I'm deleting these tweets about #abortion of the severely disabled; people are getting the wrong idea and not listening to what I am actually saying.

People who are already born should be free to live out their lives in peace, and that is an important safeguard on society.
I have no conflict with people who want to preserve that safeguard, but I do disagree about abortion, especially when the idea is to force people to carry children that they don't want, and who are also going to burden us all; that's bad.
"Carry this disabled child to term because my religion says so!" is a really bad idea, and it is an example of things that are bad on purpose, which i think is now the main thing that holds humanity back.

#OrangeTheWorld - A thread on reproductive control, coercion and entrapment 🧵

As a #trapped populations scholar, I have lately spent a lot of time thinking about reproductive #coercion, #control and #entrapment. (i)
The #familycourts appear to fail to understand, acknowledge and interrupt these dynamics of #coercivecontrol in their current system. (ii)
Many perpetrators of #coercivecontrol will already begin to put pressure on or introduce the idea of a child during the early love bombing phase. (iii)

This mornings rant is for ppl that keep losing ppl.

Or, ppl that keep losing ppl & there never seems to be time to process all the death, or for the people that constantly live in grief since they were young cause people are always dying.

And for Olivia E. #mourning #death
Olivia passed away the other day. Some sent me a screen shot on a story about someone saying goodbye. Apparently it happened last week.

Like all of us I rush to her social media “no way” I think. Looking for an obituary cause we live far from home now. #Minneapolis
My mind floods - which isn’t about Olivia - it’s about losing many friends and chosen family to these common killers 1) fetanyl 2) suicide 3) homicide.

My bias tells me it’s surely 1 of the 3. B/c I’ve lost more ppl to the top 2 - around 15-20 to be exact. #suicide #fetanyl

BREAKING: #BNNFrance Reports.

This Thursday, the National Assembly passed a draft that would add the right to an abortion to the Constitution, with 337 voting in favor and 32 voting against. #Law #Abortion #France
The bicameral French Parliament's upper house (the Senate), as well as a referendum of the French people, must both approve the proposed text before it may become law.
By altering the 1958 Constitution, this approval aims to ensure adequate and equitable access to the legal right to a voluntary abortion.

We need to talk about women being pressured into abortions.

The European Court of Human Rights will rule today on a case where three women in a psychiatric institution were forced to have abortions against their will.

#ECHR #abortion #humanrights
Last month, the court ruled in a case where a 20-year-old had been forced to have an abortion by her parents, also against her will. The court strongly condemned this as a breach of human rights:
Forced abortion, they said, is
"an egregious form of inhuman and degrading treatment which had not only resulted in a serious immediate damage to her health – that is the loss of her unborn child – but had also entailed long-lasting negative physical and psychological effects."

JUST IN: #BNNNetherlands Reports.

Thousands of runners march in The Hague against abortion, and are met with counter-demonstrations.

Today is the annual 'March for Life' in The Hague, with which the anti-abortion movement Scream for Life protests abortion.
Several thousand people walk the route, which passes by the House of Representatives and the Hofvijver.

A dissenting voice, including that of BNNVARA, can also be heard through a 'involuntary sponsor run' opposing abortion movements.
Before the march, there was a protest on the Malieveld with various anti-abortion activists speaking. In addition to the Malieveld, the Collective Free Choice staged a counter-protest.

Election results say educated single women voted heavily Democrat, with #abortion a major issue.
It's understandable single women support those who support abortion. People tend to vote their self-interest, and single women have to fend for themselves and put careers first, so pregnancy gets in way.
But abortion is itself just a symptom of a greater issue, which is how we see ourselves and our relationships with others, including God (for those who believe). It's hard to love others when we struggle to love ourselves, and modern society makes it hard to do either one.

A challenge to the government's legal authority to establish full abortion services in Northern Ireland has been put on hold until the new year. #Abortion #Health #NI
The challenge began in the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, but was adjourned so government lawyers can deal with newly introduced arguments. A new hearing date has been set for 23 January.
The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (Spuc) argues it should be for Stormont to decide on the issue.

1/ Here is an #ElectionDay thread about #Catholics and #democracy. You should read it all but here is the TLDR headline: Catholics have done our part to bring US politics to this point, and we need to fix it.

Let's begin with a long view.
2/ The #CatholicChurch spent 1900 years avoiding #democracy, quite comfortable with empire and monarchy. The closest the church ever got was the Council of Basel (1431-1449) that followed something like democratic procedure to challenge papal supremacy, suggested a conciliar...
3/ ...approach to the governance of the church. It did not succeed.

A century earlier Marsiglio of Padua had praised ideas very close to popular sovereignty & he remained "the accursed Marsiglio" into the 19th century.

Very little in Catholicism has pointed to #democracy.

Because no one else will say it out loud about Democrats, Biden and womens equal rights (the #ERA), I’m starting a thread that I hope goes viral because it will educate people enough to pressure the president to do his fucking job this year.
@POTUS #Biden is completely responsible for the #abortionbans in several states. It’s true. Here are the facts. By the numbers, so use a number if you want to argue back:
1. The #ERA is the 28th amendment to the #Constitution but #Biden refuses to allow the National Archivist to publish it — at least not before the #midtermelections

Common pro-abortion "arguments" that come up repeatedly:
1. Don't like #abortion, don't have one
2. Pro-lifers don't care about born people
3. It's just about controlling women
4. How many kids have you adopted?
5. Children in foster care justifies killing some in utero.

Many states have banned abortions & the GOP is working on a national ban. So many think this will never affect them or their loved ones. They’re wrong.

Please, read, pass it on, & #vote.

1. This is @HaylieGrammer’s late-term #abortion story. She gave her blessing to share it.
2. “5 years ago, I gave birth to my daughter, Embree. She weighed 4lbs 4oz & was born with a tumor the size of a volleyball. Embree lived 25 minutes. We learned about the tumor only weeks before.
3. The tumor was sucking her blood, pushing her organs, deforming her body, & overworking her heart. In the 5 weeks we'd known about it, the tumor grew from the size of a walnut to the volleyball. Those 5 weeks were the hardest of my life.

The Abortion Problem for Republicans and its ONLY Honest Solution


Democrats are laughing at us on the right, ever since the overturning of Roe v Wade. I don't blame them, and I don't take offense.
2) The problem is quite simple to identify. Since 1972, we on the right have vastly more than not, gotten the entire question of abortion wrong. The label 'pro-life' isn't bad, but it misses the key issues by the proverbial country mile, the American mile. I'll list them next...
3) The first problem is that we're NOT merely pro-life. And who isn't? We're in favor of, we believe in the RIGHT to life. This has far too often been missed.

Second, we have more than not missed the basic question of when life starts, and when human rights imbue.

Hi all!
It's a 10 minute warning on the start of #Democrat Congressional candidate in #PA01, @ashley_ehasz's #townhall on #ReproductiveFreedom and the role of Congress.

You can watch here:

We'll be live tweeting the whole thing!
If you attended the @ashley_ehasz #PA01 #townhall in person, you'd have seen this (#Antichoice #GOP extremist Brian Fitzpatrick) cardboard guy out front.

That's as close as any version of Fitz would get to a town hall. He sprints away from unscripted constituent contact!
In case you want a run down of the legislative goods on #GOP #Antichoice extremist Brian Fitzpatrick of #PA01, here's the rundown...

The TL;DR is that Brian Fitzpatrick has ALWAYS voted AGAINST #AbortionRights.

He's no moderate, don't drink the Kool-aid on that!

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.",...

After the Supreme Court issued #Dobbs some Muslim supporters of Roe v. Wade mocked the idea that Roe's extreme liberalization of #abortion led to promiscuity and contributed to the very problem that liberal abortion law purports to solve. And more fornication & more abortions. 🧵
But let's take a look at the Indiana lawsuit filed last month by the ACLU on behalf of a Muslim woman claiming that Indiana's new restrictive law on abortion violates her religious freedom because she follows the lenient position that Islam allows abortion before 120 days. 2/9
Indiana's law bans all abortions except if there’s a lethal fetal anomaly & in cases of rape & incest up to 10 weeks. The Muslim plaintiff in the ACLU suit says that violates her religious freedom as she believes Islam allows abortion before 120 days for any reason. 3/9

"Today, I rise to remind you that #SomeoneYouLove has had an #abortion.

I had to end a much-wanted pregnancy due to a diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy. There was no chance for the fetus to live, & if no action was taken, I would have died, also." — Sen. @rosemarybayer #MILeg 1/
@rosemarybayer “I’m grateful that Roe was in place so my doctor could do what they needed to do to protect my life and any future life I might create.”

"There are many other reasons to need an #abortion with devastating consequences without having that option — physical health, mental health, financial health — life itself can be at risk if we take this option away. "

So there are a few things that I want to cover today. It has to do with #Cuba🇨🇺 & the new #FamilyCodeLaw #CodigoDeLasFamilias #CodigoSi & why the Extreme Right Wing of the #CubanDissidents & #CubanExiles are against it #LGBTQRightsAreHumanRights #CubanConstitution #Socialism
So first what is #ElCodigoDeLasFamilias Or the #FamilyCodeInCuba. First we need a small lesson in #Socialism. #Marxism teaches that we need to use #Science & Common Sense to advance society.
Common sense says if you want a #Democracy to advance and flourish, you need to improve it with scientific precision. So, #Marxist countries make it very easy to have what is known in America as a #ConstitutionalConvention. Aka whenever they come up with something better for

Today, the #Hungarian government has issued a decree which will require doctors to present women requesting an #abortion with fetal vital signs before proceeding with the procedure. 1/4 (Thread) 👇
2/4 Though the decree will be hard to put into practice, this is a clear sign that the Orban government wants to appease the far right who have requested the change for some time.
3/4 Hungary’s abortion laws are considered liberal (can be administered until the 12th week) and this is the first time they have been changed since 1992. The Fundamental Law also states “life should be protected from the time of conception”

It is with sadness that I share with you all today that I will be closing my specialized family medicine practice in November.

I have been offered a #surgicalabortion role in BC!
Surgical abortion opportunities like this are limited (sometimes more so for family docs) and I knew that I had to take the leap. The Ottawa #OBGYN team was so dedicated to my surgical abortion learning and I want to maintain those skills.

I have training I want to use.
My clinic will continue to accept some referrals as outlined by faxes sent to clinics in the surrounding area. Patients can still self-refer for #contraception, #pap smears, and #abortion care.
