Three Cleveland women reunited with families after years in captivity

Three Cleveland women were able to escape a house Monday night where they were being held captive for the past 10 years. Cleveland police and the FBI hailed 27-year-old Amanda Berry as a hero for her daring escape which led to the freedom of two other women held inside the house—Georgina “Gina” DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32. Police have arrested former school bus driver Ariel Castro 52, who lived at the house and was identified by Berry on the 911 call. They also arrested his brothers, Pedro Castro, 54, and Onil Castro, 50. All three are jailed pending charges in the case. (Source)

Abortion clinic regulations signed by McDonnell

Last month Gov. Bob McDonnell quietly approved rules holding Virginia abortion clinics to strict new hospital-like hygiene and architectural guidelines, a final administrative action before they are set to become permanent in June. The regulations adopted April 12 by Virginia’s Board of Health apply to clinics where at least five first trimester abortions are performed monthly. Clinics face state inspection to be licensed under rules that could require the facilities to make expensive upgrades by next year to stay in business. (Source)
