Another terrorist attack. Another grim tally of the dead and wounded. Another killer full of hate, from a land that breeds such men. Like millions of migrants before him, the perpetrator crossed the border unchallenged. And like others, he struck our country without warning.

  • Key stakeholders in women's health praise a legal challenge against abortion restrictions in three states, blast a congressional panel targeting abortion providers and more.
  • "We are going to fight back state by state and law by law until every person has the right to pursue the life they want, including the right to decide to end a pregnancy." -- Raegan McDonald-Mosley, chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood, discussing three lawsuits filed by the organization and other advocacy groups against abortion restrictions in Missouri, North Carolina and Alaska. In the lawsuit, the advocacy groups cited the Supreme Court's continued affirmation of women's right to abortion care, as well as the high court's recent ruling in Whole Woman's Health vs. Hellerstedt, which struck down medically unnecessary abortion restrictions in Texas (Women's Health Policy Report, 12/1).
