Jasmine Ball was barely five months pregnant with twins when the labor pains jolted through her lower body. Rushed to the hospital, the doctors told her that her cervix had dilated completely. There was nothing they could do to stop the babies from coming. “I didn’t know what was going on,” said Ball, a San Francisco native. “I was in shock.” Weighing 1lb each, Da’Mya was born first and survived for one hour. Ja’Mya was a stillborn. “Da’Mya was just waiting for her little sister to come out before she died,” said Ball, who was 20 at the time. Her nightmare didn’t stop there. As she held her daughters’ bodies in her arms, a white man entered the delivery room. He could have been a pediatrician or a grief counselor – Ball isn’t sure because he never introduced himself. “He said to me ‘But you’re really young, you can have more kids,’” said Ball. “Like I had just lost an … [Read more...] about Why are so many of San Francisco’s black mothers and babies dying?
Asking doctors to carry out abortions without reason being offered cannot be described as healthcare, GPs advocating a No vote have claimed.General practitioners opposed to the repeal of the Eighth Amendment claim Irish government proposals to liberalise Ireland's termination laws would amount to "abortion on demand".As the referendum campaign entered its final hours, more than 120 GPs put their names to an open letter expressing "serious concerns" about health minister Simon Harris's plan.It entails unrestricted abortions up until 12 weeks of gestation, albeit subject to medical advice and a cooling-off period, and abortion in defined exceptional circumstances between 12 and 24 weeks.Dr Brendan Crowley, one of the signatories, said the doctors were "not expressing a position on abortion one way or the other"."However, we are united in the view that the government's proposals would open the door to abortion on demand in a similar manner to that prevailing in Britain," he said, quoting … [Read more...] about 120 GPs in Republic call for No vote in referendum
A man who repeatedly stabbed his ex after apparently mourning the loss of an unborn baby he thought was alive was jailed for 10 years today. Teesside Crown Court was told of a troubled background to the attack including alleged domestic violence and “deceit” over the tragic loss of a child. Drunken Barry Gardener, 36, went to his home of his ex-girlfriend, took a line of cocaine then attacked her without warning. He took a 17cm carving knife out of his sock, told her “I’m sorry” and stabbed her repeatedly to the stomach, chest and back. He also pressed the knife into her neck cutting her, the court heard on Wednesday. She thought she was going to die as she desperately tried to fight him off, said prosecutor Jolyon Perks. She suffered life-threatening injuries - six stab wounds to the torso and back, two to her left arm, two punctured lungs and defensive wounds to her hands. She said they had split a week before the attack on Harwal Road, Redcar at about … [Read more...] about Man stabbed his ex after ‘deceit’ over loss of unborn child
