I will do a point-by-point thread on this when I have time later today, but for now I’d like to emphasize that you SHOULD NOT TAKE MEDICAL ADVICE FROM THE FEDERALIST. This article is illogical word salad quackery, and it’s dangerous. #ectopicpregnancy #abortion
1/ Ok, here's my [very lengthy] full response to this. It’s hard to even know where to start with this article, because so much of it is so, so wrong. The first and most important thing to note is that you should NOT get your medical advice from the Federalist.
2/ It also needs to be said that if you have had an ectopic pregnancy and followed medical advice to have it treated, you did the thing that reduced your risk of dying. Go you! #ectopicpregnancy

I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

Hurt feelings and offense-taking play a big role in shutting down, censoring, and misdirecting conversations about just about everything to do with women these days: #abortion rights, #periodstigma, and your basic uterus-having, sex-based anything and everything.
The idea seems to be that rather than make some people uncomfortable or offend them by reminding them of what their bodies are not, it's kinder for women to fudge the truth, censor the ways we speak about the realities of our lives, or, better yet, be quiet.
Here's the thing, though.

Women, doesn't it hurt and offend us when our inescapable reality -- being female and all that entails -- is dismissed and womanhood is reduced to an identity or a feeling?

AMERICAN YIDIOTS
By Lynne Lechter
Jews used to be considered smart, and having a Yiddshe kopf was a compliment.
No more. There's a new type of Jew on the loose in America: the 'Yidiot." 1)
#AmericanJews #Yidiot #JewHate #Antisemitism #JEXODUS #JEXIT
A Yidiot accepts anti-Semitic, riot-inciting Al Sharpton’s attendance at a New York City memorial rally for the Jews killed in Pittsburgh but is offended at President Trump’s appearance in Pittsburgh to honor them. 2) #Sharpton #Pittsburgh #Trump
A Yidiot is silent when Farrakhan trashes Jews as “termites,” rants "Death 2 America, Death 2 Israel from Iran," is feted in public w/past presidents Clinton & Obama, & is sought after for advice from 17 members of the Congressional Black Caucus, but believes POTUS is antisemitic

Update on fetal stem cells research. A thread 👇

"Starting late September, scientists applying for National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants will need to use the strictly limited space in their applications to describe how the fetal tissue will be obtained...

1/
...used, and disposed of, and to justify their need for it, explaining why alternatives such as adult tissue won't work. Then, if NIH greenlights a research proposal for funding, it will need to win approval from a new ethics advisory board."

2/
So no, fetal stem cells research won't be halted completely like the media is saying. Also, grant applications in the NIH pipeline before 25 September won't be affected at all by the new guidelines.

For the prolife movement I'd say it's only a half victory.

#ClimateAlarmists ignore the fact that all of their propaganda efforts to scare people into submitting to expensive CO2 reduction schemes are having less than no restraining effect on the one & a half degrees of #GlobalWarming over the last two centuries.
vox.com/2015/5/15/8612…
Nothing being done now is having any effect on reducing CO2. We could help Nature do it the old fashioned way by planting a trillion trees. But that takes time.
#ClimateAlarmists prefer preventing the poorest people from trying to stay alive during winter.

Scientists are proving that active geothermal sources around the globe are causing most of the glacier melting & ocean warming. And more of that heat should be harnessed to benefit humanity, as has been done throughout human history.

The “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” in the US is being made an absolute mockery of by #abortion supporters, #jihad supporters, #racism supporters, perpetrators of violence against #LGBT people, people who demand services from businesses who have…
…legal right to refuse service, those who deface religious buildings, the religious who abuse their religious teachings to control their population with violence, sexual abuse, et cetera, the nonreligious who impose their views on the religious because they see themselves as…
…”superior,” and many other people.

I believe you have a right to say your piece and to try to elect people who agree with you. But I do not believe much of these to be liberating.

"With close to 100 million Americans living at or near the #poverty level, most of them women, are any of the Democratic candidates addressing the crisis?"

My latest investigation for @damemagazine. I hope you will read and share this important story.
damemagazine.com/2019/06/17/we-…
In my month-long investigation for @damemagazine, I spoke with women from every age and racial/ethnic group--poverty is female.

"One in 17 women lived in extreme poverty last year, living on $1.90 a day--in the U.S., not a developing country."

damemagazine.com/2019/06/17/we-…
"While the media usually presents single mothers as the face of poverty, over half of all poor adult women—54 percent—are single and childless."

One of the surprising statistics I uncovered during this investigation on women and poverty.

Stunningly damning piece with some data about #Biden even I was unaware of. Marcotte makes some critical points here about Biden and his birth control history.
1/
It's not just one gaffe: Joe Biden can't be counted on to fight for reproductive rights salon.com/2019/06/14/its…
The most crucial point in Marcotte's exegesis is that #Biden has always stood up for right wing Catholics and evangelicals over women on repro rights and she outlines specific instances including as VP that are quite disturbing.
2/
And it IS telling that the small percentage of pro-#Biden poll numbers among women are all post-menopausal age. Which is cringeworthy when you think about it. Choice has to be protected for all women and girls. So as Marcotte notes, the nominee must be all in for women.

I've been thinking about this terrible, brutal thing being done to women who want an #abortion in #Missouri. It's really unconscionable to treat women and girls this way.
1/
Everyone who wants an abortion --NO exceptions, so that includes rape victims like I was, girls who have been incested, women whose birth control failed, women who already have more kids than they can handle--has to have this vaginal exam first, before they can be approved.
2/
An internal exam. With a speculum AND fingers.

Let me tell you that this is awful.
Every woman hates these exams.
It's a violation.
And it's one thing when your doctor has to check for fibroids or do a PAP test. But this is just to humiliate and demean and violate.

The #progressive #policy #paradox: a thread for the day that’s in it

Or: why #popular #power comes from below

In honour of our “#left and progressive unity” friends and GP voters
Full disclosure: I was once in the Green Party.

In another century, I hasten to add.

I represented the Irish party at the European Federation of GPs and edited what we laughingly called its theoretical journal.
I also spent a year in the French party and, more interestingly, on the far left of the German party. I thought the Irish party had the potential to become a party of and for #SocialMovements. I found I was wrong, and left.

Today while doing #prolife activism I met a couple, whom I asked what they thought about #abortion. The man answered they were just talking about it. She is 22 weeks pregnant, and their OB-GYN is recommending they abort in the next two weeks. I asked why. 1/
She said their baby has enlarged kidneys. I asked, “Bilateral hydronephrosis?” Shocked, she said, “Yes! How did you know?” I explained that my second child had been diagnosed with that in utero, that he still had it at birth and then at 9 months, it just vanished. 2/
She told me how they had tried for five years to conceive this child, that she felt in her gut that he was okay, that the doctor is making them feel hopeless and pressured. I asked if she had had a second or third opinion. She said no. I gave them resources to go about this. 3/
