Bristol Palin says unmarried pregnancy was planned
29 Jun 2015 at 7:54pm

(Reuters) - Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and an advocate of sexual abstinence before marriage, says in a blog post that her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy was "actually planned". Just over a month ago, the former governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee announced that her daughter's planned marriage to Medal-of-Honor winner Dakota Meyer had been called off. "This pregnancy was actually planned," Bristol Palin wrote on Sunday in a blog post entitled "My Little Blessing".

Milwaukee museum to display portrait of pope made of condoms
29 Jun 2015 at 7:28pm
The Milwaukee Art Museum says it hopes a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made of condoms will ignite a conversation about the AIDS epidemic in Africa and the role art plays in public discussions, director Dan Keegan said on Monday. Milwaukee Catholic Archbishop Jerome Listecki called the museum callous and the portrait insulting in a blog last week on the Archdiocese website. About 17,000 colorful condoms were stitched together to fashion the portrait called "Eggs Benedict," which the museum plans to put on display in November, museum spokeswoman Vicki Scharfberg said.

Backers of California pot-legalization ballot measure given OK to get signatures
29 Jun 2015 at 4:38pm

Supporters of a California ballot initiative to legalize marijuana for recreational use may begin gathering signatures to place it before voters in 2016, a state official said on Monday. The proposal is the latest of four marijuana-related initiatives vying for a spot on the ballot at a time when many believe the most populous U.S. state is on track to join Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon in legalizing recreational pot. Legal sale of marijuana for recreational use in Oregon is set to begin on Wednesday.

For post-op complications, go back to the same hospital: study
29 Jun 2015 at 3:48pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) ? Patients who need to be rehospitalized within a month after major surgery have a lower risk of death over the next two months if they return to the hospital where they had the surgery rather than going to a different facility, according to a new study. ?Most clinicians or surgeons feel like if you take the time to do a big operation on someone, you know the area operated on, how the operations went, if there were complications,? lead author Dr. Benjamin S. Brooke of the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City told Reuters Health by phone.


U.S. top court rules against Obama administration over air pollution rule
29 Jun 2015 at 3:35pm

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled the Obama administration should have considered compliance cost when it decided to limit emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants mainly from coal-fired power plants, a setback for the government that leaves the legal status of the regulation in limbo.     The court ruled in a 5-4 decision, with its five conservative justices in the majority, against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The rule stays in effect for the time being, with the case returning to an appeals court, which will decide whether or not it should be thrown out. "EPA is disappointed that the court did not uphold the rule, but this rule was issued more than three years ago, investments have been made and most plants are already well on their way to compliance," the agency said in a statement.


Factbox: Questions remain on U.S. mercury rule after high court ruling
29 Jun 2015 at 3:34pm
By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday that the Environmental Protection Agency should have weighed the potential financial costs of compliance before imposing limits on emissions of mercury and other toxins from coal-fired power plants. The EPA and some academics said the outcome was not their worst case scenario. Richard Revesz, director of the Institute for Policy Integrity and dean emeritus of NYU Law School, said the court did not dispute the EPA argument that there are direct and ancillary benefits of the mercury restrictions, which the EPA said in projections after it issued its rule.

State restrictions for hepatitis C drug may go too far
29 Jun 2015 at 3:28pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - State-run insurance programs for the poor may be putting up illegal barriers that prevent people with hepatitis C from getting a new treatment, a new study suggests. "We had this idea that there were restrictions in place, but we didn't anticipate the breadth of these restrictions," said study author Robert Greenwald of the Center for Health Law and Policy at Harvard Law School in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. About 3.2 million people in the U.S. are infected with hepatitis C, but many do not feel ill or know they have the disease, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Ciguatera fish poisoning more common than thought
29 Jun 2015 at 2:50pm

US Supreme Court halts Texas abortion clinics closure
29 Jun 2015 at 2:44pm

The US Supreme Court on Monday temporarily halted the closure of most of the abortion clinics in Texas, two days before rules forcing them to shut their doors were due to go into effect. Abortion providers said the rules -- which included requiring clinics to follow costly hospital-like building standards -- amount to a "multi-million dollar tax on abortion services" and would have forced all but nine of the sprawling state's clinics to close. "We?re relieved that the high court has, once again, prevented anti-choice politicians from pushing safe and affordable abortion care entirely out of reach for Texas women," said Amy Hagstrom Miller, founder of Whole Woman's Health, which operates six clinics in Texas.
