Missouri’s Republican state Senate passed a bill banning abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy. This includes cases of rape or incest, similar to the recently-passed Georgia abortion ban. The bill is not yet law, still requiring approval from the House and Governor. It is likely the bill will pass, as the House and Governorship are controlled by Republicans. This would make Missouri the eighth state to pass a comprehensive bill on abortion in the past few weeks.
For many years, women have fought for equal treatment, both at home and abroad. During many of their struggles, they faced considerable backlash for doing so. Now, in the eyes of many, the United States is a shining example of gender equality, at least in a legal sense. For the most part, a woman can do everything that a man can do. But unfortunately, there are still a number of areas in which the country does not provide women with equal rights. The following sexist laws still exist in parts of the country.

Everything is scarce. Time, space, human bodies, and all resources are limited. For each of them, there is a finite amount. Because of this finite amount, there are bound to be conflicts over who gets to use what. There will be conflict over who gets to use a piece of land or use a resource.

Undoubtedly one of the greatest medical innovations in human history is the invention of the vaccine. The science of vaccination was first seriously pioneered by Edward Jenner in 1796, when he noticed that milkmaids who had caught cowpox before became immune to smallpox later. To test his theory that humans could develop immunity, Jenner took pus from a milkmaid with cowpox and put it into a cut in the arm of an 8-year-old boy. Six weeks later, he inoculated the same boy with smallpox, observing that he did not catch smallpox. Based on his findings, he was able to develop the first vaccines.

I had the amazing opportunity to interview the founder and current President/CEO of Open Carry Texas, CJ Grisham. We discussed the organization’s goals and feats so far, as well as some of the current gun-related issues in the news today.
