Center for Reproductive Rights Statement on Conclusion of Grand Jury Investigation of Dr. George Tiller

On Thursday, July 3, a citizen-convened grand jury refused to indict Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller. The Center is pleased that the grand jury investigation has finally come to a close. The conclusion comes as a great relief to Dr. Tiller's patients as it ends the threat to patient privacy and future requests for confidential medical records and vindicates Dr. Tiller.

Russian Federation: Contemporary art - an issue of freedom of expression, not extremism.

The government has acknowledged the historical neglect of social care, and is trying hard to make amends. Last month, the prime minister launched a major consultation on reform of the care system. Importantly, he promised a green paper before the next election. This is a brave move, as it will broach the classic big questions. Do we want a national or local service? Should it be universal or targeted? And what mix of public and private funds should be involved? By digging up these difficult issues, the green paper is a gamble for the government. If it also offers a fresh approach to public services, it could also be a real test of progressive politics. By Sophie Moullin, Reseach Fellow, Public Services
