Thank you @DAvallone for telling the story of you brave mom— it is because of Woman like her that woman like me have been afforded the right to bodily autonomy for most of my life
I want to remind people what illegal, back alley abortions look like— the consequences that comes with this power grab of #WomensRights

Men have been accusing us of hysteria for hundreds of years for deigning to speak up for our rights. I have spent much of my adult life arguing against the hysterical label, explaining how sexist it is. At this point fuck it. Damn straight I'm hysterical #StopKanavaugh /1
I'm hysterical because this accusation has always been used to control women. We were burned at the stake for being witches, put in sanatoriums, had forced hysterectomies & oophorectomies, were sterilized, & we're too emotional to decide if we want an abortion #SaveRoe /2
I'm hysterical because our pleas were dismissed and ignored for the past 3 years. We were deemed dramatic, silly, and too focused on "women's issues" because we begged people to listen to our rational fears that Roe could be overturned #StopKavanaugh #WhatsAtStake /3

We must demand @SenateDems, @SenSchumer use #NoQuorum to delay #SCOTUS confirm. hearings.
Why?
> @WhiteHouse is witholding 100K pages on Kavanaugh's time in Bush WH. What are they hiding?
> New guilty plea in #Mueller probe 8/31. We must block confirmation b4 probe is complete.
How to fight this...
1. Call AND write yr senators every day, whether Republicans or Dems. Ask others to do the same. Demand there be no confirmation hearings before we see where the criminal probe of @realdonaldtrump leads.

call 202-224-3121 or text resist to 50409 - it's easy
2. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper voicing your opposition to Kavanaugh and explain your reasons why,
incl the new information about indictments in the ongoing criminal probe
AND
the failure to release pertinent Kavanaugh files

The most disingenuous argument for abortion is, "my body, my choice."

Don’t #SaveRoe (thread)
When a woman decides to kill her child, that decision infringes on a child's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Abortion says the rights of stronger and louder women trump the rights of those who can not speak.
If someone doesn't want bad breath, they brush their teeth.
If they don't, they've made the decision to have bad breath.

In the same way, if a woman makes the decision to be sexually active, she shouldn't be surprised by the result of life in her womb.

While #SaveRoe is trending, I'd like to tell you the story of my grandmother. She is 92, grew up in East LA, raised two daughters on her own, worked in a factory for over 40 years, is Mexican and Catholic. She is staunchly pro-choice. When I was a teenager, I asked her why
"Because I've seen the alternative," she told me. I learned that her mother was one of the people women in the neighborhood would turn to out of desperation. My grandmother would assist. "That needs to happen in a clinic, without fear of being arrested, w the right equipment"
"I will never forget what it looks and feels like when an abortion goes badly and there are no alternatives. I'm good with God on this one," she said. So yeah, #SaveRoe
