The Roman Catholic Church in Poland is coming out in support of a proposed law that would increase regulations on abortion in the European country to protect life from conception to death.
As Reuters reports, Poland's abortion laws allow the termination of a pregnancy if the mother's life is in danger, in cases of rape or incest, or if the baby would be severely deformed.
The legislation, which is being proposed by the conservative Law and Justice Party, will make unborn life protection laws even stronger, allowing termination of pregnancy only in cases where mothers face a medical emergency. more >>
The Gatestone Institute, a think tank based in New York, has published a report claiming that Syrian women and girls are being trafficked at refugee camps in Turkey, where they are sometimes sold to wealthy Muslim men from other nations as sex slaves.
"Although the desperate victims are their Muslim sisters and brothers, wealthy Arab states do not take in refugees. The people in this area know too well that asylum seekers would bring with them problems, both social and economic," Gatestone said in a report, published Sunday.
"For many Muslim men such as wealthy, aging Saudis, it is easier to buy Syrian children from Turkey, Syria or Jordan as cheap sex slaves." more >>
Joey+Rory's last album, Hymns That Are Important to Us, remains on the top of country music and Christian charts since Joey's death last month. Rory Feek chose not to attend Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards and posted the first picture of Joey's grave for their fans.
The album, which Joey called "God's record," took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, as the 51st ACM awards ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas took a moment to honor Joey, who died last month after a nearly two-year battle with cancer, according to USA Today.

The student government at the University of California Berkeley unanimously passed a proposal to install an abortion clinic on campus, arguing it is a common healthcare service "necessary and relevant in student-life."
"When medication abortion is not available at UHS (University Health Services), students who are seeking an abortion face financial, time, and travel constraint burdens that create negative impacts on academic performance and mental health," states Senate Resolution 69, passed by the student government Wednesday, according to Campus Reform. "UHS is a health center dedicated to meeting the health needs of students in order for students to be able to upkeep their academic well-being. Abortion is a common healthcare service and access to abortion is necessary and relevant in student life."
The bill charges that abortion services were available on campus in the 1980s but were scuttled due to a lack of trained abortion providers. Berkley's student government argues that since the university's health office is equipped with trained abortion providers, there should be an abortion clinic on campus once again. more >>
