TIMELINE: Abortion Restrictions In Missouri On A Possible Path To The U.S. Supreme Court

Link - A federal appeals court ruling in Missouri last week significantly escalated the legal battle over abortion rights, reduced the number of clinics performing surgical abortions in the state to one - in St. Louis - and may be the decision that puts abortion rights back in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Prevention Is Right Answer to Assisted-Suicide Requests

Link - We only seek to prevent some suicides these days. If a suicidal person lives in a state where assisted suicide is legal, and is qualified to receive prescribed poison with which to overdose, they will probably never receive prevention interventions.
