I am the Founder/Editor-at-Large for WNN - Women News Network, an award winning news site (Eli Lilly REACH Award for outstanding writing on TB, Every Human Has Rights Media Award by the Elders) that brings in-depth high quality journalistic news on global women to over 500 United Nations agencies and affiliates, international legal advocates, universities, international government officials, as well as the public at large. My work as a human rights journalist when I started as an intern producer with PBS pioneer Grace Cavalieri at WPFW-FM Pacifica radio 89.3FM in Washington, D.C. in the 1970s. I was also part of the formation of the public community television idea in the early days of public TV in Colorado (US) and helped as the only woman back then on the programming board for the very beginning of what is now Colorado Public Television Channel 12, Denver PBS, CPT12 (formerly KBDI TV). WNN - Women News Network, which is now working with over 18 journalists in field locations, was initially put together when I went to the United Nations to cover a story back in early 2006 on women and the ravages of Darfur. Once at the UN, I realized deeply the critical need for high quality 'old-fashioned' journalistic NY Times style, in-depth news coverage on global women.

The facts in this story are strong, but the purpose of the story is to 'build a case' for less population and less consumption on earth. Yes, this is an easy case to build (& one I personally agree with), but the story does have a clear goal to sway the public in the direction to agree with the conclusions presented.

This story by the BBC has been reported using an unbiased approach in reading the data revealing that more babies born in the past 10 years up to 2009 are suffering from opiate exposures and withdrawal. I would like to see much more detail on this story though. There are some important questions we all need to know: how does this affect U.S. society today with increasing rates of over the counter medicines addiction?.
