Let me tell you some things.

I used to investigate child abuse and neglect. I can tell you how to stop the vast majority of abortion in the world.

First, make knowledge and access to contraception widely available. Start teaching kids before they hit puberty. Teach them about domestic violence and coercion, and teach them not to coerce and rape. Create a strong, loving community where women and girls feel safe and supported in times of need. Because guess what? They aren’t. You know what happens to babies born under such circumstances? They get hurt, unnecessarily. They get sick, unnecessarily. They get removed from parents who love them but who are unprepared for the burden of a child. Resources? Honey, we try. There aren’t enough resources anywhere. There are waiting lists, and promises, and maybes. If the government itself can’t hook people up, what makes you think an impoverished single mom can handle it?

Abolish poverty. Do you have any idea how much childcare costs? Daycare can cost as much or more than monthly rent. They may be inadequately staffed. Getting a private nanny is a nice idea, but they don’t come cheap either. Relatives? Do they own a car? Does the bus run at the right times? Do they have jobs of their own they need to work just to keep the lights on? Are they going to stick around until you get off you convenience store shift at 4 AM? Do they have criminal histories that will make them unsuitable as caregivers when CPS pokes around? You gonna pay for that? Who’s going to pay for that?

End rape. I know your type errs on the side of blaming the woman, but I’ve seen little girls who’ve barely gotten their periods pregnant because somebody thought raping preteens was an awesome idea. You want to put a child through that? Or someone with a mental or physical inability for whom pregnancy would be frightening, painful or even life-threatening? I’ve seen nonverbal kids who had their feet sliced up by caregivers for no fucking reason at all, you think sexual abuse doesn’t happen either?

You say there’s lots of couples who want to adopt. Kiddo, what they want to adopt are healthy white babies, preferably untainted by the wombs and genetics of women with alcohol or drug dependencies. I’ve seen the kids they don’t want, who almost no one wants. You people focus only on the happy pink babies, the gigglers, the ones who grow and grow with no trouble. Those are not the kids who linger in foster care. Those are certainly not the older kids and teenagers who age out of foster care and then are thrown out in the streets, usually with an array of medical and mental health issues. Are they too old to count?

And yeah, I’ve seen the babies, little hand-sized things barely clinging to life. There’s no glory, no wonder there. There is no wonder in a pregnant woman with five dollars to her name, so deep in depression you wonder if she’ll be alive in a week. Therapy costs money. Medicine costs money. Food, clothes, electricity cost money. Government assistance is a pittance; poverty drives women and girls into situations where they are forced to rely on people who abuse them to survive. (I’ve been up in more hospitals than I can count.)

In each and every dark pit of desperation, I have never seen a pro-lifer. I ain’t never seen them babysitting, scrubbing floors, bringing over goods, handing mom $50 bucks a month or driving her to the pediatrician. I ain’t never seen them sitting up for hours with an autistic child who screams and rages so his mother can get some sleep while she rests up from working 14-hour days. I don’t see them fixing leaks in rundown houses or playing with a kid while the police prepare to interview her about her sexual abuse. They’re not paying for the funerals of babies and children who died after birth, when they truly do become independent organisms. And the crazy thing is they think they’ve already done their job, because the child was born!

Aphids give birth, girl. It’s no miracle. You want to speak for the weak? Get off your high horse and get your hands dirty helping the poor, the isolated, the ill and mentally ill women and mothers and their children who already breathe the dirty air. You are doing nothing, absolutely nothing, for children. You don’t have a flea’s comprehension of injustice. You are not doing shit for life until you get in there and fight that darkness. Until you understand that abortion is salvation in a world like ours. Does that sound too hard? Do you really think suffering post-birth is more permissible, less worthy of outrage?

“Pro-life” is simply a philosophy in which the only life worth saving is the one that can be saved by punishing a woman.

FLAWLESS COMMENTARY ABOVE. COMPLETELY AGREED. I’d love to see speakfortheweak reply to this, though we all know she won’t.

Can’t not reblog this. -Joe

Day two.

thisgingersnapsback:

This morning was an especially difficult exercise in self-control and anger management. This post will be far shorter than the last one, because I really don’t want to talk about it more than strictly necessary because it is disgusting, but I feel like this nasty behaviour needs to be exposed. 

Before we continue, while I didn’t include a trigger warning, anyone sensitive to miscarriages or anything along those lines may not want to continue reading.

Today I met one of the protesters, Mary. She’s a chaser, she’ll follow women out of their car, she’ll stand by the car door so it’s hard for them to get out. Well, the young woman in question today wasn’t brooking any of Mary’s nonsense, so when Mary pulled her standing-by-the-door shtick, she opened the door roughly against her. And as soon as Mary began talking, she hauled off and smacked her right across the face.

I heard about all of this through hearsay (and also about how the woman’s companion chased Mary around the parking lot) and while there was a tiny voice saying “Yay!” in my head, my heart also sunk—because I’m learning that any action you take against these people, even in the face of cruelty, will be used against you. I’m learning that as an Escort, it’s my job to hopefully try and calm these situations down—not encourage them. …But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t admire the family giving Mary a hard time.

Anyway, the young girl was with her mother and father, and the mother was screaming at all the protesters who nearly created a mob. Another Escort leaned close to me and said, “It’s a dead fetus.”

I was shocked to my core. The family, even the girl herself, had been yelling this to the protesters, that she wasn’t there for an abortion, but it was falling on deaf ears. Instead of listening to the heartache of the young girl and shutting up and letting her get the treatment she deserved, they treated her like a sinner—a murderer.

More concrete, real-life evidence that these antis don’t give a fuck about the people going into the clinics, about people PERIOD, they don’t listen, and they have absolutely no love or heart for anyone but themselves, despite how badly they want you to believe otherwise.

Look at this adorable little chick isn’t it just…oh wait.

Fetus =/= Baby.

That is what we call an unfertilized egg.  What your looking at is what would have nourished the chick, if the chick was in there.  Essentially, that egg is ‘chicken period.’

However, that is a chicken prepared as Balut.  (Or a duck.  The description wouldn’t say.  I think the point stands.)

Therefore, ^Chicken inside egg = human being inside womb.  Fetus = Human being.

The dumb thing is, I don’t even need to go down this route.

I don’t give a shit what you think it is inside a womb. Even if it’s a fully grown fucking adult, if it has to leech off a woman to survive, then she has every right to stop it doing so. 

Okay, so you admit that a fetus is a human being.  Moving on:

if it has to leech off a woman to survive, then she has every right to stop it doing so.

Actually, that is not true.  To be able to claim that, you would need to claim that a fetus’s presence in the uterus is unlawful.  However, because the woman in most cases acted in such a way that would cause the pregnancy, if the fetus’s presence there is unlawful, then the woman is an accessory to the crime through criminal facilitation.

Furthermore, when you say a fetus leeches off the mother, you are insinuating the fetus is a parasite.  This is obviously not true given the fact that the woman provides the fetus with a womb in which to stay.  There is no case of parasitism where the host prepares a place specifically for the parasite.  The claim that the fetus is a parasite is thus severely compromised.

Finally, in no other example of human relations can someone be killed for ‘leeching’ off another.  If you grow tired of taking care of your already born child, you are not allowed to take him out back and shoot him.  You are allowed to ‘remove’ him from your home through adoption, but you are not allowed to shoot him. You cannot claim abortion is like putting a child up for adoption because abortion kills the child.

Why did you just post something about Catholics being pro-abortion when you clearly aren’t? 

Of course I admit it’s of human form, it can only become a human. It’s not going to turn into an alligator at nine months is it? Does that make it the same as a fully developed, born human? Certainly not.

Firstly, sometimes the woman didn’t consent to even having sexual intercourse. Your argument fails to really address why you feel that rape victims, as well as those pregnant by consensual sex should be forced to carry their pregnancy to term. Secondly, consent for sex is not consent for pregnancy. Thirdly, consent for pregnancy can be withdrawn. Circumstances change and so do minds. This is why we call ourselves pro-choice, because this is so wrapped up in choice, consent, and personal ownership of you own body. It is so important to empower women with the knowledge that consent is given on a second by second basis, and can be entirely validly and rightly be withdrawn from a situation where seconds before consent was total. When that consent it withdrawn, whether it be for sex, pregnancy, or anything you care to think of, whatever is no longer being consented to must be stopped. I don’t know if you identify as a feminist, but if you don’t agree with that key tenant of it, you better stop. 

You argue it’s not leeching because the woman voluntarily provides her womb to the child? Don’t really want to state the obvious here, but if she’s seeking an abortion, she doesn’t want to provide her womb (And not just her womb, her entire body is involved in the process of gestation) then it isn’t voluntary. She is not ‘preparing a place’, she’s desperate to have that place back. Just because something can inhabit a part of a woman’s body does not mean it’s welcome.

I said nothing about adoption, so I don’t see the relevance. 

Also you’re wrong, there is no human relation quite like this. This is not taking care of, it is physically offering yourself as a host body, and in no other medical situation does that occur. If you woke up tomorrow with a stranger attatched to your kidneys that you have to offer routine human dialysis for, you would be pretty unimpressed. It’s difficult to compare physical leeching to anything else because there is no like situation in the world. 

When you’re told you have to provide a host body to keep something alive that you don’t want to, and still go through with it, then we’ll talk.

Oh wait…

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM.

Lets stop pretending people only have sex for procreation. I know anti-choicers do not understand that you can have sex and not want kids but this is just some slut shaming bullshit. Also, who is to say nuns do not want children? Women become nuns for spiritual reasons not because they don’t want kids.

Why are pro-life people not drinking coffee to protest abortion, that makes literally no sense.

It makes perfect sense, though. Pro-Life people seem to think that a fetus is more important than an individual, and that for that belief, that they are more important than people who believe otherwise. So these people think that their heroic Moccachino sacrifice will show all the terrible uterus-bearers who aren’t wandering around with a full womb at every given moment that it’s better to have the freedom to be forced to carry a child than the freedom to choose whether you carry the child.

Trigger warning: abuse and rape descriptions.
A few weeks ago my mom stapled pages of a story in one of her women’s magazines together and handed it to me. She gave it to me pretty much with the tag lines “for your feminist blog” and “something new to consider.” Indeed it was; she knows me well.
The story is titled “I was forced to be pregnant.” With a title like that, reading it was actually not on the top of my to read list. I thought it was about women not exercising their right to choice. I was very, very wrong on that one.
Have you ever heard of Reproductive coercion? It is a term that was quite recently coined by the advocates against domestic violence to describe a certain type of abuse some women face. It occurs when a man pressures their partner to have kids and/or impregnates them against their will. Reproductive coercion comes in three different types:1. Emotional pressure that turns into verbal and physical abuse.2. Sabotaging birth control3. Marital rapeOver 75% of women 19-49 who reported once experiencing domestic violence also endured some type of reproductive control by men. It’s all about control and domination over a woman’s body.
The first story in the magazine is about a woman who got married around 36 years of age. After a few months of dating her boyfriend talked excitedly about having children. After he proposed he began calling her “The Babymaker.” She then confided with him that one of her fallopian tubes was blocked. He in return insisted she see a fertility doctor. She recounts, “I had finally met a great guy who was eager to start a family with me. What woman wouldn’t fall for that?” Soon after her honeymoon he persisted on in an obsessive manner, but his efforts had to be temporarily halted as she had to get emergency back surgery. Alas, 6 months into recovery he was back to pressuring her again. She was in much pain at the time due to her back, but she agreed to In Vitro Fertilization. She then became pregnant, but soon miscarried. In response, her husband grabbed her by the neck, choking her. He apologized, blaming his outburst on his grief and had her sign up for another round of IVF. And then a third round. She tried to put him off with the excuse that she needed to weigh more before she could take treatments, her husband forced her to get on the scale often and filled the fridge with fattening foods. “It hurt that all I was good for was getting pregnant.” She recounts. At the end, he screamed at her, threatening to replace her with a maid if she couldn’t get pregnant and she told him she no longer wanted to have his child. He destroyed bedroom furniture, pushed her down the stairs and threatened her with a gun. She fled to a domestic violence shelter.
The second story was about a woman who faced marital rape. This woman was 40, had a then boyfriend and two children from a previous marriage. After telling her boyfriend she did not want any more children, her boyfriend refused to wear a condom and began to rape her.  She then became pregnant with her third child. Birth control was never an option for her because she couldn’t hide pills anywhere for he went through all of her belongings. Three months after giving birth, he raped her again, impregnating her with twins. She lost the twins in a physical fight with him, but soon became pregnant again. During her recovery she begged her obstetrician to remove her ovaries and devise a lie to tell him; that she had cancer. After a decade of sexual abuse and violence she was able to get a job that kept her out of the house and often times traveling.
One in four callers to the National Domestic Abuse hotline said that their partners had tried to force them to become pregnant. Why? As one woman stated, “Its like he wants to own me from the inside out.”  Having a baby is the perfect tie that binds. These type of abusers want to create a circumstance in which their partner is dependent on him.
WHAT’S THAT HAVE TO DO WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD?
Many voters never consider how defunding these clinics could hurt victims of domestic violence who turn to them for counseling as well as pregnancy prevention. Abused women will turn to health care providers long before they will turn to domestic abuse hotlines and organizations. Many women in abusive relationships rely on life saving, affordable care programs such as Title X. It is critical that such places are open and operation when women and children need them so desperately.

I am proud to be pro Life, no matter how people may judge me, thik wrong of me, think I am stupid for my opinion, I will not pretend or hide it :)
*remember, WHAT IF IT WAS YOU?and you were to small to speak for yourself? A baby, a life, is the most precious gift the world can receive :) *

You would never even know. You wouldn’t feel any pain or think. You just wouldn’t be. 
We think we are so important that we can’t imagine a world without ourselves. It’s selfish to think that no matter what our child bearing parent may have wanted, we should exist. If they had no money, no job and we were not wanted, that we still HAVE to exist. 
What if they couldn’t even afford to feed themselves, let alone a child. Let alone get prenatal care. Let alone ever be able to afford to pay for the pregnancy. What if they wanted to have a career and give their child a comfortable life? 
I’ve heard so many stories about people who get pregnant, and they do want children, but they don’t want them or can’t have them at that moment. That’s not the life they want to give either themselves or the child. 
There’s infinite reasons why you could not exist today. If your parents had sex a different day, you could have never been. 
I think it’s better that every child is wanted and loved. That people make the choice to become a parent. How special would it feel to know your parents were FORCED to have you. It was against the law not to have you. Children are not punishment for doing something ‘bad’ and they should stay something beautiful and wonderful and we should not value our own life, as a fetus, as something that did not think or feel, over our parents. 

I’m Pro-Life.

I’m Pro-Life because I believe that a walking, talking, living, breathing woman should not die or go through serious risk of infection, death, sterilisation, or other danger because of a partially-formed potential person.
I’m Pro-Life because I believe that every life is important, and it’s the responsibility of adults to make the best decisions about when bringing a new life into the world is appropriate - not just whenever a sperm hits the target.
I’m Pro-Life because I believe that we shouldn’t be shooting, bombing, or setting fire to medical practices. That doctors provided these procedures should not be villified, slandered, attacked (metaphorically or physically.) That federal funds should make healthcare a priority and support reproductive and sexual health for EVERYONE.
So if I’m Pro-Life, what does that make you, Anti-Legal-Abortion-ers?

What if they couldn’t even afford to feed themselves, let alone a child. Let alone get prenatal care. Let alone ever be able to afford to pay for the pregnancy. What if they wanted to have a career and give their child a comfortable life? 

I’ve heard so many stories about people who get pregnant, and they do want children, but they don’t want them or can’t have them at that moment. That’s not the life they want to give either themselves or the child. 

There’s infinite reasons why you could not exist today. If your parents had sex a different day, you could have never been. 

I think it’s better that every child is wanted and loved. That people make the choice to become a parent. How special would it feel to know your parents were FORCED to have you. It was against the law not to have you. Children are not punishment for doing something ‘bad’ and they should stay something beautiful and wonderful and we should not value our own life, as a fetus, as something that did not think or feel, over our parents. 

I’m Pro-Life.

I’m Pro-Life because I believe that a walking, talking, living, breathing woman should not die or go through serious risk of infection, death, sterilisation, or other danger because of a partially-formed potential person.

I’m Pro-Life because I believe that every life is important, and it’s the responsibility of adults to make the best decisions about when bringing a new life into the world is appropriate - not just whenever a sperm hits the target.

I’m Pro-Life because I believe that we shouldn’t be shooting, bombing, or setting fire to medical practices. That doctors provided these procedures should not be villified, slandered, attacked (metaphorically or physically.) That federal funds should make healthcare a priority and support reproductive and sexual health for EVERYONE.

So if I’m Pro-Life, what does that make you, Anti-Legal-Abortion-ers?
