Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area�s new clinic in Aurora, Illinois finally opened its doors today after being cleared of allegations of fraud. Aurora�s mayor granted the clinic an occupancy permit after three attorneys found the city had no legal basis to prevent the clinic from opening, reports the Chicago Tribune.
"It�s always a victory when we can expand access to reproductive health care services, including abortion services," Steve Trombley, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area told the Associated Press. "If our opponents block us from entering any community, it opens the door to them blocking us from going into every community."

1/27/2016 Taiwan Elects First Woman President - In a landslide victory, the leader of Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Tsai Ing-wen won the country's presidential election, becoming the first woman in Taiwan's history to hold the position.
Emphasizing her party's commitment to maintaining Taiwan's independence from China, Tsai won over young voters eager to usher in a political changing of the guard following some 70 years of dominance by the pro-Chinese unification party, the Kuomintang (KMT), chaired by presidential opponent Eric Chu. . . .
