Tribal leaders say a landmark federal report on the legacy of Indigenous boarding schools is just a “starting point.” Paris Hilton, urging federal oversight, reveals she was sexually abused at a Utah teen treatment center. And with the Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says (and doesn’t say) about abortion.
