As a Trauma Surgeon and survivor of #GunViolence I cannot believe the audacity of the @NRA to make such a divisive statement. We take care of these patients everyday. Where are you when I’m having to tell all those families their loved one has died. @DocsDemand #Docs4GunSense
Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane. Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control. Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves. nraila.org/articles/20181102…

En México, el Bicentenario de la Consumación de Independencia coincide con otros eventos históricos de suma importancia, como la fundación de México-Tenochtitlán hace 700 años. Sinceras felicitaciones de nuestro país al suyo. ¡Viva México!

Not a dry eye in the "Virtual Room". Dr. Gordan was a phenomenal surgeon and her life was tragically cut short. We will always remember her and her legacy of Surgical Excellence lives on.
Beautiful tribute by Dr. Scantlebury (@scantlv) honoring the EXTRAORDINARY life of Dr. Sherilyn Gordon. Her life & legacy will live on FOREVER. To learn more on intimate partner violence please use this excellent @AmCollSurgeons resource: facs.org/member-services/ipv… #SBAS2021WashU

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I will ALWAYS be a brick wall against Republicans like Glenn Youngkin who want to ban abortion here in Virginia.

Is anyone surprised that a twice-impeached traitor issued a statement today in support of the January 6 insurrectionists?

As governor, I was damn proud to be a brick wall against Republican attacks on reproductive rights. I will NEVER stop fighting for the right to choose. #VAGov

Folks, I hope I made you proud out on the debate stage tonight. But we don't have time to celebrate -- early voting starts TOMORROW. The stakes are high and with a race this close we need your help to match Youngkin's resources. Chip in right now: secure.actblue.com/donate/tr…

.@GlennYoungkin REFUSES to answer the question “will you sign LEGISLATION to BAN ABORTION.” He has skirted the question 3 times. On tape he said he would ban abortion and defund planned parenthood. #VAGov

Glenn Youngkin would remove vaccine requirements for state employees, teachers, and health care workers. That is the wrong approach. We need EVERY eligible Virginian to get vaccinated to beat back this virus. #VAGov
