Judge Andrew Napolitano: The Supreme Court's most controversial decision since World War II

Tuesday 23:39 GMT

During one week in January 1973, President Richard M. Nixon was inaugurated to his second term, former President Lyndon Baines Johnson died, the United States and North Vietnam entered into the Paris peace accords, and the Supreme Court legalized abortion.

El Salvador court frees woman on trial after bearing rapist's baby

Tuesday 21:51 GMT

A rape victim who was charged with attempted murder in El Salvador after giving birth to her abuser’s baby has been found not guilty and freed from jail.

Imelda Cortez, 20, has been in custody since April 2017 after giving birth in a latrine to a baby girl fathered by her abusive stepfather. She was facing 20 years in prison after prosecutors argued that failing to tell anyone about the pregnancy or seek medical attention for the baby amounted to attempted murder.
