This #WomensEqualityDay, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and reflect on the ongoing fight and struggle for women's equality, let's recognize the role @POTUS has played in denigrating women with his words & actions. Since 2017 he has:
Called women pigs, dogs, low IQ, nasty, fat, disgusting, horse face, not my type, slob, wacky, bimbo, that woman. And who could forget his calls to lock her up, send her back, or grab them by the p****?
Condoned discrimination by allowing virtually any employer or school to deny women no-copay birth control, used not only to prevent pregnancy but also to reduce cramps, lighten periods, and prevent acne, bone thinning, breast & ovarian cysts, anemia, endometrial & ovarian cancers

BREAKING: We just filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Supreme Court asking them to restore essential, time-sensitive medication abortion services in Texas while our case challenging @GovAbbott's #COVID19 order proceeds. #AbortionIsEssential
2. For nearly three weeks, providers in Texas have had to cancel appointments for hundreds of patients, and today, abortion remains virtually inaccessible in the state due to @GovAbbott's #COVID19 order.
3. Meanwhile, leading medical experts, including the @AmerMedicalAssn, @acog, and @boardobgyn have told the courts that abortion care should not be delayed during #COVID19 & that doing so creates a greater strain on the hospital system during this global public health crisis.

I am running against the most socially regressive member of Congress, @RepHartzler.

She is Missouri's female Todd Akin.
She is the Steve King of anti-LGBTQ+ issues.

And she's flown under the radar for 10 long years.



Vicky was paid more $35,000 to write this⬇️post, wherein she equates female autonomy to the holocaust and implies that pregnant women are Nazis while minimizing the tragedy that was the mass murder of 6 million Jewish ppl.

Nearly 80% of Americans believe Roe v. Wade was rightly decided. So let's talk about what that decision actually says.

1). It allows women in their first trimester, in consultation with a physician, to make the best healthcare decision possible.

Reminder: the disinterested mannequin presiding over Trump's impeachment trial, John Roberts, has on his docket a case that he will use to eviscerate a woman's right over her own body.

He will undoubtedly take a very keen interest in doing that. #RoevWade
There is no medical procedure more regulated than abortion; there isn't even a close second.

Continuing to restrict abortion—laws which *only* affect women—is why conservatives will fight tooth and nail against allowing the Equal Rights Amendment into the Constitution.
Since Virginia ratified the ERA a few days ago, that should be it. The courts—which the constitutional amendment process is specifically designed to get around—should have no say in whether it's a valid amendment.

But have little doubt the Roberts Court will strike down the ERA.

NEW- Nearly 1 dozen organizations joined our amicus brief arguing that the #SCOTUS must reject Louisiana’s Act 620, an unconstitutional restriction on the right to access abortion care.

Our brief highlights the particularly harsh impact that the law would have on Black women.
States like Louisiana are adopting restrictions on abortion that will have a harsher impact on Black women.

61.2% of women who accessed abortions in Louisiana in 2018 were Black women.

Our brief provides a racial justice framework for understanding these latest attacks.
Act 620 imposes significant barriers to Black women’s ability to access abortion services. Because Black women are disproportionately low-income in Louisiana, they are half as likely to be able to travel between 25 and 50 miles for abortion care. @LawyersComm @DarielyEsq

SHE'S HERE! #ElizabethWarren takes the stage. #theMajorityRules
Tune in NOW:
When #ElizabethWarren was urged to run for Senate, she was also told she couldn't win.

"If a woman doesn't run, I guarantee a woman will never win. You won't get what you won't fight for." — @ewarren #theMajorityRules
@ewarren .@ewarren made sure she did two things every day:
— She found a group of people to talk about what's important and why she's in the fight.
— Every time she met a little girl, she'd tell her "Hello, my name is Elizabeth, and I'm running for Senate because that's what girls do."

To date, Trump has named 150 judges who have been confirmed to LIFETIME seats on the federal courts.

86% are white
77% are male

Many are radical and outside the legal mainstream. Like Steven Menashi who is currently up for Thurgood Marshall's seat on the 2nd Circuit...
In college, Trump's judicial nominee Steven Menashi defended a fraternity that threw a “ghetto party”. He claimed the event was “harmless and unimportant.” People at at the party were wearing afro wigs and carrying toy guns.…
Trump's judicial nominee Steven Menashi dismissed education about multicultural awareness saying it “denigrating Western culture to promote self-esteem among ‘marginalized groups.’” He also described multiculturalism as "totally bankrupt"

When I wrote, I did so knowing the brutal truth that we've entered a new phase in American politics, one where the far right has taken control of the GOP and is seizing more power by the day. The book explains the lay of the battlefield and what we can do.
As blue Americans, we are in a struggle for political survival. The usual Beltway strategies don't work. Within lawful and non-violent means, we need to join forces, be leaders, and defend our rights and our democracy.

The #abortion battle is a central part of that fight.
As @KristenClarkeJD said: "A coordinated attack on Roe v Wade and women’s reproductive freedom is well underway."

To the males who follow me, THIS IS OUR FIGHT TOO. The frontal assault on women's health and freedom affects ALL of us.

I'm gonna take flack for this and that is ok. You are free to disagree. I am #ProLife. I think abortion is murder. I also think #AlabamaAbortionBan is a mistake for the long game. /1
I know from my own children and their friends we are winning the culture war on late-term abortion. I think if they had banned late-term we might even win that at the supreme court level. /2
I think leaving out an exemption for rape or incest is also a plank that the liberals will beat us over the head with. Rape/Incest is less than 1% of all abortion and technically it could be considered health fo the mother issue. / 3

Fuck. Just saw a tweet reminding us that Alabama is making abortion a felony & felons can’t vote so soon enough massive amount of people, mostly poor & black women, will be labeled as felons & unable to vote. Further expansion of the prison industrial complex & the new Jim Crow.
We often think of the PIC as targeting men of color, particularly black men, but these new laws in states with large poor black populations are clearly intended to disenfranchise & legally enslave more black people.
THIS is why we need coalitional thinking. THIS is why we need a #reproductivejustice framework that sees prison abolition & abortion rights & voting laws as all interconnected. Reproductive justice & racial justice will always be inherent intertwined.

This attack on women's health and freedom is an abomination.

To my fellow males: THIS IS OUR FIGHT TOO. STEP UP.

#Abortion #RoeVWade #Alabama
I'd say this was like a return to previous centuries, but it's WORSE. These laws being pushed by radical extremist Republicans are unlike anything we've ever seen.




#ALpolitics #Alabama #Abortion

I mean, how isn't the nation coming to a standstill as #Barr goes after Russia investigators, the GOP brazenly defies our rules and norms, and women's rights are under frontal assault?

If anything, it feels like the outrage is diminishing.

Most Americans oppose Donald Trump. They know his presidency is a blight. But do most people realize how bad things really are?

Let's start with the classic sign that democracy has failed: Investigating the investigators.


Now consider the advance of new laws criminalizing women's reproductive health and freedom. These laws are unlike anything we've seen and are a step along the path of overturning #RoeVWade. Rightwing extremist Republicans are conducting a full-scale war on women.

Consider the fact that the gun lobby and the GOP have pushed us so far to the right that school massacres are considered a fact of life and we are ARMING TEACHERS. These are outlandish, outrageous things that should never occur in a civilized society.

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,

Franchise Tax Board v Hyatt is the sleeper abortion case you have not heard about. Because, of course, it is not about #abortion.

But the decision - and HOW it is reached - is going to determine how the incoming wave of abortion cases are going to be resolved.

The FTB case came from a tax dispute. A former resident of California sued the California Franchise Tax Board in a Nevada state court, claiming that it had done him all manner of wrongs in investigating his purported tax liability.
California does not want to be sued in another state’s courts. The current law, decades old, allows such suits.

The case has nothing to do with abortion, but everything to do with how to overturn precedent.

The Georgia House just voted to pass the Senate version of #HB481. Now it goes to Brian Kemp's desk for his signature. He should know that women in Georgia and around the country are watching and we will not forget.
The entire debate was terrifying to watch and a glimpse into a dystopian world. #HB481 But thanks to the leadership of so many including @SisterSong_WOC @NARALGA and so many others, we are watching and we must watch.
Rep Setzler said they listened to women's concerns and decided to move anyway with a demeaning and dangerous bill that threatens the public health and enshrines a non-medical definition of when life begins to cements individual women as second class citizens in the law. #HB481

Brian Kemp could sign #HB481 in the next 24 hours effectively banning abortion in the state of #Georgia. This bill makes women who seek abortion criminals facing jail time. Women could be investigated by the police for miscarriages. Watch Sen. Jen Jordan:…
Women could be imprisoned for the use of drugs--even legal, prescribed drugs--while pregnant. This bill is moving while bills to address maternal mortality, rural access to pre-natal care and more languish. The hypocrisy goes on and on and at times leaves me speechless. #HB481
This bill moves while bills to address record high maternal mortality and rural access to pre-natal care languish. Make no mistake, this bill will further criminalize and endanger women of color, low-income, and rural women mostly. Our support is mandated right now 100%. #HB481

The #antiabortion rhetoric is heating up for 2020. In 2016 the #GOP branded #HillaryClinton a baby-killer. Many white and Latina women I interviewed who voted Trump gave this as their reason.

Senate defeats anti-abortion bill, as GOP tries to jam Dems
That same election, #BernieSanders asserted #PlannedParenthood was "Establishment" right after 9 people were shot and 3 killed at a CO PP clinic.

He and other Dems claim we should welcome anti-choice Dems. Sanders has endorsed several. But doing so harms women.
Pretending that a few more anti-choice zealots won't hurt anybody presumes that women aren't worthy of protection. The women who suffer from restricting abortion are poor, young and non-white. These restrictions also make latercterm abortions more likely and no one wants that.

Radical left Are Showing US All Who They Really Are – 'Trojan-Horse' with Agenda to Destroy USA from within by literally attempting to take LIFE, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness away from U.S. Legal Citizens

👇Click Thread👇
1) We are now living in a unique era in USA history. A political party that long ago embraced Radical Extremism on many issues was able to hide this from much of the public with the help of msm that is willing to turn itself into that political party’s propaganda arm.
2) Throughout 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s & even into the 2000s, the Democratic Party was able to keep its 'Mask' of being a pro-American, mainstream political entity firmly in place. Starting with the election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, however, that 'Mask' began to slip.
