The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday chose not to hear an appeal on a Kentucky law reproductive rights groups say is intended only to "shame and intimidate" patients, effectively upholding the statute. The justices did not offer a comment on their reasoning for declining to hear the ACLU's arguments against H.B. 2, which requires doctors at the state's only remaining clinic that provides abortions to perform an ultrasound before giving a patient abortion care. "Healthcare should be free from shame, stigma, and medically unnecessary mandates." —Physicians for Reproductive HealthUnder the law, doctors are required to describe the ultrasound images to the patient in detail while audio of the fetal heartbeat plays, leading the ACLU to describe H.B. 2 as a "forced narrated ultrasound law."

Saturday’s New York Times ran a full-page lead National section story claiming “Transgender People See Protections Slip Away.” The story by reporter Lola Fadulu is the latest overheated, un-journalistic genuflection to the aggressive side of the transgender movement, while conveniently conflates “gender identity” with post-surgery transgender people. In October 2018 the paper embarrassed itself with its panicky coverage of the Trump administration’s initial stand for science when it comes to defining people in biological terms as either males or ...

Descovy, with its brand new patent, could easily slip into the market niche previously occupied by Truvada, thus enabling Gilead to continue to sell a new version of PrEP for the $1,800 per month (or more) that it has been making on Truvada.
