    I just watched the segment on Tucker where the mother was not allowed to be with her disabled daughter because of COVID rules. She was arrested....and the hospital could have a huge lawsuit on their hands if the mother knows this. I have posted this before. Have dealt with it ourselves with our elderly, disabled mother. The hospital backed down when we told them this. Please...everyone. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! And would someone please send this link to Tucker? Don't have a contact for the mom...but she needs to know this. Hospitals are ignorant of the ADA law. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9y1rOWyf_XM&feature=youtu.be

  • Henrietta Lacks estate sues company using her 'stolen' cells

    10/04/2021 6:39:31 PM PDT · by algore · 38 replies
    COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The estate of Henrietta Lacks sued a biotechnology company on Monday, accusing it of selling cells that doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital took from the Black woman in 1951 without her knowledge or consent as part of “a racially unjust medical system." Tissue taken from the woman's tumor before she died of cervical cancer became the first human cells to be successfully cloned. Reproduced infinitely ever since, HeLa cells have become a cornerstone of modern medicine, enabling countless scientific and medical innovations, including the development of the polio vaccine, genetic mapping and even COVID-19 vaccines. Lacks’...

    Hillary Clinton on Thursday expressed support for ending the filibuster, contending that the Republican Party “does not respect the rule of law.” When asked during an interview for The Atlantic Festival’s Ideas Stage if she would end the filibuster, Clinton said “absolutely,” pointing to the GOP’s refusal to vote on Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court in 2016. “Keeping the filibuster now, when you're dealing with a political party that does not respect the rule of law, does not even respect the process unless it works for them, you know, witness what they did to Merrick Garland when President...

    Texas's new abortion bill will overrun courts with amateur prosecutors avenging wrongs that have not caused them any particularized harm.Texas is the latest state to test the limits of federal abortion jurisprudence by passing the Texas Heartbeat Act, a law severely limiting abortions there. It is part of a trend — a Louisiana abortion law was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2019 and a Mississippi law to ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy is on the docket for next term in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.The Texas law would ban all abortions after the baby’s...

    Pro-life groups in Michigan, including Right to Life of Michigan, have called for the repeal of Roe v. Wade. "The Michigan abortion industry is afraid of what the future will hold for them," the organization said on Facebook last week. "Well here is a little hint, the future is prolife." In a statement to Fox News, the pro-life group says it is confident Whitmer will not be able to repeal the law.

    Pro-choice advocates in Texas have been offered a faint ray of hope from a possibly unexpected source this week – Satanists. Purportedly in the name of religious freedom, The Satanic Temple has hit back hard against the state’s recent institution of draconian anti-abortion laws. The Massachusetts-based religious group has filed a letter with the US Food and Drug Administration to make the case that abortion is the faith-based right of its members. The Satanic Temple argued that under The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which was created to allow Native Americans access to peyote for use in rituals, its members...

    A Texas state law took effect early on Wednesday after the U.S. Supreme Court did not act on an emergency petition brought by abortion facilities and activists to block it, meaning private citizens can sue abortion providers who perform the deadly operation after six weeks of pregnancy.The Texas law had been set to go into effect on Sept. 1 and protects children with detectable heartbeats, which typically occurs six to eight weeks into a pregnancy. The high court’s inaction occurs as the justices prepare to hear a direct challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision later this year.The law,...

    A controversial Texas law that bars abortions at six weeks went into effect early Wednesday morning after the Supreme Court and a federal appeals court failed to rule on pending emergency requests brought by abortion providers. The lack of judicial intervention means that the law -- which is one of the strictest in the nation and bans abortion before many people know they are pregnant -- goes into force absent further court intervention."What ultimately happens to this law remains to be seen," said CNN Supreme Court analyst and University of Texas Law School professor Steve Vladeck, "but now through their...

    More than 900 child sex abuse claims were filed against the Buffalo Diocese in federal bankruptcy court by Saturday, the deadline for abuse victims to come forward if they want part of a potential settlement that could cost the diocese tens of millions of dollars. The number of claims was double the largest number ever filed in the more than 20 prior diocese bankruptcies in the U.S. since 2004. “The total count right now is 924,” said Ilan D. Scharf, attorney for the committee of unsecured creditors in the diocese bankruptcy case. “There are sometimes duplicate claims or amended claims...

    The FBI had knowledge that a second laptop had been stolen from Hunter Biden and that laptop contained material making the Biden family a national security risk, subject to Russian influence. ======================================================================================= The FBI knew as early as December 2019 that Hunter Biden believed Russians had stolen his laptop, which he believed made him vulnerable to blackmail because of compromising evidence on the laptop combined with his father’s presidential ambitions. This explosive revelation establishes that either Joe Biden lied to the American public, or the intelligence community lied to him. When The New York Post went public in October 2020...

    Could your next lawyer be a robot? It sounds far fetched, but artificial intelligence (AI) software systems - computer programs that can update and "think" by themselves - are increasingly being used by the legal community. Joshua Browder describes his app DoNotPay as "the world's first robot lawyer". It helps users draft legal letters. You tell its chatbot what your problem is, such as appealing against a parking fine, and it will suggest what it thinks is the best legal language to use.

Not only is the decision a huge victory for the plaintiffs, Texas and Missouri, in their fight to force the federal government to secure the border, the opinion provides a perfect primer for Americans on immigration law and the border crisis.The court’s analysis also provides a...

    Law enforcement officers in Texas were deputized Thursday and will "immediately" begin working to track down Democratic lawmakers whose extended absence from Austin has denied the state House of Representatives a quorum for a month. The House sergeant-at-arms, who received 52 civil arrest warrants for the missing lawmakers from Republican House Speaker Dade Phelan earlier in the week, took the initiative after the Texas Supreme Court blocked more attempts to keep top Republican officials from ordering the Democrats' arrest. Three Harris County judges had granted orders, which the state Supreme Court stayed, to block the arrests of the 45 Democrats....

    While Bill Cosby may have walked out of prison a free man yesterday, the courts saw to it that he endured two criminal trials and spent years in prison during his appeals.On June 30, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed the criminal sexual assault conviction against Bill Cosby, concluding that the 2005 decision by District Attorney Bruce Castor not to prosecute Cosby for the alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand barred Pennsylvania from later charging Cosby with that crime. Given the avalanche of allegations that the former actor and comedian drugged and then sexually assaulted scores of young women, Wednesday’s decision...
