Doctors welcome 'Holy Grail' of cancer research

A blood test for 10 different types of cancers could one day help doctors screen for the disease before patients show symptoms, researchers at the world’s largest gathering of oncologists have said.

Supreme Court declines to hear challenge to Arkansas abortion law

SCOTUS refuses to hear Arkansas abortion banThe U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge Tuesday to a controversial new Arkansas law that blocks medication-induced abortions.

TVNL Comment:  Reminder: Donald Trump said very clearly that women who get abortions must be punished.  More obstacles to health care for women have been put in place in the last year than at any other time.  Women who back Trump need to rethink their betrayal of other women.

Trump targets Planned Parenthood, family planning services with new abortion rule

Alex Azar with Trump, tie abortion to all health servicesThe Trump administration moved forward with a proposal Friday that would effectively ban Planned Parenthood and similar organizations from providing abortion and related services under the same roof as operations funded by federal family-planning grants, according to an administration official.

The so-called Hyde amendment prohibits the use of competitive federal family-planning grant funds for abortion, but organizations like Planned Parenthood have traditionally used the federal money for other health services while using private money for abortions and related services — sometimes at the same facilities and with the same staff.
