    White House denies reports that US intelligence helped sink Russian ships.
    Washington Examiner (Moderate Right) • Factual Grade 71% • 2 min read

    Reports that U.S. intelligence helped Ukraine kill Russian generals and sink Russian ships are inaccurate, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. A reporter asked whether the news could escalate tensions between the U.S. and Russia, but the press secretary denied its validity. Psaki did not deny that the U.S. is providing some intelligence to Ukraine.
    The New York Times reported that intelligence the U.S. has provided has led to the killing of as many as 12 Russian generals. In the case of the Russian flagship Moskva, the U.S. identified the vessel and provided its location after Ukrainian officials inquired about a ship sailing in the Black Sea, U.S. officials told NBC News. Ukrainian forces then hit the ship with missiles, and it sank the next day.
    The Pentagon denied aspects of that report, saying the Biden administration did not know in advance that Ukrainian forces were going to target the ship and insisted it was not involved in the decision to launch the attack.

Is aborting a fetus acceptable within the following gestational time periods?

769 votes, 99 comments

Context: Congressional Democrats to push bill that would codify Roe v. Wade.


15 weeks - Babies born prematurely at 23 weeks will usually survive. 26 weeks is too late, but I think it would be infanticide to kill a 23-week-old premature baby in its incubator, so it would also be infanticide to kill it if it were located in its mother's uterus. Exceptions could be made if continuing the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother [...]. Prior to that, the fetus is not a viable life, and the mother's right to bodily control and freedom from undue governmental interference take precedence to the state's interest in preserving the potential for the fetus to grow into a viable baby.

Never - I support abortion in the instances of rape, incest, and threat to the mother’s health. Aside from that, I oppose abortion on moral grounds. [...] Those that do not desire pregnancy have access ...

26 weeks - No one is aborting a fetus for fun after 26 weeks. These are wanted pregnancies where the unthinkable has ...
