  1. House Democrats File Bill to Force All Americans to Fund Abortions NATIONAL STEVEN ERTELT JAN 16, 2019 | 12:35PM WASHINGTON, DC What a difference a party makes. When pro-life Republicans controlled the House of Representatives, they passed legislation to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and to ban late-term abortions.

And the next item on their list is forcing all Americans to fund abortions here in the United States: But a brand new poll finds most Americans oppose funding abortions with taxpayer dollars. A new national poll conducted by Marist University finds an overwhelming majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion and would like Roe v. Wade reinterpreted to allow restrictions on abortions. By a double-digit margin, a majority of all Americans oppose any taxpayer funding of abortion (54 percent to 39 percent). In addition, the survey found that three-quarters (75 percent) of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion abroad, fewer than two in 10 (19 percent) support such funding. Opposition to this funding includes most Republicans (94 percent) and independents (80 percent) and a majority of Democrats (56 percent).

Asian stock markets jumped after the talks extended to a third unplanned day, fueling optimism that the world's two largest economies could reach a trade deal to avoid a global confrontation that could seriously disrupt the global economy.

The meetings this week were the first direct talks since US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed in December to a 90-day truce in a trade war that triggered a shake-up in global financial markets.
