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.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
