Prince William is opening up about the night nearly a decade ago he sang and danced with Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi, and what the experience taught him about not taking himself too seriously. William recalled that while watching Bon Jovi perform at a fundraising gala in 2013 for Centrepoint, a U.K. homeless charity, Swift put her hand on his arm and said to him, "Come on William, let's go and sing." With that invitation, William said he got up on stage and sang and danced to Bon Jovi's hit song "Livin' On a Prayer."

Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, the two major Supreme Court rulings on abortion that protect a woman's right to end a pregnancy before fetal viability.
