I’m Jethro Wooddall.
I am in Orlando, Florida today for the Adoption Exchange Association conference (AEA).
Sign1News is here to speak with adoptions leaders and organizations from around the country about our adoption initiative “Chosen: A Family Connection.”
But first here are your top stories for today.
Rape victim activists are outraged in the UK.
New guidelines require victims to give police access to their phone and social media.
If they don’t, they risk their cases being unheard.
The rule is being rolled out in England and Wales.
Women’s rights groups say it treats rape victims like suspects and will scare people away from reporting crimes.
Police say they are committed to ensuring the privacy of rape victims when handling phone and social media records.
An advocacy group for sexual assault victims say they will be launching a court challenge to the rollout of the new guidelines.
