Unfortunately, you’re not the only one, although I wish you were. That being said, your opinion is shitty…

A fetus is going to become a child, if you kill it, you kill the child it will become. As for people having unsafe abortions, that’s their choice. If they want to go threaten their lives, let them go ahead and do so. I’m just saying that there are steps you can take to prevent becoming pregnant if you don’t want a child, and if you do become pregnant, there’s always the adoption or foster program.

A fetus is going to “become a child” in the future, once born. You know who is already a person with thoughts, feelings and needs? The pregnant person. You ignoring those needs and saying “well that’s their choice” to the possibility of an unsafe abortion shows just how little you give a fuck about the pregnant person. Such compassion.

Again, you ignored the fact that over half of those experiencing an unwanted pregnancy WERE USING PROTECTION.
Also, adoption is an alternative to parenthood, not pregnancy. This may be hard for you, but I sincerely suggest you try to comprehend the reasons people choose abortion. I also suggest you mind your own business and stop thinking you have the right to comment on someone else’s reproductive health choices.

I actually have this thing called freedom of speech, I can comment on whatever I want.
And no, you’re right, I don’t have compassion for people who use unsafe abortions.
If someone went somewhere and got a tattoo under 18, in some sketchy place where you don’t know if they know what their doing, and that person was infected by the ink, would I have compassion for them?
No, because it was their choice to go and get the tattoo.
It’s the same sort of concept.
It’s just, a fetus could become someone and your taking those chances away from them before they’re even fully formed.

Yes, freedom of speech is a wonderful thing. It stops the government from persecuting you for what you say. It doesn’t, however, stop others from calling you out on your bullshit.

Your comparison to tattooing is absolutely nonsensical, by the way. (Also I’m laughing because you’re a 14 year old trying to talk about unsafe tattooing to a tattoo artist.) A tattoo is not the same as an abortion. People don’t seek out tattoos out of desperation. They don’t need a tattoo to end a pregnancy they don’t want or cannot handle. (By the way, the majority of the responsibility lies on the tattoo artist to be professional and sterile. If a 16 year old comes into my shop looking for a tattoo, it is my responsibility to tell them that I cannot do it.) For someone who is apparently so pro-life, you have little to no regard for the lives of pregnant people.

A fetus has potential. Potential to cure cancer, or potential to be a serial killer. I’m much more concerned with the actual, as in not potential lives of the pregnant people who need abortion services.

Unfortunately, you’re not the only one, although I wish you were. That being said, your opinion is shitty and flat out wrong.

Why? Well, it shows that you’re not…

I think that, if you don’t want a baby, wear a condom, and if you don’t, you know what the consequences could be, don’t kill the child because of your own actions.
If you’re raped, you’re suddenly thrust into this situation you didn’t expect, and it’s not really fair to you or the child.

I’m going to share something with you: over half of the people who experience an unwanted pregnancy, and choose abortion were using some type of protection. Regardless of that, you don’t get to decide what is right and what is wrong for other people. 

Abortion is not “killing a child,” and when you say “you know the consequences” it becomes clear that you are treating that pregnancy, and ultimately that child, as a punishment. Furthermore, a fetus is not a child - if you’re going to be discussing abortion, then use the proper terminology, please. 

I also love the fact that you completely ignored what happens when you limit abortion access. Does the fact that pregnant people will experience unsafe abortions, resulting in injury or possible death not bother you?

Why? Well, it shows that you’re not interested in ‘saving the babies!” You’re only interested in punishing pregnant people for engaging in consensual sex. Furthermore, why are pregnancies conceived in rape the only ones you’re not interested in protecting? Why are those fetuses different? Fun fact: they’re not! If you’re going to carry on with this shitty anti-choice way of thinking, at least be consistent.

Remember: limiting abortion access will not result in less abortions. It will only result in more unsafe abortions. Stop thinking that just because you don’t like why people get abortions, that they shouldn’t be available. It’s garbage.

ALL HAIL THE TAKEI

Anonymous said: I was hanging out with my sister and one of our friends we've known for most of our life, and he asked my sister what she would do if she got pregnant and she's like 'get an abortion obviously' and he starts trying to convince her that she's should go through with the pregnancy and then just give the baby to him. which I guess is nice of him, except that she wants the only babies born because of her to be the eggs she donates to others because she has no intention of using them.

That is entirely her choice, and the fact that he was already trying to talk her out of making that choice, without a pregnancy even being a real thing, raises some serious red flags for me. Sure, he says these things in the hypothetical, but what about if she ever actually became pregnant? How would he react then? It doesn’t really sound nice to me, it sounds like a controlling thing to say.

Sorry, maybe it’s just me being paranoid, I just can’t really comprehend ever being serious friends with someone who’s adamantly pro-life, only because it’s clear that they do not have the pregnant person’s needs in mind, at all.

Anonymous said: i am a 22 year old girl and i am secretly pro choice. my 20 year old brother has made a few pro-life type comments in the past so i assume that he is pro life. i have never brought up this issue on any occasion with anyone in my family, but i would be afraid to try and argue with my brother about it. i suffer from depression and anxiety and i took time off of school to try and deal with it but my brother just thinks that i am stupid and lazy.

I am so sorry that you feel like you have to keep your beliefs a secret. Your brother seems like the type of person who gets stuck in their views, and unfortunately their views are incredibly harmful. Are you comfortable talking to him about it? Like, sitting him down and making him listen to how you feel?

Taking time off to deal with depression and anxiety is totally okay. You know what’s best for you. If your brother can’t see that, or understand it, that’s his problem.

Anonymous said: I have to do an essay for my character class and I chose to do it about Pro-Life because I am 100% for the fact that it is a woman's choice, it's her body. But care to give some tips and pointers about Pro-Life facts?

Hello. Please try to use gender neutral terms, as not everyone who can get pregnant is a woman! You are more than welcome to scroll through the blog and see which pro-life arguments we dispel that would suit your needs.

I’m not entirely sure why you’re doing an essay on being pro-life when you’re pro-choice? Unless it’s an opposing argument kind of thing?
