PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday that challenges a Maine restriction common across most of the U.S. that abortions be performed solely by physicians.The two groups were joined by four nurses and abortion provider Maine Family Planning in challenging the law that prevents advanced practice registered nurses, such as nurse practitioners and nurse midwives, from performing the procedure.Julie Jenkins, a Belfast nurse practitioner and a plaintiff, said the state's rule is "medically unjustified" and especially punitive in Maine's rural areas, where access to doctors who provide abortions can be scarce.

- Dear Abby: Vigilant moms can’t shy away from asking about gun safety
By Jeanne Phillips - Monday Jul 31, 2017
Dear Abby: I am a Yale-trained pediatric nurse with a post-master’s as a psychiatric nurse practitioner. I respectfully ask that you retract your answer to “First-Time Mom in New Jersey” (June 21). I’m concerned your response will encourage other mothers to buy into the incorrect assumption that it’s “impolite” to ask questions that ensure their child’s safety. You should have encouraged and empowered “First-Time Mom” to politely ask about the presence of weapons in the other parents’ homes, and if so, how they are stored. It’s important information for her to have.

Zack Snyder released a teaser video for his next project following his departure from “Justice League” — a short film titled “Snow Steam Iron.”The teaser seems to follow a young girl who gets wrapped up in a bad situation and ends up in jail. It comes just four days after Snyder tweeted to his followers, “What can you do with your talented friends & family, no money and a weekend?”He also tagged VERO in the video, a social media platform, on which he shared updates during his time on “Justice League.” According to Polygon, you will have to download the app to watch the short film when it is released — it is unclear when that will be. A representative for Snyder has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
