I've been thinking about this terrible, brutal thing being done to women who want an #abortion in #Missouri. It's really unconscionable to treat women and girls this way.
1/
Everyone who wants an abortion --NO exceptions, so that includes rape victims like I was, girls who have been incested, women whose birth control failed, women who already have more kids than they can handle--has to have this vaginal exam first, before they can be approved.
2/
An internal exam. With a speculum AND fingers.

Let me tell you that this is awful.
Every woman hates these exams.
It's a violation.
And it's one thing when your doctor has to check for fibroids or do a PAP test. But this is just to humiliate and demean and violate.

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

Morning, all -

Please be aware, the Missouri state senate has passed a bill (24/10) banning abortion at 8 weeks, with no exceptions for rape and incest

It's headed back to the House, and Governor Parson will 100% sign.

npr.org/2019/05/16/723…
Things we can do right now:

1. Donate to @PPSLR. They are the ONLY clinic providing abortions left in the state. This was true as of February 2019.

Donate link here: plannedparenthood.org/health-center/…

News story here: kcur.org/post/missouri-…
2. Missouri pals - I'm going to write a few scripts for you shortly. If you need it customized, let me know. We're going to help make sure everyone has their say against this bill.

3. As I've said before: start looking into adopting a 2020 Senate candidate now.

It makes me physically ill that this article becomes more relevant as time goes on. #AlabamaAbortionBan #Georgia
I think you misunderstood the article.

Accusing me of spreading child pornography is a bit much - but at least it’s a new hot take perspective on my work that no one has yet offered.

A+ for originality.

Friends,

I have a serious update for you.

As many of you know, I filed two lawsuits to fight political corruption in Missouri. #moleg #mogov #missouri
I filed the first in June 2018. I sued a fake charity that our former Governor used to hide the names of political donors. I filed a second one in October 2018 after our current Governor refused to freely turn over communications between our government and dark money operatives.
I’ve been fighting these cases on my own, sometimes from the trunk of my car. In my laptop bag, I carry a long receipt from a printshop. It’s for $576.52, the cost to print evidence for just one hearing I’ve funded this past year.

The @FBI General Counsel @DanaBoente has proven to be a key player in the Trump Admin.

Few, however, are aware of the many crucial positions he has held—and why he may have held them. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/dana-boentes-m…
During President Trump’s first 2 years in office, Boente served as the Acting #AttorneyGeneral, Acting Deputy Attorney General, Acting Head of @TheJusticeDept's #NationalSecurity Division, and currently serves as the @FBI’s General Counsel.
To more fully understand Boente’s role, we need to go back to Jan. 13, 2017, when President @BarackObama issued a last-minute #ExecutiveOrder that altered the line of succession within #DOJ.

🌀Suspense🌀

Suspense for Mueller Rpt

Is Barr playing a highly sophisticated game, signaling he is a paragon of fairness to Trump b/4 he lowers the boom?

Or will he join the likes of Miller, Mulvaney, Pence & Mnuchin as the latest incarnations of Haldeman, Ehrlichman & Colson?
🌀Suspense2🌀

Threads from the Mueller probe could continue to yield new evidence & even more charges for months, if not years, to come — tied to everything from Russian interference in the 2016 election to the hush-money payment scheme Trump’s campaign to the Inauguration.
🌀Suspense3🌀

📌RU interference & hush money scandals were designed to help sway the last White House race, from the fundraising for Trump’s 2017 inauguration to unregistered foreign lobbyists working in the U.S.

📌”The Mueller report was just the first step.”

The Missouri House just voted to allow hidden, loaded handguns on all state public college campuses, including students, faculty, staff, visitors - despite overwhelming opposition and research that shows more people carrying more guns in more places does not make us safer. #moleg
Missourians should be outraged. The bill to allow guns on campus now moves to the #Missouri Senate, where @MomsDemand volunteers will have another chance to stop it. But we will need your help!

Tell your Missouri friends and family to join us. Text READY to 644-33. #moleg
And tell friends and family in Missouri to send an urgent message NOW to their lawmakers telling them to oppose any attempt to allow guns on college campuses: every.tw/2OYrh4V #MOLeg

A thread by @dearinterwebs #moleg #SB279 #SB139 #SB345 #SB312 #TrustWomen👇
“I have been trying to think about how to explain what happened yesterday in the #Missouri Senate Health and Pensions committee. I have testified in Jefferson City three times....
Twice in the Senate and once in the House. Last year I testified in the Senate, and while I was called “distasteful” by the Representative from the House who was sponsoring the anti-choice bill for saying the word “fetus”, the general tone was respectful....
Kind of weird, but respectful. [This time] was a different story.

While the Senators did not really ask questions of people/parents like me who were testifying – they mostly looked bored while we testified about our most personal, private, and heartbreaking moments....

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.
