Cervical cancer is virtually always (according to cancer.org) caused by an HPV infection. Effective prevention as part of healthcare is how you combat STDs like that, so yes, it seems reasonable to expect that poor healthcare will lead to increased cervical cancer rates.

It's all a conspiracy. You're a troll on the Russian payroll, tasked to create chaos. I'm a monarchist pretending to be a confused bleeding-heart liberal to create chaos. Obama of course is a lizard pretending to be a muslim pretending to be an American, all the better to create chaos. Or maybe you're just nuts.

It seems to me this is a very honest comment from Obama, surprisingly unvetted for a US president. Why? Simply because he does a piss-poor job of calling anyone to action here. This is a lamentation, and it seems Obama genuinely has no idea how to deal with the problem he's describing. I feel I should note, in this context, that my username is derived from a Sam&Max quote, and does not reflect my political views. I sympathize with Obama's frustration, but am worried that he and his cohort (much like me) seem unable to do anything about it other than complain.

I've got my tinfoil hat on tight, so it's baseless speculation time: How do we know Apple didn't help them? They could have just done the court dance to keep up appearances, and help the Feds out on the sly. Win-win: Apple keeps their users happy and even gains extra points for standing up to the government, and they keep up good relations with the Feds.

So this would raise the cost of selling rhino horns by forcing buyers to have every piece checked, right? Not that I'm sure this is a great idea: If the horns are similar enough to pass for real horns in some meaningful sense, then won't it be easier to hide real horns among legal, fake horns?
