Bills

A general view during a Parliamentary session in Bratislava, Slovakia, Friday, Nov. 29, 2019. Lawmakers in Slovakia are scheduled to debate a proposed law that would compel women seeking an abortion to first have an ultrasound and listen to the heartbeat of the embryo or fetus, a move many groups have decried as a backward step for women’s rights. The bill was submitted by three members of the conservative Slovak National Party, who wrote that it is intended “to ensure that women are informed about the current stage of their pregnancy” before having an abortion.

In this Oct. 29, 2019, photo, Donnesha Cooper touches a photo of her daughter, Alianna DeFreeze, in Cleveland. Her daughter’s murder and the murder of Reagan Tokes had a lot in common. Yet only one victim got a law with her name on it, Tokes, who was white. An Associated Press analysis found that more than 8 in 10 stand-alone laws named for victims of violent crime identified since 1990 honored white victims or groups of victims that included at least one white person. That has left black victims such as DeFreeze underrepresented by such laws. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
