If anyone has been personally harassed, or has seen others being harassed, outside of a clinic, please share your story here or through an ask.
Violence against abortion providers and women’s clinics is real, but these incidences are often downplayed in the media.
I did not just contradict myself. If there is something or someone inside of my body, I have every right to remove it or them because I have the right to MY body.
Nearly everything we do in this age “challenges nature.” Medication, vaccinations, surgery, all of that isn’t natural. The computer or device you used to send me this message definitely isn’t natural. I guess you’re the one contradicting yourself, not me.
If you don’t want ‘that thing’ inside your body, don’t do the act that puts it there!
So people who never want to have children should remain abstinent for their entire lives, considering there isn’t any 100% effective contraception so if they did get pregnant it’s always their fault.
And people never, ever, get raped because that’s just all made up, right? They chose to have sex! Always!
What a foetus is:
- a human being
- a foetus
What a foetus isn’t:
- a tumour
- a parasite
- just a clump of cells
- a punishment
Adding on to what a fetus isn’t:
Study cited above here. Legal choice does not mean real choice.
Definitely. Thank you for sharing. I’m so sorry you had that happen to you and I hope things are better now.
I hate the way they preach equal rights for all human beings and respect the right to life and think babies are better off in loving adoptive homes instead of dead and the way they help mothers not make the worst decision of their life that they may live to regret every day.
GOD don’t you just hate that?
“Equal rights for all human beings.” except for pregnant people
“Loving adopting homes.” except most of them will end up in foster care and other types of home rather than “loving homes” because there aren’t that many loving people out there who are actually willing to adopt a child. If that child is a minority or has any type of illness or disability, the likelihood of them getting adopted is even smaller.
“worst decision of their life” for some people, that is true. For very many others, that is completely false. And it is their decision to make regardless, not yours.
People in the anti-abortion movement love to bring up partial birth abortions. You will always be able to find a horror story description on how abortions are performed like this and happen quite frequently. This procedure has such misinformation surrounding it that it’s disturbing. Let’s find out the truth.
Partial Birth Abortion is actually a medically inaccurate term. It was created purely for propaganda purposes. The procedure is actually named “Intact Dilation & Extraction” or IDX. While people like to portray it as routine in regards to abortion, it actually has an extremely low rate of use. In the last available statistic, it was only used in 0.17% of abortions. Not to mention, the procedure was pretty much done on wanted pregnancies for two reasons. 1) It was only used in later term abortions, which are almost exclusively done in “difficult” circumstances. 2) It gave the family a body to mourn.
In the United States, the procedure was made illegal in 2003. What people didn’t know is that it didn’t really do anything except punish pregnant people. It’s a safer procedure than the alternative (D & E) at this point, the alternative leaves more room for complications, including death. The alternative also does not allow for a body to mourn. Lastly, the alternative is also considerably more… Unnerving, so I’m not sure why people against abortion thought that was a good idea.
TL;DR - IDX is not a bad thing. It’s a very rarely used procedure. During the time period it is used, pregnancies are usually wanted and experiencing something gone seriously wrong.
