From The Associated Press By Curt Woodward Pharmacists have sued Washington state over a new regulation that requires the sale of emergency contraception, also known as the "morning-after pill." In a lawsuit filed in federal court, a pharmacy owner and two pharmacists say the rule that took effect Thursday violates their civil rights by forcing them into "choosing between their livelihoods and their deeply held religious and moral beliefs." The state ruled earlier this year that druggists who believe emergency contraceptives are tantamount to abortion can't stand in the way of a patient's right to the drugs. Tango’s Take

From Associated Press By Kristin M. Hall FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — Army Spc. John Luckey and his wife, Kerry, already had five children and no plans for more when he came home from a year's duty in Iraq. But there was romance in the California air when the entire family went on a vacation to see the giant redwoods. Nine months later, Kerry Luckey gave birth to a daughter, EmLee Rae. Apparently many military couples at Fort Campbell celebrated like the Luckeys when about 20,000 soldiers with the 101st Airborne Division came home last fall, because the military hospital here is now seeing a baby boom. The hospital expects to deliver 210 babies a month soon, nearly twice the usual number of deliveries, and more are expected at other nearby hospitals in Tennessee and Kentucky.
From The Courier Mail By Peta Hellard GREG Norman is stalling on signing a nine-figure divorce settlement with his estranged wife Laura. While the Great White Shark agreed to tentative terms in a brief settlement outlined five weeks ago, he is yet to sign a binding document to confirm the exact financial split of the couple's fortune, estimated to be worth about $300 million. The stalling tactics could result in Laura Norman, married to the golfer for 25 years, losing tens of millions of dollars from the undisclosed figure agreed to by her husband during negotiations last month. Lawyers for the estranged couple, who have two adult children, appeared in Florida's Martin County Court yesterday in a status hearing to update Judge Lawrence Mirman on the progress of the case. Norman's lawyers told the court the 52-year-old had been unable to sign the documents because he had been away.
From The Associated Press By Meraiah Foley SYDNEY, Australia – A U.S. health expert urged governments worldwide Tuesday to endorse circumcision to slow the spread of HIV, saying men without the procedure have a greater risk of contracting the virus from infected female partners. Experts at an AIDS conference in Sydney also warned that HIV infection rates were rising among men who have sex with men in developing countries because of discrimination and lack of access to health services. The World Health Organization says male circumcision reduces the risk of female-to-male transmission of the disease by around 60 percent. But only 30 percent of men worldwide have had the procedure, mostly in countries where it is common for religious or health reasons. Tango’s Take
