Pro-Choice =/= Anti-Life by OurHandOfSorrow Pro-Choice =/= Anti-Life by OurHandOfSorrow
"I'm Pro-Choice, NOT 'Anti-Life'"

Response to:

As you all know: I get into the abortion debate quite a lot, and as most of you might have guessed, I'm profoundly Pro-Choice. And the amount of fucking times I've been called "Anti-Life", "Anti-Baby", "Anti-Family" and the biggest one: "Pro-Abortion" is un-fucking-believable.

"You are anti-life! You want to kill innocent unborn babies!"

Listen, I know that a zygote is alive. It's alive exactly how every single cell in existence is. If killing a non-viable collection of tissue and cells is murder, I do hope you mourn the lives of all the Bacteria/Cells/Viruses/Plants/Animals/Anything that is alive. Also: the term "unborn baby" is an oxymoron. Also, a foetus is not innocent, it lacks the ability to be innocent or guilty.

"You are anti-baby! An unborn baby didn't ask to be there and you MURDERED it!!!"

Again: I'm not anti-baby for supporting a woman's right to choose. If I'm anti-baby, you're anti-woman. Also, it doesn't matter how the foetus got there, it can't use my body without my ongoing consent. And as I have established MANY times before: Consent to sex is NOT consent to pregnancy.

"You're anti-family because you want to kill every unborn baby before it could even become part of a family!"

....LOLWHUT? I do not want to kill every foetus there is in existence, that would be stupid. Also, how the hell is letting a woman decide when she wants to (if she ever does) start her own family anti-family? If anything: Forcing her to give birth to a child she didn't ever want that would grow up to be un-loved by it's own mother is hardly pro-family, is it?

"You support abortion, therefore you are pro-abortion!"

I support abortion as a possible CHOICE for a pregnant woman, not for every single pregnancy there is out there. If I were pro-abortion, I'd be out there making sure that every single pregnancy is terminated. Hardly anyone is pro-abortion. Besides: If I'm pro-abortion for being pro-choice, you are pro-slavery, by wanting to force every single pregnant woman who doesn't want to be to gestate.

"Abortion is murder!"

The legal definition of murder disagrees with you.


mur·der/ˈmərdər/
Noun:
The unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.
Verb:
Kill (someone) unlawfully and with premeditation.


Abortion does not fit into either category because:

1. Abortion is 100% lawful in most countries in the world.
2. A zygote is not a being.
3. No woman plans to get pregnant just to have an abortion.

"I've seen you use the term anti-choice before!"

I only use the term anti-choice to those who bloody well deserve it. There are very few people who I would consider to be "pro-life", and none of those people want abortion illegal. By wanting abortion to be illegal, you are denying a woman to make the best CHOICE for herself regarding her pregnancy and her life. And believe it or not: By wanting to deny people choices, does indeed make you anti-choice.

Besides: Anyone who wishes to see abortion illegal with no expectations are pro-life, considering they'd rather see both woman and foetus die in extreme cases/illegal abortion.

If there's anything I've missed out, feel free to tell me.

Why are you using zygotes in your examples? Most abortions happen eight weeks onward, after a fetus has it's own heart beat and nerve cells that give it the sense of touch. If you jab a fetus at eight weeks with a needle, it pulls away. Can you picture what it does during an abortion?

To be honest, I completely agree. Plus most of the people I've heard about who are anti-abortion or whatever are mainly men (that is not in any offense to anybody) so therefore they think they can make the woman's choice for her. Excuse you sirs???? You do not have a uterus, you do not have the ability to experience pregnancy and childbirth, you never have to, so who are you to say that you decide on whether or not a woman can choose to abort an unwanted baby (especially because of rape and incest). It's not your body, it's not your baby, so it shouldn't be your problem. You shouldn't be controlling how women view their bodies and themselves. Women have the right to do what they like to their body, they have the right to an abortion if they don't want a baby.

Freedom out.

"No woman plans to get pregnant just to have an abortion"

I heard that some feminists (if they even are) abort their child just for being male and say that women should have girls as their firstborn because "it's easier".

a) thats a fabricated load of shit.
b) if that were happening, which i doubt it is, then those people would not be actual feminists, because that goes against the basics of feminism- women and men are equal.

lmaooo. first world feminism still believes that men and women are equal. you have your entire conception of feminism confused. let me give you a hint: theres a difference between radical feminism and feminism. radicals are not actually feminists, just like how isis isnt actually muslim, or the kkk isnt actually christian.

???no it wasnt??? you literally called the people who have abortions bc the babys a male feminists?? thats not your point, kid. you were trying to lump extremists into regular feminism, which is what i was telling you not to do. i recognize that you put "if they even are", but you still lumped them by calling them feminists in the first place so... also, i dont know why you brought up westboro, but yea, theyre not really christians.

Ok THAT I will say is just wrong. It isn't the whole gender discrimination. You usually don't find out the gender till 16-20 weeks. =2= Honestly thats a tad too late to abort.

Wouldn't it be wrong in both ways though? What if it turns out to be healthy, but you still abort it anyways because "guys suck and should go to hell"?

I want to be an activist for disorders and disablities alike someday, with the exception of the child being in a permanently vegetative state. Even then, I hope the termination is done effectively and humanely.

But most of all, I hope they wanted that child.

Honestly I don't really care the reason. Yeah I will judge them because I think gender abortion is stupid. I care more about the trimester and if the fetus felt pain when aborted. (Even in cases of rape, after x amount of time its a case of you snooze you loose). ^^; I'm just more or less against late term abortions because the fetus develops a nervous system that can feel pain.

Why can't they both be more like my other friend? He says that he opposes abortion, but in the end it should be the mother's decision, because it is not his place to make decisions for people and tell them what they can/can't or should/shouldn't do.

You're not going to care about the child. You don't give two shits about their life after they're born. Their parents aren't going to care about them because they never wanted them in the first place.

I agree 100 percent.
Unplanned pregnancy is serious.
and if a woman doesn't want/can't to give up her time and money to take care of it, she as every right to decide what to do with it.
after all, untill it's born, it' a part of her.
