Life Links 9/9/10

A man from North Carolina named Justin Moose has been arrested for allegedly providing information on bomb making to a person he believed would bomb an abortion clinic.
Justin Carl Moose, 26, of Concord was arrested Tuesday on charges of providing information related to the making, use or manufacture of an explosive, destructive device or weapon of mass destruction to a person he believed was planning to bomb a women's health care clinic, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of North Carolina.

A criminal complaint alleges that Moose used the social networking site Facebook as a platform to advocate violence against women's healthcare clinics, specifically where abortions were performed and employees at such clinics.

The complaint alleges that last week, Moose spoke and met with a confidential source and provided detail and instruction about various explosives or incendiary methods for the purpose of enabling the source to destroy a North Carolina abortion clinic.

Chen Guangcheng has been released in China but his village has apparently been put on lockdown.
Controversy has returned to the village of Dongshigu, and with it, a security crackdown. The source of both: the release of Chen Guangcheng, a blind, self-taught lawyer who drew worldwide attention to his rural neighbors' stories of forced sterilizations and late-term abortions at the hands of local authorities.....

Villagers said they are alternately thankful for Chen's work and fearful of being associated with him. Reporters from the Associated Press, who tried to enter the village on Thursday, said men in plainclothes came running, scuffled with the reporters and pursued them at high speed as they left the area. Local authorities did not return calls.

Seven women convicted of "homicide against a relative" in Mexico were released after the state of Guanjuato enacted legal reforms. The women claim they had miscarriages but prosecutors "maintained to the end that the women's trials were fair, that their babies were born alive but died because of mistreatment or lack of care."
