The systematic dismantling of abortion rights is one of the biggest ongoing humani rights crises in this country, and I’m just wondering how long it’s going to be before any of the Dem candidates says the word abortion.

Not just “women’s health.” But the word abortion.
Once they finish dismantling abortion rights. They’re coming for contraception.

Yesterday, I read about a new ✌🏾study✌🏾 from the Charlotte Lozier Institute—the junk science research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List— which concludes that contraception causes abortion.
So yeah. Everything is just going to get worse.
human, not humani

Typos are a human rights crisis too, imo. Dang
Here’s the thing: I have to hand it to the anti-choicers because they spent a decade fabricating research that legislatures will swallow whole cloth in order to pass further abortion restrictions.

And courts won’t question the science because they defer to the legislatures.
20 week bans are unconstitutional now, but I don’t think they will be for very long, because these junk scientists now have study after study after study that show that fetuses feel pain at 20 weeks, even though *actual* scientists and the medical consensus say it’s 24 weeks.
Junk science will win the day eventually.

The federal circuit courts are so conservative now.

And trump is about to dump 100 extremely conservative judges into district courts, i.e., federal trial courts.

I think all abortion rights law is going to be up for grabs.
Anyway, @Hegemommy and I have a piece coming out about this soon.

Sorry to be a buzzkill, but I’m not going to lie to you or sugarcoat it.

Our opportunity to stop this from happening fizzled in 2016, basically.
The only question that remains is what do we do when abortion is criminalized and contraception is banned.

You’ve got to ask yourself what you’re willing to do.

Because it’s coming, y’all. It really is.
And to think— in 2016, we were talking about repealing the Hyde Amendment.

Now we’re talking about Texas wanting to execute pregnant people who get abortions, and states passing near-total abortion bans in droves.

What a difference 3 years makes, eh? #TeamLegal
