Don’t move forward after reading this like everything is normal. Don’t shake your head at Alabama and then keep going about your day. Realize that this is a warning. It’s Alabama and abortion today. It’s you and your rights tomorrow. Your silence will not save you. So speak up.
Alabama has sent the most restrictive abortion bill in the country to the governor's desk.

It could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison, and an amendment to exempt rape and incest victims failed. cnn.it/2VAPmFA

You’re right to be horrified. Your life and your body are your own. Now we find ways to help those most impacted. Let’s go.
I never imagined this war on women in my lifetime. But it’s also a war on children. Children born unwanted, to mothers who can’t care for them, in a country with a broken system for supporting our most innocent and needy. Disgraceful. Our children deserve better. And so do women.

If this bill is signed into law, women in Alabama become slaves to an unborn fetus. The ballot box is the greatest weapon we have in the fight against tyranny. Vote these people out of office;
Your silence will not save you, I don't know what we can do but we have to do something. At least speak up. Educate ourselves. Either way it has started

Handmaids Tale is not fiction.
In Alabama, the penalty for having an abortion after you are raped is now greater than the penalty for raping someone.
In reply to @ava
YES . Thank you, Ava. And if anyone has anything to give, please donate to @NARAL, which is helping raise money to aide women and girls seeking abortions who haven't the money to pay, or ability to get to a clinic.
In reply to @ava
I feel like our nation is state-by-state turning into a real life version of #TheHandmaidsTale Women are losing the rights to their bodies while a madman tweets about tariffs...
Antidote to how you feel reading the news this morning.

Dontions to @PPFA ,@emilyslist, @HigherHeights, @ACLU, @fairfightaction

Feel good. Do good.
Don't just shake your head at Alabama and then go on about your day.
I feel the same way...

I cannot understand why in 2019 we have moved so far backwards and are restricting women’s reproductive rights. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Generations from now what with the narrative say about these times? SMH

Today, Wed., March 15, Missouri will be voting to join Alabama. If you live in Missouri, call your state Senator. Tell them to say NO to HB 126.

Elections have consequences. Election have consequences. Elections have consequences. Register to vote. Vote these people out. Keep voting your people in forever.

Isn't it unconstitutional to remove a woman's right to safeguard her own body?
In reply to @ava
This is ridiculous, you can put Bill's into place about what a woman can or can't do to her body. Yet you do nothing to protect innocent children from school shootings and gun violence. Unbelievable....

Add Alabama to places I’ll never go to. I hope this backwards thinking doesn’t spread. People need to get out and Vote if you don’t like this.
Respect women. Trust women to make difficult decisions. Election to the legislature does not make you more capable to make such difficult, personal decisions.
Today, abortion. Tomorrow, Contraception. Next, we will not be able to work outside the home.

I don't have the ability to carry a child, which tends to suggest to me that I'm singularly ill equipped to dictate to those who can. Something other men might want to think about, rather than worrying about what their imaginary friend thinks.
In reply to @ava
And, of course, this will affect one demographic more than any other - poor black women - who are DYING in childbirth at higher rates than any other demographic. How is that pro-life?

In reply to @ava
I keep saying this, where are all the doctors? Shouldn't the be furious that these GOP Handmaids Tales lovers are making these laws?
This is me speaking up, even though I know a lot of you will disagree. Come at me in my DMs if you think these abortion bans are OK. Especially come at me if you don't have a uterus.
This is terrifying. I pray that Alabama’s population and every right-minded person in the US fights this. #regression #HandmaidsTale

I don’t live in America, so glad I don’t, this is an abomination. It’s sick and revolting. How dare many men have this amount of power over women and their bodies. H.
NOW is the time for people to be in the streets fighting for the future of women & all of humanity demanding #TrumpPenceMustGo Waiting until it effects you and yours paves the road to monstrosity. #Alabama

It’s getting scarier by the day. Last night Alabama... what will they do next to try and roll back the clock? As minorities we should be VERY concerned.. Civil Rights? Voting Rights?? 😦😦😦
In reply to @ava
It’s been proven time and time again that people do what they can get away with. I haven’t heard one thing from Alabama citizens (women or men). I haven’t heard any activists from that area, I haven’t seen any marches from that area. I just don’t understand what’s happening...
In reply to @ava
Its obvious. They are going after Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right of women in this country. Saddest part is women are not even part of this debate.
In reply to @ava
So abortion is a felony & felons can't vote. This bill is also a means to strip women of their voting rights. We need to march on Montgomery.
In reply to @ava
I do speak up...this is what happens when our country votes for a man who says “grab them by the...” and uses a racist tone to Reporters who are Black Women, calling them names.... Time for a documentary on this!
In reply to @ava
Thank you for speaking up on this @ava - as a woman who lives in Alabama, I couldn't agree more. A friend of mind (also a woman from Alabama) put this moment and feeling into powerful words here: facebook.com/jenny.ofarrill…

This fucking outraged me today. So much for progression.
It is extremely hard to be a women in this country and not enraged at the moment.

I am enraged and I vote & donate
In reply to @ava
My question is, is this what women in Alabama want? And if not, then why are they letting the men do all the deciding?
In reply to @ava
I saw that & was/am APPALLED, LIVID, SICK ETC. I'm soooo SICK of MEN deciding on something that they have NO CLUE about. I'm pro life, HOWEVER, I believe that, women have the RIGHT to decide what's BEST for their PERSONAL situation. This is DISGUSTING & it needs to be thrown out!
How can people just not be worried and go about their everyday lives with this stuff going on.. I seriously get so scared and mad and sad and can’t focus on anything
Are you kidding me?!?! What is happening in our country?!?! Step up and make sure this doesn't get passed.
In reply to @ava
Don't let the voices silence Raise them to scream The woman's body is her own if she chooses to abort it is her choice Quiet old guys, go and feed pigeons.

Time to start screaming!!! Save #RoeVWade and fucking protect women and girls!!! It's not that hard! #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #RightToChoose
It is a warning. For women everywhere.
In reply to @ava
If they could have a uterus & all that comes with it sor one year... Could they eben handle it? This is so dehumanizing.
Also remember the ability to make women who need abortion felons coupled with not allowing felons to vote is an effort to mass disenfranchise women. It’s despicable at all levels.
Ignoring this because it won’t affect you is the definition of privilege. Men, we need you on our side too.
If not for a series of events outside my control (acceptance to USC + scholarship) I would have gone to University of Alabama for free. I'm SO glad I did not build a life there. Women with economic choices are taking note. We will not attend your schools, work your jobs...
what the fuck do we do? what the FUCK can we do
We got some real shitheads running the country. And it’s getting worse.

I live in Ohio where they just banned them and now they're trying to ban insurance from paying for birth control and considering an ectopic pregnancy being removed abortion!
In reply to @ava
Why are we teaching girls that rape is something to cope with and deal with? Why is rape so normalized? Don’t ignore this bill. Pay attention, support the women faced with these gag laws. Ohio. Georgia. Alabama. And counting... pic.twitter.com/ToyNlaF0dN

I'm trying my best. A lot of the ppl I speak to in real life about this think I'm being a paranoid alarmist. It's maddening and depressing, but I will not stop sounding the alarms.
You don’t need to be a woman to be an ally in all of this!

Stop policing bodies! These laws are disgusting!
I was in the abortion underground w/my mom from 65-73. I’ll speak, write & fight to preserve a woman’s right to choose. We can’t go backwards. We can’t let them make America miserable again. We won’t.

They can legalize slavery.

The list of states that I will only drive through and not spend a fucking penny keeps getting longer.
So true Alabama is setting the stage for complete control of our rights. Imprisonment for doctors and women? This is maddening.
This is endlessly terrifying and I feel so helpless and so enraged at the same time. People need to speak up and say that THIS 👏 IS 👏 NOT 👏 RIGHT 👏.

This was their plan all along. That’s why they did a 360 with trump. Sold their souls for judges. They’re only concerned with white babies being born. After that , it’s fend for yourself.
We’ll be shuffling about ‘under his eyeing’ and ‘praise be-ing’ before long. #AlabamaAbortionBan
Each time I read about this I can’t quite believe it.

Cancelling a trip to Alabama right now.
I don’t care who you are, what your stance on abortion is, what your education/religion has taught you.

If you don’t think what’s going on is outrageous, you are throwing away human decency, & you are dismissed from my life.

& if you read this & think “she doesn’t mean me” I do
In reply to @ava
Ava, women’s rights are being rolled back effortlessly across the world. It’s like they’ve seen the Handmaid’s tale as a blueprint, rather than a warning.
PLEASE HEAR THIS. Allowing anyone’s rights to be taken is the same as surrendering your own:
handmaids tale, here we come...
In reply to @ava
Omg. Approximately 50 years ago women across the USA fought for the rights of women and their choice to get an abortion. It seems as though all of that work has just been undone by a couple of deranged men.
In reply to @ava
Time for legislation requiring men causing pregnancies to pay all maternal healthcare and childbirth costs. Maybe if you hit them in the wallet they'll stop and think?
In reply to @ava
I've seen it reported this is a deliberate provocation, they actively want Dems to challenge this legally so it can go to the Supreme Court - the Trump Supreme Court. Could end up revisiting Roe-Wade.
Liberals quake over the loss of Alabama abortions—which kills millions in deafening silence, crow on rooftops about tyranny and the loss of liberties.

📍Pro 2A advocates—who hear 2020 candidates plans for gun confiscation via executive fiat, feel your pain.
In reply to @ava
This is about guys controlling women... these same cowards could not get a girl in HS and after.. also they don’t believe gun laws will stop gun violence but think a law will stop abortion 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Forget a sex strike, we need a work strike.
::personal opinion, not my employer's::

This. The most terrifying part to me is the lack of a carve-out for rape/incest. It's saying women's trauma doesn't matter. Women don't matter. And it's not just men doing it - women supported this too.

hey men, now would also be a good time for you to actually speak up
