@ninaturner Gender is an accident of birth not deserving of loyalty. It doesn't overcome a record & policies. Sanders, who happens to be male, was fighting for my #ReproductiveRights in 1972, before Roe v Wade, at a time Warren was supporting & voting for the GOP.
@ninaturner Sanders, who happens to have been born male, led in fighting #domesticviolence against women. He even got the NFL to help. But, it's sexist to support him? 🤔⁉️#BernieYellsForUs and always has.

@ninaturner Breast cancer is one of a woman's greatest fears. Even though he happened to be born male, Sanders 1st legislative 'win' came out of his concern for us & he knew that scientists needed more information to find causes & cures. In 1992.

As a Christian clergy who celebrates all the spiritual paths that lead to Love; as a woman who was unable to conceive and who grieved for years; as an aunt and grandmother who thinks children are precious, I am #ProChoice AND #ProLife
There is more than one religion practiced in this nation and no religious point of view should guide our legal processes. In fact Jesus, who is the mentor for my Christian faith, healed a woman suffering with a reproductive issue—a hemorrhaging womb—for twelve years #WomensRights
Jesus' model of compassion and love for those on the margins and those needing healing and health care drives my commitment to health care for all, and my pro-choice position. #WomensRights #ReproductiveRights #LoveTransforms

Trump’s WORLDWIDE Effect on the Global Reproductive Rights of Women

Trump and his conservative Christian-centric administration are using positions of authority to impose religious policies on long-established reproductive rights that put women around the world at risk.
Background

Ronald Reagan signed the Mexico City Policy in 1984. This sweeping mandate against reproductive freedom around the globe denied,

“US federal funds to any organisation involved in providing abortion services overseas or counselling women about them.”
Though revoked by every Democrat and reinstated by every Republican
since, Trump has taken up the cause with renewed vigor.

Every time the global gag has been reimposed by a Republican president, rates of back street and self-administered abortions have increased.

When I went to end my ability to reproduce, there were no protesters. No 1 tried to talk me out of it, talked about God or murder, or made me get my wife's approval. The surgery took 10 minutes & was covered by insurance. It should be that easy for women. cnn.com/interactive/20…
To be clear #ReproductiveJustice should cover women, the Trans community, non binary people, anyone with a uterus, and more. Let's make everyone's reproductive healthcare & services as easy, professional, & uneventful as my vasectomy. 😁😳 #AlabamaAbortionBan #ReproductiveRights Doctor cauterizing Kamau'd vas deferens while Kamau lays down.
Fellas, in solidarity w/ #ShoutYourAbortion, #ShoutYourVasectomy.

Hat tip to @smartstatistic @FundMSabortions for the idea! 😎 Kamau getting a vasectomy from Dr. Joel Piser and an unnamed nurse.

so, in light of the unprecedented assault on women’s #ReproductiveRights across the country, I thought I’d share a little bit of my experience in hopes of improving education out there & to normalize something that isn’t being talked about much.
men, we’re a critical part of this discussion. not only must we stand up for the women in our lives, as their lives can literally depend upon it, we must also acknowledge & address a part we can play in it (outside of advocacy.)
last year, I had a vasectomy. we have 2 kids. we’re happy with 2. we’re done. for us, this decision seemed simple.

Congratulations to the idiots in Alabama's government for essentially begging drug cartels to begin highly-profitable clandestine manufacture and distribution of methotrexate, misoprostol, and mifepristone – two of which have unrelated uses. Y'all are morons. #ReproductiveRights
And to the #AlabamaAbortionBan folks, please explain this: how do you plan to investigate suspected illegal abortions, and how do you plan to differentiate them from incredibly common miscarriages, which are in and of themselves traumatic? What's your plan? #ReproductiveJustice
Is the idea to use the arm of big government to reach in to a doctor-patient relationship and treat it as a crime scene without probable cause? What is the standard for suspicion? Will you invoke 45 CFR 164.512(f)(1)(ii)(A)-(B)?

A note on #abortions

The woman's right to choose whether or not to terminate her pregnancy is a fundamental substantive due process right drawn from the Bill of Rights that protects the privacy & autonomy of the woman. Any assault on that by special interests or States is a
violation against the Constitution of the United States. #RoeVWade has long been virtually obsolete in the sense that in that case the woman's right to choose was plenary. Meaning, she could have an abortion whenever she wanted during the pregnancy. The Supreme Court has since
created significant boundaries around this right by saying that a woman's right to choose is plenary up until the fetus becomes viable. By viable SCOTUS meant the fetus could be kept alive outside the mother's womb through medical technology. Once the fetus reaches that point,

Graham was once one of Trump’s sharpest critics (“I think he’s a kook,” in 2016), and is now one of his staunchest supporters, whether it comes to supporting his Supreme Court pick, or his golf game (“Anyone who says he’s not a great golfer, that’s fake news,” he said).(WaPo)
Sen. Lindsey Graham advises President Donald Trump to “stick to his guns” in the fight over funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and warned that giving in to Democrats' demands could be "the end of his presidency." (USAToday)

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/

Thread: So here on Day 3 of #KavanaughHearings the man in question to take over as the next Supreme Court Justice called birth control an abortifacient - aka 'abortion inducing drug' - when responding to a Q from Cruz abt litigation challenging the ACA birth control benefit 1/
This is a falsehood, junk science, alternative fact, whatever you want to call it, but it is not true, like many other things related to #abortion, #contraception, and #reproductivehealth that are riddled with lies and junk science in order to feed an agenda. 2/
But we continue correcting the false narratives that r peddled abt these #reprohealth realities. There are multiple people stacking the White House who also agree with Kavanaugh...like this nominee that @AllyBoguhn reported for @Rewire_News last year: rewire.news/article/2017/0… 3/

Let's have a conversation about #healthcare that's larger than who pays for it shall we? For this thread I'm going to assume we can pass #MedicareForAll and insurance is no longer an issue. Now let's talk about what problems would still exist for women's healthcare /1
In this scenario #Medicare4All has been passed with the repeal of #Hyde so we don't have a problem funding abortions for anyone! But wait...does that overturn #TRAP laws? Waiting periods? Personhood bills? Heartbeat bills? 20 week bans? Specifically fund Planned Parenthood /2
Unfortunately #MedicareForAll wouldn't overturn all those pesky anti abortion laws meaning abortion would be insured if (and that's a big if) you have access to it. The reason you need Planned Parenthood still is because not all doctors choose to perform abortion /3
