Hello Poster lovers!

Today is Sunday, so why don't we learn something about social rights?

I researched two significant movements in history that used vintage posters as a tool to bring attention to their cause:
- 'I Am a Man '
- The women's rights movement.
Let's dive in! Image
The "I Am a Man" movement emerged in Memphis, TN in 1968, with African American sanitation workers demanding better pay and safer working conditions. The workers marched with signs bearing the words "I Am a Man," asserting their humanity and dignity in the face of discrimination. Image
One iconic poster from the "I Am a Man" movement features the phrase "Honor King: End Racism!", symbolizing resistance and solidarity. The poster was created to promote a march that took place in Memphis in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. after his assassination. #MLK #Posters Image

The in-person #Barnraising group is grounding in the political history of #abortion in the US & globally, with @minnpop member Dr. Elizabeth Heger Boyle outlining US restrictions on #RoevWade from the 90s to #Dobbs. #healthequity #ReproductiveJustice
Dr. Elizabeth Heger Boyle continues to define PLACE as a social delineation, a distance, and as physical environment.

@WHO advocates for #abortion across the globe, but that international authority has different meaning in US. #Barnraising #healthequity #ReproductiveJustice

Was any other major issue given as little time as abortion and the overturning of #RoeVWade in #Biden’s #sotu2023?

Fucking outrageous.

If you thought “Where’s the sense of urgency?!” now you know.

It doesn’t exist.
It’s as if nothing happened just a few months ago.

It’s bad enough that Republicans won the House just 5 months after the Supreme Court overturned #RoeVWade and now the president gives it what—3 or 4 sentences?!

Wow
I am THRILLED that I am postmenopausal because to be a person who could get pregnant in this country right now would be to held hostage to a zealotry that at the highest levels of politics in this country is denied.

Fucking outrageous #SOTU

🧵 Today, is the 50th Anniversary of the 1973 #RoeVWade decision. Last year, we faced a major setback in the fight for reproductive freedom in this country. But we didn’t give up; We fought like hell to defend abortion access and protect reproductive freedom in Michigan.
Before Roe was overturned, I filed a lawsuit with the Michigan Supreme Court asking them to protect abortion access in Michigan. On the day of the Dobbs decision, I filed a motion to have the court immediately consider the case.
freep.com/story/opinion/…
The following month, I signed an Executive Directive instructing state employees to identify opportunities to increase protections for reproductive healthcare and access to contraception.

Today, on what would be the 50th Anniversary of #RoeVWade, @aijenpoo shared the following statement:

“Everyone should have the opportunity and means to care and make decisions for themselves, their families and futures. 1/8
No matter what it looks like or the role we play, family is at the heart of what we value most. The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn #RoeVWade has taken away one critical way people can manage their lives, health, and wellbeing. 2/8
Forcing someone to carry a pregnancy against their will can have devastating and lasting consequences for them and their family. 3/8

Three years ago I miscarried in the second trimester of a pregnancy. It’s a painful memory but something many women have experienced.
 
I traveled hours to the nearest clinic, and I encountered anti-choice protesters. Thankfully I got the care I needed that day.
I had been told without an immediate abortion, or dilation and evacuation, that my life was at risk. That I could die, or not be able to have children in the future.
 
I got the care I needed, and now I'm the mother of my 17 month old son.
On what would’ve been #RoeVWade’s 50th anniversary, I’m thinking of the millions of Americans with stories like mine who are forced to go without access to safe reproductive care.
 
I won't stop fighting to restore this fundamental right and defend reproductive freedom for all.

50 years after the #RoeVWade decision, women have been cheated. Our freedom to make our decisions about our health and futures has been ripped away by Republican extremists who have decided they can crowd into the examining room and decide our fates.
Today, I am furious, but I am more committed to this fight than ever. I don’t want to make reproductive health care decisions for politicians — and I don’t want them making those decisions for me, my daughter, or millions of other women.
Republican extremists have come for our constitutional rights, and millions of us are fighting back. When we can get abortion rights on the ballot, we’ve said in one, big, loud voice: back off.

Today, we should be celebrating 50 years of #RoeVWade — a vital step in our journey toward liberty and justice for all.

Instead, the GOP sold out Americans in service of a dark vision: a country where freedom is reserved for a privileged few. 1/4
Abortion is now unavailable in 14 states: nearly 18 million women face barbaric health care restrictions while doctors are threatened with criminal charges for simply doing their jobs. Every day, these laws are forcing Americans through senseless, preventable anguish. 2/4
Yet Republicans are still doubling down on their crusade against freedom. Within days of gaveling in the new Congress, the @HouseGOP passed two senseless anti-abortion bills. And now, they have introduced legislation to impose a nationwide abortion ban. 3/4

The Supreme Court issued its decision on #RoeVWade on Jan. 22, 1973. It overturned #RoeVsWade on June 24, 2022

Essays I've written on #abortion. Several are also available in Arabic.

On my "illegal" abortion in Egypt and "legal" abortion in the US feministgiant.com/p/abortion-is-…
I met Nobel Laureate Annie Ernaux last year and told her how moved I was by the recounting of her "illegal" abortion in Happening and shared with her the story of my "illegal" abortion.

My essay on the film adaptation of "Happening."

For as long as patriarchy can shroud abortion with silence, it will continue to stamp it in shame. So I broke my silence to break free of shame.

May I join the legion of others saying 'who the fuck is Fiona Bruce MP?'

What do we know about the anti-abortion evangelical Christian Bruce?

And as so few voters have even heard of her, how on earth is she the MP with the fourth biggest outside earnings?
Following her selection as the Conservative Party candidate for the Congleton constituency in 2010, Bruce denied allegations that she had been chosen following an orchestrated campaign by religious groups sympathetic to her evangelical Christian beliefs.
Bruce is a council member of the Evangelical Alliance - a national alliance & member of the World Evangelical Alliance. Founded in 1846, the activities of the Evangelical Alliance aim to promote evangelical Christian beliefs in government, media & society.

‼️Right-wing judicial activist Leonard Leo (then-EVP of the Federalist Society) helped facilitate the sale of Kellyanne Conway’s polling company in 2017 **while she was advising Trump** on Leo’s handpicked list of SCOTUS candidates.

TOTAL #corruption.🤬
politico.com/news/2022/12/2…
The sale came at a critical moment for Kellyanne▶️her ownership had come under Congressional scrutiny for potential “conflicts of interest,” likely creating pressure to unload it even though its value was unclear and she was its biggest asset but committed to her WH job.🙄
Leo—via one of his dark money groups—helped finance the transaction between Kellyanne and Creative Response Concepts Inc (CRC) *worth between $1 million and $5 million*.

At the time, CRC was also bringing in millions of dollars from dark money groups to promote Leo’s picks.🤬

It’s been almost six months since #SCOTUS overturned #RoeVWade and the Court’s conservatives have accelerated the Christian nationalists’ project to reimagine the boundaries of our civil society, reflects @Hegemommy.

For years, Republicans have shown they are willing to sacrifice democracy when it gets in their way, and the Supreme Court is an essential component of this project of maintaining minority control at all costs, explains @KA_OConnor.

How much worse can it get? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is “a lot,” says @AngryBlackLady.

We were breathlessly told by pundits and reporters that the Whitmer-Dixon race was a nail-biter. But those of us who didn't imbibe the Republican "red wave" Kool-Aid weren't surprised by the blue blowout in Michigan Tuesday. Me, in the @MichiganAdvance. michiganadvance.com/2022/11/14/sus…
Let's start four weeks out, when a story appeared in the Detroit News trumpeting that it was a “pivotal week” in the race, even tough Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was 17 points up in polls, with Republican Tudor Dixon announcing she’ll “prove them all wrong.” michiganadvance.com/2022/11/14/sus…
Whitmer was running a smart campaign on kitchen-table issues, including abortion rights. AG Dana Nessel and SOS Jocelyn Benson hammered that democracy, sanity and voting rights were at stake, as the GOP nominated a slate of outré election deniers. michiganadvance.com/2022/11/14/sus…

Anzahl der legalen Abtreibungen in 🇺🇸 in den 2 Monaten nach der #RoevWade Supreme Court-Entscheidung ist um mehr als 10000 zurückgegangen. Zwischen April & August sank Zahl der Abtreibungen um 6%. Wenn sich Trend fortsetzt, könnte es 60.000 Abtreibungen in ´23 weniger geben.

1/4 Image
Zwischen den Staaten gibt es enorme Schwankungen. In allen Staaten, in denen die Zahl der Abtreibungen zurückgegangen war – darunter die 15 Staaten, in denen Abtreibungen im Sommer verboten oder stark eingeschränkt waren – ging die Zahl der Abtreibungen um ~22.000 zurück.

2/4 Image
Viele sind für Abtreibung in anderen Staat gereist. Dort stieg die Zahl der Abtreibungen insgesamt um ~12.000. Landesweit reichte die Verlagerung von Abtreibungen aus Staaten mit Verboten in Staaten mit weniger Zugangsbeschränkungen nicht aus, um das Defizit auszugleichen.

>10,000 fewer legal abortions in the US in the 2 months after the #RoevWade Supreme Court decision. Between Apr-Aug, the number of abortions declined by 6%. If these trends persist, there could be at least 60,000 fewer abortions in the next year as a result of the decision.

1/🧵 Image
That figure is a net. A few states are absorbing some but not all of the demand for abortions in states where it’s now banned.
It’s likely that the decline in abortions represents thousands of women who sought abortions illegally or didn’t get one at all.

2/ ImageImage
There´s an enormous amount of fluctuation between states. In all states that saw declines in their abortion numbers — which include the 15 states in which abortion was banned or severely limited over the summer — the number of abortions fell by about 22,000.

Check out how abortion access has changed since the end of #RoevWade. I just launched a new abortion access dashboard you can use to visualize changes in travel distances and appointment availability as abortion bans ripple across the country. (1/7)

abortionaccessdashboard.org
Click on any state to see how average travel time to the nearest provider has changed since March and how it would continue to change if all 25 bans warned by @Guttmacher and @ReproRights come to pass.(2/7) abortionaccessdashboard.org
Zoom into destinations to see travel networks and measures of congestion. E.g., 2 facilities in Wichita now serve a region with 5 million women of reproductive age. When we called last month only one of them had appointments available within 2 weeks. (3/7) abortionaccessdashboard.org

🪡 MAGA extremists now openly flaunt support for Putin’s Dictatorship currently murdering, raping in illegally occupied and annexed parts of Ukraine.

Truly the #Midterm2022 election is a fight to save US democracy.

#Ukraine #MAGA #Trump #MidtermElections #Jan6 #RoeVWade
2 🪡 Trump’s love of Dictators was signalled quite early on, in his fan mail to Vladimir Putin in December 2007.

At the time Putin was brutally suppressing protests for freedom led by @Kasparov63 in Moscow.

#MAGA #Trump #Ukraine #Midterms #MidtermElections2022
3 🪡 Over the years this love of the Russian Dictatorship has led to Trump applauding Putin’s poll ratings & ‘genius’

Poll ratings in a Dictatorship, as we all know, are not a true and realistic reflection of reality.

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4668: Herschel Walker allegedly paying for abortions for the mother of one of his children
#EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #HerschelWalker #Abortion #MotherOfHisChildren #RoeVWade
2/ Earlier today, during a press scrum, Herschel Walker was asked multiple times re allegations of an abortion for which he had paid — and if the woman who had the abortion is also the mother of one of his children.
3/ In this short (1 min, 40 second video), Herschel Walker makes multiple verbal denials including, "No", "Why do I need to?",..."Because I said, 'No', that's what I mean, when I say, 'No', I said, 'That's not correct. That's a lie', and that's what I mean, that's a lie.",...

Sunday marked 100 days since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a devastating decision that has left millions struggling to access essential abortion care.

We’ve broken down the repercussions of this decision over the last 100 days, by the numbers. 🧵⬇️
People across the U.S. seeking abortions are being forced to cross state lines, traveling hundreds of miles to access essential care.

Consequently, clinics in states where abortion is legal have become inundated with out-of-state patients.
We continue to #ActForAbortionAccess in support of #WHPA and the EACH Act. These two bills are critical to ensure that people can get the health care they need and MUST be passed by Congress. 📣
