Germany urged to stop support of Iran’s mullah-regime

BERLIN – The German government is under fire for not reversing its largely pro-regime policy and for providing humanitarian aid to an alleged Iranian mass murderer – and possible replacement as the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic – who oversaw the country’s brutal justice system for a decade.

The possible successor of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, is currently in a neurological center for treatment in the German city of Hanover.

“The nationwide protests against the Islamist mullah regime in Iran make it obvious that the federal government’s Iran policy has reached a

Members of support group for Las Vegas victims relive trauma with …

A hospital support group is working to ease the pain for victims of a mass shooting incident.

Palmdale (Calif.) Regional Medical Center has been hosting free meetings for victims of the October shooting in Las Vegas. It includes local residents who had traveled to the country music festival in Las Vegas and were wounded in the Oct. 1 shootings, as well as people who witnessed the shootings but were not physically wounded.

Azadeh Afsahi Parsa, a marriage and family therapist who practices in nearby Lancaster, Calif., contacted the hospital soon after the mass shooting incident, in which 58 died and more than 500 were wounded. Parsa said she felt she needed to do something to help the victims, a few of whom previously were clients of hers. She found out the closest support group was 40 miles away.

“The hospital was happy to help me, so I didn’t have to

Support groups open to those struggling after mass shooting

Steve Marcus

People attend during a vigil, marking the one-week anniversary of the Oct. 1 mass shooting, at Sahara Avenue and The Strip Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017.

People struggling to cope with the holidays after the Route 91 Harvest festival mass shooting are being urged to reach out for emotional support.

“For those who lost family, friends, or colleagues from the shooting, facing the holidays, anniversaries and other special events without our loved one is very painful,” said Ellen Richardson-Adams, outpatient administrator for the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.

“For those who survived the shooting with or without physical injury, the holidays also can present emotional challenges because you may not feel celebratory or you may feel stress or anxiety doing things that normally wouldn’t bother you such as traveling or being out and about in crowds,”

‘I’m a Mass Murderer’: Former Abortion Doctor Testifies in Support of Heartbeat Bill

Dr. Kathi Aultman was once an avid supporter of a woman’s right to have an abortion.

“When I entered medical school, I believed that the availability of abortion on demand was solely an issue of women’s rights and during my residency I moonlighted doing abortions,” Aultman testified in front of a Congressional committee Thursday.

“I was always fascinated by the tiny but perfectly formed limbs, intestines, kidneys, and other organs and I enjoyed looking at their amazing cellular detail under the microscope, she recalled.

“I realize it is hard to imagine someone being able to do that and be so detached, but because of my training and conditioning, a human fetus seemed no different from the chick embryos I dissected in college. I could view them with strictly scientific interest devoid of any of the emotions with which I would normally view a baby,” she explained in her written testimony

Aultman,

Americans who live closer to a mass shooting are more likely to support gun regulation

The deadly mass public shooting in Las Vegas has reignited the debate about regulating firearms. Advocates of gun rights say that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” while gun control activists argue that “there’s a disconnect between what the American public wants on this issue and what [our] elected officials are doing about it.” And some will wonder whether mass shootings have any effect on public opinion.

They do — but in a very specific way. In our research, we discovered that people who live close to a mass shooting are more likely to support gun control than those who
