In response to the failed attempt to override New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's veto of family planning funds, a Planned Parenthood in Cherry Hill is closing.

Judge Mike Caldwell has ruled that the Louisiana health department can't enforce their recent suspension order of an abortion clinic's license.
DHH spokeswoman Lisa Faust said department attorneys will review the transcript of the hearing and make recommendations on how to proceed.

“We are disappointed that this abortion facility can remain open while we go through the process of revoking its license,’’ she said. “We want to assure Louisiana women that we will continue to fight to protect them from unsafe abortion facilities.’’

Researchers hoping to use embryonic stem cells to treat spinal cord injuries have decided that jockey Michael Martinez is not a suitable patient for the procedure because his injury is too severe. Dr. David Seftel, a track physician, then claims that adult stem cell research which has actually been used to treat humans is not "as promising" as embryonic stem cell research, which has been used to treat rats.

A California man is facing the possibility of 25 years in prison after being "found guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of attempted murder."
Oxnard resident Jaime Solis Olmos, 22, is facing 25 years to life in prison for paying two men $500 to stage a robbery and punch his pregnant girlfriend so she would have a miscarriage.

Monday, a Ventura County Superior Court Judge found Olmos guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of attempted murder.

Olmos reportedly did not want to support a child or his girlfriend, Justina Cornejo, after she told him she would not get an abortion....

n January 2008, while the couple was parked in a car at a Newbury Park overlook, the men attacked the woman, punching her in the face and stomach.

Cornejo later gave birth to a baby boy, who is now a healthy 2-year-old.
