"How would you ensure access to abortion regardless of someone’s income level? Some of the highest barriers to American women accessing abortion care are financial, due to the Hyde Amendment and clinic closure laws.

(CNN) -- Athletes across the country have been sitting or kneeling during the national anthem in recent weeks to protest police brutality and racism. But a football game in Washington, D.C. may mark the first time a squad of cheerleaders has taken a knee during the song.
Coffee Party USA's insight:
In 1970-71 I was a cheerleader at a west coast university. The Black Student Union was protesting the treatment of black students, especially by the athletic department. I was one of the three women on the squad that supported the cause. It came to a head during a halftime protest at a basketball game. Nothing violent, just annoying to those who did not support them. I did not mind giving up half time dancing. The post event reviews were harsh. So the three (all of us white) started wearing black arm bands to games. When the national anthem played, we stood, but turned out backs to the flag. They had the right to peaceful protest. We had the right to peaceful protest. The Viet Nam Vets on campus supported us. Anyone who knew what was really going on supported us. I learned then how easy it is for some people to have an opinion without knowing the facts. Now even more people have a chance to learn what I learned in 1970.
We have a BOLD vision for a future without Hyde. Add your voice and GO BOLD with us. #BeBoldEndHyde

The outdated Hyde Amendment is a legislative provision barring the use of certain federal funds to pay for abortion except to save the life of the mother, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape.
In school, we all learned about how hard women worked to earn their right to vote during the suffrage movement, before the Constitutional amendment was finally passed in 1920. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to an entire gender being faced with oppression over the years. We’re obviously stil
It is strange to me that as the World Health Organization, the United Nations, and dozens of other organizations who seek to end poverty in the world, our politics appears to be pushing back against the empowerment of women.
Please fellow Bernie supporters please think this through. Yes we KNOW the DNC cheated in the primaries but it is done. Hillary is the nominee. We have to face it and move on and work to change the system as best we can going forward.
This is what Bernie is telling us. We trusted him because he has always had prophetic like vision on everything his entire life. We cannot vote for a candidate with absolutely no chance of winning thereby allowing two fascists to be elected and making the Supreme Court to become right wing for the next 25 years destroying women's and civil rights and god knows what else.
I get it that the the Democrats were stupid by putting their finger on the scale. I get that they are corrupt but Trump is a narcissistic maniac and if we Bernie supporters vote for Jill Stein ESPECIALLY in a swing state here in Florida things are going to be very bad in this country.
It is going to make me sick to my stomach to vote for Hillary but it has to be done. Once she is elected we start from DAY ONE and put her feet to the fire. It will be a lot of work but it can be done. With Trump as president and the GOP holding both houses.... well... I will make myself sick and vote for Hillary and then start the very hard work. At least it will be possible.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-- The entire roster of the Indiana Fever took a knee during the national anthem Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse as the WNBA team prepared to take on the Phoenix Mercury. The players locked arms and lowered their heads as the anthem played.
