The Baby Industry In Spain this week, the world's oldest new mother gave birth to twin babies at the age of 67, as the age of possible motherhood rises higher and higher. The fastest growing age group for motherhood is no longer 20-year olds but women in their 40's, all due to advancing fertility treatments. But the technology is developing faster than the answers to troubling questions about medicine, ethics and society as a whole. What does the high-tech fertility industry mean for a woman's health and her baby's future? What are the social and ethical consequences of a new kind of business? We talk to doctors, ethicists, an egg donor and a mother of children born from the eggs of another.
Healthcare debate now shifts to the Senate Both parties are celebrating yesterday's House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. House Republicans are cheering because they were able to pass it. Democrats are happy because they think it's so bad. We look at the details… and the politics.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Will the GOP weather the storm with Trump or jump ship? Breitbart news claims that the GOP "establishment" has it's knives out" for President Trump, but Republicans in Congress are mostly supportive… at least in public. We look at whether that's likely to last.
Concern deepens amid Trump's controversies President Trump delivered today's commencement speech to the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. As he praised the accomplishments of the graduates, he listed some of his own… and made reference to reports that he leaked intelligence to the Russians and tried to shut down an FBI Investigation into his associates.
