In order for his title to live on in future generations, the 69-year-old has no choice but to pass it to a distant relative abroad, someone he has not even met."It's a sadness in life that my wife and I never had a son," said the viscount, who lives with his wife in the countryside west of London. "But I suppose I would rather someone inherit it than have it dying out.""Downton Abbey" may be set in the early 20th century and its characters may be fictional, but the effects of a centuries-old rule that puts boys before girls are very real to Torrington and hundreds of hereditary peers in modern Britain. It's still a man's world when it comes to inheritance among Britain's peerage, an arc nt "flags" in the law -- "small changes that raise questions about abortion."He said some people who support abortion rights oppose taxpayer funding of abortions or parental notification of minors' abortions. Others, he said, support the reinstatement of the so-called Mexico City policy, which bans American aid from funding abortions. Obama waived the order soon after taking office in 2009.Marjorie Dannenfelser, the group's president, said it plans to target Senate seats in 2014 held by Democrats Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, both of whom support abortion rights.
