Brett Kavanaugh Is a Threat to Disabled People’s Rights - Tonic
Kavanaugh’s record suggests he doesn’t recognize the inherent humanity and value of women like Weintraub and the disability community at large. One significant concern is Kavanaugh’s opinion in Doe v D.C., a case that involved three developmentally disabled women who received elective surgery without consent — two of the women had abortions, and another had eye surgery. Kavanaugh was tasked with determining whether the District of Columbia had violated its own policies and the women’s autonomy by proceeding with surgeries without consulting them.

He ruled no, claiming because they lacked legal capacity, their wishes didn’t need to be considered. This rings alarm bells for the disability community, which has faced a long history of forcible medical procedures including abortion and sterilization. It also has bigger implications for the discussion about disability and autonomy, especially in light of the movement to reform guardianship.
Further, Kavanaugh hasn’t ruled favorably in a number of cases delving into issues like employment discrimination where he ruled against a disabled employee in a discrimination suit, and the right to education for the disability community, as in a 2007 case where he overturned a court order requiring the District of Columbia to provide education services to an incarcerated minor. As Senator Tammy Duckworth noted in an opinion editorial for Time, many in the disability community are worried about what this means for the future of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), landmark legislation that has been used extremely successfully to defend civil rights for the disability community.

Volksentscheid Gesunde Krankenhäuser
Laut Gewerkschaft ver.di fehlen ca. 3000 Pflegestellen in Berliner Krankenhäusern.
Wer kennt es nicht: überlastete Pflegekräfte, überfüllte Rettungsstellen, zu wenig Zeit für die Versorgung von Patientinnen und Patienten. Der Grund: Überall wurden Stellen abgebaut, um mit geringeren Kosten möglichst viel Gewinn zu machen.
Um das Wohl und die Sicherheit von Patientinnen und Patienten zu gewährleisten, haben wir den Volksentscheid für Gesunde Krankenhäuser gestartet.
