"Name is Daniel Brühl, and I'm from this neighborhood. My parents are from Dominican Republic and I want to share just like a little story I had in my life in school. I was a little bullied a lot because people would say that I'm pretty annoying and stuff and now that I'm in like 6 and 7th grade, I'm more of like a relaxed person, I guess. I don't really say a lot of people. And if someone does say something to me, I'd stand up for myself, that kind of like lets me down, but now I don't let it ruin my day and I just go on my name is Jacqueline Stevens.

"The storm is about 60 miles south of Saint Croix, forecasters say Fiona could dump up to a foot of rain in parts of Puerto Rico today. The storm is expected to pass over the Dominican Republic on Sunday and turn north along the U.S. east coast. That's the latest I'm Julie Ryan. You're listening to balance of power with David Westin on Bloomberg radio. This week president Joe Biden celebrated the passage of the inflation reduction act. His signature climate and tax law, while ignoring worse than expected inflation data from August that was released the very same day. This bill finally delivers on a promise that I've made in the American people for decades. But Republicans choose not to join us. In the end, every single public we're going to be voted against this historic law. For more on the Democrat strategy to keep control of Congress in the midterm elections, I talked to House majority leader steny Hoyer. Well, I think we had an extraordinary session. I've been in the Congress David as you probably know since 1981. I think this is one of the most productive congresses in which I've served. We started the Congress doing the American rescue plan, which invested in businesses staying in business, getting kids in school and 250 million shots in arms, which is why I go to a lot of meetings now, people are not wearing masks and they're coming to in person meetings. We then pass an infrastructure Bill, by the way, on that first bill, there were no Republican votes either in the Senate or the House. Next, we passed the infrastructure Bill, which invest as Trump said he was going to do, but did not do for four years. Substantial money in building America's infrastructure and competitiveness in the electric grid in clean water, making sure that America was going to be competitive in the 21st century and would have the services that our business is an individual's need. And then next, we pass the chips and science Bill, a major investment in making it in America, making sure that America's manufacturing sector is not relying on the unreliable overseas supply lines, interruption, supply lines, major, major piece of legislation that was also bipartisan. 19 senator Republican senators, sadly, only 13 Republicans, and I think a lot more for it, but their leadership didn't want Biden and the victory. And then lastly, we passed the inflation reduction act. Which was another major investment in our in our country and our people and an extraordinary investment in meeting the climate challenge that we see presented almost weekly in these disastrous natural disasters that are occurring. And also invest obviously as well in alternative energy sites so that we can be more energy efficient and less harmful to the environment. So a very, very productive session in my view. In addition to that, we passed a gun safety bill for our communities. The first in 25 years to get through the Congress and got through on a bipartisan basis. There are a lot of other significant pieces of legislation that we voted on in the house that unfortunately hasn't passed the Senate. Is there anything more that you think realistically, this Congress can get done this fall? Well, one of the things, David, we have to do, obviously, is a past funding for the next fiscal year. We haven't done that yet. The house has passed 6 of our appropriation bills. I have 6 left to pass. Unfortunately, the Senate has not passed any, so we're going to have to pass what we call a continuing resolution, which is simply giving agencies the authorization to spend money to keep government operating after September 30th, which is the end of our fiscal year. I think the Senate is going to move on that first. I talked to the Senate majority leader, I've talked to the speaker about that and we believe that the Senate will move first. But that's the most important bill we have to do, but we're going to be doing other important pieces of legislation, including trying to make sure that the civil service system is respected and not undermined, making sure that we have an opportunity to have oversight, obviously we still have the commission on January 6th that is operating. So there are a number of things left to do. And we're going to be doing them. The majority of you said something really important there, the continuing resolution would simply be refund. The question is how simple will it be? Because there are proposals that so called permitting reform be included, something that was apparently promised to senator Manchin as part of getting that inflation reduction act through. That is not necessarily simple because I know you have something like 70 members of the House on your side in the democratic side who don't like it. Well, I'm staying out, but they very much liked the bill that we passed, which was part of apparently an agreement between senator Manchin and senator Schumer and I've talked to senator Schumer. They are moving forward with that. We think that passing the continuing resolution will be critically important. Simple in the perspective that it will not be funding permanently the government will have to do an omnibus appropriation bill later in the year, probably in December. To fully fund the government. But the permitting provision that senator Schumer and senator Manchin talked about, you're correct. That is controversial on our side. There are a number of people who are talking about that. We'll see what the Senate does on that because my expectation is the Senate will move on the continuing resolution and we'll see how the mansion agreement is included in that document and take it from there. But we'll have to convince our members if it is included. And that we need to pass a continuing resolution. And somebody with your experience, I'm sure it doesn't like to talk about hypotheticals, but let's assume the Senate does include it. Do you think that you can get it through your side in the house? Well, we'll have to talk to our members, you know, I don't want to say that that is a fact at this point in time. Our members are concerned about that. We'll have to see exactly what the language of that agreement is, which is to try to, as I understand it, accelerate

The Lef's Division of Right and Wrong
"Okay, we continue with the Tucker Carlson's discussion of what is as clear as possible the left wing division of right and wrong is not the normative one. If a black commits evil for many leftists, it's understandable. And a white who was innocent is evil. Because he's white. In this case, I don't know if even the Dominican would be called white. But a Dominican man was attacked in his store by a guy with a rap sheet, a guy who is a thug, but the thug happens to be the same color as the district attorney, and even if the district attorney were white, as in the cases of Philadelphia and Los Angeles, San Francisco, it would be the same thing.

"Therapist and trauma specialist Rest Dominican, together with Robin D'Angelo, the author of white fragility. I feel like in both of your work. And this is not enough, right? In some ways. This isn't even an answer to the question of how to begin, but there is a necessity and virtue. Of white people of me letting myself be uncomfortable. Hmm. But at the same time, think about the language of violence. So many white people use to describe that discomfort. So we say things like, Well, I'm not going to have that conversation because I don't want to be attacked. Yeah, attacked right that. That's it, you know, and we're and we're only talking about some, you know, chosen moment of discomfort in a conversation and what a perversion of the true direction of violence. Yeah. You know that we've been perpetrating or in our name for hundreds of years and that lead to this idea about allies. Um so I don't I do not call myself an ally. I do not even say I'm an anti racist. I will say I'm involved in answer a racist work. But it's really for resume to decide. If in any given moment, I'm actually behaving in allied or anti racist ways and notice that in any given moment, it's not like a fixed status. And I'm the least qualified to make that determination because Have investments in this system that I don't even know I have, like, I can't really trust myself. So I have to have accountability kind of set up around me. You know, I want to keep going with all of this and I do before we go too much farther. I want to ask each of you How you're thinking about What has just happened in 2020. You know the pandemic upon the pandemic or the awakening to the racial pandemic that had been with us? But I want I just wonder how you how you've understood what what has happened. That may be significant that maybe knew from what you've already been attending to in your lives and work. So I've been taken to calling. A friend of mine had a a instagram picture up and he had a mask on and on, Damascus said. I'm still dealing with Covid 16 19 not just covid 19. And that's true for me that the weathering effects of White body supremacy has affected my very skeletal structure has affected my respiratory system has affected my cardiovascular system. Has affected my my mom was cardiovascular say her mother is good. I mean, I mean, the the effects of racial ization and white body supremacy, and the weathering effects of it is why Covid 19 has run. Rampant through my communities and run rampant through the East African community is because One of the things is that the systems have tinder rised our physical systems to the point to where Covid just kind of set up shop and In red shop because our bodies were already weathered. And so That in addition to Covid, and then in addition to Sister Brianna Taylor, getting murdered brother are very getting murdered brother Um Floyd in the countless before and a countless since then. This is I just have to say that Um This is this is brutal. This is brutality and viciousness at a level that when white folks and ally say that their allies and what can we do, and you think you're being helpful, or what should I do now? And you think you're being helpful? There is such a brutality to your words that you know many times, you know, I can't fool with white folks. I can't. I can't be around you. I need you to leave me alone. I need you. You know to to not ask me what my opinion airs. Of a black man getting murdered, Um, with with no regard, And so for me. This idea about Ally ship really does Fall into the level of will fall into the place of of whether or not white people have the capacity to stop what I called declarations of independence declarations of I'm not racist declarations of Ally declarations that I'm a good individual, white person and they're going to have to start really. Beginning to figure out how to build culture around abolishing white supremacy. Anything other than that, for me really is you've heard me say this before, really is performance art. It is not. It is not real. If you're not going to be with other white bodies for 3 to 10 years, grinding on specifically about race and specifically about the things that show up when white bodies get together. To build culture then then I can't fool with you. I'm not. I'm not. Um, I'm not interested in your credentialing or your your virtue, signaling it means nothing to me. Because I know that when I go home, and my son is getting ready to go and get in the car and drive off that my stomach feels like it's going to fall out that my that when I watched my wife Have to go interact with these organizations in these structures that are brutalizing her. I know that that's going to continue for me. Even when you tell me you're an ally. Mhm. Um, I just want to like Offer to white listeners. If you're if you're feeling frustrated, just watch what's coming up for you as you as you hear resumes. Hopelessness and you start to have feelings. And some of them may be anger, right? Like why are you not giving me hope? Why are you not making me feel better? What am I supposed to do? Just notice all of that? It's a different way of breaking through the apathy of whiteness, and it's not going to be a kind of tie it up in a ball. I mean, much less resume. Give me home, right? Um, it's a kind of let's break through how deep the the apathy is and use your umbrage if you're feeling it to to motivate Europe. What Europe along Show him that you can be trusted that we can be trusted. But just But hope is such a tool in a way of whiteness. And we've we've dangled that tool in front of black people for 400 years. And we.

"Yes yeah and guys. I think we've we've we've heard such you know horrible stories of situations of women being so desperate but then you you forget how desperate how desperate can feel if you have no no out in something like this. That's that's hard on the yeah. Yeah it's very hard and so what these activists want is for the system to take on this issue so that women can go to a hospital and can get an abortion in a way that is safe in a way. That is secure again. These are circumstances were basically women. Don't have to be victimized by the circumstances under which they got pregnant rice over. We're talking about someone who got pregnant because of a rape case if then you're telling that person that they cannot get an abortion you are re victimizing them and when it comes to women who are at risk because of their pregnancy. These are some of the cases that have gotten the most attention especially the case of asada whose nickname is has been on cpa so she was the sixteen year old girl that she needed Cancer treatment for leukemia and it was denied by the doctors because she was pregnant and she ended up passing away. Old mundi is holding kepala. Come into your komo. Speranza level center.

Is that if it's been on cpa hadn't been pregnant or if she had been a man she would have gotten the treatment that the medical protocol for a case like this is to end the pregnancy in the first trimester so that the patients can get the treatment. This is a case that happens over ten years ago and her mom has been very outspoken to this day about how she says. The system basically took her daughter from her. He is have the we that omitted in jail. And this is actually case that was taken on by the interamerican commission of human rights because even from an international standpoint.

Also so activists and feminists to the street in that moment to protest and to the man that these three cow stylist be included in the the new penal code. So it's interesting. Because i think people understand that abortion rights are under attack in the united states but basically you're having feminists and their allies and other women say basically. We just want you to say it's okay to get an abortion if there's incest rape or the woman's life is is in danger and even that is a a source for a tremendous amount of activism so in certain countries going ahead and getting an abortion can have some really tough consequences as well for example. Tell us about what happens in el salvador to a woman who wants to get an abortion in el salvador. It's also completely illegal to get an abortion. Under any circumstances the punishment there is harsh. Women can face over thirty years in prison and at least eighteen. Women have actually been prosecuted and imprisoned even though we have this penal code here in dominican republic. They're very few cases that actually get prosecuted by law. Basically the police doesn't really pursue these cases For the most part unlike in salvador however there have been cases the haven't pursued like one of twenty year old woman who was given pain medication and she ended up going to the hospital. Losing the baby and she was taken to trial because she was accused of having an abortion. And it's interesting. Because i was reading the news about what's happening in the united states now and with rovers wade going back into the supreme court. That's essentially what would happen in the. Us what is already happening here. It's that abortion would only be accessible to those who can afford it all right so if you are not wealthy and you need to get an abortion in the dominican republic. Amanda you've been doing reporting on On the ground in the dr. So tell us a little bit about what you learned about what that looks like for women right now. I spoke to colleges. And i spoke to several people who confirmed that getting an abortion. Here is possible but only for women who are able to pay. So when that's up happening. Is that women who live in poverty. Women who are marginalized women who are disenfranchised do not have access to an abortion and this creates a situation of inequality. This is leeann fonder the gynecologist i spoke with i. You need to have the information at it costs money any time because it's not losing who worship if you are twenty five what if you are fifteen is not saying because you don't have spews you don't having for major how to do it as gynecologist. She has attended many teenage girls. Who got pregnant in some cases against their will when it comes to underage girls giving birth data from the national office of statistics show the number of cases of persons under fourteen years old giving birth and they were alarming in the last ten years. There's been thirty. Four thousand three hundred and seven cases in the caribbean dominican republic. Guyana have the highest lesson. Pregnancy numbers is it crime and law to have said child. What is just in the bigger if you are under fifteen your but you also complete human being to to be responsible for other people. It's very difficult for women living in poverty to have an abortion and at times what happens is that women take matters into their own hands and put their own life at risk so the symbol of the batch. Our the hangar was something that was used by artists in during the protest to represent that women use hangers clothing hangers to to perform abortions on themselves. There was a case where a woman hit her stomach with a block of cement a block of concrete in order to induce an abortion. Goodness.

"Pretty particular. They were saying less. Today's cows silas which can basically be translated into the three grounds or the three circumstances. So that's a less three scou- sally's i mean it's like it's it doesn't roll right off of your tongue. I'm trying to think of ever used the word. Gauss silas anywhere in my life in spanish. And i'm like. I don't think i've ever used that word. So kisses to the last three days. Cow sally's yes. So the silence. Which was a word that i've personally gotten very used to saying because i've been in the middle of these protests They're basically three circumstances under which women would be allowed to have an abortion and these are considered sort of the basic circumstances right. So it's when there has been a case of rape or incest when the fetus non non-viable and when the health of the woman is at risk and the thing is my these are considered basic human rights. So it's actually a big deal to have these three cow sally's because in some places you don't have any in other words. Abortion is illegal. No if ands or buts right yes. That's right and one of those places is the dominican republic so in the dominican republic. Right now even if a woman's life is at risk even if there's a case of incest illegal for them to seek an abortion yes yes it's illegal and there have been cases of women and girls who have passed away because they haven't had access to abortion while being at the hospital while doctors know that this could save their life and it's honestly very angering was it's like basic you know it's like the minimum rice so people are not asking for free abortion access. This is rather only under these three cases and it has been very very difficult for feminist activists and women to get these three approved because conservatives and christians have such a strong hold on the government here and that's stronghold on the government isn't new in fact. This law is based on a penal code. That was passed in the year. And so okay. Let me get this right here. This penal code was passed in the year. Eighteen eighty four. And it's still being used. I mean are we serious here. Yes yes we are serious. When i first reported on this story. I'm going to be honest with you. I wrote nine nineteen four. Because i thought that was the right number and then when i was fact checking it blew my mind that it was actually eighteen eighty four. So how does that. Eighteen eighty four penal code. Have anything to do with what's happening now in terms of women and reproductive rights right now the penal code says women can go to prison for up to two years if they have an abortion and up to twenty years for doctors who practice abortions. Wow so what's happening now. Is that the penal code is actually being reviewed by this new government. That was sworn in last year. If you remember the story that we did hear that i spoke to you about the previous ruling party had been in government for about sixteen years and last year. The dominican republic made history when they voted in a new government headed by salvino there during his campaign. He said that he was in favor of the three gosselies. And then when he became president one of the things new government took on was revising the penal code however when they initially presented their reform in congress it did not include the three calls sally's so did the candidate of united make a promise during his campaign to kind of deliver on.
