The US state of Texas is tightening its abortion law. This is to ensure that "the life of every unborn child is protected with a heartbeat," said Republican Governor Greg Abbott. The law aims to prohibit abortions from the sixth week of pregnancy,
that is, from a point in time when many women do not even know they are pregnant. The law does not provide for any exceptions to the prohibition on termination of pregnancy, even in cases of incest or rape.
Around ten other Republican-ruled US states have passed similar abortion laws. However, all previous restrictive abortion laws of this type have been overturned by the courts. These laws conflict with the case law of the US Supreme Court.
Colombia has reopened the borders with four of its five neighboring countries despite the corona pandemic. The foreign ministry of the South American country announced the opening of the borders with 🇵🇦#Panama, 🇵🇪#Peru, 🇪🇨#Ecuador and 🇧🇷#Brazil,

🇵🇦#Panama's Foreign Ministry said the neighbour's decision jeopardized progress in containing the pandemic and border security. It was therefore decided to temporarily close the land, sea and river borders for travelers from 🇨🇴#Colombia from Thursday.

Negotiations on Turkey's membership to the EU began in 2005, and the country has also received pre-accession aid since then. In recent years, however, the country has moved further and further away from a Western-style democracy.
The European Parliament is now pressing for an official suspension of the accession negotiations. The European Parliament has proposed to officially suspend the negotiations on Turkey's accession to the European Union, which have already stood still,

gender-based brutality, extrajudicial killings, forced displacement, mass expropriation of land, malnutrition, destruction of basic infrastructure and crops, and looting. There are currently over 1.7 million internally displaced people (IDPs),
