Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world. — Elie Wiesel

Good News of the Day:
They’ve waited all night for a chance to see their newborn babies, whom the hospital is holding until the medical bills are paid in full. “Holding babies until payment is common in Indonesia,” said Robin Lim, a midwife who founded birthing clinics in Aceh and the island of Bali. At this particular hospital in Bali, mothers who don’t pay are allowed in twice a day to feed their baby and change their baby’s diaper. Those fortunate enough to find the money may take their babies home. Others might relinquish their parental rights and place their babies up for adoption, Lim explained.” You worry, ‘Will I be able to deliver this baby safely into the world?’ But you shouldn’t have to worry, ‘How will I pay for it?’ ” said Lim, 54, a CNN Hero dubbed by locals as “Mother Robin.”
