Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
New Abortion Restrictions Clear State Senate
It could soon be harder for an Ohio minor to get an abortion without her parents’ consent.
Under a bill approved by the state Senate Tuesday, a judge considering whether to let a girl bypass parental consent requirements would have to ask if she understand the physical and emotional impacts of having an abortion, and also ask if she was coached on how to answer.
Supporters say the legislation is needed to rein in judges who frequently give approval, though opponents contend it’s a political move.
The measure has already passed the state House. The Senate and House must now reconcile their bills before sending a final version to the Governor.
