I know we’re supposed to be excited about the #Infrastructure agreement in the Senate, but I can’t help but think the #GOP succeeded in delaying and slicing it down to the bone.

We @Catholic4Choice welcome @JoeBiden as the first prochoice Catholic president & call on him to protect & expand abortion rights in the first days of his presidency. President Biden frequently connects his care for the poor, the sick & the vulnerable to his Catholic faith.(1/10)
As a longtime champion of women’s rights and the rights of marginalized people, @JoeBiden surely understands that policies like the #GlobalGagRule, the #HydeAmendment & the #HelmsAmendment inflict disproportionate suffering on the poor, the sick and the powerless. (2/10)
@JoeBiden has dissented from Catholic teaching on issues related to marriage equality, transgender rights and contraception because he realizes that the church’s teachings on these topics do not reflect the church’s greater call to justice, equality and human dignity. (3/10)

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This part is called: Protecting Women’s Rights
Only one party has a specific plan to ensure the rights of women, over half our population, is codified in law. This plan includes finally passing the #ERA 1/8 #ERANow
#Democrats will fight to guarantee equal rights for women, including by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment and at long last enshrining gender equality in the U.S. Constitution. 2/8 #DemPartyPlatform #ERA #ERANOW
#Democrats will take aggressive action to end pay inequality, including by increasing penalties against companies that discriminate against women and passing the Paycheck Fairness Act. 3/8 #DemPartyPlatform #EqualPay

Last week, colleagues @Guttmacher and I put forward 9 key actions that #Congress should take to support sexual and reproductive rights during the #COVID19Pandemic. As they work on a fourth relief package, here's a reminder of what they should do:…
1) Treat sexual and reproductive health care as the essential care it is. This includes ensuring that patients may continue to travel for reproductive health care even under any measures that restrict most commerce and travel. More on that here:…
2) Protect and expand access to comprehensive health insurance coverage, including by supporting Medicaid and expanding ACA marketplace coverage:…

@charliekirk11 You are mistaking #PlannedParenthoodVotes, part of a legal #PAC (#PoliticalActionCommittee) with #PlannedParenthood which uses its federal funding within highly restrictive Federal rules such as the #HydeAmendment which bans federal funding for abortions.…
@charliekirk11 #PlannedParenthood's super #PAC, #PlannedParenthoodVotes, kicked off a $45 million electoral program targeted toward battleground states for the 2020 election. That's eight times what it spent during the 2018 midterms.…
@charliekirk11 #Trump flew to #Afghanistan for his #Thanksgiving dinner.
He probably took the turkey he didn't pardon so they wouldn't have to spend extra money to feed him.
Speaking of govt. funding causing the death of children, read what the U.S. military has done throughout its history.

So @JoeBiden continues to flip stances he's held for 40+ years.
Today it was the #deathpenalty.
As with the #HydeAmendment, I'm not objecting--I'm against Hyde & against the death penalty, so I welcome these 180 shifts in policy.
But why no headline for such a major shift?
#Biden has been one of the staunchest voices for the death penalty for decades. In his 1994 Crime Bill, Biden expanded the #deathpenalty with Title VI, the Federal Death Penalty Act, creating 60 new death penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes.
Obama favored expanding the #deathpenalty to include executing child rapists and in 2008 talked about it while campaigning.
Obama didn't soften his position until 2014 & never ceased support for the death penalty. Biden shared that view…

Here's @ZerlinaMaxwell lying about Bernie Sanders (who voted against the Hyde Ammendment in 1993)

And a day later, completely giving Joe Biden a pass for supporting the #HydeAmendment up until yesterday.

This is how paid Shareblue shills bare their asses
David Brock's infamous "Stop Sanders" astroturf army has paid Zerlina's SiriusXM channel since 2017
Here is the cursed Sanders post, ratioed with receipts, the majority of which she chose to deflect, and never once apologized

I’m glad to see people talking about the need to repeal the #HydeAmendment & its effect on low-income folks especially WOC, QTPOC and more.. Lets also acknowledge why it even exists.. There has always been attempts to attack & regulate our bodies. This isn’t new #BeBoldEndHyde
The systems of White supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny have always tried to regulate the bodies of POC. From slavery, forced sterilization of Black & Brown people, and through Hyde, the sexual & Reproductive lives of POC have always been one of attacks, regulation & denial
So as you continue to raise awareness, know that POC have always been leading this fight.. Fighting for autonomous sexual lives free from shame & discrimination has always been the life of POC & low income folks. Center them

Hi all! We’ve gotten an increase in followers with everything going on in the fight for #reproductivejustice lately so we figured we would make a thread explaining who we are, the work that we do, why it’s all so important, and what YOU can do to help! #FundAbortionBuildPower
When folks say abortion funds aren’t new to abortion bans and anti-choice laws they’re right. CAF has been around for OVER 30 YEARS and we aren’t the only abortion fund either! Check out @AbortionFunds to see a list of our sister funds across the country that help to #fighttheban
For over 30 years, we have provided financial, logistical, and emotional support to folks needing assistance paying for an abortion. We boldly affirm a person's right to choose whether to parent or not and that right should not be determined bc of age, race, economic status, etc.
