“‘LAWLESSNESS:’ Cataloguing Portland’s Year of Violence… PORTLAND, Ore. – Residents of Oregon’s most populous city dealt with unprecedented homicides, rising property crime and a general feeling of “lawlessness” during 2022, but Portland leaders have taken some steps to set a different tone for the new year. “The rise in crime and the houseless and homeless population, that continues to be a challenge that I think the city is starting to get their arms wrapped around,” business owner Katherine Sealy told Fox News.,, Total violent crime increased marginally in 2022, but property crime rose 16% between January and October compared to the same period last year.

“U.S. life expectancy drops to the lowest level in 25 years… The average life expectancy for an American fell for the second year in a row, dropping from 77 to 76.4 years for people born in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Life expectancy had been climbing in recent years and peaked at 78.8 years in 2019, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A rise in deaths attributed to COVID-19 and drug overdoses fueled the decrease, according to the report, while heart disease and cancer remain leading causes of death.

“This conservative Christian couple in South Carolina have become outspoken advocates for abortion rights… A conservative Christian and former Ms. South Carolina, Jill was a Republican until last summer, when in the wake of new abortion restrictions in her state, she endured the “excruciating” experience of terminating a pregnancy with a baby who had a severe heart defect. Because of South Carolina’s abortion laws, Jill and her husband, Matt, had to spend weeks waiting for availability at a clinic out of state, fly there, endure wrenching time away from their family and support system, fly home the day after a painful three-day medical procedure, arrange for their daughter’s remains to be shipped back to them and find thousands of dollars to pay for it, “all while grieving the loss of your child,” Jill said.” – CNN
