AG Curtis Hill Continues Efforts To Prevent Opening Of Unlicensed Abortion Clinic

first_img Attorney General Curtis Hill on Monday asked a U.S appellate court to stop the immediate opening of an unlicensed abortion clinic in South Bend.On May 31, a federal district court granted a preliminary injunction allowing the Texas-based Whole Woman’s Health Alliance to open a clinic for providing chemical abortions despite lacking the required license from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH). In chemical abortions, one type of medication is used to kill the fetus followed by another medication to induce the woman to expel it.On June 2, Attorney General Hill appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. He also filed a motion with the district court seeking an immediate stay that would have prevented the unlicensed clinic from opening until Indiana’s appeal could be considered.On June 7, the federal district court denied the motion for a stay – prompting Attorney General Hill to seek the intervention of the U.S. Court of Appeals in issuing a stay.“The district court has declared that something as ordinary and fundamental as state licensing – which the state does for everything from nursing homes to daycares – can be invalidated in the name of the right to abortion,” Attorney General Hill said. “This ruling turns the right to abortion into a cudgel against state licensing laws that the Supreme Court long ago declared to be perfectly valid.”The ISDH previously has denied Whole Woman’s Health a license after the entity failed to provide such requested information as documentation about the safety record of affiliated clinics in other states.“The preliminary injunction threatens irreparable harm to Indiana women because it allows Whole Woman’s Health to open an unlicensed and unregulated abortion clinic,” Attorney General Hill said. “Indiana has no way of ensuring that an unlicensed abortion clinic is complying with its other requirements or to ensure that patients are being given safe and proper care.”Further, Attorney General Hill noted, a licensed abortion clinic already operates west of South Bend in the town of Merrillville.“The whole point of professional licensing regulation is to protect consumers from suffering injury,” Attorney General Hill said. “The risk of harm to women by allowing unlicensed clinics to dispense chemical abortions outweighs any speculative burdens faced by Whole Woman’s Health or women who must otherwise travel a mere 65 miles for an abortion.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

A transition for Transition

first_imgA modest publication that became Africa’s pre-eminent cultural and literary magazine in the 1960s recently celebrated a homecoming of sorts — in print, no less.Founded in 1961 in Kampala, Uganda, as Transition, a Journal of the Arts, Culture & Society, the magazine that published work by the likes of novelist Chinua Achebe, poet Christopher Okigbo, and future Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka has been housed at Harvard’s Hutchins Center for African and African American Research for the past 26 years.In July, Transition returned to print in Africa.A partnership with Jalada, a pan-African writers’ collective based in Nairobi, allowed the magazine’s latest issue to be printed in Kenya, from where it is being distributed across the continent.It is the first time that Transition has been published in Africa since the early 1970s. Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher Jr. University Professor and director of the Hutchins Center, then revived it as “the magazine of Africa and the diaspora” in 1991. Since then, it has been distributed mostly to U.S.-based subscribers. In a press release, Gates, who is Transition’s publisher, said he was thrilled to see the magazine’s reappearance on the continent.“The partnership of Transition and Jalada and the opportunity to print in Kenya mark an exciting and historic moment to celebrate the magazine in the region where it was conceived and made such an important intellectual contribution to post-independence Africa,” said Gates.Nagwa Abdelmottaleb, who owns a company with her husband in Egypt that translates world literature into Arabic, looks through Transition Magazine at the Harvard Book Store. Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff PhotographerFounded by Rajat Neogy, a Ugandan writer of Indian descent, Transition became a spirited forum for intellectual debate in the 1960s, a critical time for the continent as countries gained independence from European colonial powers.Led by Neogy, the literary magazine took a risky plunge into politics. In 1968, after it criticized Ugandan President Milton Obote’s increasingly authoritarian rule, Neogy was jailed on charges of sedition. The magazine closed until he resurrected it in Ghana in 1971, but five years later he folded it for lack of funds. He died in 1995 in the United States.But even when the magazine was financially troubled, Transition’s pages attracted literary stars such as future Nobel laureates Nadine Gordimer and V.S. Naipaul, and distinguished African writers like David Rubadiri from Malawi, Cameron Duodu from Ghana, and Ali Mazrui from Kenya. The magazine also supported the Civil Rights Movement in the United States and published work by James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, and Martin Luther King Jr.The latest edition of the storied journal features essays, fiction, poems, and visual arts pieces on the theme of fear by contributors as notable as Paul Theroux, Cornel West, and Sudanese writer Leila Aboulela, as well as emerging African talents.Over the decades, the publication has undergone a startling physical transformation. Its first issue was printed in black and white and was awkwardly designed, and the articles were interspersed with ads for tractors, Mercedes-Benz cars, Kampala pharmacies, and other local businesses. The latest edition is handsomely printed by Indiana University Press.With its publication on the continent, both the magazine and African writers will benefit from the partnership, said Alejandro de la Fuente, Transition editor and director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center. This fall, de la Fuente will teach a seminar on the history of Transition. Students will take part in designing, editing, and producing the journal and will be listed as student associate editors.Sara Bruya, Transition’s managing editor, lauded the collaboration that began two years ago when she met with members of the Jalada collective in Kampala.“This is huge for us,” Bruya said. “We have been waiting for this to happen for a long time. It will help Transition expand in many new and exciting directions.”last_img read more
