In this country Viagra is covered by insurance without question, but birth control coverage is dependent upon the religious ideals of employers/institutions. If that sounds: - misogynistic - discriminatory - irresponsible - indicative of systemic sexism that’s because it is!

The most vulnerable people in our society have the most to lose when it comes to allowing religious freedom to be used to take away contraception access. Low-inco families and women of color already face barriers to care. This will make it that much worse!

Give love and grace to yourself first and foremost. And second, can I help? It can be so hard. But often support and community can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE. ♥️♥️♥️

Yes, normalize therapy. But also make it affordable. Far too many people turn therapy away because one visit costs hundreds of dollars. Mental health care should not be a luxury item.

Here's one thing I cannot wrap my head around: "I support Donald Trump but I am not a racist." I'm sick of being civil about it. If you support a racist, racist practices, or any promotion of racism...you're a racist. It's really that simple. The term racist offend you? 2 bad.

With all due respect, the most important thing the white women tweeting can do for everyone, is find the 47% of your friends that helped put this racist, misogynist in office & start your work there. Thank you, all of us.

One of the most common myths about cesarean births is that once you have one, your next pregnancy is automatically scheduled for a surgical birth. According to CDC data, a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) has lower risk factors than subsequent surgical births.
