House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Thursday that she plans to bring up legislation that would codify Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that protects the right to choose to have an abortion, as soon as the House returns from recess this month.

“Upon our return, the House will bring up Congresswoman Judy Chu’s Women’s Health Protection Act to enshrine into law reproductive health care for all women across America,” Pelosi said in a statement.

SB8 is the most extreme, dangerous abortion ban in half a century, and its purpose is to destroy Roe v. Wade, and even refuses to make exceptions for cases of rape and incest,” Pelosi said.

The Women’s Health Protection Act likely has the votes to pass the House, but it would almost certainly hit a wall in the Senate.

Legislation needs 60 votes to advance in the Senate because of the filibuster rule, and there are only 50 senators in the Democratic caucus.

There are two pro-choice Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine), but that still doesn’t get Democrats to 60. »

Ubisoft has just released the official Far Cry 6 PC specifications, and they're steeper than we had imagined, particularly if you plan to activate ray tracing features (reflections and shadows).

The real saving grace for Far Cry 6 on PC might be AMD's FSR, as the recommendations are based on tests that did not include this performance-saving technology.

Texans are trolling an anonymous tip line for reporting suspected abortions

Authored by

Texas' bill-to-be, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed back in May, is considered one of the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the country.

Though the bill is set to go into law on September 1, some are already using the site to submit fake tips.

The trolls are not only giving a headache to whoever has to go through the anonymous tips, but standing up for Texas women in the process. »
