Caption: Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) introduced the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (S 184), a companion bill to the House's HR 7. Both would enshrine the annual appropriations rider known as the Hyde Amendment into federal law, reinforcing a significant barrier to abortion care for people with low incomes and people of color.

Oklahoma ranks second behind Louisiana for the sheer number of abortion restrictions passed since 1973.
J'nene Solidarity Kay's insight:

"The legislation would require a woman seeking an abortion first to obtain written permission from her sexual partner. It would also require her to provide his name to her doctor and would forestall the procedure if the man wanted the opportunity to challenge paternity." #WeMarch

Science is Not a Liberal Conspiracy

Science is Not a Liberal Conspiracy | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

A Mighty Girl / Inage:@2017 Julie Dermansky

Among the millions of people who participated in Women's Marches on Saturday, a special group in Washington stood out: 150 female scientists wearing white lab coats marched en masse, chanting "Climate change is real! Science is real!” and "What do we want? Data! When do we want it? Forever!” The women were part of a new organization, 500 Women Scientists, which formed after the election to fight the growing trend of anti-intellectualism, sexism, and outright harassment of scientists which threatens scientific progress worldwide. The organizers penned an open letter in November, declaring: "In this new era of anti-science and misinformation, we as women scientists re-affirm our commitment to build a more inclusive society and scientific enterprise." They quickly amassed thousands of signatories from around the world, and over 14,000 supporters have now signed on. The Women's Marches were the first time that many of the women met in person as they came together to march in Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles, and D.C. -- and, as the group wrote on their website, the events' huge success has given them "inspiration, strength, and hope" for the fierce fight for scientific integrity ahead.

At the Women's Marches, the women were treated like celebrities with people asking to pose for pictures with them and their signs reading "A Woman's Place Is In The Lab," “Stand up 4 Science,” and “Science Does Not Discriminate.” Many scientists have expressed feeling besieged this week by an administration among whose very first actions were to remove the White House's climate change page and issue gag orders to stop government scientists from communicating with the public. Scientists have been proactively organizing to counter the administration's anti-science agenda. Climate scientists, who are being especially targeted due to the administration’s embrace of anti-science climate change denialism, have even set up efforts to move climate research to secure websites overseas to protect it from the administration's anticipated purge of climate data and staff.

Many scientists have been shocked at the extreme actions they have seen unfold in only the administration's first week. “This is not a partisan issue. People from all parts of the political spectrum should be alarmed by these efforts to deny scientific progress,” says medical researcher Caroline Weinberg, “Scientific research moves us forward and we should not allow asinine policies to thwart it." To carry the fight forward, plans for another mass march have quickly come together this week -- in only two days, over 300,000 people joined a private Facebook group to organize a March for Science. And, looking forward to 2018 and beyond, a new non-profit, 314 Action, recently formed to provide encouragement, advice, and support to scientists who want to run for public office. Already, the new organization has heard from over 400 scientists who are considering running. Reflecting on the rapidly growing organizing efforts by scientists to counter the administration's anti-science policies, Naomi Oreskes, a science historian at Harvard, observed this week: “It is the scientists who mobilized against the arms race in the late 1950s and 1960s. So that tells you how scientists feel now. This is an existential threat.”
