There is a book called “Handbook for a Post-Roe America,” that suddenly seems like a must read.

Handbook for a Post-Roe America is a comprehensive and user-friendly manual for understanding and preparing for the looming changes to reproductive rights law, and getting the healthcare you need—by any means necessary. Activist and writer Robin Marty guides readers through various worst-case scenarios of a post-Roe America, and offers ways to fight back, including: how to acquire financial support, how to use existing networks and create new ones, and how to, when required, work outside existing legal systems. She details how to plan for your own emergencies, how to start organizing now, what to know about self-managed abortion care with pills and/or herbs, and how to avoid surveillance. The only guidebook of its kind, Handbook for a Post-Roe America includes an extensive, detailed resource guide for all pregnant people (whether cis, trans, or non-binary) of clinics, action groups, abortion funds, and practical support groups in each state, so wherever you live, you can get involved.

With a newly right-wing Supreme Court and a Republican Senate, Roe is under threat. Robin Marty observes: “When we say abortion will be illegal in half the states in the nation, we are no longer talking about some hypothetical future—we are talking about just years down the road. We have to act now to secure what access remains, shore up the networks supporting those who need care, and decide what risks we are willing to take to ensure that any person who wants a termination can still end that pregnancy—with or without the government’s permission.”

Like I have said before what is happening now is nothing new and has been in the planning stages for decades.

    Natural News in 2005>de-platformed>Adams also posted graphics displaying Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg next to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, proclaimed himself a victim of an “online ethnic cleansing” to “enslave humanity and create Hell on Earth” and called for Trump to use “the military, if necessary, to occupy and dismantle the tech giants.”

    The site, which has even more followers than Alex Jones’ InfoWars, has always been a clearinghouse for conspiracy theories about GMOs and vaccines, as well as a purveyor of quack alternative medicine, dubious diets, and unregulated vitamin supplements. But in recent years it has also taken a far-right political tone, with Adams calling on Trump to impose martial law to stop “corrupt liberal judges” and “journo-terrorists.”

    OT-FYI “she needed to “play the game” if she wanted to succeed.”

    A current FBI employee also claimed Training Division unit chief Holland allegedly said there was “nothing” she could do about the sexual harassment she experienced. “You will be having a lot of mixed emotions right now, and there is no internal appeal process,” Holland said, according to the suit.

    On top of the accusations of “sexually charged commentary” from instructors at the academy, trainers allegedly referenced female stereotypes of women being moody. One male instructor allegedly said women were unreliable due to them being “too emotional” and sexually promiscuous. The same instructor also called a female African-American trainee with braids “spaghetti head,” and “constantly” talked about his “little blue balls,” the suit claims.

    Former FBI Director James Comey allegedly told plaintiff Lauren Rose that discrimination was not happening at the academy despite her complaints, and told her to use her “pain” to move forward.

    Citations that knocked the trainee’s “candor,” “insubordination,” and “lack of emotional maturity” were allegedly handed out to more women than men. The instructors, who are almost all men, were also accused of failing to provide “objective guidance” to females and not punishing male trainees who exhibited similar behaviors. – “This is our last-ditch effort. Most of us don’t want to be in this situation. This is something we had to do.”

    OT “What are you doing? This is a 10-year-old child,” – “But, I do not support putting a child of 10-years-old at gunpoint with no explanation. . . Does he look like he’s 30? Does he look like he’s 18? No.”

    Atwood argued that when states obligate women into childbearing, they institute “a form of slavery,”

    “Nothing makes me more nervous than people who say, ‘It can’t happen here.’ Anything can happen anywhere, given the right circumstances.”

    — From a 2015 lecture to West Point cadets

    On the discord between men and women

    “‘Why do men feel threatened by women?’ I asked a male friend of mine. … ‘They’re afraid women will laugh at them,’ he said. ‘Undercut their world view.’ … Then I asked some women students in a poetry seminar I was giving, ‘Why do women feel threatened by men?’ ‘They’re afraid of being killed,’ they said.”
