Today my brother would be 50. In 1988, who imagined 90% ppl w #cysticfibrosis would have access to the treatments we have today? I feel like curling up in a ball w/my feelings. Instead, I'll drive to Bklyn, get his fave cookies & celebrate his too short life #fucf @CF_Foundation

If a woman lives in a state where abortion is illegal, it IS legal to travel to another state where she can access an abortion, says @POTUS . So donate to #abortion funds that provide funding, travel, lodging, and other wrap-around supports #RoeVsWade

For everyone who voted for Trump b/c you are a "fiscal conservative," "taxes," or "Israel," you did this. This is what the map looks like for women's healthcare rights. @washingtonpost

One of the most pivotal things you can do at this moment is to support abortion funds. Abortion funds provide funding, travel, lodging, and other wrap-around supports. This network of abortion funds exists to fill the gaps in care

Make no mistake: this decision will kill people, and our Supreme Court simply does not care.

The #SupremeCourt just destroyed 50 years of progress by overturning Roe v. Wade, and put the health and lives of millions across the U.S. into question. To those defending abortion rights and those scared of the future: I will always use the power of my office to fight for you.

Today the Supreme Court rolled back the rights of millions of Americans, disregarding their interests and — more importantly — their lives. Access to abortion is a fundamental human right, and it remains safe, accessible, and legal in New York.

Reproductive care is health care. Abortion is health care. Today's decision puts lives at risk. Anyone looking for more information on abortion providers, payment support, and additional resources available can visit:

SCOTUS just gave the go-ahead for concealed guns to flood into our neighborhoods -- while hiding *themselves* behind metal fences. @yuhline will fight to make ALL of us safer from gun violence, not just the elites. Help me elect her to Congress in #NY10 :
