Abortion became a topic in the debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for the first time Wednesday night when moderator Chris Wallace focused on access to “late-term” procedures.
“Well, I think it’s terrible,” Trump said. “If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.
“And, honestly, nobody has business doing what I just said, doing that, as late as one or two or three or four days prior to birth,” he said. “Nobody has that."
Abortion is one of the most polarizing social issues in America. A May 2016 Gallop poll showed that 29 percent of respondents believed it should be legal under any circumstances, 50 percent only under certain circumstances, and 19 percent illegal in all circumstances. Only 2 percent of those surveyed had no opinion.

"Right now we see them very focused on trying to establish their caliphate, the Khorasan caliphate, inside Afghanistan," General John Nicholson said in an exclusive interview with NBC News.
The push is "principally a non-Afghan movement," Nicholson said.
According to Nicholson, the U.S. has seen foreign fighters, particularly Uzbeks from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, joining the Islamic State Khorasan, or IS-K. The U.S. also sees many Pakistani Pashtun from the Pakistani Taliban who joined IS-K moving into Afghanistan to fight, he said.

An adult film performer came forward Saturday alleging Donald Trump kissed her without permission 10 years ago and offered her money and the use of his private jet, becoming the 11th woman to accuse the Republican presidential candidate of sexual misconduct since the leaked footage of Trump making inappropriate comments.
Jessica Drake appeared with prominent attorney Gloria Allred, who warned Trump at the start of a press conference that if he sued all of the accusers as he pledged hours earlier, the women involved would have the option to file cross complaints.
"Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Trump," Allred said. "If you sue the accusers, the lawyers who represent these woman will have the opportunity to depose you."
Drake who worked for Wicked Pictures as an adult performer and director, accused Trump of grabbing her and kissing her without permission in a California hotel room in 2006.
"This story is totally false and ridiculous," Trump's campaign said.
