Maybe Congressman Mike Pence is unaware that about 44 million people in this country have no health insurance, and another 38 million have inadequate health insurance and maybe he is also unaware that many of those uninsured are women. Either Pence doesn’t know or doesn’t care that these women still need health care services, even when they are unable to afford it or have lost their health insurance due to unemployment or other hardships. When Mike Pence proposed to defund Planned Parenthood he willingly forgot about nearly 1.2 million of youth and adults that utilize Planned Parenthood as their only form of health care.
The Arkansas Supreme Court recently announced its decision to grant a mini-trial or evidentiary hearing to the three men known as ”The West Memphis Three“ who were convicted of the heinous murders of three eight year old boys (James M. Moore, Steven E. Branch and Christopher M. Byers) in West Memphis, Arkansas in May of 1993. The decision by the Arkansas Supreme Court for a new trial was ordered to decide whether new DNA analysis and other evidence not included in the 1994 trials could shed new light on the murders and possibly point to another killer/s.
