A proposed law places a $10K bounty on sexual abusers — taking a jab at Texas' abortion "bounty hunters"

Under Justice Department seeks emergency order to block Texas abortion law, civilians can sue anyone who performs or helps a woman get an abortion for $10,000. Now, an Illinois state representative is proposing a law to flip that mandate — and allow anyone who is a victim of sexual assault or who has an unwanted pregnancy to sue the perpetrator for $10,000.

Opinion: Republicans fought for Black rights 155 years ago. Now they're limiting them.

Regarding “Foreign terrorists never our biggest threat,” (Sept. 10): The Republicans giveth and the Republicans taketh away, to borrow and amend a biblical quote. The Abraham Lincoln Republicans of the 1860s were willing to embark upon a civil war that resulted in some 750,000 deaths and ended the crime against humanity: Black slavery. Now, 155 years after the war, the Republicans have another goal: limiting minority voting rights. And, that attempt is cloaked in other words — “protection of our elections” being foremost. Inflamed by the likes of the most unqualified, unprincipled man in our political history to be our president, people are putting our democracy in danger. Witness Jan. 6, 2021. Treason, pure and simple, with most of the perpetrators still walking the streets. Paul Krugman is a first-rate reporter and intellect. Take the time to read his column. Our country's democratic political system is truly endangered.

The order, from Judge Robert Pitman of the Western District of Texas, means that the law will remain in place for now. Just after the judge’s move, the department asked him to move more aggressively and hold a hearing on September 20 to decide whether the law should be blocked even on a temporary basis, saying that waiting until October would endanger too many women. On Thursday, Pitman denied that request.
