    A woman fighting a terminal form of bone cancer is trying to raise money to help pay bills with a few weekend garage sales, but the city of Salem says she’s breaking the law and is shutting her down. Jan Cline had no idea, but the city of Salem has a clear law that states a person can only have three yard sales a year. Cline has been selling her stuff in the backyard for a few weekends and said she thought she’d be fine by keeping the sale out of everyone’s way. “It’s a struggle,” Cline says. “It’s a...

She just came home from the hospital three weeks ago.

    CAMP FOSTER,OKINAWA,Japan (Feb. 24, 2006) -- Doctors from U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa aren’t used to making house calls or traveling thousands of miles to operate on a patient.

The procedure required a neurosurgeon, but Guam had none on the island. Rivet, one of two Medical Corps...

But when she is having a period, and not ready for pregnancy, the smell changes to an acute, repellent odour. The researchers studied 12 women who wore armpit pads for...

Dr. Daniel Lozano, from the UCSD Regional Burn Center, said, "She lost skin in her entire body. It's rather dramatic to really see this coming off in sheets." Even the membrane covering her internal organs -- her eyes, mouth, and...

    One in six still feels a woman's place is at home By Sarah Womack, Social Affairs Correspondent (Filed: 09/12/2003) One in six people still believes a woman's place is in the home, according to an authoritative survey of social attitudes funded by the Government. The figure represents a dramatic fall since 1983, when 25 per cent thought women should be full-time mothers, but it represents a "sizeable minority", says the National Centre for Social Research. Most of those who held traditional views were grandparents struggling to look after grandchildren while their daughters went out to work. The survey's findings come...

  • Pro-Choice Scriptural Base is Bogus

    The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is a misnomer and theological contradiction, that is, if defined in biblical terms. Yet the hoax continues. With that, the group denounces recently President Bush’s administration health care policies as "extreme". Perhaps some religious persons are duped by the organization's fabrication. But the truly biblically knowledgeable know a lie when they hear a lie. Rev. James Lamb, executive director of National Lutherans for Life, says it all when he states that "once you lose your scriptural base, you can justify anything. They’re playing to what they think the culture wants to hear." What is...
