How close to death do patients experiencing pregnancy complications have to come before doctors in forced pregnancy states can treat them without risking criminal prosecution? What kind of barbaric question is that?

Interesting study looking at public health textbooks. They primarily focus on individual behaviours. When social and ecological DOHs are mentioned, its in relation to influencing individual behaviour. No real mention of commercial or political DOH. tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…

Today in the U.S., corporations will steal $137 million in wages, rich people will steal $2.75 billion in taxes, and 1,300 people will die from poverty, air pollution, and medical error. Think about who benefits from the news ignoring this and focusing on low-level crime instead.

Y’all they keep showing us videos of the government killing us & then telling us why nothing will change as they give more money to police. I don’t know how much more you need to see to understand that this is just escalating to another mass murder event.

If you want to understand how the Supreme Court rules on politics rather than the law look no further than the arena of Federal Indian Law. Today #SCOTUS changed who has criminal jurisdiction on over 300 reservations not based on precedent or even the facts on the ground…

This #SCOTUS opinion in #CastroHuerta is an act of conquest. Full stop. The right and power of tribes to rule themselves is being dismissed in favor of state power. Tribes are…I can’t even write it…part of states.
