    As the nation gears up for distributing a COVID-19 vaccine, many questions remain about who should get it, particularly when it comes to pregnant women. "(It's) definitely something my husband and I have been talking about," said Caroline Nosbisch, who is 20 weeks pregnant and eager to add to her family. Nosbisch is considering whether to get the COVID-19 vaccine if it's offered to her. "My husband is a first responder, so he has a high exposure with his job — that's still a big concern for us, what he's doing on a day-to-day basis and what he could bring...

    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...

    The woman who fatally shot a home intruder in suburban Tampa last week was pregnant and used an AR-15 to kill the man, according to a news report. Jeremy King of Lithia told Bay News 9 that his wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in a back bedroom Wednesday when two men burst in at about 9 p.m. and began brutally beating King, demanding money and grabbing his 11-year-old daughter. The woman told the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office that she grabbed the weapon and shot one of the suspects once. That man was dead in a nearby ditch by...

  • False pregnancy rumor led boy, then 13, to kill 14-year-old girl, authorities say

    CANTON — A 14-year-old boy killed a teen girl execution style because he apparently believed a false rumor she was pregnant and thought he was the father, according to prosecutors. Isiah Lynch pleaded true — the juvenile equivalent of guilty —Wednesday to a murder charge for the March fatal shooting of 14-year-old Sylvia McGee. Lynch was 13 at the time of McGee’s death. Following a plea hearing in juvenile court, Assistant Prosecutor Michelle Cordova said Lynch told police he believed McGee was pregnant. “That is what I believe got this whole thing started,” she said, noting McGee was not his...

    It was another instance of that most common of events: a woman, diminished. Earlier this week, Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate, was asked about a story that she's mentioned often on the campaign trail: In 1971, when she was 22 years old and completing her first year of teaching, she lost her job once it became clear that she was visibly pregnant. It was, she tweeted, "an experience millions of women will recognize." But over the past few days, conservative news sites and mainstream outlets either have sought to directly refute Warren's account or have disputed...

    Jessica Guedes, 30, a nurse, was six months pregnant and apparently healthy when she fell ill in the limo on the way to the church last Sunday in São Paulo. At first her family thought she was suffering from anxiety due to wedding nerves after she complained of feeling dizzy with pains in her neck. Because of this, the entourage was running late and they were unaware the victim was suffering from the pre-eclampsia which would shortly rob her of her young life and motherhood. The bride was declared brain dead by doctors shortly after arriving at the hospital. Pre-eclampsia...

    Former Planned Parenthood medical assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston, recently highlighted in a New York Times expose detailing how she and other pregnant staffers experienced discrimination while working for the abortion corporation, has spoken out in an interview for the first time since the article was published. Hairston told the Times that Planned Parenthood ignored her obstetrician’s orders requiring her to take frequent breaks. Hairston gave birth prematurely and told the Times that just two months later, Planned Parenthood “began calling her at home, telling her to return to work early.” She further describes the harassment and stress she suffered at the...

    Google doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being pro-life. It has shown a clear bias against pregnancy centers; originally categorized the pro-life film “Unplanned” as “propaganda;” ditched an artificial intelligence advisory council after a conservative, pro-life Black female leader was included on it; and has, via YouTube, suppressed Live Action’s pro-life message. Now, one Google employee has written a memo claiming she was discriminated against for becoming pregnant. Pregnancy discrimination persists, despite being illegal in the United States. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) means that an employer cannot show any kind of discrimination against a woman because she is pregnant,...

    An American basketball player was suspended after an attempt to cheat at a urine drug test backfired spectacularly ­– revealing he was pregnant. The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) banned Donell “DJ” Cooper Jr, a 28-year-old point guard who last played for AS Monaco, for two years for “fraud” after a urine sample was found to contain a hormone commonly associated with pregnancy. Cooper, a Chicago native and former college standout, had gone undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft but developed a successful pro career in Europe.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Rogers woman has been charged in the 2018 death of her newborn baby, according to charges filed in Hennepin County Court. Twenty-nine-year-old Rianna Marie Cameron was charged Wednesday with two counts of second-degree manslaughter. According to the criminal complaint, officers with the Rogers Police Department were called to a townhome in Rogers at about 8:39 p.m. on Dec. 30, on a report of a non-responsive infant. The child’s father called police after he found Cameron disoriented in an upstairs bedroom, along with the newborn baby girl who was lying at the foot of the bed with...

    Editor’s note. This is an updated version of a story that ran previously in NRL News Today. I hope you enjoy it. There are many faults line along with pro-life and “pro-choice” people divide. In a sense, perhaps the most fundamental is that we refuse to accept either [the mother] or [the baby]. We believe in win-win solutions that are both/and. I think of that truism (for us) every time I read a study documenting the interdependence, the mutuality of mother and child. Even more so when I read about truths that are widely known in the scientific community but...

    The University of Washington is conducting an experiment in which pregnant mothers will use the drug cannabis, commonly known as marijuana, to see the effects on infants. The university has received roughly more than $190,000 from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to conduct the study, which recruits women to take marijuana from the first to last trimester of their pregnancy, according to KOMO-TV. As the project information details, 70 total subjects will participate in the study. Half of these women will be taking marijuana at least twice a week to combat morning sickness, while the other 35 will take...

    Three people have been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a pregnant Chicago woman who was strangled before her baby was cut from her womb, authorities announced Thursday. The older woman’s boyfriend, 40-year-old Piotr Bobak is charged with concealing a death by homicide, police said. Desiree Figueroa, who pretended Ochoa-Lopez's baby was hers, admitted to helping her mother strangle the woman with a coaxial cable, police said. Ochoa-Lopez’s body was found early Wednesday behind the house, more than three weeks after she was last seen leaving her high school on April 23. That same day, paramedics were...

    A pregnant woman’s pained screams could be heard in a Quincy courtroom Thursday as Judge Mark Coven watched a video that prosecutors say shows the woman being beaten by two Quincy teenagers outside a downtown post office. The Patriot Ledger reported that after watching the video, Coven ruled that the two defendants, Tyrese D. Johnson-Nurse, 19, and David D. Russell, 18, could pose a danger to the public and ordered that they adhere to additional conditions, including wearing a GPS monitor, if released. The two had been held behind bars since their arrest Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault and...
