Chelsea Manning: Obama reduces sentence of Wikileaks source - BBC News

US President Barack Obama has commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence for leaking documents to Wikileaks in 2010.

The 29-year-old transgender US Army private, born Bradley Manning, will be freed on 17 May instead of her scheduled 2045 release.

She was sentenced to 35 years in 2013 for her role in leaking diplomatic cables to the anti-secrecy group.

The leak was one of the largest breaches of classified material in US history.

The commutation reduces Manning's sentence but is not a pardon, which some campaigners had called for.

Testimonials

I highly recommend Keith Simmonds/Floor Frog. Keith installed new cork flooring throughout our condo, and it is clear that he takes pride in his work. He is exceptionally detailed and does everything he can to keep the work area clean and minimize dust. The floor of our condo was slightly uneven in places, and Keith took the time to level it with precision. He also went above and beyond by guiding us through the process, answering many questions in a timely and patient manner, recommending the best place to purchase underlayment, delivering the flooring from the warehouse, putting the baseboards back on with a great caulk job, and coming in under budget. Thanks, Keith! You’re great! ~ Jamie, Iowa City

We would hire Keith Simmonds from Floor Frog again. It is always refreshing to work with someone who enjoys what they are doing and has devoted time and energy to perfecting their skills. We hired Keith to take up approximately 1100 square feet of carpet and vinyl and put down engineered hardwood. The apartment is shaped like a piece of pie so NOT an easy project. Beautiful results - flooring is tucked neatly under beautiful baseboards we didn't want to disturb. His superior craftsmanship was appreciated, along with his guidance in selecting materials, superior project management, attention to detail, and excellent pricing. He is a skilled craftsman who can be trusted to bring a project in on time and on budget. He was respectful and so very nice to work with. We would definitely hire him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to a friend. Keith under-promised and over-delivered -- that's a great combination.  ~ 4till, Cedar Rapids

Abortion Rate In U.S. Falls To Lowest Level Since Roe v. Wade : The Two-Way : NPR

The abortion rate in the United States fell to its lowest level since the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion nationwide, a new report finds.

The report by the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports legalized abortion, puts the rate at 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age (ages 15-44) in 2014. That's the lowest recorded rate since the Roe decision in 1973. The abortion rate has been declining for decades — down from a peak of 29.3 in 1980 and 1981.

The report also finds that in 2013, the total number of abortions nationwide fell below 1 million for the first time since the mid-1970s. In 2014 — the most recent year with data available — the number fell a bit more, to 926,200. The overall number had peaked at more than 1.6 million abortions in 1990, according to Guttmacher.
