G7 leaders vow to support Ukraine for ‘as long as it takes’

G-7 will support Ukraine as long as it takesLeaders of the G7 advanced economies promised Monday to extend their financial, military and humanitarian support to Ukraine “for as long as it takes,” stressing that the country must be able to safeguard its sovereignty and “choose its own future.”

In a statement released on the second day of a G7 summit at Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps, the group expressed its “unwavering commitment to support the government and people of Ukraine in their courageous defence of their country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” and said that its condemns and “will not recognise Russia’s continued attempts to redraw borders by force.”

The “as long it takes” commitment carries an obvious echo of the remarks by former President of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi who said in 2012 that his institution would do “whatever it takes” to preserve the euro currency, marking a turnaround in the financial crisis. Draghi is today Italy’s prime minister and is attending the event with fellow leaders from the U.S, U.K,, France, Germany, Japan and Canada.



Pelosi outlines possible legislative response to Roe reversal

Nancy PelosiSpeaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday outlined several legislative proposals House Democrats are weighing as responses to the Supreme Court’s Friday decision overturning the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a constitutional right to abortion services.

In a letter to her troops, Pelosi said Democrats have been bracing for the high court’s action since a draft ruling was published by Politico early last month.

Pelosi cited three specific proposals that House Democrats are considering.

One would codify the 1973 Roe decision into law. Another would make clear that women are free to travel across the country for any reason — an effort to preempt any attempts by states to prohibit cross-state travel in pursuit of legal abortion services. And a third would protect reproductive health data, such as that stored on apps, from being collected and distributed to third parties.


The end of Roe v. Wade has huge economic implications for male partners, too

Men must support choice

There's a mounting body of evidence on how having or being denied an abortion affects pregnant people, including impacts on their mental health and the finances of them and their children. The effects on their male partners have received less attention.

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, experts say that no longer should be the case.

"It's really naïve to think that the repeal of Roe is only going to impact women and pregnant people," said Dr. Bethany Everett, a professor of sociology at the University of Utah.

While the issue disproportionately impacts people who can get pregnant, Dr. Everett says it's important to look at abortion access from all sides, as limits on abortion access likely will have broader implications for society as a whole.


Russia-Ukraine war: What happened today (June 27)

Ukraine war 6/27

A Russian missile hit a crowded shopping mall in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk. The regional governor said at least 13 people were killed and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia of trying to sabotage people's normal life, targeting a site with over 1,000 people believed inside that posed no military threat. Monday also saw deadly attacks in other Ukrainian cities including Kharkiv and Lysychansk, Ukrainian authorities said. More than 50 Russian missiles hit cities across Ukraine over the weekend.

NATO aims to increase the strength of its rapid reaction force from 40,000 to 300,000 troops, the alliance's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said. Stoltenberg called the change part of the "biggest overhaul of collective defense and deterrence since the Cold War." NATO allies will meet this week in Madrid and are also expected to approve additional aid to Ukraine.

The investigators had a warrant and seized his iPhone, the filing says, and agents were able to access his email accounts.

The lawyer said in the filing the agents “forced” him to unlock the device.

Three killed as Amtrak train hits truck

Three people were killed and several others were injured when a passenger train traveling from Los Angeles to Chicago struck a dump truck and derailed in a remote, rural area of Missouri on Monday, officials said.

Two of the people who died were on the train and one was in the truck, Missouri state highway patrol spokesman Corporal Justin Dunn said. It was not immediately clear exactly how many people were hurt, the patrol said, but hospitals reported receiving more than 40 patients from the crash and were expecting more.

At least eight medical helicopters were responding from around the state, Matt Daugherty, director of business development at Lifeflight Eagle, told the Kansas City Star. Daugherty said he knew there were a number of injuries and some people were in critical condition.


Louisiana judge blocks abortion ban amid uproar after Roe v Wade ruling

Louisiana judge blocks banA Louisiana judge on Monday temporarily stopped the state from enforcing Republican-backed laws banning abortion, set to take effect after the US supreme court ended the constitutional right to the procedure last week.

Louisiana is one of 13 states which passed “trigger laws”, to ban or severely restrict abortions once the supreme court overturned the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that recognized a right to the procedure. It did so on Friday, stoking uproar among progressives and protests and counter-protests on the streets of major cities.

In New Orleans on Monday, an Orleans Parish civil district court judge, Robin Giarrusso, issued a temporary restraining order, blocking the state ban.

The case before Judge Giarruso, a Democrat, was brought by Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, one of three abortion clinics in Louisiana.
