  Abnormality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abnormality is a subjectively defined characteristic, assigned to those with rare or dysfunctional conditions.
Defining who is normal or abnormal is a contentious issue in abnormal psychology.
Therefore, abnormal behaviour is considered to be statistically rare as well as undesireable.

The abnormality is usually very small, but the exposed contents can range from the stomach to the rectum (almost all of large and small bowel can become exposed).
If the abnormality is large the surgeon may decide to cover the area with a Silastic Silo, this will enable as much bowel as possible to be returned to the abdominal cavity during the operation.
Most infants with this abnormality return from the operating a theatre with a central line (Hickmann's or Broviac catheter) inserted into the chest area, this enables the infant to be given a period of Total Parental Nutrition (Alimentation).

 Abortion for fetal abnormality: ethical issues
Thus the issue is whether abortion for abnormality is being carried out for the benefit of the population or the State, or for the benefit of the women with those pregnancies.
Abortion on grounds of fetal abnormality is not a matter of eugenics, it is a means to extend women's control over their lives and futures.
In conclusion, abortion for fetal abnormality is not eugenic, unethical or immoral.

 Data transfer abnormality processing system - Patent 4500953
The transfer abnormality signal produced by the transfer abnormality check circuit is stored in a transfer abnormality setting flip-flop in each data processing circuit with a clock pulse which is produced delayed with respect to a bus use permission signal.
In order to perform the abnormality processing operation with a delay of one cycle, the flip-flop 316 is set by the synchronizing clock signal CLK at the timing T.sub.3, and upon transfer of the transfer abnormality signal TES the flip-flop 34 is set.
Accordingly, although the transfer abnormality processing operation is carried out similarly as in the prior art, the period of time required for the transfer abnormality processing operation can be neglected when compared with the total data transferring time.

For this reason, we often assume that the genetic abnormality is rare in the population.
This means that, in a given family, very few (usually one) of the first generation individuals carry the abnormality and very few (usually none) individuals who "marry" into the family carry the abnormality.
Then either 2, or both 1 and 3 would have to show the abnormality for it to be present in the children.

 Ethics and abortion for fetal abnormality
If a woman finds out that her fetus is affected by an abnormality which means that the child that she is carrying can never be that child that she has wanted, it is very understandable that her attitude towards the pregnancy may change.
I think that it is as inappropriate for feminists or disability rights activists to be as judgmental with regard to abnormality, as it is for doctors to have disapproved of our reasons for having abortions because they thought that we should be eternal earth mothers and produce children every time that we have sex.
What happens it that when a woman has an ante-natal test that detects a particular abnormality, she is then in a situation whereby the reality of the child that she will have is very different to what she imagined it would be like.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Hereditary urea cycle abnormality
Abnormality of the urea cycle - hereditary; Urea cycle - hereditary abnormality
The urea cycle is a metabolic process in which waste (nitrogen) from the breakdown of dietary proteins is incorporated by the liver into a form (called urea) that can be excreted from the body in the urine.
The outcome depends on which of the urea cycle abnormalities a person has, how severe it is, how early it is discovered, and how closely the protein-restricted diet is followed.

 Medical References: Chromosomal Abnormalities   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Among the most common chromosomal abnormalities are those that involve missing or extra sex chromosomes (referred to as X and Y).
Some of these uncommon abnormalities include: deletions (small missing sections); microdeletions (a minute amount of missing material that may include only a single gene); translocations (a section of a chromosome is attached to another chromosome); and inversions (a section of chromosome is snipped out and reinserted upside down).
Whether a child has a rare or common chromosomal abnormality, it is important that he or she be evaluated as an individual.

The addition of chlorine to the WSF increased toxicity considerably, as seen through diminished fertilization, increased larval abnormalities, and delayed larval development compared to either WSF or chlorine alone.
In the cell fertilization tests, the EC50 for unchlorinated WSF ranged from 18-57%, and the EC50 for chlorine ranged from 0.8-1.5 mg/L. Combinations of chlorine and WSF resulted in almost complete infertility (15% fertilization occurred at 0.002% WSF plus 1 mg/L chlorine).
An unexpected finding was that very low concentrations of WSF (0.00001-0.000001%) resulted in increased numbers of larval abnormalities compared to the controls.
