Experts need to speak about this and do I dare hope the Department of HHS defines rape, incest, unwanted pregnancy and the chances of unprotected sex results in pregnancy.

...“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Akin said that even in the worst-case scenario — when the supposed natural protections against unwanted pregnancy fail — abortion should still not be a legal option for the rape victim.
“Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work, or something,” Akin said. “I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”...
All those descriptors of pregnancy, a rape pregnancy, an incest pregnancy and an unwanted pregnancy are real words in a woman's vocabulary from time to time. Those status of a woman's health needs official recognition in the annals of HHS.

If virginity is a status of health then it needs definition as well. It is a medical status for gynecologists, so the word requires definition and I'll tell you why.

There are extremist words used in "Urban Dictionaries" that seek to define these words and health conditions of women. 

Urban Dictionary 

Killing an unborn child that was most likely your fault. 1 in every 4 babies are killed by abortion. By the time a woman decides to have a baby that baby can feel pain.the baby is not a part of the woman because as soon as he is concieved, he is a separate human being. and just because that baby cant speak fom himself yet, he has no say in whether or not his brains should be sucked out of his skull.I understand that there are women who from rape, but that is very rare because someone who is forcibly being sexed will be way too tense to concieve. and even if they do, there is adoption. couples in america wait as long as seven years to a baby because they cant concieve. and dont you even tell me overpopulation is a problem. it isnt.

The extremist language doesn't end with rape and they are political tools. What the Political Right Wing always hopes is that expert language will be substituted by mumbo jumbo through ignorance of the electorate. In that is a reality that votes will ultimately win out when the dummy-downed electorate actually elects opportunistic politicians like Akin. Anything is possible with god, you know.

The language of women's health at official levels such as HHS has to be defined and officially filed by panels of experts, so women stop falling victim to fraud and wrong headed political forces.

Thank you. I'd appreciate it.

This is the al Qaeda militant the USA drones were seeking during the attacks along the Pakistan border.

He is unconfirmed dead due to two strikes. His death still remains unconfirmed. At least to some reports.

Ilyas Kashmiri, also referred to as Maulana Ilyas Kashmiri and Muhammad Ilyas Kashmiri

The Pakistani military does not want to confirm his death to some, evidently. Basically, two reasons, increased hostilities and a legitimate use of USA drones. My question, what was he doing within easy reach of Pakistan's military? And why did it take a drone attack to kill him then?

Islamabad: Not withstanding (click title to entry - thank you) Taliban's insistence that militant commander Ilyas Kashmiri is dead, senior Pakistani military authorities in South Waziristan tribal region are still reluctant to confirm that he was killed in a US drone strike over a year ago.

"We, on our own level, did some investigations but could not find any clue that could prove his death in the drone attack. We knew that he had arrived in Wana a few days before the June 4 drone attack (last year)," an unnamed Pakistani army official told The News daily.

Pakistani Taliban militants, particularly those considered close to Kashmiri, who was linked to the 2008 Mumbai attacks, claim that he was injured in the drone strike at Shokai Narray village, located near the towns of Karikot and Ghwakhwa, on June 4, 2011. 

They claim he subsequently died in another drone strike conducted a week later at Danna village near Wana. 

Senior commanders of the Taliban faction in South Waziristan led by Maulvi Nazeer said Kashmiri travelled a few days before his death from Mirali in North Waziristan to Wana. He made the move on the advice of friends due to frequent drone attacks in Mirali that killed a number of his fighters. 

They said Kashmiri held a meeting with Maulvi Nazeer in Wana and then left for Azam Warsak, where the Punjabi Taliban had camps. 

The militants were targeted by drones at Shokai Narray on June 4 last year....

His death escalated retribution attacks by the Taliban. He is stated in this article as the next Osama bin Laden.

Sunday 05 June 2011 
...Senior Punjabi Taliban commanders (click here) and close aides to the top Pakistani militant leader confirmed the killing of Ilyas Kashmiri in the US drone attack and warned they would avenge the "martyrdom" of their "Ameer" from the United States and Pakistan....

Bin Laden was within an arms reach of a military academy and Kashmiri was within an arms length of a military unit. Both al Qaeda and now there are al Qaeda like attacks on NATO forces. What gives?

...Yahya, wanted by Pakistani security agencies and believed to be operating in southern Punjab, said he had received Kashmiri's bloodstained shirt with a piece of paper carrying directives from the top leadership to cut the shirt into pieces for distribution among senior leaders of his organisation, Harkat-ul-Jehad al-Islami (HUJI)....

...He said Kashmiri was considered the master trainer among militant groups operating in the tribal areas. 

"He was a veteran commander. I remember he once gave a lecture on how to avoid losses in drone attacks. He directed all of us to display dresses of women and children on the ropes in our camps and also to put some items in the courtyards so that those operating the drones consider their hideouts as houses where women and children were residing," said the Taliban leader belonging to the Mehsud tribe. 

He said Kashmiri's advice proved very helpful and the militants remained safe in several drone strikes in the region....

Harkat-ul-Jehad al-Islami (HUJI) was banned in Bangledesh in 2005. Why isn't it banned everywhere?

Why aren't these militant religious sects banned in the country's where their presence causes chronic upheaval? They certainly aren't good for the people or the young men recruited into them. If they can't be converted to a true understanding of the Muslim faith they why are they not dealt with in an effective manner. Prison. Saudi Arabia has successful reformation programs for these men. What is the problem already?

The Pakistan army chief, (click here) General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani may be ready to comply with one of the main demands of the Obama administration after the killing of Osama bin Laden in the raid on Abbottabad last month.
At the top of the list of “specific steps” put forward by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her visit to Islamabad last week was the launch of army operations against the Haqqani network, which has destabilised Afghanistan with its sanctuaries in North Waziristan, part of Pakistan’s troubled western borderlands.
The network headed by Afghan Pashtun warlord Jalaluddin Haqqani is allied with the AfghanTaliban and is said to have close links to al-Qaeda. More importantly, the Haqqani network has been nurtured and supported by the Pakistan army’s spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)....

Five New Zealand soldiers died this past month in Afghanistan. Reports from New Zealand state more soldiers to be sent.

More New Zealand non-combat troops may be sent into Afghanistan now that increased insurgent activity has resulted in the deaths of five Kiwi soldiers this month.
Prime Minister John Key said the support may come from non-combat SAS forces who would assist with logistics and planning.
Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker, 26, Private Richard Harris, 21, and Corporal Luke Tamatea, 31, were killed instantly on Sunday evening (NZT) when their humvee, the last in a convoy, was struck by a 20 kilogram improvised explosive device (IED) on the road to Do Abe in the northeast of Bamiyan Province.
When questioned today about the use of humvee vehicles, Mr Key said: "No vehicle would have survived that explosion."
He described the blast as "massive"....

These larger IEDs are usually the influence of al Qaeda. It was that way in Iraq. It usually isn't the people carrying out these type of attacks on NATO. The Taliban are busy. They want the region. 

...Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant General Rhys Jones described the insurgents responsible for the deaths of the five New Zealand soldiers as "proficient" and "aggressively trying to hunt us down"....

Also, there has been violence throughout the region due to the religious holiday, including India. The Taliban probably get more recruits during religious holidays.

Assam violence: Islamabad, Delhi spar over ‘reprisal’ rumours (click here)

New Delhi India has blamed Pakistan for theatening messages on the internet that triggered a mass exodus from Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Chennai by migrants fleeing to their homes in the northeast.
The exodus was sparked by threats sent via mobile phones and the websites carrying Pakistan’s IP addresses, conveying that people from Assam, particularly the Christian tribesmen, would be attacked by Muslims after the end of Ramazan in reprisal for recent ethnic violence in the northeastern state.
“Our agencies have discovered that the bulk of these messages have been uploaded on various Pakistani websites,” Indian Home Secretary R K Singh told reporters. “This is a first of its kind and we believe it is highly reprehensible,” he said.
Singh said India would register a formal protest with Pakistan....

Jammu: Heavy firing exchanges erupted (click here) along the International border after Pakistan again violated the ceasefire by targeting Indian posts to push in a group of militants in Akhnoor sector of Jammu district, where one intruder was killed. 

This is the fourteenth time that Pakistan has violated the ceasefire along the international border (IB) and Line of Control (LoC) in the last fortnight. 

Pakistani Rangers fired on Indian posts of Mala Bela, Garkhal, Sidra camp and Naka Number-10 along IB in Akhnoor sector of Jammu district around 2230 hours last night, officials said on Monday....

And here is why.

Detecting Tunnels on Indo-Pak border (click here)


Jammu/New Delhi, Aug 19: The BSF has begun an exhaustive survey of all those vulnerable spots along the Indo-Pak border to detect any possible signs of a tunnel similar to the one recently unearthed in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district.
 A team of BSF officials have been tasked to carry out the survey and report the findings to the force headquarters here.
 "We are trying to identify all those places along the border which can be vulnerable for any possible tunneling-like activity or any other ways of infiltration and smuggling. The officers have been tasked for the job," BSF chief U K Bansal told PTI here. The Director General (DG) of BSF said although no new tunnels have been found along the sensitive border since the Samba incident, the force is taking no chances to ensure that the frontiers remain "sacrosanct and secure"....
