Obama pushes for more U.S. ice-breaking might in Arctic

Obama delivers remarks to the GLACIER Conference at the Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, AlaskaBy Roberta Rampton ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Tuesday will propose a faster timetable for buying a new heavy icebreaker for the U.S. Arctic, where quickly melting sea ice has spurred more maritime traffic, and the United States has fallen far behind Russian resources. Obama will say that the government should buy a heavy icebreaker by 2020 - a year when routine Arctic marine transit is expected - instead of the previous goal of 2022. The White House said move is required for safety in the changing Arctic - and to keep up with Russia.

In Church teaching, abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication. In the letter, Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies and said he had "met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision".
