Link Roundups & LinkDumps

Quick Links: Jan. 11

Today’s links talk about abortion rights, the GOP’s attacks on governing, unions, and alternatives to animal testing.

  1. Washington Post: House Republicans form committee to investigate the government – This is the Insurrectionist Caucus’ little pet project to get even for Donald Trump not getting elected in 2020 and for people daring to investigate Trump’s many crimes.
  2. AP: GOP opens long-promised investigation into Biden family – Here’s another Insurrectionist Caucus attack against the government. It’s basically Benghazi, but for Biden. 🙄
  3. Reuters: U.S. Supreme Court considers narrowing federal protections for unions – Ah, yes, exactly what we needed. Weaker unions.
  4. Wired: The US Just Greenlit High-Tech Alternatives to Animal Testing – “Lab animals have long borne the brunt of drug safety trials. A new law allows drugmakers to use miniature tissue models, or organs-on-chips, instead.”
  5. Politico: Next frontier in the abortion wars: Your local CVS – These people will not be happy until all women are again imprisoned in kitchens, subject to every whim of some man, and doing nothing but gruntin’ out babies and cleaning house.
