    Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies? | Big Think

    Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs are fertilized than become humans. Eggs get fertilized and by that I mean sperm get accepted by ova a lot. But that’s not all you need. You have to attach to the uterine wall, the inside of a womb, a woman’s womb. But if you’re going to hold that as a standard, that is to say if you’re going to say when an egg is fertilized it’s therefore has the same rights as an individual, then whom are you going to sue?

    Mr. Speaker: Member for Saanich North and the Islands. Yes, thank you Mr. Speaker It’s my pleasure to stand today and speak to Bill 2, the Protection of Public Participation Act of 2019.

    Riane Harper ’17 on why she’s a fan of “Legislation and the Regulatory State”

    I am a big fan of the Legislation and the Regulatory State class as a 1L. I think it’s one of the most important classes that you can take at NYU, and I don’t just say that as a government nerd. I did not actually know that much about how the US government is structured, and all the different ways that agencies have to interact with the public and with the judiciary before I took the class. It was a huge help to understand why I was doing the things I did when I worked in the federal government, and it was really useful, I think, to understanding how to…

    Democrats Throw an Obamacare Hail Mary, Asks Supreme Court to Declare Law Constitutional

    Desperate Democrats have just thrown an Obamacare “Hail Mary” pass by asking the Supreme Court to rule that the health care law is constitutional, as Reuters reports: “The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives and 20 Democratic-led states asked the Supreme Court on Friday to declare that Obamacare does not violate the Constitution as lower courts have found in a lawsuit brought by Republican-led states. The House and the states, including New York and California, want the Supreme Court to hear their appeals of a Dec. 18 ruling by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed the 2010 law’s “individual mandate” that required people to obtain health insurance…
