Forty years after the Roe v. Wade ruling made abortion legal in the U.S., the issue of abortion remains divisive and emotional as reproductive rights are under attack.
On Jan. 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its Roe v. Wade decision in a case that had been filed by “Jane Roe,” an unmarried woman who wanted to legally end her pregnancy.
The decision, which pointed out that a woman’s constitutional right to privacy included the right to terminate her pregnancy, has saved women’s lives by making abortion safer and easier to obtain.
In 1965, 17 percent of all pregnancy and childbirth-related deaths resulted from illegal abortion, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
In 2007, the most recent year for which information is available, six women were reported to have died from complications from legal abortions, according to the CDC, with no reported deaths resulting from illegal abortions.
Abortion is now one of the most commonly performed clinical procedures in the United States. Since 1973, an estimated 54,559,615 abortions have been performed in the U.S., according to information from the Guttmacher Institute.
The Supreme Court noted in 1992, in its Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey ruling, that “the ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives.”
And 40 years later, the ruling still has popular support, according to a Pew Research Center poll, with 63 percent of Americans believing that Roe v. Wade should not be completely overturned, compared to 29 percent who believe it should be. Read the rest of this entry »
A Winthrop University fraternity has been suspended for engaging in verbal hazing and other prohibited practices, officials said Friday.
As a result of the action, the Winthrop chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha “may not hold events or conduct activities on-campus, reserve (university) space, or utilize any other university resources” until further notice, according to a suspension letter issued to the chapter Friday.
The letter was issued by Winthrop Dean of Students Bethany Marlowe, in coordination with the national office of the fraternity.
“While the preliminary inquiry indicates that what occurred was primarily verbal in nature, all the involved activities are not allowed, either under Winthrop rules or under state law,” Masters added.
She said officials first received a report about incidents involving such behaviors in late December.
So far, no indications of injury or alcohol involvement have been found. Winthrop Police are continuing interviews related to the matter.
The summary suspension “will provide time for the university and your national organization to complete an investigation regarding these allegations,” the letter continued.
Hazing is a violation of Winthrop’s Student Conduct Code as well as S.C. state law, said Winthrop University spokeswoman Rebecca Masters.
Under state law, hazing includes “unauthorized treatment by the superior student of a subordinate student of a tyrannical, abusive, shameful, insulting, or humiliating nature.”
When an investigation provides “substantial evidence” that a student has committed hazing, the student “may be dismissed, expelled, suspended, or punished,” the law says.
Individual student hazing violations would be referred to university officials for handling through the student judicial system. Outcomes in such cases remain private under federal law.
Police in North Carolina say a deaf man was stabbed several times after his sign language was mistaken for gang signs by another man.
Burlington Police Sgt. Mark Yancey said 45-year-old Terrance Ervin Daniels was using sign language with another deaf man. He said a third person saw them, thought they were flashing gang signs and stabbed Daniels with a kitchen knife. A neighbour saw the victim and called emergency personnel.
Daniels is in stable condition at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill after Wednesday’s incident.

It’s becoming tougher to find flu shots in Mecklenburg County.
At Walker’s Drug Store in Ballantyne, Amy Kern has reached into her flu shot supply a lot in the past few months.
“I’ve done about double this year compared to last,” she said. “I have about 20 left.”
Kern said she originally ordered 100 shots for this year and then placed additional orders for about 75 more. But now, the four manufacturers she uses say there’s no more to go around.
“I say we will probably run out by mid-next week,” Kern said.
That pharmacy isn’t alone. Brooke Loucks, a college student home on winter break in Ballantyne, told Eyewitness News she ran into some problems trying to get her shot on Thursday.
“I went to the CVS down at Blakeney and they didn’t have any,” she said. She then went to another CVS, which told her it was going to run out soon, too. She said she was lucky to get hers.
Pike’s Pharmacy in Charlotte said it, too, had run out after giving 200 more shots than last year. Read the rest of this entry »
Notice anything about your first paycheck of the year?
Even though Congress and the President agreed not to raise taxes on Americans
making less than $400,000 a year, the agreement did not extend one tax cut that had been in place for the last two years.
If you earn a paycheck, you’re paying 2% more for Social Security.
About $1000 on an income of $50,000. It’s now 6.2% instead of 4.2, and many say that will make a big difference in how they manage their money.
A.J. Persinger is really good at diagnosing problems under the hood, and it didn’t take him long to notice something a little off in his paycheck this week.
“When I woke up on the first of January I knew my taxes were going up,” Persinger told WBTV. “And when I got my check and looked at my statement it was real instant, I could tell by comparing mine from this year to last year.”
From the garage to the front counter, blue collar to white, if you get a paycheck, you’re paying more.
“The withholding rate used to be 6.2% and they reduced it to 4.2% to stimulate the economy and that provision expired and it was not extended,” said Gary Morgan, a Certified Public Accountant in Salisbury. “Every person that gets a W2, if they make $1, their taxes went up.”
Today Morgan was in a webinar learning about the new changes to the tax law this year. He says the increased Social Security tax can’t be avoided.
