Late-term abortions have been in the news quite a bit lately due to recent decisions by some states to allow abortions after 24 weeks when medically necessitated.
But, there’s a lot of misinformation out there about late-term abortions.
Like, a lot.
The phrase “late-term abortion” is used to refer to abortions later in pregnancy, typically those after 21 weeks or more of pregnancy.
Dr. Jennifer Gunter, a board-certified gynecologist, took to Twitter to share her experiences and drop some truth regarding these abortions.
Non medically indicated = for no health-related reason. Dr. Gunter means that every single late term abortion she ever performed was for a significant medical reason.
She can think of one case where there are no fetal anomalies, and that one has some pretty horrific circumstances. The rest …
Clearly, no one is making these decisions lightly.
These are tragic situations, and those who are facing these decisions should be treated with empathy and understanding, not judgment.

We all have our pet peeves. I know I certainly do. Some of the things I’m petty about are, admittedly, pretty stupid – like my hatred of large tablespoons. I hate the way they feel in my mouth. I’m #TeamSmallerSpoons all day.
With that in mind, let’s have a look at the seemingly inconsequential things that really annoy the hell out of other people, shall we?
This tweet got the ball rolling:
1. What even is that
3. Sidewalk hogs
4. Drives me nuts
5. Doesn’t work like that
6. Relax, buddy
7. Grammar patrol
8. What would the south think?
9. That’s what it means
10. The least you could do
12. Mobile etiquette
13. Yeah, so anyway…
14. LEAVE ME ALONE
15. Just wrong
16. *Rips hair out*
18. Oh lord, yes
19. Please clear. PLEASE.
20. Don’t get her started
I don’t know about you, but I see myself in some of these tweets.

Have you seen those ads for Peloton stationary bikes lately? They’re everywhere, and honestly, they’re kind of ridiculous.
Clue Heywood pointed out the silliness of these ads on a viral Twitter thread:
Why wouldn’t you? It’s not like it’s an eyesore or anything.
I mean, it’s what I do with my zen garden/home gym.
Show it off to your neighbors!
What do you mean everyone doesn’t have a conservatory?
Love the peacock.
This is my favorite though …
Who thought this photo was a good idea? The child is in the freaking corner? Good lord.
Peloton bikes: they’re expensive and ridiculous.

“Today years old” is the latest meme to take the internet by storm. It’s where people post things they only just learned recently that has completely changed the way they look at something. Basically, tidbits of knowledge that should be common but are somehow…not.
Read through this list of 15 good ones, and I bet you’ll have your mind blown at least once!
#1. I guess it had to stand for something?
#2. Trying this ASAP.
#3. Am I wrong, or is this adorable?

Let’s face it, chivalry is definitely a lost art these days. People just aren’t as nice as they used to be. If you’ve any doubts as to the truth of those words, just check out this true story by Twitter user Brydie Lee-Kennedy, an 8-months-pregnant woman who did not hesitate to share her tale of woe with the world.
Basically, there was one seat left, she was exhausted and carrying extra weight, and some guy thought his bag (and hand) needed the space more than she did. So, she sat on his hand and his bag, which apparently he still refused to move so they spent the rest of the ride in some sort of silent standoff.
Plenty of other women chimed in to share their stories of similar occurrences. All of them are my heroes, and braver than I would have been in a similar situation, though the discomfort caused by late pregnancy often causes one to lose one’s filter.
This one, though, is my favorite. It honestly needs to be a scene in a movie.
Long story short? Don’t be stupid, rude and obtuse. Pay attention to the people around you who aren’t having the best of days.
And get off your ass if a giant pregnant woman is standing near you.

Parenting is an incredibly rewarding experience, but it’s definitely also hard, exhausting work. Newborns are especially tough to deal with because they’re constantly crying, pooping, or sleeping. That may not sound so bad, but wait until you experience a wailing newborn at 3:00 a.m. in the morning.
Newborns are tough, which is why I want to hug all 15 of these parents for making me laugh through my exhausted tears.
#1. This continues into toddlerhood but it can be any type of food or sticky substance, not just puke.
#2. Times two if you’re doing it with a partner.
#3. Mostly when you should be sleeping.
#4. There’s no way to turn those things off at the beginning.
#5. Totally normal question.
#6. That’s sure to freak some people out.
#7. Luckily, she won’t remember any of this.
#8. Wait, we’re supposed to change?
#9. I mean, nice try, though.
#10. We’ve all cried over spilt milk if we just spent 20 minutes pumping it in the middle of the night.
#11. The sleep deprivation is real.
#12. Because we’ve all tried.
#13. If it’s the latter I want to be friends with your kid.
#14. I’m good.
#15. See also: I’ve found my keys in the front door the next morning.
Clearly they’ve kept their senses of humor!

For some folks, being in a committed relationship is their ultimate goal, and playing the dating game just makes them miserable. For others, the single life is where it’s at, baby!
For one thing, being single is definitely easier. You have nobody to answer to but yourself – you can do whatever you want whenever you want. You don’t need to plan around anyone else’s schedule, or need to talk yourself out of a daily homicide because your husband can’t seem to put plates in a dishwasher that’s three feet away.
Here are 17 tweets that get that relationships aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, at least not all the time. If you’re single, here’s to you!
#1. Worth it?
#2. Honesty is the best policy and all of that.
#3. How to keep your girlfriend, 101.
#4. He should have known better.
#5. The important things.
#6. You’d better know where you stand.
#7. Best to just go all in.
#8. Do not listen to the man behind the curtain.
#9. When sexting becomes this.
#10. They have so much to learn.
#11. Until then, you’re on a need to know basis.
#12. Relationship goals.
#13. If you’ve never had this thought, then you’ve never seen the show.
#14. I mean, she’s wearing jeans.
#15. Tru Wuv.
#16. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to hope for.
#17. It’s a fine line.
So get tindering or whatever people do these days!

Ok, so I’ll be honest, that title probably isn’t a revelation but it really is accurate. We all pretty much already know that animals are hilarious and probably almost certainly better than people. But still, sometimes you just need to go out there and re-confirm everything.
Proof? These 17 tweets right here.
#1. I mean who doesn’t love a good pillow?
#2. Please don’t shoot the messenger, sire.
#3. So terribly worried…
#4. I got dis jacket?
#5. That’s a lot of bad PR to unravel.
#6. I love how he’s singing along.
#7. And fabulous.
#8. That last picture, though.

Animals – gotta love ’em!

The metric system vs. the imperial system is a debate that’s been raging forever. Not that it makes any sense since metric is clearly better. The metric system is logical and very easy to use. The imperial system, which is used pretty much just in America at this point, is not. It’s a confusing system that’s really hard to make calculations and conversions with.
Twitter user @innesmck recently discovered this fact, to his absolute horror… and he did NOT hold back on his feelings!
Sensibly, he digs a bit further into the magic of the imperial system.
I guess 14 and 16 are both even? I don’t know. I didn’t come up with this system.
He continues his decline into chaos.
Even his mother betrayed him.
And cups nearly end him.
It’s a conspiracy.
Now, it’s time for existential questions.
He’s clearly become unhinged.
And, of course, someone has to have fun with poor Innes.
He’s finally lost it.
I haven’t even heard of this one.
And here we leave Innes, a broken man.
Should we tell him about miles? Nah.
