[THREAD] With former President #Trump's appointees appearing set to overturn abortion rights, @POTUS on Wednesday called Trump's far-right base "the most extreme political organization" in recent American history.

#uspolitics #RoeVWade #RoeOverturned #RoeVsWade #MAGA
If the @GOP appointees overturn that case, it could effectively outlaw abortion in more than a dozen states immediately, with another dozen or so states likely to follow.

#uspolitics #RoeVWade #RoeOverturned #RoeVsWade
It could potentially open the door for right-wing crackdowns in other areas too such as #LGBTQ rights.

[THREAD] Black and Native babies, as well as their mothers, experience worse health outcomes than their white counterparts in #NorthCarolina.

Here’s how @ncatsuaggies, the nation’s largest #HBCU, is making a difference.

#healthcare #BlackLivesMatter cardinalpine.com/story/ncs-bigg…
Encouraging more parents to breastfeed in the first few days and months of a child’s life can help enormously, with research showing there’s a lifetime of health benefits for both moms and babies.

#northcarolina cardinalpine.com/story/ncs-bigg…
But less than 2% of certified lactation consultants are Black even though research shows people respond best to health messages from those of similar backgrounds.

If it's Monday, then it's time for us to test your #NorthCarolina knowledge. Let us know in the replies where this is! 🔎

Ok, first clue: You can see the ocean in the background, so no surprise here that this is on our coast. These live oaks flank what was a Confederate fort during the Civil War erected to fortify one of the two locations where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic.
Next clue: You can visit this historic site year-round, but the warm months have the added bonus of being near six miles of state-owned beach with no development outside a visitor center and boardwalk.

House Democrats are hard at work selling out American STEM grads by proposing amendments to the COMPETES Act:

- Staple green card to diplomas of children of H1Bs who major in STEM
- Staple green cards to master's degree STEM grads
- Staple green cards to PhDs in medicine
If you're a #STEM grad who can't find a job due to taxpayer subsidized foreign STEM workers, you can thank these Congress members for supporting expansions to @BarackObama's illegal STEM OPT program:

@RepDeborahRoss
@KathyManningNC
@CongressmanRaja
@RepBera
@RepScottPeters
@BarackObama @RepDeborahRoss @KathyManningNC @CongressmanRaja @RepBera @RepScottPeters And one more "staple green cards to their diplomas" amendment, from @RepBillFoster and @RepPressley.

This is the same as Bill Foster's HR5924 bill cosponsored by Deborah Ross, who never misses an opportunity to sell out her voters in #NorthCarolina.

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

Jaydn McNeill, high school senior wide receiver from Four Oaks #NorthCarolina is grateful to be alive. In January 2021 he developed respiratory & heart failure and was placed on life support including ECMO due to MISC from COVID. #TheySurvivedCovid wralsportsfan.com/we-call-him-th…
When Jaydn woke up from the medically induced coma, he lost 30 lbs. He was unable to walk or even text because he was too weak to hold his cell phone.
"He was in respiratory and heart failure," Dr. Aliese Sarkissian said. "If we didn't have those machines to help support him while the therapy was working, yes he could have died."

Another vaxxed parent has infected their unvaxxed child. Yet the mother of the hospitalized 3-year-old blames the unvaccinated:

"maybe if more people will be vaccinated, I wouldn’t have had the exposure that caused me to bring this illness to my daughter"
wfla.com/community/heal… Image
"Across Los Angeles County, cities and neighborhoods including West Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica now report some of the most infections, even though their vaccination rates are higher than in poorer areas such as East Los Angeles"

wsj.com/articles/in-lo… Image
Or — and I know this sounds crazy, but hear me out — maybe it was all the adverse events, the failure to block transmission, and the waning efficacy that 'tanked confidence' in the AstraZeneca vaccine?

"A British public health study has found that protection from either of the two most commonly used COVID-19 vaccines against the now prevalent Delta variant of the coronavirus weakens within three months."

"Breakthrough infections are occurring more frequently than previously reported"

"While...breakthrough infections are increasing, the studies showed hospitalizations remained stable, an indication the vaccines continue to hold up against severe illness."

"Let's be real, here: Breakthrough infections are sort of okay," Larry Corey, a virologist at Seattle's Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, tells the Journal."

Is organ damage, #LongCovid, and death "sort of okay" too?

@GVDBossche Herd immunity is not happening with these vaccines, even the "experts" now admit.

Instead, herd mentality appears to be leading to a thinning of the herd: "natural selection of individuals capable of resisting C-19 disease" ImageImage
@GVDBossche #SouthKorea: "a rise in so-called “silent spreaders” within communities such as workplaces, indoor gyms, churches and nursing homes, leading to an increase in infections of unknown origin"

scmp.com/news/asia/arti… Image
@GVDBossche "our data indicate that Delta variants are especially well recognized by infection enhancing antibodies targeting the NTD, the possibility of ADE should be further investigated as it may represent a potential risk for mass vaccination during the current Delta variant pandemic." Image

#VotingRights Alert: the NC budget will be on the #NCGA House floor this week. It includes anti-voter provisions. Learn more: my.lwv.org/sites/default/…

#ncpol #ForThePeopleAct #NorthCarolina
We need to let ALL legislators know how important it is to protect the right to vote in NC.
They will be under a lot of pressure to pass this bill because there are budgetary provisions – spending, raises, and tax cuts – that a lot of constituents want. BUT THE VOTING PROVISIONS NEED TO BE REMOVED or should be voted down.
