On Friday April 2nd a Alpha Phi Omega Brother, Noel Berger was the Vet they took all the rescued animals to making sure they were OK.

State of Emergency
The team reunites displaced pets with families in South Carolina after rain results in record flooding. Will a pregnant dog make it home in time?
The squad rushes the pregnant chihuahua (who they have named Brooke, in honor of the flood) to vet Dr. Noel Berger for an assessment, who finds the mom-to-be in good health. Litters of chihuahuas tend to vary from a single puppy to up to 8, and Brooke looks like she’s expecting 3 puppies.

The team also locates a foster home for Brooke, so she can give birth to her puppies in the comfort of a home. Just two weeks after local resident Heather took her in, Brooke gave birth to a litter of beautiful puppies.

pretty dumb things – 13 ways of looking at an abortion

Thirty-nine years ago, the decision known as the Supreme Court handed down the decision known as Roe v. Wade, giving American women the legal right to abortion.

Saw this today and realized I should write about this. I’ve not had any abortions myself but I have been responsible for the fact that two women in my life have.

In College I was dating a gal- TH in my Sophomore year and she became pregnant, I was quite naive and that’s no excuse but she was only the second girl I had ever had sex with and I’m guessing she wasn’t on the pill. Found out later that we were just winging it and she was using the rhytumn method which is really not very reliable. I took her to the clinic and picked her up afterwards, I remember the price was about $200-300 dollars and it was done @ the local Planned Parenthood clinic, no one was picketing or anything at the time in 1980 or so.

The second time was about 4 years later, first year out of college I think or maybe second. AS was my first girlfriend out of school, had my own apartment and interestingly enough we didn’t really live together at all. I don’t really remember sleeping over a lot either. She had had several abortions herself since she didn’t want me to see the form she filled out with how many she had in the past. Interestingly, I found out later that she adopted when she got married, not sure if that had anything to do with the abortions or if she just DIDN’T want to deliver a baby through her vagina. Either way wouldn’t matter to me.

If I had married either of these women my life would be a LOT different than it is now, not sure if it’s better or worse.
