High School Valedictorian Swaps Speech To Speak Out Against Texas’ New Abortion Law

A decision that will affect the rest of their lives is made by a stranger.

I have dreams and hopes and ambitions. Every girl graduating today does. And we have spent our entire lives working towards our future. And without our input and without our consent, our control over that future has been stripped away from us. [applause]

I am terrified that if my contraceptives fail, I am terrified that if I am raped, then my hopes and aspirations and dreams and efforts for my future will no longer matter. I hope that you can feel how gut-wrenching that is. I hope you can feel how dehumanizing it is, to have the autonomy over your own body taken away from you.

And I’m talking about this today — on a day as important as this, on a day honoring 12 years of hard academic work, on a day where we are all gathered together, on a day where you are most inclined to listen to a voice like mine, a woman’s voice — to tell you that this is a problem, and it’s a problem that cannot wait.

And I cannot give up this platform to promote complacency and peace, when there is a war on my body and a war on my rights. A war on the rights of your mothers [cheers], a war on the rights of your sisters, a war on the rights of your daughters.

Good for you, Paxton Smith!! 👊 So brave and awesome.

Bernie Sanders says he ‘will not be mourning’ Netanyahu’s departure

During an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday, Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont said the new Israeli coalition – which is expected to be sworn in next Wednesday – was “very strange,” though he said he “will not be mourning” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“They have people on the left, people on the right, people in the middle. So we will see what happens in terms of that coalition,” he added.

Regarding the likely removal of Netanyahu from the role of prime minister however, Sanders’ views were drastically more certain.

“It is no great secret that I am not a great fan of Benjamin Netanyahu,” he said. “I think, over the years, the coalition that he has put together has become more right-wing, and in some cases, part of that coalition is overtly racist.”

He concluded his answer with a message of hope for cooperation, saying “I will not be mourning the departure of the prime minister, Mr. Netanyahu, and I hope that Israel will have a government that we will be better able to work with.”

I’m not sure my sharing tik tok clips worked 😉

Biden filed the memo on wealth inequality into file 13 I guess.

One would think Biden would have had negotiation 101 with R’s down pat by now. Step 1: do not blink first because then the ceiling automatically becomes the floor as a starting point.
