    A damning report by the Health and Disabilities Commissioner has recommended an audit of the services provided by the country's top abortion clinic.

The woman, whose identity is protected, only discovered the intrauterine contraceptive device after going for medical tests when she tried repeatedly and was unable to fall pregnant three years later. Investigation by the Health and Disability Commissioner has found a doctor at the Epsom Day Clinic mistakenly inserted the contraceptive...

    The head of the agency responsible for overseeing the troubled repeatedly refused to disclose how many people have enrolled in ObamaCare -- during a hearing where she did not deny that officials have that information. Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, testified Tuesday before the House Ways and Means Committee.

    Centrelink has admitted it unwittingly allowed two of Australia's most notorious paedophiles to get back in touch with each other. Dennis Ferguson wrote to Centrelink asking for his contact details to be passed on to former partner in crime Alexandria Brookes.

As part of his parole conditions Brookes was banned from having any contact with Ferguson or other paedophiles. Centrelink will today shut down the In Touch program which gave Ferguson's contact details to Brookes. It is the latest controversy surrounding Ferguson, who was...

But even in the face of that criticism, Borgsdorf's future appears secure. After questioning his leadership abilities at...
