    A former Ms South Carolina was forced to carry an unviable fetus for seven weeks when her state outlawed abortions following the overturning of Roe V Wade. Jill Hartle, 35, said it felt like a ‘dagger to the heart’ every time strangers would approach her and say she ‘looked amazing’ and asking when the baby was due. At an 18-week scan in August doctors warned her unborn baby — Ivy Grace — had the incurable heart condition Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). Most baby’s born with the condition die within days and are in terrible pain, meaning they need to be heavily sedated. At the time South Carolina had just introduced a six-week abortion ban which forbid abortions except in cases of rape, incest or danger to the mother. The 2013 Ms Carolina winner had to fly 500 miles to Washington D.C. while pregnant to get the termination at week 25.  She said she spent seven weeks in 'excruciating pain' physically and emotionally while she carried the fetus in the lead up to the abortion date. Ms Hartle said: 'Every time I felt her...
    The Pentagon will now offer funds and other support to service members who want to get an abortion and must leave the state to do so.  The new guidelines would establish travel allowances for service members who live in states where abortion is illegal but are looking to terminate their pregnancy. It would not pay for the procedures themselves - the Hyde Amendment prevents federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.  Under federal law the Pentagon's health care system can only provide abortions in the case of rape or incest or threat to the life of the mother.  The new directive by Sec. Lloyd Austin also bolsters privacy protections by giving troops until 20 weeks into a pregnancy to notify commanders and requiring commanders to show discretion and avoid 'discrimination and retaliation' against service members who choose to have an abortion.  The directive requires the department to establish uniform policy on medical leave for non-covered reproductive health care, such as abortions.  The new directive by Sec. Lloyd Austin also bolsters privacy protections by giving troops until 20 weeks...
    Carley Zeal MD, a gynecologist in southern Wisconsin, gave the unidentified woman the medication she needed to expel the fetal tissue from her uterus. The ER had refused A woman having an incomplete miscarriage was refused help by doctors at her local emergency room as they felt they had to enforce Wisconsin's 1849 ban on abortions. The unidentified woman bled for ten days after staff refused to remove the fetal tissue from her uterus. They reportedly feared they would be in violation of the 170-year-old law, which came back into effect after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade. Carley Zeal, a gynecologist at Mercyhealth Cancer Center in southern Wisconsin, gave her medication to expel the fetal tissue. Because the medicine needed to end a miscarriage is similar to that used to end a pregnancy, doctors have said they are unsure whether to hand it out post-Roe.  Zeal told the Washington Post: 'It really delayed her care.

    A data expert is warning woman to use encrypted period trackers and to only sign up for them using alias email accounts in order to protect their privacy in the wake of Roe v Wade being overturned.  Mico Yuk, a data expert for Count, said although data is good, women still need to take precautions to protect their privacy. Yuk, who has used a period tracker for six years, said period trackers follow 'overall health' and are collecting a lot data from users. Tracking apps can also trace sexual activity and whether or not women intend to become pregnant by user input.  She now recommends that women use encrypted trackers - like Period Plus or Natural Cycles - and to only use apps that explicity state they will not sell users' data. She also recommends checking phone settings to see whether an app is encrypted.  Yuk also suggested that women use an alias account when using health tracking apps and searching for healthcare questions. But more importantly, she advises to avoid using any email address that is 'connected to a search engine,' she...
    Joe Biden on Friday will sign an executive order boosting protections for abortions rights - a move that come two weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and after the president was criticized for not doing enough. The order will push to safeguard access to abortion medication and emergency contraception and to add more protections for patient privacy. Biden will also direct the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access abortion medication or to travel across state lines to receive abortion services.  And the order will increase access to legal services for the abortions rights battles expected to come.  Biden will sign the order in the Roosevelt Room of the White House later Friday morning with Vice President Kamala Harris at his side.  President Joe Biden on Friday will sign an order boosting protections for abortions rights - a move that come two weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v.

    Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), a physician, has been very quiet over the past week since the Supreme Court eliminated a woman's right to privacy over her healthcare. As the Daily Beast recalls, DesJarlais is the Republican official whose ex-wife had two abortions and he demanded his mistress to have an abortion. Yet, he maintains he's 100 percent pro-life. Politico awarded him in 2014 "the biggest hypocrite in Congress" award, pointing to his scandal-plagued life that should have ended any other political career. In 2012, the rumors began about the affairs the congressman had with co-workers and patients that were well documented in his divorce. He ultimately fell under an ethics investigation after pressuring a patient to go to Georgia to abort the pregnancy he caused. "DesJarlais claims he was trying to get her to admit she wasn’t really pregnant," Politico reported. It turns out she was actually pregnant. "DesJarlais’ lawyers fought the file’s release, even though it was a public record. The day before the election, they and Democratic attorneys still were arguing in a Chattanooga courtroom over how fast...
    Mohamed Noor, the former Minneapolis police officer who shot dead an unarmed Australian woman after she called 911 to report a disturbance outside her home in 2017, was released from prison on Monday morning.  Noor, 36, shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond on July 15, 2017, after she called 911 to report what she thought was a woman being sexually assaulted outside her home. Damond approached his patrol car after seeing Noor arrive with his partner. He told a jury that he misperceived her to be a threat, so fired his gun.  Mohamed Noor was released from prison on Monday morning, five years after shooting dead Justine Damond (right) after she called 911  He was initially found guilty of murder and manslaughter and was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years behind bars, however Minnesota's Supreme Court overturned the murder conviction last October.  Noor was resentenced to five years as a result and on Monday, he was released to serve out the remainder on probation.  The location of his incarceration was kept secret by the Minnesota Department of Corrections which claimed he was...
    A SICK monster, who raped an 11-year-old girl while wearing a wolf mask, has had his "harsh sentence" overturned. Christoph K. was sentenced to twelve years in prison followed by a move to a secure psychiatric clinic, after he pounced on his victim and dragged her into bushes before covering her face with her jacket during the vile ordeal. 2Christoph K. was jailed for raping an 11-year-old girl while wearing a wolf maskCredit: Newsflash 2The perpetrator will now face a retrial because his sentence was considered too harshCredit: Rainer Fromm / BILD But now the Federal Court of Justice - Germany's highest court of civil and criminal jurisdiction - has overturned the guilty verdict because it considered his sentence to be too severe, given the time he would have to spend in the psychiatric ward. The 46-year-old electrician will now face a full retrial. In the first trial, the child and her parents were spared being asked to give evidence because K. confessed in the hope of being given a smaller sentence. It is not yet known whether...
    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has promised that her city will be an abortion “safe haven,” should Roe v. Wade actually be overturned by the Supreme Court. After announcing her “Justice for All Pledge” — which includes $500,000 in funds to help provide abortion access — Lightfoot, a Democrat, appeared on MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson Reports to further discuss her plans. “Fundamentally, it reaffirms Chicago as a welcoming city, a city that doesn’t discriminate, and a city that’s going to stand with women,” she said of the pledge. The mayor said the city would need to be an “oasis” in the midwest if Roe v. Wade is overturned and multiple states enforce “trigger laws” that would restrict abortion access or ban it altogether. “Wisconsin, Missouri, potentially Michigan, Indiana. I think the list is long,” she said, “and Chicago is going to be an oasis in the midwest and we have to be ready.” The initial $500,000 investment, Lightfoot added, is simply a “down payment” for the future, explaining more funds will be provided by the city. “$500,000 is simply a...
    Max Verstappen's 2021 Formula One title win will not be overturned despite the FIA as good as admitting his victory was unjust by sacking race director Michael Masi. Lewis Hamilton missed out on a record-breaking eighth crown in the most contentious circumstances as the late withdrawal of the safety car by Masi - coupled with the unlapping of five cars positioned between the Brit and Verstappen - at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December allowed the Dutchman to pass the Brit on newer tyres and claim the championship for the first time.   After a two-month deliberation process, new FIA president Mohammed ben Sulayem confirmed on Thursday that Masi has left his role as director after three years, while also announcing changes to how grands prix for the upcoming season.   Mercedes ditched their plans to appeal against Masi's decision in December as Hamilton told his team that he did not want his eighth title to be won in court.  Michael Masi was sacked as Formula One race director on Thursday after December's farce Lewis Hamilton was robbed of an eighth...
    The Studio Theatre in Little Rock, ARJennifer Schlesinger | CNBC After months of limbo and mounting debts, the Studio Theatre in Little Rock, Arkansas, got some welcome news from the Small Business Administration in early February. The small nonprofit theater has had its denial for aid through the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program overturned. The SVOG program is a $16 billion fund that was created to sustain the live entertainment and arts industry in the face of severe losses due to the pandemic. While the program has helped many, it's also caused an outcry from businesses who believe they were eligible for aid and wrongfully denied. The Studio Theatre was featured in a CNBC investigation in early January. The theater had shuttered in March 2020 due to the pandemic and did not fully reopen for a year. It is facing debts accrued for rent, insurance and more. The theater said it was initially denied a grant by the SBA in July 2021 because it does not pay its performers. But as a nonprofit, according to the agency's own guidelines, that...

    A FEDERAL judge in California overturned the state's three-decade-old ban on assault rifles - saying that owning an AR-15 is like having a "Swiss Army knife". U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez ruled that California's definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding residents of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and backed up by the Supreme Court. 2A longstanding ban on assault weapons in California was lifted on Friday following a ruling by a federal judgeCredit: Copyright 2016 The Associated Press.

    In a Tuesday appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) ripped Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her rhetoric amid the trial against former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was found guilty the day before on three counts. McCarthy acknowledged that the justice system worked in bringing justice to Floyd, but suggested an appeal over her threat of violence if the wrong verdict were reached could overturn the decision. “[E]very Democrat and Speaker Pelosi had the opportunity to condemn this violent rhetoric,” McCarthy outlined. “Instead, they condoned it, which only makes the House of Representatives and the Justice Department weaker. This isn’t political. We’ve watched Maxine Waters say this before. If you see them at a gas station, you see them in a restaurant, get in their face. Tell them they’re not wanted. She travels to a place that is not her district right before a jury is going to hear the final verdict, and what does she do? She brings violence where the judge himself said it was...
