THE PANIC WOMB

President-elect Trump hasn’t said he’s anti-contraception, but some women aren’t waiting to find out

EACH NOVEMBER, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy runs a social media campaign to make people more comfortable talking about birth control. The hashtag: #ThxBirthControl. This year, however, #ThxBirthControl had even more significance for many women. In the wake of the election of Donald Trump, some health advocates and insurance experts warned women to prepare for the possibility that they may lose free access to birth control, along with other health care services, after Trump is sworn in this January.

About Newsweek International

THE ROBOT ECONOMY Next time you stop for gas at a self-serve pump, say hello to the robot in front of you. Its life story can tell you a lot about the robot economy roaring toward us like an EF5 tornado on the prairie. Yeah, your automated gas pump killed a lot of jobs over the years, but its biography might give you hope that the coming wave of automation driven by artificial intelligence (AI) will turn out better for almost all of us than a lot of people seem to think.
