    Live Action and Live Action News frequently receive questions about the abortion issue. One of the most common is about how the United States track statistics on abortion — who’s getting them, how many they’re getting, and why they’re getting them. Below is information to help answer some of those questions. How abortion data is collected: There are two national groups that collect data on abortion, and there are a number of differences in the two reporting agencies. * The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) collects information the states provide, but due to a wide variety of state requirements on...

    The partisan CIA officer behind a so-called “whistleblower” complaint wrote that a White House official described President Donald Trump’s call with Ukraine as “crazy” and “frightening,” according to a report. Fox News reports the CIA officer penned a two-page memo on July 26th — one the day after the Trump-Zelensky call — in which he wrote his conversation with the White House official, “only lasted a few minutes, and as a result, I only received highlights.” Reporters Catherine Herridge and Bradford Betz write: According to the memo, the White House official “described the (July 25th) call as ‘crazy,’ ‘frightening,’ and...
  • Pandemic could kill up to 80 million people -- and the world isn't ready, experts say

    Between 2011 and 2018, WHO tracked 1,483 epidemics worldwide, including Ebola and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the report said. These epidemics and pandemics devastated many of their host countries -- the West Africa Ebola outbreak resulted in a loss of $53 billion in economic and social cost. These huge economic costs translate to severe real-life consequences -- lost jobs, forced displacement, inaccessible healthcare, and greater mortality. While disease, epidemics, and pandemics have always existed, greater population density and the ability to travel anywhere in the world within 36 hours means disease can spread rapidly through a country and then...

    A married father-of-two from South Carolina who founded one of the nation's largest conversion therapy programs has come out as gay and strongly denounced the widely discredited practice. McKrae Game, 51, the former leader of Hope for Wholeness, came out of the closet in June, nearly two years after he was fired from the faith-based conversion therapy ministry. He is now trying to come to terms with the harm he inflicted on LGBTQ people when he was advocating for religious efforts to change a person's sexuality.

    New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand dropped out of the Democratic presidential race yesterday evening after failing to qualify for the third round of primary debates, slated for September 12. Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, meanwhile, will be one of ten Democrats on stage in Houston next month. To qualify for the debate, candidates had to hit 2 percent in at least four public-opinion polls and secure 130,000 unique donors. Among the others not to reach the threshold for September were Colorado senator Michael Bennet, Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard, and Montana governor Steve Bullock. While Yang managed to snag a spot in...

    CNN's Reliable Sources, hosted by left-wing "media correspondent" Brian Stelter, is not having a good year -- it's average audience has fallen 42% since January. Between Jan. 6 and Jan. 27, 2019, Reliable Sources averaged 967,000 viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily broadcast data as reported by John Nolte at Breitbart News. But for June 16 to July 7, 2017, the data show that Reliable Sources' audience had fallen to an average of 557,000 viewers, an audience about the size of Albuquerque, New Mexico. That audience size is also about half the number of prostitutes in the United States, which is estimated...

    Russell Westbrook and James Harden are together again, and Chris Paul is leaving Houston to make that reunion happen. A person with knowledge of the situation says the Oklahoma City Thunder have traded Westbrook to the Houston Rockets for Paul in a swapping of top point guards. The Thunder also are getting first-round picks in 2024 and 2026, plus the right to swap first-rounders in two other seasons, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the trade has not been announced.

    The Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) have confirmed a case of Ebola Virus Disease in Uganda.

    In Congo, the ebola epidemic is back. Axios has a disturbing chart showing a sharp arc upward based on Congolese government data. Total cases have gone to from virtually nothing last August to 2,031 now — and the data suggest that the trend has not peaked. That's news, because right now, Congolese migrants have begun crossing our unguarded southern border in large numbers. According to the Voice of America: U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 150 African immigrants [sic] attempting unauthorized crossings into Texas at the U.S. southern border within the past week, according to U.S. Customs and...

    Scientists have launched a bid to observe and understand mysterious flashes of light on the surface of the moon. The ‘transient luminous lunar phenomena’ occur several times a week and illuminate parts of the moon’s landscape for a brief period of time before disappearing. Sometimes, a reverse effect which causes the lunar surface to darken has also been observed. Although there are several theories about the lunar mystery lights’ origins, they have not yet been fully explained. Now astronomers from Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Bavaria, Germany have set up a telescope which will use artificial intelligence to automatically detect the...

According to Human Rights Watch, the change was finalized on Friday, March 25 at the 72nd World Health Assembly, the WHO’s chief decision-making body. The elimination of Gender Identity Disorder as a pathology was part of the eleventh revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11).

    The 194 members of the World Health Organisation have recognised 'gaming disorder' as an illness at the 72nd World Health Assembly today.

The disorder is described as: 'a pattern of behaviour characterised by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences'.

    jury ruled against chemical giant Monsanto on Monday, awarding a California couple $2 billion in damages after determining their cancer was caused by the weedkiller RoundUp. The decision in Alameda County Superior Court comes on the heels of a recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) statement that said there were no serious public health risks associated with glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp. But a growing number of juries disagree with the EPA's position. Monday's ruling marks the third case since August in which a jury found that glyphosate caused cancer. More than 13,000 similar lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto...

    Bestselling author and spiritual leader Marianne Williamson, among a field of more than 20 candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, told Fox News on Monday that she agrees with President Trump’s latest penalties on Chinese products. “When it comes to China, he's absolutely right,” she said on “The Daily Briefing.” “It was time for someone to stand up to this. He's right that this has been going on a very long time. Now, whether the number of his tariffs is too blunt … is a question. The fact that he's taking a tough stance, he's right.” The U.S. moved...

    U.S. debt has climbed to an alarming level, according to DoubleLine Capital CEO Jeffrey Gundlach. “People are starting to realize that the deficit and debt are totally out of control,” Gundlach said on CNBC’s “Halftime Report” Tuesday. Guldach said the “main reason” the yield curve between 3-year Treasury bonds and 5-year bonds is steepening is a ballooning deficit. Gundlach — sometimes known as the “bond king” — runs the $50 billion DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund. Its five-year performance is one of the best in its category, but lagged most of its peers in 2019 with a gain of just...
