For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.

From the day Roe v. Wade was decided, some have seen the constitutional right to an abortion as an inferred right rather than a guaranteed one. That distinction has become a threat to the law’s survival. Guests: Sabrina Tavernise, a national correspondent for The New York Times, spoke with Adam Liptak, who covers the Supreme Court for The Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: Because the court led by Chief Justice John Roberts tends toward incrementalism, it is more likely to hear cases that chip away at abortion rights than to overturn Roe v. Wade directly.But after nearly five decades, the anti-abortion movement is closer than it has ever been to dismantling Roe.
Alabama has adopted a law that would criminalize nearly all abortions and make the penalty for providing one up to 99 years in prison. The man who wrote the law knew it was unconstitutional — and did it anyway. We asked him why.

Background reading:President Trump’s tariffs, initially seen as a cudgel to break down trade barriers, increasingly look like more permanent measures intended to shelter American industry.Some Republicans are balking at the president’s trade policy as the Trump administration considers another bailout for farmers.
Years of multinational efforts have failed to get China to play by the international rules of trade. Now, President Trump has launched an all-out trade war in which the United States is confronting China on its own. Guests: Natalie Kitroeff, a business reporter for The New York Times, spoke with Peter S. Goodman, an economics correspondent. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading:The intensifying trade war between the United States and China, the two largest economies on earth, has become the biggest threat to the global economy.Both countries seem to be hardening their positions in ways that will be difficult to resolve with the mutual face-saving that typically facilitates trade deals.
When we last spoke with Representative Rashida Tlaib, she had just been sworn in — and had fulfilled the fears of Democratic leaders by calling for the impeachment of President Trump. In the months since, she’s been challenging her party on a different front, attracting controversy for her criticisms of Israel, which some have characterized as anti-Semitic.Ms. Tlaib has repeatedly denied that there’s any anti-Semitism behind what she’s said. But she hasn’t spoken at length about the controversy or explained where she’s coming from. So a few weeks ago, we traveled back to visit her at her congressional office in Detroit.Guests: Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan; and Andy Mills and Jessica Cheung, producers for “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. This episode contains explicit language.Background reading:Remarks by Ms. Tlaib about the Palestinian role in the founding of Israel further inflamed a feud over the Jewish state, anti-Semitism and the first two Muslim women in the House.This episode of “The Daily” includes excerpts from an interview with Ms. Tlaib on “Skullduggery,” a podcast from Yahoo News. Listen to the full interview here.
Iran is warning that it may resume production on its nuclear program, reviving a crisis that had been contained by the signing of the Iran nuclear deal four years ago. One man within the United States government may have intentionally brought us to this point. Guest: Mark Landler, who covers the White House for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.Background reading: After President Hassan Rouhani of Iran declared that he would begin to walk away from the terms of the nuclear deal, the Trump administration responded with a new round of sanctions.The lack of ideological coherence in President Trump’s approach to foreign intervention has played to the advantage of more hawkish advisers.

as a former Mormon , I think you should do a part two asking the church , how they let this slide, they are strong into following the laws of the land , and the concept of restitution , the church leaders should of made him apologize to his victim, and turn himself into the authorities, the Church dropped the ball..

this happened to me at age 17 by my friends adult cousin. scared me to death, had no clue who was in the dark trying to touch me. My friend did not believe me, ended our friendship. It makes me sick to think that he could now be doing the same to a daughter or her friends.

If two doses of MMR (the vaccination standard) is 97% effective in preventing measles, why are people still that afraid to come in contact with those who might have measles? There shouldn’t be that huge of a racist or ethnicity-targeted reaction.

It's obvious he's trying to hide something and what's done in the dark will come to the light. You don't have to be a business scholar to see how being the president and running a billion dollar empire could be a conflict of interest
