Photos by Gerry Ellis from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in Kenya’s Tsavo East National Park. Here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. The elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.
When elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. Grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. But as Dame Daphne Sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”
Approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. With an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of Africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.
CBC’s The Nature of Things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. You can foster an elephant with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust online here.

"If I perform this emergency abortion I’m a murderer!!!"
No, bro. You’re a murderer if you let your pregnant patient die in your office because you refused them an emergency abortion.
As a medical professional, let me say this: If you will not put your patient first—if you will not perform life saving medical care because of your own beliefs—stay the fuck out of the field.
We have enough abusive and ableist people in the field as it is.
Any doctor who chose to allow a pregnant patient to die rather than perform an abortion that could save their life not only shouldn’t be allowed to be a doctor anymore, they should be imprisoned for murder
