    Ella Rasmussen’s doctors started to prod her about children when she turned 30. She was single, suffered from endometriosis, and contemplated a hysterectomy. After several years, the nudges took hold. Because she wasn’t a good candidate to freeze only her eggs, she was advised to undergo IVF and freeze fertilized embryos. (Snip) "Her doctor made a recommendation: go American."

    A Georgia woman is behind bars after she allegedly shared pictures of her deceased newborn boy with multiple people and told her ex-boyfriend she hid the body in her freezer, according to multiple outlets.

Her ex-boyfriend had called authorities to report she’d allegedly admitted to putting her dead newborn in her freezer earlier in June, according to the Atlantic Journal-Constitution. The Cobb County Medical Examiner’s Office told the Journal-Constitution that it’s unclear whether the baby was born dead or alive,...

    Melvin Castro and his trainee, Deputy Omar Sanchez, turned onto the 2100 block of Grace Avenue in Carson. There, in the middle of the street, a male adult frantically jumped and wailed his arms in the sky in a desperate attempt to get their attention. Deputies Castro and Sanchez sped to the frantic man, quickly parking the patrol car, and followed behind the father who was desperately guiding them to his dying baby girl. At the rear of the house, deputies Castro and Sanchez were met by a hysterical mother who ran towards them, clutching her one year-old baby in...

    It seems tougher by the hour for Planned Parenthood to rationalize its long-held motto, “Care. No Matter What.” That steep task just got harder this week, amid revelations that a shuttered Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Iowa broke client confidentiality by leaving behind personal health information (PHI) records for over 2,500 of its former clients. In early May, a Dubuque office affiliated with Planned Parenthood of the Heartland completed the sale of its property to Clarity Clinic, a local pregnancy help organization, and left behind a closet full of patient files that took Planned Parenthood staff 10 days to come...

    Top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s lawyer for the email investigation has a glaring conflict-of-interest in the case: he was an Obama administration “point person” on Benghazi who dealt with classified information and exchanged redacted emails with Hillary Clinton. Miguel Rodriguez of the Washington law firm Bryan Cave is part of Abedin’s big-money legal team and is already handling communications with the government on her behalf during the scandal. But Rodriguez brings some personal baggage to his role as Abedin’s counsel ... Before joining Bryan Cave, Rodriguez served as deputy assistant secretary at Hillary Clinton’s State Department; then he was...

    Naomi Tomky was still laid out on the operating table after an emergency C-section when the earliest pangs of regret kicked in. “The baby was being lifted over my head,” the 34-year-old freelance writer remembers, “and the anesthesiologist was like, ‘what’s her name?’ I started explaining and was like, oh God, what have I done?” Tomky’s now 8-month-old daughter is Tove (pronounced TOH-vah), a Swedish moniker that’s typically said like TOO-vah, but in this case, the expectant parents from Seattle changed the pronunciation for a twist. “My husband has Swedish heritage and then Tova, or Tovah, is a common Hebrew...

    Kerri Rochelle Green was evicted from her Houston apartment in March. Weeks later, on April 23, a manager at the complex made a horrifying discovery when she went into her old unit to make sure it was empty. Green's two young children had apparently been left inside the hot, trash-filled apartment, according to KPRC. The 2-year-old boy and the 10-month-old girl were each wrapped in several blankets and were found lying in the same crib, without access to food or water. The malnourished-looking boy appeared to be the same size as the little girl, according to the Houston Chronicle. KHOU...

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Turkish authorities have jailed a Kurdish teacher for her condemnation of the killing of civilians during anti-PKK operations in 2016. The teacher gave birth recently and will go to prison with her baby. “Do not stay silent… Do not let human beings and children die, and do not let mothers cry,” Ayse Celik said on-air during a phone-in show on Turkey’s Kanal D TV station in January 2016. She was reacting to military operations in her hometown of Diyarbakir and criticized Turkish media for their coverage of the events. “What is happening here is shown on...

The request will ultimately let senators bring children under a year old onto the Senate floor. Duckworth (D-Ill.) told the website before her daughter was born that new mothers couldn’t...
