Kansas can pull Planned Parenthood funding - appeals court

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 09:13
(Reuters) - A federal appeals court panel on Tuesday upheld a 2011 Kansas law that would stop federal family planning money the state receives from flowing to two Planned Parenthood clinics. The ruling overturned a Kansas federal judge's preliminary injunction that stopped the state from eliminating the federal funding to family planning clinics Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri operates in Wichita and Hays. No abortion services are provided at the health centers and Planned Parenthood has said they would lose more than $330,000 in funding, their eligibility for a low-cost drug-purchasing program and it likely would lead to the Hays clinic closing. Planned Parenthood said it was reviewing its options after the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and remained committed to Kansas women and their families.

Aretha Franklin wishes for a little more music on 72nd birthday

Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 09:09

Aretha Franklin performs onstage at BET Honors 2014 at Warner TheatreBy Alicia Powell NEW YORK (Reuters) - On her 72nd birthday on Tuesday, soul singer Aretha Franklin is hoping her next year brings a new album for herself and record deals for the musical members of her family. Franklin, known as the "Queen of Soul" for her powerful voice and range, celebrated the milestone at a star-studded birthday party in New York over the weekend, attended by Denzel Washington and record label executive Clive Davis. The singer forged her career as a towering figure of popular music during the 1960s and 1970s, with a long string of hits including the empowered anthem "Respect" and funk-infused "Chain of Fools." Franklin talked to Reuters about her love for New York City, whether she'll take the Broadway stage and what she gave to U.S. President Barack Obama around the time when she sang at his first inauguration. But he's also in 'After Midnight' with Toni Braxton so we're just waiting for him to finish so he can finish my tracks.

Immigrant detainees resume hunger strike at Washington state facility

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 09:05
By Bryan Cohen SEATTLE (Reuters) - Dozens of detainees at an immigration holding center in Washington state have begun refusing meals, renewing a hunger strike launched by hundreds of inmates earlier this month, attorneys and activists supporting the group said on Tuesday. The protesters have been demanding improved conditions for the 1,300 inmates held at the privately run Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma and an end to routine U.S. deportations of immigrants who have entered the United States illegally. Participation in the original hunger strike dwindled as the fasting wore on, with several holdouts segregated from the general population and placed under medical observation in a move protesters said was a tactic facility managers aimed at weakening their resolve. But Angelica Chazaro, an immigration attorney and University of Washington law professor who represents several of the inmates, said about 70 detainees began refusing food again on Monday after managers failed to improve conditions as promised.
