Who here is tired of hearing the #prochoice argument?
"You're in a fertility clinic with only enough time to save 100 embryos or a child."

In this thread, here is why that argument is not valid from any perspective.

Imagine you're a first responder to an emergency like the one mentioned in the scenario above. If the inferno is so great that you could only pick one to save, then it is not likely you be sent into the building, due to risk of structural collapse.…
But, let's just hypothetically ignore those CDC guidelines.

In that case, you would not be sent alone. You would be sent with a full team. The standard procedure is to go into a building with at least a five-person team.

Anyone tired of hearing parasite comparisons from #prochoice'rs?
Read this thread for an effective rebuttal on how to refute this assertion with science and logic.
#ProLife #Science
Let's first understand the logic being applied by the pro choicers.
Their argument is that "because it is growing inside the pregnant person, it is therefore parasite."
Citing one textbook titled, General Parasitology, by Thomas Cheng, it is clear that parasites, by definition, require heterospecific relationships. That means they have to be different species.…

As a Christian clergy who celebrates all the spiritual paths that lead to Love; as a woman who was unable to conceive and who grieved for years; as an aunt and grandmother who thinks children are precious, I am #ProChoice AND #ProLife
There is more than one religion practiced in this nation and no religious point of view should guide our legal processes. In fact Jesus, who is the mentor for my Christian faith, healed a woman suffering with a reproductive issue—a hemorrhaging womb—for twelve years #WomensRights
Jesus' model of compassion and love for those on the margins and those needing healing and health care drives my commitment to health care for all, and my pro-choice position. #WomensRights #ReproductiveRights #LoveTransforms

These are the calls that make me question how seriously wrong we've gone as a culture.
Young woman in early 20s calls. She is just a few weeks pregnant. She wants help figuring out who the father of her child is. Not an atypical request I get.
So I let her know that doctors can only tell with an accuracy of about a week when a woman got pregnant, and it may take til she is much further along for them to get that accurate of a timeframe. So if she had sex with more than one partner within the week timeframe...she may
need a paternity test.

With that info given, she then proceeded to tell me her specific story.

She had sex with her partner during the day one day. She had sex with another guy about 9 hours later, at midnight, and sex with her partner again the following afternoon.

Pro-choice protections also protect unborn babies and allow mothers the freedom to carry a child to birth.

Eugenics, forced sterilization, and forced abortion are a thing.

If the state has the right to force a birth, the have the right to force an abortion.

#ProLife #ProChoice
Laws, in a Rule-of-Law society, gain their legitimacy off of core principals.

Freedom of Religion means that you can both practice (or not) the religion of your choice AND be free from being forced to practice a state religion.
The principal of freedom of choice, where a woman decides whether to bring a fetus to term, means they can abort if they see fit AND they can’t be forced to abort by the state.

Eugenics, forced sterilization, & forced abortion by the state exist (and have existed in the US).

with all the news around about Alabama's abortion ban act, I thought I'd take a look at how Singapore treats abortion in a legal capacity.

my first thought is: Wow our government was super liberal for 1974. (1)
start with the basics:

Any woman can get an abortion in Singapore as long as she is:

1) A Singaporean / wife of Singaporean
2) A foreigner holding a work pass / Spouse holds a work pass
3) has been living in Singapore for at least 4 months before applying for the procedure

of course, there's a caveat that if the woman's life is in danger, fuck it just run the abortion to save her life.

So it would appear that someone in @TwitterSupport has decided to target my account. Normally I would say they wouldn't go after such a small account, but this is the 2nd time in 48 hours.
@TwitterSupport Why me? I'm nobody. You see the other day I had the temerity to say something nice about Jared Kushner in the President's TL - almost immediately they put my account in their "new look" from hell layout. It took almost 12 hours to figure out how to go back to the previous layout.
@TwitterSupport I was about to give up when a good Samaritan who's worth her weight in gold that I am not naming (to protect the innocent) told me about this and viola worked. Oh, but NOT today for me.🤬🤬🤬

@Wtg4Gateau @latimes Protests can be directed to the UC Board of Regents. The LA Times article cites a petition; the petition is only for UC community members, but there is good language in it that describes what a terrible decision it would be to affiliate.
@Wtg4Gateau @latimes I would also protest to CA State Senator and Assembly representatives. Contact the California State Senate here: Contact the California State Assembly here:

@PPFA gripes about the Trump administration's revival of programmatic restrictions for grant recipients of Title X Family Planning funds. No matter how America's abortion superstore howls, the rule is entirely constitutional.
#spendingclause #pursestrings #howfederalfundingworks
@BarackObama liked to taunt, "elections have consequences." One such consequence is that we now have the most anti-abortion-acting President that we have had since the decision in Roe vs. Wade reversed the nation's 170-year history of abortion prohibition.
Notice, I didn't say we now have the most anti-abortion President. I didn't say we now have the most pro-life President. I said the most anti-abortion-acting President.

1.) Es ist doch immer wieder erstaunlich, dass Abtreibungsgegner*innen als Bundestagsabgeordnete oder Bundesminister*innen im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes über Leichen gehen und damit auch noch durchkommen und sogar gewählt werden.
2.) Trotz oder vermutlich wegen ihrer Bigotterie, ihrer Misogynie und ihrer Menschenverachtung. Pfui. Wie widerlich und verachtenswert. Nicht nur die namentlich genannten, sondern auch all ihre Wähler*innen. Allesamt.
3.) Da wäre z.B. Volker #Kauder #CDU
Wäre es nach ihm gegangen, könnten Frauen noch immer straffrei in der Ehe vergewaltigt werden. Er stimmte nämlich 1997 gegen die Strafbarkeit und damit für die Straffreiheit von Vergewaltigern.

15 years ago today, my baby girl died in my arms at 5 1/2 months old after suffering excruciating pain from a rare metabolic syndrome. The gruesome details of the long ordeal I will not go into. After doing everything we could we signed a DNR and took her off life support... 1/

@WorldHijabDay Yea, no, I don't believe that for a second. I've DONE this and not just for a single day. I observed Islamic dress code for 2 weeks in 2002. I wanted to try and understand more about the people that produced the men who murdered my friend.
I covered even in my own home when there was a man not related to me. I wore Hijab and made certain my arms were covered and my clothing was loose. And you know what? It made me feel like I was worthless.
The ONLY positive that came of this experiment was that there were some younger people that ALSO lost friends/family on 9-11 and I was able to show them that (while I was not muslim) not everyone in islamic garb was a terrorist.

In #NewYork a woman can now have an #abortion at any anytime in her #pregnancy. Up to the 9th months

What's next? A law saying you can off you kid after birth

They do it to #babies that come out alive at abortion clinics

These people are pure evil! This pisses me off so much⬇
I want to make a video about abortion on my #YouTube channel but I can't get through finding clips without my eye's watering up. It breaks my heart. I'm a very strong man. I don't cry.

I have a soft spot for #kids. Them being hurt or #murdered eats at me. They are helpless.⬇
We have to stop the #DeepState. Abortion and #ChildTrafficking has to be stopped! This shit can't keep happening.

That is the main reason I'm in this fight. We have to fight for the #children because they can't #fight for themselves. It's on us to #protect them.⬇

Louisiana could lose two abortion clinics this week and here's why...

(with gifs)…
In Louisiana a law was created for "a physician performing or inducing an abortion” to “have active admitting privileges at a hospital that is located not further than thirty miles from the location at which the abortion is performed..." 2/
If this law sounds familiar that's because Texas did the exact same thing but it was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2016. 3/

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

There are some women who get pregnant and don’t want the child for whatever reason (financial instability, maturity, mental illnesses, life endeavors, etc...) and i feel like abortion is an option that shouldn’t be frowned upon.
Ofcourse, there are many people that believe abortion is murder and that you’re going against god’s will or way or whatever. But i honestly feel like it’s not god’s will for a child to be born to starve, or to get abused or neglected.
On another note, there are people that feel like if you aren’t ready to have a child then don’t have sex. And as logical as that may sound... it’s foolishness. Sex is a pleasurable act. Sometimes you don’t want to have sex to procreate. Simple.

We really need to talk more about #abortion as an option for women.
It's hard to say this and hard to hear it for many, but just because you discover you are pregnant doesn't mean you must carry that pregnancy to term. Your decision will last the rest of your life--and the rest of the life of any child you decide to carry to term.
And no, I am not advocating #abortion.
I'm advocating thinking about parenthood & all it entails.
Because once you have a child, you can't just walk away from that life.
And women/girls are talked into maintaining pregnancies every day.
More discussion would change that.
