PSA to anyone in FL experiencing a miscarriage:
@Publix is NOT a safe place for your misoprostol prescription if you elect for medical management of your miscarriage.

They will delay your care and refuse to fill your prescription until they can “clarify” the indication for your prescription even when it clearly states the diagnosis is a “spontaneous abortion,” which, by definition, is a miscarriage.

Apparently, pharmacists were directed by @Publix administration to clarify all prescriptions that have the term “abortion” in them even if it already specifies “spontaneous,” and they will read you the fucking FL statute over the phone.

For over a quarter of a century, terms such as “#reproductiverights” and “sexual and #reproductivehealth” have appeared in dozens—perhaps hundreds—of UN resolutions, despite remaining controversial due to their inextricable linkage to the issue of abortion.
In recent years, another term, “#reproductivejustice,” has started to appear, not in negotiated resolutions, but in reports generated by UN agencies like the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).… via @FridayFax
"minority women in the U.S., particularly those who are poor, have historically been targeted by eugenics advocates, through forced sterilizations or... through the aggressive promotion of long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods, some with serious health risks."

We are so PUMPED to be back at House Judiciary committee to hear HB23-1187 Alternative Sentencing for Pregnant People #copolitics

HB23-1187 will ensure that #pregnant people have the opportunity to #alternative sentencing 🔥

@S2SSisters @elephant_circle
We know that pregnancy is contraindicated towards a #healthy pregnancy & being incarcerated while pregnant is harmful to both the pregnant person and the child - #reproductivejustice is what we are fighting for today #copolitics @elephant_circle @S2SSisters
Correctional facilities are not mandated to track or report pregnancy-related data & most facilities do not have any routine process for collecting such information - another reason why we are saying YES on HB23-1187 #copolitics #leadership #reproductivehealth

Patient wants an IUD so we discuss the risks as part of informed consent including: IUDs are >99% effective in preventing pregnancy, but those who do get pregnant are more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy.
"What happens if I get an ectopic, are docs able to take care of me?"
Patients should not have to ask this question. They should not have to wonder if someone will save their life. Ectopic pregnancies can be a life-threatening emergency and are never viable.
Regardless of how many vague and not-based-in-scientific-evidence laws are drafted, we will continue to take care of patients. But physicians should not have to be in that position to wonder if doing what is best for a patient is against the law.

We need to talk about #breastfeeding like the reproductive right, child right, and public health issue that it is.

She’s not buying a tiny house. She isn’t even just feeding her child…

People have medical reasons for wanting breastfeeding that you may not have considered:

- minimizing their own risk of developing cancer or diabetes
- sensory needs
- bonding with a surrogate child, foster child, or adopted child
- trying to keep a sick child alive

This morning we learned that as of September 9th, 2022 the Campaign Life Coalition, a longstanding anti-choice organization, is now a registered third party advertiser in the @ottawacity Municipal Election. What does this mean for voters? Image
Eroding abortion rights and access, the CLC’s main mandate, is on the table as an election issue. In their words, “there is no more important election issue.” It means that now is the time to vote for comprehensive sexual health education, improved abortion access & repro justice
As a third-party advertiser, the CLC is registered to legally run election and campaign-related materials separate from individual candidates. This means that as a voter you might see an increase in anti-choice ads and materials in and around the city.

🧵 Our current Attorney General, Mark Brnovich, has just waged war against Arizona women and our healthcare providers. Brnovich is falling back to a 100+ year old law, which would imprison doctors and others for providing abortion care.
This cannot stand. This will cause irreparable harm to our families, to our economy, to our businesses and to our healthcare providers. But most of all – this will harm women – and especially those women who already face numerous barriers to equitable healthcare.
As your next Attorney General, I will absolutely not allow the arrest or imprisonment of our reproductive healthcare providers, including doctors, nurses, PAs, midwives, pharmacists or others. This is outrageous.

A tragic consequence of #RoeVWade decision that will harm women:

time to talk CANCER during PREGNANCY.

Without abortion access, women with cancer will have an impossible choice: risk delayed cancer care or severe fetal harm

angry ER doc thread... (1/8)


1,000s of pregnant women each year in the US are diagnosed w cancer. These include breast ca, rectal ca, melanoma.

Treatment may require radiation, chemotherapy. But here's the problem....

radiation & chemo can cause great fetal harm in up to 15%-20% cases

what to do?

imagine: you're a pregnant women, excited to have your 1st child. You receive terrible cancer news. And you are told that you need chemo NOW - or you risk the cancer spreading.

But you are told chemo has a big chance of harming the fetus.

If you live in many states....

A 🧵on Climate & Repro Rights:

Taking away #reproductiverights during the climate crisis era is inhumane & is a DIRECT attack on vulnerable populations as #climatechange impacts such as drought & extreme weather already disproportionately affect women & girls.

Here's how:
1. Women are disproportionately impacted by displacement caused by climate change.

2. Heat stress from rising temperatures or food/resource scarcity increases gender based violence.
3. Changes in the natural environment can worsen maternal and neonatal health outcomes. Increased heat, loss of crops, air/water pollution, drought, and salinated water all impact, either directly or indirectly, the nutrition of a mother and her child.

#AbortionIsADisabilityRightsIssue 🧵: I and my spouse are both Little People and both support abortion rights for everyone, but I want to highlight why access is especially important for us dwarfs. First, there is the issue of “double dominance.”
If 2 people with achondroplasia (“Peter Dinklage” dwarfism) conceive, there is a 25% chance the embryo will receive 2 copies of the gene and be “double dominant,” which is incompatible with life. Carrying such a pregnancy to term can be deeply traumatic and should be a CHOICE.
Further, carrying any pregnancy can be risky for a variety of little people. Often, a dwarf body has a narrow birth canal that makes vaginal delivery life threateningly dangerous, along with many other orthopedic issues that raise serious health risks for pregnant little people.

What does "full spectrum" #ReproductiveRights mean?

A #MothersDay2022 educational thread.

🙅🏽‍♀️ Protect the right not to be pregnant if you don't want to be.

Did you know? Most abortions in the U.S. are obtained by PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY MOTHERS.

This: 👩🏻👩🏾‍🦱👱🏼‍♀️ not the face of abortion.
This: 🤱🏿👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👩🏽‍🍼👩‍👩‍👧‍👦…
🤰🏾 Protect the right to decide if, when, how, where, and with whom to give birth

Did you know? Pregnant people are OFTEN hospitalized, cut open, and restrained against their will, and are coerced, ignored, restrained, and shouted at.…

I have a question for #MedTwitter. Yesterday, I saw a large government-focused IG account suggest medical coding for miscarriage should be changed to something other than abortion. The account owner mentioned receiving "so many DMs" from people saying,
"I was devastated to have a miscarriage, and it was like a gut punch to see the word abortion on my medical records." To me, this needs to be solved by eliminating the stigma around abortion. I see this as a societal failure, and it seems like it could be a slippery slope
to suggest changing medical coding for one type of abortion procedure, just because it makes some people feel bad. I responded to the account and said much of this (I didn't talk about it seeming like a slippery slope, yet anyway), and the response I received was:

"The purpose of human rights is to protect human goods. The very suggestion that it could be good for mothers to set them against their own offspring is an insult to women and a setback to the cause of their dignity." #HumanRights #WomensRightsAreHumanRights
"Abortion cannot be a 'reproductive right', because it has nothing to do with enabling people to reproduce. It is not even merely an anti-reproductive right, because rather than just snuffing out fertility, it extinguishes a life." #reproductiverights #reproductivejustice

#Ohio: In an attempt to outlaw all abortions, House Bill 480 was introduced on November 2, 2021 to protect "unborn persons," making it the most extreme bill to move through a state's legislature in the recent string of bans popping up across the country.
Other laws like Ohio’s new “Born-Alive Infant Protection Act” are also on the rise to further restrict #reproductiverights and spread “pro-life” ideologies.
On the other side of the aisle, a group of clinic escorts in Toledo work to protect patients and the freedom to access healthcare.

It is unconscionable that today, in 2021, #SCOTUS is poised to wipe away fifty years of women’s empowerment and rights and return to the days when the state could make pregnant people prisoners in their own bodies, forcing them to carry out the wishes of the state. (1/3)
The only reason we are here, where we fear #SCOTUS taking away a constitutional right, is because of the Right’s packing of the Court. If not for such court packing, we would almost certainly not face this very grim reality where abortion access could soon be taken away. (2/3)
The Supreme Court’s credibility is already in peril. Overturning Roe will confirm that this conservative supermajority is driven not by law or precedent, but by a naked partisan agenda. @acslaw

#Tomorrow the Polish Parliament will debate the ‘Stop Abortion’ bill that would establish a TOTAL BAN on abortion in #Poland and criminalize individuals that receive care. #StrajkKobiet
Poland has long had one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe. It is one of only two EU member states that has not legalized abortion on request or broad grounds.
As attacks on #reproductiverights have intensified in the country, so too have attacks against civil society organizations and women human rights defenders.

I will be introducing a bill inspired by @RepKellyCassidy that requires all inseminators to undergo #vasectomies within 6 weeks of having their third child or 40th birthday, whichever comes first. /1

Additionally, . . .

#ReproJustice #ReproductiveRights #AbortionIsHealthcare
My forthcoming bill will codify the definition of #wrongfulconception to include when a person has demonstrated negligence toward preventing #conception during intercourse. /2

And . . .
. . . this legislation will allow Pennsylvanians to take #civilaction against inseminators for unwanted #pregnancies who wrongfully conceive
a child with them. /3
