Alabama Denying Prisoner an Abortion

Alaba court denies abprtion to prisonerA fight over an incarcerated Alabama woman's ability to have an abortion took a strange turn as the state moved to terminate the woman's parental rights in order to prevent her from accessing the procedure.

The woman, who is referred to in court documents as Jane Doe, is seeking a temporary restraining order against the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office so she can be furloughed and transported 75 miles to the closest abortion clinic in Huntsville, Alabama. Rick Singleton, the local sheriff, told the inmate that since abortion is an "elective" medical procedure, rather than an emergency, she'd have to obtain a court order to leave the jail. Doe's pregnancy is in its first trimester.


Advocates seek Vatican inquiry of Newark, NJ, archbishop

The group wants an inquiry through the new tribunal Pope Francis formed to discipline bishops who don't protect young people.
