Trump officials take bold steps on Medicaid

Medicaid work requirements pushed by TrumpThe Trump administration is pulling out all the stops to encourage red states to make conservative changes to Medicaid without congressional input.

Administration officials are pushing ahead and granting approvals to states seeking to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients, even in the face of legal challenges and large-scale losses in the number of people covered.

Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) granted Ohio’s request for work requirements, the ninth such approval since President Trump took office.

Mumps, other outbreaks force U.S. detention centers to quarantine over 2,000 migrants

Mumps outbreak Christian Mejia thought he had a shot at getting out of immigration detention in rural Louisiana after he found a lawyer to help him seek asylum.

Then he was quarantined.

In early January, a mumps outbreak at the privately run Pine Prairie U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Processing Center put Mejia and hundreds of other detainees on lockdown. “When there is just one person who is sick, everybody pays,” Mejia, 19, said in a phone interview from the Pine Prairie center describing weeks without visits and access to the library and dining hall.

Judge rules Missouri Planned Parenthood clinic cannot offer abortions

Judge rules Missouri Planned parenthood cannot perform abortions

A federal judge has ruled that a Planned Parenthood in Missouri cannot offer abortions.

U.S. Western District Judge Brian Wimes ruled last Friday that the state's restriction for clinics giving abortions were not an “undue” burden for women seeking them, according to The Associated Press.

The ruling came just months after Planned Parenthood Great Plains, which manages a facility in Columbia, Mo., filed an injunction in an attempt to begin offering abortions again, The Columbia Missourian reported. The facility has operated without those privileges because it doesn't meet state mandates requiring clinics to have physicians with admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

Trump administration issues rule to strip millions from Planned Parenthood

Trump administration issues rule to strip millions from Planned Parenthood

The Trump administration issued a final rule on Friday that could effectively cut off tens of millions of federal family planning dollars to Planned Parenthood and steer some of that funding towards anti-abortion, faith-based care providers.

While the revamp of the Title X program does not accomplish the full defunding of Planned Parenthood that Republicans have called for, it is a major step in that direction, and marks another major policy win for social conservatives looking to prohibit access to abortion.

Under the rule, clinics would still have to provide an array of contraceptive services but could partner or subcontract with groups that stress abstinence only or natural family planning. It would also bar Planned Parenthood and other health care providers that accept the funding from making any abortion referrals or performing abortions — regardless of the funding source — at the same facilities where they provide Title X services like birth control, mammograms and cancer screenings.

We may finally know what causes Alzheimer’s – and how to stop it

Gum disease connected to Alzheimers

If you bled when you brushed your teeth this morning, you might want to get that seen to. We may finally have found the long-elusive cause of Alzheimer’s disease: Porphyromonas gingivalis, the key bacteria in chronic gum disease.

That’s bad, as gum disease affects around a third of all people. But the good news is that a drug that blocks the main toxins of P. gingivalis is entering major clinical trials this year, and research published today shows it might stop and even reverse Alzheimer’s. There could even be a vaccine.

Alzheimer’s is one of the biggest mysteries in medicine. As populations have aged, dementia has skyrocketed to become the fifth biggest cause of death worldwide. Alzheimer’s constitutes some 70 per cent of these cases and yet, we don’t know what causes it.

Iowa’s ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Law Deemed Unconstitutional

Fetal heartbeat bill loses in court Iowa’s “fetal heartbeat” law, the most restrictive abortion ban in the United States, was declared unconstitutional Tuesday, as it violates the Iowa state constitution, a state judge ruled.

Iowa’s Republican-controlled legislature passed the restriction in May 2018, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant.

In the ruling, posted online, District Court Judge Michael Huppert wrote, “It is undisputed that such cardiac activity is detectable well in advance of the fetus becoming viable.”
