ALERT: Twitter blocked our launch video because "abortion advocacy" - the number one issue for women and the issue that this election will hinge on- is banned political speech in twitter promoted posts. #ncpol #abortionrights Image
Elon Musk bought Twitter and declared it a haven for free speech. Since then, hate speech has skyrocketed on the platform. The algorithm throws wild extremism and white supremacy into your feed. But legitimate political campaigns can’t talk about #abortionrights. #ncpol
This policy chills discourse and upholds the status quo, which on July 1st becomes a nonsensical 12 week GOP #abortionban.

For many #ConstitutionalLaw scholars, last years' #Dobbs decision on #AbortionRights at the #SupremeCourt came as a dismaying shock, because it showed conclusively that #conlaw wasn't a realm of ideologically consistent intellectual foment, but rather, a matter of *politics*. 1/ A kraken strangling a coin-...

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.

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.

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.

Unless the United States develops the stomach for a long-overdue reckoning with the white supremacist Christian theocracy that has been unabashed in its destruction of Roe v Wade, abortion rights will not be the only rights it destroyed.… #RoeVsWade
This is a white supremacist Christian movement driven by white supremacist, Christian zealots who are patriarchal to the core.

And plenty of white women have helped build that theocracy… #RoeVsWade
U.S. media tiptoe around all of this because these white Christian zealots are the fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and relatives of white reporters.

It's hard to see theocrats when they look like you…

In 1996, I had an “illegal” abortion in Egypt and in 2000, I had a “legal” abortion in the US. I use inverted commas because the State can fuck off with its opinions about what I can and can’t do with my uterus. That control belongs to me.… #AbortionRights
I was not raped. I was not sick. The pregnancies did not threaten my life. I did not already have children. I just did not want to be pregnant.

I am glad I had my abortions. They gave me the freedom to live the life I have chosen… #AbortionIsHealthcare

The wonderful #PA01 #townhall held by @ashley_ehasz was a great success tonight.

But present outside was #CardboardFitz, a prop from past @FridaysWithFitz events who provided a history of #GOP #MAGAextremist Brian Fitzpatrick's worst votes!

📷 by Steve C.
Thx, Steve!
An oldie but a goodie.

Back in 2017, #PA01 #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick voted YES on the classic #Trump, Paul Ryan and #McConnell's #GOPTaxScam, which forked benefits over to the ultra rich and corporations.
#PA01 Rep. Fitzpatrick may pretend to be #green, but whenever given the choice, he picks his donors (big banks, #fossilfuel corporations) over the #environment.

De-regulating pipelines, opening the #arctic to drilling, etc. He votes with the money, not with the environment.

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!

Very disturbing to see that Gov. Kelly and many political strategists have somehow taken the opposite lessons from the #KansasReferendum on #abortionrights. Voters showed up just weeks ago, in record numbers, to SUPPORT abortion rights. This issue CANNOT be sidestepped! 1/4
Since the #DobbsVJackson decision, Democrats have been punishing the GOP for their anti-choice extremism, regularly outperforming Biden’s 2020 margins in elections across the country, from #NE01 to #MN01 to #NY19. 2/4
Kansas is the ultimate proof-point that when abortion is on the ballot, young people, women, and people of color show up to protect it. 3/4 Image

September 28 is #SafeAbortionDay. Last year, for that day and in solidarity with the right to safe and accessible abortion for all, I finally wrote about my "illegal" abortion in Egypt in 1996 and my "legal" abortion in the U.S. in 2000… #AbortionRights
I use inverted commas because I reject the State’s attempt to control my uterus. I reject its power to declare what is “legal” or “illegal” when it comes to my abortions. The State can fuck off with its opinions about what I can/can’t do with my uterus. That control belongs to me
I was not raped. I was not sick. The pregnancies did not threaten my life. I did not already have children. I just did not want to be pregnant. I did not want to have a child.

#AcademicTwitter Recently Audrey Jaramillo (A24) went on a summer research trip to Argentina, supported by IGL @tufts.

View her #Argentina research trip in pictures. #ICYMI
Artisan mall & a booth at Feria Internacional del Libro de #BuenosAires.

"We even got to pick up some books for our research and the flight back home. This was a great place to find contacts for interviews and local books related to our research," says Audrey. (1)
Meeting with activists from #FuerzaMestiza.

"They call themselves messengers, as they travel to connect with other feminists, record information, about missing womxn, inform others about realities of #femicides through creative work," wrote Audrey. #GBV #ViolenceAgainstWomen

The August 2nd amendment attempts to change our very constitution in order to invalidate the Kansas Supreme Court’s 2019 decision that protected abortion rights in this state.

#ksleg #abortionrights

⬇️ Image
The amendment would give the Legislature unlimited authority to pass restrictions on reproductive rights — or a complete abortion ban, without exceptions.

This includes allowing a bill that was already proposed this past legislative session, which would criminalize all abortions from the moment of fertilization until birth.

Land of the free? Abortion rights demonstrators march in #SanFrancisco #4thofJuly
"July 4th, we're supposedly celebrating freedom in the U.S., but given that #RoeVsWade has just been overturned, that's really called into question," said organizer Magda Cholewinska.
"To the millions of women that are sort of impacted by this decision, are they really free? Like are those women free? I don't think so." #abortionrights

Notiz #Abtreibung, #AbortionRights, #Menschenrecht: Bürgerliches Recht kann jederzeit in best. Verhältnissen der bürokratischen/justizialen Macht zurückgenommen werden. Die "Pointe" ist, dass zwar erkämpftes Recht und universales Menschenrecht im Kapitalismus gerade

Now is a moment where many people will be erasing the vast experiences that trans people have while seeking abortion care. The deliberate decision to remove trans people results in a incomplete story about what this SCOTUS decision criminalizing abortion means. #DobbsvJackson ImageImage
We urge journalists and the public to report with diligence and accuracy. This is not just a matter of inclusion. This is about telling the truth.

#Abortion #AbortionCare #AbortionRights #RoevWade ImageImage
Trans people, especially those who disabled, Black, Indigenous, already face immense violence in medical settings. To erase their experiences only adds to that violence. ImageImage

#BREAKING: Decision on #RoeVWade could be made today

“If Roe v Wade is overturned, know this: We will not give up. We will not stop fighting. We will march to the ballot box in November & we’ll make sure we elect a Congress that enshrines Roe into law”

US Senator @amyklobuchar Image
The US Supreme Court #SCOTUS has overturned #RoeVsWade

Access to #abortion will now be eliminated in more than 20 States, in some cases even if the unwanted pregnancy is the result of rape, incest or brutality.
