1/ In today's broadcast of "Lies #MOLeg Tells About Abortion in Missouri" let's talk about if abortion is dangerous/unsafe in this state. Uninterested in a long tweet? Here's the punch line: Abortion is safe! For those of you who like numbers because #FactsMatter read on.
2/All information on this tweet is publicly available at health.mo.gov/data/vitalstat…. The most recent data is from 2017. From DHHS' website you can find this quote: "Complications were associated with 1.9% of Missouri abortions." There were 3,903 abortions in Missouri in 2017.
3/Now this includes "20 failed abortions" but what does that really mean? Well Missouri requires that any time a pill abortion fails that it is reported to state. But is this really a "complication" or just part of the known profile of taking a pill abortion? Let's ask #ACOG!

“There is great misunderstanding about the actual meaning of having the right to an abortion. A lot of this misunderstanding is pushed by well-meaning liberals so I want to discuss it…Long essay ahead.”

The right to abortion is NOT about the right to not be a parent. Women already have the right to not be a parent through adoption & safe haven laws in some states

Abortion is specifically about the right to NOT be pregnant/endure child birth.
This is the right to bodily autonomy
Reproductive labor is not only a biological function, it is also the base form of labor for all economic systems.

Economies cannot function [are not sustainable] if women are not constantly producing new humans.

[Examle: the concern in Japan for declining birth rates.]

#racism

whites also enacted a system designed to keep blacks in debt to keep control of the community
(familiar)?

so, black farmers gathered at church to unionize

Dear @SenatorCollins, You keep saying you’re hearing “nothing” from constituents about #Kavanaugh. I invite you to come back home and actually spend some time in #Maine- and see the incredible community fighting his nomination. 1/9
For someone who repeatedly promised Maine women you would protect our rights - and earning the @PPact endorsement - how do you explain the 76% of women who OPPOSE his nomination? 2/9
And why are you letting the White House papers - of his “most formative years” (his words, not mine) not be released? Where’s the anger? 3/9
