Drug mifepristone has a huge warning about miscarriage. The drug company that invented mifepristone put that together by the early nineteen nineties and then they developed the first pill packet.

And that's when they were sold as an abortion pill and bear says that it's helped make abortion access safer especially for those inclined to sign situations that would have otherwise opted for more dangerous methods.

"Video capturing a child's first steps or first words are first day of school. This is what so many of us do right? As parents, we document the moments that are important in our child's life and we posted online for our community to see. And as we do that. We are inevitably shaping our child's online presence. Most of the time the child in question doesn't really get a say in the matter and that creates complications as kids get older and realized that much of their life is already online and anyone can see it Taylor. Lawrence is a staff writer at the take who's been reporting on this her recent pieces called when kids realize their whole life is already online. She joins us via Skype Taylor. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much for having me, what provoked you to look into this. You know, there's so much about the set from the parent's perspective. But I just wanted you talk to them. So. Selves about when they surged to realize that they had its presence. What was the range of of responses when you engage them on this? I mean, it kind of just runs the gamut. Some kids were upset about the information that was out there about them. So they Google themselves and find, you know, in some cases, their parents have consented to school websites loosing about them. They were upset that may be the whole sports record was up there or that their parents had plus lot more public stuff than they realized. And then some kids really liked it like there was one boy who really felt like it made him feel famous to have all these pictures of himself on the internet. Maybe eighty percent of the kids that I spoke to didn't realize the extent of their internet presence, and the ones that did had parents had proactively warn them about it. But they had been told United staff line, but they got since they didn't have social media themselves. There would actually be that much about them. But in some cases, that's just not the case in your reporting in in these conversations. I mean, did it create tension in any of these relationships, especially as you? You got to like the middle school age or high school? That's when it starts to create tension. I think kids in elementary score the ones that I talked to you between third and fifth grade when they first Google themselves in pants, they're kind of like frustrated by what they find. Or they think it's novel. But it wasn't 'til kids got to middle school that I heard anybody really state like I my about this. I'm really frustrated desert or my dad or whatever. So I think middle school is often when kids want to get their own social media profiles. And I think they just want to start dictating their online presence for themselves. So I think that's the Olympic fiction agrees. But the bottom line is talk to your kids before you post. Yeah. And help them understand these platforms. Do you know a lot of parents wanted to their kids from these platforms? But I think parents need to have a better understanding of how these platforms work, and they just need to open the dialogue Taylor Lawrence. He's a staff writer at the Atlantic Taylor. Thanks so much. Yeah. Thank you so much for having me. Spain used to be one of the few European countries that did not have a far right party.

While President Trump negotiates over North Korea's nuclear weapons today to other nuclear powers have been shooting at each other. We heard yesterday of an Indian air raid into Pakistani territory today Pakistan, says it shot down two Indian aircraft inside its airspace Pakistan adds that its forces captured. An Indian pilot NPR's Lauren Freyer has been covering the story from Assam in northern India. Hi laurin. Hi, steve. There have been conflicting stories here. But what are the Pakistanis say they did the Pakistan says it shot down two Indian aircraft that entered its airspace though. It says they fell out of the sky and opposite sides of the line of control that's the defacto border between the Indian and Pakistani area areas of Kashmir Kashmir is divided territory in the Himalayas of these countries have been fighting over for an awfully long time Pakistan says it captured one of the Indian pilots now initially intended captured two pilots, and now it's corrected that and said, it has one pilot in custody and the Pakistani military spokesman actually tweeted a picture of him. Okay. So we have that evidence of someone in custody. What does India saying about all this will end? Yeah. Has a very different story. India says it was Pakistani planes that entered Indian airspace. Face. It says India scrambled planes to respond and shot down a Pakistani plane now the Indian government spokesman confirmed that India lost one of its fighter planes in this engagement, he called it. And he did confirm that one Indian pilot is missing in action. And we've also just heard that India has now summoned Pakistan's High Commissioner in Delhi. That's the equivalent of an ambassador summoned into a government meeting, isn't there? Also, a video of this pilot. That's been circulating. Dramatic video and we can't verify this video, but both Pakistani and Indian media are showing this it shows a man who says he is an Indian pilot in Pakistani custody, he says his name and his service number allowed the video then zooms into an Indian air force logo on his jacket. He's speaking in English to his captors. He's actually, very polite. He calls them, sir. His face is bloodied. He's blindfolded as I said, we can't verify this. But it is circulating widely in both countries, Lauren. I think a lot of Americans have been waking up the last couple of mornings startled to find Indians and Pakistanis shooting at each other which is fair enough. We've got a lot going on here, but how did events escalate to this point over the last few weeks. Right. So these are neighbors who have always been rivals, but the tensions really escalated two weeks ago with a suicide car bomb. They killed forty Indian troops on the Indian side of Kashmir. A Pakistan based militant group claimed responsibility. And India was really really angry and yesterday it retaliated says it conducted air strikes on militant training camp inside Pakistani-Controlled territory and killed many a very large number. It said a fighters their Pakistan denied any damage or casualties, although it did acknowledge that Indian fighter jets entered its airspace. And so today, we've got Pakistan responding saying it's shot down Indian planes, and how does this bombing? And then the military action that is followed fit into the broader decades long fight over this province of Kashmir. Right. So Kashmir is in the Himalayas. It's a beautiful valley. I was actually just there a couple of weeks ago. You can really see why they fight over it the conflict there, it goes all the way back to the founding of India and Pakistan when they got independence from Britain in nineteen forty seven at partition, Pakistan was carved out of the Muslim majority areas of India, and the one exception was Kashmir Kashmir's Muslim-majority area, but the local ruler at the time was a Hindu who decided to join India. And so the two countries have fought over this region of Kashmir pretty much ever since they've fought three wars in recent decades over Kashmir, then seventy two years later still a matter for live fire between India and Pakistan, Lauren. Thanks so much. You're welcome. That's NPR's Laura unfair. The economic and political crisis in Venezuela has forced more than three million people to flee most have gone to other Latin American countries many of those who could afford it have traveled to Spain which has linguistic and cultural ties Venezuela, but as Lucia Benedetti's reports from Barcelona the welcome there has not been that warm..

NPR's Lauren friars in Assam and northern India monitoring the story. Hi laurin. Hi, steve. Let's start with a Pakistani version of events. What do they say? They did. Right. So Pakistan says it shot down two Indian jets that entered its airspace military jets. It says they fell out of the sky and opposite sides of the line of control that's the defacto border between the Indian and Pakistani areas of Kashmir Kashmir is a divided territory that these countries have long been fighting over Pakistan says it captured the two Indian pilots of those aircraft. Now, we're getting. A very different story though from the Indian government in what way India says it was Pakistani planes that entered Indian airspace. It says India responded and shot down a Pakistani plane now the government's Indian government spokesman confirmed that India lost one of its own fighter planes in this engagement. He called it. And he confirmed that one Indian pilot is missing in action. And we're just getting word right now that India has summoned Pakistan's High Commissioner in New Delhi. That's the equivalent of an ambassador summoned to a government meeting just moments ago. Okay. So so many differences of views there. But it sounds like they agree. The two sides agree that something Indian was shot out of the sky went down. And that at least one Indian pilot was lost hasn't. There actually been some kind of video of Indian pilot dramatic video, and we can't verify this video, but both Pakistani and Indian media are showing this it shows a man who says.

So these are neighbors who have always been rivals, but the tensions really escalated two weeks ago with a suicide car bomb killed forty Indian troops on the Indian side of Kashmir a Pakistan based militant group claimed responsibility. And India was really really angry and yesterday it retaliated. It says it conducted air strike. On a militant training camp inside Pakistani-Controlled territory and killed many a very large number instead of fighters their Pakistan denied any damage or casualties, although it did acknowledge that Indian fighter jets entered its airspace. And today, we've got Pakistan responding saying it's shot down Indian claims and India confirms one of its pilots is missing and how does this bombing? And then the military action that is followed fit into the broader decades long fight over this province of Kashmir, right? So Kashmir is in the Himalayas. It's a beautiful valley. I was actually just there a couple of weeks ago. You can really see why they fight over it the conflict there, it goes all the way back to the founding of India and Pakistan when they got independence from Britain in nineteen forty seven at partition, Pakistan was carved out of the Muslim majority areas of India, and the one exception was Kashmir Kashmir's Muslim-majority area. But the local ruler at the time was a Hindu who decided to join India. And so the two countries have fought over this region of Kashmir pretty much ever since they've fought three wars in recent decades over Kashmir than seventy two years later still a matter for live fire between India and Pakistan, Lauren.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Here's one big question for President Trump's trade negotiator. What is the United States gaining through all the expense and pain of a trade war? Robert lighthizer is leading trade talks with China. Andy faces questions before a congressional committee today. Amy Sonoko is former government trade negotiator who has long experience with China and she's come by our studios. Good morning. Good morning. I should note this testimony happens. Just after the president put off an escalation in the trade war to allow time for more talks, which suggests they're getting close to a deal looking at it from the outside. Do you feel you understand how close they are? Well, if we listen to what the president is saying, and the Chinese confirm this there has been substantial progress being made in the talks, they are talking about setting a high level summit at mar-a-lago for the to to finalize an agreement and rhetorically there are. Signs that there is interest in both sides in a deal being made the challenge for embassador lighthizer today before congress is whether or not this deal is going to be the comprehensive deal. Addressing all of these underlying challenges that we the United States have been facing with China for a decade, whether they can do that in this next. US officials have said on this program. Our goal is to fundamentally get China to change the way, they do business. This is not a matter of tweaking one trade practice or another exactly and embassador lighthizer has been very consistent on this point. He has said we are going to be more aggressive than anyone in the past to confront China on its trade practices. It's unfair trade practices that undermine US interests and distort the global trading system. And he said we're going to do that by using all the tools at our disposal. Whether they're tariffs WTO, litigation or bad. Banding together with like minded countries to pressure China to change the highest profile of those of course, is the tariffs on products coming from China, which President Trump is imposed in which he has threatened to impose further, but has been as has been widely noted here. It's actually US consumers who pay the tariffs. It's US companies that pay the tariffs in terms of higher prices. As far as you can tell is the United States applying the right leverage to get China to move. Well, I think consistently across the board the US business community did not support application of tariffs as the proper remedy to the situation and the situation being that China distorts global trade rules and is undermining American companies in China. However now that we're mid process the US business community is saying let's stay tough on China. Let's not give away the leverage that we have gained by getting the Chinese to the negotiating table through application. Of these tariffs. Let's not let up until we have a real deal in place. Not a half deal that only involves purchase agreements, but one that actually in a verifiable way will bring China to change some of the underlying issues that harm American interests. And that's what embassador lighthizer is going to be hearing about from Capitol Hill this morning. I think he's preaching to the choir in many ways because he too wants a comprehensive deal. The question is to your original point. Do we have enough leverage to bring the Chinese to make substantial changes? I think President Trump continuously talking about a deal in the future. Maybe undermines us a little bit and trying to get and gain and maintain that leverage. In a few seconds is anything happening in China. That would make them really want to deal on their own for their own for their own purpose. Absolutely. The slowing of the Chinese economy is significant China is about to launch. Its annual National People's Congress meetings and next week in Beijing, there will be significant focus on the economy on the legislative agenda, and so from the Chinese perspective. Of course, they want this trade war ended this. Thanks very much for coming by really. Appreciate it. Great to be with you. Amy Celica was a former China trade negotiator for the US trade representative's office. She now works for the Albright. Stonebridge group the economic and political crisis in Venezuela has forced more than three million people to flee most have gone to other Latin American countries many of those who could afford it have traveled to Spain which has linguistic and cultural ties to Venezuela.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. What's legitimate way to criticize Israel away that is not anti semitic? Whatever is the proper way congresswoman Ilhan, Omar admits she did not manage it. She apologized for messages on Twitter suggesting that US support for Israel was all about the Benjamins about money, which sounded to many like a racist stereotype of Jews the many, many lawmakers who criticized Omar included her fellow democrat. Josh got Heimer of New Jersey is on the line. Congressman good morning morning. Thanks for having me. Congress Monday, Omar says apology among other things we should think through criticism, and I unequivocally apologize is that enough. I think certainly that was a very important step. You know, the comments that were made were hurtful and divisive. And I'm very glad that we took this important step. And of course, many of us came together to criticize it, and and so we cannot use age-old antisemitic tropes when we have. Discussions about these issues. We can disagree on policy. We you certainly can't use divisive and anti semitic language. Well, it's interesting. She obviously does have a policy disagreement and she in the same apology tries to rephrase it a little bit and ads at the end of the apology. I reaffirmed the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics. Whether it be a Packer the NRA. Now APEC we should explain for those who don't know. That's the American Israel Public affairs committee, which is very well known is its presence in US, politics problematic. Nothing many of us have very strong views about the importance of the American Israel relationship of tar security, and of course, the security of the region to try to divert attention from an antisemitic trope by bringing up other issues, I find frankly, a little offensive, but you know, we have our views because we have our views on things have many many folks out there, and many groups out there that agree that we need to support the American Israel relationship. You regard yourself as a supporter of Israel. I guess we should say I do, of course. I think it's. And by the way, there's been bipartisan. Support for Israel going back to its founding. And for good reason. Right. It's important to America's national security. It's a fighter of terror in the region against HAMAs and Hezbollah and others, and obviously very important to our security in the region. It sounds like you disagree. Then that there is undue influence by APEC, which is the group that Omar named or any other Jewish group in lobbying for Israel and the United States. It was as that what you're saying. Of course, I believe that. I think that, you know, those I find it, frankly, as I said offensive, you know, there's not who have our strong opinions about relationship and other people on the outside. Of course, have their opinions as well to claim that anybody, you know, frankly controls anyone's vote here, I think is is really off putting should she be punished in some way of summer demanding? I think that's up to others. You know, I'll just tell you what I thought was very important yesterday is that we came together. Several comments in the last month. This is not the first one several of us came together and wrote to our leadership saying we've got to talk about this in the democratic. A caucus, and we have to come out strongly against it. And frankly, that's what happened swiftly. I think that's the right thing. Our leadership came out against it. The Representative apologized, and to me that's exactly the kind of steps we should be taking, you know. We cannot for a second. Let anyone believe it's okay to use. Antisemitic tropes, and he used this language, and I think we have to be vigilant. Okay. So however, she criticized Israel in the US Israel relationship. It's widely. Agreed. It was the wrong way. But again, you have every right to disagree on policy policy, very briefly because there are a lot of Americans, including a lot of your fellow Democrats who say they are concerned about Israeli policies that Israelis have governed millions of Palestinians for more than fifty years who can't vote for the government that has most of the power that there's not a peace settlement. What is a fair way to criticize Israel policies on those issues. Would you said if we had twenty minutes, we can start this conversation? I think right. I think what is very important is that we know many of the policies in place or because of the history of frankly Palestinian terror. Whether that's a Mosser Hezbollah. There's been years of know payment lists literally the Palestinians paid to those who blow themselves up to kill Israelis so many of the policies in place, or therefore, of course, the security of the region and also to fight back against rockets and others that are firing at Israel is from terrorists. So you know, the the other key is for us. It's the democracy in the region. It's the oldest democracy that's operating that protects people in that region. And and frankly, it's critical to our security, and that's really the most important thing as US congressman is to worry about protecting America. And that is the why that really should case. Of course, it's also historic homeland to the Jewish people after the holocaust was a place where we go for security, but again, America security is essential because of because of our relationship there. Congressman thanks for the time. Really appreciate it was great to talk to you democrat. Josh got Heimer of New Jersey NPR's Kelsey Snell was listening and Kelsey. What did you hear there? I think that he touched on something that I. The we've been hearing from Democrats and generals that they they wanted their leadership to come in and say something and to step in and take a stance here. And we did see congressional leaders democratic leaders. They did rebuke Lamar for her her comments. So I think it'll be interesting to see how the Democrats move forward from here because it sounds like from the congressman point of view that they're ready to see how you know, how the conversation vaults NPR's Kelsey Snell. Thanks. Thank you. In spain. A trial begins today for twelve katelyn separatists. They helped organize a vote for independence in two thousand seventeen Lucia Benedetti's reports. Dozens.

"The time is now thirty four minutes past five it's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In his final state of the union speech in two thousand sixteen President Obama declared the state of our union is strong in his state of the union speech in two thousand eighteen President Trump declared the state of our union is strong. It's a common sentiment. President Bush said it President Clinton said it today. We can say the state of the union is delayed. House speaker Nancy Pelosi made a definite yesterday. The president may not use the house chamber until a partial government shutdown is over the president replied by Twitter last night that that is her prerogative, and he will wait NPR political editor Domenico Montanaro never waits. He's here. Once again this morning domestic oh, good morning. Hey there Stephen I'll wait as long as you need. Okay. Why did the president not seek some other place? Well, he decided to relent and back down, which is not usual for his for what he's done over his presidency. But he decided that he was not going to seek a different venue. He tweeted that there's no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber. He said he looks forward to giving it in the near future after the shutdown is over, and, you know, it's it's probably no coincidence that there were three polls out yesterday continuing to show the president's numbers getting worse and worse during the shutdown people are blaming him for it. They're saying the shutdown. Down is more of a problem than the border and his approval rating in a people for example, went to thirty four percent. The lowest of his presidency in that poll, and among independence almost seven ten disapprove of the job doing what I was looking at the fivethirtyeight polling average, you take an average of polls. Since anyone Paul might be a little off his approval rating was ten points water in December like forty-one percent approved around fifty one percent disapprove, which is really bad. And now it is far worse something like fifty five thirty nine fifty five percent, disapproval and only thirty nine percent approval. That is appalling for a president. Yeah. It's really expanded since the government shutdown began December twenty first and it's hard to ignore a confluence of polls. You know, you can cherry pick one thing. But when you see that trend, which is really the way to consume them, even the president has to look at that and think something has to change here. And you know, a Fox News poll is out yesterday. They conduct. Very good polls. And it showed, you know, three quarters of the country think that the border is I'm sorry. Three quarters of the country. Think that the shutdown is a big is a big problem compared to fewer fewer than that may be about six and ten at the border was and of course, that's poll that we would presume the president has seen since expenses. A lot of time. Watching Fox News and often often tweeting about it. Although he hasn't tweeted that poll so far as we so far as we know tweet that if it's a not favorable have Democrats offered the president any way to get out of this. Well, Democrats have not offered anything yet to the president except to say that opened the government up, and then we can negotiate which the Democrats are saying, you know, that's one of the bills. It's going to be voted on today and expected to fail. Of course, the president's proposal in the Senate is also going to be loaded on where he wants five point seven billion dollars for a wall and offering temporary immigrant temporary protections for immigrants in the country. But Democrats are likely to offer a counterproposal according to NPR Susan Davis that does spend significantly on border security, just not going to offer anything for that wall. Would it be five point seven billion dollars? Which is the exact amount. The president is demanding just not for a wall for other kinds of security. Well, you know, Democrats have shown a pension to actually spend potentially more money than that in past years when it comes to other things when you think about drones or technology, really the wall has become symbolic for both Democrats and Republicans at least for this president to say that this is his physical view of saying that he's tough on the border and Democrats saying that this is also a physical view of saying that you're trying to keep people out. So because Democrats in the past, of course, have been in favor of securing various parts of the border and fencing the medical thanks for the. Update. Really appreciate it. You're welcome.
