First, something good you can do if you have a little extra scratch:
Upper Midwest folks: Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo (where abortion is now illegal) is moving across the border to Moorhead, MN (where it is legal). They need funds to make that happen if you’re looking for ways to help. https://t.co/M67eELQnmE

Here’s an article about them from the Star Tribune — they’ve been planning for this. (H/T David Anderson)
Besides being enraged about the U.S. Supreme Court consigning me and tens of millions of other American women to second-class citizenship, I’m also caught between hope and fear today. My hope is this will galvanize us to come together and turn out in droves in the midterms, overturning all of those confident Beltway predictions of a Republican romp to give America a fighting chance.
I fear that the hopelessness (which I fully understand) and tiresome infighting (less so) that have plagued seemingly large groups of people who are roughly on the same political side I am for months will foreclose that possibility. I have no idea which is more likely, but in a way I’m grateful to Justice Thomas and the other radical clerics on the court for making their intentions so clear. There’s no mistaking their goal now.
