oh, okay! well thanks for bringing it to my attention. i always appreciate fighting the good fight on my dashboard
who what what?
who what what?
Right, it’s like saying “I’m against slaughtering innocent kittens, but some evil man’s actions shouldn’t keep me from enjoying this delicious kitten burger.”
Right on! I may have stolen it from Godless Bitches, but the ‘neighbor murders’ analogy is mine.
This distraction is a thing I neither believe nor care about even a little bit.
I don’t care about the conditions by which someone became pregnant or whether or not they’re getting an abortion as a medical necessity or as a convenience. That doesn’t matter to me. That’s equality. The rape victim, the medically endangered, the person who just doesn’t want to have a baby, the person who doesn’t want to be pregnant, all those reasons are equal. I believe in equality and in equality of opportunity and if you don’t give people that then the real, pragmatic consequences are worse. You’re asking for a black market in a medical procedure, you’re imposing some value-of-life that doesn’t matter to anyone onto people who don’t even exist!
If you find out your neighbor was murdered, it’s upsetting, it’s frightening and it may even threaten your security. If you find out your neighbor had an abortion, you can sleep just fine that night. Why? Because you don’t fucking care about your neighbors abortion. It’s not your problem. Go to bed.
1) I actually don’t get to choose the terminology, and neither do you even though you’re clearly trying to for emotional reasons. However, the term is fetus. It is distinct from an infant.
2) The kidney patient can’t necessarily make choices about staying alive either. They could, and often do, die on a waiting list, there aren’t unlimited kidney’s out there, very few people who need them get one.
I don’t see how it’s justice to twist a pregnant individual’s arm and force her to carry through using her body to support someone else. If the government can’t force me to give up a kidney to a sick relative who needs one and will die without it, why would it be OK for it to force a pregnant individual to give up another part of the body for nearly a year at all kinds of expense to said individual?
Reblogging a controversial remark with a strongly worded counterpoint shall be akin to limiting the original blogger’s free speech. For how can speech be free is others are using their free speech as well?
Yeah, sure, I ignored her right to have an opinion, by commenting on it, you’re really selling me on that. You do realize respect isn’t something you have a right to?
By making declarations about what is and isn’t acceptable to her, she’s seeking to remove power from individuals and since it’s her value system she’s basing her argument off of, and not, say, the Constitution of the United States of America (and to the republic for which it stands one nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.), she’s implying that she’s the authority. I’m explaining why that’s unconstitutional.
She asserted that the only acceptable situation for someone to get an abortion was a fallopian tube pregnancy. Her decision to permit this reason for abortion and no others suggests she is so well-versed in issues concerning pregnancy that she must be aware of every single individual case. Either that or she’s talking out of her ass, but that couldn’t be the case, right?
Why is it Paula’s decision to declare that fallopian tube pregnancies are OK to abort, but anything else is not? Why can’t it be up to each pregnant individual to evaluate the situation and make a determination about what’s best based on that and live with the consequences of that decision? You may not like it, Paula may not approve, but that’s freedom, that’s liberty.
I’m not worried if you think I’m a mean guy because I see uneducated, unqualified, self-centered people like Paula shaming people who need abortions and sticking their noses up and calling my friends and my readers sinners and evil and murders and, yes, I “attack,” if by “attack” you mean compose a strongly worded blog post on a public forum that anyone is free to ignore. Deal with it, kid.
