Stars Draw The Line For Bill Of Reproductive Rights

first_imgThe Center for Reproductive Rights recently announced the launch of an innovative new campaign— DRAW THE LINE — in support of the Center’s Bill of Reproductive Rights. The Bill of Reproductive Rights provides an opportunity for Americans to join together and tell lawmakers that they stand strongly behind a woman’s right to safe reproductive health care.With support from a number of luminaries including Kevin Bacon, Sandra Bernhard, Billy Crudup, Olympia Dukakis, Jenna Fischer, Caroline Kennedy, Lisa Kudrow, Tea Leoni, Audra McDonald, Oliver Platt, Martha Plimpton, Amy Poehler, Kyra Sedgwick, Sarah Silverman, Meryl Streep, and Louis Zorich, the Center is calling on women and men across the country and from every walk of life to fight against attacks made on a woman’s fundamental and constitutional rights by signing the Bill of Reproductive Rights at www.drawtheline.org.Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Center for Reproductive Rights is the only global legal advocacy organization dedicated exclusively to advancing and defending reproductive rights. With expertise in both U.S. constitutional and international human rights law, the Center fights to ensure strong legal protections for reproductive rights, and affordable and unhindered access to a full range of reproductive health care services—including contraception, pregnancy care, abortion, and fertility treatments.Across the United States, the Center has brought the full power of the U.S. Constitution and courts to bear to ensure that anti-choice politicians do not turn back the clock on reproductive rights. Just this past year, the Center’s efforts have blocked extreme attacks on women’s rights and health care in Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Oklahoma.“Over the last several years, the increasingly relentless and hostile nature of the attacks on women’s reproductive rights have been on full display—underscoring just how critical it is to for Americans to take action and demand these rights be recognized as fundamental,” said Nancy Northup, president and CEO at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “It’s time that a women’s right to safe and accessible reproductive health care be safeguarded from the political tactics of those who seek to chip it away. It’s time for women and men to send a strong message to lawmakers across the country that we are drawing the line.”As the country approaches 40 years since the historic Roe v. Wade decision, it has never been clearer what is at stake if the onslaught of anti-choice measures is allowed to continue. These laws—such as forced ultrasound laws, restrictions on which health care services are covered by insurance plans, and zealous efforts to drive women’s doctors out of practice—place women at risk of grave harm, demean and humiliate their autonomy and ability to make their own decisions, and build significant barriers between women and safe reproductive health care services, including abortion.To join the conversation online, use the hashtag #DrawTheLine.last_img read more

Turks Caicos will be hit if EU dumped by British

first_img Related Items:british, Eu, european union, pm, queen, queen Elizabeth, Tci Recommended for you Happy Hours All Weekend at Outback Steakhouse Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp TCI: EU supports advancements in Turks and Caicos Education Sector Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe state opening of Parliament in the United Kingdom featured Queen Elizabeth II – with all of the pageantry – reading the Speech from the Throne and it was one of the biggest events of yesterday. The global attention comes because this session is expected to focus significantly on the fate of the relationship between the UK and the European Union; there is a strong push recently for the United Kingdom to dislodge itself from the European Trade Bloc and this will no doubt impact all of the overseas territories. While the Turks and Caicos is miles and miles away from the debates and headlines which rage over the issue which will be put to the citizens in a Referendum this coming June; it is clear that if the EU is dumped by the Brits it will impact us. In response to Magnetic Media questions, His Excellency Peter Beckingham, though out of the country, did reply agreeing that the matter made the agenda of a recent OTs Governors’ meeting. Speaking officially, the Governor shared: “It is something that some Governors have discussed in the Caribbean, most recently at a meeting in March, and of course something we would need to consider.” End quote. While the EU Grants operational in the TCI are assigned for up to 2019, H.E. pointed out, in the long term the outcome will have effect. As recently as February, Finance Minister Hon Washington Misick touted the EDF 10 and EDF 11 funds from the European Union; together the grants amount to over $25m Euros or over $28 million US dollars. Governor Beckingham reminded that the “British Government’s clear position is in favour of staying” with the European Union.

Govt unable to protect environment SC judge

first_imgIt is the government’s duty to protect the environment but they are unable to do so and instead they accuse the judiciary of encroaching upon its territory, Supreme Court judge Justice Vikramajit Sen on Tuesday said.“It is government which is supposed to protect the environment but increasingly, we find, for various reasons, that the government is unable to do this task. But that is primarily because politics is the main chase. You need an electorate to give votes. It is expensive exercise and therefore you have to increasingly depend on big businesses which exploit environment,” Justice Sen said.

What does the judiciary do A and B have a dispute and we are expected to decide. But what about the constitutional vision. Are we supposed to look the other way when we see degradation at such a large-scale? Or is it our duty, as a member of higher judiciary, to take note of it,” he said.“Governments think that we are encroaching on their territory but the reality is that we are doing very little to protect the environment. Any judge who is mindful will put environment on his priority list,” Justice Sen said.last_img read more
