MercatorNet: US Supreme Court extends abortion rights - MercatorNet

The five largest stadiums in England could fit everyone living in Iceland, with a few to spare. Yet its national soccer team has just thrashed England's fabled side in a 2-1 victory in the Euro 2016 tournament. The game is being described as the biggest humiliation in history for English soccer -- worse than when they lost to the United States in 1950. 
It's a remarkable achievement for a plucky country which was so battered by the 2008 global financial crisis that 97 percent of the banking sector collapsed in just three days. Half of the country's businesses were technically bankrupt. Happily Iceland has bounced back, bruised but brave. As Walter Pless suggests below in his comment on the game, fairy tales can come true -- if you work hard. 
The other big story today is a sweeping affirmation of abortion rights by the US Supreme Court. Denise M. Burke writes that the decision will permit shoddy abortion clinics "to remain in business without meaningful regulation or oversight". it's a must-read.
