It was a tale of survival that made headlines across the country, prompting people everywhere to say, "I could never do that."

That's the young man who cut his own arm off.

A few days ago, the Connecticut Supreme Court in a fetal homicide case ruled that the fetus is a body part.

But apparently the Court saw it more as a body part like a dead fingernail or a hair than a body part like an arm.

Please read The S.I.C.L.E. Cell on this.

Update: Minute Particulars relates two survival stories. As we read through the mountain climber story, I imagine that most of us are hoping against hope that he won't cut the rope. It's a poignant contrast to so many instances of pregnancy termination, where so many women are surrounded by a Greek chorus of people who cajole, insist, demand that she cut the damn rope.
