🇷🇺envoy to @UN #Nebenzia: US delegation did not attend #UNSC Arria meeting on 6 April and ignored requests from independent journalists to explain why documents on 🇺🇸-🇺🇦cooperation in the area of #biological research run counter to statements made by #US officials. 1/4
Moreover, #US delegation rejected proposal to create an effective #BiologicalWeaponsConvention verification mechanism and turned down the initiative to expand #BWC confidence measures to include reporting on military #biological activities held outside national territories. 2/4
Therefore, #US deliberately blocks attempts to strengthen the #BWC regime that should make it identify violations of #BiologicalWeaponsConvention more effectively. 3/4

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:

The "right approach" the writer appears to support 👇 is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

#OTD in 1864 the House passed the Wade-Davis Reconstruction bill. The House version of the bill was written by Rep. Henry Davis of Maryland. By this time Congress attempted to preemptively take control of post-war policy, creating a rift with President Lincoln.
Lincoln issued the "Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction" on December 8, 1863. It required only 10 percent of a seceding state's population to take an oath of loyalty before a new state government could be formed. These states would also be required to abolish slavery.
Radical Republicans in Congress felt Lincoln's plan was too lenient and began crafting legislation of their own to address the issue. They asserted that Confederate states were not states, but conquered territory. Lincoln maintained that those states never legally seceded.

L’Éducation nationale enjoint les parents d'élèves d'une école Steiner des Hautes-Pyrénées d'inscrire leurs enfants ailleurs. L'occasion de revenir sur la question du contrôle public des écoles "hors-contrat".
