TWEETS YOU SHOULD NOT TWEET

Amanda, this tweet could have easily said “I do wonder how these white supremacist lawmakers would feel if their daughters needed an abortion.” Ironically or maybe not ironically at all considering liberal feminism’s preservation of racism, Duarte invokes racist narratives while calling out white supremacists. This draws on the paradox of progressive social movements, wherein immersion in a certain political philosophy can force allegiance to one movement while disavowing another, thought to inhabit the same spirit. 

Yassss a guy named Keith just solved the issue of abortion in red states, JUST MOVE! Maybe he has a fund to cover the cost of people having to move for abortions. You know what? I think Keith is a man written by a woman!

Yes, women are being stripped of their autonomy but let’s not pretend that restrictive abortion laws did not exist during the height of voter suppression and Jim Crowe in the 20th century. Senator Klobuchar, are you speaking to women or white women?

“Poor women and women of color have pressing needs for health services, including reproductive health services. They also have a history of maltreatment by the healthcare delivery system. For such women, making existing tights a reality and meeting the challenges posed by new modes of reproduction and reported advances in prenatal and perinatal technology are crucially related to these needs and history.”
