Hundreds of thousands of Texas women attempted self-induced abortion – study

self induced abortion attempts by hundreds of thousands of womenBetween 100,000 and 240,000 women in Texas aged 18 to 49 have tried to induce an abortion at home, according to a new study released on Tuesday.

In the first study of its kind, the Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP), run by the University of Texas, attempted to show the prevalence of self-induced abortions in the state in the wake of legislators’ attempts to limit women’s access to abortions. Last week the supreme court agreed to hear a challenge to one of Texas’s most stringent abortion laws, known as HB2, which has led to the closure of more than half the state’s clinics.

Antibiotics fed to healthy livestock harmful to children

Antibiotics fed to livestockAntibiotics have been added livestock feed for decades, initially used after researchers found in drug trials they caused animals to gain weight, producing more meat to sell consumers.

In addition to their ability to fatten animals, antibiotics now also serve the purpose of limiting the spread of infection among animals as they are being raised. Researchers have found, however, that using the drugs in healthy animals meant for food has reduced their ability to treat infections in humans -- posing a potentially serious health crisis.

Medicaid cuts imperil hospitals that serve the poor

Medicaid cuts hurt poorAt Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, it takes, on average, two hours to see an emergency room doctor, 13 more to be admitted to the hospital and nine after that to get a bed. Five percent of patients — five times the national average — simply leave without being seen at all.

A 'huge milestone': approval of cancer-hunting virus signals new treatment era

Their side effects are legion, and in many cases horrifying – from hair loss and internal bleeding to chronic nausea and even death.

How a Billionaire-Backed IUD Is Fighting the GOP War on Women's Bodies

LilettaIf you’re looking for empirical evidence that the GOP and its “pro-life” boosters are less anti-abortion than they are anti-sex, look no further than the case of Liletta.

The new intrauterine device became available in April, and family planning clinics around the country began stocking it, often in bulk, this summer.

Liletta is everything a contraceptive should be: affordable, safe, effective, and for now—thanks to the backing of a well-known billionaire—widely accessible. Studies prove the IUD reduces rates of unplanned pregnancies, and it’s been shown to decrease the number of teen abortions.
