    Thanks for that Ursus,

    It was planned Parenthood I had heard the allegations against, abortions in the poor areas and fertility treatments in the more well off areas.

      Interesting

      Planned Parenthood has some gruesomely eugenic skeletons in its origins that it is still dealing with, but I don't associate them with fertility treatments.

      Though that may be because fertility treatments in Manhattan are largely ultra-high end for profit medicine, with offices on Park or Fifth and prices to match. Exceeded in this respect only by cosmetic surgery.

        On white supremacy generally, I recommend the Race and Democracy podcast. Latest episode is on James Baldwin:

                  I don't think that they are going to be able to silence everyone

                  Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) filed a court motion Wednesday seeking to bar an unidentified grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case from speaking about the proceedings, which the juror alleges Cameron has publicly mischaracterized.

                  The motion comes the same day as the city of Louisville released a trove of documents from the police department’s internal investigation into the fatal shooting of Taylor while officers carried out a search warrant in March. The documents show other Louisville officers criticizing the raid and cast doubt on the police department’s justifications for the warrant, a key question addressed only in passing in recently released audio of the grand jury proceedings.

                    This is getting worse by the day.
                    It's going to be hard for Cameron to escape with his career intact here.
                    The police and their unions will close ranks and protect each other as per usual.

                      Well, you are the last person I need to tell that they will be quite happy to throw him under the bus for this. It is to a large extent what he is there for in the first place.

                          The whole magistrate thing is just bizarre and mediaeval.

                              So we now find out that Amy Cooper (the dog lady in Central Park who called the cops on the black guy) called 911 a second time to say that Christian Cooper had assaulted her.

                                "then later claiming he had tried to assaulted her."

                                Get it together, NYTimes.

                                In fairness, I've published many mistakes like that. But I don't have professional copyeditors. I guess the times doesn't either.

                                  It would be interested to know the thoughts of anyone who was trying to defend her on OTF.

                                  Again, I'm not really surprised here. Her level of playacting would have embarrassed Neymar.

                                    You can't mean me! I didnt defend her but did say despite her behaviour she shouldn't be charged with attempted murder as some were advocating

                                      That's baiting someone. If you have an issue, talk to them directly via PM and see if they want to continue the discussion. But don't pull this stuff.

                                        I didn't think i was baiting, but i will leave it be.

                                          He means me (again). I didn't defend her either, as *most* people on here understood. Her behaviour is *even worse* than we were led to believe, and it's very fortunate that the person she bore false witness regarding was not hurt by the police.

                                          Still think he acted like a dick (don’t call someone’s dog over and say “you won’t like what I do”, then expect someone to regard you as a harmless birdwatcher, it’s disingenuous at best) but yes, she did wrong and was punished. As I said before.

                                            Given how much leaks out of the NYPD and the sheer volume of overeager stenographers they have in the local (and even national) media, it is interesting to me that the existence of the second call has only leaked on the verge of a plea deal.
