'Obviously deception:' STIs complicate consent definitions

An anonymous UNC graduate shared her harrowing story of being in an abusive relationship that ended with her diagnosis with an incurable STI.  The idea of full disclosure when it comes to STDs is not always an easy subject to bring up to a new partner, especially if open communication isn't strong. But the reality is that the law can be applied in certain scenarios when STI cases are not reported. That's why UNC and other agencies in Chapel Hill are advertising resources so students can know the facts and avoid getting hurt, both emotionally and physically.

This guide should help you find them by pointing out a few of the best. Just a reminder that these views are my own and do not represent those of The Daily Tar Heel.

Chapel Hills midwives aim to give mothers the birth they want

Though the practice has fallen in and out of popularity in the U.S. as medicine has become increasingly professionalized, midwives today deliver about 15 percent of births at UNC Hospitals.   “There’s a lot more interest today in women to have more say in their healthcare and more involvement in their labor and pregnancy,” said Kathy Higgins, the division director of midwifery services in the UNC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  “For midwives, that is their basic philosophy, in providing education and supporting them in their desires for their pregnancy and birthing experience.”

California leads the way in expanding access to abortion

The California Senate has passed a bill that would require universities in the state to provide medication-based abortion through student health centers.
