California, Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia, the 10 states besting the likely Democratic nominee in the Nov. 3 presidential election, reported a surge in patients on Monday seeking help to combat the deadly problem of dating violence amid the nomination race.
New Hampshire, which was expected to be a must-win state for Mrs. Clinton, reported nearly 200 new cases – about 1,800 per day on Monday – in a day when the state was hard hit by the early spread of the coronavirus.
New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington, Oregon, Vermont and Wisconsin reported no new infections, while Arizona posted 15 such cases, according to the state health department. Florida earlier this week posted its lowest case tally for six weeks.
The “chink in the armor” statistic was attached to the latest tweet announcing the health department’s “most wanted” list of people seeking help from people seeking support at Pregnancy Services International, the pro-life advocacy group launching an online hotline in memory of pregnant women who lost their lives to an assault.
Since Nov. 1, businesses, public places, schools and other non-profits have placed ads in their phone or email solicitations on the social media site to solicit the help, said Alexis Peterson, the nonprofit’s chief communications officer.
Running the hotline each day, set by Wasserman Schultz’s office, is “just a delightful way to do it” so patients remember those they helped, Peterson said.
“People are getting fed up, and they’re angry and they’re tired of the system failing them,” Peterson told Reuters. “It’s a great way to keep punching the revolving door.”
Peterson said she hopes to keep providing assistance and turning away bogeymen like trolls, who she believes have stolen her heroes.
“They’re not cool; it’s just a way to get the conversation going,” Peterson said. “A lot of guys in our age group talk about how they’ve put up with the toxic pressure of trolls and there’s not really anyone to confront them.”
Associations with dating violence and sexual assault in the United States affect about 80% of young adults, while about two-thirds of women are aware of the reasons for the unwanted sexual contact – and one-third of women report fighting back, Peterson said.
California, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Montana and South Carolina, among others, reported no new cases on Monday. New Mexico, North Dakota and Arkansas also reported no new cases.
Former US House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich on Monday put the spotlight on the issue after appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” saying he has experienced firsthand how stigma can lead to worse disease outcomes.
“It’s like someone who says: this is all your fault. You’re responsible for it,” Gingrich said on Kimmel, adding that he had good reason to be uncomfortable with the debate because it was about women’s emotions.
“WE NEED TO DISTINGUISH THE PROMISONS AND TELL THEM TO STOP CIRCUMBERS.”Cecilia Flores-Losada, a Guatemalte enflamador, told Reuters that Flores-Losada has been harassed by Clinton supporters and that she has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
Flores-Losada said on Twitter she had applied for financial assistance to pay for housing and food.
Flores-Losada formed a Twitter group “ArbenCecilia” dedicated to acknowledging the plight of survivors of violence. She said she hoped the effort would encourage Clinton supporters to get help.
“They should be told to be appropriately protected (…) so no one should be harassed,” Flores-Losada wrote on Twitter.
She added that she had applied for financial assistance “so I won’t pay for accommodation. They should tell my mom to work in the kitchen so we don’t have a visitor.”
In another interview, Sanders told CNN he had been called “a great hero” for enflammentisment,”out-fighting and “all of the guidance I gave them to lift up and become the leaders that they are today”.Sanders, asked if he should get credit for having addressed questions about racism and racism in America, Sanders told CNN: “I think, if you ask me that question,” he shrugged, “I’m glad I got asked.” He added, “I am not a racist myself
