When I think about the probable fate of Roe v Wade, my blood boils!

I just saw the segment on the PBS Newshour where they talked to an abortion MD in (I think) N Dakota.

They also talked to several anti-abortion groups. These groups are headed by men.

I cannot stand listening to men holding forth on the sacredness of life when it's carried by a woman. They disregard all her reasons for the abortion and only talk about the new life coming.

These men have no right to interfere with how a woman treats an unwanted pregnancy. They have nothing to say about it, and yet they still hold forth.

We are preparing to enter a very dark period where women's health is under the thumbs of men who think they have the right to tell us how we should live.

I despair for all American women. It will take a huge effort to fight this change state by state.

I just called Senator Kamala Harris at 202/224-3121. You should too!

This number gets you to the entire Congress. Then you are given the choice to call either the Senate or the House. And so on.

You can either say the appropriate number or use the touch buttons on your phone to get where you want to be.

It's very easy. I l left her a message and it all took less than a minute.

They need to hear us! And that's especially true if they're Republicans who like Kavanaugh.

He was wearing a white Naval uniform. Was it John's son?

REP LIEU STATEMENT ON CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS OF TWO CLOSE TRUMP ASSOCIATES

LOS ANGELES - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after President Donald J. Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was convicted of eight counts of financial crimes and President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts including tax fraud and campaign finance violations.

"The respective guilty plea and guilty verdict for two close associates of the President, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, would’ve been enough to end a presidency in another era. But today we have a Republican-controlled Congress that has abdicated its constitutional responsibility to conduct effective oversight of the executive branch. You have various Republican Members of Congress arguing that self-dealing at taxpayer expense, sweetheart deals for rich friends, and collusion with hostile foreign powers are normal ways of doing government business. They’re not. It’s emblematic of Trump’s culture of corruption and every one of us should be outraged.

The guilty plea and conviction is a testament to the strength of our institutions and is a monumental reaffirmation of the rule of law. No one—not the President, not his employees, not his friends—is above the law. Earlier this year, Rep. Kathleen Rice and I called for an investigation into Michael Cohen’s payments to silence those with embarrassing stories about then-candidate Trump. As former prosecutors, we believed those actions were felony campaign finance violations. Michael Cohen’s guilty plea shows we were right.

Now is the time for Congress to act. The Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee must hold hearings on whether the President directed his lawyer to commit campaign finance violations like the plea suggests. This shouldn’t be a partisan issue because it comes down to what’s right and what’s wrong. Now is the time for House GOP Members to remember they took an oath to the Constitution, not to a political party or to Trump.”
