Why did you tell @MeetThePress that women are having sex-selection abortions and that "was a matter of concern" and would have to "be dealt with"?
Because that's a right wing canard and you just agreed with it.
MTP: Are you at all concerned, though, about this idea that people may try to worry about the sex of a child or essentially --
SANDERS:I mean, that's a concern, yeah.
MTP: Are those type of restrictions on abortion something you're open to?
SANDERS:Well, that’s not a -- I wouldn't use a restriction on it. That's an issue that society has got to deal with. And it is of concern.
MTP: How would you deal with that in the law?

We are going to have a frank talk about women’s rights, boycotts and big tents. The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of Democrats support Roe v Wade and the autonomy and liberty of patents to choose the size and timing of their families. We must #StopTheBans. 1/
People are mobilizing on Tuesday May 21 to rally support for women’s rights and patients’ reproductive justice. (yes, trans and non-binary people can get pregnant too - be inclusive!) We must show support for patients and doctors criminalized under these extreme laws. Sign up! 2/
Sadly, one of our rallies must be in #Louisiana where a Democratic Governor pledged to sign a bill banning abortion rights even in the case of rape and incest. It’s awful and people should ask @LouisianaGov to give patients the same choice his wife had! 3/ cbsnews.com/news/democrati…

How many more states will make #abortion illegal?

Some abortions are already illegal in a majority of states and you may not even know yours is one of them.

Please read and RT.

Prior to #Roe in 1973, only three states, NY, WA and HI had legal abortion.
In 12 other states abortion was legal to save the life of the mother. In every other state abortion was illegal under all circumstances including rape, incest, fetal abnormality and life of the mother.
2/
Currently, all but six states--44 plus DC-- require parental notification for a minor to obtain an #abortion, even though significant numbers of minor pregnancies are caused by incest.

And there it is folks Chambliss admits that the MS bill is written as a direct challenge to Roe & designed to be sent to #SCOTUS to challenge it.

The health and safety of Alabama women is being used to as a political football to advance an extreme agenda. #HB314 #alpolitics
Chambliss also states that rulings from #SCOTUS are not designed to be place forever. Essentially that precedent be damned if it does not fit the political agenda of the party in power. This should be chilling to EVERYONE who claims to believe the rule of law #HB314 #alpolitics

HUGE shout out to the AL Democrats who fighting tooth & nail to protect the rights of women. And even bigger shout out to the groups on the ground: @PPSE_Advocates @YellowFund @ALWomensCenter #HB314 #alpolitics #StopTheBans

The US should regain the strategic initiative by laying down a “Googleable” trail of online info rapidly accessible to all, particularly when China's #MaritimeMilitia rises to the forefront.

Here's a start, based on 4+ years' research @NavalWarCollege:

To preempt and counteract propaganda, the US must get out in front of the #PAFMM problem with its own authoritative statements, including a fact sheet and an encounter documentation website.

Open-source researchers, including @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute @NavalWarCollege, have already published extensive scholarship to help reveal #China's #MaritimeMilitia.

The Office of Naval Intelligence @USNavy could be asked to fill in the gaps.

I posted the tweet below last night after work👇
I didn’t expect it to get the reaction it received because to me it just represented a hard day but not out of the ordinary. In fact I’ve had much worse..

I’ve been reliving my own event since Dr Ford came forward. My event 25 yrs ago was so similar & I understand better #WhyIDidntReport
I just told my family about it in the last few weeks but I won’t discuss it here. Instead I want you to see everyday life for a woman..
In my last job the CEO was a spoiled rich guy. He wanted to create a “fun” culture for the staff & regularly took us all out for drinks. One night there were about 40 of us at a bar & I talked to my colleagues when he came up & put his arm around my waist & his hand🤚on my a__
