    (CNN)Jazlynn Damasco was about three months into a relationship with her now boyfriend when they started talking about the possibility of pregnancy.What they both wanted for their lives, what their boundaries were with contraception and what they would do if faced with an unintended pregnancy were all things the 21-year-old started talking about early and continues discussing with her partner.For many couples, those conversations are taking on a bigger importance, given the US Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and the federal protection to abortion access that came with it. Some people may feel that talking about sex, protection and unplanned pregnancy is more important now than ever, said Kristen Mark, a sex and relationships researcher and professor in family medicine and community health at the University of Minnesota Medical School's Institute for Sexual and Gender Health in Minneapolis. Women share how access to abortion impacted their lives -- whether they chose one or not"People need to understand that in many states their options may be limited practically overnight or, if not overnight, then within weeks or months,"...
    FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and that means troubling images and videos will be replayed, reviving raw memories of a dark day in our nation’s history. CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff spoke to some educators who offered tips on how parents and guardians should talk to children about what transpired on Jan. 6, 2021.

According to an Associated Press-NORC poll, 29% of Republicans see the attack as “not at all violent,” while 64% of all Americans describe the day as “very or extremely violent.” “It’s not troubling to me. People were expressing themselves,” one person told CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff on Wednesday. “Any form of aggression or violence, it’s no good,” another person said.

    Washington (CNN)The January 6 insurrection may be a year behind Rep. Jason Crow, but the Colorado Democrat -- and many of his colleagues -- insist it would be a grievous error for his party to downplay the attack."I just disagree with this notion that we shouldn't talk about this and that we shouldn't talk about what is at stake here and that this isn't important to people in their everyday lives," said Crow, a United States Army veteran who consoled his congressional colleagues as pro-Donald Trump rioters attempted to break into the House chamber. "It would be a massive mistake for us to discount this."As Democrats look ahead to what could be a challenging midterm election, the party -- from operatives in key states to top officials in Washington -- is publicly and privately gauging the political application of the violent insurrection and whether voters, many of whom are more concerned by pocketbook issues immediately impacting their daily lives, will set aside those frustrations in order to punish Republicans who have either aided Trump's anti-Democratic maneuvers or stood idly by...
    nadia_bormotova/Getty Images Woebot is an artificial intelligence-based tool that offers cognitive-behavioral therapy to users. I experimented with using the bot for two weeks because I'm unsatisfied with my therapist. I was in a good mood after talking to the bot every day.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. After months of searching for a therapist to cope with my anxiety, I found someone that accepted my health insurance. At first, I felt a sense of relief. But lately, I've been disappointed in the sessions, as my therapist keeps telling me to think positively rather than talking about one topic in depth. So in an attempt to find satisfying mental health treatment, I tried Woebot for two weeks. Woebot is an artificial intelligence-based tool that uses cognitive-behavioral therapy, a form of therapy that prompts you to change unhelpful thinking patterns.  Founded in 2017, Woebot is one of many mental health care apps that provides virtual therapy.  While Woebot doesn't claim to be a replacement for a real therapist, it may be especially useful in our present moment.

    The release of a shocking new novel following an elderly couple as they explore the idea of a suicide pact has prompted experts to warn there is an increased risk of the practice amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Should We Stay or Should We Go by Lionel Shriver, who lives in the UK, is set to be released next week and follows married couple Kay and Cyril, who are approaching their 80s and concerned about developing Alzheimers. Each of the chapters depicts 12 different alternative scenarios for what happens when the couple decide to take fatal doses of Seconal after concluding Britons  'aren't living longer - they're dying longer'.  Its release comes weeks after Matt Hancock asked for data on those with terminal conditions who have killed themselves, launching a new debate on legalising assisted suicide. Experts told FEMAIL the issue is at risk of growing, with psychological therapist Michael Padraig Acton saying: 'Geriatric suicide pacts could definitely be on the increase, especially in times of a pandemic.  Should We Stay or Should We Go by Lionel Shriver, who lives in the UK,...
    Can we hold the Senate in 2022? Can we expand our majority? Big questions. I love Daily Kos. I love the people who work here. I consider our writers some of the smartest people in the political space. And yet on our weekly podcast Daily Kos The Brief, we’ve been eager to feature experts from around the progressive world to discuss critical issues. That is to say, this is a Daily Kos podcast, but it’s not an ONLY Daily Kos podcast.  But today it will be, because I can see unequivocally that the Daily Kos Elections team is literally the smartest election-coverage team in the country. And so when we decided to talk about the Senate elections next year, it’s quite convenient knowing that the top experts reside in-house. And among them, Jeff Singer is an elections savant.  So join us this week, as we pick Jeff’s brain on next year’s Senate elections, and we further discuss why it is so important that we do so. (Hint: “Democratic Senate majority” and “rendering Joe Manchin less relevant” should feature prominently.)  The live show...
    AT 17 years old, David Challen understood the way his father treated his mother was “horrifically bad”. Back then, we didn’t know the term “coercive control”, nor did he realise his dad’s gaslighting was abuse. 8David Challen with members of Justice for Women protesting outside the Royal Courts of Justice, LondonCredit: PA:Press Association He said: “When they argued, he’d say, ‘You’re going mad, you’re making it up’. “I confronted my father multiple times but trying to argue with him was like trying to nail jelly to a wall.” The issue of women’s safety has become a national conversation since 33-year-old Sarah Everard disappeared as she walked to her home in Brixton, South London, on March 3. Not least because a male serving police officer has been charged with her kidnap and murder. David Challen knows more than most about the effect of men’s behaviour on women. In 2010, his mum, Sally, killed his dad, Richard, by beating him 20 times...

    I was reading a community diary story today that you really should read, if you haven’t already, about the writer’s experience taking the cognitive assessment test. I have had difficulty processing Donald Trump’s answer regarding this matter to Fox News in a way that I hadn’t really come to terms with until reading that diary and thinking about how it made me feel. I had my first MOCA test years after rehab recovering from a violent crime assault, and, unfortunately, since then for the past 25 years, I’ve had a version of this test given to me with decreasing regularity. The point of a cognitive test isn’t to “ace” it or prove how much of a smart person you are: The point is to track whether or not you are experiencing a negative trend in your ability to function, which can be caused by time, disability, or even medication. As the president bragged about his test results, one question kept popping up: Why brag? This test is easy. Only once, due to a bad drug interaction, did I ever suffer difficulties. It was that one time, though, that...

    Insider While non-Black Latinx are impacted by white supremacy, we can still perpetuate anti-Blackness. Understanding and combating anti-Blackness within ourselves and our communities is our duty, and it starts at home. Pushing back against colorism and the "good immigrant" narrative, as well as uplifting Black voices, are all important starting points. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The fight against racism in the United States is often framed as a battle between two sides. White and non-white. Oppressor and oppressed.   It's a myth I bought into for much of my life. As a non-Black Peruvian who grew up in a predominantly white and non-Black Latinx suburb of Southern California, I believed that white people were the only ones who could be racist, while people of color stood united in our oppression.  But when 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in 2012, my understanding of this false alliance crumbled.  Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, is a non-Black Latino of Peruvian descent. He is joined by Philando Castile's killer, Jeronimo Yanez, a non-Black Latino of Mexican descent. Before Sandra Bland...
