Overturning Roe V. Wade Could Restrict More Than Abortion
The leak of a draft Supreme Court decision to end the nationwide right to abortion has sparked speculation — including by President Biden — that other landmark rulings could now be on shakier ground, including those that legalized same-sex marriage and birth control.

In the draft, which was published by Politico on Monday, Justice Samuel Alito takes pains to say that the legal logic at the heart of the conservatives' decision to overturn Roe v. Wade would not apply to other cases.

The country is a key producer of sunflower oil, wheat, corn and even honey, and the effects are being felt everywhere.
Ukraine is the world’s largest producer of sunflower oil and ranks among the top six exporters of wheat, corn, chicken and even honey.

The 2022 election will be the first in decades when Montana voters select not one but two U.S. representatives to advocate for the state's interests in Congress. Also up for the vote this year is control of the Montana Legislature, two seats on the state's utility regulation board and two seats on the Montana Supreme Court.
The first step for the political hopefuls is the June 7 primary election, where Montana voters will choose nominees to represent each of the state's recognized political parties in the Nov. 8 general election (independent candidates can qualify for the November ballot if they collect enough signatures).
