“A woman who sets her rights, the supposed right to privacy or right over her own body, above the life of another human being is saying that a woman’s rights are superior to human rights. She has put herself above the human race, she has made herself the executor over life and death. Is that a woman’s right?”
—Janet Smith (via wewillnotbeputtoshame)
It’s every person’s right to use and treat their body as they see fit, and their body alone. No one has the right to control another person’s body, and by being pro-life, you’re saying you think a fetus has the right to control another person’s body, and that’s fucked up.
To all the people who claim praying in front of abortion clinics is passive-aggressive shaming.
We are trying to bring a light of hope into a very dark thing (which is the murder of abortion). We are NOT trying to shame anyone passive aggressively.
We are also trying to save the life of a human being which is about to be murdered, which quite frankly, IS our concern.
Ps, to anyone who thinks abortions are only 3% of what Planned Parenthood does, check out Abby Johnson (ex planned-parenthood employee) who has a published book about all of PP’s lies, including that only 3% of their services are abortions, because it is a MUCH higher number.
If it’s not about intimidation or shame then why are clinic escorts needed? Why are people walking into clinics yelled at? What the fuck do you need signs for? People going into clinics themselves have said that protestors such as yourself make them extremely uncomfortable. This is not treating them with respect or helping them through what might be a very difficult time and decision for them. You are being an asshole.
Go ahead and be concerned for that fetus all you want, your concern for that fetus doesn’t override that pregnant person’s right to their body. Weird, right?
Also, I don’t care what percentage of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortion services. What I do care about is people who want or need abortions being able to get those abortions. The numbers are irrelevant.
Great analogy my Pastor had on Evolution today:
“Have any of you played with a firecracker? I’m assuming yes, or you know the function of it. When you shoot off a firecracker it explodes into nothing. I have never seen a firecracker explode and a can of tuna appear. That is what evolution says, that the Earth was made from an explosion.” - Pastor Ed Taylor
I think your Pastor should look up what evolution is before commenting on it. Where does evolution ever speak about the origin of the earth at all!?
Worst. Analogy. Ever.
Oh my god. I really am laughing right now. So hard. Thank you, Pastor Ed, that was fucking hilarious. Someone get this dude on a comedy tour. Seriously. A fucking can of tuna…
