Late-term abortions are now illegal in Wisconsin. State governor Scott Walker signed a bill yesterday that bans all non-emergency abortions after 20 weeks, the stage when some experts say fetuses begin to feel pain. Rape and incest are exceptions to the new law. This legislation makes performing a late-term abortion a felony, carrying a punishment of up to three and a half years in prison and up to $10,000, reports Politico. Still allowable after 20 weeks are emergency abortions in situations where the mother may die or incur severe injuries. Wisconsin lawmakers approved this action earlier this month. Discuss

Today in Cairo, Egypt, at least five people died in a clash between Egyptian security forces and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Associated Press reports that this fight represents the deadliest violence at Islamist protests in a while. More than 500 Brotherhood supporters marched in the Cairo’s Giza neighborhood following the end of Ramadan and the start of Eid al-Fitr, a major Muslim holiday. Fights erupted between marchers and local residents and police, escalating quickly to deadly gunfire. Discuss

Presidential candidate Marco Rubio is selling polo shirts on his campaign website—and he’s calling them “Marco Polos.” Get it? Because nothing says “vote for me to be the future leader of your country” like a good, punny dad joke. The polos are $45 and feature the name “Marco” below an outline of the U.S. Obviously, they come in your choice of red, white or blue. Discuss

The Oklahoma Supreme Court today ordered the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the state’s capitol, according to KOCO in Oklahoma City. The Court ruled that the monument, as a religious symbol, “violates the state's constitutional ban on using public property to benefit a religion.” The 7-2 ruling overturns a previous decision by a lower court judge. The state’s attorney general, Scott Pruitt, said that the monument is historic, and that it parallels a similar monument in Texas, which the U.S. Supreme Court deemed constitutional. The Oklahoma justices said, however, that the Oklahoma monument violates their state constitution, not the U.S. Constitution. In a statement, Pruitt suggested that he will seek repeal. Discuss

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision to allow nine abortion clinics in Texas to remain open, according to The New York Times. A recent law in the state effectively closed these clinics. The case in question revolves around two parts of a Texas law that establish requirements on abortion clinics: 1) abortion clinics must meet the standards of “ambulatory surgical centers,” and 2) doctors performing abortions must have "admitting privileges" at a local hospital. The Court voted 5 to 4—with Chief Justice John Roberts and justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. voting against—to stay the order while justices consider whether or not to hear an appeal to the state law. And the Court’s stay of the Texas restrictions strongly indicates that it will consider abortion rights during its next term. Discuss
