A newborn boy kidnapped from his mother's hospital room was found apparently unharmed Wednesday night, and police said the woman who took the baby had faked a pregnancy. Police Chief Benny Napoleon said a 20-year-old woman and a man in his mid-20s were arrested shortly after the baby, Moses Champion, was found at the home of the woman's mother. Police withheld the names of the suspects. The infant appeared to be in good shape, the chief said.

Pro-choice forces won two battles when the Indiana Senate defeated legislation to ban abortions in public hospitals and Michigan Gov. James J. Blanchard vetoed a bill today requiring minors to obtain permission for abortions.

The move followed a two-hour debate.

The first week after her heart transplant, Eileen Ryan was a wreck. Overcome by weakness, she couldn't stand or walk. Going home from the hospital, she had to rely on a wheelchair. That was in December 2008. By spring, Ryan was steadily regaining strength and getting around on her own with little difficulty."I began resuming a normal life," said the 64-year-old, who lives in Jacksonville, Fla. "It was phenomenal." Ryan credits cardiac rehabilitation with her recovery. For three months, three times a week, she practiced walking on treadmills and using weights under the watchful eyes of nurses and exercise physiologists at Mayo Clinic's Jacksonville campus.

They found not one, but many.
