🧵In #Dortmund wird eine neue Klinik für Schwangerschaftsabbrüche derzeit brutal angegriffen, schreibt @ChoiceEv in 1 Pressemeldung: Bereits im Vorfeld gab es massive Versuche, die Ärztin selbst & den Vermieter, die R&V-Versicherung, unter Druck zu setzen und zu diffamieren: /1
Details dieser Propaganda sind einsehbar auf den Websites der Abtreibungsgegner und Holocaustverharmloser Klaus Günther Annen und Karl Noswitz. Ein an Widerwärtigkeit nicht zu überbietender Flyer wurde in Wiesbaden vor der R+V-Direktion verteilt. /2
Im Flyer wird d Ärztin gedroht: „Eine tickende Zeitbombe“ sei sie, „könnte die Provokation nicht stärker zuspitzen. Hoffentlich dreht niemand durch. Wie in den USA. Dort wird in Abtreibungskliniken Feuer gelegt & geschossen. Das gibt es in Europa natürlich nicht. Noch nicht.“ /3

We need to talk about women being pressured into abortions.

The European Court of Human Rights will rule today on a case where three women in a psychiatric institution were forced to have abortions against their will.

THREAD / 🧵
#ECHR #abortion #humanrights
Last month, the court ruled in a case where a 20-year-old had been forced to have an abortion by her parents, also against her will. The court strongly condemned this as a breach of human rights:
Forced abortion, they said, is
"an egregious form of inhuman and degrading treatment which had not only resulted in a serious immediate damage to her health – that is the loss of her unborn child – but had also entailed long-lasting negative physical and psychological effects."

Democrats are NOT pro-choice. 🧵

Joe Biden has opposed abortion for his entire career. He pretends he changed his mind, but his current actions belie his lies.
The Biden Administration could have opened federally protected and funded abortion clinics. They passed.

A thread on bodily autonomy and consent - the handshake:

A) John and Bob see each other in a bar, mutually offer their hands to the other in the traditional social sense and shake hands.

B) John sees Bob, grabs his arm, pulls his hand forward, and John grabs Bob's hand.

1/
Now imagine, John has relaxed his hand, he's no longer gripping and is pulling his arm away.

Bob should also release. He has been given an active sign of the withdraw of consent.

If Bob maintains his grip and does not release, he is violating John's bodily autonomy.

2/
But wait...I didn't tell you if we were in scenario A or B, right?

Because it doesn't matter. The consent at the start of the situation is irrelevant to how consent works at the time it is withdrawn.

John grabbed Bob's hand without consent in B, but Bob can then consent.

If anyone would like to point out where this comparison/example fails, let me know.

I will use cis terms just for brevity's sake, but many inclusive scenarios are just as accurate.

A woman invites a man on a date. She invites him back to her place.

1/
She initiates sex. She absolutely wants to have sex. The man wants it, too. He accepts and consents back. This is consensual sex.

There is no aggression. There are no unwanted actions. It is an intimate, caring situation. She is enjoying it.

And then change her mind.

2/
Consensual sex requires the active consent of both parties. Thus, the withdraw of consent by ONE makes it nonconsensual. There is no longer two-way consent. It is instantly nonconsensual sex. It is instantly, technically, rape now.

#Prochoice and #Prolife, this is why the #RomanianOrphanCrisis came about. I think we can agree this is not going to happen in the US. "In 1966 Ceausescu’s regime made abortion illegal and each family had an obligation to the state to have at least four children... 1/6
"In a world where 10 eggs, 4 kilos of flour, 1 kilo of meat, and a pound of butter per person was the norm for a month’s supply of food, many Romanian families could not possibly support more than the required minimum quota of children, and that too was done with great effort 2/6
"However, with abortion being illegal, many parents could only keep their first four children and put the rest in orphanages.

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.

Many men absolutely agree with him, he's just saying it openly and being reported. He used a "pro-life" qualifier but it's obvious millions of men don't believe we have the right to bodily autonomy, pregnant or not. Look how common sexual violence and sexual harassment are.
97% of UK women have experienced sexual harassment. I in 5 women have been raped as an adult. 1 in 6 children have been sexually abused.
Our society tolerates, even encourages through porn culture the objectification of females. We are seen as walking orifices &/or walking wombs.
Rape is effectively decriminalised in the UK. Parliament is a cesspit of sexual harassment. The so called progressive left have spent a decade attacking feminism, pushing young people to partake in the objectification of women as a form of praxis "womb owners" "cervixed people".

#TellYourStory how #RoeVsWade affected you. Here’s mine.

I was 17. I didn’t have high self esteem. My parents were either emotionally vacant or physically gone. I equated sex with love. I was wrong. The next part is so much like #ChristineBlasseyFord, I felt like I knew her…
My “boyfriend” took me to a party. He even came inside to meet my dad. No one had done that. I felt loved…until a couple hours later. He took me to a room in the back of the house. We’d been drinking. I had consensual sex with him. He said he needed to use the bathroom…
He left the room. closed the door. Seconds later it opened, but it wasn’t him. It was several other young men, some older - maybe in their 20s. My boyfriend came in and they tried to hold me down to gang rape me. I fought for my life and clawed one. I told them they’d have to…

Since the draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion was criminally leaked on May 2, left-wing extremists have begun targeting churches & pro-life groups as revenge for a legal process that actually has nothing to do with them.

I will document the attacks here. #abortion ImageImageImage
Boulder, Colo.: On May 3, the Sacred Heart of Mary Church was smashed up & vandalized. This was the second time the church had been vandalized in less than a year. The vandal(s) left behind #Antifa anarchist symbols & messages. #abortion denver.cbslocal.com/2022/05/04/sac… ImageImageImage
Portland, Ore.: On May 3, #Antifa joined a group of pro-choice protesters who marched throughout downtown before smashing up city hall & numerous businesses. They also tried to set the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse on fire using incendiary devices. portlandoregon.gov/police/news/re…

This morning I preached on the #lectionary passage from Acts, which tells the story of the healing of Tabitha, who is also known as Dorcas. I wrote the sermon in the shadow of the overturning of #Roe. A 🧵 #prochoice
Tabitha was one of few women called a disciple in the Bible. She was noted as someone who did many good works. She fell sick & died. The “widows”, other women who were her friends, surrounded her in death and grieved. Then, knowing she followed Jesus, they called Peter. 2/?
It was the very early days of the church, and Peter was the de facto leader. So he was, for all intents and purposes, charged with responding on behalf of the church. He came to the room where Tabitha lay dead. 3/?

Here is my weekly @townhallcom Column ✍️

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was Right: Roe v. Wade was always destined for the Scrap Heap🗑️
townhall.com/columnists/pet… @benshapiro @AbbyJohnson @madelineorr #conservative #elonmusk #abortion #prochoice #roe #RoeVWade #RoeOverturned
May be hard for my friends on the left to hear this,

our whole lives we've been told how important Roe v Wade was in giving women the right to abortion via a right to privacy

But this was fiction, the only question for Roe v. Wade was when it would be overturned, not if.
whatever ur opinion on abortion,

Roe v Wade was objectively bad law built upon the weakest case constitutionally

As RBG predicted,
Roe was always eventually going to be overturned

Mit den Worten „Kommt bitte zahlreich!“ ruft die AfD-Splittergruppe „Bundesvereinigung Christen in der AfD“ zum Münchner „#MarschfürsLeben“ auf. Es gibt aus der #AfD selbst bislang keine Signale, dass sie sich am Marsch beteiligen. Trotzdem ein 🧵 zum Thema AfD & Abtreibung. !B Das Bild ist ein Foto vom Marsch für das Leben in Berlin 20
Die "Alternative für Deutschland" kann als ein parlamentarischer Arm der „Lebensschutz“-Bewegung bezeichnet werden. „Ein“ Arm, da die Unionsparteien beim Thema #Schwangerschaftsabbruch auch noch eine maßgebliche Rolle spielen, dazu aber an anderer Stelle mehr. Zurück zur AfD...
„Abtreibung ist (…) grundsätzlich Unrecht“ schreibt z. B. die bayerische AfD 2018 in ihr Wahlprogramm zur Landtagswahl. Neben ihren antiquierten Positionen zu #Gender, Geschlechterrollen oder ihrem Familienbegriff, richtet sich die Partei auch explizit gegen reproduktive Rechte.

People will come to realize that what I said last summer is correct and Lindy:

It comes down to #MyBodyMyChoice and the #prochoice crowd should have stood up for bodily autonomy but didn't.

If this take seems obvious to you now, I promise it was considered fringe in Summer '21.
People may forget that merely a few months ago, when it was a confusing blur of propaganda and fearmongering, to say that it came down to bodily autonomy seemed like a "meh" quaint opinion.

People were terrified and didn't care about bodily autonomy.

I pushed on regardless.
I knew my takes would be Lindy.

And I remember who doubted.

Public sentiment will fall into my side.

And I still despise the #prochoice crowd for not standing up for their supposed beliefs of bodily autonomy. Cowards.
