We've been here before, with the fate of abortion rights throughout the United States in doubt and awaiting a decision by the Supreme Court. Nearly 30 years ago, the court came within a vote of throwing out the 1973 Roe v.

No longer a distant prospect, both sides of the ever-contentious abortion debate are actively preparing for life after Roe v. Wade. What will happen if the Supreme Court uses its pending case from Mississippi to und
A mostly white jury is nearly set for the trial of a suburban Minneapolis police officer charged in Daunte Wright's shooting death, as only two alternates remain to be chosen before opening statements next week. Kim Potter, 49, is charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter in the April 11 shooting of Wright, a 20-year-old Black motorist, following a traffic stop in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. Potter, who is white, has said she meant to use her Taser on Wright after he pulled away from officers while they were trying to arrest him, but that she drew her handgun by mistake. Her body camera recorded the shooting.

U.S. employers likely stepped up hiring in November as they scrambled to meet strong demand for goods and services, giving the economy a strong boost as another challenging year draws to a close, though worker shortages remained a constraint. The Labor Department's closely watched employment report on Friday is expected to show a rapidly tightening jobs market, with the unemployment rate seen falling to a 20-month low of 4.5% and wages increasing further.
