Posted @withregram • @quentin.quarantino After the gunman had arrived at the church, he tried to secure the doors with chains, nails and superglue before opening fire, police said. The gunman was armed with two pistols he legally purchased in Nevada, and police found several bags with magazines of ammunition and Molotov cocktails in the church, Barnes said.

Cheng charged the gunman, which allowed others to intervene to stop the shooting. A pastor hit the gunman on the head with a chair and parishioners hogtied him with electrical cords. He was still hogtied when police arrived.

Barnes said Chengs action probably saved the lives “of upwards of dozens of people. @usatoday #womenforprogress

This is absolutely spot on.

Let’s be very clear - women’s rights are threatened because NO ONE cared that right- wing evangelicals and Catholics formed a coalition that was working tirelessly to bring this about for decades.We watched them organize, we saw the ProLife movement pick up steam, and we waited for this issue to be become a priority for a bunch of people with penises. Centrists didn’t care.Democrats didn’t care.Bernie’s bros didn’t care.They let women save their asses from the train wreck that the pro birth Coalition had become by working our asses off to elect Joe Biden- and hand Trump a defeat. And still we waited. ... See MoreSee Less

#roevwade is on the ballot we must elect #prochoice leaders at the local, state and federal levels. Make no mistake this is not about protecting life. What’s at stake is about women having the right to decide what happens to her OWN body. We are not a subspecies that should lose this fundamental human rig#mybodymychoicec#womensrightsr#womensrightsarehumanrightsr#wfphighlighthlight ... See MoreSee Less

Posted @withregram • @motherjonesmag This is about minority rule. And it always has been.

That’s what I found myself thinking as I watched my feeds fill with the breaking news of the Supreme Court leaked draft decision to overrule Roe v. Wade last week, writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein.

I thought about the pregnancies that my loved ones, my friends, and I have ended, and about what it would have been like to be forced by the state to carry them to term.

But most of all, I thought about how far gone a democracy is when 54 percent of the population support a constitutional right and 28 percent oppose it, yet the 28 percent position wins out.

My colleague Ari Berman wrote about this in 2019, after Georgia passed one of the first in the new crop of anti-abortion bills even though only 44 percent of Georgians favored it. As Ari explained, “Republicans invest so much energy into voter suppression…because it allows them to enact cruel, unpopular policies with no accountability at the ballot box. The GOP doesn’t need to have the support of a majority of the state’s voters if it skews who actually gets to vote.”

Same in Washington, DC. Five of the Supreme Court’s nine justices were appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote. In the Senate, the 50 Republican senators represent 41 million fewer people than the 50 Democrats. The GOP controls state legislatures and congressional delegations through an absurd degree of gerrymandering.

These are tough facts, and sugarcoating them doesn’t serve anyone. In fact, there’s an argument that sugarcoating the abortion debate is part of what got us here. As the journalist Farai Chideya, who hosts the podcast Our Body Politic, wrote on Twitter, “Too many times I’ve been in newsrooms where a post-Roe and post-Voting Rights Act future was dismissed summarily as a possibility. So we as a profession created a dangerous filter bubble, dismissing individuals and groups as fringe when they were the tip of the spear.”

I don’t need to tell you that at MoJo, these possibilities were not dismissed: They were investigated.
