Israeli Airline Banned From Asking Women To Switch Seats To Accomodate Men

- An Israeli airline has been banned from asking women to switch seats to accommodate the religious views of ultra-Orthodox Jewish men.

Flight attendants will no longer be able to ask women to switch seats because another passenger is opposed to sitting next to someone of the opposite gender, The New York Times reports

How the Senate health bill compares to House, 'Obamacare'

- WASHINGTON — The Senate Republican health care bill would guarantee immediate assistance for insurance markets that are struggling in many states.

    CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire state lawmakers have fixed a fetal homicide bill that critics said could've unintentionally let pregnant women kill anyone with impunity. The bill would allow murder charges to be brought against those who cause the death of a fetus. Nearly 40 other states have fetal homicide laws. It would allow fetuses that have reached 20 weeks after conception to be considered victims of murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide or assisted suicide
