I gotta laugh at lifers who call me heartless for not feeling anything about those “choose life” videos where the chick is all crying because she’s ~so happy~ she had a baby. Know why I don’t give a fuck? Because it’s not my life. I am not that woman. What she wants to do with her life has NOTHING to do with me. Just like someone’s abortion has nothing to do with you and your shitty video. Get it?
Can we PLEASE stop idealizing and overly-romanticizing having a baby? Babies and reproduction are more complicated than little blessings from heaven. Taking care of a baby isn’t only joy and fantasy and love. That shit is the real deal. It requires money, time, patience, commitment — some things some people just aren’t in the place to give to someone else. You are alive right now, so you have a great perception of life. And if you happen to be someone who is trying for a baby, you’re probably in a good place to have one, so your views on living are better than most people. I literally do not understand folks who think ~life~ is the only requisite for a baby to be born. “At least it would have a life” is so bogus. Babies aren’t pets. They are humans with feelings and needs. When you can’t feed or be there for your toddler, what are you going to say? “At least you’re alive lol.” Yeah, no. Doesn’t work that way.
Sorry not sorry, but if lifers abuse their new lack of buffer zone between themselves and clinics, I hope they get knocked the fuck out.
It scares the living shit out of me that there are people out there who can empathize with a fetus but not a pregnant person.
ALL pro-life protest is violent protest. It is literally impossible for it to be anything but. Thank you goodbye.
You know, I just gotta say, a big reason why I’m so pro-choice is the fact that I think we need to be focusing more on people who actually exist in this world. I literally do not care what a woman* wants to do with a fetus as long as they’re safe about it, whether that’s receiving adequate pre-natal care or getting an abortion or being treated justly by the adoption system. I do not care what happens to a fetus because a fetus is not something that holds any significance to anyone else except the person carrying it. A fetus isn’t going to feed the poor, it isn’t going to save people from sexual slavery, it isn’t going to straighten out the economy, it isn’t going to create jobs. Meanwhile, a child going hungry and attending a school that’s severely underfunded is losing opportunities by the second — including opportunities to grow up to make a difference in this world — and they are suffering. How am I supposed to give a damn about a fetus some person may or may not be carrying when other people who exist outside a womb need money to pay the rent and feed themselves? We need to start worrying about the people we co-exist with, not distracting bullshit like “potential life.”
To anyone on this site considering abortion: DO NOT LISTEN TO PRO-LIFERS ON THIS SITE. DO NOT LISTEN TO LIFERS ANYWHERE.
It is YOUR choice. And ultimately, even if you do speak to a pro-choice person about it, your best bet is always to seek professional medical advice. Do not make decisions based on what ANY stranger on the Internet tells you to do. If someone posits their response to you as anything other than “it’s your choice,” stop speaking to them and run the other way.
But please for the love of any higher power that may happen to exist, the only advice you should be listening to is your own and a doctor’s. If you are considering abortion, seek professional care. Do not be manipulated. Stay safe and know that you are not a bad person. I may not be qualified to help you much, but you are welcome to come to me for comfort. I love you. Be as strong as you can.
When will lifers learn that abortion largely isn’t because of what goes on in the womb or individual homes? It’s the social climate and culture we live in. Abortion isn’t a solution because “Mwahahaha! We want to “kill babies!” Because I mean, get real. That’s an action without an ends. What would be the purpose of that? What is the long term societal goal to simply getting abortions? There isn’t any.
Now, if we would fix the system to give our children a fighting chance, then maybe there would be fewer unintended pregnancies, and in the event of accidental pregnancies, maybe more people would be inclined to carry to term if they believed they could adequately care for a child with the resources in place. Just a thought.
So yeah, the government and our culture are racist, classist, sexist, but their goal isn’t to propagate abortion. It’s to preserve the system that has benefitted them so much. Now stop using poor PoC as faces for your out-of-touch propaganda. Stop using them as props and scapegoats. Just stop completely, actually.
So you’re telling me that even if I catch a pregnancy early (because let’s stop pretending abortions happen super late in every scenario because that’s patently untrue, and if it does happen, it’s for medical reasons), early enough that it is literally a pool of dividing cells that look like this:
I can’t have an abortion because something that doesn’t even have fucking eyes yet has just as much value as ME??? Me who contributes to the economy, the marketplace of ideas and the lives of other born people is not in a position to truncate the growth of something that not only does NONE of those things but is also using me to grow because its value is EQUIVALENT to mine?? Tell me I’m dreaming.
I got bored. Please just stop now. I’m not going to believe that you’re serious no matter what you say. Reblogging you some more and using my wit and sass on you (and honestly, I commend your dedication to this troll. But there’s limits, y’know?) to no end I can justify as productive or meaningful is just not something I picture myself doing tonight or ever. It was fun and everything, but get some sleep. It’s 1 a.m. on this side of the States, and I’d really just like to get into my nightly mindless-reblogging-of-pretty-pictures and reading routine before I hit the hay. Playing Internet troll chicken is not something I find relaxing before I sleep. You should consider doing the same and walking away for the night.
Now on the .1 percent chance you’re not a troll and you’ve been totally serious the whole time and you are legitimately baffled that I doubt your current existence and I am not comprehending your flawless arguments: I feel so sorry for you.
