If you're interested in abortion numbers post-Dobbs, this thread is for you 🧵
(I'm going to reference some sources, which I'll hyperlink at the bottom of the thread, FYI)
In February I compiled a bunch of data from sources including Texas Health & Human Services, Texas Policy Evaluation Project, the Journal of the American Medical Association, & the US Census Bureau in order to figure out what abortions in Texas looked like post-Dobbs.
Since virtually all the abortion clinics in TX shut down, the obvious question for many would be, "What abortions? It's illegal now. Right?"


I was looking specifically for data on out-of-state abortions and mail-order abortions, and what the data suggested was tragic.

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

Even though #marriage #registration is taken lightly in India, it is one of the most #Important things to be done once the rituals and the parties are over.

Here are the #Benefits of a #registered marriage in India

1. If a #spouse is working abroad and wants to take his or her partner along requires the #marriage #certificate.
The foreign #embassies abstain from issuing a work #permit in the absence of a marriage certificate.
2. #Legal proceedings in case of succession of property to the #spouse are easy.

3. The court requires a #marriage #certificate to transfer #property or #custody of children in case of legal separation.

NEW: Many congratulations to @texmed, @AdamCorley, & @TxRadSociety on launching their *fourth* #NoSurprisesAct #lawsuit against @HHSGov, @CMSGov, @USTreasury, & @USDOL.

This filing challenges the government's decision to impose a 600% increase in administrative #IDR...

...fees and the requirement to batch by the same #CPT code.

⏰ Time is running out, and #regulators must be compelled to stand up and operate a fully-functioning, fair, accessible, & *timely* IDR process, just like the law prescribed.

🧵 December #sanctions targeting Russian fossil fuels ban #EU vessels, insurers & others from facilitating 🇷🇺 crude #oil trades internationally - unless purchased within a #pricecap set by the west.
The west has “hamstrung its plan’s chances of success”, some analysts say, pointing to the absence of major buyers China, India and Turkey in the price cap. Another flaw is that the price cap – set at $60 per barrel – is above the average price for Russian crude 📈
With exports now price-capped for global buyers 🛢️, traders have to prove purchases are #legal: The system is “unenforceable” and “allows European companies to facilitate a trade that is funding the war in Ukraine,” @Global_Witness say.

Past ten months as a business operator in National City, CA.

(tl;dr: 3 Burglaries / 10 Months)

Starring: @alesotelosolis, @NATIONALCITYPD, @JWmetals ?

In April 2022, we moved our business to National City from Otay Mesa.

In the 4 years in Otay Mesa, we had zero incidents.

Within two weeks, there was a burglary for over $100k dollars in assets.

This devastated me emotionally as well as financially.

As someone who has always appreciated the Police Dept, (even in times when they were running out of fans), I knew to call the non-emergency line and file a police report as soon as possible.

The officers were professional and seemed to take my concerns seriously.

On Jul 6, 2021, I filed an Info request to @TheRealPCB under #federal #RTI Act for obtaining information
regarding contracts signed with legal firms to represent PCB at legal forums and copies of contracts signed by #PCB with cricket managers. No response was received from @TheRealPCBMedia @TheRealPCB & I lodged an appeal with @PkInfoCom on 27 July 2021.
in response to my letter, PCB quoted “the magic time frame itself shows that the law at hand is being abused for personal and ulterior motives”. I submitted my argument to @PkInfoCom on 27 Aug 2021 that the response of PCB lawyers is evasive and not satisfactory.

#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)

Les #twitterfiles - un thread sur le contenu des échanges internes chez Twitter autour de sa politique de modération, telle qu'elle se pratiquait jusqu'ici sur la plateforme... #s01e00 #contexte
#contexte #twitterfiles Depuis son arrivée il y a quelques semaines, Musk a viré la moitié du personnel, une autre moitié a suivi après qu'il ait explicité que les vacances et les week end, il fallait désormais faire une croix dessus.
#contexte #twitterfiles Musk a décroché au passage la médaille d'or de la politique RH la plus violente de la Silicon Valley, piétinant au passage moultes législations locales, oubliant sans doute que l'extraterritorialité du Droit américain avait quand même ses limites. Image

¡Buenos días ☀️, por fin es lunes!🗓️ Hoy en los #kiconsejos voy a daros unas pequeñas pistas para saber si cumplimos en nuestra web con la legislación vigente.🌐 #hilo #hilova
Como ya sabrás, si tienes una web, la normativa exige que cumplas una serie de regulación distinta en función de qué actividades tengas en tu web.
Sí, lo sé, el legislador es un plasta y también sé que hay mucho TOC con el tema de la privacidad, una cosa es que te compliquen la vida ( que lo hacen🤷) y otra que pases de cuidar al cliente que entra en tu tienda ( en este caso, online), así que, ¡vamos allá!

You've launched or invested in an MMO game, only to discover that criminals use it to communicate and move illicit funds. All the years of R&D, investment, marketing - only to be compromised by unintended, but arguably foreseeable uses of your platform.

Could this be you? 🧵
(1) If you’re building or investing in a game (esp. a web3 one with tokens and NFTs), do you know what laws and regulations apply to you?
(2) For example, do you have to apply for state money transmitter licenses or register with FinCEN? Do you have to do KYC/AML on your players? How do in-game marketplaces impact this decision? How do the big gaming companies structure their in-game currencies?

26) I have got all the proofs against her and her family and all those who are reading this post will be shocked to know how low my wife and her family can go for the sake of money.
I am worried about my children`s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
