From Supreme Court decisions to the Jan. 6 hearings, we discuss the sway of national politics in NC
In recent weeks, decisions from the Supreme Court have reshaped swaths of American life.
Overturning almost a 50-year precedent, the Roe v. Wade reversal means there is no longer a constitutional right to abortion. About 26 states are expected to restrict, if not outright ban abortion, and the health implications for many women nationwide are bleak.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to fight climate change, despite increasing wildfires and droughts across the country, was also weakened.
Meanwhile, the ongoing Jan. 6 hearings are revealing just how precarious the last presidential transition of power truly was.
We discuss the latest in national politics and how it impacts the lives of North Carolinians.
