Your weekly reminder that the conservative legal movement has no plans to stop at abortion.
BREAKING: A federal judge in Texas has ruled that requiring insurance companies to cover PrEP violates plaintiffs' religious rights. Plaintiffs had argued that PrEP "encourages homosexual behavior." @TheAdvocateMag advocate.com/breaking-news/2… 1/

Tonight, in Mineral Wells, Texas When a @GregAbbott_TX supporter laughs, yes, laughs out loud so everyone could hear, while Beto described the massacre of 19 children and 2 teachers in Uvalde, Beto quite appropriately lets loose with a MF. Yep. It was a pretty good one too.

SCOTUS this week: - Only states can regulate abortion - States can’t regulate firearms - The Environmental Protection Agency can’t protect the environment - States have power over Indian Country - Miranda rights aren’t *really* necessary What an unmitigated disaster.

Almost every long-time genealogist we know has found records like these over the years, in our clients' family trees and in our own family trees. Based on the news that broke tonight, it looks like there will be more records pretty soon.

Don’t lose your sense of outrage. None of this is normal. None of this is acceptable. And most importantly, none of this is inevitable. We can do something about it.
.@ChrisMurphyCT: "I just really worry that there is something rotting in the American core that is making us numb to this slaughter. I think we are on the verge of just thinking that this is normal and losing our sense of outrage."

The map prepared by an unelected, out-of-town special master and rubber-stamped in the dead of night by a partisan Republican judge in Steuben County is a constitutional travesty.

In the coming months we’re going to need more pro-choice city councilmembers, state legislators, and district attorneys working to protect out right to choose. Consider running. We’ll help: bit.ly/ROERUNRFS
