    Unsafe Environment for Graduate Nurse?

    I would be interviewing with other units if I were you. If a 14 bed ER only has 2 nurses on it, what happens on the days when it's that nurse with a 2 week orientation and you alone after your orientation is cut short? This is setting you up for failure, moral distress, injury, poor patient outcomes... get yourself out of there and trust your gut on this one.

    Women's Right to Choose

    This is a straw man argument, you’ve stated in your post that you think her writings seem patronizing and that you think she had a dim vision of humanity, and this is opinion based. No one will argue about how sh***y Eugen Fischer was. The conference appears to have been about population growth, disease, poverty, etc- same thing that we discuss now with population growth. Regardless of Sanger, this post has gone off topic- you don’t have to support abortion, you can be religious, you can have 15 kids or no kids, it doesn’t matter. Pregnant people should have a say in what happens to their body. My body, my choice.

    Thanks, I'm able to find it but from what I'm seeing Sanger only edited these proceedings? This was in 1927 prior to the Holocaust. It seems that this conference was mostly about world population and it's trajectory and the issues that affect global populations, not just Germany. Sanger doesn't seem to have had a leadership role in the conference and I don't see anywhere that she appointed Eugen Fischer to any role. If you can find definitive proof of this association, I'd be happy to look at it but I don't see anything pointing to Sanger as a eugenicist or having any affiliation with the Nazis.

    I still have access to my school library but don't see anything linking Margaret Sanger with Eugen Fischer. I don't see anything for Proceedings of the World Population Conference 1927, my query matches no results. I also am not able to find anything for "Margaret Sanger" + "eugenics". I did find this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3884362 and this: https://www.nyu.edu/projects/sanger/webedition/app/documents/show.php?sangerDoc=420004.xml the only sites that I find claiming Sanger as a eugenicist are conservative such as the Family Research Council.

    My beliefs wouldn't be in laws, it would be a lack of beliefs in law to allow a pregnant person to choose what happens to their own body. Most will carry, some will not. You do not know my opinion on abortion, and it will remain that way.

    I'm asking again- please cite this, quote it, where did she speak and who spoke at her event?

    I never said you were a bad person, and no one said anything about evil intent. You made a statement that your favorite family is a religious minority, and I attached a link to a story about how this defense is seen as problematic in today's society. On the subject of tolerance, though; you have your opinion on abortion and that is fine- you can have your opinion and live every day of your life behind it. Your opinion doesn't mandate me to live by your beliefs, though. Everyone gets to have an opinion and they can be worlds apart from one another, but that's just it- it's an opinion, and it should have no place in the laws that preside over my or anyone else's body. Your opinions and your beliefs are yours, while mine are mine. Your beliefs and your opinions should have no weight in the writing of laws that dictate how anyone lives their lives. My body, my choice; just like your body, your choice.

    Find the quote that says it was "best to abort poor minorities and the disabled". My personal opinion on someone's decision to terminate a pregnancy has no bearing in this conversation, and I don't know what anyone else's motives are to terminate. It is not my business. I do not believe that there should be a 6 week ban on abortion. Period. That's my opinion.

    If you read my whole post, you'd see that you can click the research directly from the NPR page. It seems you skipped over this. You mentioned independent sources, but failed to realize that Concerned Women for America is a socially conservative movement that opposed the Violence Against Women Act because it "creates new protections for homosexuals", that they're against hate crime legislation because it opposes the Bible's view on homosexuality, believes same sex marriage is akin to incest, etc. Your sources are radically biased as well. You can go back to the link I posted and click the research to better inform yourself.

    Okay, so the people like who, who are "pro-life" will crowd fund the expenses that this child will incur? The medical expenses that mom will have? Schooling? Food? Adequate housing? Will your crowd fund get the time back that mom had to take off from school or work? Will your crowd fund also pay for maternity leave? What about a surrogate fee so that the baby can be adopted to an infertile couple?

    This is why a ban on abortion will affect the lives of people of color at or below the poverty line more than anyone else. This is wildly exclusionary and makes care that people need inaccessible. Abortion is healthcare, and healthcare should be funded in all ways. Let that funding go to teaching, sex ed, prevention of pregnancy. You don't have to get an abortion, and no one is asking if you would if you had to make the decision. It is not anyone's business but your own whether you could or would ever have an abortion if you were faced with the choice.

    Where on earth did you find this information? Are you looking up the right Sanger? Are you getting your facts from Ben Carson and Fox News? This article contains links to research that counters the accusations you're making. https://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/08/14/432080520/fact-check-was-planned-parenthood-started-to-control-the-black-population

    On this dated note, "In 2014, some 46% of all abortion patients had never married and were not cohabiting. However, nearly half were living with a male partner in the month they became pregnant, including 14% who were married and 31% who were cohabiting" "Fifty-nine percent of abortions in 2014 were obtained by patients who had had at least one birth." Looks like the majority of abortions in the US are from women in committed relationships and women who have already had children. Link below. Do some research before spouting such unfounded "data". https://www.guttmacher.org/fact-sheet/induced-abortion-united-states

    1) no one should be guilted into staying pregnant because there are not enough babies to be adopted. There are plenty of children available for adoption, many of whom have been waiting for a loving home for years. 2) that is your opinion 3) congratulations on your son, but just because a pregnancy that was inconvenient panned out for you doesn't mean that everyone else will be joyful when they have a child that they didn't want. Your body, your choice. My body, my choice.

    New Graduate, Only one interview, Should I Be Picky

    I would follow up on the MPCU position. It doesn't look like you have an offer yet and if you want one then you have to express interest and make the ask. Follow up with the OB folks, if you don't hear back, then don't let another great opportunity slip away in hopes of "what if". Nursing is a field of taking opportunities where they come, and they're not always where you thought you wanted to be. More often than not, you learn a lot wherever you go and may even come to realize that what you thought you wanted was never the fit that you thought it would be. Before nursing school I swore up and down that I wanted to go into L&D and become a CNMW. That couldn't be further from what I want after working as a nurse. Take the opportunities where they come, and learn from them. Don't let it slip away if it's the only lead you have right now.
