Vice President Kamala Harris is calling the Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos are considered children "outrageous." Last week's ruling said embryos created during in-vitro fertilization are "extra uterine children," and in Alabama are legally protected like any other child. On X Wednesday, Harris said the ruling was already "robbing women of the freedom to decide when and how to build a family."        James Biden is claiming his brother, President Joe Biden was never involved in any of his financial deals. The president's brother sat down for an hours-long interview with lawmakers on Wednesday as part of the Republican-led impeachment inquiry into the president. He denied claims that President Biden used his official positions to profit from his family's overseas business ventures.        United is planning to resume a daily flight from Newark, New Jersey to Tel Aviv, Israel. It marks the first time since October, when passenger and cargo services were suspended following the attack by Hamas militants on southern Israel. Initial flights on March 2nd and 4th will stop in Munich, with the goal to begin nonstop daily service starting March 6th. The airline will become the first American carrier to resume direct service.       Boeing is replacing the head of its 737 Max program. The company announced Wednesday that Ed Clark is leaving Boeing after nearly two decades. The 737-9 Max jet has been under scrutiny since a door plug blew out during an Alaska Airlines flight last month.        A Kentucky Bill would give people the ability to seek legal action against those that feel religiously persecuted. Members of the Kentucky LGBTQ plus community took to state congress to speak out against the bill in what they believe will strip away their rights. The bill was created in response to an incident in 2018 when a Muslim woman was forced to take off her hijab after being arrested.        The trial in the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur is being pushed back to November. The suspect, Dwayne "Keefe D" Davis, is accused of organizing the 1996 murder and recently hired a new lawyer. The new attorney asked the judge for more time to review all of the discovery materials involved with Davis' case.
