I had never heard of a safe haven law before Justice Barrett brought them up last week, during the oral argument for Dobbs. I’m not alone. They’re little known, rarely invoked, and aren’t usually discussed in the context of abortion. Deep dive @19thnews

Also worth remembering that the *majority of kids* live with parents who work for pay, and *only 11% of parents* are still working from home--and even those who work from home *can't do child care* at the same time! Who is going to watch the kids?

As smart colleagues forecast last year, the pandemic changed the role of teachers' unions in shaping how school functions. Now the reasons for school closures have spread beyond Covid precautions. Could M-F school for U.S. kids no longer be a guarantee?

Teachers say they are stressed and burnt out. Parents ask how less time in school (as opposed to more $ and resources for teachers) helps students, who are devastatingly behind--academically, socially, emotionally--after missing so much time in class the last two school years

This is a vital story from @giuliaheyward: Around the country, in Utah, Michigan, Oregon and elsewhere, teachers are demanding cutbacks in the time students are in school, like going to four-day school weeks and announcing last-minute 4-day weekends

One worker, earning too much to qualify for assistance but too little to afford stable housing, told ⁦@talmonsmith⁩, “I feel like a loser. I feel like a failure … The people looking at the data aren’t the people trying to put food on the table.”

“No state may benefit more than Texas from the social programs included in President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda, an array of recent analyses show -- despite the fierce opposition to the bill from the state's Republican leadership.”

For the @NYTmag, I wrote about The Lost Daughter, C'Mon C'Mon, Maid, and onscreen depictions of motherhood--who gets to fall apart and what screen mothers say and don't say about American culture.

In case we need to renew this flame - in September 2021 there were 1.4 million fewer mothers participating in the labor force compared to September 2019 (same in October; Nov. numbers coming). That is a 6% lingering decrease in mother's labor force participation.

A new NPR analysis reveals that pro-Trump counties now have a higher death rate from COVID-19 than counties that voted for Joe Biden. Mistrust and vaccine misinformation are to blame.

The first time @sangerkatz & I wrote about a post-Roe world, in 2019, it seemed like a remote possibility. After last week, it seems likely. It would be different from pre-Roe. But abortion would be prohibitively hard for poor women in the South & Midwest:

Also interesting to me how Amy Coney Barrett and Elizabeth Warren have used the stories of their aunts’ help with child care—Warren to argue that government child care subsidies are essential, and Barrett to imply that families can figure it out on their own.

People who are against abortion rights have been pointing to ACB during the Mississippi hearings as proof that Roe isn’t necessary — if she could have 7 kids and a big job, their argument goes, couldn’t anyone?

“I want to know about her childcare arrangements not because I question whether they allow her to do her job but because I wonder how the rest of us are expected to do ours.” @lydiakiesling on how Barrett demonstrates just how individual the child care challenge is in the US

Reminder that Amy Coney Barrett's childcare platform is "a basket of toys in the office and 16 Years of My Husband's Aunt in the home"

“If the need for abortion rights is “decades out of date,” [as the state claims], there is a justification for overturning precedent. A large body of research tells a more complex story…becoming a mother still has a significant economic impact. So does being denied an abortion.”

Mississippi, arguing that Roe is no longer necessary, said it's easier for women to "pursue both career success & a rich family life." It cited parental leave, child care help & strong pregnancy discrimination laws. But these things don't exist in the US:

There's a legal reason for Mississippi to make the case that things have become much easier for mothers: If so much has changed, it's reason to overturn precedent.
