News ImageU.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday ordered a review of a government database used for background checks on gun buyers, after a man who killed 26 people in a Texas church was left off the system despite having a criminal record.

U.S. judge strikes down Texas measure to limit second-trimester abortions
News ImageBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A U.S. district judge on Wednesday struck down parts of a Texas law that would ban the most common type of second-trimester abortions in the state, after plaintiffs argued the procedure was safe, legal and necessary for women's health. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel in Austin issued a permanent injunction against the provisions that were in legislation known as Senate Bill 8 (SB 8) and set to take effect this year, saying they "are facially unconstitutional." He added: "The act intervenes in the medical process of abortion prior to viability in an unduly burdensome manner." Texas, the most-populous Republican-controlled state, has been at the forefront of trying to impose abortion restrictions.
