▪ Texas lawmakers have advanced a bill that would allow doctors to lie to pregnant women about fetal abnormalities if they feel the truth might lead to an abortion.

▪ A drive-in movie theater in Alabama has banned Beauty and the Beast over reports that one of the PG-rated Disney film’s characters is briefly revealed to be gay. The owner of the Henagar Drive-in said, “If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me, then we have no business showing it.” ■
