    Earlier Feminist Leaders Like Susan B. Anthony Opposed Abortion
    By Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie – January 22, 2020 | 6:31PM WDC

    But one right the early feminists did not fight for was the right to abortion. On the contrary, they understood abortion not as a woman’s right, but a wrong against our sex. It is today’s pro-life women that fully preserve the suffragists’ ideals.

    Brexit bill passes parliament as Johnson overturns Lords amendments

    Opposition MPs condemn government after defeat of Dubs measure on child refugees

    Boris Johnson’s Brexit bill has cleared its last hurdle after the government overturned five House of Lords amendments to it, including one that would have restored the right of unaccompanied child refugees to be reunited with their families in the UK.

    The legislation is expected to gain royal assent within days after peers agreed to end the parliamentary “ping-pong” phase where it moves between the two houses until agreement is reached.

    While the passage of the withdrawal agreement bill (Wab), which puts the deal into legislation, became a formality after Johnson won a significant majority in December’s election, it is nonetheless a symbolically significant moment after Theresa May’s plan was rejected by MPs three times.

    In a brief comment calling for an end to “rancour and division”, Johnson said: “At times it felt like we would never cross the Brexit finish line, but we’ve done it.”

    There was, however, some final controversy, as opposition MPs condemned the government for ordering Conservative MPs to oppose an amendment drafted by Alf Dubs, the Labour peer and former child refugee, guaranteeing family reunion rights. Lord Dubs called the move “bitterly disappointing”.

    The amendment, passed in the Lords on Tuesday, was rejected in the Commons by 342 votes to 254. All those who voted against were Conservatives.

    Good morning y’all. Warming up a little here today. Unfortunately the rains come back, and more rain next week too. It hasn’t rained here since Saturday but the ground is so muddy still. Feels like we are never going to dry out.

    Hoping your weather is better than ours! Some people down here already had daffodils bloom. The past few days cold spell has killed those off though.

    Lovely, Stella, Lucille, and litenmaus, I’m wondering how much snow you guys got. Hope all are warm and snuggled in with a good book.
