So let me get this straight.
We can allow people to get dogs and choose whether or not to spay or neuter them.
Then if an unspayed female dog becomes pregnant and the owner decides they don’t want to pay the expenses to birth the puppies and take care of them, that owner can take the dog to the vet and have the puppies aborted.
If we’re making an argument for the “voiceless,” then why isn’t the pro-life crowd extending their outrage to animals? After all, if the owner didn’t want the dog to get pregnant, why didn’t they spay her? Isn’t that irresponsible, so therefore the owner should pay the consequences? Y’know, because the dogs and puppies don’t have a say and it’s wrong to exert control over the lives of those who cannot speak…?
It’s almost as if lifers are self-important reactionaries obsessed with the idea that all people NEED to be born. And for what? What happens after? Where do these lifers go once all these babies are born?
Sorry, guys. But people don’t NEED to be born. Not every single fetus that was ever conceived needs to be born. I see no actual, reasonable argument that can express why every time a woman conceives, she needs to give birth. I mean, if your only reason for the “sanctity” of life equates to humanness, then maybe there’s some wars you should be trying to end or something. And maybe your rationale is painfully stupid and self-absorbed.
I feel like if I’m going to fight for things that are right to me, I should make myself available. So for any followers or people who visit my blog, please feel free to use my ask box for questions on the following topics:

People like Kermit Gosnell are the reason abortion was made legal in the first place.
The more you limit abortion, the more people like him will surface.
Let that swirl around in your mouth a little bit.
*Movie trailer voice*
Pro-Life Movement Studios presents, from the political “masterminds” of the conservative side: “Cis Men Talking About Abortion: A Horror Story,” a Paul Ryan film. Produced by award-winning douche Todd Akin and starring angry dudes on Tumblr.
Critics call it the most condescending, arrogant, misinformed movie of the century.
“Finally, a film that successfully blends terror with laugh-out-loud funny!”—Roger Ebert
Don’t miss “Cis Men Talking About Abortion: A Horror Story.” Coming soon to a theater near you.
Rated R. Some theater patrons forcefully admitted without consent.
I wonder if God likes it when the first resort of religious lifers is to be condescending and call women “girl,” “sweetie,” “honey,” etc. Because love and respect, y’know?
I wonder if God likes it when people die from botched abortions because the church lied to people to fix a population issue.
I wonder if God thinks it’s righteous to force others into a situation they were trying to avoid because of a misplaced belief in him.
I wonder if God thinks pregnancy is something people should just “suck up and deal with.”
Guys. I Googled “pro-life tattoos.” Let me start off by saying these are some of the ugliest fucking tattoos I’ve ever seen in my life. And I’m glad they are because if they were gorgeous, I’d be so upset that an artist’s talents went to waste creating it.
But now you must all suffer as I have suffered, so here we go:
This one isn’t so bad, and it could represent her own child or a special child in her life. Not like it’s very openly slapping people in the face with her opinion. It’s not a very aesthetically-pleasing tattoo, however.
Where, oh, where do I begin with THIS little gem? First of all, I need someone to explain to me what the heck is going in with the mixing of fonts here. Second, the artist really needs to work on his or her block letters because that r looks like an h that got botched halfway through the session. But I’m ignoring my FAVORITE part of this whole work of art, the heartbeat, a tired and true pro-life argument that suggests a beating heart is the defining factor of life. We know better, though, and understand that the heart is an independently functioning organ that generates its own electrical impulses, thus creating its own beat. No other organ is required for the heart to function, making it a pretty useless indicator of life—unlike the brain, which isn’t sufficiently developed at the time abortion is legal unless the abortion is late-term, in which case the mother was in danger.
Then there’s this x-ray thing, which is the most pleasing of all, but I’m unsure about the meaning behind it. It came up on my search, but there’s no other real indication that it’s “pro-life” and not an attempt at being edgy or something. So. This is fun to look at, but if it is pro-life, this does a great job of illustrating how people think that once egg and sperm meet, the two magically transform into this cherub-like, fully-formed baby that hangs out in the womb, causing NO problems to the mother, for nine months until it’s born so omg, how could you kill it, it’s not cells, it’s human and I’m reminding you this because I think women are so stupid they believe they are gestating a pizza inside their human bodies, lol.
THIS is one of the biggest wtfs I’ve ever seen. Clearly he (it was a he. The artist said so) thinks abortion is legal for no reason and fails to understand that women were actually killing themselves in the search for an abortion, which the U.S. government decided was inherently more troubling than aborting cells. I don’t know how this is supposed to make us respect life and feel sorry for the “baby.” When I look at this, I see how horrible it is to force someone to be pregnant—then hideously shame them via permanent body art.
And might I add, WTF is going on with her finger on the trigger of that gun? It’s longer than her whole hand.
Now BEHOLD! Tumblr pro-choicers! The greatest masterpiece of them all! This…this…THING. I have literally NO clue what’s going on here. Between the alien-esque fetus blob, the word “witness” that is clearly some allusion to the Bible, and the coat hangers (traditionally used by the pro-CHOICE movement because hangers aren’t goddamn surgical tools and if we have to make abortion legal to keep people from putting them inside themselves, I’m all for it. A fetus IS NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN A WOMAN) as if to say that women who subjected to coat hanger abortions deserved it or are murderers, I can’t find time to form many coherent thoughts on this level of ineptitude.
Honestly, it looks like a raver barged into a presidential debate and threw up. The color scheme is wacky, the misuse of symbols and the cluttering of too many incoherent, unfounded opinions is just too much. I can’t even tell what it’s trying to represent other than “I’m pro-life and NEED everyone to be aware THE SECOND THEY MEET ME.”
I guess that wasn’t so bad, but now I’m really torn between making lifers have a waiting period and submitting to unnecessary medical testing before being allowed to get a damn pro-life tattoo and finding someone willing to do them for free (in visible places only) so people know who to stay the hell away from.
THINK, people. Abortion doesn’t exist because everyone in the world is a lazy a-hole except you. Stop trying to force everyone to be like you because honestly, if your idea of morality and an acceptable way to live involves reproductive slavery and trying to coerce people into making the choices YOU would make, I have news for you: You are a disgusting human being.
Me: Actually, abortion being viewed as “killing children” began at a time where the church’s prohibitive views on sex caused a severe decline in population. It wasn’t until then that the church responded by decreeing that married couples could—almost should—indeed be allowed to have sex (married couples who abstained were viewed as the purest of all relationships) and women were not allowed to get abortions. None of the stigma surrounding abortion existed until then; it was viewed as acceptable. Due to unfavorable conditions, the church stepped in.
Anti-choicer: Well, people viewed slavery as acceptable until someone stepped in!
The federal government needs to start intervening on these states passing blatantly screwed up abortion laws (“heartbeat bill”? No abortion after 12 weeks? C’MON!) and stop focusing on non-issues like terrorizing medical marijuana clinics in states where it’s LEGAL.
Your government: Not giving a fuck about health since forever.
Gettin’ reeeeaaalll tired of pro-lifers telling me what people who got abortions think/feel or what abortion is “really” like or what motives behind abortion are like I’m blindly advocating something I know nothing about.
My best friend in this entire planet, a woman who has been there with me through the darkest of times, a person I grow closer to each day, someone I would risk my life to protect, someone I would stay with to the ends of the earth, someone who loves me genuinely, makes me laugh when I want to die, who I will be friends with long after death, had an abortion. Her abortion was a very personal, real experience to me as well because we are that close. I refuse to give details because its not my place, but I will tell you a thing or two about what abortion is really, factually like.
So don’t step to ME about abortion like you know shit. You WILL get torn apart.
