we respect womans right to privacy with her doctor. Those people are not pro-life, they are pro-birth; there is a huge difference. We are the party who seeks reduction in pregnancy terminations by expanding sex education, access to contraceptives, universal healthcare, etc.
To any pro-birth members on DU (if they exist), I would say this: those people wont stop at banning abortion, they will seek to restrict access to contraception and continue on a path making women unequal. This fight was never about life, it is about womens role in society. If men could get pregnant, this would never become an issue or even a discussion.
Also, the moment those people are able to swing RW justices to their side, would mean that a woman who is unable to get safe abortion in the US must travel to Canada to do that; she would be a subject to manslaughter charges upon return.
USSR at one point expermented with banning abortion after WWII when they needed to boost births. The result was - huge countrywide infertility problems due to massive number of unsafe abortions. Even in todays authoritarian russia, abortion remains legal and I think it is for that reason (history).
I think if McCaskill and Donelly voted for kavanaugh, they may have won tonight like Munchin who won in the trumpiest of places in the universe. 50 states strategy no matter what, say and do what you need to win. Incremental steps until those states become bluer.
just finished it. Very nice account of the largest intelligence operation in the history of the world.
What annoys me is how people like manafort, felix, jared kushner, wilbur ross or even trump himself avoided criminal investigations all these years getting away with serious crimes? This is as much success of FSB/GRU as it is collosal failure of US intelligence and US justice system.
Interestingly, Comey wasnt mentioned in the movie.
Its painfully clear that manafort wont say a word for the sake of his family safety. Id watch what will happen to gates and papandopolus or their families.
Putin has lots of hacked info on repubs, if they turn on trump - they only have two options: resign or face embarrassing primary defeat.
If you think about it, Omarosa is actually helping trum by making media focus on the N-word instead of money laundering and conspiracy w/Putin.
Love this program. Anyone else watches? Tons of clips available on youtube. This show has been an effective therapy for me when I feel despair under trump.
Great new show on Fox, a true hidden gem. Renewed for Season 2. Late 1980s NYC perfection. Out of this world cast - black real-life transgender women actors in leading roles and acting is superb.
Even F news turning on trump; we need to seize this moment and make the most of it. Because chances are, the media will move on to the next breaking news as soon as next week. And Mueller needs to act now, before some false flag attack happens (Bolton is a proponent of fals flags).
I had an interesting encounter while doing a photoshoot in city park for an immigrant family who just became citizens. The theme was American flag. Different poses, like holding in front, or placing it on the ground in front and just trying different things with it. A teenager was passing through while biking and (kinda rudely) intervened: Isnt there a rule that you cant put it on the ground?!. Do you think it was a MAGA person or it was my bad and I should have known better? I am truly not sure, the family was obviously demonstrating American pride but they were asian and speaking Chinese among themselves so I dont know if it played any role. I felt like I got schooled by a teenager.
Simply the best sci fi Ive seen in years because it is extremely realistic and thought provoking. Ive never really thought about possibility of hacking self driving cars and the outcomes. Really thought provoking movie, the pace of technology has acelerated in recent years thanks to machine learning and we saw what happens when technology gets into bad hands with our own election system.
saw it last night, loved EVERY moment. Cant remember last time I liked a movie so much, let alone a romcom. Phenomenal acting, many true to life moments. 100% genuine, I can attest as a gay person. Honestly, it is easily the best, most representative lgbt themed movie I have ever seen and it is meant for everyone, especially children/teens and their parents.
apparently there is a way to crack the cult, if the immigration reform mentioned in SOTU gets implemented, this will be the end of trumps base. win for everyone.
