Abortion Access Is Vital for People with Disabilities | Time


But people with disabilities are often left out of the fight for reproductive rights

============================================

“People with disabilities also have sex. They want to start families, they want to date,” Moonan says. But “people don’t see people with disabilities that way.”

This is so true and in many ways people don’t see people with disabilities at all.

Joy Moonan and others are ‘Experts by Experience’ and they all so need to be listened for the politicians and not experts in any field. It is just they have been voted into positions which gives them great power, but they use it so unwisely.

A blanket ban on abortions and some other medical interventions are so wrong as all cases should be viewed on their merits. Especially where lives are in question and with abortions in many other instances such as rape, incest, etc.

To not take into account the lives of women is justifying ‘Institutional Murder’, but, certainly in America and maybe in some other countries, politics has been allowed to run uncontrollably, as severe right or even left views need to be contained.

People should be the important factor and not just the views of the powerful or assumed powerful, for that is power by dictatorship, which can be readily seen in some, supposed democratically ruled countries, especially in some parts of America.

The abortion bans are an abuse of power, not respecting hard fought for Womens Human Rights, so disrespectful of women.

Ukraine-Russia war latest: Germany confirms it will send tanks to Kyiv as Kremlin warns of ‘blatant provocation’ | The Independent


Berlin will provide 14 Leopard 2 tanks from military stocks as a first step, a statement from the German government said

============================================

Just what planet is Putin and his other comrades on  for he and them invaded an a independent country with a democratically elected Government without any justification, only to attempt to accomplish Putin’s dream and every other persons nightmare of a reformed Russian Empire. He and they provoked all the actions currently being being taken by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Ukraine with the support of other enlightened countries to ensure there is eventual peace in Europe.

For to ignore Putin and Russian invasions only leads to Putin believing he and the Russian forces are invincible as we saw with the earlier invasions of Chechnya, Crimea and some areas of Eastern Ukraine.

If Putin suceeds in absorbing Ukraine into Russia, no other country will be safe, even those who are already within NATO.

Putin said he feared a NATO invasion, well where is it, for no NATO forces are within Ukraine and engaged against so called Russian Forces or within Russia itself.

What Putins invasion of Ukraine has started is more countries wishing to be part of NATO, such as Finland and Sweden so putin is effectively a catalyst for NATO expansion.

It is doubtful, if Russia will ever be trusted, for after the Cold War there were signs that some trust was begining to occur, but this invasion of Ukraine, plus the poisonings in other countries and Cyber attacks over the years put down to Putin are now certain that Russia will now be never trusted.

Will there be peace, well we all hope so and now it appears that Germany Leopard 2 Tanks and America Abram tanks could be given to Ukraine together with the already offered UK Challenger 2 Tanks.

Will this lead to eventual peace in Ukraine and Russia’s continued acts of agression to bne curtailed well everyone hopes so.

Shooting of teacher by six-year-old a red flag for US, says mayor | Virginia | The Guardian


Boy taken into custody after wounding of teacher, whose condition is said to be showing signs of improvement

============================================

It is being said that a six-year using a gun is unusual and then they go on to talk of 4 more, one is unusual but then this is America where guns are the ‘norm’ or appear to be.

This occurring in most other countries would see immediate actions being taken to mitigate or to stop this occurring again, but, yes this is America where I feel again nothing will be done because the Gun rules America when it should be not so, for guns in the hands of anyone is dangerous and especially one so young, who appears to feel it is OK.

Will America learn from this I don’t feel it will because to learn one has to be willing to learn which America is so unwilling to do?

Why is American chocolate so disgusting? You really don’t want to know | Arwa Mahdawi | The Guardian


It tastes like sawdust that’s been drowned in sugar and soaked with baby vomit – and I’ve finally discovered why, writes Arwa Mahdawi

============================================

It is because the Dollar reigns supreme in America, much more so than any other currency in its country of origin. Money is the supreme power in America, which is why their healthcare system is also not good.

Care is not present in many instances, just the profit and greed and Americans, surprisingly just accept it. They are so vocal in many respects, except in areas of good quality as the quality is money and not the goods or services provided.

In many instances America and Americans are so centred on themselves and chose to believe the propaganda put out by the great corporations, much more so than in other countries which are deemed to be democratic.

One would believe they are living in a dictatorship, instead of what they believe to be the greatest democracy going.

Many are so insular that they have no idea what is occurring outside their State than whatever is occurring outside of America, or even what is outside America.

Are they that so pliable or are there other reasons.

For instance take Law and Order for what is allowed in one State may not be in another, is that really true freedom. But some when they do leave America, appear, to truly believe that what they believe they can do in America, they are allowed to do in other countries as their believed law and order rules supreme wherever they are, as each and every countries have their own rules of law and order and these stretch throughout ever area of the said country that will never be so.

I am, of course, making generalisation here, but it is what is put out in many instances.

But, then, they did have a President, that appeared to believe that airports and planes were around in the American War of Independence.

Some even believe that American English is the true form of English and many other aspects of America, when American history only dates from 4 July 1776, where as the history many other countries are many years much earlier, such as England 12 July 927

What the criminal referral of Trump means – a constitutional law expert explains the Jan. 6 committee action


The House Committee’s criminal referrals show that the proceedings are not just about a historical record – they argue that Trump should be held accountable for four criminal charges.

============================================

A Democracy ‘Falls or Stands’ by its Rule of Law, so it is extremely important for America to be, still, seen as a Democratic country, for in the past years through the Trump Presidency and thereafter it has been viewed that money and assumed power is above the Rules of Law.

If the actions of Trump, even one of them, let all that has occurred, had been done by anyother in America they would not be, currently, free to roam as they wish to for they would have been immediately arrested, so it is seen that money and assumed power in America does to some extent bring privileges not afforded to others. This is far from good to ensure democracy continues to exist and leads to the road of supreme power as in a dictatorship. We see in the rise of Putin in Russia how a country which was to some extent becoming more demorcratic and now gone back to being a full dictatorship.

So America please at last see that justice is there for everyone, for not only Americans but everyone in the World.

Students with Disabilities Often Overlooked in Gifted Programming – The 74


Gifted programming, already uneven across the country and prone to racial discrimination, has yet another blind spot: twice exceptional students.  These advanced learners, who may also receive special education services, can languish academically, their skills overlooked. The same holds true for low-income children, students of color and those learning to speak English.  Experts say most […]

============================================

This is so true and not only in America, for it is, more than likely, the World all over.

This is due, as is everything, administered in a system and these systems are too rigid and maybe created by persons with no ‘expert by experience; knowledge, plus in many instances lack of sufficient finance.

Nobody, no matter who they are should have to ‘fit a system’ as systems should be created to ‘fit each individual’. However, it is believed it is easier to do the former, no matter how wrong it is, there being no equality and demeaning to those where are forced into the system.

Person-centred should be the prime factor, but it is institutional centred which is commonplace. This needs to change and to be changed by listening to ‘experts by experience’ and not just one expert but a cross-section of ‘experts by experience, then it would be a system for the people, by the people and not, as at present, a system by administrators and bureaucrats and also, be fully, adequately financed, while being extremely flexible to accommodate every person how they wish to be accommodated.

Then and only then will there be true equality for all.

Next up: voting rights, as US supreme court set to tear up more protections | US news | The Guardian


The ideologically driven conservative majority is likely to further weaken key civil rights legislation after a term of radical rulings

============================================

This is extremely disturbing for it is a prime example of where politics is the main ruling factor over justice and is breaching Human Rights of non-white people, meaning that the ‘Land of the Free’ is only free for whites.

Politics should have no bearing in the rule of law, for if this is taken to its extreme it could mean the overturning of the abolishing of slavery, however, that would mean having to remove the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, but it appears that the current US Supreme Court has no regards for Human Rights.

This is down to Trump and if he is allowed to run for President in 2024 then America could well become a country which will be a country for whites only, as every other ethnicity will be discriminated against.

The abuse in America will know no bounds and equality will be a concept of the past.

Family of Emmett Till demand arrest of woman in her 80s after discovering unserved 1955 warrant | Daily Mail Online


A warrant for the arrest of Carolyn Bryant Donham, 88, (above, left) was discovered last week by searchers inside a file folder that had been placed in a box in Leflore County

============================================

This shows what has been wrong in America and maybe, is still currently, as if this had been in reverse, the warrant would have certainly been served. Is just, further more proof of the inequalities that exist in America, as in many states, even to this day, black Americans are treated with disrespect, so in no way is there the equality which should exist.

In fact, in some states, little has changed since slavery was abolished and, some in the Southern States of America still wish it was re-established.

With the current state of justice in America, including the Supreme Court nothing can be dismissed. As equality rights and human rights are denied or ignored in many instances, as for non-white Americans it is not the land of the free, well not as free as for white Americans.

Thousands of protesters hit streets across the US and begin to mass outside Clarence Thomas’ home | Daily Mail Online


The prospective law changes, released in a concurring opinion Friday’s decision by the justice, would see limits put on gay marriage, same-sex activity, and citizens’ access to birth control.

===========================================

 

With the overthrow of Roe v Wade the Supreme Court have made America no longer the ‘Land of the Free’, if it ever was.

You may argue that if women don’t wish to have babies, then they should not undertake actions in which they could become pregnant, but do they really have that choice in respect of RAPE and maybe incest. If men could be able to carry an unborn baby and then give birth, then maybe abortions may not be necessary, but in those instances a rapist would need to be caught in time.

As now women are not free to live their lives as they wish to and while the abolition of abortion rights is bad enough that may not be the last actions against freedoms from this Supreme Court. For now they could move onto birth control, same sex marriage, LGBTQ rights and many more, for religion and politics have no place in dealing with legalities, but Human Rights have.

Not only is it withdrawing human rights, but are, in effect, creating situations where the health of women will be of grave risk and could be a cause of their deaths.

To do so the Supreme Court will, in many respects, be equal to the Taliban and other Islamic zealots, for Christian zealots are just as bad as Islamic zealots, if not more so.

The Supreme Court are, in effect, abusing women by withdrawing their rights, for now there is no equality in America.
