I requested documents from Johnson & Johnson b/c I'm troubled by reports of an alleged decades-long effort by them to potentially mislead regulators & consumers about the safety of one of its products—which is used by parents & children across the country. https://t.co/raodNUVNpF
It's wrong that survivors of the horrific abuse Jeffrey Epstein committed were denied information about the plea deal ‘of a lifetime’ that now-@LaborSec helped negotiate. I’ll keep pushing for answers to make sure nothing like this happens again. https://t.co/BNL8PqlyXD
Johnson & Johnson may have known for decades that small amounts of asbestos had been found in its talc & powder products. This would be unacceptable, & this cover up may have resulted in long-term harm for men, women, & children who used their baby powder. https://t.co/ayg98bGsul
ICYMI: @SenateMajLdr McConnell announced a vote for next week on an anti-women's health bill that leading medical organizations have vocally opposed. Democrats stand with women, doctors, nurses, & everyone who cares about women’s health to make sure this bill doesn't become law.
Under the #TitleX gag rule, doctors and providers who millions of women trust—disproportionately women of color and women who rely on clinics for affordable care—will be blocked from offering them the full range of repro health options b/c politicians think they know better.
The anti-women's health bill that @SenateMajLdr McConnell announced is coming up for a vote would put @VP Pence & Republicans right where they don’t belong—in between a woman & her health care provider as she's making personal health decisions. It's unnecessary & harmful.
Justice Kavanaugh has started attacking Roe v. Wade from the bench—& that means women & men who believe women should have access to safe, legal abortion must stand up stronger than ever for women’s constitutionally protected health care rights. I’m ready & I hope you are too.
Republicans are blocking the release of Judge Kavanaugh’s complete record & President Trump appears to be an unindicted co-conspirator to a federal crime. Put together, that’s more than enough reason to wait before we hold hearings to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court.
There is no urgency to fill this seat before October. Republicans held a Supreme Court seat open for more than a year all to prevent President Obama from fulfilling his constitutional role. Surely we can take the time we need now in order to fulfill OUR constitutional role.
