Women: when you vote next month, vote so that no man can either tell you what to do with your body, or take away your health care rights. Men: vote to support all the women in your life that you love, and demonstrate that you trust their competence to make their own decisions.

Abbott banned abortion in cases of rape. Last night, he told victims of rape that they’ll be fine because he’ll give them “baby supplies” after forcing them to give birth to their rapist’s child. This election is about ending Abbott’s attacks on women. We are voting him out.

It’s so horrible how many scams you have to avoid all day long. Phone calls almost useless. Emails are insane. Politicians hitting you up in txts. Can’t imagine what it’s like if you’re elderly, alone, didn’t grow up with the Internet & distrust of communication your whole life.
