  • 1380 - SCOTUS v. Roe v. Wade

    The future of Roe v. Wade is uncertain.

    The case legalized a woman's right to an abortion in 1973, and this week the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that considers the legality of a Mississippi state law banning abortion 15 weeks after conception.

    How likely is an overruling of Roe v. Wade?And what did this week's hearings tell us about the Justices' stances on abortion?

  • 1379 - St. Jude Makes Big Promises. Do They Hold Up?

    St. Jude Children's Research Hospital fundraises on the promise that "families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live."

    But a new investigation from ProPublica investigates that claim, a statement which helps the charity out-raise any other hospital of its type.

    We dive deep into the investigation and that statement.

  • 1378 - The Omicron Variant, Infected Deer, And Where The Pandemic Goes From Here

    An estimated 53 million Americans returned from their holiday travel this weekend to news of a new variant of COVID-19.

    The Omicron variant was first detected in South Africa and cases have since been reported in a growing number of countries including Germany, Canada, Australia, and the U.K.

    Experts say it's only a matter of time before cases are reported in the U.S. President Joe Biden spoke yesterday about the new variant, telling Americans not to panic.

    But even as we consider the immediate concerns over Omicron, scientists are pointing to a longer-term issue: a growing number of animals becoming infected with COVID-19. These spillover events where germs jump from humans to animals and back again can create new viral strains.

    We discuss what this means for the state of the pandemic.
