the trump administration threatens to imperil women’s health worldwide


some say the “mexico city policy” — a restriction on u.s. funds to international organizations that provide, advise or discuss abortions — looks like a game of ping-pong. republican administrations implement the rule, and democratic ones volley it back. if so, president trump has come to the table with a tennis racket.president ronald reagan first issued what’s known among its opponents as the “global gag rule” on abortion, which is meant to ensure that taxpayer dollars do not subsidize abortion indirectly by aiding organizations that provide or promote it. but reagan limited its reach to family-planning istance, mostly provided through the u.s. agency for international development. president bill clinton undid the rule. when president george w. bush put it back, he added a provision to cl

taller, stronger fence design approved for white house


washington — a planning agency has approved the design of a taller, stronger fence around the white house. the secret service says thursday’s approval by the national capital planning commission means the agency can move forward with contracting to build the new fence. the changes were proposed after a series of people managed to scale the current 7-foot-tall barrier. in the most serious security breach, a man got over the fence in 2014 and ran deep inside the white house while carrying a folding knife before he was caught. no one was injured. the new metal fence will be 11 feet, 7 inches tall, and the secret service says it will have “anti-climb and intrusion detection technology.” the agency has not disclosed its cost.scott walker advises white house on gutting federal unions constructi

why families should step in to help as inmates step out of prison


you would think that someone who spent years behind bars would be ecstatic on the day they finally gain their freedom, but in reality that day can be as unnerving as it is joyous. leaving prison is a scary time for most inmates because often they are walking headlong into a world where they have no money, no job prospects and no place to call home. such a radical change in daily circumstances can be jarring. perhaps that's one reason why, within five years of release, about three-fourths of inmates are arrested again. how can those numbers be turned around? many possibilities exist, but one thing that helps immensely is support from families. the inmate's loved ones can take several easy steps that can make the return to society much smoother and more successful, including:prison inmate u
