Texas Grants Nation's First Court-Sanctioned Abortion

Description
A Texas judge ruled Thursday that a woman can terminate her pregnancy because of a lethal abnormality in the fetus. It’s the first attempt in the country to use the courts to obtain an abortion since the end of Roe v Wade, and Thursday’s ruling is meant to shield the woman and her doctor from Texas’s strict anti-abortion measures. But state Attorney General Ken Paxton warned that it’s still possible his office might prosecute those involved. Then, over 17,000 people are dead in Gaza as the war in the Middle East continues. Meanwhile, a U.S. House Committee questioned university presidents over their responses to reported antisemitic campus protests. And in headlines: Hunter Biden was hit with nine federal counts of tax-related charges, the White House proposed a new policy to strip some patents from drug companies if their prices are too high, and a new space-themed McDonald’s spin-off opens Friday in Illinois.
