Women are vessels. They’re not citizens. They may not even be human. They have no rights. They exist solely for the purposes of reproduction. That’s what he thinks.

Just heard a program on @NPR that both Islam and Judaism recognize that abortion is an issue to be decided by women/families. Let's everybody convert to one or the other & say SCOTUS can't discriminate against our religion?

via @NYTimes Wherever you live, whatever the risks you face, the most important words in insurance when catastrophe strikes are “full replacement value.” Devastation and heartbreak are easier to manage with money in the bank. I know. nytimes.com/interactive/2022…

via @NYTimes A very nice man. A fun thing about Napa that ppl don’t generally know is that it’s a super small town, or rather a handful of super small towns and everyone knew and knows everyone and has forever from when no one had anything. RIP nytimes.com/2022/05/14/dinin…

When the No. 3 House Republican calls Democrats "pedo grifters" this is a front-page-worthy sign of the party's severe mental illness. NYT doesn't even mention it. WaPo writes "her tweet drew criticism for the insinuation that she may be appealing to promoters of disinformation."

I will miss her bigly.
Just because she's a good person and I want this on my timeline.
I would like to tell @emilylhauser how much I appreciate her comment, but I can’t. Still, I want to share it here.
If your internal organs are open to legislation you are, manifestly, not free.

As a former domestic violence prosecutor in Texas, I can tell you that men will rape and impregnate women trying to get out of violent relationships and will threaten to report them to authorities if they get an abortion. Thus imprisoning women in their own violent hell.

Early voting starts on Monday. A reminder that my name will be listed on the ballot twice. Once for a special election to fill the seat vacated by VP Harris, and once for a full 6-year term. I am doubly committed to continuing to deliver results for the people of California.

A 🧵 for anyone interested in SCOTUS history.
As SCOTUS preps to repeal Roe—despite 72% of Americans favoring Roe—Clarence Thomas says "We cant be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want." SCOTUS has *never* reflected the American people & have often blocked what Americans want Thread 1

As I’m with troops stationed overseas, my heart is also back home with their loved ones.  Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day, and although spouses may not wear uniforms, they serve and sacrifice too. We honor and support you. #JoiningForces

Brain tumors remain the most common cause of cancer deaths in kids, and #DIPG is the leading cause of death from kids brain tumors. There is still no effective treatment & no chance of survival. The median survival time is 9 months from diagnosis. #BrainTumorAwarenessMonth

well, that *was* the legal principle behind the constitutional right to n abortion, anyway ...
