    Forum U.S. Supreme Court to Take Up CA Law Regulating Anti-Abortion 'Pregnancy Crisis Centers' The U.S. Supreme Court agreed this week to hear a challenge to a California law that requires "pregnancy crisis centers" to notify patients about abortion and contraception subsidies. The religious groups bringing the challenge say that California's Reproductive FACT Act violates the first amendment by forcing the faith-based centers to provide information that conflicts with their pro-life ideology. Supporters of the FACT Act say the law is needed to rein in centers that provide suspect medical advice to pregnant women. We discuss the case and its implications.

    The Takeaway Trust in the Workplace A new Takeaway/Harris poll says 62% of Americans feel more comfortable speaking out against sexual harassment and assault because of the wave of recent accusations. But only 22% in that group say a reason they feel that way...is that they think their company would listen and be supportive. In other words, many people dont feel confident in their workplaces support on issues of harassment and assault. So what do Americans need to know about handling these situations at work?

    Radio Specials America Abroad: Made in America: Trade Policy in the Trump Era The US is having a vital discussion on trade deals and the loss of American manufacturing jobs. President Trump and other voices from the right have taken a protectionist stance, calling for the renegotiation of Nafta and other trade agreements. But protectionism hasn't always been a rallying cry of the right; at times, it has been a left wing issue. Opinions on trade don't fall neatly along partisan lines. Yet, US trade policy has been a deeply contentious issue since the founding of the republic. This episode, we'll look at how the US forms trade policies; how it uses international trade to influence other countries and promote stability; and how it balances domestic economic interests with foreign policy interests. We'll examine Nafta, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the World Trade Organization. And we'll talk about what could happen if the US takes a more isolationist approach in the global economy.

    1A with Joshua Johnson A Collection of Christian Artifacts Unlike Any Other You could say Washington, D.C. is also America's museum capital. And this week, a new collection opens to the public. Just south of the National Mall, the Museum of the Bible will welcome visitors to a $500 million facility that uses a mix of art, technology and lavish architecture to educate guests about of Christianitys sacred text. The museum is funded, in part, by the conservative Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, a crafts franchise that successfully sued the federal government over religious objections to contraceptives as outlined in the Affordable Care Act. A new book, "Bible Nation," outlines how the evangelical Greens grew their wealth and power alongside a collection of antiques, some of which are on display in the new museum.
