WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's disease are women, and now some scientists are questioning the long-held assumption that it's just because they tend to live longer than men.
NEW YORK (AP) — Now that same-sex marriage is legal nationwide, religious conservatives are focusing on preserving their right to object. Their concerns are for the thousands of faith-based charities, colleges and hospitals that want to hire, fire, serve and set policy according to their religious beliefs, notably that gay relationships are morally wrong.
Hundreds of thousands of people on Sunday packed gay pride events from Chicago to New York City, Seattle to San Francisco, to celebrate a freshly endorsed right to marry. Gay rights activists outside the United States also organized rallies to draw attention to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriages.
