first_imgMetcatorNet 31 July 2013THE NEWS: Illinois Supreme Court Backs Parental Notification for Abortions The Illinois Supreme Court recently upheld a ruling that requires doctors to notify parents of girls younger than 17 years old if those girls seek abortions. “Under the law,” reports the Chicago Tribune, “a parent or a guardian would have to be notified at least 48 hours before an abortion was performed on a minor except in cases of a medical emergency, sexual abuse, neglect or physical abuse.” The ruling was first passed in 1995 but never took effect.The ACLU decried the decision, saying that it “jeopardizes the health and safety of young women.” New research into parental notification laws, however, indicates that the opposite may in fact be true.THE RESEARCH: Parental Notification and Reduced Suicide LevelsMuch to the dismay of ardent feminists, many states already have on the books so-called parental involvement laws, decrees which require a girl to notify a parent, guardian, or other approved adult or family member before she can obtain an abortion.A new study by Joseph Sabia and Daniel Rees, researchers from San Diego State University and the University of Colorado, Denver, gives further evidence in support of such laws. States that have parental notification laws, they find, also see a drop in the suicide rate of girls ages 15 through 17.(Source: Bryce J. Christensen and Nicole M.

first_imgManchester United defender Luke Shaw is expected to have a second operation on his broken leg on Friday, Press Association Sport understands. ”He will not play in the group phase I think. I hope he can play again this season.” Former Coventry defender David Busst suffered a horrific leg break against United at Old Trafford in 1996 after colliding with Denis Irwin and Brian McClair and retired from the game a few months later. Busst needed 26 operations and contracted the MRSA virus but he is confident Shaw will make a full recovery. He told The Sun: ”It wasn’t the actual fractures that stopped me from playing, it was the infections. ”But so long as it’s a clean break and there is no infection, there shouldn’t be a major issue for Luke.” Two orthopaedic surgeons and a trauma specialist conducted an operation on Shaw’s leg on the night of the match. United declined to comment any further on the matter, but it is understood that Shaw will have a second operation at the Dutch hospital as part of his recovery on Friday. Shaw will remain in Eindhoven until United’s medical staff are happy for him to come home. United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward visited Shaw the morning after the match and the player’s parents are understood to be with him now. Shaw is said to have suffered a “clean break” of the right leg, which makes it more likely his recovery will be quicker. The player himself has not set a target for his comeback date, but Louis van Gaal said after the match that he could return by March. ”I am not a doctor so I cannot say that, but when you have a double fracture it is I think until six months,” the United manager said. ”It is about how it develops. You can never say that in advance. Shaw was taken to the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on the outskirts of Eindhoven on Tuesday night after breaking his right leg in two places during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV . The England left-back broke his tibia and fibula following a challenge by PSV defender Hector Moreno in the 15th minute. Press Associationlast_img read more
