Just under 1 million people utilized abortion services in the U.S. in 2020, according to recent data from the Guttmacher Institute. Another report from Guttmacher in 2016 showed that 90% of abortion patients in the U.S. obtained their procedure in the first trimester. Medication abortion is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for up to 10 weeks into pregnancy, but there is good literature that has shown it is an effective method of abortion up to 11 weeks.

Who better to recreate the iconic Italian beef sandwich than Chicago-born chef Jeff Mauro, who first rose to Food Network fame as the sandwich king? The sandwich has risen in popularity recently thanks to fictional chef Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto, played by Jeremy Allen White on the FX show "The Bear." The gourmet version Berzatto plated up at his family's Chicago sandwich shop on the show had foodies drooling, and fans were quick to recreate their own versions of the dish -- thinly sliced seasoned roast beef that's simmered and served au jus on a French roll -- at home.
The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to decide their own stances on abortion access has led 16 states to cease nearly all services. An economic fallout may come next.

A child in Nebraska is suspected to have died from a rare case of brain-eating amoeba, health officials said Wednesday. If confirmed, it will be the first known death from Naegleria fowleri in the state's history, according to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

The Internal Revenue Service does not plan to use the nearly $80 billion it's set to receive in funding from the Inflation Reduction Act to hire 87,000 new agents in order to target middle class Americans, a Treasury Department official told ABC News, rejecting a claim widely circulated by Republican lawmakers and right-wing media personalities. A sizable portion of the money will go toward improving taxpayer services and modernizing antiquated, paper-based IRS operations, Treasury Department spokesperson Julia Krieger said, in an effort to update the agency -- well documented as being chronically starved of resources for decades. The majority of hires will fill the positions of about 50,000 IRS employees on the verge of retirement, Krieger said, which will net about 20 to 30-thousand workers, not 87,000.

The Florida state attorney who was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis this month sued the governor on Wednesday, claiming his removal from office violated his First Amendment rights. The lawsuit, filed in federal court, alleges the Republican governor retaliated against Andrew Warren, the Hillsborough County state attorney, for siding with progressive prosecutors who vowed not to prosecute crimes related to abortion and gender-transition treatments for children. Warren, a Democrat, has called the suspension "political theater" and has claimed DeSantis suspended him to advance his own career.

In June of this year, seven weeks before the FBI raided former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in search of classified materials, former Defense Department appointee and outspoken Trump loyalist Kash Patel vowed to retrieve classified documents from the National Archives and publish them on his website. Trump had just issued a letter instructing the National Archives to grant Patel and conservative journalist John Solomon access to nonpublic administration records, according to reporting at the time. Patel, who under Trump had been the chief of staff for the acting defense secretary, claimed in a string of interviews that Trump had declassified a trove of "Russiagate documents" in the final days of his administration.
