Wade, which had guaranteed a woman's right to an abortion for nearly 50 years. Now, it'll be up to the states to decide whether to ban or restrict abortions. We've been expecting this decision ever since a draft opinion was leaked back in May. But today, we're asking: what happens next?  Attorney Greer Donley tells us she expects "chaos” and “confusion" and is sharing the potential legal consequences of the Supreme Court ruling. She recently co-authored a paper published in the Columbia Law Review about this topic called “The New Abortion Battleground.” We also get the response and reaction from the president of Texas Right to Life, who also has his doctorate in bioethics and health policy, Dr. John Seago.  Get ad-free episodes and support the show by becoming an INSIDER: www.theNewsWorthy.com/insider Follow us on Instagram @newsworthypod

    At times, it's felt like the whole world tuned in to see the drama unfold between divorced actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The defamation trial dominated the conversation on social media for the last month and a half and sharply divided viewers who took sides. The jury ultimately ruled in Depp's favor and decided Heard lied about Depp abusing her. Supporters say Depp should be applauded for defending his reputation. Critics have expressed concern that this verdict could make domestic violence victims afraid to speak up against alleged abusers. To help provide an analysis of it all, I spoke with a legal expert: former L.A. county prosecutor and Youtube star Emily D. Baker. Her live-streamed coverage of the trial attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers.

Officials say it will fight the spread of misleading or false information that could have real-life consequences, especially when it comes from the Russian government or human smugglers.  But there's not a lot of information yet about how it will work. Some even worry it will turn into something like the fictional “Ministry of Truth” that pushed state-sponsored propaganda in the novel “1984.” We hope to break down the arguments from both sides of this and clear up any confusion you may have after seeing some of the headlines.
