Senate Rejects Democrats' Bill to Codify Abortion Rights Before & After Fetal Viability
The Senate offered another bipartisan rejection of Democrats’ Women’s Health Protection Act on Wednesday, which failed to clear a procedural hurdle on a 49-51 vote ― short of the 60 votes needed for debate to continue.
The Act would create a federal statutory right to abortion that would allow people to undergo abortions without having to comply with nearly all existing state-level abortion restrictions.
How do you feel about the Senate’s vote?
Inflation Remained Near 40-Year High in April at 8.3%
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Wednesday that the all items consumer price index (CPI) rose by 8.3% over the last 12 months through April. Inflation remained near a four-decade high and is more than four times the Federal Reserve’s target rate of 2%.
April marks the fifth consecutive month with inflation running at 7% or higher during the preceding 12-month period.
Are you feeling the financial pressure of inflation?
Baby Formula Shortage Across the U.S. Sends Parents Scrambling
A shortage in baby formula has impacted families across the country, leaving parents scrambling to feed their children. The national out-of-stock rate for baby formula was 43% this week, as found by Datasembly.
