Roe v. Wade: Still Fighting after All These Years When the Supreme Court legalized abortion 40 years ago today, it may have settled the law, but it started the most bitter of all the battles in America's ongoing culture war. Roe v. Wade pitted a woman's right to choose against the right of a fetus to live, an issue that divides America. Although controversy continues, that's still the law of the land, so much so that a new generation takes it for granted. Polls show a majority still supports legal abortion, but in some states it's harder and harder to get one. We look at that paradox and update the current strategies of both sides.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
