It's Monday, July 25th, the news is next. Live from NPR news in Washington, Angkor of a Coleman, vice president Harris travels to Indiana today to meet with Indiana democratic lawmakers. They'll talk about ways they can counteract Indiana Republican lawmakers who are seeking to ban all abortions in the state. Indiana public broadcasting's Brandon Smith says Indiana Republicans have a super majority in the state legislature and can act decisively on the issue. Well, fundamentally they want to ban it, but just how far they go is the unknown here. But let's start with what the head of the Indiana Senate, roderick bray said, is he unveiled the initial abortion Bill last week. Our underlying goal is to protect human life, promote more adoption and less abortion by limiting abortion to the life of the mother, rape, and incest. Abortion writes in Indiana got attention this month after a doctor in the state performed an abortion on a ten year old girl who had been raped. The child was from Ohio, where nearly all abortions are banned, she had to travel to Indiana for the procedure. Pope Francis will deliver an apology in Canada today for the Catholic Church's treatment of indigenous children in its residential schools. Emma Jacobs has more.

For NPR news, I'm Emma Jacobs in Edmonton, with monkeypox now a global public health emergency, the pressure is on officials to ramp up the response here in the U.S., NPR's Becky Sullivan has worn. The CDC has reported thousands of monkeypox cases across the U.S. mostly in men who have sex with men, but also in some women and children. The WHO's announcement could put pressure on The White House to make a similar emergency declaration. The Biden administration has made tens of thousands of vaccine doses available in The White House says 1.6 million total will be available in the coming months. But local health officials have reported that demand far outpaces the limited supply.

"As employees or entrepreneurs More online at Kaufman dot org It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Leila folden in Washington D.C. And I'm a Martinez and Culver City California Nearly a week after the mass shooting and you've all the Texas legislation to freeze the sale of handguns has been introduced in Canada by prime minister Justin Trudeau It will no longer be possible to buy sell transfer or import handguns Anywhere in Canada In other words we're capping the market for handguns Receiving proposals may also make buybacks of assault style weapons mandatory For more reporter Emma Jacobs joins us from Montreal Emma how strict would these Canadian handgun restrictions be Prime minister Trudeau notably is not calling this a ban but a freeze on new handgun purchases The government will also require long gun owners to make permanent modifications so they can't hold more than 5 rounds of ammunition People involved with domestic violence or stalking would lose their firearms license and a new red flag law would let courts demand that someone identified as a danger to themselves or to others surrender their firearms to police All right now tell us about the timing of all this What exactly prompted this Back in April of 2020 Canada's deadliest mass shooting took place That's when a man in rural Nova Scotia shot and killed 22 people at multiple locations over a 13 hour period Since then Trudeau's government has introduced a series of gun control bills and this announcement does come just after the horrific school shooting and Yuval day which received extensive media coverage in Canada But this is something the government has been working on for a while The overall number of gun crimes and deaths has been rising in Canada for a number of years and the majority of those involve handguns Back in 2020 Canada did ban 1500 models of assault style weapons including the AR-15 which has been used in many mass shootings One of Trudeau's cabinet ministers says the government intends to launch a mandatory buyback of those weapons later this year The steps that Canada is taking they do echo what New Zealand's government did in 2019 after a gunman killed 51 people at two mosques in the city of Christchurch What's different is that Canada on New Zealand shares a very long border with the country with the largest number of guns in the world They're going to ask you about that Yeah I'm going to ask about that in a second I'm wondering that Trudeau proposed it so how likely will it be approved by the Canadian parliament Trudeau and allied parties likely have the votes to pass this You've got to remember there's no Second Amendment in Canada There is no right to gotten ownership here And Trudeau argues that other than sports shooting or hunting there is no reason anyone in Canada should need guns in their everyday lives All right so what would stop someone Emma from just jumping over the border and buy a gun in the United States a handgun Well imports would also be barred here but police departments say Canada has an American gun problem that really has to do with smuggling in this bill ups the penalties for smuggling guns Last year Toronto police said 86% of guns they seized after they'd been used in crimes could be traced back to the U.S. A couple of weeks ago police in Ontario they found a drone near the border that had been carrying 11 handguns when it got stuck in a tree And actually the gunman in Nova Scotia killing in the Nova Scotia killings in 2020 He used multiple firearms He'd smuggled in himself from Maine That's reporter Emma Jacobs in Montreal Emma thanks Thank you There's been a year's long dispute over mail in ballots in the key swing state of Pennsylvania This particular fight is over ballots that arrive on time but are missing something on the envelopes they're in A date handwritten by the voter That detail has sparked multiple legal challenges that may have big implications including in a razor thin Republican primary race that could determine which party will control the next Senate NPR's hansi lo Wang covers voting and he joins us now Hi hansi Hey Leela Okay So how many mail in ballot envelopes are missing that handwritten date that we're talking about In this Pennsylvania Republican primary for an open Senate seat we're talking about some 860 mail in ballots that were again received on time by local election officials but did not meet this requirement under Pennsylvania law that says voters have to fill out date and sign the back of this envelope Now that number may not sound like much but keep in mind as of Monday there's a margin of fewer than 1000 votes between the two Republican frontrunners doctor mehmet Oz the celebrity TV doctor backed by former president Donald Trump and David McCormick a former CEO of a hedge fund and there's a hearing before a state court today because McCormick has put in an emergency request for a court order that would require these ballots without handwritten dates to be counted And by the way Macquarie has been doing better with mail in ballots so far Okay but if under Pennsylvania law voters are required to handwrite a date on those ballot envelopes and these envelopes don't have those dates What's David McCormick's argument for counting them Well McCormick's attorneys are citing in part a recent ruling by a federal court and another lawsuit that case is over 257 ballots without handwritten dates in a county level election last year And this month a panel of federal judges on an appeals court rule that not counting those ballots without written dates violates the Civil Rights Act which bans denying a person's right to vote for a reason that is quote not material in determining whether that person qualifies interstate law to vote and stay election officials have specified that those handwritten dates are not used to determine a voter's eligibility And in fact ballot envelopes with the incorrect dates were counted in that county election but this is all really a tangle of court rulings right now between federal courts and state courts which back in 2020 ultimately ruled to count ballots without handwritten dates But for a case about a 2021 election the state courts ruled that opposite way So you can see how there's been a lot of back and forth these past couple of years So any sense of how all of this is going to get resolved Well this federal appeals court ruling ordering these ballots without handwritten dates to be counted That ruling is expected to be appealed to the Supreme Court soon so I'm watching to see how that plays out In the meantime there's this recount happening and results are due next week for this Republican Senate primary in Pennsylvania and watching to see what state courts may order this week and how that could affect the recount results And you know this is all part of this intense scrutiny over mail in voting that is really started since the surge of voting by mail began with the pandemic And you know what's at stake here is which Republican will run in November for this open Senate seat that could determine which party controls the next Senate and another big question is the voting rights of registered voters in Pennsylvania and whose votes get counted and let's not forget Pennsylvania could be one of the states in 2024 that decides who is the next president NPR correspondent hansi lo Wang reports on voting hansi thank you so much Welcome Leila This is NPR news Support for NPR comes

"Big rig trucks and other vehicles shut down at least three border crossings between Canada and the U.S. in protest of pandemic health measures Tucker's and like minded demonstrators arrived in a convoy at Ottawa's parliament hill two weeks ago they have been there ever since Scott basinet drove 2000 miles from his home in Edmonton to join the protest In my 52 years of being on this planet I don't think I've ever been as proud to be a Canadian as I am down here with these people Similar anti government demonstrations are now being organized in other countries Reporter Emma Jacobs is covering this and joins us now from Montreal hi Emma Good morning Good morning So what's the latest on these protests So in addition to Ottawa in a border crossing between Alberta and Montana that's been obstructed for the past two weeks there are now two more border blockades One is in Manitoba and one is on the Canadian side of the ambassador bridge which connects Detroit to Windsor Ontario This is the busiest border crossing in North America It carries more than a quarter of U.S. Canada trade and is a key corridor for the auto industry So plants on both sides of the border have had stoppages because they can't get parts So even though the number of people involved in these demonstrations is relatively small they're able to have an outsized impact that is now growing beyond Canada So a convoy left from nice in the South of France this week others could take place in Europe and in the U.S. online discussions are growing about how a convoy could be time to disrupt the Super Bowl Not only about 10% of eligible Canadians are unvaccinated So where are these protesters getting their support from Well again they've figured out how to cause a lot of mayhem with small numbers But beyond that it seems like some Canadian activists who really come from the far right in some cases and some have some pretty extreme anti government views They've managed to tap into frustration of those who aren't vaccinated some people really entrenched in conspiracy theories And maybe a little of the general fatigue with restrictions in Canada generally measures have been much stricter than in the U.S. throughout the pandemic But there's also clearly support coming from abroad the convoy has raised a lot of money more than it likely could from Canadians alone And in the U.S. there's been a lot of coverage on right wing media and support from high profile Republicans like former president Donald Trump And this has probably helped drive donations and attention Now two of the convoys biggest fundraising campaigns have been halted first GoFundMe found the convoy was violating its terms of service and refunded all donations The convoy then moved to another Christian fundraising site and raised millions more dollars But yesterday Ontario a court froze those funds Still as one person said to me this these crowdfunding campaigns have almost become more about the crowds than the funding they're symbols of support So how does this end I unclear Ottawa residents are upset about the lack of leadership at the ambassador bridge There's probably greater urgency because it is such a key link in this pressure on both the government's fun Ontario and the federal government to step in That's a reporter Emma Jacobs in Montreal.

Rick steves as we consider a few of them which includes in her book the littler museums of paris. We're at eight seven seven three three. Three rick and radio. At rick steves dot com. Our conversation was recorded before the pandemic lockdowns began him. Thank you for having me. I find that everybody these days especially wants to go to the same places. There's this sort of instagram herd mentality. Everybody wants their selfie in front of the mona lisa. And so on as a as a person who knows and loves paris. Does it seem to you that this is a real challenge for people to get away from those famous museums and give a little. Give a little love to the other sites you know. I do think that's true. But i also think a lot of people sort of want their unique experience of a city that so many people go to so. I think a lot of people are looking for somewhere. Everyone else's not going in the rewards of that are greater now than ever. I mean people wait for two hours to get into the or seeing you can step right in to the clooney museum or you can step right into the rodin museum. Yes absolutely and there. It pop up. Museums are also very big in paris right now. So what does that mean i. It's about the experience of going to space. That is you know only going to be open for a couple of months and you've got to be in the know when to to see something else. Well that sounds like a dirty trick on a tourist. How it a tourist be in the know and not miss something like that. Yeah you got to pay attention a lot of research and reading ahead of time because there's lots going on in paris that's for sure for sure all the time so let's talk about some of the museums that that i think are substantial but i think they're under appreciated What what is your take on the colonel fillet. The music have day is undergoing a big renovation. I actually haven't been there yet but it's going to be fantastic and it's a history museum. The history of paris and it has period rooms which are are very fun to walk through and just all sorts of of relics from hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years of the city's history and you explained in your book the littler museums of paris. That barron houseman actually had something to do with the creation of this collection. Or 'cause houseman. I think of as the guy who who brought parasol of these grand boulevards and all of this uniform architecture where you've got the same amount of floors in the in the nice Slate roofs and so on Did he recognize that. All this development is going to bulldoze some of the heritage of the of the city. You know it's it's funny because he is. He's really criticized for destroying medieval peres but at the same time was was looking to create a place that would preserve some of the history and that actually incorporated elements from some of the buildings. He took down in. The carnival has more items than the liuw actually. So they've got plenty to show off in that museum. Yeah their reserves are insane. There's no bench and that goes back to the sixteen hundred and they actually took over a second. It's actually now To urban mansions that are combined by little walkway. So if you want sort of. Just your quintessential kind of historical museum for paris carnival as a good one absolutely now. Another one is the museum of the middle ages museum to clooney and that's actually built on the remains of a third century. Roman bath reminding us. That peres was a roman town. Yes it it is also something that that started from a private collection like a lot of museums did and has just grown and grown and is a really special and unique place to visit and it's never crowded it's amazing to me. It's exquisite art of the middle ages. This is the museum of the middle ages in paris was so important in the middle ages. And it's right there in the in the left bank. You can walk to it in ten minutes from all the touristy stuff you do in the latin quarter it's got some particular exhibits that just the play away. The lady and the unicorn tapestry is one of the most sumptuous pieces of art anywhere. It's what's your take on that wonderful tapestry. That's what six hundred years old when some people may have heard about it. That's one of the more famous art objects in paris But it is in this smaller museum and you can see it up close. It's been beautifully restored and you can read. You know are they're all these takes on what it means. What the tapestries. Stand for the sort of mysterious woman with a unicorn in these six different scenes. Also we've got the famous heads from the notre dame that are that are no undisputed in the in the safety of the museum young and for a lot longtime people thought those had been thrown in the senate and we're gone and then they were were rediscovered and came to the clooney.
