UC applicants mostly Latino


For the first time, Chicano and
Latino applicants have made

applicants for the University of
California system, The Daily Cal-

fornia public universities saw a
high number of out-of-state and
international applicants dur-

account for about 64 percent of
the applicants.
The University of California,

U.S. transports French troops Looking back 40 years later:

SEGOU, Mali (AP) - Ameri-
can planes transported French
troops and equipment to Mali,
a U.S. military spokesman said
Tuesday, as Malian and French
forces pushed into the Islamist-
held north.
The town of Douentya had
been held by Islamist rebels for
four months, located 195 kilo-
meters (120 miles) northeast
of Mopti, the previous line-
of-control held by the Malian
military in Mali's narrow cen-
tral belt. The Islamist fighters
have controlled the vast desert
stretches of northern Mali,
with the weak government
clinging to the south, since a
military coup in the capital

in March last year unleashed
French and Malian troops
arrived in Douentza on Monday
to find that the Islamists had
retreated from it, said a resi-
dent, Sali Maiga. "The Malian
military and the French army
spent their first night and the
people are very happy," Maiga
said Tuesday.
A curfew went into effect at
8 p.m., and no gunfire or other
incidents were reported over-
night, he said.
In September, a convoy of
pickup trucks carrying beard-
ed men entered Douentza, and
in the months that followed
the Islamist extremists forced
women to wear veils and
enlisted children as young as
12 as soldiers in training.
French and Malian forces
also took the town of Diabaly,
which lies 195 kilometers (120
miles) west of Mopti, on Mon-
day after Islamist fighters who

had seized it a week earlier fled
amid French air strikes.
The presence of Malian sol-
diers in the two towns marks
tangible accomplishments for
the French-led mission, which
began on Jan. 11 after the reb-
els pushed south and threat-
ened the capital, Bamako. But
there are grave doubts that
the Malian army will be able
to hold newly recovered terri-
tory without foreign support.
The coup disrupted the chain
of command, and Malian sol-
diers last year repeatedly gave
up towns to the insurgents

40 years after U.S.
Supreme Court
ruling, abortion
still hot topic
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Abor-
tion opponents marked the 40th
anniversary of the Roe v. Wade
decision Tuesday with work-
shops, prayers and calls for
more limits on the rights estab-
lished by the Supreme Court in
the landmark ruling that still
defines one of the nation's most
intractable debates.
Many in the anti-abortion
movement looked to Kansas,
where Republican Gov. Sam
Brownback signed a series of
tough anti-abortion measures
during his first two years in
office. Other states with GOP
governors and Republican-con-
trolled legislatures have taken
similar steps.
"There's joy in what you're
doing and keep it up," Brown-
back urged hundreds of fellow
abortion opponents at a rally
outside the Kansas Statehouse.
"Keep marching. Keep moving."
Abortion-rights groups
observed a quieter anniver-
sary - a possible reflection of
the reality that it's far rarer for
lawmakers to expand access to
abortion. The National Orga-
nization for Women planned a
candlelight vigil at the Supreme
Court to commemorate the 1973
decision, which created a con-
stitutional right to abortions in
some circumstances and pre-
vented states from banning the
President Barack Obama
issued a statement reaffirm-
ing the decision's commitment
to "reproductive freedom" and
the principle that "government
should not intrude on our most
private family matters, and
women should be able to make
their own choices about their
bodies and their health care."
The ruling "should be hon-

ored," said Rep. Emily Perry, a
lawyer and Democrat from the
Kansas City suburb of Mission
who supports abortion rights.
"I wish the amount of energy
put into narrowing Roe v. Wade
would be put into school fund-
ing or our budget."
In Topeka, at least 1,000
people rallied with Brownback
and anti-abortion legislators.
The Kansas governor has called
on state lawmakers to create "a
culture of life." He is expected
to support whatever further
restrictions they approve.
Kansans for Life, the most
influential of the state's anti-
abortion groups, plans to ask
lawmakers to enact legislation
ensuring that the state doesn't
finance abortions even indirect-
ly, such as through tax breaks or
by allowing doctors-in-training
at the University of Kansas
Medical Center in Kansas City,
Kan., to perform them on the
center's time.
The group also wants to
strengthen a state law dictat-
ing what information must be
provided to abortion patients,
banning abortions because of
the fetus' gender and allowing
wrongful-death lawsuits when
a fetus dies because of an acci-
Comparable proposals are
gaining ground elsewhere, too.
Republican lawmakers in North
Dakota are pursuing a measure
to ban "sex selection" abor-
tions. Alabama's GOP legislative
majorities are looking to impose,
new health and safety regula-
tions for abortion providers.
And Republicans in Arkansas
want to ban abortions after the
20th week of pregnancy.
"I think more of America is
becoming more pro-life," said
Dr. Melissa Colbern, who start-
ed a crisis pregnancy center in
Topeka near the state Capitol
last year. "I think maybe the cul-
ture is changing." -
In Mississippi, where Repub-
lican Gov. Phil Bryant has said
repeatedly that he wants the

state to be abortion-free, advo-
cates on both sides of the issue
protested outside the state's only
abortion clinic in the capital of
Jackson. A large sign attached
to the building declared: "This
clinic stays open."
Nancy Keenan, president
of NARAL Pro Choice Amer-
ica, said most citizens are not
demanding their elected offi-
cials push for new abortion
"A lot of these anti-choice
politicians don't run on the
issue," Keenan said in an inter-
view Tuesday with The Associ-
ated Press. "They run on jobs, or
they run on the economy. And
then they show up in these state
legislatures, and they begin to
advance very anti-choice legis-
In the four decades since Roe
v. Wade, a series of court deci-
sions have narrowed its scope,
With each decision, lawmakers
in multiple states have followed
up by making abortions more
difficult to obtain or imposing
restrictions on providers.
According to the New York-
based Guttmacher Institute, a
reproductive-rights think tank,
135 laws aimed in some way at
restricting access to abortion
were enacted in 30 states -
most of them with Republican-
controlled legislatures - in 2011
and 2012. More such measures
already have been proposed in
several states this year.
In Wyoming, for example,
a pending bill would prohibit
abortions after a fetal heartbeat
is audible. A similar "heartbeat"
bill is pending in Mississippi,
and one was debated but later
sidetracked in Ohio last year.
In Texas, Republican Gov.
Rick Perry has told lawmakers
that he expects to make progress
during the 2013 session toward
his goal of making abortion "at
any stage a thing of the past."
Anti-abortion activists have
pledged to use every legal means
possible to make obtaining abor-
tions difficult, if not impossible.
