    Our Abortions, Our Stories

    The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and eliminated the constitutional right to abortion. A majority of justices ruled to throw away nearly 50 years of precedent and take away the right to control our bodies and personal health care decisions.

    Even before Roe v. Wade was overturned, many people didn’t have access to abortion.
    We need to talk about abortion loudly and proudly. You can help by speaking out about what abortion means to you and how it has made a difference in your life. Every abortion story is valid, #WhateverTheReason.

    Law Catches Up To 2020 Right-Wing Election Scammers As 2022 Sees New Intimidation Tactics

    Here: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tj_Vo-U9rIE)

    Rachel Maddow catches viewers up on the cases against right-wing political activists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman who tried to intimidate Black voters with a robocall ahead of the 2020 election, and looks at new right-wing voter intimidation tactics for the 2022 election that are already being taken to court.

    • October 25, 2022 at 2:47 pm

      Rachel Maddow Turns Up The Heat On Kevin McCarthy And Mitch McConnell For Staying Silent About GOP Voter Intimidation

      “Maddow asked Elias, “The defendants in this case include one of these sort of
      anti-voting rights pressure groups that that have sprung up all over the country in recent years and have been particularly energized since the 2020 election.
      I wanted to ask you about the role of the various Republican
      elected officials who have bolstered what these groups are doing. We have the Republican candidate for secretary of state. The Republican candidate for governor. At least, two that I know of, sitting Republican state senators who are pushing this. Who are encouraging people to turn out and be vigilantes at voting sites. I wonder if you see some of these Republicans as bearing some of the same responsibility here?”

      Elias answered, ” Absolutely. Republicans from top to bottom blame responsibility. Where is Mitch McConnell calling this out? Where is Kevin McCarthy calling this out? Where are the so-called responsible leaders of the Republican Party saying, having armed vigilantes at the polls, preventing people from casting their ballots in a legal way is wrong and they’ll denounce it. Where are they? It’s not just the Kari Lakes, the state legislators in Arizona. It is from top to bottom a party that has abandoned democracy and all semblance of decency. ”

        “Voting rights lawsuits are essential, but the best way to defeat voter intimidation is not to be intimidated.

    Remarks by President Biden at a Democratic National Committee Event

    “Republicans are doubling down on their mega MAGA trickle-down economics that benefits the very wealthy. It failed their country before and will fail it again if they win.

    Democrats are lowering your everyday costs like prescription drugs, healthcare premiums, energy bills, and gas prices.

    Democrats are making sure the biggest corporations begin to pay not their fair share..

    We’re investing in all of America, reducing everyday costs while also lowering the deficit at the same time…

    • October 26, 2022 at 12:10 pm


      “Look, folks, Democrats are going to protect Social Security and Medicare. Republicans have been very clear: They’ve stated boldly that they want to cut Social Security and Medicare and — to the point that they’ll shut down the government, they say, and send the nation into default, which raises prices for everyone, if we do not cut Social Security and Medicare. I ain’t gonna do it. ”

      Democrats are going to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms like the right to choose, the right to privacy, the right to vote — our very democracy. Republicans have already introduced legislation that will ban abortion with no exceptions to rape or incest or the life of the mother, in many places.”

      At the same time, Republicans are threatening to take away the constitutional right to marry the person you love. ”

      “Republicans in Congress are still preventing funding we need to stay vigilant and ahead of the next virus. They’ve refused the funding. But we no- — we’re not going to relent.”

      Together, we carried out one of the biggest public health efforts in the history of this country. ”

    Texas schools send parents DNA kits to identify their kids’ bodies in emergencies

    After the mass shooting in Uvalde, the kits are making many parents feel even more anxious about sending their children to school.

    • October 26, 2022 at 1:17 pm

      imo, some of my takeaways from their interview about TX:

      Highest GUN DEATHS in all the land, with gun violence the leading cause of death.
      Highest number of RAPES, but you can go to prison for trying to get an abortion.
      Mortality crisis for new mothers, many times worse for women of color.

      5 worst gun massacres just in the last 5 years, yet one can carry in public.

      Giving out DNA kits
      so you can ID your child
      after being blown to pieces by an AR-15
      which can be obtained from a pawn shop.

      22 weeks since Uvalde. 19 children dead and Governor Abbott has done nothing, refused to raise gun age. (Also remembering how families of the deceased have been silenced.)

      Obvious changes could be made: Raising purchase age to 21 years and background checks are common agreement among gun owners. Also red flag laws.

      The obvious: Majority of Texans DISAGREE with the extreme abortion ban and want gun reforms.

    (New York Jewish Week) — In a new political ad, Sen. Chuck Schumer gives constituents a Yiddish lesson while lauding some Democratic victories and decrying some Republican actions of the last term.

    The thirty-second ad is titled “Yiddish Lessons with the Senate Majority Leader.”

    “Let’s start with an easy one: schmos,” the New York Democrat says in the ad. He gestures to an animated blackboard where a chalk drawing of former President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Ted Cruz appear. In parentheses, the blackboard translates schmos as “jerks.” Jaunty klezmer music plays in the background.
    Schumer goes on to teach the Yiddish words shande (shame) in referring to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. He uses mishegas (insanity) to describe “the horrible games those MAGA Republicans play.”

    The Normalization Of Untruths’ Worries Dr. Fauci More Than GOP Threats

    Responding to news of police investigating bizarre, hateful flyers that mix anti-Semitism with Covid conspiracies, Dr. Fauci talks with Alex Wagner about “the normalization of untruths” as being more worrisome to him than personal attacks from Republican politicians.

      Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director, National Institution of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden speaking to Alex Wagner:

      “Well I think it’s pretty obvious Alex, it’s purely politically motivated.
      They’re running on that. They’re raising campaign money.
      They pick out a boogey man who they feel represents the antithesis of what they want. And if you look at what I’ve been doing, focusing like a laser for almost now 3 years, is to protect the health and the safety of the American public. By getting people vaccinating, by having them practice good public health practices.
      They construe that as somehow or other being an encroachment upon their freedom, when we know things like vaccines have already saved millions of lives. And yet when you talk about getting vaccinated and encouraging people to get vaccinated. Or when you have a very high level of virus in the community, to encourage people to to wear masks – which are well known to protect you from getting infected – they make that a political issue. Nobody likes to see that kind of thing said about you, but I don’t pay hardly any attention to that. And I just focus on my job, which is to make sure we ensure the health of the American public.”

    How our inability to change America’s most important document is deforming our politics and government.

    “What effect is that having on American politics and government? Consider the Electoral College. Proposals to reform or abolish the Electoral College have been introduced in Congress more than seven hundred times since 1800, and electing the President by popular vote has enjoyed a great deal of popular support for the past half century or so. In 1967, sixty-five per cent of Americans were in favor of it. And support has remained at about the same level ever since—with the exception of a notable dip in 2016.

    The Problem of Marjorie Taylor Greene

    • October 27, 2022 at 1:27 pm

      Marjorie Greene, white nationalist, aka “christian nationalist” is no friend of women.
      Except for the worst kind of corporate powermonger who will do whatever to stay in control. Yet another tool for the KOCHs riling up their dupes to vote the way they want. For how long has religion been used to prop up the rich in power?
      Greene doesn’t care about women’s reproductive rights, gun rights, or who gets killed (inside/out of the Capitol). Probably a Putin follower in favor of getting rid of Democracy and putting her lord and master trump in charge. Protected by her god who loves riches, hateful to all but white nationalists. Remembering how…trump executed as many people as possible on his way out of office.
