    China’s Embassy in the United States took to Twitter to tout the “reeducation” camps that have imprisoned millions of Uighurs, saying they helped women to become more than “baby-making machines.” “[A] study shows that in the process of eradicating extremism, the minds of Uighur women in Xinjiang were emancipated and gender equality and reproductive health were promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines,” the embassy said in a Thursday message. “They are more confident and independent.” The message contained a link to a story in the English version of China Daily, a newspaper backed by the Chinese government. The publication...

    A premature baby the size of a Superman action figure has made a miraculous recovery—and now celebrates every milestone with his sidekick by his side. Logan Ray was born at 23 weeks gestation, weighing just 1.5 pounds, the same height as a tiny 12 inch Superman figure. Doctors told his parents to prepare for the worst, but just like his new hero toy, little Logan was a fighter. And with each miracle week that passed, the preemie grew and grew until, after 105 days at Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon, he got to go home. His mom Val, 34,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—An anonymous report from anonymous sources confirmed without a doubt that Trump has punched a baby directly in the face, completely unprovoked. According to the anonymous sources that are so anonymous they speak mainly through quiet whispers carried along on the north winds, Trump was in the Oval Office when he saw the innocent baby and ruthlessly assaulted him. "That baby, he looked at me funny," said Trump, according to 48 sources who wish to remain unidentified. "I know a funny look when I see one. What a dope! That baby looks like a complete and total loser. You want a...

    The alleged impaired driver suspected of hitting and killing a young expectant mother who was on an evening walk with her husband in Anaheim has been charged with murder, prosecutors said. In California, drivers convicted of DUI are given what’s called the Watson advisement, which informs them that they can be charged with murder if they kill someone while driving under the influence, according to prosecutors. The defendant’s bail was increased from $1 million to $3 million during her arraignment, which was continued. Deputy District Attorney Brian Orue, who is prosecuting the case, had sought $5 million bail, noting that...

    top government watchdog group obtained 165 pages of records from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealing that the FDA under the Obama administration paid $96,370 for “fresh and never frozen” tissue from first and second trimester aborted fetuses to use in creating ‘humanized mice’ for ongoing research.” The purchases included eight contracts signed “between 2012 and 2018” with the non-profit group Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) to acquire the baby body parts. ABR was the subject of numerous past criminal referrals issued by House and Senate committees, stated the watchdog. Lawmakers are also investigating whether Planned Parenthood “or any other...

    A baby thought to have been the youngest ever to die of COVID-19 may not have been killed by the coronavirus after all. Days after Connecticut officials last week announced that a six-week-old baby died after contracting coronavirus, the state’s medical examiner is not ready to say that COVID-19 was the cause of death. Governor Ned Lamont on Wednesday said that the toddler who was rushed to intensive care at a Hartford hospital was the youngest fatality of COVID-19 ‘anywhere.’ As of Friday afternoon, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has yet to officially rule that the novel coronavirus...

    Poland’s parliament has deferred a final decision on a bill that seeks to tighten the country’s already strict abortion legislation. The bill would outlaw abortion on the grounds of serious foetal abnormalities, one of a small number of exceptions to a near-total ban on abortion currently in place in the country. It has been sent back to a parliamentary committee for further work. The proposed new restriction was proposed by an ultra-conservative Catholic group, under a regulation that allows citizen’s initiatives that gain more than 100,000 signatures to be debated. Parliament, dominated by the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party,...

    Hunter Biden’s baby boy is a week old, but it may be months before his grandfather Joe Biden gets to meet him. Hunter’s wife, Melissa Cohen - who he wed last May, after knowing her for six days - gave birth to a “beautiful and healthy” son on March 28, according to her brother, Garyn Cohen. But presidential candidate, Joe, 77, is currently under a state-mandated lockdown at his home in Wilmington, Del., amid the coronavirus pandemic. **SNIP** Baby-boy Biden was born in Los Angeles, where the family is living in a $2.5 million home in the Hollywood Hills.

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Strong Memorial Hospital officials say a man who was feeling sick attempted to obscure his symptoms so he could join his expectant wife in the hospital’s maternity ward. Strong officials say the man admitted he was sick after his wife displayed COVID-19 symptoms after giving birth this past week. After the incident, University of Rochester Medicine and Rochester Regional Health officials announced that beginning Tuesday, universal masking procedures will take effect. The move is the latest of several actions local health systems have taken to help flatten the curve of COVID-19.

    As attempts to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic go, here’s a reprehensible one: the effort by some conservative states to halt abortions by arguing that they are “nonessential” medical procedures. Sounds ridiculous, but that's the way officials in Ohio and Texas have interpreted emergency health orders intended to conserve medical equipment and gear needed for hospitals during the crisis. It should be obvious that an abortion can't be "postponed" until the pandemic clears up like a facelift or cataract surgery or routine dental work. If a woman doesn't get get an abortion in a timely fashion, she can’t get it at...

    Why should one baby down the hall be given care while another is left to die? Sen. Joni Ernst asked the Senate Judiciary Committee. Not one Democrat in the room could answer the question. The Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act is not about restricting abortions but about giving newborns a chance to survive no matter where they are born, said Sen. Ben Sasse, the bill’s lead co-sponsor, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.During the hearing, called “The Infant Patient: Ensuring Appropriate Medical Care for Children Born Alive,” Republican senators questioned why a baby born in a hospital should be treated...
