Pro Choice doesn’t mean Pro Abortion.

It does though. You can’t be pro-choice without supporting every single choice. Pro-parenthood, pro-adoption and pro-abortion. 

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being pro-abortion. It helps reduce the negative stigma surrounding the procedure. Statements like “pro-choice doesn’t mean pro-abortion,” however, only perpetuate that stigma further.

YOU are important. You have the right to govern your own life. Don’t let anyone ever try to convince you that you must put anyone else’s life before your own.

A pro-life group in Lansing, Michigan says fetal models have helped save a baby from a late-term abortion. Officials with 40 Days for Life in Lansing posted a picture of a set of fetal models that it says helped changed a woman’s mind about having an abortion.“ I showed the 30-week model to a late-term mom who left the clinic and DID NOT have an abortion. Praise God!” the group wrote.

Literally none of these except the final one is anatomically correct. You literally have a minuturized born infant model as your 12 weeks ant 8 weeks fetus, this is BLATANT misinformation and lies.
Additionally abortions at 30 weeks? Aren’t legal ANYWHERE in the world unless the fetus is already fucking dead or cannot survive outside the uterus on it’s own. You didn’t save ANYTHING, or else you are lying about gestational age OR they weren’t actually going for an abortion or you made the whole story up.
This is propaganda, misinformation and lies, it’s disgusting and it doesn’t actually help your movement. This is (among the reasons) why pro choicers think pro liars are full of shit, and refuse to respect you or your movement.

The worst thing we ever did to our unborn children was when we began calling them “fetuses” instead of what they truly are: human beings.

Wow. So calling something a medically correct term is now wrong. Should we not call infants infants? Or teenagers adolescents?

Yes, let’s ignore science: Fetuses are sentient. They can speak. They have likes, dislikes, turn-ons, hobbies, jury duty, they even have the new Sprint Family plan with other fetuses within a 5 mile radius of them.

Did you know that pregnant women have been fired for using the bathroom to vomit, needing to carry a water bottle on the job, or asking to sit on a stool instead of standing in place all day? While employers have to make allowances like these for other types of temporary disabilities, a number of bad court decisions have encouraged them to feel they can get away with firing or mistreating pregnant workers with impunity.
It’s disgraceful and unacceptable that at a time when unnecessary budget cuts are decimating food, medical, and educational supports for low-income families, pregnant women continue to be pushed out of their jobs just as they take on all the expenses of having a new baby.
Read more about the Pregnant Workers Fairness Actand take action by contacting your congressperson.

This is unacceptable. Pregnant workers need more protection. With a child coming up they need employment more than ever. Please contact your rep.

Fucking bullshit.

'No you can't have paid maternity leave''What do you mean you have special needs when you're pregnant?'

Pro-lifers, look closely. People can and do lose their jobs for being pregnant.

They do. And still no paid maternity leave. We’re the only “civilized nation” that does not have it. Swaziland and Papua New Guinea are our company in this no paid maternity leave. Since the percent of people who have an abortion cite the reason they are is not being able to take the time to be pregnant, you’d think it’d be a pretty prolife thing to do to help protect jobs of pregnant people. And maybe just maybe bring America into the radical notion of paid maternity leave.

Anonymous said: I had an abortion three days ago, the one by pill that makes you miscarry, and it was the most painful thing I've gone through in a while. To the people who say pro-choicers use abortion as birth control, I would never put myself through that again. I feel no regret, the thing didnt even have a heartbeat yet. It was the best choice for myself. But the pain of it is not something id ever want to experience again or "use as birth control" as pro lifers like to throw around. We're allowed mistakes.

I’m sorry that you went through such a painful experience, but I am also glad that you were able to make the best choice for yourself. Thank you for sharing your story. Take care of yourself. <3

Anonymous said: You know, even if consent was consent to pregnancy (which it isn't, but let's pretend for a moment that pro-lifers are right about something), consent can still be revoked at any point.

Exactly. It’s like none of them know how consent works. It seriously makes me worry about how they handle anything that requires consent. “Well you said yes to this kinda related thing already, so you’ve agreed to do this too. You can’t back out now”
