wanted to close the facilitywhich opened in 2002 in the wake of the 9/11 terror attackssince the beginning of his presidency arguing that it is expensive ineffective and is used in propaganda to recruit extremists an argument he reiterated on Tuesday Since Obama took office he’s whittled the number of prisoners held there from 242 to 91 About a third of those remaining have been cleared for transfer by high-level officials but Congress has imposed restrictions on transferring prisoners to the US “Its not just about dealing with the current group of detainees” Obama said Tuesday “This is about closing a chapter in our history” Though the White House is moving forward with its plan to shutter the prison Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday he was unsure of whether Congress would approve it ” Weve seen many members of Congress express their opposition to considering the kinds of necessary steps to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay” Earnest told reporters on Monday “That political opposition stands in stark contrast to the best advice that the Commander-in-Chief receives from our military” Obama could use his executive authority to transfer the remaining prisoners out of the facility but the White House has signaled it wants to work with Congress “The President has said on a number of occasions that working with Congress to succeed in closing the prison at

What does your experience filming the M23 rebellion in 2012 tell you about whats in store for Congo Well it tells me that the major issue facing Congo is still internal corruption And after that you still have armed groups and you still have infrastructure and education issues all of which combine to make an impossible scenario My suspicion is that there will be another eastern conflict and the government simply wont be able to get the elections going which will give Kabila enough time to figure out what to do with his hundreds of different businesses and how to avoid criminal charges while holding onto the billions of dollars hes stolen So what do we need for Congo to find peace We need the government to no longer be corrupt and we need armed groups to go away Then we need to build infrastructure and make it so people dont die from an infected tooth or a mosquito bite Congo needs to get to that place but the real lynchpin is that the Congolese need to do it themselves If we go

Kasich has put the US one step closer to overturning Roe v Wade On Dec 13 he signed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy with no exceptions for victims of rape or incest At the same time Kasich vetoed a bill that would have banned abortions after six weeks and been a near wholesale ban on the procedure since most women dont even know theyre pregnant at that stage The six-week ban Kasich said was "clearly contrary to the Supreme Court of the United States current rulings on abortion" The 20-week ban is of course also contrary to the Supreme Courts current rulings on abortion But for Kasich the political popularity of 20-week bans overrides their illegality And importantly a 20-week ban may be the vehicle abortion opponents need to impinge upon or totally end American womens access to safe legal abortion In the 1973 Roe v Wade decision the Supreme Court held that in regulating abortion states have an obligation to balance the interests of womens health and rights with the interest in preserving and protecting potential life They outlined a framework within which abortion had to be generally legal in the first trimester but could be restricted in the second (between 13 and 27 weeks of pregnancy) so long as "the regulation reasonably relates to the preservation and protection of maternal health" The real turning point though was viability the "compelling" moment when a state "may go so far as to proscribe abortion during that period except when it is necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother" the court held That trimester framework was largely done away with in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v Casey (it was too rigid the court seemed to think and not reflective of changing medical realities) While Casey gave states greater leeway to limit abortion access the viability standard held with the court affirming "a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion before fetal viability and to obtain it without undue interference from the State" The majority of the Justices said the state could restrict abortion access previability but only with laws that did not place an "undue burden" on women seeking the procedure Exactly what constitutes an "undue burden" remains vague defined in Casey only as placing a “substantial obstacle” in front of a woman who wants to end her pregnancy Requiring a woman to get her husbands permission for abortion fits the bill but requiring a teenager to get her parents permission does not States can enact health and safety regulations; they can encourage pregnant women to carry their pregnancies to term; and a later Supreme Court case Gonzales v Carhart even held that the federal government could ban a specific later-term abortion procedure even though according to Casey "a State may not prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision to terminate her pregnancy before viability" A case from last term Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt sought to clarify the “undue burden” standard holding that a Texas law passed under the guise of promoting women’s health but with no actual relationship to it that instead was purposed primarily to make abortions harder to get did place an undue burden on pre-viability abortion access and was deemed unconstitutional But even though Texas also has a 20-week abortion ban that law wasn’t in front of the court A 20-week ban prohibits women from making the ultimate decision to terminate a pregnancy before viability No baby born at 20 weeks or earlier has ever survived And no one including proponents of this bill argues that a 20-week-old fetus is viable Revealingly Ohio law already requires that doctors performing abortions after 20 weeks determine that the fetus isnt viable so this new bill is explicitly a ban on pre-viability abortions This latest ban doesnt contain an exception for rape or incest survivors It only allows abortions after 20 weeks if a woman is facing a life-threatening medical emergency that will either kill her or cause "substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function" Reversible impairment or destruction of bodily function that isnt "major" doesnt count The Ohio legislature specifically says that impairment of a womans mental health does not qualify as a health exception But viability is a difficult concept at least when you’re trying to legislate it There is no easily identifiable day or hour or minute when the fetus distinctly crosses the bridge to "viable" and is now guaranteed to live outside the womb Reproduction is complicated and messy and unpredictable and every pregnancy like every fetus and every baby is different At 22 weeks the vast majority of premature babies more than three of every four perish But that means nearly a quarter survive (although always with extreme medical interventions and they often live with serious health complications) In many states "viability" is loosely drawn at 24 weeks This uncertainty and profound discomfort that comes from not knowing when exactly a fetus might survive is why the savvier anti-abortion activists and now Governor Kasich have latched on to later procedures trying to cast them as both common and morally indefensible Thats not true only about 1% of abortions happen after 20 weeks and women who have late abortions like women who have early ones have compelling reasons to end their pregnancies (from "I do not want to be pregnant" to "This will destroy my future plans" to "This could kill me") but bans on late abortion are much more popular than banning abortion fully A full ban on abortion is the goal of every pro-life organization in the country But they start by encroaching on womens rights and abortion access in ways that most Americans find acceptable This is craven and exploitative The anti-abortion movement is intentionally opaque about their actual goal ban all abortions with no exceptions for rape incest or a pregnant woman’s health and pro-life leaders instead insist that they’re worried about things like women’s health or fetal pain They also send the message that whether or not women have the fundamental right to decide what happens to our own bodies should be decided by majority rule A foundational American value is that basic rights aren’t up for a vote; a “pro-life” value is that women’s most basic rights can be sold out in the voting booth And in shifting the conversation about abortion away from fundamental rights the anti-abortion movement obscures the complex realities of reproduction While abortions after the 20-week mark are rare the women who have them are disproportionately in vulnerable situations: young poor depressed addicted victims of domestic violence Many are women who have just gotten very bad news about a very wanted pregnancy that theres a problem with the fetus or that continuing the pregnancy threatens the pregnant womens health or life Many are women who are extremely poor and simply couldnt get together the money the childcare and the time off of work earlier on Many are young and perhaps didnt know they were pregnant or spent weeks in denial and fear Women whose lives have been badly disrupted women who were raped or who recently lost a job or a partner are also more likely to have later abortions And most women who have later abortions would like to have had earlier procedures but a series of laws pushed by "pro-life" activists and politicians stand in the way like restrictions on insurance coverage of abortion and Medicaid funding restrictions that shutter clinics and make travel farther and more expensive The real goal of this law is obvious: its not to make women healthier or safer; its to push the question to the Supreme Court Viability is the current standard and so this law unconstitutional But because abortions after 20 weeks are so politically unpopular and because the Supreme Court may be about to be stacked with several staunch right-wing judges under a Trump presidency abortion-rights advocates worry that a ban like Ohios could be the perfect mechanism to either crack the foundation of Roe or knock it down totally The six-week ban that Kasich rejected was an easy target so clearly unconstitutional and so politically unpopular it would never even make it to the Court for evaluation A 20-week ban though might just squeak onto the Courts docket And that puts pro-choicers in a bind: Challenge the law and you risk it going up the legal chain with a disastrous result; ignore it and women in Ohio and women in many other states with 20-week abortions bans suffer The Ohio ban also offers a scary look at whats to come under an anti-abortion administration It punishes doctors who perform abortions after 20 weeks with time in prison It claims that fetuses feel pain at 20 weeks gestationa largely unsupported claim about as reliable as the assertion that climate change isnt real And it belies a total disregard for womens health and the trauma that rape and incest victims have survived It would be easy to look at Kasichs rejection of the six-week ban and his signing of the 20-week one as a sign of his political moderation and reasonableness Dont be fooled The six-week ban was outrageous but obviously wouldnt hold up making it an obnoxious waste of time and an insult to women but not the real threat The 20-week ban is unconstitutional too but its also a stealth force for undermining Roe and that makes it so much more dangerous Contact us at [email protected] IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s
