COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Female lawmakers have been speaking out about being raped as Republican-dominated state legislatures seek strict abortion bans. Some of the lawmakers' recounts mark the first time they've spoken publicly about the assault.

The #MeToo movement and a record number of elected women last year have empowered more women to detail their experiences to legislatures.
CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago-area hospital didn't alert authorities for weeks after determining that a bloodied woman who arrived with a gravely ill newborn had not just given birth to the baby boy, as she claimed.

Chicago police say she cut Ochoa-Lopez's baby out of her womb on April 23.
