Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., promised on Thursday to fight for life in the Sunshine State after a judge temporarily blocked a 15-week abortion ban, according to a report from The Hill.

Following last week’s U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in the anticipated ruling of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the issue of abortion was returned to the states.

Thirty-five people were shot, five fatally, during a bloody holiday weekend in Chicago.

A 24-year-old woman was killed on Friday night during a shootout between two men in the city's Chinatown area, with one of the gunman and two others being wounded during the incident, according to reporting from ABC 7. The woman was struck in the torso and was taken to Stroger Hospital but died of her injuries, police say.

President Joe Biden on Friday made another characteristic verbal blunder, admitting to a reporter that what’s at stake in the issue of abortion is the decision to end the life of a “child.”

While Democrats will typically skate around the reality of abortion, speaking only in terms of “reproductive healthcare,” “fetuses” and the like, Biden broke sharply with this careful framing of the issue on Friday, telling a reporter that abortion was the decision to “abort a child.”
