Quick Glance: Arizona Republicans foil another effort to repeal 1864 abortion ban
  • Arizona House Republicans once again thwarted an attempt on Wednesday to repeal the state's nearly complete abortion ban from 1864, leaving Democrats without a vote on their repeal bill for the second consecutive week.

  • Despite facing pressure from influential conservatives, such as former President Trump and Senate hopeful Kari Lake, urging GOP leaders to lift the ban, the Republicans blocked the repeal.

  • State House Democrats made a procedural maneuver to attempt to suspend House rules and bring the repeal bill to the floor for discussion. However, this action was rejected by the GOP majority, with only one Republican, Representative Matt Gress, crossing party lines to support bringing up the repeal bill.

  • A similar endeavor to repeal the ban was obstructed by Republicans last week. Following persistent criticism of the law by Democrats both within and outside the state throughout the week, prominent figures like Trump and Lake recognized the political risks and advocated for a change in direction within the Legislature.

Quick Glance: Trump's Sex Life Unveiled as Hush Money Trial Begins
  • The opening day of Donald Trump’s criminal trial delved deep into his tabloid-fodder sex life, as lawyers and the judge debated how many salacious details jurors should eventually hear as they decide whether he broke the law to cover up hush money payments.

  • The historic first trial of a former U.S. president began Monday in a storied courthouse that has seen a host of high-profile cases over the years, from rap stars to movie moguls, but never one with such potential consequences for the nation and the world.

  • Despite Trump's open contempt for the trial, he was not disruptive in court but rather disinterested. However, Trump's lawyers managed to prevent jurors from being informed about specific allegations of sexual misconduct from 2016.

  • Prosecutors plan to highlight Trump's relationship with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and other women in court to show that he paid hush money to protect his political image.
