Georgia is one of several states that have pushed for bans prohibiting abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected -- which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and when some women may not yet know they are pregnant.

Australia acted similarly in the aftermath of the 1996 Port Arthur shooting, which left 35 people dead. Then-prime minister John Howard — a conservative politician and close friend of George W. Bush — passed sweeping gun control legislation just 12 days after the massacre. Since then, there has not been a single mass shooting in Australia.

Judge questions whether House can sue over border wall funding.
A federal judge in Washington expressed skepticism Thursday about whether the federal courts should jump into the middle of an “ugly dispute between the political branches” over the Trump administration plan to move around federal funds to build a border wall.
