Boston St. Patrick's parade organizers deny banning gay marchers

Boston St. Patrick's parade organizers deny banning gay marchersBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) – Organizers of Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade denied on Thursday that they told a gay veterans’ group its members could not march openly in one of the largest U.S. celebrations of the holiday and accused the group of breaking parade rules. The veterans’ group, OUTVETS, said late on Tuesday it had been informed by parade organizers it would be excluded from this year’s parade, rekindling a decades-long fight over inclusion that had looked settled in 2015 when the group was first allowed to march. “OUTVETS has not been officially notified that they will not be allowed to march in the Parade,” the Allied War Veterans Council, which organizes the 116-year-old event honoring Ireland’s patron saint, said in a statement posted to its website on Thursday.

Governor John Kasich, a Republican presidential candidate, is expected to sign the bill, which the state Senate had already passed. Planned Parenthood said the bill would hinder lower-income women's access to testing for sexually transmitted diseases, HIV tests and well-baby programs.

Doctors deny cutting off Alabama man’s penis

(Reuters) – An Alabama man’s claim that his penis was amputated recently in a circumcision gone wrong is entirely without merit, an attorney representing the doctors being sued said on Wednesday. Attorney Michael Florie said the plaintiff, 56-year-old Johnny Lee Banks Jr., has had both legs amputated due to severe diabetes, suffers from end-stage kidney failure and the hospital named in the lawsuit has labored to keep him alive. “Every allegation in the lawsuit is false,” Florie said. It’s an outrage.” Florie, along with attorneys for Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama, where the operation allegedly took place, has moved to dismiss the case and sanction the plaintiff’s lawyer for suing before seeing the medical records.
