Pressure on ethics leads to first code of conduct
For the first time in its 234-year history, the Supreme Court announced Monday that it’s adopting a code of conduct − a response to a litany of recent controversies involving private jet travel and posh vacations accepted by some justices that polls suggest has undermined public faith in the nation’s highest court. The code, which the court said was agreed to by all nine members, encourages a justice to recuse from a case if they have “a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party,” and includes guidance about accepting payment for travel and connections with political parties or groups involved in cases before the court, among other things. But the code itself included no enforcement mechanism – an omission the court’s critics immediately focused on. 📜
Biden calls for sparing Gaza hospitals crippled by fighting
Public health officials say hospitals in Gaza City are in peril amid a fuel shortage that’s rendered them inoperable as escalating combat between Israeli ground forces and militants approaches the facilities. President Joe Biden told reporters Monday the hospitals “must be protected,” and he expressed a desire for “less intrusive action” from the Israeli military in its battle against Hamas. At Al Shifa Hospital, the largest medical facility in Gaza, Israeli ground forces are closing in as more than 3,500 staffers, patients and sheltering civilians remain inside. Israeli military officials say several hospitals are housing Hamas militants, either inside the facilities or in tunnels beneath them. Hamas officials denied the claims. 👉

Why can’t women get better care for menopause, heart attacks?
The first lady wants some answers. Women aren’t getting the care they need when it comes to menopause, heart attacks and other health issues, according to the Biden administration. Now, first lady Jill Biden is giving the administration 45 days to amp up efforts to change that. The goal is to try and correct the fact that women have been understudied and underrepresented in health research – despite making up more than half the population. “If you ask any woman in America about her health care, she probably has a story to tell,” Biden said Monday. The effort will prioritize areas of research where additional investments could make a big difference. 🩺
