When you arrive at your 9am panel to discover it's led by @lizzwinstead! #NN19 @Netroots_Nation
Lizz unpacks the cowardly "safe, legal and rare" formulation: "Whose bodies do we compromise on?" #nn19
When you ask people if they would support a loved one who wants to get an abortion, the answer is overwhelmingly yes - the "should abortion be legal" construct subtracts people from the equation. - @jgonzalez_rojas #nn19

I know she says this is just her personal view, and that she is a staunch defender of abortion rights. But legit I just will never be able to trust anyone who feels this way. #AbortionRights #cdnpoli
If anyone needs a source, here is an archived article:…
When the Ghomeshi survivours came forward she tweeted: "I think Jian is wonderful. Likely TMI for an old fogey like me, but his private life is none of our beeswax" and "I have known Jian and something at work here doesn't make sense. Innocent until proven guilty."

Fuck. Just saw a tweet reminding us that Alabama is making abortion a felony & felons can’t vote so soon enough massive amount of people, mostly poor & black women, will be labeled as felons & unable to vote. Further expansion of the prison industrial complex & the new Jim Crow.
We often think of the PIC as targeting men of color, particularly black men, but these new laws in states with large poor black populations are clearly intended to disenfranchise & legally enslave more black people.
THIS is why we need coalitional thinking. THIS is why we need a #reproductivejustice framework that sees prison abolition & abortion rights & voting laws as all interconnected. Reproductive justice & racial justice will always be inherent intertwined.

I've seen loads of people discussing the #Alabama #AbortionRights issue this morning, shocked that this could happen. As an anthropologist and (former) six-year resident of "lower Alabama" (FL panhandle), let me give you a bit of history.

I lived in Pensacola, FL, for six years, as a tenure-track (and then tenured) professor at the University of West Florida. I got a job offer there in summer of 2012.

As I started looking into the place that would be the new home for me, my husband, and our then-3-year-old daughter, this was the top news item:…

Hello & Happy Spring! (Thread) If you haven’t been on here til 1am EST, I’m going to unpack recently announced #opioid bill S-724 (named for John McCain). For reax check out threads by @erinbiba and @AnaMardoll (call @gillibrandNY ASAP to protest bill.) Onto the breakdown:
Sen. Gillibrand introduced this bill with a flip referral to dental work and a misunderstanding of the term “acute pain”. #AcutePain does not mean ‘severe’ in medical terms, it means pain lasting up to/less than 6mos. If you’ve ever had a gunshot wound,
been in/had a serious accident, needed extensive surgery, had #fibromyalgia #arthritis #endometriosis or #pelvicpain #backpain -just to name a few-you may know that sometimes one needs more than 7 days of pain meds.

The pressure is on to get in contact with our TDs for abortion legislation.
You don't have to know law. You don't have to speak eloquently. You don't have to know anything about the debate. What you need to know is what's important to you :: and that politician's work for you...
...that your TDs represent your views and values. How are they to know them if you don't tell them?
We know that opposition to abortion reform will absolutely be putting pressure on their TDs. We know that TDs want to keep their job.
Make them work for you.

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4314: Donald Trump, The Supreme Court, Abortion, and Punishment - #Nonverbal & #EmotionalIntelligence#BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #AbortionRights #Abortion #Punishment #SupremeCourt #RoevWade
1/ In the light of Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy's announcement of his retirement from the Supreme Court, the interview included here is profoundly important. In March 2016, Chris Matthews spoke with then-candidate Trump in a town hall type setting.
2/ One of the questions Mr. Matthews pressed Mr. Trump on was that of abortion - and specifically, because Trump believes abortions should be illegal - what was his view on the issue of punishment for women who undergo abortions?
