The chaos in Europe led countries from China to Russia and Brazil to say they would hold off pledging money even as they signaled a willingness to eventually do so through the IMF. The Washington-based lender can attach strings to its aid.
The BRICS group of emerging economies, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, will decide on a “financial contribution” to the euro http://www.featherinhairextensions.com/feather-extensions-for-hair-c-1.html in “coming weeks,” said Arkady Dvorkovich, the economic adviser to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said she “has no plans or intentions to make any direct contribution” to Europe and that China told her it would also rather use the IMF.
Options for bolstering the IMF’s $391 billion war chest when the time comes include opening a trust fund or not rolling back a 2009 cash http://www.featherinhairextensions.com/. They also discussed increasing the amount of the fund’s Special Drawing Rights. The G-20 agreed to have the IMF create a new, six-month line of credit for countries “with strong policies and fundamentals.”
“Whatever number, you would have found it too small,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde told reporters. “It’s much better to have a very strong unanimous support to do whatever it takes.”
Mississippi voters can decide ‘personhood’ of the unborn, court rules
The idea for personhood was born during Roe v. Wade’s oral arguments, when Justice Potter Stewart said, “If it were established that an unborn fetus is a person, you would have an impossible case here.” Now, Personhood USA is trying to use the amendment to establish “personhood” as a direct challenge to the Roe v. Wade ruling.
The initiative has been gaining support across many http://www.featherinhairextensions.com/wholesale-sparkling-hair-flair-tinsel-extensions-shining-color-p-39.html, according to polls suggesting that it will probably pass.
The Mississippi State Medical Association and Doctors Against MS 26 are voicing concern about implications for the health care of women as well as their ability to practice medicine.
Clergy and church officials in the heavily religious state are split on the issue. Some anti-abortion religious groups say they think this step may be so extreme, it could lead to a Supreme Court ruling that actually strengthens Roe v. Wade.
The Democratic and Republican candidates for governor have both said they are behind the amendment, and Attorney General Jim Hood, a Democrat, has said he would enforce the measure if it passed.
While Barbour said he still has concerns, he said in a statement Friday that a group opposed to the measure is calling Mississippi http://www.featherinhairextensions.com/ and telling them he is opposed to it.
“These misleading calls were made without my knowledge, without my permission and against my wishes,” Barbour’s statement said. “I have demanded that this deception be stopped, and those responsible have assured me that no more calls will be made.”
The governor’s office identified the group as Mississippians for Healthy Families.
A statement from the group said the calls used “the exact words of Gov. Haley Barbour about the ‘unintended consequences’ caused by this dangerous initiative,” noting that the concerns expressed earlier in the week by the governor “echo those of doctors, nurses, clergy, parents and many pro-life Mississippians who are opposed to Initiative 26.”
Jonathan F. Will, director of the Bioethics and Health Law Center at the Mississippi College of Law, said he, too, is concerned that people may not be able to understand the complexity of the amendment.
