Protecting homes from burglars, abortion clinic closing, WGA?

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A Moss Bluff community continues to be plagued by home burglaries mostly happening during the day when no one is home.  See what residents are doing to take matters into their own hands.

*Women seeking an abortion are going to have a tougher time now.  Two more Texas abortion clinics are closing, including the one in Beaumont.  Find out what's behind these clinics shutting down and what state is proposing a very strict new law on abortion.

*I will take you inside the laboratory at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital this morning to find out what is making people sick in Southwest Louisiana this week.  In the What's Going Around segment, you'll hear about a different strain of flu on the increase, RSV in children and that lingering stomach bug.

*The efforts to undo Obamacare keep growing.  We'll tell you about the 50th bill passed by the House of Representatives aimed at repealing the mandated health insurance.

*The four day search for a 19-year-old University of New Orleans student has a tragic ending.  Find out how crews discovered the body of Hayley Howard inside a car.

*It's a warmer morning and Ben Terry says there is more to come.  Is rain in the mix today?  He will have the pinpoint forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
