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.

The beliefs of a minority, justified by a religion I do not follow, is now going to determine the daily realities for me, my children and all Americans. It is wrong. It is outrageous. We are broken. #RightToPrivacy #RightToChoose #AbortionIsHealthcare
I am a doctor. I have seen countless cases where a very wanted pregnancy has very real complications. There is so much nuance lost in making this a political issues. Let women and their doctors make the extraordinarily difficult and personal decisions that such situations need.
I am not a Christian. I am not an atheist. I am not an anything. But I am a person who believes religion is deeply personal and informs who a person is. But your religion can’t, and shouldn’t, inform who *I* am. Only I can do that.

BSNL மற்றும் MTNL பொதுத்துறை நிறுவனத்திற்கு சொந்தமான 0.35 லட்சம் கோடி மதிப்புள்ள Fiber Optic Cable Network-க்குகளை ஒன்றிய அரசு, தனியாரிடம் ஒப்படைக்க முடிவு செய்துள்ளது. மக்கள் பொதுப்பணத்தில் கட்டப்பட்ட BSNL நிறுவனத்திற்கு சொந்தமான 15,000 Tower-களும் இதில் அடங்கும் (1/6)
இந்த தொழில்நுட்பங்கள் தனியாரிடம் ஒப்படைக்கப்படுவதில் முக்கியமாக கவனிக்கப்பட வேண்டியது, இவை மக்களின் தனியுரிமைக்கு (Privacy) பெரிதளவில் பாதிப்பு ஏற்படுத்தக்கூடியவை. Facebook, Google, Jio போன்ற நிறுவனங்கள் ஏற்கனவே இவற்றை அடியோடு அழித்துக் கொண்டு இருப்பதை நாம் அறிவோம் (2/6)
இணையம், தொழில்நுட்பம் அனைத்து மக்களுக்கும் கொண்டு சேர்க்க வேண்டியது அரசின் கடமை. அது தனியாரிடம் போகும்போது, அனைத்து மக்களுக்கும் இது எட்டாக் கனியாகவே அமையும். இடைவெளி பெரிதாகும் (Digital Divide). தனியார் நிறுவனங்கள் முற்றிலும் லாபநோக்கத்திலேயே இயங்கும் (3/6)

(1/n) A list of about 150 residents of Nagpur city was openly shared on several WhatsApp groups last night. It contained tabular data that consisted of names, addresses, phone numbers of home quarantined individuals, organized by zones and police station. #covid19india
(2/n)This list did not mention a header or footer or any source or owner responsible for this sensitive data. It did not mention whether consent was sought from home quarantined individuals for sharing their private information openly over digital or offline media. #covid19india
(3/n) This immediately triggered vigilantism on groups where the list was shared. A lot of those listed on the set of home quarantined individuals started receiving calls. #covid19india

THREAD: I am putting Advocate Seema Sapra's arguments on the #AadhaarHearings here because it I find it extremely cohesive and think it very important for everyone to read and discuss. The link to her post is above. 1/n
2/n #AadhaarHearing is "framed too narrowly around privacy and there are other more serious concerns about Aadhaar &facts about the Aadhaar biometric identification system that have not been placed before the Supreme Court or are being sidelined by the focus on the privacy right
3/n The focus on privacy in the #AadhaarHearings sidelines the issue "that Aadhaar in its very design and implementation more fundamentally violates the right to identity, to person-hood, to citizenship and consequently the right to life itself."
