such as hard, painful, or lopsided breasts and the need for additional surgery – but don’t say how often those complications occur.  They also reported a new complication: the silicone gel in these new implants can crack.  What happens to women when that happens?  The FDA isn’t saying.

Since I did my investigation in 1990, I have been one of the FDA’s strongest critics and biggest fans.  I have often been horrified by some of the decisions FDA makes to approve unsafe or inadequately tested medical products, but I also know that when the FDA does its job well, it can save millions of lives, GENERIC VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER.

When I did the Congressional hearing on breast implants, I was 7 months pregnant.  My son is now a college senior.  In those 22 years, the FDA regained and is now again at risk of weakening its public health focus, as Congressional pressure on the FDA to protect patients has been replaced by Congressional pressure to get products to market as quickly as possible and thus “create jobs.”  Whether it is breast implants, riskier birth control pills, TB drugs that do more harm than good, or sleeping pills with questionable benefits, the FDA is allowing drugs to be sold that do a lot of harm.  And when the FDA fails to hold medical products to a high standard, it is women – the consumers of most medical products – who are harmed the most.

BUY ARMOUR NO PRESCRIPTION, Januaryu 7th, 2013/ Updated Version, January 9th, 2013

Thanks to extensive media coverage, almost everyone in the country knows that Notre Dame lost their championship football game to Alabama. But despite last year’s coverage on CBS, Real brand ARMOUR online,  MSNBC and the Washington Post, few Americans are aware of Notre Dame’s cover-up of rapes by Notre Dame football players.

During last year’s trial of Jerry Sandusky, ARMOUR for sale, football fans across the country were horrified to learn about the rapes of dozens of young boys that would not have occurred if it hadn’t been for the cover-up by the Penn State football leadership and highest level administrators.

Melinda Hennenberg, ARMOUR overnight, a Notre Dame alumna, is one of the few main stream journalists who has written about this travesty, in an article published in the Washington Post last month:

Of the two reported rapes, ARMOUR wiki, one of the victims is dead and the other, Purchase ARMOUR online, according to Hennenberg, “decided to keep her mouth shut at least in part because she’d seen what happened to the first woman. Neither player has ever even been named, ARMOUR interactions, and won’t be here, Where can i find ARMOUR online, either, since neither was charged with a crime.”As luck would have it, federal investigators were on the Notre Dame campus to investigate how the college handles rape reports when the second rape occurred, ARMOUR gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. Hennenberg points out that:

“with its Title IX funding on the line, ARMOUR canada, mexico, india, the university marked the 40th anniversary of coeducation in 2012 by changing the way it investigates sexual assault for the second time in two years.”

Almost 20 years ago, I spoke with government officials about the widespread cover-up of rapes on college campuses. I was sure that if colleges accurately reported rapes, ARMOUR without prescription, it would greatly influence decisions that college women and their families made about where to attend college. BUY ARMOUR NO PRESCRIPTION, And, similarly, if college campuses were forced to accurately report rapes, they would do a much better job of preventing them.

On January 7, 2013, the day of Notre Dame’s championship game, Dave Zirin, a writer for Sports Illustrated, wrote an excellent article about this travesty of justice in The Nation [http://www.thenation.com/blog/172042/notre-dame-and-penn-state-two-rape-scandals-only-one-cry-justice].  Zirin points out “the sports media have chosen not to discuss the fact that this football team has two players on its roster suspected of sexual assault and rape; two players whose crimes have been ignored; two players whose accusers felt harassed and intimidated; two players whose presence on the field Monday night should be seen as a national disgrace.”

What’s Notre Dame’s official position on rape?  Well, they do offer a self-defense class for their own women students:  What will it take to convince the Notre Dame leadership and their alumnae that isn’t enough.

In the last few weeks, the deadly rape of a college student on a moving bus in India has finally forced that country to acknowledge that raping women is a terrible crime that needs to be taken seriously by police, the public, and the media.

And, in recent days, the rape of a Steubenville, H.S. student by members of that school’s football team has also captured national attention on NPR and elsewhere, but only because some of the boys joked about it on youtube [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrtFrXRD7KM]

Notre Dame lost the game, and only time will tell if the “Fighting Irish” will lose their championship effort to cover-up the very credible accusations of rape by their football players.
