Abortions Rights Rally in Love Park, SEPTA El Train Jumper, Regusters Prosecution Rests
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 09/10/14 1:46 am | updated: 09/10/14 1:46 am
Abortion rights groups rallied in Love Park Tuesday afternoon to demand federal funding for abortions. Jess Aarons of the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals says it takes bravery to take on the issue of abortion funding at this time, when abortion opponents have succeeded at curbing access to abortion across the country, but she says the issues are related. The group is urging repeal of the 30-year-old Hyde amendment which bans federal funding for abortion. Health reform opponents have claimed the Affordable Care Act eroded the ban. The rally was part of a road trip that’s heading to Washington to press its case.

SEPTA Police say a 16-year-old suspect risked his life Monday afternoon, jumping atop a Market-Frankford El train at the Erie-Torresdale Station, then leaping onto a second moving train as it pulled in. The suspect threatened to “punch a SEPTA cashier in the face” during a fare dispute, wrestling with officers then slipping away, jumping a turnstile and running down the platform with officers in pursuit. The suspect, slipped between cars, and climbed onto the roof of the stopped train, bounding onto the second train as it arrived. He was caught nearby and Police rushed the suspect to the hospital where it was determined he suffered no serious injuries.

The prosecution has rested and the defense has begun with a single character witness in the trial of a 21-year-old woman charged in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl taken from her West Philadelphia school in January of 2013. The little girl was found abandoned and suffering from severe internal injuries the next day. Latasha Moore, the sister of defendant Christina Regusters, has taken the stand as a character witness, telling the jury her sister has a good reputation for being a peaceful, law abiding person. There could be more defense character testimony when court resumes Wednesday morning.
