Former US President Donald Trump voiced his opinion on Wednesday regarding an Arizona law dating back to 1864, which virtually bans all abortions. In Arizona, the historic law from 1864 prevails over a more recent statute enacted in 2022, which restricts abortion after 15 weeks. The law permits abortions solely in cases where the mother's life is at risk, without provisions for instances of rape or incest. The former President, irrespective of his apprehensions of the law`s severity, had always continued to accentuate his consent for the rejoinder of Roe v. Wade (1973) by the Supreme Court in 2022, which therefore cancelled the abortion rights guaranteed under the constitution. Dig deeper

As Amit R Sharma's period sports drama Maidaan, starring Ajay Devgn in the lead role, releases in cinemas, it's run into legal trouble. As per a News18 report, a Karnataka-based writer has alleged that the film produced by Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios is plagiarised from his script on the life of India's former football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. Mysore court has thus put a stay on the film's release. Anil Kumar, the writer based out of Mysore, took to LinkedIn and shared his side of the story. He wrote, “In 2010, I started writing the story and in 2018, I posted a poster about this, and I got in contact with ad director Sukhdas Suryavanshi through my LinkedIn post. He called me to Bombay (Mumbai) and asked me to get the script. I have the whole chat history. He told me that he’d make me meet Aamir Khan, but I couldn’t meet him for certain reasons. I gave him the story and registered the same with the Screen writers Association.” Dig deeper
