Planned Parenthood boldly resists anti-abortion attack

first_imgPlanned Parenthood, the nation’s largest provider of comprehensive reproductive health care for poor women, took a bold stand of resistance Aug. 19 against the Trump-Pence administration’s latest volley in the war on women.It refused to go along with the Department of Health and Human Services’ new “domestic gag rule,” effective Aug. 19, which now requires that all health care participants in the $286 million Title X program not refer patients to abortion providers. And if facilities do offer abortion care, that must be physically and financially separated from other services.One of many protests to defend the right to reproductive health care.This is a far-right, ideologically biased, racist, patriarchal attack on Title X and the 4 million poor women and gender-oppressed people—​predominantly people of color, youth, rural residents, migrants, survivors of domestic violence and people with disabilities—​who receive health care from Planned Parenthood.Planned Parenthood has been part of Title X since its inception in 1970. It is the largest provider, serving about 40 percent—​more than 1.5 million women and gender-oppressed people—​of the 4 million patients who receive birth control and pregnancy tests, as well as screenings for sexually transmitted infections and breast and cervical cancer. The Guttmacher Institute estimates that Title X prevents thousands of unplanned pregnancies each year—​822,000 in 2015 alone. Planned Parenthood receives about $60 million annually through Title X and $500 million from Medicaid, a joint federal and state health care program for poor people. (For more background, see WW articles posted March 5 and 15, June 30 and July 21.)‘We will not be bullied’“[D]ue to an unethical and dangerous gag rule, the Trump administration has forced Planned Parenthood grantees out of Title X,” stated Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president and CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation, at an Aug. 19 press conference.The DHHS responded “with sneering glee” by blaming the organization for “abandoning their obligations to serve their patients” under the eviscerated program, which now violates the doctor-patient relationship. (Guardian, Aug. 22)McGill Johnson asserted: “Planned Parenthood is still open. … [W]hile the Trump administration may have given up on you, we never will.” However, she noted that patients may have to wait longer for appointments and pay higher fees.But she stressed that the gag rule “would make it impossible for us to uphold that commitment. … We will not be bullied into withholding abortion information from our patients.”And “bullied” is the name of the Trump-Pence game. The administration’s ultimate goal is to have the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, the decision that legalized abortion in 1973, and the new rule is a giant step toward that end. It also helps reinforce the abortion stigma.Another aim of the administration’s game is to significantly change the purpose of Title X—​to provide comprehensive family planning—​so that now faith-based groups that oppose abortion and contraception are eligible for funding. Obria, a network of anti-abortion “counseling centers” which does not provide contraception or medical care, received a Title X grant this year to the tune of $1.7 million.The DHHS rule is being challenged in court by Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, other legal and medical organizations, and more than 20 states. But a federal appeals court ruled in July that the policy change could take effect while legal cases were pending. Although Planned Parenthood and other providers wanted to accept Title X funding until the legal challenges were settled, DHHS demanded all or nothing by the Aug. 19 deadline.Illinois, Maryland and Washington state have volunteered to fund clinics that drop out of Title X, and governors of New York, Hawaii and others are exploring how to do that. Meanwhile, reproductive justice groups around the country are rallying behind Planned Parenthood’s decision.‘Coercion by the government’Jessica Pinckney, vice president of In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, nailed the Trump-Pence rule as “coercion by the government” which will “disproportionately affect the health and lives of Black women across the country.” (Rewire News, Aug. 19)What kind of government deliberately limits access to essential health care to a sizable portion of the population? The same kind of government that, while professing to be “pro-life,” forces migrant children of color into squalid cages under inhumane conditions. And a government that allows 16 million kids to go to bed hungry every year.The original Title X program, instituted in 1970, was a progressive cover for the Nixon administration while it waged war against the Vietnamese people. Now under the Trump-Pence government, obvious racism, misogyny and bigotry are ordered by an increasingly desperate, dead-end capitalist system that assures profits for the rich and hopes to scare the rest of us into submission. But resistance is rising—​against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, wage theft, sexual harassment, climate change and more. The demand for women’s equality in all aspects of life is growing stronger day by day.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

House Consideration of WRRDA Now in Question

first_img With the passing of longtime Florida Representative Bill Young – the timeline for House Consideration of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act is in doubt. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said over the weekend that the House would consider the bill Wednesday and Thursday. The House will now cancel its Thursday session for Young’s funeral and it’s not clear if WRRDA will come up Wednesday or not. Still – all expectations are that the measure will get full House consideration yet this month. The bipartisan bill would reauthorize the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop, maintain and support the nation’s vital port and waterways infrastructure needs; and support effective and targeted flood protection and environmental restoration needs. Home Indiana Agriculture News House Consideration of WRRDA Now in Question House Consideration of WRRDA Now in Question SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 22, 2013 Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter The Senate approved its Water Resources Development Act on a strong bipartisan vote of 83 to 14 back in May. The measure seeks to authorize funding to modernize the nation’s locks and dams, provide upkeep for rivers and coasts, assist with flood protection and restore key environmental areas. The biggest difference between the House and Senate measures is that the Senate bill would leave approval for water-related projects to the executive branch – while the House would require congressional approval.

It appears that though the Court had perused the record and passed a final order that the petitioner himself was not heard while passing the said order. In view of the aforesaid, in order to give opportunity of hearing to the petitioner, we consider it expedient in the interest of justice to recall the order dated 29.7.2020 and to restore the petition to its original number for hearing before the appropriate Bench,” the Division Bench comprised of Justices Pankaj Mithal and Dr. Yogendra Kumar Srivastava said. Advocate Vijay Kumar Srivastava lost his son in July 2016 to an electric shock from an electric pole situated in the campus of ABES Engineering College, Ghaziabad. He had moved the High Court seeking issuance of show cause notice to the Government of India, as to why extension of approval of the said College may not be cancelled for not fulfilling the norms laid down by AICTE. In his plea, Mr. Srivastava informed the Court that he had first submitted his grievance to the office of the Prime Minister, disappointed whereof, he turned to the High Court. He had submitted that the Ministry of Human Resource Development had responded to his representation in ‘inhuman language’ and he was ‘hurt’ by the stance that ‘a College cannot be closed permanently on account of any accidental death of a student’. The High Court had dismissed his plea vide order dated July 29, stating that the decision of the Ministry was based on a report submitted by a two-member Committee which examined the matter in consultation with AICTE. It noted that the Ministry had expressed grief and pain on the death of the petitioner’s son and the letter was not inappropriate. It had observed, “The letter of the Under Secretary has to be read as a whole and not in piecemeal. The reading of a sentence of the letter out of context from the facts narrated in the letter otherwise may convey a different meaning. A reading of the said letter as a whole would reveal that no inappropriate language has been used which may be said to be offending though we understand the emotions and the sentiments of the petitioner who has lost his son to have felt a little annoyed with the same.” On Thursday, the matter was again listed before the same bench to hear the recall petition. Noting that the Petitioner was not able to present his case due to the pandemic, the Court agreed to reopen the matter and directed that it be listed before an appropriate Bench.

Why Texas woman lied to police about her alleged cop killer son for days: ‘Because I am a mom’

first_imgHarris County Sheriff(HOUSTON) — A Houston mother was held on $50,000 bond Friday for allegedly lying for days about her son’s whereabouts after he fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run that killed a veteran sergeant, authorities said.Tiffany Henderson was arrested and charged by Harris County prosecutors on Thursday with hindering apprehension after telling investigators that she did not know where her son, Tavores Dewayne Henderson, was located.When investigators asked the 37-year-old mother why she continued to “lie” to them, she responded: “Because I am a mom,” according to the criminal complaint.Her boyfriend, 33-year-old Geoffrey Wheeler, was also charged with hindering prosecution.During a traffic stop on Tuesday evening on the 2000 block of San Sebastian Court, Nassau Bay Sgt. Kalia Sullivan and another officer attempted to arrest the 21-year-old who had an active warrant for allegedly assaulting a family member in February. Tavores Dewayne Henderson managed to break away from the two officers, get behind the wheel of his car and allegedly run over Sullivan.Sullivan was taken to a nearby hospital where she died from her injuries. The 16-year veteran was 43.Meanwhile, the alleged fugitive contacted his mother and Wheeler, who picked him up and drove him more than 30 miles away to The Sterling Inn hotel in West Houston, Texas, to hide out, according to the criminal complaint.Investigators went to Tiffany Henderson’s home early Wednesday morning, where she denied knowing where he was or who he is, prosecutors said at a press conference on Thursday.Police said the mother and Wheeler were seen on surveillance video leaving the hotel.The manhunt increased on Wednesday as a “Blue Alert” was issued, and the reward money for information leading to his arrest was raised to $20,000.Tiffany Henderson gave her condolences to Sullivan’s family and her concern that her son would get killed or hurt by police during an interview with ABC station KTRK in Houston on Thursday.“At this moment, I just want to get my son to safety and all precautions to be followed,” said Henderson, who gave an anecdote about a conversation with an unidentified “guy” that was aware of her son’s whereabouts. “I want my son to turn himself in.”Police the received a tip that Tavores Dewayne Henderson was in a house on the 4200 block of Heritage Trail Drive in Houston.As law enforcement surrounded the house, “(Tiffany Henderson) informed officers that she wanted the opportunity to tell her son, Tavores Henderson, to surrender. (Tiffany Henderson) was allowed to speak to Tavores Henderson and he responded by surrendering himself,” according to the criminal complaint.The alleged cop killer was taken into custody Thursday afternoon “without incident,” police said.The mother, who has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 2001, was held on a $50,000 bond at a preliminary court appearance Friday morning, according to court records.Wheeler, who is the alleged getaway driver, told investigators that he lied to “because I was scared,” according to the criminal complaint. He posted a $10,000 bond, according to court records.Both mom and Wheeler are expected back in court on Dec. 16.Before a judge saw Henderson for the underlying case that escalated the traffic stop to an attempted arrest, officers restrained his wrist behind his back Sullivan’s handcuffs. The alleged cop killer was held on $150,000 for the assault charge and is expected back in court on Saturday for the upgraded capital murder charge, according to court records.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

ANCHOR BABY BATTLE

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Raging Moderate by Will DurstPrepare for earth-shattering news – immigration has become a key issue in the race for the Republican nomination. Yes. Again. It’s what folks in the garden industry call a perennial. Or rather, biennial, as it happens like clockwork every year ending in an even number. It’s as predictable as fruit flies in the dumpster behind a produce store on garbage day.Every election cycle, the GOP energizes its base by sounding the newcomer alarm. This proud, honored American tradition dates back to the Iroquois, “Can’t let those damn Europeans in, they’ll ruin everything.”Donald Trump dominated the early rounds of the Xenophobic Grand Nationals, vowing to deport all 11,000,000 undocumented residents. Which, according to immigration officials, at a rate of 400,000 a year, would take 27 and a half years, just in time for Sofia Vergara’s 71st birthday. It makes you think “Make America Great Again” is shorthand for “Make America White Again.”This is in addition to the Trump Wall, which is guaranteed to be “tremendous and beautiful.” But how the developer plans to build a 20 foot-high, 1952 mile-long wall on the Mexican border without using Mexican labor remains a mystery. What’s the plan here? Draft housewives from San Diego? “Marilyn, hand me that masonry trowel would you? And grab some spiral shank nails, we need to buttress that stanchion.”It took the Chinese multiple centuries to build the Great Wall, requiring the forced labor of millions of peasants. Is it just me, or does importing millions of Chinese peasants to build a wall to keep out Mexican immigrants seem counter-productive?But the big fat ugly dispute right now is between those rutting buck Senators, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Rightly calculating there is only room for one establishment candidate not named Bush, the two are butting heads over past, present and future statements, each claiming the other is soft, softer, softest on illegals.That’s right, two sons of Cuban immigrants are locking antlers over who is more anti-immigrant. You can’t make stuff up like this. In the Republican version of West Side Story, the Sharks rumble the Sharks.Back in 2013, as a founding member of the Gang of Eight, Rubio helped draft a bill that granted undocumented workers the right to remain in the country. Lambasted by hard liners as… “amnesty,” the Florida Senator immediately saw the error of his ways, and voted against the very bill he co- sponsored. So it seems he’s getting the hang of this whole leadership thing.Texas Senator Ted Cruz is fixated like a dog with a chew toy on the loss of jobs and laughingly envisions immigrants crossing with journalism degrees, implying that journalism degrees are a pathway to jobs. Hah. Talk about out of touch. Nobody bothers to mention that if you’re losing your job to someone with a 5th grade education who doesn’t speak English, maybe immigration isn’t your biggest problem.So the race for the nomination comes down to which of these two 44-year-old anchor babies is best able to convince the American people that he can make this country great again by getting back all those fruit picking jobs we’ve dreamed of all our lives. “Working outdoors. Sleeping on the ground. Just like camping, only different.”last_img read more
