    Because Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right

    Because Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right

    I have written before about the moral angst sweeping the upscale Village of Cayuga Heights, bordering the Cornell campus and home to a large number of professors and staff, over how to control the out-of-control deer population.

    After years of debate, which tore the community apart, Cayuga Heights has come up with a solution:

    The board of trustees passed a resolution Monday night to begin implementation of the phased options approach to deer management. The village will begin with the surgical sterilization of 20-60 does within a two-year period, followed by the culling of the remainder of the herd.

    The cost per sterilization? Don’t ask:

    The first phase of sterilization is estimated to take two years at an average cost of $1,200 per doe, according to the statement.

    If they do for our health care system what they’ve done for the deer of Cayuga Heights, we’re sunk.

    I really like this blog. Not only are the posts by Prof Jacobson fascinating, the comments are insightful and, particularly in this case, really, really funny!
