@Wtg4Gateau @latimes Protests can be directed to the UC Board of Regents. The LA Times article cites a petition; the petition is only for UC community members, but there is good language in it that describes what a terrible decision it would be to affiliate. gdoc.pub/doc/e/2PACX-1v
@Wtg4Gateau @latimes I would also protest to CA State Senator and Assembly representatives. Contact the California State Senate here: senate.ca.gov. Contact the California State Assembly here: assembly.ca.gov/front

Dear Republicans,

Late term abortions are:

1) to save the life of the mother
2) used to terminate a pregnancy when a fetus is not viable.

What does "not viable" mean? I'm glad you finally asked...

A fetus that is not viable is one that has such severe deformities that the baby, if born, will not survive.

Furthermore, if the baby is born, the deformities can be so severe that life outside of the womb will be torture. A painful, agonizing death.

(2)
So when you say #AbortionIsMurder and simplify #LateTermAbortion as this evil act that murders an unborn baby, you're missing that this baby could never survive and will die in the most unimaginable way.

You're ignoring the facts.

@PPFA gripes about the Trump administration's revival of programmatic restrictions for grant recipients of Title X Family Planning funds. No matter how America's abortion superstore howls, the rule is entirely constitutional.

@BarackObama liked to taunt, "elections have consequences." One such consequence is that we now have the most anti-abortion-acting President that we have had since the decision in Roe vs. Wade reversed the nation's 170-year history of abortion prohibition.
Notice, I didn't say we now have the most anti-abortion President. I didn't say we now have the most pro-life President. I said the most anti-abortion-acting President.

1.) Es ist doch immer wieder erstaunlich, dass Abtreibungsgegner*innen als Bundestagsabgeordnete oder Bundesminister*innen im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes über Leichen gehen und damit auch noch durchkommen und sogar gewählt werden.
2.) Trotz oder vermutlich wegen ihrer Bigotterie, ihrer Misogynie und ihrer Menschenverachtung. Pfui. Wie widerlich und verachtenswert. Nicht nur die namentlich genannten, sondern auch all ihre Wähler*innen. Allesamt.
3.) Da wäre z.B. Volker #Kauder #CDU
Wäre es nach ihm gegangen, könnten Frauen noch immer straffrei in der Ehe vergewaltigt werden. Er stimmte nämlich 1997 gegen die Strafbarkeit und damit für die Straffreiheit von Vergewaltigern.

15 years ago today, my baby girl died in my arms at 5 1/2 months old after suffering excruciating pain from a rare metabolic syndrome. The gruesome details of the long ordeal I will not go into. After doing everything we could we signed a DNR and took her off life support... 1/
We had a meeting with the hospital pastor, the palliative care director, and specialists of various types who all tried to help us save Nicole. The consensus was that if she survived, she would have no quality of life but that it was unlikely she would pull through w/o. 2/
Life support. We were told we might be able to keep her alive longer with a tracheotomy (she already had a feeding tube). It was clear to us by this point that our little baby girl was dying. We chose not to go with a tracheotomy and decided that Nicole's 3/

@WorldHijabDay Yea, no, I don't believe that for a second. I've DONE this and not just for a single day. I observed Islamic dress code for 2 weeks in 2002. I wanted to try and understand more about the people that produced the men who murdered my friend.
I covered even in my own home when there was a man not related to me. I wore Hijab and made certain my arms were covered and my clothing was loose. And you know what? It made me feel like I was worthless.
The ONLY positive that came of this experiment was that there were some younger people that ALSO lost friends/family on 9-11 and I was able to show them that (while I was not muslim) not everyone in islamic garb was a terrorist.

In #NewYork a woman can now have an #abortion at any anytime in her #pregnancy. Up to the 9th months

What's next? A law saying you can off you kid after birth

They do it to #babies that come out alive at abortion clinics

These people are pure evil! This pisses me off so much⬇
I want to make a video about abortion on my #YouTube channel but I can't get through finding clips without my eye's watering up. It breaks my heart. I'm a very strong man. I don't cry.

I have a soft spot for #kids. Them being hurt or #murdered eats at me. They are helpless.⬇
We have to stop the #DeepState. Abortion and #ChildTrafficking has to be stopped! This shit can't keep happening.

That is the main reason I'm in this fight. We have to fight for the #children because they can't #fight for themselves. It's on us to #protect them.⬇

Louisiana could lose two abortion clinics this week and here's why...

(with gifs)

thinkprogress.org/supreme-court-…
In Louisiana a law was created for "a physician performing or inducing an abortion” to “have active admitting privileges at a hospital that is located not further than thirty miles from the location at which the abortion is performed..." 2/
If this law sounds familiar that's because Texas did the exact same thing but it was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2016. 3/

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

There are some women who get pregnant and don’t want the child for whatever reason (financial instability, maturity, mental illnesses, life endeavors, etc...) and i feel like abortion is an option that shouldn’t be frowned upon.
Ofcourse, there are many people that believe abortion is murder and that you’re going against god’s will or way or whatever. But i honestly feel like it’s not god’s will for a child to be born to starve, or to get abused or neglected.
On another note, there are people that feel like if you aren’t ready to have a child then don’t have sex. And as logical as that may sound... it’s foolishness. Sex is a pleasurable act. Sometimes you don’t want to have sex to procreate. Simple.

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

We really need to talk more about #abortion as an option for women.
It's hard to say this and hard to hear it for many, but just because you discover you are pregnant doesn't mean you must carry that pregnancy to term. Your decision will last the rest of your life--and the rest of the life of any child you decide to carry to term.
#abortion
And no, I am not advocating #abortion.
I'm advocating thinking about parenthood & all it entails.
Because once you have a child, you can't just walk away from that life.
And women/girls are talked into maintaining pregnancies every day.
More discussion would change that.

How to refute popular Anti-choice positions. A thread. #Prochoice #MarchForLife
Anti-Choice Position 1: Embryos are babies therefore they have the right to life.

This is really three separate positions (Life Begins at Conception therefore Embryos are Babies and deserve rights/protections) but they’re heavily intertwined.
The first position that“Embryos are babies” is intended to incite an emotional response from the Pro-choicer. It’s intended to challenge your perception of the word baby which is a colloquial term and can be used to describe anything from a newborn, a car or a significant other.
