Wait times for abortions in Nova Scotia unconscionable advocate says

first_imgHALIFAX – More women have come forward to complain about abortion-access hurdles in Nova Scotia, as a national lobby group says it plans a renewed push in the province.One woman says she was a 23-year-old university student when she missed a period and suspected her birth control had failed. She confirmed it with a pregnancy test in a Starbucks washroom.“I was in this state of incredulity,” said the woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “But from the very beginning I absolutely knew what my choice was.”She made an appointment at an on-campus health clinic where a doctor repeatedly questioned her decision and made her feel uncomfortable.“I walked in and was extremely clear about what I wanted,” she said. “I didn’t expect a clap on the back but the doctor was completely unsupportive.”Although the doctor did eventually write a referral, she had to wait more than six weeks before obtaining an abortion.She’s not alone. Several women interviewed describe facing significant barriers to abortion services in Nova Scotia, with women requiring referrals for surgical abortions and waiting several weeks for the time-sensitive procedure.Compounding delays is a lack of provincial coverage for the abortion pill Mifegymiso, a two-step process that can be used to terminate a pregnancy of up to 49 days. Also, the province has no private or free-standing abortion clinics and the Halifax hospital that performs nearly 90 per cent of the province’s abortions will only book appointments for women who are at least eight weeks pregnant.“We’ve always pointed to the Maritimes as a huge problem for abortion access but now that P.E.I. and New Brunswick have improved access, Nova Scotia has been left behind,” Joyce Arthur, executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, said in an interview from Vancouver. “Nova Scotia will become more of a focus for pro-choice efforts to improve access.”She said one of the biggest problems in the province is the need for women to obtain a referral before being able to make an appointment for a surgical abortion.“Women are at risk of having to deal with anti-choice gatekeepers who will delay access even further or shame women and treat them inappropriately and unprofessionally,” Arthur said. “Eliminating the referral requirement bypasses all that politicization and anti-choice stigma.”It would also reduce wait times, she said. Nova Scotia does not appear to keep statistics on how long it takes women to obtain an abortion after a referral, but average wait times of women interviewed ranged from four to eight weeks.“It’s unconscionable the province would let that go on. Waiting a month or two for an abortion is hell,” she said. “It’s traumatic and damaging to women and violates the spirit of the 1988 Morgentaler decision and likely violates constitutional rights.”Arthur said the abortion pill could be a “a real game changer,” but said Mifegymiso must be made easily accessible and free in order to improve access.Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick have all said they would provide at least some coverage for the drug.Barb Shellian, president of the Canadian Nurses Association, said it’s essential for the abortion pill to be universally funded and equally accessible across the country.“This drug has been used safely in Europe and the United States for decades,” she said from Saskatchewan. “It gives the option for a medical intervention rather than a surgical intervention and at the end of the day it may actually be cheaper.”Shellian said Mifegymiso offers women another choice and can improve abortion access, especially in rural and remote areas.last_img read more

Thunder Bay police rejects First Nation leaders call for RCMP probe of

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe acting chief of the beleaguered Thunder Bay police force rejected a call from First Nation leaders for the RCMP to step in and investigate three waterway deaths in the city.Thunder Bay police acting Chief Sylvie Hauth said during a press conference Wednesday that she did not believe it to be “practical” or “necessary” to call in the Mounties.The Ontario government has said only Hauth, as acting police chief, has the power to call in the RCMP.Hauth became acting chief after the Ontario Provincial Police charged Thunder Bay police Chief J.P. Levesque with obstruction of justice and breach of trust after he allegedly disclosed confidential information about the city’s mayor Keith Hobbs.First Nation leaders have said the local Indigenous community has no confidence in the Thunder Bay police or the OPP to investigate the deaths of Indigenous people.Nishnawbe Aski Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler, Grand Council Treaty 3 Ogichidaa Francis Kavanaugh and Rainy River First Nations Chief Jim Leonard last week called on the RCMP to investigate the deaths of: Tammy Keeash, 17, who was living in a group home and found dead in the Neebing-McIntyre Floodway on May 7; Josiah Begg, 14, who was found dead in the McIntyre River on May 18; and Stacy DeBungee, who was found dead in the McIntyre River on Oct. 19, 2015.The chiefs could not be immediately reached for comment.Hauth said the OPP completed a review of how the city police handled the DeBungee investigation on May 15. The Thunder Bay police said earlier Wednesday there were no plans to release the report.The Thunder Bay police botched the handling of DeBungee’s death investigation, according to private investigator David Perry, a former senior Toronto homicide detective. Thunder Bay detectives shut the file on DeBungee, declaring it to be accidental, before the conclusion of an autopsy examination.Perry discovered DeBungee’s debit card was used after his death and that his identification cards were strewn on the river bank near where he was found mixed in with the identification material of another individual who has not yet been found.Hauth said the OPP review now also extends to the Keeash and Begg deaths.Serious questions still remain around the deaths of three of seven First Nation youth who were the subject of a coroner’s inquest which ended in June 2016. Five of the seven youth died in Thunder Bay’s waterways and three of those deaths were found to be “undetermined” by the coroner’s jury.Perry told APTN it’s highly possible foul play may be behind some of these river deaths.The Thunder Bay police now says it is investigating whether Indigenous youth are being targeted. jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

The Latest EU diplomat pans hardliners difficult Brexit

LONDON — The Latest on Britain’s exit from the European Union (all times local):2:00 p.m.A senior German diplomat has criticized a British lawmaker for suggesting the U.K. should try to be “as difficult as possible” if the country can’t leave the European Union for a long time.Michael Roth, Germany’s minister for European affairs, said the idea tweeted by Brexit hardliner Jacob Rees-Mogg was “out of order.”In an interview with the weekly Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung published Sunday, Roth called on Rees-Mogg and other Conservative Party members in Parliament to embrace a “constructive approach” to Brexit.British Prime Minister Theresa May is asking the remaining EU leaders to postpone Friday’s Brexit deadline until June 30. Roth says the delay is only possible if May gets Parliament to approve her existing divorce deal with Brussels by then.Roth, who is helping to co-ordinate the response the EU plans to give to May’s request at a Wednesday summit, dismissed reports the remaining 27 member countries are divided on further extending the Brexit deadline.The U.K. originally was scheduled to withdraw from the EU on March 29. The other countries agreed to conditionally push back the date to April 12.___11:40 a.m.Britain’s pro-Brexit Conservatives are protesting angrily against Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to seek the opposition party’s help in finding a compromise Brexit agreement.May acknowledged Saturday that, despite her best efforts to persuade lawmakers to back her European Union divorce deal, “there is no sign it can be passed in the near future.” She said there was no choice but to reach out to the opposition Labour Party. Otherwise, she says, Brexit could “slip through our fingers” unless a compromise alternative can be reached with Labour lawmakers.But leading Conservative Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg on Sunday slammed May’s move to include Labour in the Brexit talks, and blamed her for failing to take Britain out of the EU already.Three days of cross-party talks so far have ended with no agreement.The Associated Press read more

Amid unprecedented combination of epidemics UN and partners begin cholera vaccination campaign

The campaign began in North Kivu in the restive east of the country, where armed groups hold sway over large areas, and the DRC’s worst-ever Ebola epidemic is still raging, having claimed well over 1,000 lives so far.  The cholera campaign will be implemented by the DRC’s Ministry of Health with support from the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners, and funded by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. A total of 835,183 people in Binza, Goma, Kayina, Karisimbi, Kibirizi, Kirotshe and Rutshuru areas will be vaccinated by a deadline of next Saturday. A first dose will be given, and if all goes well, the second dose will be rolled out at a later stage to provide full protection. More than 10,000 cases of cholera have been reported in the country since January 2019, leading to more than 240 deaths. In addition, over 80,000 suspected cases of measles have led to over 1,400 deaths so far this year while a case of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 was reported in Kasai province, earlier this month.   “The DRC is confronted with an unprecedented combination of deadly epidemics,” said Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. “While the Ebola outbreak continues to cause untold misery in the East, measles and cholera epidemics are claiming the lives of thousands of people throughout the country. That’s why we are stepping up our response,” he added, “through ongoing measles vaccinations in health zones affected by measles outbreaks, as well as through our continued support for Ebola vaccinations in both the DRC and neighbouring countries. We cannot allow this needless suffering to continue.” Campaign is ‘massive contribution’ – WHO“Cholera is a preventable disease. Vaccinating people at risk in the most exposed health zones in North Kivu against cholera is a massive contribution and will protect hundreds of thousands of people against the disease and raise population immunity levels in these areas,” said Dr. Deo Nshimirimana, acting WHO Representative in the DRC. The cholera vaccine doses were taken from the global cholera vaccine stockpile, which is fully funded by Gavi. Gavi is also supporting operational costs for the campaign.  Since the stockpile was launched in 2013, millions of doses have helped tackle outbreaks across the globe. In the fifteen years between 1997 and 2012, just 1.5 million doses of oral cholera vaccine were used worldwide. In 2018 alone, the stockpile provided 17 million doses to 22 different countries. read more

Cousins drown at beauty spot two days after mindless vandals removed warning

first_imgVandals who removed warning signs from a nature reserve have been blasted by a coroner who heard that two teenagers drowned there just two days later.Stella Kambi, 17, ran into the water fully clothed at a former gravel pit to help her 14-year-old cousin Bonheur Musungay who was struggling.But the teenager vanished underneath the water with Bonheur as he held on to her tightly during his struggle, an inquest was told.Their bodies were later recovered in 12ft of water by police divers following the tragedy on August 12 last year at a nature reserve at Whitlingham Broad in Norfolk.Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake at Norfolk Coroner’s Court in Norwich criticised the “mindless” vandals who removed warning signs two days before the pair drowned. The former gravel pit is patrolled by police who often warn teenagers about the dangers of entering the water.The two-day jury inquest heard how management at the site had been attempting to tackle the problem since taking over the site in 2011.Kevin Hart, head of nature reserves at Norfolk Wildlife Trust, said signage was placed to warn people not so swim.He said: “We found permanent signs we would put up would disappear. We have always had the view we didn’t want people accessing the water.”Three signs warning against swimming, erected on 21 July 2015, had been vandalised and removed after just two weeks. The nature reserve at Whitlingham Broad in NorfolkCredit:SWNS.com Stella had entered the water fully clothed to rescue Bonheur after he suddenly disappeared under the surface just ten metres from the water’s edge.In a witness statement read to the court Bonheur’s aunt, Mary Sumaili, explained that she was with a group of Congolese family and friends, mostly children, when the tragedy unfolded at the popular swimming spot for youngsters.Ms Sumaili said Stella told her on the day of the incident that she often went swimming there and she later learned that Stella had helped rescue someone from the exact spot a year before.She said: “The sun was shinning and every one was happy, the children were playing in the water but were not going far out in the lake.”I stood on the stones right by the water’s edge just putting my feet in the water, I was watching the children playing.”Ms Sumaili, who cannot swim, said she saw her nephew who she said “can swim a little” get into distress without any warning.She added: “Suddenly he seemed to be going up and down in the water, he did this two or three times.”The court heard that at this point, around 4.50pm, Stella jumped into the lake and swam to Bonheur to save him.Ms Sumaili said “Bonheur grabbed onto Stella very hard”, adding that he was strong boy.”They both suddenly disappeared, I waited and kept looking but they didn’t come up again, I could not see any sign of them.”The jury were told that Stella’s sister Claudine tried to go in after her sibling and Bonheur but was not able to find them.Youngsters from the group ran to get help from members of the public who were nearby, three men were alerted to the danger and ran to help.Investigations found the youngsters’ deaths were a result of “tragic errors in judgement” as a jury returned verdicts of accidental death.Jacqueline Lake, senior coroner for Norfolk, said in conclusion: “One thing that has struck me during the course of this inquest is it is beyond belief people will remove warning signs.”As a result there were periods of time when there were no signs in place, so people like Mr Aketo [Stella’s father] thought the area was safe.”I would like to thank all those involved in attempting to rescue Stella and Bonheur, particularly members of the public who entered the water, at risk to themselves.”After hearing about mindless vandalism of people who remove signs it is good to know there are such people around.”No report will be made to prevent further deaths as “action has been taken”, she added.Verdict: Accidental death The nature reserve at Whitlingham Broad in Norfolk One thing that has struck me during the course of this inquest is it is beyond belief people will remove warning signsCoroner Jacqueline Lake Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Bientôt un vaccin contre les rétrovirus à lorigine de certains cancers

first_imgBientôt un vaccin contre les rétrovirus à l’origine de certains cancers ?France – Les rétrovirus oncogéniques constituent une famille particulière de virus à l’origine de certains cancers. Une équipe du CNRS qui les a étudiés a identifié un facteur leur permettant de se propager dans l’organisme. Des travaux qui permettront peut-être bientôt la mise au point d’un vaccin contre les cancers qu’ils occasionnent. Les rétrovirus sont des virus dont le génome est constitué d’ARN : une enzyme leur permet de synthétiser, à partir de cet ARN dit viral, une molécule d’ADN capable de s’intégrer dans l’ADN de l’hôte. Ils utilisent alors la machinerie cellulaire de ce dernier pour se multiplier (réplication). Comme le VIH (virus de l’immunodéficience humaine), responsable du sida, les rétrovirus oncogéniques font partie de cette catégorie, et sont, eux, à l’origine de cancers. Chez l’Homme, deux rétrovirus nommés HTLV et XMRV ont ainsi été associés à un type de leucémie et au cancer de la prostate. L’équipe de Thierry Heidmann à l’Institut Gustave Roussy a travaillé sur la capacité qu’ont les rétrovirus à se propager et à persister chez leurs hôtes, en échappant au système immunitaire. Les scientifiques ont montré que ce processus était gouverné par la protéine d’enveloppe de ces virus. Celle-ci a d’abord un rôle “mécanique” essentiel : elle induit la fusion des particules virales avec la membrane de la cellule cible, permettant la pénétration du rétrovirus dans la cellule de l’hôte. Son second rôle, tout aussi indispensable à la propagation du virus dans l’organisme, est une capacité immunosuppressive : elle inhibe totalement la réponse immunitaire de l’hôte. Les chercheurs ont réussi à localiser, dans la séquence d’acides aminés de la protéine d’enveloppe, le domaine responsable de cette propriété. En produisant un rétrovirus muté, dont la protéine d’enveloppe ne peut plus assurer ce second rôle, le pouvoir pathogène du virus est grandement diminué, car l’organisme infecté se défend en produisant de nombreux anticorps et une immunité cellulaire anti-virale. Les scientifiques espèrent aujourd’hui pouvoir élaborer de futurs vaccins, en travaillant sur la base de cette protéine mutée.Le 20 février 2010 à 12:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Six ways to protect your babys skin this winter

first_imgWinter is here, which means your baby needs extra care and attention. Baby skin requires a lot more nourishment during winter, as the temperature drop tends to make the skin dry. Winter also brings with it various skin problems for babies, as their skin is more delicate when compared to adults. Experts shares a few tips to nourish your baby’s skin: Oil massages: Nourishing the skin with regular oil massages before bath significantly reduces skin dryness and improve skin softness. Choose an oil infused with olive and winter cherry (Ashvagandha); this helps improve the skin tone and soothes the baby’s skin. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfBaby bath: It is advisable to bathe the baby once in two days with lukewarm water. If the water is too hot, it can hurt the top, protective layer of the skin. Bathing a baby for long can also strip the moisture off the skin. Hence, reducing bath time during winters is recommended. Using cleansers: Using a gentle cleanser infused with the goodness of aloe vera, almond oil and milk, can help prevent post-bath dryness in the baby’s skin and soothe excessively dry skin. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMoisturising: Using these post-bath enhances the skin’s wellness by locking in the moisture, which keeps the skin hydrated. Opt for a baby lotion enriched with natural oils and licorice (Yashtimadhu) to keep the skin supple and nourished. Creams: Using a baby cream with the goodness of country mallow (Bala) and licorice (Yashtimadhu) will condition and protect your baby’s skin, especially chapped cheeks, “crawler’s knee”, tender nose, and rubbed elbows. Wrapping the baby: Avoid wrapping your baby in a woollen sweater or blanket directly, as the rough fibre will scratch baby’s sensitive skin, leading to a rash. It’s best to use breathable winter clothing to keep the baby warm. Almond and olive oils, aloe vera, winter cherry, licorice, honey, and milk are a few handy herbs/ingredients which are known to lock in moisture and will help provide the best skin care for your baby during winters.last_img read more

Millions across India world take part in Yoga Day exercises

first_imgTens of thousands of schoolchildren, bureaucrats, homemakers, soldiers and ordinary folk took part in the exercise, which was repeated in all Indian state capitals. In Modi’s home state of Gujarat, public yoga events were organized at nearly 30,000 places, state officials said.“We are not only celebrating a day, but we are training the human mind to begin a new era of peace and harmony,” Modi told participants. “This is a program for the benefit of mankind, for a tension-free world and to spread the message of harmony.”In Taipei, more than 2,000 participants rolled out mats and performed 108 rounds of the “sun salutation” — the sequence of yoga poses often practiced at the beginning of a routine as the sun rises.“They give themselves a piece of time to observe their mind and their heart, which I think in the modern society we need a lot,” said practitioner Angela Hsi.Fazel Shah, an Indian pilot working for a Middle Eastern airline, rushed from the airport on his stopover in Taiwan to join the event.“Isn’t it awesome? I mean, just look at the number of people who are here, embracing it,” he said.He said yoga was probably born in India but belongs anywhere. “If you go up from where I am and look from the sky down, you don’t see borders, you don’t see religions, you don’t see nationalities, you just see one group of people. So, I just go down and meet up with them, that’s all”.

Guinness representatives said they hired more than 1,500 members of a global accounting firm to count the number of participants at the Delhi venue.India’s Defense Ministry said that soldiers on the Siachen Glacier, the world’s highest battleground in the Himalayas, and naval cadets on navy ships at sea also would be participating in the Yoga Day events.Although Modi’s message was one of peace and harmony, many in India were concerned that the push for yoga was an attempt by Hindu groups to give a boost to Hinduism.In the run-up to Yoga Day, many Muslims objected to the government’s exhortations to join in the public exercise programs. Some Muslim leaders said yoga was a Hindu practice.The government quickly dropped a plan for the “sun salutation” exercise, which many Muslims found objectionable because it implied the sun was a deity. Also dropped was the Hindu “om” chant. A young Exile Tibetan practices yoga at the Tibetan Children’s Village School in Dharmsala, India, Saturday, June 20, 2015.
