Abortion rights yacht sailsaround Moroccan port
By PAUL SCHEMMThe Associated Press
SMIR, Morocco —Moroccan police Thursdayescorted from its waters a smallyacht carrying women’s rightsactivists claiming to be able toperform abortions on board,after anti-abortion protesters jeered them on land.The Dutch group Women onWaves sailed the boat around thenorthern Moroccan harbor withbanners advertising an infor-mation hotline about abortion,which is illegal in most cases inthis North African country.A day earlier, the group hadsaid that a ship that can pro-vide “safe, legal, medical abor-tions” up until 6.5 weeks of pregnancy was on its way fromthe Netherlands. Medical pro-fessionals have traveled beforeto European nations to raiseawareness; the group’s foundersaid that abortions had been per-formed aboard ship in interna-tional waters off of Poland.The trip in the harbor of theMediterranean coastal town of Smir was the abortion rightsgroup’s first event in a Muslimcountry.
Abortion in Morocco is ille-gal, except in rare cases wherethe mother’s life is threatened andit is also illegal to give out infor-mation about it. Moroccan offi-cials had said the boat would notbe allowed in to the harbor andpolice sealed the port for whatthey called “military maneuvers,”denying journalists access.
But in the afternoon, activ-ists from Women on Wavessaid they already had stationeda sailboat in the harbor severaldays ago, fearing the port wouldbe shut down. That boat tookoff around the harbor, about anhour after the group’s founderapproached crowds of protesterson the ground, trying to hand outfliers on abortion in Arabic andFrench to crowds of protesters.Police later boarded theDutch-flagged yacht and escort-ed it out of the marina. No onewas charged.“We launched a hotline thatgives information to womenhere in Morocco, because theship can never solve the prob-lem here for everyone,” saidRebecca Gomperts, the orga-nization’s founder. The hotlinecontains a recorded messageexplaining which easily avail-able medication in Morocco canbe used to perform an abortion.Some 200 protesters in Smirtargeted the activists outsidethe sealed gates of the marina.The protesters, some in con-servative Muslim robes andheadscarves, carried pictures of bloody embryos and shouted“Terrorist!” and “Assassin!” atGomperts.“We are here because wecannot accept these values, thevalues of massacre,” said pro-tester Abdessamad Zilali, 23. “Itis not part of our tradition to killthe unborn.”Police pushed back shout-ing protesters who tried to getcloser to Gomperts, and said shewas escorted away for her ownprotection.The Women on Waves boatwas invited to Morocco by alocal women’s rights organiza-tion seeking the legalization of abortion in this North Africankingdom.Founded in 1999, Womenon Waves aims to spread infor-mation about safe medical abor-tions induced by medication andhas previously angered authori-ties in conservative Catholiccountries.The group traveled to Irelandin 2001, Poland in 2003 andSpain, and was banned fromentering Portugal’s waters in2004.

Community can ‘dig deep for Worm’
BY NANCY SPENCERnspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — They say itonly takes seconds to changesomeone’s life forever. Thefamilies of Scott and Carrie(Rostorfer) German wouldprobably agree.Scott, better known as“Worm” to his friends, wasexcited about a weekend guys’trip to Michigan InternationalSpeedway on Aug. 16. Whathappened as the group pulledinto their camping site wouldset the course of the youngcouple’s and their family’slives for months to come.German lost his footingwhile riding in the group’s RVand fell to the ground, hittinghis head. He was rushed to thehospital with a severe braininjury and his wife of fouryears said it was “the worstday of her life.”“I got the call that my hus-band was being life-flightedto a hospital because he felland hit his head. At that point,that’s literally all I knew,”Carrie German said. “Theythought he was going to ahospital in Jackson, Mich., sowe started up State Route 127.Then we got a call from anofficer on the scene of Scott’sfall that he was being flownto The University of ToledoHospital, which meant wewere going the wrong way.After correcting our route andarriving at the hospital, wefound out he had actually beenflown to The Toledo Hospital,another 15 minutes away.”With Scott’s friends intow, the worried wife againchanged her route.“Scott’s friends had left thespeedway and were in the RVfollowing me,” she said.When they arrived at thecorrect hospital, the news wasnot good.“A few of us were first ush-ered into a private consulta-tion room where we were toldthat Scott was in the operatingroom and that he was verycritical,” Carrie said. “Wewere then all taken to another,larger waiting area where wecould all be together. The sur-geon came out shortly andsaid he had finished and he’dhad to remove a large por-tion of Scott’s skull to let thebrain swell. He said Scott hadslipped into a coma after sur-gery and that he was a ‘very,very sick boy’ and ‘if thereare any other family members,you should call them in’.”The doctor explained thenext 72 hours would deter-mine if Scott would live.“We celebrated and thankedGod for each hour that helived to get to that 72-hourtimeline,” Carrie said. “Hisfriends never left him. Wetold them Scott would wantthem to go to the race but theywouldn’t hear of it. They allstayed at the hospital with ourfamilies.”The RV became a fixturein the hospital parking lot andthe guys visited with the fami-lies of their friend, played cornhole and provided meals for thecouple’s support system, cook-ing the food they had plannedto eat over the weekend.Scott made some improve-ments. Even after all the nextfew surgeries, including a sec-ond brain surgery for anotherbleed on the brain, Scott waswell enough to be transportedby ambulance back to Lima.No one knows when ithappened or why it happenedbut somehow his feeding tubehad dislodged from inside hisstomach and everything thatwas being run through thistube, his feeding materials aswell as meds, were now beingdeposited into his tissues inhis belly cavity. Less than 24hours after getting to Lima,Scott was once again fightingfor his life.“The mess in his belly hadbecome septic and Scott waswithin hours of death again,”Carrie said. “Emergency sur-gery that opened Scott up andpulled his insides out to washthem off was performed andScott was then placed in acoma. I felt the progress Scotthad made was all for nothing.We were right back where westarted from that first night.”Scott did not get better;five days later, a second sur-gery to wash his insides off was done. Then, he developedblood clots in his arms andlegs. Because of his recentbrain surgeries, they couldn’tgive the normal doses of bloodthinner and had to come upwith a way to treat them.“It just seemed like we’dtake a step or two forwardand three backward,” his wifesaid. “But even in his inducedcoma, Scott fought. When hecame out of this one, he wasmoving his arms and legs evenbetter than before.”Before long, he was movedto the step-down unit and a bedcame open at the Dodd RehabCenter in Columbus and nowhe’s progressing every day.“The support from the com-munity and friends and familyand all of our co-workers hasbeen just overwhelming and Icouldn’t begin to thank eachand every one individually forfear I’d miss someone,” Carriesaid. “I just want everyone toknow how much I appreciateeverything.”Scott is the youngest sonof Chuck and Donna Germanof Delphos. Scott has beena volunteer firefighter for 8years, and is a member of it’s Water Rescue Team andLife Flight Team. He is anArmy veteran, having servedhis country in Iraq. He isa licensed journeyman pipe-fitter employed through theLima Plumbers and PipefittersUnion. Carrie is the oldestdaughter of Dan and MargieRostorfer. She is employedat D & D Ingredients of Landeck.The community can supportScott and Carrie by attending“Scottoberfest: Diggin’ Deepfor Worm” Saturday at theDelphos Recreation Center.A corn hole tournamentwill begin at 1 p.m. for $30.Registration will be held onthat day.

Teachers, bosses chargedin NJ school sex scandal
By GEOFF MULVIHILLThe Associated Press
CAMDEN, N.J. Six months ago, a studentcame to Triton High SchoolPrincipal Catherine DePaulwith a disturbing story: Shebelieved another student wasinvolved in a sexual rela-tionship with a teacher atthe school, and she’d seenexplicit text messages the twohad exchanged.At that moment, prosecu-tors say, a cover-up was putin motion that ultimatelyunraveled Thursday whenDePaul, an assistant princi-pal and three teachers werecharged with offenses rang-ing from child endangermentto sexual assault and officialmisconduct.Each of the five adultshas been suspended from theschool in the Philadelphiasuburb of Runnemede, andeach could face at least fiveyears in prison if convicted.The teachers — all menin their late 20s or early 30s— are accused of striking uprelationships with female stu-dents during the 2011-2012school year.Sexual relationshipsbetween teachers and studentsare not unheard of. CamdenCounty prosecutor WarrenFaulk noted that the mediaseems particularly fixated onthe female teacher-male stu-dent cases that are reportedaround the country each year.But what distinguished theallegations at Triton High wasthe inaction by administra-tors who ignored policies andsafeguards that were in placeand instead allowed a culture“where teachers thought theycould get away with improperrelationships with their stu-dents,” according to Faulk.“These charges constituteindividual personal, moral,legal and ethical failure,”Faulk said at a news confer-ence Thursday.Faulk said rape chargescould not be filed becausethe sex acts were consensualand the girls were 17 or 18at the time — old enough toconsent under state law.According to court docu-ments, math teacher DanMichielli, 27, of Blackwood,had intercourse with a stu-dent multiple times duringthe school year. He is chargedwith official misconduct, sex-ual assault, endangering thewelfare of a child and crimi-nal sexual conduct.Gym teacher and boys’soccer coach Nick Martinelli,28, of Cherry Hill, is chargedwith official misconductinvolving an 18-year-old.Prosecutors say he touchedand kissed the girl when shewas a student and had inter-course with her after shegraduated in June.Math teacher and girls’track coach Jeff Logandro,32, of Blackwood, is chargedwith official misconduct,criminal sexual contact andendangering the welfare of a child. A court filing sayshe inappropriately touched afemale student.Authorities say a student,not one of the alleged vic-tims, told a substitute teacherin April that teachers were“hooking up” with students.Authorities say the substituteteacher then told DePaul.Prosecutors say the princi-pal met with the student, whotold her she’d been to one of the teacher’s homes with agirl who was involved withhim and had seen the explicittext messages. Authorities sayDePaul asked her to write anaccount of what she had heardand that Assistant PrincipalJernee Kollock stayed withthe student to help her writethe statement, even helpingher with her grammar — butalso making it seem less seri-ous.Around the same time,Faulk said, DePaul learnedone of the teachers had drivenan alleged victim and anoth-er student to Ocean City inviolation of district policy.But, he said, the teacher wasmerely reprimanded.Faulk said neither admin-istrator contacted authorities.Both were charged with offi-cial misconduct.Faulk said DePaul latersaid she wished she had beenmore concerned for the stu-dents than the teachers.The defendants eithercould not be reached or didnot return messages leftThursday by The AssociatedPress. All five are due incourt Oct. 11.The teachers were sus-pended by the Black HorseRegional School District lastmonth; the administratorswere suspended Thursday.Superintendent John Goldensaid in a statement that thedistrict was cooperating withauthorities, notifying familiesof students of the allegationsand offering counseling.“In addition, we have initi-ated a comprehensive reviewof our existing policies, pro-tocols and training and edu-cation materials to preventthis from happening again atthis or any district school,”the statement said.

WASHINGTON —More Americans than everare taking generic drugs, asblockbuster medicines likePlavix and Lipitor becomeavailable in low-cost ver-sions. But the government’srevelation this week thatit mistakenly approved adefective generic antide-pressant could stoke long-time concerns about thequality of knockoff drugs.The Food and DrugAdministration onWednesday asked TevaPharmaceuticals to with-draw its drug BudeprionXL 300 after testingshowed the drug did notproperly release its keyingredient. The drug is sup-posed to be equivalent toGlaxoSmithKline’s popularantidepressant WellbutrinXL, which is prescribed totreat depression, anxietyand symptoms of nicotinewithdrawal.The announcementmarked an about-face forregulators, who said in2008 that the two drugswere essentially the same,despite hundreds of com-plaints from patients whosaid they experienced sideeffects such as headaches,anxiety and insomnia afterswitching to the genericdrug. The FDA has with-drawn generic drugs before,but this appears to be thefirst case driven by con-sumer complaints, whichcontinued to pile up afterthe FDA said the drug wasworking correctly.“The lesson is thateveryone — from phar-macists to physicians tothe FDA — needs to takethese reports seriously,”said Dr. Tod Cooperman of ConsumerLab, a privately-held company that indepen-dently tests drugs and nutri-tion products. Coopermanadded that the vast majoritygeneric drugs work appro-priately but that, “consum-ers will be the first to knowwhen there is a problem.”ConsumerLab first drewattention to the issue withBudeprion XL in 2007.The company published ananalysis of the two drugs,indicating Budeprion XLreleased its active ingredi-ent at a much faster ratethan Wellbutrin. The FDAcompleted its own studyin August that confirmedthose findings.But FDA officials saidThursday it would havebeen irresponsible to makescientific decisions basedon patient reports, whichcan be influenced by ahost of individual factors,including their disease.“When these reportscome in we don’t knowexactly what is going onwith the patient,” saidDavid Read, regulatorycounsel for the FDA’soffice of generic drugs. “Isit a failure of the drug oris it a coincidence they areexperiencing some sort of problem? It’s something todiscuss between them andtheir physician.”Read pointed out thatin the last five years theFDA has only had to cor-rect itself on the equiva-lence of three drugs. Twocases involved drugs fromDr. Reddy’s Laboratories:an antidepressant and anantifungal medication. Thethird case involved an anti-seizure drug from Upshur-Smith Laboratories.The FDA approved thefirst generic versions of Wellbutrin XL in 2006,including Budeprion.The generic drug is madeby U.S.-based ImpaxLaboratories Inc. andsold by Israel-based TevaPharmaceutical IndustriesLtd.Teva said Wednesdaythat it halted shipmentsof the drug last Thursdayafter being contacted by theFDA. The company pointedout that there is no safetyissue with the pill.The GenericPharmaceuticalAssociation, a trade groupfor generic drugmakers,moved quickly to defendthe track record of both theFDA and its companies.“There are approximate-ly 10,000 FDA-approvedinterchangeable genericsin the U.S.,” said RalphNeas, the group’s CEO andpresident. “The recall by asingle manufacturer of onestrength of a generic drugshould in no way cast doubton the impeccable reputa-tion of the generic industryor the FDA.”The generic pharma-ceutical industry has neverbeen more successful. Withprices 50 to 70 percentbelow the original product,generic drugs are favoredby government and privateinsurers, pharmacies andpatients. Last year, genericdrugs made up 80 percentof the 4 billion prescrip-tions written in the U.S.,an all-time high driven by awave of patent expirations.In the last year some of the best-selling drugs evermade have gone generic,including the high choles-terol pill Lipitor and theblood thinner Plavix.And complaints aboutgeneric drugs are rare,although they have croppedup before. The FDA’sstance has been that genericdrugs are chemically andmedically equivalent tothe original products. Theagency has hammered homethat message in pamphletsand posters with sloganslike “Generic Drugs Makethe Grade,” and “GenericDrugs Measure Up.”
