Romney Gets Booed: Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, spoke in front of the NAACP today in hopes of gaining more supporters from the African-American community. He was initially welcomed with appreciation and support while he discussed the need to lift Americans from poverty and close the gap between white and minority students. The mood in the room quickly transformed to angry boos at Romney’s promises to repeal unnecessary spending, the health care law and his criticisms of Obama. Overall, Romney’s manager for the African-American outreach said there was a lot more applause than boos and there isn’t a lot of word of whether or not they are concerned about the outcome from today’s campaign.
Aborting Abortion: Federal District Judge Daniel Jordan will be hearing arguments today on a Mississippi state law that was to go into effect on July 1, requiring more advanced clinical certifications for abortion-clinic nurses. The ruling will effect the Jackson Women’s Health Organization as it is the last abortion clinic in the state and they do not meet the requirements that this new law calls for. The Governor of Mississippi has said he is in favor of an abortion-free state and this new law will create a sort of road map on how states can more easily close abortion clinics while still adhering to the 1992 Supreme Court ruling in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey.
