Anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley, whose "The Nuremberg Files" Web site included a virtual "hit list" of targeted individuals including abortion providers, security officers who protect abortion clinics, pro-choice activists, clinic owners, clinic workers, pro-choice judges and politicians, has sued Internet service provider Mindspring for $251 million.
Horsley claims that Mindspring illegally shut down his Web site in February in an act of censorship. "If telephone companies shut people's telephones down because of what they believe or because of what they were saying and they weren't breaking the law, then I'm sure the American people would understand why that has to be stopped," stated Horsley.
Mindspring pulled the plug on February 5, three days after a federal jury ruled that creators of "The Nuremberg Files" Web site and similar "un-wanted" posters featuring pictures of abortion providers violated the Freedom of Access to Clinics Act (FACE) and federal racketeering statutes by inciting violence against doctors and their patients. Plaintiffs were awarded over 107 million dollars in the case.
Mindspring spokesperson Ed Hansen explained that "The Nuremberg Files" Web site was removed because Horsely violated "one or more" of the company's appropriate use policies.
Horsely now hosts the site on his own server. The site continues to urge readers to send in abortion doctors' addresses, their license plate numbers, and the names of their children and still contains the famed "hit list," in which murdered doctors' names have been crossed out and wounded doctors are shaded in gray.

7/29/2014 Extensive Female Genital Mutilation Study To Be Conducted in the US - The Obama administration plans to conduct a large study on female genital mutilation (FGM) to try to assess how many girls and women in the US are at risk, and how many have already experienced, FGM.
According to experts, FGM tends to take place during summer break when parents take their daughter outside of the country for the practice.
Jaha Dukureh, a 24-year-old woman who grew up in Gambia, experienced FGM there, and then child marriage in the US, started a petition that gained more than 220,000 supporters. . . .
