“Most pro-lifers are men and will never have a uterus!”
Well, that’s funny…because 64% of the people who like Created Equal’s Facebook page are women.
No, you are quoting wrong, and the quote that you are referring to is usually in reference to the fact that most of the people writing legislation on abortion and seeking to limit the choices pregnant people are allowed to make about their bodies are men, not about who likes your shitty little Facebook page.
Hey pro-lifers abusing the Troy Davis situation to serve your anti-choice agenda
Shut the fuck up. Have you no basic decency or respect?
That awkward moment you go through the pro-life tag and it’s all about Troy Davis and saving the innocent babies because all life is sacred and only God can judge.
Is there nothing that these people will not ride all the way back to the abortion station? They do it with the Holocaust, they did it with 9/11, and now they’re doing it on the back of this man’s death. Awesome.
Stay classy, pro-lifers. ;D
What these people seem to be forgetting is that once you grant a person rights, their rights cannot infringe upon anyone else’s rights, so unless Mississippi also plans on taking rights AWAY from pregnant people and implementing some kind of forced birth policy, pregnant people’s rights still protect their own body. How are these great public officials, pastors, and patriots planning on getting around that one?
Wow, yet another argument that could be made for abortion rights, from none other than the republicans.
It actually made me kind of angry to read that and see who said it and that they don’t mean it at all.
How are all these anti-choice people honestly rambling on about freedom of choice tonight? This is just ridiculous.
Michele Bachmann (on Perry’s mandated HPV vaccinations)
LOL Michele Bachmann talkin about choice.
100% behind your choice to get cervical cancer
0% behind your choice to get an abortion, even if you’re dying
Remember all those people and their “pro-death” lines? THIS is pro-death.
Yeah, so this group posted a note that opens with the argument that “only” ~1% of abortions are for cases of rape, implying “fuck those bitches, since there aren’t that many of them why should they have choices?”
The remainder is the same anti-choice drivel about how abortion hurts women and that somehow being forced to carry one’s rapist’s fetus will make being raped all better!
The best part? “Carrying a baby to term after becoming pregnant by rape can be an empowering experience for a woman. By doing so, she proves herself to be stronger than the rapist, overcoming the odds. If the woman truly feels that she couldn’t love the child produced from rape, there are an innumerable amount of families waiting to adopt a newborn baby, who perhaps cannot conceive children of their own.”
Yeah. You can overcome having your body used against your will during sexual assault by having your body used against your will for nine whole months after the fact! And if you for some reason don’t want to raise the spawn of the person who raped you, you can just be an incubator for a wealthy white family waiting to buy the product of your suffering! Yay!
And the usual disclaimer: abortion is a choice. If you were the victim of sexual assault and became pregnant and chose parenting or adoption, that’s your choice. This is just horrifically offensive to all people who have been sexually assaulted, especially those who chose abortion after the fact.
So yeah, get on reporting this shit for hate speech against a gender/ orientation.
(Thanks, katbeee for submitting the link to this monstrosity!)
What I find quite remarkable about the “pro-life” movement is that when it comes to rape pregnancies, they constantly push “Oh, well rape pregnancies account for only 1% of abortions, a very small minority and is by no means enough for an exception and/or to keep it legal!” So because the percentage of abortions that take place due to rape is so small, it shouldn’t matter in the bigger picture, yet the .17% of abortions that are D&E should be a reason enough argument for illegalization? But its only .17%.
Did you know that abortion is legal through ALL 9 MONTHS?
That means that the DAY OF BIRTH you can have an abortion.
Just in case you change your mind and decide you don’t want a baby anymore.
I just needed this here.
