The vast amount of shit the forced brith advocates spew into the interwebs lends new meaning to the word grotesque. Our anti-choice friends have been faffing on long and hard about Dr. Kermit Gosnell conveniently forgetting about Savita Halappanavar’s terminal experience with their fetid dogma .
Let me spell it out, you antediluvian, dim-witted, anti-choice bastion of fuckwitttery.
Cases like Dr.Gosnell’s are exactly what happens when you limit women’s access to abortion. His practice was under-regulated and in clear violation of any sort of reasonable set of medical expectations. We need less of what Dr.Gosnell did, not more. Yet, you cro-magnon bible thumping gits harass and scare away ethical doctors and practices – you know places where women can get safe medical care – and leave them with the back ally option offered by Dr.Gosnell. This case is squarely on your heads my forced-birth friends, now and forever as your insipid campaign against women and their autonomy creaks along.
We now get a closer look at the hollow arguments you put forth in your crusade against women with a helpful deconstruction to show exactly how wrong you are.
If a choice of any kind supersedes a right to life, then the choice is not only wrong but unthinkable. (Oh completely, because being forced to give birth is fucking freedom loving fun.) In 1973, a handful of people dressed in black robes (A.K.A The Supreme Court – You know, one of the bastions of a free secular society that is holding the religious theocracy your are pining for at bay.) told the United States that life will not impede law.
(ed. Adding paragraph break to mitigate the crazy.)
While it is broadly known that abortion has been happening since ancient times, it was not blatantly lauded as a personal right to save your own life from the burden of being a mother or father (Yes, because you know what is best for each and every woman in the world, the view must be positively rosy from your religious high-horse.). Abortion was not an assumed option for married couples, but it was and continues to be for adulterers and those who are sexual active before marriage (Your constitution guaruntess freedom of religion and freedom from religion – follow your founding documents Theocrat and stop forcing your dogmatic shite down peoples throats). If you are prepared to have sex either before or outside of marriage, then be prepared for parenthood. (Yes, because all sex should be only for procreation…*facepalm forever*.) Sacrificing a child’s life for your own is the highest form of narcissism (Oh completely,because women need to be forced to give birth, mandatory pregnancy will only make family life and child-rearing easier. Why? Because god said so…)
But I love these idiot articles (I do as well, it makes showing how full of fecal matter Forced Birth Advocates are) ; it makes me thankful that I know THE God (Embracing mythology and fairy-tales to prove how right you are is prima-facie example of intellectual-assholery.) that knows the right answers (*ring-ring* It’s unsupported claims office, they want their statement back), that gives LIFE and loves us spite of us.
I’m smart enough(?) to know I don’t speak for God – He speaks for Himself while the prochoice rhetoric tries to speak for everyone despite our right to say no, which we have. (So, the god that happens to share your exact opinions is the only one allowed to speak, convenient that.) The only person that speaks for me is God (If you are hearing voices, you should consult a psychiatrist.) not some flippy idiot dressed in a ‘lady parts’ costume or a death-defying God hater (Kinda sounds like a superhero persona – The Masked Death Defying God Hater; it may have some mileage to it :).)
“He said MYTH, 1: Laws against abortion have always been based on concern about unborn life.”
The unborn have always been forefront in every illustration, every example and every instance of the Prolife Movement. The statement that abortion was not about the unborn is just plain ASININE: If it weren’t for the unborn victims and dead or injured women, there would not be an argument: MYTH EXPOSED.
The utter lack of reading comprehension on display is amazing. This is what the article said: (editorial note: I quote here from the original article being thoughtlessly dissected by the idjit of the day)
“Abortion was generally legal in the United States until the mid-19th century. At that time, physicians eager to professionalize obstetrics pressed state legislatures to outlaw midwifery and abortion while granting doctors sole authority over pregnancy and childbearing. State anti-abortion statutes were primarily justified on the grounds that women needed to be saved from uneducated folk practitioners, infections, future infertility and other physical risks.
In the courtroom, prosecutors rarely discussed the unborn, instead accusing abortion providers of preventing women from fulfilling their destiny: motherhood. When early feminists such as Susan B. Anthony opposed abortion, they argued that the disconnect between sexual intercourse and maternity endangered women’s chastity — at the time considered their main basis for moral standing and personal dignity.”
So arguing against the veracity of the provided historical context is one thing, but coming up with a statement like this is nothing more than mere confabulating: “The statement that abortion was not about the unborn is just plain ASININE”. I hate to break it to you, but there is only one asinine person in the room cupcake, and it happens to be you.
“TRUTH (?): This has to be the most tired of all myths of abortion and Roe. And since the author used Guttmacher, which is an offshoot of PLANNED PARENTHOOD, I would call their findings rather partial to the abortion agenda. However, in regard to illegal back alley abortions, I would say correctly that the Kermitt Gosnell trial is just the tip of the iceberg of other illegal abortion practitioners that practice in plain sight all over the United States.
Our understanding of what Roe is will justly show that this act of law is just exactly that, an act of law that has an agenda (What law isn’t based on a agenda?). Making abortion illegal will not stop abortions, just like drugs being illegal will not stop drug activity, manufacturing, distribution or deaths. HOWEVER, abortion always kills a living person and should never be legal for any reason (Guns kill people, thus should never be legal either). Making the argument that less WOMEN will die because it’s legal is IGNORANT (because writing in ALL CAPS definitely smites the ignorance-doers) ; the death of an immigrant woman at Gosnell’s facility should tip you off; again, just the tip of the abortion iceberg. Many women have died or have been injured from the abortion procedure SINCE ROE. (More have died due to complications during pregnancy – abortion is safer than giving birth.) Again, what the author does not report is what happens during an abortion procedure: THE UNBORN BABY DIES AND WAS THE INTENDED VICTIM. MYTH EXPOSED(I won’t actually address what the article is arguing, but I will project all of the forced birth rhetoric I can to the point incomprehensibility).”
The article actually says this:
Abortion rights advocates have argued that Roe shields women from “back-alley butchers.” But that is a consumer-protection argument, not an argument about what rights women have over their bodies. Before legalization, laws against abortion endangered women, keeping them from making fundamental decisions about their lives.
Seems like a reasonable claim no?
He said Myth, 3: Roe led to a huge increase in the number of abortions.
TRUTH(?): The author’s intent is to move you to see what an affiliated numbers cruncher, Guttmacher Institute, says about abortion statistics. The author remarks that Guttmacher reports at least 1 million abortions occurred per year prior to Roe. Interesting that there are real numbers regarding an illegal act…much like expecting the mafia to call in their activity so that we can study the statistics of organized crime. Guttmacher = Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the United States, funded by your tax dollars to lobby, fund and endorse liberal democrat politicians for election and reelection to extend and moralize abortion. MYTH EXPOSED.
See the pattern here? *argle-bargle* baby killers, *argle-bargle* liberal politicians, *argle-bargle*… The article actually says this:
Roe didn’t mark the beginning of an abortion era — it legalized an already widespread practice.
The “author” should have skipped referring to an outside source, as I imagine the arguments put forth make much more sense in the distorted house of mirrors that pro-life reasoning is. Pro-Tip: Referencing reality with regards to your fatuous arguments, presents an uncharitable juxtaposition of your stance. Practice in avoiding reality isn’t that hard for the religious, but I’m thinking in terms of the frothy corpulent blather you’re spewing on the rest of us that could be avoided.
He said Myth, 4: Women who end their pregnancies tend to suffer various psychological and physical illnesses.
TRUTH(?): I’ve heard it all…there is no connection to psychosis or disorder, “it’s all in your head”, every liberal university in the entire world has ruled out Post Abortion Stress Syndrome…I have to wonder at their criteria and who they actually ask (Maybe you should take your deluded self righteous ponderings, shove them your ass with the rest of your intellect and instead, go look at the study,and for once in your life make a decision based on evidence).
I have made the case for Planned Parenthood weeding out the proabort post abortive they ‘serviced’ to claim there is no after effect…..but I’m here to tell you that I do know about Post Abortion Stress Syndrome since I am post abortive( because your experience is the experience of all women). There is help and I can tell you that after MANY years of guilt, regret and shame that there is healing after abortion. I initially sought healing through alcohol, like many other post abortive women do (citation needed). Then one day God sat me down, told me I was a sinner that need Salvation (As mentioned previously, if Beings no one else can see is talking to you and giving advice, seek psychological help). The godless says it’s all in your head (citation needed), but THE GOD says He will heal you, if you only ask( Oh you mean if I turn off my brain and hope for lolly-pops and unicorns all will be well? I so in!!11!!) . MYTH EXPOSED (I’m thinking MYTH EXPOSED is similar to Checkmate Atheists!, but without the satire.)
He said Myth, 5: “Choice” guarantees woman the opportunity to decide whether to become a mother.
TRUTH(Wha? Oh I see what you did there): That is truth. Choice has many guarantees besides being a parent or not; it also guarantees your own right to life to be less than it was 40 years ago (what?). It may guarantee your family’s right to exterminate you when you’re too sick and old to make your own choice for life (Euthanasia! Abortion! Death Penalty! – No nuance involved with any of theses issues.) . Your choice to abort has made the choice to annihilate the generations that could have been born and had their own families (because under population is completely a problem…).
Your choice has made other laws to demoralize (do consult a dictionary, because this doesn’t mean what you think it means) unborn human life by the sex of the baby or perceived illness the baby may have . Your choice has demonized the right to teach our own children about how God hates abortion (As soon as they start teaching Islam in schools you can start teaching your particularly shitty excuse for a an Abrahamic religion). Exercising your right to choose is much like the addict’s right to shoot up; the addict thinks they are only hurting themselves but the reality is that it affects an entire family.
Choosing to abort takes your family’s right away from being a grandparent, aunt or uncle, sister or brother, friend and neighbor (Is there anyone else who should have presidence over my uterus, I think you missed the paper-boy and the gardener. They have no right to anything that goes in my body, and what your adocating is nothing less than slavery for women, you may now frack -off at your leisure.). Your choice can affect hundreds of people…so all of this just being about you???(When grandma can take a turn incubating the fetus, then we can talk.) MYTH EXPOSED.
If you are pregnant, God (? ,Put up or shut up, there is no evidence for God, so god can’t chose anyone, but apparently he can serve as a great vehicle for intimidating people to believe your particularly odious point of view) chose YOU, no matter the circumstances, to be a parent to that child. Choose LIFE, not a life of regret. (To each person, their own choice, it is not for you to make)
To conclude from the article, the sad reality of the situation:
As states pass laws making abortion practice untenable for doctors, a growing number of women live somewhere without an abortion provider. Fewer than half of states mandate sex education, and 26 give preference to “abstinence only” sex education, limiting what teenagers can learn about pregnancy prevention.
Women who lack the resources to limit reproduction — and, after giving birth, have no access to paid family leave or to quality day care — have been stigmatized by politicians. Rather than providing dignity and safety for all women, “choice” is often an economic privilege.
