Oklahoma GOP governor signs one of nation’s strictest abortion bills into law

The bill, ​HB 4327, is among the nation's strictest on abortion and is a clear rebuke of the protections granted in the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide. Abortion rights advocates have vowed to mount a legal challenge to the law, which takes effect immediately.Under the measure, abortions are prohibited at any stage of pregnancy, with exceptions for medical emergencies or if the pregnancy was a result of rape, sexual assault or incest and reported to law enforcement.The law defines "fertilization" as "the fusion of a human spermatozoon with a human ovum." Though the bill considers a pregnancy to begin at fertilization, and not implantation, the bill does not restrict the use of forms of contraception that prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in a ute...

So how is he feeling now? “Good enough,” Ime Udoka said. “He tested it, and it feels better as the day went on. Did a little bit in shootaround and just some pregame now. He has enough movement where he’s ...

State, federal relief agencies survey Gaylord tornado damage

Gaylord — A team of about a dozen people from federal, state and local agencies wound their way through the Nottingham Forest mobile home park on Wednesday morning, knocking on doors and surveying rubble-filled lots.As the workers made their way from lot to lot, documenting damage they saw using clipboards, iPads and iPhones to take notes, they mostly encountered destroyed or empty homes, but occasionally arrived at a residence where someone was home.“You live here? We’re just going around with FEMA and SBA,” a state police officer with the Emergency Management and Homeland Security Department said to one homeowner on the back edge of the park.Wednesday marked the first day of the preliminary damage assessment process, where officials are seeking to take stock of the extent of the damag...

Brewers come back to beat light-hitting Padres, take series

There is so often no margin for error. There is no room, really, for anything else that doesn’t go their way in many games the Padres play.That has been OK much of the time.Wednesday afternoon was one of the games in which it was not.Yu Darvish tired near the end of an otherwise magnificent outing, former Padres infielder Luis Urías made a deft slide at third base, and the Brewers scored two runs in the seventh inning and held on for a 2-1 victory at Petco Park. (Box score.)The Padres are getting the kind of starting pitching teams hardly dare to dream about.Manny Machado is staging an MVP campaign, but the rotation’s group effort has shouldered much of the lifting toward the Padres’ 28-16 record.But Wednesday was the latest occurrence of the offensive ineffectiveness that has practical...

With 4 more HRs, SF Giants salvage home stand by clinching series vs. Mets

SAN FRANCISCO — There was no possible way, no imaginable scenario, that Joc Pederson and the Giants could find an encore Wednesday to match the maniacal back-and-forth with the Mets from the previous night, featuring three Joc Jams. That wasn’t going to stop them from trying. After mashing three home runs Wednesday night, Pederson did it again in his first trip to the plate Wednesday afternoon, barely 12 hours since his last one the night before. That was only the start of San Francisco’s onslaught in a 9-3 win over the Mets that clinched the three-game series with the NL East leaders and provided a positive spin on a homestand that couldn’t have started much worse. “It’s huge. We built on the momentum from last night,” Pederson said. “That’s a World Series-caliber team.” The Giants la...

Will Uvalde change the political debate on assault weapons in Texas?

AUSTIN — When Beto O'Rourke said during a nationally televised debate during his ill-fated quest for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination that "hell, yes," he'd confiscate assault-style weapons, he handed Republicans a ready-made attack ad.And even before O'Rourke formally entered the race for governor, Republican incumbent Greg Abbott seldom passed up a chance to remind gun-owning Texans that the former congressman from El Paso would be coming after their hunting rifles, handguns and any other firearm he could get his hands on.But in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting at a Texas school on top of several other similar incidents in recent years, some observers said the remark might not be as damaging to O'Rourke's fortunes with the November election less than six months away....
