Battle lines have been drawn over the future of abortion in America on the eve of President Trump's nomination of a second justice to the USA supreme court that could put the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v Wade in jeopardy. "We've been talking about this for 36 years going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O'Connor, and after that you only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe". This will be 6.30 am IST, 10 July.

Those are very terrific people.
