That scene from Shawshank comes to mind: "You don't seem to be a very good thief. Maybe you should try something else." (July 3, 2018) via @AnthonyJMaida

Very angry and important @NewAbnormalPod on #RoeRage this morning, justified frustration at the inaction of senior dems @MollyJongFast @andylevy. Well worth a listen.

Please please everyone read and interview @robinmarty. I just interviewed her for tomorrows @NewAbnormalPod and she’s such a resource
The author of this @nytopinion piece and the book "Handbook for a Post-Roe America", @robinmarty, works at @alabama_west. This clinic can now no longer offer elective abortions. They are fundraising to offer other free/affordable sexual health services: gofundme.com/f/put-the-commu…

Don't worry everyone, the Calm Down Caucus says the Supreme Court probably won't overturn gay marriage or contraception unless, you know, they want to. nytimes.com/2022/06/27/brief…

“Every woman has been deemed lesser. Every woman has had her citizenship degraded. I was furious because I felt diminished. I was enraged because I knew that all of us had been deemed lesser." @MollyJongFast captures our grief: newsletters.theatlantic.com/…

A thread perfectly expressing what a lot of women I know feel. I wasn’t surprised by the decision, but hoped Roberts might get 5 votes for a narrower decision. The 6-3 overturn makes me think more Constitutional rights-cancelings by 5-4 are in the realm of the very possible.
Reading a lot of pieces which fail to capture the incredible rage I feel about a Supreme Court doing something wildly unpopular that will affect more than 50 percent of all Americans.

Here’s @MollyJongFast on what it felt like to lose Roe: “Even more than feeling angry, I felt this loss, this profound loss.” Spot on, as always. More here: newsletters.theatlantic.com/…

Really hard one to write, but after 16 years of covering mass shootings, guess I’ve become a pro at writing through tears…
NEW: Deep dive on @ChrisMurphyCT, the Newtown families, rise of the gun-control ‘lobby,’ and how - after a decade - they made history by finally beating the NRA on what was formerly its home turf. My latest just went live bit.ly/3OqI5Qd

Real talk: I interviewed @LeahLitman for tomorrow’s @NewAbnormalPod and she told me this and I kind of stole her idea. Sorry @LeahLitman. She’s very smart and you should follow her.
"I think that the smartest thing that Biden can do right now is he can say what he wants, what he needs" @MollyJongFast talked with @MSignorile about Biden's lack of communication and urges him to tell the voters what he needs to codify Roe. LISTEN: SiriusXM.us/SignorileSXM 🎙

I tried to write about a moment that for me symbolized the height of American women’s freedom and hope, and what it means to think about that era from our own much less optimistic time.
"The generation of young girls who were shown Chastain and the rest of 'the ’99ers' as symbols of what their lives could be are now grown women, facing down a world that does not live up to that promise." @MoiraDonegan on pop feminism and women's soccer: bit.ly/3aiDyQk

It’s like @MollyJongFast lifted up my brain and could read my thoughts. Really worth the read.
Replying to @MollyJongFast
Even more than feeling angry, I felt this loss, this profound loss. It wasn’t until I read a tweet from @MoiraDonegan that I realized where it was coming from. “Every woman has been deemed lesser. Every woman has had her citizenship degraded,” newsletters.theatlantic.com/…

The way you can tell someone hasn’t engaged with reproductive justice in a meaningful way before this is if they talk about mandatory vasectomies, that’s not new or a novel gotcha that happened historically and it’s rooted in the same violence as abortion bans

Stop calling abortion funds/networks and moving people across state lines for an abortion “the Underground Railroad”. Why? 🧵
