That these stories appear in the Britpress on the same day is coincidence… isn’t it?
 
First this story telling of the link between a woman having an abortion and risks to later children she may want to carry to term. “Revealed: how an abortion puts the next baby at risk”.
 
Now this one describing an interesting phenomenon (or is it just a statistical blip?): children in developing countries beginning puberty at earlier and earlier ages. “Why puberty now begins at seven”.  Huh.
 
The first seems a case of cosmic justice, the second seems more like a case of cosmic balance of the first.  (But of course, that’s just me doing the human thing: looking for meaning… or creating it where there may be none.)
 
Story #1: h.t. Carol Liebau.
 
Story #2: h.t. Harry Irwin, posting at Jerry Pournelle’s Current Mail.
