JOSLIN: Homophobia unacceptable in the face of growing monkeypox concerns

Monkeypox is mostly spread through person-to-person contact, including during sexual contact.

Indiana Capital Chronicle: No supporters on first day of Indiana abortion bill debate

Droves of abortion-rights and anti-abortion activists who descended on the Indiana Statehouse Monday were opposed to a Republican proposal that would ban virtually all abortions in the state. The widespread pushback indicates an upward battle for Indiana’s Republican supermajority, which is seeking to limit access to abortions in Indiana after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade opinion in late June.
