This is horrifying! The US Supreme Court just stripped millions of the right to a safe and legal abortion!

But activists from across the world are fighting back -- and they need our help! Add your name to their open letter and let's make it the biggest call for reproductive rights we've ever seen.

Once we get to one million, we’ll publish it in US media -- sign with one click and share now!"

WE REMEMBER June of 1944
George Stinney Jr. was the youngest person to be sentenced to death in the 20th century in the United States.
He was only 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair.
During his trial, even on the day of his execution, he always carried a bible in his hands, claiming to be innocent.
He was accused of killing two white girls, 11-Year-old Betty, and Mary of 7, the bodies were found near the house where the teenager resided with his parents.
At that time, all members of the jury were white. The trial lasted only 2 hours, and the sentence was dictated 10 minutes later.
The Boy's parents were threatened, and prevented from being present in the courtroom, and subsequently expelled from that city.
Before the execution, George spent 81 days in prison without being able to see his parents.
He was held in solitary confinement, 80 miles from his city. He was alone without the presence of his parents or a lawyer.
He was electrocuted with 5,380 volts in his head.
70 years later, his INNOCENCE was finally proven by a judge in South Carolina. George was innocent, later to find out Police Officers had set him up looking to blame someone for the murders.
May his innocent soul rest in peace. #RIPGeorge #BlackLivesMatter

Johnson has claimed that Putin would not have invaded Ukraine if he was a woman and believes that the war is a “perfect example of toxic masculinity”.

Toxic masculinity is used to refer to certain cultural norms that are associated with harm to society and men themselves. 🧵

One young woman, has more guts than all the Republican John Wayne wannabes, and is bringing down the house of cards.
Cassidy Hutchinson should be considered for Medal of Freedom.

"The Chairman of the Committee, Democratic Representative Bennie Thompson, closes the meeting with his statement. Who after this day should think of something, who recovered his memory or want to correct a statement - the committee is ready at any time, "the doors are open"."

I wonder if Republican amnesia will end now?

Roe has been struck down. Women, in the eyes of the court, are nothing more than incubators, with no right to bodily autonomy. Welcome to Gilead.

To everyone who said they couldn’t vote for Hillary because “reasons,” this is on you. You allowed Trump and the GOP to put unqualified Quiverfulls and frat boy rapists on the bench.

Fun fact: Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley expressed alarm at what he called a “very disturbing” and “wildly inappropriate” attempts by lawyers working for then-President Donald Trump to pressure the Justice Department to help overturn the 2020 election results.
- When @FoxNews thinks it smells like corruption & sedition, that’s saying something.
