Rabat- A 28-year old woman from Casablanca has reportedly given birth to five babies on Sunday after receiving treatments for infertility.Last weekend, a woman gave birth to five babies, two girls and three boys, after a successful caesarean section supervised by a medical team at the teaching hospital of Ibn Rochd, Casablanca.The woman first conceived the babies after five years of marriage. The Maghreb News Agency MAP quoted Dr. Naima Sammouh, a physician specializing in obstetrics and gynecology, as saying that this is ‘’an exceptional case of birth.’’ ’The woman has been taking fertility drugs as a treatment for infertility for five years,’’ Naima Sammouh explained.The doctor noted that although multiple pregnancy appears very risky, the duration of the pregnancy exceeded 34 weeks and proceeded in good conditions. The babies were born in good health.Naima Sammouh noted that multiple pregnancies ‘’have become much more common today than they were in the past, and It’s rare when multiple births go easily, like what happened today.’’Edited by Timothy Filla© Morocco World News.

WatchLoblaws 25 gift card terms in breadprice fixing offer not misleading judge

TORONTO — An Ontario judge has ruled that it’s too early to determine the enforceability of Loblaw Companies Ltd.’s policy that consumers who receive a $25 gift card from the company waive their right to that sum in possible future settlement money from a bread price-fixing scheme class-action lawsuit.Ontario Superior Court of Justice Edward M. Morgan dismissed a motion challenging the terms of Loblaw’s gift card plan.The company announced Monday that registrants must agree to a release saying they discharge Loblaw, its parent company George Weston and others from relief to the extent of $25 in connection with their involvement in an alleged bread price-fixing arrangement from Jan. 1, 2002 to March 1, 2015.Loblaw sets restrictions on $25 gift card offer for its role in bread price-fixing scheme‘Unacceptable’: Loblaw, George Weston face backlash over response to bread price-fixing schemeMorgan said in his ruling that he’s not in a position to know what, if any, an eventual settlement will entail, so it’s too soon to declare the release enforceable or not.Loblaw spokesman Kevin Groh says the “ruling puts to rest the nonsensical claim by class-action lawyers that our $25 Loblaw Card is misleading and confusing,” when the company is trying to put money in affected consumers’ hands quickly.The law firm which brought the action in front of the court, Strosberg Sasso Sutts LLP, says the ruling is a victory for consumers as Loblaw will not be able to deduct the gift card value from any future settlement pay out “unless it demonstrates that it is fair to consumers as part of an overall resolution of their price-fixing claims.” read more
