Socialised medicine, obesity, the pill and guessing games

Posted by hannahflynn on July 17, 2009

Because it’s Friday, here’s a round up of a week in the blogosphere:

  • The American Medical Association endorsed Obama’s healthcare reform bill, marking the end to nearly a century of opposition to ‘socialised medicine in the United States. The White House Blog has a video of the speech Obama made explaining why reform is needed now.
  • Dr Kathryn Clancy, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at The University of Illinois, gives her opinion on the effects of the pill when considering the population as a whole in her three part series, What does this anthropologist think about hormonal contraception?.
  • Twitter fave, His Boys Can Swim are running a contest to see who can guess the time their baby will be born. ‘Jane’ is currently 39 weeks pregnant and has been providing an account of her pregnancy through Twitter since the beginning.
