Abortion takes centre stage in Chile's election campaign


Chile's presidential run-off takes place this Sunday. Socialist candidate Michelle Bachelet is the favourite in the polls to beat right-wing candidate Evelyn Matthei. The campaign has centred around ethical issues, particularly abortion, which is current illegal in Chile. Bachelet wants a law authorising abortion in cases where the foetus is seriously malformed or the mother's life is in danger. Matthei opposes that idea and has vowed to govern according to the teachings of the Bible.

  • Trump Takes Aim At 'Weak,' 'Totally Incompetent' Supreme Court

    President Donald Trump on Saturday aimed a large dose of spleen at the US Supreme Court. According to Business Insider, Trump's latest outburst stems from his loss to now President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Trump and his campaign's legal team have so far lost all attempts made at reversing the election result. Trump said he had 'PROOF' of widespread fraud in the 2020 election, but did not provide any such evidence. During his tenure, Trump successfully nominated three justices to the court: Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett in 2020. But now, he counts them among the rest of the Supreme Court justices as 'totally incompetent' and 'weak.'
