    California’s wrenching yearlong legislative debate over the right to die culminated Monday with Gov. Jerry Brown signing into law a bill making California the fifth state to permit physician-assisted suicide for the terminally ill. As a Democrat and former Catholic seminarian, Mr. Brown was caught between two opposing sides of the right-to-die debate, and had given little indication of whether he would sign the bill before it reached his desk in early September. “In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death,” Mr. Brown said in his signing statement....

Despite being heavily armed, the 26-year-old apparently turned one of his weapons on himself rather than engage the police in a firefight

    KABUL – U.S. forces may have mistakenly bombed a hospital in northern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least 19 people, including three children, in an incident that will likely raise new questions about the scope of American involvement in the country’s 14-year war. In a statement, Doctors Without Borders said an airstrike “partially destroyed” its trauma hospital in Kunduz, where the Afghan military has been trying to drive Taliban fighters from the city. The airstrike killed at least 12 Doctors Without Borders staff members, the group said. Three children were also reportedly killed. At least 37 other people were seriously...

An Asian woman has asked white people to pay for her therapy because she claims living with them makes her ill. Rinna Rem, from Portland, Oregon, says the stress of being Thai-Cambodian in a predominantly white city means she has to spend $100 a month on treatment. After suffering ‘institutional racism’ for most of her life, she decided to launch...

In a stunning reversal of decades of copyright claims, the judge ruled that Warner/Chappell never had the right to charge for the use of the "Happy Birthday To You" song. Warner had been enforcing a copyright since 1988, when it bought Birch Tree Group, the successor to Clayton F. Summy Co., which claimed the original disputed copyright. Judge George...

Yet, the reaction from police and authorities was to question why the gun was so easily accessible. Police Sargent Brian Schellman told KTVI in St. Louis: “Just seems at this point that any...

    In an op-ed in the Washington Post, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards argues that the undercover videos showing their top officials negotiating the sale of babies victimized in abortion are nothing more than an attack on women. She carefully sticks to her company’s talking points are reiterates that Planned Parenthood practices are completely legal. In fact, in the op-ed Richards goes as far to say that the videos have nothing to do with her organization. Instead, they are a grand scheme by “extremists” to block access to abortion. She writes, “These attacks are not about us. They are about the...

The articles in question state that the US, world powers and the...

    Donald Trump knows how to hit his cue. On Friday, the Huffington Post announced that it would no longer cover Mr. Trump as part of its 2016 GOP presidential primary coverage. Instead, it was moving him to the entertainment section. “Trump’s campaign is a sideshow,” the liberal news outlet said. “We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.” The following day, the reality TV star jumped the shark with another outlandish statement designed to attract media attention — an...
