In terms of organizing, here are the states that have trigger laws that will criminalize 1st/2nd trimester abortions once RvW is overturned:
Look for state races to overturn such laws and DEFINITELY look for aid groups providing legal and medical support to women there.
I also want to talk about protest vs. direct action. Protest in this case, I'm very sorry to say, will be ineffectual. The SC is not beholden to public opinion, and frankly, there is no reasonable way the White House or Congress will do anything either.
So it is direct action and mutual aid that come into play here.
Birdsite, but this thread has links to local abortion funds in the states listed above: https://nitter.net/leahbarteldes/status/1521291323252350985?s=20&t=lhhQUV667H8lJOsz5OZI6g
@alstev It's not my pleasure, but it is the literal least I can do to help, protect, and support.
@mttaggart @alstev I’m in Canada watching in dismay. Sorry it’s come to this. I take heart in the fact that the majority of Americans — 60% I think — still support access to abortion. The Senate — and by extension the USSC — has such a democratic deficit right now. I don’t know how that can be overcome. One nation under God has morphed into entrenched, antidemocratic rule by minority religious interests. Fight the ruling. But reform/abolish the Senate too.
Or you can just mute/block what you don't want to see. Additionally our CoC states that this isn't the place for political or inflammatory toots.
@Tay0 That's understood, and if this thread earned me a demerit or a strike on my record, I'll gladly take the hit.
@Tay0 Also, frankly, despite the CW label, this is not "politics." This is a human rights violation masquerading as policy, just as all the other denials of bodily autonomy have been throughout history.
@mttaggart Nice sentiment, but it's over. Theocracy complete.
I live in Arkansas. My family and I are looking at international options.
@mttaggart I'm proud that neither my home state nor my current jurisdiction of residence are on that list, and entirely unsurprised that two states I temporarily lived in are.
(There are definitely reasons for the "temporarily" part.)
