The reality women of TX now face because of the religious zealots who hold power wish to relegate women to sub-human 2nd class citizens without the right to request life saving medical treatment.

People who try to flee Russia are not conscientious objectors who refuse to kill. They're vatniks who are afraid of being killed but too afraid to rebel. When there are no consequences, Russians wholeheartedly support the genocide of the Ukrainian people.

"I notice that Russian diplomats flee almost as quickly as Russian soldiers." Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba delivers a memorable one-liner in response to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov's hasty exit during a UN discussion on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

"No matter what the law says"...?? no one gets to attack someone, lgbtq or otherwise, just because that person doesn't align, in one way or another, with your demented religiously filtered perception of reality.
Tucker Carlson is openly calling for violence against teachers and LGBTQ+ people: "No parent should put up with this for one second, no matter what the law says. Your moral duty is to defend your children. This is an attack on your children and you should fight back."

Ever wonder how the gop manages to hold power while loosing more & more support of Americans?Gerrymandering. It makes it,although not impossible,very difficult to vote them out. It's why the gop can say absolute absurdities & know they'll be re-elected. invidious.fdn.fr/FMTet2WLp5U

8. Books are the enemy. Nazis: Any book that “acts subversively on our future” must be burned. MAGA: “I think we should throw those books in a fire,” says a Virginia school board member.

7. Christianity is used to legitimize the movement. Nazis: “The party stands for positive Christianity.” MAGA: Trump is described as the “Chosen One” protecting American Christianity.

6. There’s a cult of personality. Nazis: The German army made a pledge of loyalty to Hitler personally. MAGA: Trump’s supporters bill him as “the most moral president” in U.S. history.

2. There’s an obsession with purity of the culture. Nazis: “Racial mixture” was a threat to Aryan culture, Hitler wrote. MAGA: “Great replacement theory” says immigrants threaten white culture.

1. A big lie about treachery is used to foment resentment. Nazis: We didn’t really lose World War I. It was a “stab in the back” by Jews and other "November criminals." MAGA: We didn’t really lose the 2020 election. It was a “steal” by politicians and Blacks in big cities.

With all the arguments over whether MAGA Republicans are fascists, I reread William Shirer’s “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” to see how much the rise of Hitler and the rise of MAGA smell similar. Conclusion: They do. This thread lists 10 ways. Please take a look.

Todd Stephens (R) Rep from PA showing the world what a slimy coward he is. Trying to hide his anti-choice, anti-woman abortion voting record. This woman is my hero! Perfect response to the nonsense demand! @Missy4PA keep fighting, we got your back! Abortion care is healthcare.

This shouldn't be the reality anywhere in the 21st century.
I just spoke to a voter whose close friend is an OBGYN. Because of the Texas #TriggerBan on abortion in effect today, hospital legal had a meeting where they were told—under no uncertain terms—that they are to let mothers die rather than perform life-saving abortions.

This is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. I took particular notice of their use of "god given authority over this nation" & "permanent control of the 7 mountains" phrases. This isn't a "prayer" it's a manifesto. They believe they have a "god given right" to rule.
If this doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will. Christofascist indoctrination ceremony:

Christo-fascists need a reminder that they are welcome to their religion,but they don't have a right to force it on others. How special they feel they are,or if they they feel their god is best of of all the gods is irrelevant.Freedom of religion also means,freedom from religion.

The company has also aligned itself with a once-fringe strand of Christian theology. Dominionism, sometimes called the Seven Mountains Mandate, is the belief that Christians are called on to dominate the seven key mountains of American life. Schools are on the list. 4/

Abortion medications are used to treat incomplete miscarriage and ectopic. When your water ruptured and the pregnancy is previable you need to induce labor even if the baby has a heartbeat or terminate the pregnancy - otherwise you can become septic and die. 3/
