SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -
South Korea said yesterday it

U.S. and China called for better

The talks could prove signifi-

said Lee Jong-joo, a spokeswoman
for South Korea's Unification Min-
istry, which is in charge of inter-
Korean affairs.
North Korea launched artil-
lery at a South Korean island in
November in an attack that killed
four people. It denies, however,
attacking the navy ship that sank
in March, killing 46 sailors.
Inter-Korean relations have
been complicated by a power
transition under way in the
North, where leader Kim Jong
Il is believed to be grooming his
youngest son Kim Jong Un to
succeed him. Some analysts say
the ship sinking and the artillery
attack were carried out to display

North Korea's state news agen-
cy was silent on the proposed

South Korea had rejected earli-

Korea has also called for an apol-

Philadelphia abortion murder
case incites national debate

Activists decry
alleged offenses of
abortion clinic doctor
NEW YORK (AP) - The allega-
tions of murder at a Philadelphia
abortion clinic add fuel to already
heated national debate over late-
term abortions and oversight of
providers. One side wants tougher
restrictions; the other says women
would be safer if they had more
Almost in unison, abortion-rights
and anti-abortion activists decried
the alleged offenses of Dr. Kermit
Gosnell, who was arraigned yes-
terday on eight counts of murder
in the deaths of seven babies and
one patient. He allegedly provided
illegal late-term abortions for up to
$3,000 while avoiding a crackdown
despite numerous complaints and
"This provider clearly operates
outside acceptable quality care

standards and is a total outlier," said
National Abortion Federation presi-
dent Vicki Saporta. "The majority
of providers offer very high quality
The problem with the Gosnell
case, Saporta said, is that state and
local authorities apparently didn't
enforce regulations that were on the
books. She noted that Gosnell had
been rejected for membership in her
federation, which represents about
400 providers accounting for about
half the nation's 1.2 million annual
The federation has a self-policing
policy, conducting periodic site vis-
its to ensure that members comply
with its guidelines.
Anti-abortion activists say self-
policing, as well as existing regula-
tions in many states, are insufficient.
They have been pushing for years
for tighter oversightof abortion pro-
viders, and the Gosnell case is likely
to intensify those efforts.
Yesterday, for example, a legisla-
tive committee in Virginia endorsed

a bill that would subject abortion
clinics - which are now regulated
like doctors' offices - to the same
standards as outpatient surgical
"It's hard to tell the extent of
egregious offenders because the
abortion industry is almost com-
pletely unregulated," said Dr. Donna
Harrison of Eau Claire, Mich., pres-
ident of the American Association
of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gyne-
"If a doctor in a hospital did a hys-
terectomy and had a patient with a
complication, he would have to go
back and explain why to his col-
leagues," Harrison said. "With abor-
tion, the doctor has nobody to face
- they basically just slide through
the accountability process with
nobody to hold their feet to the fire."
In general, abortion-rights activ-
ists have opposed the state-level
efforts to regulate abortion clinics
more tightly, depictingthese bills as
backdoor attempts to shut down the
clinics altogether.

Chicago mayor
spearheads efforts
to strengthen U.S.-
China relationship
CHICAGO (AP) - Mayor Rich-
ard Daley's long effort to build ties
with the world's second-largest
economy seemed to pay off yes-
terday as Chinese President Hu
Jintao arrived for his first visit
to Chicago, his only stop outside
Washington duringthis trip.
Hu was expected to focus on
economic ties between China and
Chicago during his whirlwind
overnight visit to the city. Experts
said the attention from China has
been the envy of other U.S. cities
and could mark a gigantic - and
profitable - step forward for both
parties, despite the sometimes
rocky U.S.-China relationship.
. "Our long range goal is to make
Chicago the most China-friendly
cityin the U.S.," Daleysaid duringa
dinner last night attended by Hu, as
well as Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, top
city officials and business leaders.
Many have credited Daley's
efforts so far. The mayor has trav-
eled to China four times since
2004, touting Chicago as a global
transportation hub with large

manufacturing and industrial sec-
tors friendly to Chinese business.
"Chicago deserves some kudos.
It's clear that he's (Daley) cultivat-
ed the China relationship and he's
learned how to do that very well,"
said Kenneth Lieberthal, direc-
tor of the John L. Thornton China
Center at the Brookings Insti-
tution. "Mayors and governors
around the country, regardless of
their politics, see China as a source
of potential capital, markets and
jobs. So you better be ones look-
ing to have the president of China
come here."
Hu, speaking to last night's
dinner through a translator, also
praised the city's efforts to build
relationships through language
and business.
"Despite the great distance
between Chicago and China, our
hearts are linked together by
friendship,"he said. He earlier con-
gratulated Daley on his 22 years in
office, calling him "the most senior
mayor in America."
The retiring Democratic mayor
has largely stayed away from poli-
tics in developing a relationship
with China. He went to Shang-
hai last year to headline "Chicago
Days" at the 2010 World Expo. In
2008, he went to the Beijing Olym-
pics to look for lessons for Chica-
go's 2016 Summer Olympics bid.

He has avoided criticizing China
for human rights issues and stayed
away from U.S. manufacturers'
claims that China undervalues
its currency to make its exports
cheaper than U.S. products, con-
tributing to high unemployment
In 2006, Daley pushed for the
development of the Confucius
Institute in Chicago, a language
and cultural center that started
as a small parent-driven Chinese
language program. It's now one of
the largest institutes of its kind in
North America; about 12,000 Chi-
cago public school students take
Chinese and the institute offers
community classes and interna-
tional exchanges for teachers.
While the institute doesn't have
direct ties to business, leaders in
Chicago's Chinatown say it helps
forge a connection.
"It creates a whole generation of
younger students and future lead-
ers to understand Chinese culture
and language. It will help the busi-
ness transaction," said Tony Shu,
president of the Chinatown Cham-
ber of Commerce. "If you know
the language, you'll find it so much
Hu was expected to visit the
institute on Friday, as well as a
Chinese business expo in the sub-
