Facebook and Apple will now pay for women to freeze eggs. The tech giants will reportedly offer up to $20,000 in benefits for female employees to preserve their fertility. When successful, egg freezing allows women to put their fertility on hold until they’re ready to become parents. Opponents believe the practice could limit women’s choices by making them feel required to delay childbearing in order to keep their jobs or excel at their work.


What’s Your Take? Is egg freezing a good idea?

Responding To Ebola

Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has come under sharp fire from congressional leaders after the admitted errors in the handling of Ebola cases. Amid calls from lawmakers  for Dr. Frieden’s resignation, President Obama has appointed Ron Klain as his new  Ebola Response Coordinator or ’Czar’. Klain has served as chief of staff to both Vice President Biden and former Vice President Al Gore.  

Mr. Klain reportedly “comes to the job with strong management credentials, extensive federal government experience overseeing complex operations and has good working relationships with leading members of Congress, as well as senior Obama administration officials, including the president.”

 House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Edward R. Royce has joined many in Congress who have questioned Klain's lack of medical credentials. Klain will report directly to the president’s homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, and the president's national security adviser, Susan Rice.”

What's Your Take?

A ten year old Pennsylvania boy is being held in the Wayne County Correctional Facility and charged as an adult with criminal homicide, after admitting that he killed a ninety year old woman. Tristen Kurilla told police he was angry at the woman because she had yelled at him when he entered her room. He said he wanted to ask her a question. The boy admitted to grabbing a wooden cane, holding it against 90-year-old Helen Novak's throat for several seconds and punching her in the throat and stomach, according to the police affidavit. Kurilla will reportedly remain in adult prison after his attorney Bernard Brown removed his bail plea due to his parents not being ready to take him into their custody,

Weekly Address: What You Need to Know About Ebola

"I want people to understand that the dangers of you contracting Ebola, the dangers of a serious outbreak are extraordinarily low. But we are taking this very seriously at the highest levels of government. We are going to be able to manage this particular situation, but we have to look towards the future. And if we are not responding internationally in an effective way, and if we do not set up the kind of preparedness and training in our public health infrastructure here in the United States, not just for this outbreak, but for future outbreaks, then we could have problems."

– President Obama, October 15, 2014

In this week’s address, the President discussed what the United States is doing to respond to Ebola, both here at home and abroad, and the key facts Americans need to know.
