Would overturning abortion rights turn back clock to 1973?

FILE – This Friday, May 17, 2019 file photo shows an examination/procedure room at the Jackson Women’s Health Organization in Jackson, Miss. The facility is the state’s only abortion clinic. Technology and science have given women unprecedented options and control over fertility since 1973. Back then, single women had only recently gained nationwide access to birth control, thanks to a 1972 Supreme Court ruling, said Dr. Sarah Prager, who directs the University of Washington School of Medicine’s family planning fellowship.

Japan trade a problem for Trump, but not as bad as China

FILE – In this May 13, 2019, file photo, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue donning an apron prepares to barbecue U.S. beef in Tokyo. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates exports of U.S. beef and beef product could jump by up to $200 million a year, though they do face stiff competition from Australia and China.
