"Today, I rise to remind you that #SomeoneYouLove has had an #abortion.

I had to end a much-wanted pregnancy due to a diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy. There was no chance for the fetus to live, & if no action was taken, I would have died, also." — Sen. @rosemarybayer #MILeg 1/
@rosemarybayer “I’m grateful that Roe was in place so my doctor could do what they needed to do to protect my life and any future life I might create.”

— Sen. @rosemarybayer #SomeoneYouLove #AbortionIsHealthcare #MILeg 2/
"There are many other reasons to need an #abortion with devastating consequences without having that option — physical health, mental health, financial health — life itself can be at risk if we take this option away. "

So there are a few things that I want to cover today. It has to do with #Cuba🇨🇺 & the new #FamilyCodeLaw #CodigoDeLasFamilias #CodigoSi & why the Extreme Right Wing of the #CubanDissidents & #CubanExiles are against it #LGBTQRightsAreHumanRights #CubanConstitution #Socialism
So first what is #ElCodigoDeLasFamilias Or the #FamilyCodeInCuba. First we need a small lesson in #Socialism. #Marxism teaches that we need to use #Science & Common Sense to advance society.
Common sense says if you want a #Democracy to advance and flourish, you need to improve it with scientific precision. So, #Marxist countries make it very easy to have what is known in America as a #ConstitutionalConvention. Aka whenever they come up with something better for

Today, the #Hungarian government has issued a decree which will require doctors to present women requesting an #abortion with fetal vital signs before proceeding with the procedure. 1/4 (Thread) 👇
2/4 Though the decree will be hard to put into practice, this is a clear sign that the Orban government wants to appease the far right who have requested the change for some time.
3/4 Hungary’s abortion laws are considered liberal (can be administered until the 12th week) and this is the first time they have been changed since 1992. The Fundamental Law also states “life should be protected from the time of conception”

It is with sadness that I share with you all today that I will be closing my specialized family medicine practice in November.

I have been offered a #surgicalabortion role in BC!
Surgical abortion opportunities like this are limited (sometimes more so for family docs) and I knew that I had to take the leap. The Ottawa #OBGYN team was so dedicated to my surgical abortion learning and I want to maintain those skills.

I have training I want to use.
My clinic will continue to accept some referrals as outlined by faxes sent to clinics in the surrounding area. Patients can still self-refer for #contraception, #pap smears, and #abortion care.

As a Kansan, don't believe the spin in the media. #Kansas did NOT vote to enshrine #abortion as a state right. 🧵1/8
The Kansas constitution does not enumerate any rights regarding abortion. The Kansas Supreme Court decision ruling that it does was wholly dependent on Roe. The death of Roe should reverse the state ruling. 2/8
KS Pro-Life Lawmakers do not have their hands tied. They simply need to pass laws against abortion (a ban preferably) that will go to court. This leads to two options. 3/8

“...And I know nothing of it, except what I learn from her.”—James Webb

I was skimming through my old journals, and found a newspaper clipping I had inserted as a very-relevant bookmark, from 1984, the year I had my daughter.

On the one hand, it seems so insightful...
...written by a man, already a father.

On the other hand , it makes me think yet again, about our current divisiveness with #RoeVsWade, #abortion, and #WomensRights, and how men cannot possibly know what we women go through when we conceive—and why we must feel we are ready.
What follows was written by James Webb: During the Reagan Administration, Webb served as the nation's 1st Asst Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs from 1984-87. In 1987, he was Secretary of the Navy, the 1st Naval Academy graduate to serve as a civilian head of the Navy.

Interview I did yesterday. My only issue is the last sentence. It’s not a claim. It’s true. Women are already suffering under strict abortion bans in other states. Let me show you all what I’m talking about.…

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

1/ Ok. Serious question. Now that #abortion has been returned firmly to the status quo ante #RoeVsWade, to its status before the grave, urgent situation that mobilized #Catholics into a #ProLife mvmt, why was this article written?…
2/ And, I lied. That's not a serious question. I already know the answer. (I suspect @Pontifex does too.) I wrote it here 3yrs…

The answer is plain. "[D]ecades of binary cultural and political argument means that reversing Roe is no longer enough"
3/ We have been doing this so long, we simply don't know how to stop.

Don't believe me? Ask some serious people what the goal of the #ProLife mvmt is now. Their reply? I kid you not--

"A firm commitment to end #abortion"

Found this a while ago and saved it. Maybe you've seen it before.

I'm not pro-murdering babies.

I'm pro-Becky who found out at her 20 week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had developed without life sustaining organs.
I'm pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.
I'm pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child.

Βγαίνει σήμερα ένας πρώην Αρεοπαγίτης στα "ΝΕΑ" και γράφει ως guest ένα άρθρο που ξεκινάει με την φράση "ως γνωστόν το Ανώτατο Δικαστήριο των ΗΠΑ έκρινε ότι η άμβλωση είναι παράνομη". #fakenews #humanrights #abortion #justice
Όχι, δεν έκρινε καθόλου αυτό. Είναι θλιβερό ανώτατοι δικαστές (η ιδιότητα είναι ισόβια κατά το σύνταγμα) να σχολιάζουν δημόσια τις δικαστικές αποφάσεις ανώτατων δικαστηρίων και να μην τις έχουν διαβάσει καν ή να μην τις έχουν κατανοήσει αν τις έχουν διαβάσει.
Το άρθρο του κ. Λυμπερόπουλου ξεκινάει με το "καλημέρα" με κραυγαλέα ανακρίβεια. Ουδέποτε έκρινε το Ανώτατο Δικαστήριο των ΗΠΑ ότι η άμβλωση είναι παράνομη.

1/. “No one should be prosecuted for showing compassion. Not me. Not anyone”

Tmw, Justyna Wydrzyńsk will be in court in Poland facing 3 years in jail for providing abortion pills to a victim of domestic violence

@amnestyPL/@amnesty will be at the court…
2/. “The trial of Justyna Wydrzyńska comes at a time when the threat to abortion rights has been brought into sharp focus by the #SCOTUS decision to overturn #RoeVsWade. It’s a reminder that our rights can’t be taken for granted” @amnesty’s @AgnesCallamard
3/. The trial of Justyna Wydrzyńska
Is about to resume

“Anything less than all charges against being immediately dropped would set a dangerous precedent in Poland. It will also send a chilling message to other govts seeking to curtail the activities of abortion rights activists”

Henry de Bracton’s (#Bracton) compilation of the English (Canon) Law on #SUICIDE, in the original Latin and modern English. Bracton was a 13th century English Catholic Archdeacon, itinerant judge and legal commentator. His opus magnum, “De Legibus Et Consuetudinibus (1/26)
Anglilae”, is often cited by conservatives as representative of the origins of British and English common law. As you shall see, here, below, the work (and the contemporaneous law) was heavily influenced by Bracton’s Catholic faith. YOU be the judge of that!
The comments interposed by the editor, Woodbine, are indicated in {}. Note that Latin makes heavy use of the “subjunctive”, something long since disused in English and difficult to properly translate, other than in the third person: If the translation reads somewhat (3/26)

This Exec Order does several things to get around #SCOTUS #RoeVsWadeOverturned :
1.) Sec @HHSGov has 30 dys to submit to @POTUS a list of actions "to protect and expand access to #abortion care, including medication abortion"
2.) HRSA must expand "free or reduced cost- "
"...reproductive healthcare services through Title X clinics
3.) promote "awareness of & access to the full range of contraceptive services, as well as know-your-rights info"
4.) "ensure that all pregnant women & those experiencing pregnancy loss, such as miscarriages..."
"...and ectopic pregnancies -- receive the full protections for ER medical care afforded under the law"
5.) the Attorney General and the Counsel to the President are ordered to convene legal experts to provide pro bono aid to women & their health & contraception providers

Biden is going to sign an Executive Order today. We'll see what the final text says, but as an #abortion provider here's the context I can share:
HHS doesn't distribute or prescribe medication abortion. If federal employees need medication abortion, they go to abortion clinics.
As of today, states like Texas and Mississippi don't have #abortion clinics that are providing care, and telemedicine abortion is illegal. Unless the EO grants access to teleMAB to every person in every state, how will this actually get medication abortion to Texans?
EMTALA can't make anyone provide an #abortion or protect us from being arrested. This law requires stabilization in emergency medical situations - "emergencies" are defined broadly and allow for A LOT of subjectivity. The same gray areas I've spoken extensively about will remain.
