Tornado tears through Oklahoma community, killing at least two

Tornado tears through Oklahoma community, killing at least twoA tornado devastated a small community near Oklahoma City late on Saturday, killing at least two people and injuring several more, officials said, as a succession of violent storms kept pounding the Central Plains states. The twister struck El Reno, Oklahoma, at about 10:30 p.m. local time (0330 GMT), turning a hotel and mobile home park into a debris field and sending first responders on a desperate search for survivors, the city's mayor said. "It's a pretty devastating sight," El Reno Mayor Matt White said on Sunday in a news briefing.



Support for abortion rights grows as some U.S. states curb access: Reuters/Ipsos poll

Support for abortion rights grows as some U.S. states curb access: Reuters/Ipsos pollThe poll found that 58% of American adults said abortion should be legal in most or all cases, up from 50% who said that in a similar poll that ran in July 2018. While support broke down along partisan lines, passions were higher among registered Democrats, with 81% saying abortion should be legal in most or all cases, while 55% of registered Republicans said it should be illegal in most or all cases. This year, eight Republican-led states have passed new restrictions on abortion, measures that activists said are aimed at provoking the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.

Three black transgender women died of gunshot wounds within five days this month in Cleveland, Dallas and Philadelphia, and five total have been killed this year. By coincidence, President Donald Trump's administration took action this week that would deny or reduce services to transgender people.
