There's making a point, and there's being creepy. It appears as if one North Dakota anti-abortion group is skewing a bit on the creepy side with their latest move.

Some people go to the State Fair to sample various fried goodies and perhaps ride the Ferris Wheel. The Minot Right to Life group however? They went to hand out little squishy fetus dolls to children.

Fetus Dolls

Even fellow pro-lifers are giving this the Scooby-Doo "wth" look. Rob Port, editor of conservative blog Say Anything, noticed his 5 year old daughter with the toy and wasn't too pleased.

He later commented on his blog, "Whatever group is out there trying to promote the pro-life message by handing out squish alien babies, stop. You're doing more harm than good."

While that statement pretty much sums it up, the best line from Mr. Port was this - "stop being a bunch of weirdos."

It's the question everyone surely asks whenever they see Huma Abedin standing beside husband Anthony Weiner during yet another press conference....

Why does she stay with him?

Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner

Her reason is actually quite "normal" given the circumstances. She stays for the sake of their 19 month old son, Jordan. 

Rory Tahari, a longtime friend of the couple, says that, "She never wanted Jordan to say to her, "Why didn't you do everything you could to help Dad?""

Unless you are the President of the United States, birth certificates don't usually equate to headline news. Well, that is unless you are the newest member of the Royal Family.

Check out Prince George's birth certificate below!

Prince George Birth Certificate

Pretty standard although one has to imagine that Prince William wishes the name boxes were just a little bit bigger. My name is not even close to that long and I start to panic when getting to the last few letters because I misjudged the space. 

Of course when your occupation is "Prince of the United Kingdom" you might be used to it.

Most everyone thinks their marriage proposal story is cute. Even if it was in the bathroom while in boxers, there still is an adorable factor to it.

Well prepare to feel jilted, all thanks to Brock Newell. 

Perhaps taking a page from this guy's marriage proposal manual, Newell put together a movie trailer retelling the story of his and girlfriend Kristen's relationship. Of course afterwards he took to one knee and popped the question, right there in the theater. Awwwww.

A Long Island couple was visited by six men from a joint terrorism task force after Googling pressure cookers and backpacks, according to a new report.

How'd the government know what they were Googling - and so fast?

The Suffolk County Police Department released a statement:

"Intelligence Detectives received a tip from a Bay Shore based computer company regarding suspicious computer searches conducted by a recently released employee."

"The computer searches took place on this employee’s workplace computer. On that computer, the employee searched the terms 'pressure cooker bombs' and 'backpacks.'"

The Russian Parliament's support for a new law banning "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors" is sparking international outcry.

Implemented after President Vladimir Putin signed it into law, it bars the public discussion of gay rights and relationships anywhere children might hear it.

Russia's anti-gay law has quickly been condemned by domestic and international rights groups as highly discriminatory, and has prompted retaliation.

From calls for a boycott of the Olympics to gay bars in Los Angeles planning "vodka-dumping" protests, reaction has been as swift as it is negative.

Human Rights Watch described the anti-gay propaganda law as "a profoundly discriminatory, dangerous bill that is bound to worsen homophobia in Russia."

Its implications may be wide-ranging.

The winning numbers for the July 31: 8, 24, 39, 49, 59 and the Powerball number 5.

Though there were no Powerball jackpot winners, two players, in Oklahoma and Oregon respectively, won $2 million each for the Match 5 Power Play.

The Power Play option, which increases the prize, costs an additional $1 to play.

Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro was sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison today, one week after he pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty.

The court in Cuyahoga County (Oh.) is seizing the property of the criminal and imposing a fine of $100,000 on him, in addition to his massive sentence.

"There is no place in this city, there is no place in this country, there is no place in this world for those who enslave others," Judge Michael Russo told him.

"A person can only die in prison once," Russo added of the mammoth sentence, which he said was "commensurate with the harm" done by Ariel Castro.

Russo, noting how Castro treated victims, said consecutive sentences rendered in his case must be "imposed" to protect the public and "to punish you."

"You don't deserve to be out in our community. You're too dangerous."
