BREAKING NEWS: Massive Chemical Weapon Attack In Syria!!!

BREAKING NEWS: Massive Chemical Weapon Attack In Syria!!! | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"Over 1,000 dead including scores of children.  The Assad regime is said to be behind the attacks.  Some reports put the death toll at greater than 1,300 killed including those who died from shelling related to the attack.  The pictures and video  were supposedly taken directly by civilians on the ground in Syria after the initial attack.  The attack was said to have taken place in the Ghouta region just outside of Damascus.  If these reports are correct I believe this will be the deadliest attack in the history of this conflict in Syria and one of the most deadliest chemical weapon attacks against civilians in history."

Vague Louisiana Bill Would Force Brain-Dead Pregnant Women to Serve as Incubators

Vague Louisiana Bill Would Force Brain-Dead Pregnant Women to Serve as Incubators | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

While shocking to any reasonable person’s conscience, these laws are surprisingly common. Thirty-one states have laws that restrict a pregnant woman’s ability to direct her doctor to remove life-sustaining treatment. In states like Texas, even if a pregnant woman explicitly says that she doesn’t want life-sustaining treatment, her express wishes can be ignored based on the state’s claimed interest in the fetus she is carrying.

The shocking testimony of soldiers who rape

The shocking testimony of soldiers who rape | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
“When we rape we feel free”, a young soldier in the Congolese Army confesses with astonishing candour. In a country where it’s estimated that 48 women are raped every hour, his actions have become virtually the norm, and not the exception. The Democratic Republic of Congo has born the brunt of vicious wars and fighting almost continuously since 1996, concentrated in the east of the country. One of the reasons the women repeat to anyone who bothers to ask them is: “where there’s fighting there’s rape”.

But many of those who knew Dr. Tiller as a colleague and friend are no doubt fortified by remembering one of his favorite sayings: “Attitude is everything.”

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"We always seemed to really click together, personality-wise," Aamina Morrison says of Diamond Williams, whom she first met in a Philadelphia LGBT youth group 12 years ago. “Like the issues of oppression we shared or things that came up in her own transition. She didn't realize those little things she did for me right there helped me see the possibility for who I am today."

Williams was brutally murdered last month, her body dismembered and thrown in a field. A 43-year-old Philadelphia man named Charles Sargent, who has previously been charged with rape and aggravated assault, confessed to the crime and led the police to Williams's remains. He will be tried for murder.

Morrison is now co-director of the peer-led Trans-Health Information Project, which, along with other LGBTQ and social justice groups in Philadelphia, is demanding justice for Williams. They believe Williams was targeted because she was transgender and working in the sex trade. Bringing Sargent to trial isn’t enough, they say; they want changes to how police and the media respond to violence against members of the transgender community.

Morrison has her own reason to believe that if Philadelphia police treated transgender victims of violence better, the friend she remembers from her youth group would still be alive. She says that when she saw Sargent’s photograph in the press after his confession, “it immediately took me back to an incident I had with him."

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot Mic Such an infuriating issue should attract the ire of the feminist community, but so far there are mostly crickets.


Recent legislation regarding the forced sterilizations performed on incarcerated women in California prisons evokes a muted time in U.S. history when sexist, racist, classist and ableist eugenics policies were orchestrated by the state.

800 Dead Babies Discovered in Septic Tank Of Home for Unwed Mothers

800 Dead Babies Discovered in Septic Tank Of Home for Unwed Mothers | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
Police are investigating the discovery of 800 long-dead babies found in the septic tank at a home for unwed mothers in western Ireland. The Home (that is its actual name and, yes, it does sound freakishly ominous) housed thousands of pregnant and unwed — "fallen"— women between 1925 and 1961. The women left after they'd paid for their stay in indentured servitude. Their children, reports The Washington Post, may not have been so lucky.
