WASHINGTON (AP) — As the Supreme Court court weighs the future of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, a resurgent anti-abortion movement is looking to press its advantage in state-by-state battles while abortion-rights supporters prepare to play defense. Both sides seem to be operating on the assumption that a court reshaped by former President Donald Trump will either overturn or seriously weaken Roe. “We have a storm to weather,” said Elizabeth Nash, state policy analyst for the Guttmacher

Megan Scheffers waited until July to celebrate Christmas with her kids after the COVID-19 pandemic kept them apart last winter, but she says decorating candy log cabins just wasn't the same in the dead of summer. She was hoping to make up for missed traditions this year as two of her three children booked mid-December tickets to fly to Nova Scotia from the Netherlands, where they live with their father. But as the Omicron variant of the novel coronavirus threatens to upend the holiday season, Sc

Thirty-two years after a gunman motivated by a hatred of feminists opened fire on campus, killing 14 women and injuring others, the list of women killed by male violence in Quebec continues to grow. As Quebecers plan moments of silence and solemn ceremonies to mark the tragedy that occurred on Dec. 6, 1989 at Montreal's Polytechnique engineering school, advocates point out that the events of the last year show misogynistic violence is not a thing of the past. Quebec has experienced a spate of ho

Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of the country’s independence hero, Gen. Aung San, who was assassinated in 1947, less than six months before the country, then called Burma, became independent from Britain. Suu Kyi, 76, moved to New Delhi in 1960 when her mother was appointed ambassador to India and then spent most of her young adult life in the United States and England, where in 1972 she married Michael Aris, a British scholar of Himalayan studies at Oxford University.

In British Columbia, oil is once again moving through the Trans Mountain pipeline, which was shut down for weeks as a precaution after extreme weather set off disastrous floods and mudslides. The closure then triggered rules on gas rationing. Robin Gill explains why those measures are still in effect, and why gas prices ended up going down.

When Jamie Vardy was cut by his local youth team at 16, the rejection certainly stung. But it didn't deter him. Vardy went on to play for a semipro team while working to make ends meet — persistence that eventually paid off for the Leicester City striker. Vardy is now drawing on that experience in his new role as a co-owner of Rochester NY FC. Rochester, formerly known as the Rhinos, is among the teams that will compete next year in MLS Next Pro, a league that will bridge the pathway from Major
Suu Kyi is set to serve two years in detention at an undisclosed location, a sentence reduced from four years after a partial pardon from the country's military chief, state TV reported. President Win Myint was also initially sentenced to four years as the court delivered its first verdicts in numerous cases against Suu Kyi, who led the former civilian government in the role of state counsellor, and other leaders ousted by the military in a coup on Feb. 1. Myanmar has been in turmoil since the coup against Suu Kyi's democratically elected government led to widespread protests and raised international concern about the end of tentative political reforms following decades of military rule.
