Breastfeeding During the COVID-19 Pandemic

"Yes, babies can still receive breast milk even if you test positive for COVID-19.

Direct breastfeeding. If you want to breastfeed directly, wash your hands with soap and water before holding your baby and wear a cloth face covering while nursing. Holding your baby skin-to-skin helps the baby latch on and also helps trigger milk release.

Pumping breast milk. To pump or express your breast milk, put on a cloth face covering, wash your hands well and clean any pump parts, bottles and artificial nipples. Express milk as often as your baby eats, or at least 6 to 8 times per 24 hours. The expressed milk can be fed to your baby by a healthy caregiver.

Remind all caregivers to wash their hands before touching bottles or feeding your baby. Remember to clean your breast pump after each use."

That was an excerpt from an article by Temitope Awelewa, MBCHB, MPH, FAAP, IBCLC, posted on Healthy Children and last updated on July 31. The author answers a number of questions related to breastfeeding and COVID.

How the Pandemic Defeated America

A virus has brought the world’s most powerful country to its knees.

"COVID‑19 is an assault on America’s body, and a referendum on the ideas that animate its culture. Recovery is possible, but it demands radical introspection. America would be wise to help reverse the ruination of the natural world, a process that continues to shunt animal diseases into human bodies. It should strive to prevent sickness instead of profiting from it. It should build a health-care system that prizes resilience over brittle efficiency, and an information system that favors light over heat. It should rebuild its international alliances, its social safety net, and its trust in empiricism. It should address the health inequities that flow from its history. Not least, it should elect leaders with sound judgment, high character, and respect for science, logic, and reason.

The pandemic has been both tragedy and teacher. Its very etymology offers a clue about what is at stake in the greatest challenges of the future, and what is needed to address them. Pandemic. Pan and demos. All people."

That was the conclusion of Ed Yong's article, included in The Atlantic's September 2020 Issue. If you're looking for a deep dive into everything that went wrong (and continues to go wrong), this one's for you. And it does include a few glimmers of hope.

 Repeal Helms 2020: Social Media Toolkit (Source: Ms. Magazine)

First-Ever Legislation to Repeal Helms Amendment:
Abortion Is Health Care Everywhere Act

"Today, Congress introduced the Abortion is Health Care Everywhere Act of 2020—the first-ever legislation to repeal the Helms Amendment. The bill was introduced by Rep. Jan Schakowksy (D-Ill.) and co-sponsored by Reps. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Norma Torres (D-Calif.).

Established in 1973 (notably the same year as the Roe decision), the Helms Amendment—introduced by former Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), an ultraconservative senator marked by blatant racism and other odious behavior—dictates U.S. foreign aid cannot be used for abortions.

Though there are exceptions for rape, incest and threat to the pregnant person’s life, in practice, the Helms Amendment has created a complete ban on abortion funding abroad—even in countries where abortion is legal.

Since its enactment, the Helms Amendment has been criticized as an imperialist, ideological, racist and classist policy."

That was the beginning of Sarah Montgomery's article, posted a week ago on Ms. Magazine. Continue reading, and let's hope this inhumane and imperialist amendment is finally thrown into the dustbin of history. NSRH was one of over 115 organizations that endorsed the Abortion is Healthcare Everywhere Act.

P.S. Next -- repeal the Hyde Amendment!

'We Need to See His Plan': Rights Groups Push Biden to Commit to Ending All Abortion Coverage Restrictions

"It's not enough for abortion to be legal. It must also be affordable and available to all people, however much money they have or however they get their insurance."

On Monday, the ACLU and the All* Above All Action Fund launched a digital postcard campaign aimed at pressuring Biden to "make a firm commitment to remove all abortion coverage restrictions from his first budget, and tell Congress he won't sign bills with abortion coverage restrictions, if he is elected."

The groups plan to mass deliver the messages demanding a specific plan to repeal Hyde to Biden's campaign headquarters in Philadelphia ahead of the Democratic National Convention later this month.

"To end Hyde, we need bold leadership from the next president," reads a sample postcard. "Politicians can no longer call themselves pro-choice without concrete commitments to ensure abortion coverage for all. Consider this your notice.""

The was an excerpt from Jake Johnson's article, posted yesterday on Common Dreams. Yep -- abortion is healthcare. And yep -- coverage for all.
