    Michelle Obama says she felt alone after a miscarriage 20 years ago and she and Barack Obama underwent fertility treatments to conceive their two daughters, according to her upcoming memoir. In some of her most extensive public comments on her White House years, the former first lady also lets her fury fly over President Donald Trump's "bigotry and xenophobia" — dangerous, deliberate rhetoric, she wrote, that risked her family's safety. "For this," she writes, "I'd never forgive him." But it's her deeply personal account of her marriage to the future president that shed new light on the Ivy League-educated couple's...

    On September 8, 2018, Chilean women stood outside in a peaceful protest, letting the world listen in as they broadcasted the heartbeats of their preborn children. When Colectivo Por Las Dos Vidas: Ola Celeste Chile posted the women’s video, it was paired with these words: “The voice of the heart does not need explanation. Children for birth speak for themselves, we must only hear them. Chile is #porlas2vidas (for two lives) .” The square where these women met was quickly filled up with excited people, waving and wearing blue scarves. Each one was proclaiming that it is absolutely possible —...

    Fast food company Burger King Russia has been forced to apologize after an advertisement offered Russian women the chance to win $47,000 and free Whoppers for life if they got impregnated by a World Cup player. The short-lived campaign was promoted in Russia on Tuesday via social media platform VK -- Russia's equivalent of Facebook -- before being pulled down after a flurry of angry responses from the public. Burger King Russia then released an apology on VK, saying they had removed all materials related to the campaign as it was 'insulting."

    Here’s a brief update to the Pregnant Ranger story posted on US Defense Watch yesterday: A source at the Mountain Ranger Camp at Dahlonega has informed USDW that a female Ranger School student is indeed pregnant. Apparently, this student and her boyfriend are in the same Ranger School class (yes, Virginia, it’s not your grandfather’s, your father’s or even your older brother’s Army anymore). Both students were recycled during the Benning phase. While in the ‘Gulag’ awaiting the beginning of the Benning phase recycle, she got pregnant. She’s now at the Mountain Phase, and as of today, still has not...

    Tweet A Mexican woman who is pregnant with her eighth child may be one of the oldest women on record to give birth. The Daily Mail reports Maria de la Luz, 70, of Mazatlan, Mexico told journalists that she is six months pregnant with a baby girl. De la Luz would not say if she underwent fertility treatments, but photos of her home suggest she may be too poor to pay for in vitro fertilization or another type of fertility treatment, which typically are expensive. She did show ultrasound images of her unborn baby to journalists. She said she first...

    A few years ago, I spoke with a young man preparing to get married. His aunt told him that she thought he and his fiancée were too financially-strapped to have a child, and that it wouldn’t be fair to bring up a baby in poverty. Keenly aware of his joblessness and his minuscule bank account, he concluded she was probably right. The young man and his fiancée were ready to tie the knot in a few months and they expected that she would be at the infertile phase of her cycle around the time of their honeymoon, so they would...

    A First Dates hopeful was left speechless when his dinner guest revealed she was six months pregnant over dinner.

Halfway through their meal Lyn dropped the bombshell that she was expecting a child with an anonymous sperm donor after deciding she no longer wanted to wait for the right man. Steve was momentarily caught off guard but quickly regained composure, praising Lyn for making the tough decision to have a child...

"Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce," a source told Page Six. "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end. She has left him even though they have two children together."

    Three pro-life, faith-based nonprofit clinics in California are suing the state’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, for infringing on their First Amendment rights. These clinics — LivingWell Medical Clinic, Inc.; Pregnancy Care Center of the North Coast, Inc.; and Confidence Pregnancy Center, Inc. — offer free unplanned-pregnancy-related services to hundreds of women each year. It would be against their deeply held beliefs to advocate abortion. But California law requires them to. Since 2015, the California Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency (FACT) Act has required certain pregnancy clinics to notify their patients that the state offers free and low-cost abortions...
