Since 1973, the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade has secured federal protection for women’s reproductive rights. But as you’ve surely heard by now, it appears that the Supreme Court has voted to overturn the landmark ruling. The news, which was leaked by Politico before being confirmed by the court, means that in the coming weeks, it will be up to each of the 50 states to decide the legality of abortion on their own. By most analyses, 26 are already likely to outlaw the practice altogether. Immediately after this news hit on Monday night, the protests started. Designers, artists, and illustrators hunkered down to create their own visual responses to this assault on women’s rights. The images they shared online are disquieting, and sometimes, even grotesque. Many reference coat hanger abortions, and some feature copious amounts of blood. The works are not for the faint of heart, but neither are the times in which we live. See some of the first images of protest to the repeal of Roe v. Wade in our story here.

Uber’s wins and losses: What you need to know
Uber has announced earnings for the first quarter of 2022, and some of its metrics show a healthy return to normality after years of pandemic-induced disruption.
Those include a 35% year-over-year rise in gross bookings, to $26.4 billion, and a 136% jump in revenue, to $6.9 billion.
Yet despite the healthy growth in several categories, Uber had a Q1 2022 net loss of $5.9 billion. Most of that ($5.6 billion) was due to “aggregate unrealized losses” from Uber’s equity investments in delivery and ride share companies Grab, Aurora, and Didi.
Uber’s results will be a relief to investors’ ears after competitor Lyft saw its stock get pulverized yesterday. Lyft shares sank 25% after the company forecast less-that-expected Q2 2022 revenue.
