Crushed by Parental and Societal Pressure, Asian American Students Are Resorting to Suicide

Asian studentsFour University of Pennsylvania students have committed suicide in the past year. Following Wendy Shung’s suicide last August and Alice Wiley’s in December, Madison Holleran jumped off a parking tower in January and Elvis Hatcher hanged himself in February.

While the suicide of the Asian American student, Shung, passed without much reverberation across campus, the suicides of the three white students have sparked mourning and outrage.

Terror data baseA government database of known or suspected terrorists doubled in size in recent years, the Associated Press has learned. The growth is the result of intelligence agencies submitting names more often after a near-miss attack in 2009.

Tony BoschA year to the day that Major League Baseball handed down more than a dozen suspensions in the Biogenesis scandal, highlighted by that of embattled slugger Alex Rodriguez, federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents conducted an early Tuesday morning roundup that led to charges against the former clinic's founder, Anthony Bosch, and others tied to his operation.

Several of his associates with ties to the anti-aging/wellness business were picked up at their homes in the predawn hours and brought in for processing.

Judge: Alabama abortion clinic law unconstitutional

Alabama abortion law overturnedA federal judge has blocked an Alabama law requiring abortion providers to obtain admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, making it the second such law to be ruled unconstitutional within a week.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson issued an order Monday that temporarily blocks enforcement of the Alabama statute, which he said would place an undue burden on women seeking an abortion by forcing the closure of three of the state’s five clinics. A federal appeals court issued a similar ruling last week on a Mississippi law, which would have shuttered that state’s only clinic.
